The co-curated exhibition (IM)PRINT presents works that address different interpretations of the acts of publishing and disseminating, but also of imprinting and impressing. Some of the works on display, investigate the similarity between jewellery and language or typography: how the former allows for potentially infinite configurations, functioning in this way similarly to an alphabet, whose ideal surface and interface for communication is the body and the surrounding space. Other positions bypass for a moment the physicality of jewellery and objects, and rather look at the role and practice of the artist as publisher, editor or producer. Then there is the perspective that takes into account the data and information that are impressed onto the surface of things, and the constant, reciprocal exchange of information (and re-marks) between subjects and objects: how trusted things and belongings that we live with, leave a mark on us just as much as we leave it upon them through our daily contact and manipulation.
