MUSEUM OF APPLIED ARTS & DESIGN VILNIUS

Forty-five international artists and designers, galleries, and institutions take part in SMCK ON REEL in Leipzig, Kyiv and Vilnius.

Reels, the art of the moving image, deploy the artist’s narrative and enable the public to indulge in the maker's work. Jewelry not only serves as a starting point for personal stories, but also as a cultural catalyst that can change social values.

Twelve Ukrainian artists tell the story of working and living in the war zone: of the spiritual experience of cameo engraving, the omnipresence of destruction and death, the consolidation of one's own identity, the determined resistance, or the ancient rituals to connect with nature.

SMCK ON REEL will be shown simultaneously at Grassimesse Leipzig, in the National Museum of History of the Ukraine in Kyiv, and at International Biennial for Contemporary Metal Art "Metalofonas" in the Museum of Applied Arts & Design in Vilnius, thus building an international CHAIN OF SOLIDARITY with our colleagues in Ukraine.

We thank Ms. Irina Udovychenko, Senior Researcher, Treasury of the National Museum of History of Ukraine, and Ms. Kateryna Muzika of VERSTAK Jewelry School & Crafting Space in Kyiv, Ms. Sabine Epple, Curator of Grassimesse Leipzig, and Ms. Jurgita Ludavičienė, Curator of "Metalofonas" Metal Art Biennial at National Museum of Applied Art & Design in Vilnius - and all participating artists of SMCK ON REEL.
