The contemporary jewellery designer, Suzanne Syz is renowned for her highly original and unconventional designs which draw on many sources for inspiration. Born in Zurich and educated in Paris, she moved to New York City in the 1980s and became part of the circle of Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Francesco Clemente and Jeff Koons. The nearness of these revolutionary creative spirits and their work not only greatly impacted her contemporary art collection; it also proved to be a formidable catalyst for her jewellery creations. Radiant colours, audacious compositions and unusual materials have become trademarks of Suzanne Syz’s work. Suzanne Syz now lives and works in Geneva where her showroom is an extension of her creative existence. Three factors reign supreme: violet (her signature colour); the 1950s-1960s décor and a selection of her art collection which includes a marsh- mellow Nelson sofa; a Warhol stitched photograph of Liza Minelli; Guy Bourdin photographs from the 1960s and 1970s and a Sylvie Fleury cover of Kate Moss. It also emanates a subtle sense of genuine luxury, a rarity in our times. However, Syz jewellery merits the epithet without a hint of doubt. The extreme attention to detail and the remarkable calibre of craftsmanship that goes into realizing her creations, provide a level of quality and excellence which has become exception rather than rule. Another factor which sets apart Syz jewellery is her use of material, which ranges from the application of ‘traditional’ gems such as sapphires, diamonds, emeralds, fine stones including spinels, tourmaline paraïba and tsavorites, often used in combination with titanium, gold and enamel. It is clear that the material expertise, technical knowledge and artistry of her Geneva-based team of craftsmen are indispensible for turning Syz’s unconventional and often highly complex designs into glamorous and one-of-a-kind jewellery creations which have charmed clients such as Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis and the Archduchess Francesca von Habsburg-Thyssen.
Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic has pioneered performance art, creating some of the form's most important early works. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring her physical and mental limits, she has withstood pain, exhaustion, and danger in her quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. Abramovic was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale. In 2008, she was decorated with the Austrian Commander Cross for her contribution to art history. In 2010, Abramovic had her first major U.S. retrospective and simultaneously performed for over 700 hours in “The Artist is Present” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2014, she completed the three-month performance “512 Hours” at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Abramovic founded Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI), a traveling institute for immaterial and durational work to create new possibilities for collaboration among thinkers of all fields. MAI is the home to the Abramovic Method, a series of public participatory exercises that invite the public to be in the present moment and to connect with oneself and with each other. The institute inhabited its most complete form to date in 2016 in collaboration with NEON in “As One”, Benaki Museum, Athens. Her most recent publication is Walk Through Walls: A Memoir, Published by Crown Archetype in October 2016. Her retrospective, The Cleaner opened at Moderna Museet, Stockholm in February 2017 and will tour to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Oslo, Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn, and Palazzo Strozzi in Florence.
