Felieke van der Leest i utstilling "9 March Project", Solyanka Gallery Moscow, Russia - 9. mars til 12. april 2020
9 March Project
is an attempt to kill two birds with one stone: "We want to bring contemporary jewelry to light by rising through it questions that are relevant for many: feminism and gender stereotypes. We want to show that contemporary jewelry is no less of an art form than painting or sculpture. We want to discuss women’s place in society and as a means of expression, we want to use something that was always, as women themselves, considered beautiful but insignificant - jewelry. We think that combining two controversial subjects can benefit both: people interested in questions of gender can through it learn more about contemporary jewelry and jewelry lovers will be able to reflect on the modern feminist agenda."
