INHORGENTA MUNICH honours New York designer Lauren Tickle
MUNICH, March 24, 2013 – In cooperation with the international jewellery designers’ competition Preziosa Young 2013, Messe München has conferred the INHORGENTA MUNICH special award on New York designer Lauren Vanessa Tickle.
The 27-year-old artist is being honoured for her project ‘Increasing Value’, which presents pieces of jewellery made of US dollar bills, silver, latex and synthetic thread.
Traditionally, the area of contemporary designer jewellery is of great importance to INHORGENTA MUNICH.
So as one of the world’s leading trade shows for jewellery, timepieces and lifestyle, INHORGENTA MUNICH in cooperation with Preziosa Young honours young designers each year for their outstanding jewellery design.
Renate Wittgenstein, Product Manager of INHORGENTA MUNICH, says: “With this award, we would like to offer young jewellery designers a
springboard to introduce their work to an international audience from the trade.
“We look forward to welcoming Lauren Tickle at INHORGENTA MUNICH 2014 on 14 – 17 February 2014.”
Ms. Tickle gets a free participation to the total value of EUR 2,000 and thus has the opportunity to present her works of art in the special exhibition area ‘Innovation Forum’ in Munich in February 2014.
In her work, Lauren V. Tickle deals with the subjects of values and adornment.
In the process of exploring values, banknotes of a definite value are taken apart into graphic elements and are finally assembled into an art object of a much higher value.
“I force wearers of jewellery and observers to reflect on the concept of adornment and decoration in our society,” said the young designer.
“One of the most conscious of human decisions is what or what not to wear.”
As a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (Master of Fine Arts, Jewelry and Metalsmithing), this 27-year-old can already look back on numerous exhibitions in the last five years.
For this year’s Preziosa Young, pieces were submitted by a total of 225 jewellery artists up to 35 years of age.
Eight finalists will exhibit their work as part of a special exhibition in Florence at the Marino Marini Museum of contemporary art from 21 June to 20 July, 2013.
The pieces from the competition were already previewed at INHORGENTA MUNICH in February 2013.
There will be a further chance to see the jewellery in Legnica, Poland on the occasion of the Silver Festival 2013.
