Surabhi Sahgal

India

 

I am a jewellery-maker transitioning from architectural practice towards narrative objects and speculative adornment. I see my current practice as an exploratory journey into the development of jewellery and objects as stimuli for socio-cultural expression, inquiry and intrigue. I employ different working methods and materials in the creation of my work; however, I am primarily engaged with copper electroforming and patination. My electroformed copper pieces emphasize the myriad forms, textures and colours assumed by copper in its growth and decay. By superimposing the speculative nature of copper growth with conformist architectural forms and identifiable everyday objects, I make jewellery to challenge my own, as well as the viewer/wearer’s aesthetic sensibilities and values.
Having questioned the premise of jewellery as an art form over the last two years, both in academic and professional settings, I am keen on establishing a new position for contemporary jewellery practice in India - extending the discipline beyond the realms of adornment and perceived preciousness. Responding to issues of the environment, as well as socio-cultural paradoxes, I wish to confront humanity with my imagined realities and extrapolated unrealities using jewellery as a visual and tactile medium.
