Blank by Marc Monzó
Blank is a collection of objects open to interpretation, entities straddling two states. They generate dialogue between a noble material, gold, and a bare appearance, with no finish: pieces made from  industrially produced gold sheets bent into shape, assembled and welded. The objects strike a fragile balance, but are clear and sincere at the same time. They are almost prototypes, produced through the minimum amount of operations. They have been made by hand, with virtually no tools, as if without technique or craftsmanship, with no desire to control. They display their limitations, the difficulties involved in their manufacture, their adjustments and corrections.

Their shape does not lie or conceal; it reflects a procedure, a way of working. They are the record of the operations to which they have been subjected, the memory of what has happened to them. They look as if they have been made quickly, as if absent-mindedly, in an embryonic form; yet in fact they embody a life of patience, learning and dedication.
/ David Steegman

I collect real objects and images, seized from my daily surroundings. In fact, my studio is an endlessly growing collection of bits and pieces, both visible and invisible that becomes parts of a map I keep updating and revising. My work is a treasure hunt among things and ideas finally fashioning into pieces of jewellery made to be desired, worn, questioned, or loved. / Marc Monzó
