Jewelry is a medium that is directly connected to the human body and can communicate with it. However, this aspect mostly disappears during gallery display and the jewelry becomes only an aesthetic object. The exhibition restores interaction directly to the viewer's body. The mirror surfaces on which the jewelry is installed allow the viewer to see their reflection along with the jewelry on display. This creates a dialogue between the jewelry and the observer. At the exhibition, it is possible to see the work of contemporary authors from the studio S+M+L_XL – METAL AND JEWELERY, Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava and Jewelery and Metal MA studio, Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest. The exhibition is called DIALOGUE because the conversation takes place not only between the viewer and the jewelry, but also between the two exhibiting studios.
