'Suspend.ed in Pink' is successful Art Jewellery exhibition-come-installation that toured Europe and the USA in 2013. It was launched at Studio Gabi Green, Munich, Germany as a part of the annual jewellery festival 'Schmuck'.
Curated by Laura Bradshaw-Heap, ‘Suspend.ed in Pink’ seeks to explore the world of jewellery as it is NOW. With a focus on concept driven jewellery, also known as art or research jewellery, the exhibition is concentrated on wearable pieces that contain the colour pink.
Entries were received from all parts of the world – the A4 catalogue contains a wealth of statements, concepts and styles with 365 pieces submitted from over 156 jewellers. The theme of 'pink' opened up a riot of explorations into pink’s many connotations, cultural references and gender associations.
The finish and binding of the catalogue was influenced by some of the materials used in the pieces themselves.
