LOVE•&•HATE discordance in contemporary jewelry
There is a thin line between love and hate.
Science proves how these two feelings activate the same nervous circuits of our brain, though hate keeps traces of judgment and rationality. Emotions that appear to be polar opposites, in reality are intimately connected in the human brain. This could explain why both can lead to similar acts of extreme behaviour – evil or heroic – often irrational.
The exhibition project LOVE•&•HATE follows the curiosity for a match or a collision of different materials, discordant forms and ventured combinations. Attraction or repulsion can be behind a specific attention to a formal research, able to find an unexpected balance among elements sometimes very dissimilar, to define new aesthetics, and become a crossroad of strong emotions.
