Jewellery & Metal Event Panel Discussion: The Body Alive
Panel discussion on jewellery and object concepts inspired by the living body.
This panel brings together a group of practitioners for whom the living body is a focus for the expression of a broad range of interests, including the study of the body in space, the body as canvas and the body in relation to modern rituals. The panel will initiate discussion around ways in which these artists and others past and present represent body related concepts through jewellery and object.
