Re — form
Vladimir Nabokov Museum continues the project "Jewellery Vector" with a showcase of contemporary designer jewellery. The first event in the framework of this project, the exhibition "Re-form" (upcycling and recycling in jewellery), will be held at the end of May 2022. It is timed to coincide with the 21st International Conference on Fashion and Design (organised by St Petersburg University of Industrial Technologies and Design and the Russian Museum of Ethnography).
The theme of the exhibition is closely connected to the problems of ecology. Today, modern society is concerned about the catastrophically impending environmental crisis on the planet. The exhibition is an invitation to take a look at junk, rubbish, and unnecessary things through the eyes of an artist, to see the beauty in the fading material world and make it modern. The exhibition "Re-form" will feature works by more than 20 artists from St Petersburg and Moscow who use upcycling and recycling to show museum visitors how to make beautiful new decorations by influencing the environment.
