THIS IS THE ONE by Australian jeweller Zoe Brand. Zoe has strong connections to our local jewellery scene and has recently completed her Honours from Australian National University (ANU) School of Art Gold and Silversmithing Workshop in Canberra. Zoe uses jewellery archetypes, readymades and text to explore the performative nature of jewellery as a device for communication. She is concerned with finding language that can describe both the object or the idea of the object, as well as the person who might wear the piece. Zoe’s current body of work draws from readymade forms, more specifically from the plethora of signs and ephemera that are associated with commercial or retail situations and explores the way in which we negotiate commerce and transaction in these environments.
