Katarína Nábilková represented at the international jewellery exhibition What now?
2. 9 – 30. 9. 2023
Schmuckkunst, Mariahilferplatz 3, Graz, Austria
Katarína Nábilková, a student of the Studio of Concept – Object – Meaning (K.O.V.), is represented at the international jewellery exhibition What now? organised by the Schmuckkunst platform. Katarína is presenting a collection of her jewellery that uses unused adrenaline injection needles.
The jewellery collection is made of nowadays unused adrenaline needles. The precious metals used in the jewellery are not visible at first sight and do not attract attention. The collection departs from aesthetic jewellery with material "traditional" value and the social prestige associated with it. It carries a philosophical background that expresses the wearer's relationship to the jewellery. In this way, jewellery is confronted with its environment and challenges stereotypes.
The non-commercial association Plattform Schmuckkunst was founded in 2019 and is based in the centre of Graz, Austria. It is currently inviting jewellery artists to participate in its upcoming group exhibition What Now? which seeks to reflect on various important social and political environmental issues. This year the exhibition will run from the 2nd to the 30th of September.
