THE JEWEL AND THE JEWELLER present the exhibition Exquisite Corpse
Based on the surrealist game the exquisite corpse, jewellers Kay van Dyk, Joel Fitzwell and Katie Pascoe construct a series of necklaces with a top, middle and bottom without knowing what each other has made. Together they are assembled to make a jeweller’s Exquisite Corpse.
Pascoe, Fitzwell and van Dyk operate as a collaborative contemporary jewellery collective called Project 21. Exquisite Corpse was first exhibited as part of the inaugural Nelson Jewellery Week in March 2021, where 9 necklaces were shown at 18A Project Space, Nelson. Project 21’s intention is to grow the series to 21 pieces with 4 more showings to be arranged over the next year. The Jewel and The Jeweller is the first stop on this exciting tour, where 3 more Exquisite Corpse necklaces are added to the display. In this way, each exhibition has a unique identity as the body of works changes with the addition of new ‘corpses’.
