_ 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.
