Edmond à Venise, the concept store of Palazzo Contarini Polignac, begins its annual programming dedicated to the contemporary jewel accompanied by the curator Valeria Accornero. Memorable jewels, symbolic jewels, jewels that speak of Venice and the Palace, with a Parisian touch will be presented at the
Venice Design Week from 12 to 20 October 2019.
Vernissage Sunday 13 October at 7.00 pm in the presence of the artists.
Three creators, three women with a varied professional path between Italy and France: each of them has created a capsule collection, bringing her style into dialogue with the imaginary linked to the Lagoon and its history.
Catherine Le Gal played with essential, minimal and transformist forms. The long earring, to be worn alone, is inspired by the oars in the lagoon. On the simple circle around the wrist there is a sudden flash: it is a colorful pastille in Arlecchino clothes. Even the double-faced earrings reveal a side in which the color is “scratched” like the walls of ancient buildings.
Robin Clerici, was inspired by the shapes of Venetian chandeliers in the Palazzo to make large flower rings. They are accompanied by small bees that rest on the choker or on the bracelet, a reminder of the honey that is produced in the Lagoon. Bronze necklaces and plastrons are a tribute to Burano lace making that resemble lace in a stylized version.
Sylvie Doagio, has researched the history of Venice and of the artists of the past. The idea for the collection comes in particular from the painter and miniaturist Rosalba Giovanna Carriera and her portraits of eighteenth-century ladies presented with strength and delicacy. Thus was born an imaginary character-sculpture declined in pendant, earrings and bracelet.
