For “Hermetic Dialogues”, her first solo show, Marina Stanimirovic initiates conversations between contrasting materials, volumes and shapes. Her interest is located not in the isolated, individual entities as such, but in their relationships and interactions.

“Jewels are for me movable objects that evolve and engage with the body”. This obsession for adaptability led her researches to focus on finding new alternatives of hinges and links beyond the jewellery uses. Mostly inspired by architectures and mechanical objects, she started exploring industrial materials such as rubber tubing and window seals. These new elements gave to her design the malleability and flexibility that she was looking for. Present in our everyday, it became also a tangible way to incorporate a sense of reality, questioning the notions of value and preciousness.

Toying with her heterogeneous materials, Marina experiments with methods to bond these antithetic elements. Their links and connections become a space to explore the balance between relationships, safety, isolation and detachment. Do these links highlight connections or distances, void or absence? “Hermetic Dialogues” is the materialization of Marina Stanimirovic’s search to understand this space where the immutable meets the volatile.
