(smow) blog compact: Craft & Bling Bling – Fake at Depot Basel

For us there is very little that epitomises fakeness better than Bling – bold, flash, arrogant jewellery distracting from the soullessness of the wearer.

Or the object if we’re talking about hideous bejewelled bottles and the like.

For their summer 2014 exhibition Depot Basel invited 12 jewellery designers to present their own interpretation of “Fake”

Organised in conjunction with the contemporary jewellery magazine Current Obsession Craft & Bling Bling – Fake presents a collection of objects that promise to explore the subject in context of jewellery history, contemporary art and society and the various contemporary jewellery mediums.

And which we fully expect to be anything but soulless Bling!

In addition to the jewellery the exhibition presents works of art by Cloe Floirat which tackle the issue graphically. 2D.

Craft & Bling Bling – Fake runs at Depot Basel, Voltastrasse 43, 4056 Basel from Thursday June 5th until Sunday July 6th.

On the evening of Monday June 16th Depot Basel will host the launch party for the accompanying edition of Current Obsession.
