Common Stories, Joya Brava Association. Curator Jorge Manilla
Exhibition at Munich Jewelry Week
Since April 2015, the Chilean Association Joya Brava has been working with Jorge Manilla as tutor and curator of our most recent Project “Common Stories”, exhibition that brings together the works of 20 Chilean jewelers.
This workshop lasted over a year, had 2 in-person stages in Chile and one remote stage, which made it an alternative to the traditional training processes, with concentrated periods of work and swift progress and others more paused, of reflection and maturation.
Thus, “Common Stories” presents 20 series of works relating personal visions on identity, making apparent what has become invisible for being so present.
Domestic esthetics, home embellishment, aging of materials, patches, precarious repairs and all classes of ingenious solutions transforming and maintaining useful the objects that surround us, were the starting point of our research. We believe that repairing and protecting are profoundly Latin American customs that gave form to our esthetical perception.
Common Stories will be presented at 3Stations Art Studio, located in Welserstrasse 15, Munich, from march 9th till march 12th. The opening will be at 3pm on Thursday 9th.
