THE SACRED & THE PROFANE
Workshop and exhibition project // Munich Jewellery Week 2019
Movements, ornaments, words and objects outlined the sacred and the profane.
For hundreds of years, both sides of life had been inextricably linked, according to Mircea Eliade, 20th century's most influential historian of religion. Art has always been connected to magic and mysteries.
"The Sacred & The Profane" focuses on and examines rituals, symbols, objects and practices that still prevail - often disguised as trivialities - in our rational, consumption oriented and medialized world.
