Plastic in the “Medusa” exhibition

Here we see a necklace, bracelet and ring cut out of an ordinary sheet of polythene. “This object, in the guise of a jewelry set, created a dialogue between jewelry and art,” says designer Carole Guinard, who produced it in 1987 for the first Biennale du Bijou in Paris. “The ultra-clean design provided a simple answer to the ambiguous questions posed by multiples, endless reproductions and copies with no originals.” The stock remaining from 1987 is now on sale at €25 a piece in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs bookstore. A splendid collector’s item.
