25 January – 17 March
Ruudt Peters (born 1950) of the Netherlands is a trailblazer of contemporary jewellery design. In his jewellery, which has been described as rebellious, he has tested the boundaries of design in this area in both materials and use. BRON is a retrospective exhibition with multimedia presenting an overview of Peters’ career of 44 years and the conceptual jewellery collections that he has created during it. The title of the exhibition refers to a source, to origins. The exhibition illustrates Peters’ sources of inspiration in design: cultures, religions, traditions, gender, corporeality and alchemy.
