Overview

Kim Buck is partial to using well-known jewelry motifs such as
hearts, daisies, signet rings, and crosses as a point of departure,
but the materials can be anything from precious metals to found
objects and ready-mades. With surprising combinations, wordplay,
and a touch of irony, he questions the conventions of the
jewelry business as well as the way national and religious symbols
are used and abused. Even Denmark’s national jewelry piece, the
daisy brooch, is up for scrutiny.
To a conceptual artist, raising questions and prompting reflection
is of utmost importance. The questions raised by Kim Buck
through his jewelry and objects touch upon values, ethics, and
social status and reach far beyond the jewelry field itself, disrupting
our cultural habits and understanding of the self.
