Ted Noten: 7 Necessities

Ornamentum Gallery contemporary jewelry exhibit during Design Miami/ Basel 2011 June 15-19, 2011. In this exhibition, Netherlands artist Ted Noten will show pieces from his 7 Necessities for a Woman (to feel like a woman through the eyes of a man).

“Uzi Mon Amour” suitcase edition 2/55 Kg bar of silver. Engraved with flowers and 24K gold plated, cast in acrylic. A sensuous Chinese love poem is engraved around the silencer.

3D-printed gun in nylon, combined with elements of gold with all the accessories needed by the contemporary woman (at least “through the eyes of a man”) — cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, perfume and a bar of gold or silver etc. are hidden within this universally recognizable albeit controversial symbol of power.
