The Beauty & The Best
Klimt02 | Gallery presents in Barcelona a selection of 140 pieces of 26 international artists. Our selection of works, presented through this 2010 collection, aims to involve you in the implicit concepts, messages, thoughts, ironies, questions, answers, transgressions and languages that have taken shape and have become physical beings.


“Ideas can be works of art; they are in a chain of development that may eventually find some form. All ideas need not be made physical. The words of one artist to another may induce a chain of ideas, if they share the same concept.” Sol Lewitt

Our work as gallery owners is to continue the process of sharing these ideas.

Our selection of works, presented through this 2010 collection, aims to involve you in the implicit concepts, messages, thoughts, ironies, questions, answers, transgressions and languages that have taken shape and have become physical beings.

Klimt02 presents a selection of essential and benchmark jewels in contemporary jewellery. We wish to give you the chance as receivers to feel the emotion involved in appreciating a work of art, thus completing the artistic act.

These jewels incorporate different levels of language: tradition, innovation, history, present, words, sounds, notes, gaps, orbits and connections… as an exquisite way of discovering and understanding reality. These jewels deserve our attention: something is happening.

We are not striving for any kind of originality, trend or discovery but rather we simply wish to state that every single piece in the collection involves a high degree of creation with which we wish to address you as receivers of the message. We offer receivers and request of them the possibility of exercising choice, their selective affinity.

These pieces tell us how we understand things today. This is their contemporary nature. The creator, the artist or the jeweller is a catalyser of our reality.

Beauty is something more than ornamental; in this case it is the coming together of what is good, well made and essential. The Best, for us and now for you as well, is the selection of jewels on the basis of which to start to think and feel the best.

These are the selected 140 jewels of 26 international artists... Jewells in every sense of the word.
