“Medusa. Jewellery and Taboos” – The kick-off

It’s an honor and a pleasure to be the digital partner of the Museum of Modern Art of Paris for the “Medusa” exhibition. In all modesty, this collaboration seems quite natural to me because the site I’ve created is also a vector for the same refreshing and cross-disciplinary approach to jewel. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, I’ll be presenting articles, videos and photos highlighting this approach on all the french jewelry post’s media platforms.

Exceptional, the “Medusa” exhibition raises the subject of the taboos and prejudices related to the jewel. Through some 400 pieces signed by jewelers, artists or simply just anonymous, it shows how jewelry is a part of the world of creation as a laboratory for treating form and innovation. Different ways of using materials, bridges spanning different worlds, and some scandalous figures … whether a novice or an expert, several visits are necessary as “Medusa” is rich in tales, history, unknown names and in spectacular or extremely simple pieces.

I firstly featured the setting up of the “Medusa” exhibition along with the views of its curator, Anne Dressen, and its scientific advisors, Michèle Heuzé and Benjamin Lignel. Now I’ll present to you a rundown on the collectors, lenders, artists, jewelers and others from the world of the jewel who were present at the opening. An eclectic bunch all enthusiastic about this exhibition-event in Paris.
