Findings: Manon van Kouswijk book launch
We're excited to announce the publication of a new book by Manon van Kouswijk, to be launched on Saturday August 8th, 2-4pm.
“Findings” places some of my recent works in the context of a series of tracings that I have made for this book from a collection of photographs. They trace the typology of bead necklaces and brooch motifs, historical and contemporary examples of jewellery worn and on display and other situations where jewellery performs. In a series of short texts Benjamin Lignel responds to the ideas and methodologies that connect the works and the traced images.
