Leonor Hipólito: Splendour of wearability
Splendour of wearability
25th March - 24th April
Museum S. Roque, Lisbon.
"The body, borderline of two worlds, the personal and the social, became along epochs the ideal platform where emotions, relations and stories are revealed.
In a language pliant to the needs of each culture jewels charm and reflect what each of us concedes as being precious.
Taking as a starting point works of the Museum of S. Roque the interest of this project lies beyond their splendour: in what they potencially reflect, giving space for new interpretations on usage and meaning in jewellery, offering views beyond the ornamental, where the body becomes performative."
