Becoming captivated with the macabre in ancient Egyptian mummification, a ritual in which Jewellery posed in the swaddled body and had an important function as a portal to a new reality in death, Hugo Madureira will show a series of jewels and Jewellery objects produced from his studio with industrial and manual labors. Oxidization, tarnishing and elaborate coatings and cuts will depict on metals and synthetics this devotion for occurring talismans and artifacts meant for safe journeys.
Hugo Madureira was born in Porto in 1982, currently lives in London and works in Jewellery design and art from his studio in Hoxton.
Alongside his artistic creations in the last decade working in the borderline of Art and Jewellery, he also produces bespoke work and collaborates with others as a consultant and designer.
Private View with talk by the designer on Thursday 5th of September.
