PEARL is an exhibition initially brought together by Caroline Broadhead, Lin Cheung, Melanie Georgacopoulos, Maria Militsi and Frances Wadsworth Jones, through their teaching at the Central Saint Martins BA Jewellery Design course in London.
The exhibition included works from the five artists and was shown at SEASON as a part of the London Design Festival 2022.
To the exhibition with the same title at PLATINA in Stockholm, five more artists are invited; Hilde De Decker, Manon Van Kouswijk, Reka Lörinz, Annika Pettersson and Catarina Silva.
The work of the artists spans across different fields and tackles different subject matters, yet they all share a mutual fascination with the pearl. The strength in this group is the diversity of each individuals’ ideas and approaches to a single subject matter.
Their work explores new and innovative ways of working with the pearl, how it can be re- presented, whether that is through the manipulation of the material itself, the form it might take, through referencing its place in cultural history, or, finding imaginative ways in which to reassess its position at the heart of jewellery's system of values.
