“The Sunday Brooch Project”, started in 2014, is an ongoing project involving the cataloguing of found contemporary jewelry, aka. brooch-like moments, appearing in various new contexts. These interpretations of the entity "body" go as far as façades and trees. “Sunday Brooches” are, usually accidental, collaborations between Man and Nature, Urban Masses and willful Individuals. They are un-finished stories waiting to be told; they embody the attitude of 21st century life- in all it’s beautiful hypocrisy. The candy wrapper mischievous shoved in a light socket- one mark of millions, a sign of life in a moment of still.
Corrina Goutos curates the jewels in the original context, in the form of a photograph on instagram, and researches them in her pursuit of discovering answers to some of the questions most vital to her process as a maker. How and why do humans apply value to objects and things? What will stand to represent our generations indifferent indulgence? How does the small field of Contemporary Jewelry fit into this estranged consumer world- where does the anti-jewelry industry jewelry belong? Who do we makers speak on behalf of and who is listening? Discover new contexts for Contemporary jewelry and peer into Goutos' data base of texture, combination and form as you follow one maker in her never-ending search for a genuine moment.
