CREATIVE DIRECTOR STATEMENT
"Jewelry is about details and perceptions which the viewer’s eye translates, discovers and unveils, but it is also about diversity of traditions and cultures that speak for themselves in each jewelry piece. Individual and unexpected personal experiences that each artist expresses with his/her own energy and unique vision. "
Laura Helena Aureli
MIGRANTES is a project of Contemporary Jewelry that addresses this theme in the present context. Working from different approaches, but with a common goal, four designers (two chileans, an argentine and an uruguayan) unite to put together this exhibition, telling from their own spirit, their vision of migrating: the movements that animals have had to do, due to the disaster of the environment; the original peoples facing the conquering opressors; the experience of living in a country where you have not been born and to which you emigrate. The exhibition refers to the new migrants and how we must talk of equality of rights and opportunities.
