Flora Vagi, 2020, Hungary
My works are like the trees, that are rooted deep beneath the ground, but reaching up towards a limitless sky, searching for answers sometimes never asked. Through my pieces, I try to attract people, to doubt, to question what they see, to desire touch. Museums have a similar effect on people. One enters and already feels to be in a different, isolated world, separate from the outside, distinct from the ordinary… they enter a quest, or they travel in time, or go on a journey in an artist’s mind. In every case the museum offers an experience where one feels and thinks, takes his/her own pace to experience things and the surrounding space. Contemporary jewellery offers a such an experience, but from another perspective, so this way the museum can hold a double meaning giving space to this wearable form of art.
