The Cass blurs the lines between jewellery and performance with new exhibition

This January, pay a visit to ‘FlockOmania’, an exhibition created by jewellery artist Zoe Robertson at The Cass, London Metropolitan University.

‘FlockOmania’ showcases wearable objects that explore the relationship between jewellery and performance, by blurring the lines between these two apparently unrelated disciplines, and involving sound, film, dance and photography in the process.

The exhibition will centre around fifteen sculptural jewellery objects that have been meticulously handmade using a mix of traditional craft skills and new technology. These will set the scene for a performance-based exploration between objects, the body and space.

Through this, the exhibition will challenge the traditional display and use of jewellery. The objects break away from static display, instead being used to create a space where dance artists improvise movement and encourage audience participation. During the exhibition there will be two such afternoon dance interventions, on 13 and 18 January.

‘FlockOmania’ is at The Cass Bank Gallery from 9 – 26 January 2017.
Central House, 59-63 Whitechapel High Street, London, E1 7PF
