Skeletons Of Dreams Exhibition


Internationally recognised jeweller Carine Terreblanche’s latest exhibit Skeletons of Dreams will showcase a selection of her enamel-painted wood-and-metal jewellery. The exhibition reflects the tenuous gap between jewellery, sculpture, fine arts, and crafts, leaving it up to the viewer to categorise the work. ‘Skeletons of Dreams’ metaphorically refers to the creative process as a dream world, which has to be cruelly abandoned once the product, the metaphorical skeleton, is complete. Carine feels that the end product only serves to remind her of the dream-like creative process. Carine has participated in a number of major international exhibitions, twice being a finalist at the German Schmuck exhibition and having most recently been invited to participate in the exhibition Plata Radical (Radical Silver) in Santiago. Since 1994 she has also been involved with the University of Stellenbosch, first as a lecturer and later returning as head of the jewellery design division in the visual arts department. The exhibition opens on 12 November at 6:30pm and runs until 18 November 2013 at the Slee Gallery, 101 Dorp Street, Stellenbosch. For more information, email gallery@slee.co.za or visit slee.co.za.
