The Housewives

The Housewives is a project that started sometime in 2002 and still goes on. It’s interactivity between German jewellerer Steffany Klemp and Slovak jewellerer Bety Majernikova. Authors are cooperating in creation of art/jewellery pieces, and present them on the ironical way, as pieces made at home in the free time. It is a commentary on still running categorization of art creation of “high art” and “low art”.

The Housewives je projekt ktorý vznikol niekde v roku 2002 a odvtedy kontinuálne pokračuje. Ide o spoluprácu dvoch výtvarníčiek, Steffany Klamp z Nemecka a Bety Majerníkovej zo Slovenska. Autorky spolupracujú na spoločných prácach, a ironicky ich prezentujú ako diela ktoré vznikajú „ v domácnosti“. Je to ich komentár na neustále kategorizovanie výtvarných disciplín na vyššie a nižšie.









Let’s shoot yourself...

Let’s shoot yourself with jewellery... is name of exhibition of Bety Majernikova, it was located in Slovak National Gallery in March 2007. The aim of the author was to present jewellery in new way, to catch the attention of audience, that doesn’t usually look for contemporary jewellery. The concept was simple: visitors could come and as soon as they put any of jewels on them they become the object of interest. People could choose, try and photograph themselves with a piece of their choice.

Let’s shoot yourself with jewellery je názov akcie Bety Majerníkovej, ktorá sa uskutočnila v Slovenskej národnej galérii. Išlo o pokus prezentovať šperky iným spôsobom, autorke išlo o to, aby bola prezentácia zaujímavá aj pre publikum ktoré bežne nevyhľadáva výstavy súčasného šperku. Vystavené šperky boli priamo prístupné publiku. Ľudia si mohli vyberať skúšať a fotiť sa zo šperkom podľa vlastného výberu.
