Jewellery for an inner world
Weimin Zhu is an artist & jewellery designer based in the Netherlands. Her collection 'Playful jewellery for the inner world' is currently on display at Mediamatic.
The collection of silver jewellery pieces is designed to invite meditative movement from the wearer, to get in touch with their inner world, be mindful of their body, and help to process stimuli. She continues to explore how jewellery can help to achieve a balance between the body and the mind. Wei Min graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2022, and is now pursuing a Masters degree at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
Ludmila Rodrigues is an artist, designer and lecturer based in the Hague. Working at the intersection of sensory and social experience, Ludmila finds strategies to provoke playful situations in collaboration with the audience.
She investigates how the lower senses can be vehicle for learning and expression, exploring where the physical and inner worlds meet. During her talk, she will share her experiences from her work centring the intimate senses. Ludmila holds a degree in Architecture and Urban Planning by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and in ArtScience by the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, where she now works as a lecturer.
Jenny Konrad is a recent graduate of the Rietveld Academy. In their graduation work they explore what it means to fit into a capitalist straitjacket. They will talk about the different dimensions of this project - from the tangible materials used to the emotional burden of the expectation of office life.
Konrad's artistic process weaves together "material mindmapping", pattern tracing, personal reflections and theoretical to investigative research, focused on expanding the potential of tactile and digital media for alternative ways of storytelling.
