Beautiful Objects is The Aram Gallery’s first exhibition on jewellery. The exhibition shows beautiful, thought provoking objects by contemporary working designers. The Aram Gallery is eager to compare the design process of the makers with processes they have explored and learnt from in previous exhibitions. Taking these exhibits as their guide they question the motivates and what inspires these designers in a drive to demystify their process.
To accompany each designer’s exhibit is a contextual object; something which was related to making of the piece. These background objects expand on a designer’s methods – they are a snapshot of their thinking. Every supporting piece has been proposed by the exhibitor with little curatorial intervention, so presenting a true and clear picture of their methods. In addition, the gallery has asked each participant some tailored questions, the answers to which will further illuminate on their approach.
There are a number of international players who dominate the jewellery scene, both makers and galleries. The Aram Gallery draw attention to the wealth of contemporary jewellers living and working in the UK.
