Description

How Many Is One encapsulates one of the fundamental questions at the core of art and design. This issue is highly pertinent to jewelry design as a language that seeks form through which to articulate ideas. The oeuvre of Deganit Stern Schocken (b. 1947) has delved into the socio-political question of place, creating works in which text is incorporated as an integral part of the object; in the process the artist has adhered to the classical language of jewelry while employing state-of-the-art technologies. The book explores the architectural-planning aspect in Stern Schocken’s jewelry. While each object stands in its own right (like a building), it is also part of a system (the city). The trial-and-error process of casting and the notion of “value” also play an important role in the artist’s work, which alludes to local society and Israeli reality.

Under these unusual circumstances, with exhibitions, galleries and our favourite book shops closed – and whilst we are all recommended to maintain social distancing – we think our beautiful art publications could be the perfect way to get through this uncertain period.
