MEDUSA Exhibition - Jewelry and taboos

The Maison presents a selection of pieces on the occasion of the MEDUSA exhibition at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. 

 

Just like the face of Medusa in Greek mythology, a piece of jewelry attracts and troubles the person who designs it, looks at it or wears it. While it is one of the most ancient and universal forms of human expression, jewelry has an ambiguous status, mid-way between fashion and sculpture, and is rarely considered to be a work of art. The exhibition offers a contemporary and unprecedented look at the jewelry, revealing certain taboos.
