In her ‘urban jewellery’ series, visual artist Liesbet Bussche takes a playful approach to the size and material of archetypical items of jewellery such as earrings, pearl necklaces and charm bracelets. She once blew up an ear stud to the size of an outdoor sculpture and adorned the quays in a French harbour town with outsized anchor charms on chains. In the outdoor spaces at Fort Ruigenhoek, Tweetakt is presenting her robust enlarged diamond whose facets consist of wooden window frames with glass panes inside.
Liesbet Bussche is from Belgium. She studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and at St. Lucas in Antwerp. Her work has been shown all over the world, from the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in Paris to The Jewelry Library in New York.
