The jewelry department „Het Sieraad“, Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam invited Susan Pietzsch/ Schmuck2 for a workshop project.
Ever since it was invented, the car has not only represented technological ingenuity but also evoked connotations of very human qualities like mobility, freedom and luxury. For many people a car is more than just a mode of transport: it is linked to power and even eroticism. Cars are advertised in terms of pleasure, aesthetics, awareness and flexibility – all notions that apply equally to the discourse surrounding jewellery. You could say, then, that both a car and a piece of jewellery are „tools“ of personal expression.
The students have been exploring the similarities and differences associated with this unusual combination in the Workshop.
The final presentation had been shown on two stages; PRPS (Public Rietveld Project Space)and at Citroen Auto Garage in June 2012.
In July 2012 a part of the exhibition had been shown in the exhibition EXTREME CRAFTS at Freies Museum Berlin.
