Transplantation: A Sense of Place and Culture

Occurs every week on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday

British and Australian Narrative Jewellery
curated By Norman Cherry

Opening Event: 6pm – 8pm, Friday, December 13.
Note: The gallery is closed from Sat, 21 December 2013 – Mon, 6 January 2014.

Transplantation is a travelling exhibition that will be showcasing a group of 12 contemporary jewellery artists from the UK and Australia. Their work explores cultural, familial and artistic transplantation that has occurred within and between the UK and Australia, but also includes the influence of other countries.

Curator, Professor Norman Cherry (Lincoln,UK) believes in the importance of tof jewellery as ‘probably the most exciting of today’s art forms’, steming from its unique ability to record memory and experience and to convey stories, metaphors and histories in a way that is both wearable and portable. He has carefully chosen the 12 artists to be included in the exhibition and each artist offers a unique perspective on the theme of transplantation.

Each artist has taken a journey, tackling issues that arise from their own personal experiences of transplantation, to inform the concept and outcome of their works. The use of objects that carry real or imposed metaphor and narrative is an important element in each of the artists work
