Award winning jewellery artist Zoe Robertson designs and makes wearable sculpture for performance. She is a practice based researcher at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University and is currently exploring Jewellery within a performative context where the relationship between the animated object, the body and space is investigated. The resulting jewellery is theatrical in scale and responds to kinaesthetic sensations in which the tactility, sensuality and physicality of the objects is important.
The interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of her works moves beyond Jewellery and into the fields of performance, sound, and dance. This open-minded approach to challenging the boundaries of jewellery coupled with an intuitive relationship with materials is the driving force and motivation behind her work. Design ideas arise by experimenting with a breadth of unconventional materials often industrial in nature and the combination of these processes continually serve to initiate a visual language which is capitalised upon to create her work.
Her studio ‘The Dual Works Ltd’ is based in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, United Kingdom. Her work is exhibited within an international arena and images are published extensively, to see more visit the exhibitions and publications pages of her website.
