Suzanne Syz brings the jewelry to Art Basel with an amazing project ♦ ︎
That designing jewelry is an art nobody doubts it. But there are those who do more, like the Swiss designer Suzanne Syz, who with the project Magnifying, by Sylvie Fleury, invites contemporary artists to re-imagine the jewelery box as a sculpture. So much so that the idea is part of the Art Basel scheduled in the Swiss city (11-17 June 2018). Sylvie Fleury not only designed a jewelry box, but also created an engaging environment that interacts with the work to create a happening, incorporating the visitor into the work and bringing the project to a new dimension.
According to the artist’s intentions, visitors become jewels themselves by interacting with the installation, sitting on an inflatable brooch-shaped display or looking at themselves in the mirror of a giant clock, while nearby a huge earring turns into sculpture. Suzanne Syz, for its part, also proposes jewels that allude to the period of Pop Art, makes use of enamel to create hyper realistic earrings, bends the titanium into small sculptures with diamonds, very appreciated by those who love design. And the art, of course. Giulia Netrese
