ANDROGYNY: JEWELLERY BEYOND GENDER

,

There is no better physical example of the origin of genders than androgyny. In my work I proceed from a term of gender as a deconstruction of wholeness that carries male and female duality. I ask: how to recreate the quality of wholeness without simply combining materials in jewellery? This becomes possible when applying innovative techniques and hybrid materials.

In the hybrid material there are all the ultimate qualities you can think of. When you touch its surface long enough, you start to feel its wholeness – the sum of opposites of natural and synthetic fused into smooth and homogenous matter – it is steady and self-contained.

Before the components of jewellery became a finished piece, they had to undergo several phases of modification – from material to digital. Manually created clay shapes are 3D scanned by phone app and transformed into millions of pixels. The digital file cut by machines becomes physically perfect only because of the presence of individual.
