Zaha Hadid Gallery is pleased to present a group show featuring designers and artists whose jewellery and fashion designs were selected across a range of materials and means of expression. By bringing together the individual works of each designer within a joint context, the show seeks to promote a dialogue exploring the possible relationships between geometries – simple and complex, singular and repetitive – with the human body and the array of resulting emotive possibilities. Ranging from works of art or structures intending to be worn, to varying concepts towards the design process, all of the works exhibited challenge a figurative and narrative approach in jewellery and fashion creation, simultaneously summoning material qualities and provocations of scale as new forms of abstract expression.

Diffracta navigates the spasmatic process of production and circulation of images in the age of the total technological mediation.
Images proliferate everywhere: machines taking pictures, machines generating images, surveillance cameras, web cameras, tv screens, smart screens, touch screens, digital images entering reality and reality being shaped by the digital, virtual reality and actual reality becoming indistinguishable. Overwhelming streams of images constantly flow before our eyes, hyperstimulating our vision with a plethora of signals. The circulation of images has escaped the control of humans. For millennia humans have constituted their communities according to the image they constructed of the cosmos and of themselves. Civilisations were founded on coherent processes of representation of reality, and grounded on ordered systems of symbols and images. This is now no longer possible. Reality is distorted and diffracted through multiple lenses. Processes of representation have been automated and have become hypertrophic, thus bursting into a chaotic storm of images that scatters fragmented replicas of reality.
A new aesthetic paradigm is thus needed. A paradigm which, rather than being constructed as a coherent symbolic order, emerges as a complex constellation of heterogeneous elements.
