Pieces of Eight is proud to launch an exclusive collection of precious jewellery pieces by highly regarded Melbourne based artist Anna Varendorff. Anna's 'digital systems' exhibition brings together a collection of single and interlocking objects of jewellery. Within the series of rings, neckpieces and earrings, there is an opportunity for the wearer to compose the objects as they choose. In the spirit of play and personal expression, Anna has designed the pieces to allow for free interaction and curation by the wearer. She essentially facilitates your collaboration with the work, allowing you the freedom to combine it's narrative with your own.
Anna Varendorff makes simple jewellery forms: minimal, genderless, not ritual specific, but ritualistic. These are the objects of joy and inquiry, of time and attachment. This is her first solo exhibition at Pieces of Eight Gallery.
