The weight of 21 Grams is a mysterious concept, both imaginative and literally. The idea has inspired film makers, song writers, fine artists, novelists and documentary makers, but until today no jewellery makers.
With this exhibition Ruudt Peters has invited several artists to challenge jewelry makers to create a new work of art, especially made for this show and concept, that translates the idea of the soul in a physical object that weighs no more than 21 Grams.
21 Grams is on view from November 7 – December 10 at the Arts and Crafts Museum Hangzhou, China. The exhibition will be traveling to other countries, such as Germany, Poland, Belgium and the Netherlands.
