Ligia Dias, Cesar, 2018

Ornament is crime. Until it isn’t. Martina Simeti opens the strongroom of her new exhibition space, a former silversmith’s laboratory, to present a selection of ornaments that includes pieces by Sylvie Auvray, Friedrick Becker, Ligia Dias, Aboubakar Fofana, Shilpa Gupta, GianCarlo Montebello, Viola Pisenti, Bernhard Schobinger, Francesco Simeti, Grazia Varisco and Betony Vernon. 

This is an invitation to a blind date without formal certainties, where the conceptual, the sensorial and the technical meet in an enquiry on the links between body ornaments and art, not to strive for a common, shared definition. [Excerpt from the press release]
