Obsessed! Paper

Memento, perception and place. With jewels that seek to manifest the intangible, these artists reexamine the metaphysical archetypes in the everyday. Some call on origin as a reference point, employing the intimacy of lived environments as exhibition spaces: home studios open a portal to a private or imaginary world, living rooms invite us to reflect on home as an extension of the Self, and community spaces illuminate the Self as a plural representation of where we’re from. Still others offer ‘disposable’ objects rendered in precious materials, or handmade materials that tell the story of their environment; visual metaphors to trigger a shift in perspective, and contemplate our relationship to objects in the first place. Above all, these artists distil emotion into physical tokens imbued with the deeper significance of our entanglements.



The sanctuary, a place where you can rest, heal, and if you are lucky, call your home. Safe space, (chosen) family, country, hug, shelter, house, cave, tree, etc… It can be called several names. We brought five artists freshly hatching from their school’s workshop, ready to take off in the scary world. With this show, they will welcome you in their nest, combining a selection of jewellery and fine arts installations. We will together take a moment to feel hope, search, longing for life and future.

HUIS / DUM / בַּיִת / CASA


Surrounded by our life we are at home. House as naked foundation which changes into home when we paint life on the walls. House as a shield, a container for the sacred moments of the personal. House as a shelter for togetherness, a place of welcoming, a glimpse into the other. House as a metaphor of belonging. Three alumni students and one teacher from MASieraad present an installation of four constructed spaces, a co-living scenario for exploring the relationships of jewellery and habitation. Within a neighborhood, each one stands on their private plot, alongside, creating a conversation.

1221 will provide an intriguing experience which satisfies both your mouth and also your eyes. They offer a medium to explore the tension between food and jewellery by introducing various shapes and gestures of ‘chopsticks’, the interaction of body and food with the gold of autumn. 1221 will collaborate with Picniq during the whole period of the OBSESSED! Jewellery Festival. Picniq Antwerp presents vigorous and bold flavors of the far-east Asia. It showcases a contemporary interpretation of the traditional cuisine that evokes the tastes of Korea.

FATA MORGANA shows objects of desire made by Stefanie Verhoef. For this highlight exhibition the artist continued and expanded her Desire Spoon, one specific element from her graduation collection Muted, from 2015. The spoons sparkle a certain longing where the subject of the elusiveness of transience keeps returning. Additionally new works within existing collections are shown, where new developments have taken place and new techniques are explored. Stefanie Verhoef’s collections tell stories of personal observations or fascinations. Her work reflects her state of mind and as creating is a mode of thinking, it is a mode of processing. In the ongoing process of creating, she allows her perspective to shift and her designs to grow.
