The GET EMOTIONAL exhibition will take place as part of Sofia Design Week and is the first of a series of events and exhibitions which aim to present a new direction in the gallery’s concept – a space for contemporary art and design objects and jewellery.
The GET EMOTIONAL project’s goal is not only to show contemporary trends in this area, but also to present a piece of jewelley as an emotional object which in addition to reflecting identity can also create one.
Twelve artists take part in the exhibition, each of them with three to five pieces connected with a specific emotional state. The connection between the emotion and the object (piece of jewellery) will be shown through a special photo shoot( Irina Lazarova – stylist, Asen Ivanov – photographer).
In each of the twelve photographs (one for each artist) the human body is present only partially, it is the space which the object (piece of jewellery) transforms – when two types of matter have an encounter, one of them usually prevails: wearing a design, we often take its look and comply with its colours and form, thus submitting ourselves to it and embracing a new disposition and emotion.
After the official opening the exhibition can be seen in TESTA gallery till 30.06. Part of the gallery’s space is specifically designed by arch. Henriette Denise for exhibiting contemporary art and design objects and jewellery.
