PIN Anonimum
PIN - Associação Portuguesa de Joalharia Contemporânea

Projecto/ Exhibition/ Venda

The project is composed of 3 parts: the launch of an international challenge to make a pin under the theme “Useless”; an anonymous exhibition; sale as a form of fund raising for PIN. This is a work/ expo in process starting with the presentation of a collection of pins created by authors from multiple disciplines. Audience members are invited to make their own pin, which will later also become part of the exhibition. The pins are donated to PIN’s collection and sold for a symbolic price. Only after the sale is the pin’s author revealed. Thus, PIN’s intention is to question the value of the object as a creative plastic work per se, independent of values such as authorship and material worth. PIN hopes to contribute to”the re-evaluation of concepts - and prejudices - connected with usefulness”, questioning the “uselessness” inherent to the presence and absence of a jewel, either on the body or in society.
