overhandigd aan Marc Monzó, winnaar van de Françoise van den Bosch Prijs 2016
editie van twee
“The trophy brooch for the Françoise van den Bosch Award winner Marc Monzó was developed from the jewellery series „same, same but different“ and is inspired by Ancient African and Oceanic masks.
Since a mask can be an encouraging and protective item it is something that is worn with great pride. But this mindset can also be transferred through the act of gifting. Therefore, in the production process, two masks were translated into abstract sketches and reduced to their outlines. Finally, they were merged together and transformed into a three-dimensional object made from spring bronze”.
