Four artists and nine pieces of jewellery celebrating and investigating one of the most enigmatic and fascinating works in the history of Western Arts: the “Melencolia I” engraving by Albrecht Dürer.

Conceived as a second step of an ideal cycle that links past and present and which started with “The Alchemical Egg” in 2017, “Melencolia or The Saturnine nature of the Artist” is a project related to the German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) and specifically to his engraving “Melencolia I” (1514). Thus, the four Artist -jewellers involved in this project have been invited to create their own works inspired by the theme of “Melencolia I” as a meditation about this vague, indefinite, unclear and yet insuppressible feeling, and about the role and the nature of the artist himself.

The exhibition project is curated by Nichka Marobin, in collaboration with Hannah Gallery by Klimt02.
