V68, Patricia Reznak’s first enamel collection
“We do not give up imagining a different world, a different society, another way of managing the planet, another way of interacting with others: a future full of colour. This all happened on the street one spring. This sunbeam still glows.” — Laurent Joffrin
In Grassy we commemorate May 68 50th anniversary with a jewellery collection: V68. The starting point being three photographs of the Paris student movements. Each picture portrays one or more silhouettes, coloured with pastel shades, a detail is chosen from it.
This graphic material is enamelled onto copper plate, in three sizes. The enamelled copper plates are mounted on a lentil shaped mount made of satin sheen grey gold with a neutral appearance.The result is a collection of rings, pendants, earrings, cufflinks and tie pins; the mood is festive, nearly childish, bright colours, pop aesthetics, as cheerful as the sunbeam mentioned by Laurent Joffin, and which Patricia remembers from childhood. Adventure and defiance which she has transferred to the jewelry with the innocence and colours of Tintin’s vignettes.
