REBECCA ELBEK X REFLECTIONS In the summer of 2020, Rebecca for the second time participated with Reflections Copenhagen in Enter Art Fair. They together created 3 pieces with a perfect union of gold jewellery and crystal shrines. “Separately we are exceptional, together we are evolutionary”. The thought of creating a one of a kind sculpture that could combine an installation and a sacred box to store your favorite piece of jewellery, was the initial inspiration that brought Reflection Copenhagen and Rebecca Elbek together. To make an installation where the piece of jewellery, can be enjoyed visually when not being worn. What are we could create illusions, reflections and take the piece into a new form says Rebecca Elbek. Mirror Exhibit: The mirror Exhibit is reflecting surfaces of the mirror and casting back the view of the jewellery. Creates a three-dimensional universe and challenges the experience of space. The Summer garden earrings are made in 18. hammered gold, bejeweled with small gold butterflies filled with 1.085ct. diamonds. The butterfly flying underneath the leave has diamonds on both sides which are being reflected from every side when looking into the mirrors (link til summer garden earrings). Optical Exhibit: The optical illusion creates a perception of the size which in combination with the involuntary movements of our eyes resonate sensation and gives the jewellery new “rays”. The 18ct. gold Summer garden ring is covered in 0.67ct. diamonds. When looking through the magnifying glass you can see all details in the fauna, and view the summer garden and the beauty of the colorful butterflies even closer. Illusion Exhibit: Illuminated by transparent exhibit it admits the passage of light through interstices. The crystal colors reflect light on the jewellery. The 18ct. gold Scarab earrings are bejeweled with green emeralds set around the golden scarab and the small turtle is also surrounded by green diamonds symbolizing the vegetation that is this animal’s natural habitat. The transparency allows us to take a closer look at a normally overseen creature.
