GianCarlo Montebello

A series of ‘superlight’ necklaces, bracelets and ear-rings that suggest a return to a decidedly ‘classical’ repertory of body ornaments.
There’s nothing at all bizarre about these forms: the links of the chains come one right after the other, each identical to the one before it; and with the bracelets, your wrist seems simply to be wearing some sort of draughtsman’s tool.

These recent works are most conspicuously characterized by their weight, or by their almost total lack of weight: they’re charged with vibrations that come alive in a filigree engraved in the gossamer thinness of a sheet of stainless steel.
(From a conversation with Elisabetta Longari – May, 2001)
