Tincal lab Challenge 2021 "Jewelry and Nature" at Tincal lab



Tincal lab Challenge 2021 "Jewelry and Nature"
6 Nov - 31 Dec 2021
Opening : November 6 / 4 pm
Tincal Lab, Porto Portugal

It’s not difficult to think that nature can inspire any artistic creation.

Beautiful in form and rich in content, it represents an unlimited universe of fauna, flora and landscape. From the most microscopic scale to the most universal context, it includes natural phenomena unable to tame, sources of life (and death) and essential resources. Colors, materials, textures. Shapes, sounds, movements. It generally excludes the human creation and the built environment, but nowadays, it may be difficult to know a corner of the planet that has not been affected by humankind in any way.

Even though it is something that exists long before and beyond us, its conservation is constantly being menaced by human growth and technological innovation, in an ironic struggle in which human beings seem to be able to destroy the very basis of their livelihood.

As usual, we don't want to restrict and we challenge jewelers to go further: why not explore the contrast between the natural and artificial world? Study the ramifications of Natural Sciences, ranging from Biology to Geology or Chemistry? Why not question the action of humankind and appeal to sustainability and ecological awareness? Reflect on the current situation and human vulnerability to natural causes greater than us?

A challenge that demands to a look inside, as well as to the world around us.
