"Dream and reality, jewels" at Galerie CEBRA

Dream and reality, jewels
20 Apr – 15 May 2024
Galerie CEBRA, Düsseldorf Germany

“Dream and reality, jewels” (brooches, rings, bracelets and earrings). Reality itself is a dream because dreaming is simple, we all do it, but making dreams come true is something else. Life itself is a dream within a dream.

In “Dream and Reality” contemporary and traditional jewelry techniques are mixed. In some jewelry, the provocative subtlety of “disposability” becomes more important when confronted by onlookers who say they are made of waste.

Some express the personal struggle between individual identity and external values and document a journey of self awareness in which they capture the conflict and struggle between individuals and society; dreams as reality and reality as dream.

On the other hand, there are the jewelry that provoke reactions, feelings, humor and irony and do not go unnoticed.
