Open call for established and emerging artists and designers, to present a work of experimental jewellery, still unreleased.

Theme of the competition:
Fermento!
AGING and EVOLUTION
Affinamento ed evoluzione

For 10 years, the main focus of the competition has been inspired by the chemical phenomenon of fermentation as the metaphor underlining the evolutionary aspect of contemporary experimental jewellery, which represents a crossroads between individual research paths and international collective atmospheres. A piece of jewellery is the result of a pure fermenting process.

The general context of the project Gioielli in Fermento, as it to say about the term fermentation, ideally refers to a suitably “transformed” result, an art jewellery piece, which constitutes the outcome of the research itself, linked to phases of preparation, experimentation, quality determination.
Apart from the chemical phenomenon, which has a precise role in the world of wine, over the years we have tried to investigate this concept more and more by putting it in relation with the world of contemporary body ornaments.

At the turn of the X Edition, the theme, from fermentation, leads to Aging and Evolution with the purpose of communicating something even more accomplished and beyond the inherent state of maturation.

The winning work will express a singular creative energy, that original individuality of research studio jewellery that represents the idea of contemporary fermento (restlessness, excitement, trepidation, upheaval …) through the maturity of the path, experienced by its author.

Deadline: 23.2.2020
