Shimmering Shards of Luck
Triple Parade, 4th Biennale for Contemporary Jewellery
Shanghai, China

My essay ‘Shimmering Shards of Luck’ has been published in the Triple Parade catalogue. This text about shininess as a forgotten quality in contemporary jewellery emerged from a visit to De Nieuwe Kerk on the day that a visitor ruined a multimillion dollar artwork of Jeff Koons with a touch of a fingertip. The text is part of the research project Speaking Jewellery of St Lucas School of Arts Antwerp (Research Platform Precious Dialogue) and reveals why I appreciate a damaged artwork by Koons more than an intact one.
