_ EDGAR MOSA
CONTEMPORARY ART JEWELER
Art jeweler Edgar Mosa set the tone with an oversized shoe lace and pearls, and went on to explore time and space through chain making. It is a clock, a hand made and performative process _ ultimately invading the space and the different contributors’ works.
Edgar Mosa was born in Lisbon, Portugal where he was trained as a goldsmith at the age of 14. He earned his bachelor of design from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in the Netherlands followed by a Master of Fine Arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art in the US.
Mosa has a very hands-on studio practice, culminating in work that both flirts with costume jewelry and its lexicon. His studio in New York City has become a secret hideout for underground stars, designers and artists of all types.
Grounded in method and material, his work explores temporal symbolism, his environment and pure creative impulse.
Mosa has taken part in art fairs including, Art Basel, Sofa Chicago, Object Rotterdam and has exhibited in galleries both in Europe and the US. His work is broadly featured in art/design publications as well as periodical magazines. Edgar Mosa works and lives in New York.
Edgar Mosa shortly after participated to the Show Cult at the Stedelijk Museum in collaboration with Current Obsession with a live performance inspired by his work at 36 Hours.
_ PETER DO
Peter Do regards textile development as one of the few outlets for genuine innovation. His streamlined separates are crafted from slabs of neoprene, pleated micro-suede and other plastic textiles, all manipulated into each other through heat bonding and quilting. He took home the LVMH Prize in 2014 and been working at Celine under Creative Director Phoebe Philo as a designer for the Runway collections.
Peter Do participated to the “Extraordinary Process” exhibiton honoring Zaha Hadid in September 2016 at Maison Mai Non in London and later set up his own Fashion House.
_ SAMUEL FARRIER
Samuel Farrier conceived an abstract sculpture, ever-evolving in time and space and made of materials and objects he collected over the past few weeks. He had these materials delivered from different locations over the length of 36 hours. Farrier blends a strong interest in object and material with an exploration of global misappropriation and distate.
Samuel Farrier was raised in Wyoming in an aerospace manufacturing facility. Working in aircraft production, Farrier gained intimate awareness of industrial method and manipulation of materials. Craving external influence Farrier moved to New York and spent his early 20’s on extended contracts living and working in Europe and Asia immersed in the industry of global fashion. Embracing his dissonant past Farrier blends a strong interest in object and material with an exploration of global misappropriation and distaste. Farrier lives and works in New York.
