Collective exhibition OSSIMORI
Novitas Jewellery by Mariagiulia Trento - Living Death
In a natural state, death is not the negation of life, but its consequence. What is alive by definition must someday die, transform and feed the surrounding life.
Mankind, who has separated itself from nature, has always feared death, both as individuals that as a species, seeing
it as an ultimate end.
But in a grater sense even our extinction would not mean the end of life. Life would go on nevertheless, changing and evolving, as it has been during the five mass extinction events that our planet has already lived through or in places left abandoned that get reclaimed by nature, repopulated by animals and plants.
An oxymoron is the deliberate juxtaposing of contradictory words. From Greek oksýs, meaning “sharp” and mōrós, meaning “foolish”
For this project the authors Rita Martinez, Valeria Rossini, Giorgia Tasca, Mariagiulia Trento develop their own jewelry collections by interpreting an oxymoron, a source of inspiration.
