The word ‘findings’ has multiple meanings. It is commonly used to describe the outcome of research, investigation or a discovery however it also refers to the small tools and various materials used by an artisan: a jeweller’s findings.
“Findings” places some of Manon van Kouswijk’s recent jewellery works in the context of a series of tracings that she has made for this book from a large collection of photographs. They trace the typology of bead necklaces and brooch motifs, historical and contemporary examples of jewellery worn and on display and other situations in which jewellery has a presence. In a series of short texts French artist, writer and curator Benjamin Lignel responds to the ideas and methodologies that underpin the works and the traced images.
