Vernissage de Violeta Adomaityte & Philip Sajet

Introducing Philip Sajet in a country like France is quite a challenge. France, which considers jewellery as a Decorative Art, when this jewellery designer claims that jewellery, like art, is the need for something which is not a necessity!
Thinking and making a piece of jewellery is as vital as breathing for Philip Sajet.
An adept of co-exhibiting, whether out of humility or for the pleasure of dialogue, Sajet invites us to discover, alongside his works, the jewellery of Violeta Adomaityte, a young Lithuanian artist.
Immersed in Art since childhood, Violeta graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania. There, the study of engraving techniques, involving work on stone and metal ultimately led her to jewellery. For her, jewellery is the ideal medium to bear witness to important moments in history or in the lives of people.
Her precise, meticulous work reveals her attraction for matter.
She handles a silver plate like drawing paper, appreciates enamel, tries out everything with curiosity ...
Born and raised in Amsterdam, Sajet attended the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and then was selected to do an internship in Padua with master goldsmith Francesco Pavan.
Most of his jewellery are a reflection on the history of ornamentation, reinterpreted in a contemporary, personal way. Sajet often uses irony, exaggerating the size of the stones, amplifying the rings, offering finally an aesthetic wonder sustained by technical perfection.
