I was there at "I AM HERE"

'The Perspex Multiples' 1976/2011. A collaboration between Susanna Heron and Tatty Devine to re-issue the 'Perspex Multiples' bracelets originally designed by Heron in the 1980s.

This is a free exhibition at The Hospital Club on Endell Street on Covent Garden. It ends on 28th August. The Hospital Club is a very stylish private members Club, so I couldn't have a coffee and cake afterwards at the venue but I'm not bitter... I'm not sure how much it is to become a member, but I would love to do a laser cut Jewellery Workshop there... maybe someone will read this and send me an email...

The exhibition is all about jewellery that was made between the late 1970s to the mid-1980s. Designers started using non-precious materials such as acrylic, wood and found objects in order to create jewellery that made a creative statement rather than simply a decorative one. The term 'Wearable Objects' was used.

So... why is the exhibition called 'I AM HERE' ? Anthropologist Ted Polhemus said "Lost in an increasingly undifferentiated, homogenised global universe we urgently need visual adjectives which proclaim "I am here". So there you go. Makes sense.

Here are a few of my favourite photos from the exhibition, hope you enjoy...
