Crossover Exhibition at
Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h
Discover the exceptional collections of jewelry and objects of young emerging American artists
October 6, 2021
Presented from October 7 to November 13, 2021 at Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h, the new Crossover exhibition invites you to discover the collections of jewelry and objects of young American artists. Recently graduated from various American universities, they stand out for their artistic intentions, the aesthetics and the conception of their works.
From San Diego, CA, Jessica Andersen stages the abandoned objects of everyday life and invites the viewer to discover new ways of interacting with each object, beyond existing cultural signifiers, in order to propose new meanings, functions, and symbolic values.
Aaron Decker uses enamel freely in order to render a rather irreverent iconography. His latest collection, inspired by mechanical toys and children’s drawings, is the result of both a collection of furtive memories and the artist’s mixed fascination and fear of clowns.
Through the use of a dark-humoured approach, Stefan Gougherty explores the many facets of the digital age in which we live: the distortion of time and space, information overload, and the increasingly blurred line between reality and fiction.
Basing her work on the notion of identity, Jasterzbski explores her own roots, being from a working-class environment. Not only does she examine the notion of class, but also the roles associated with gender identity, employing and questioning the ways in which certain processes or materials are traditionally associated with men or women.
Steven KP‘s brooches, with the appearance of soft knots unfolding on the torso, reflect the character of the piece of wood from which they are derived: a mass within which knots, scars, and sinuous shapes are already present, even before they are addressed by the artist. The knots thus revealed by KP’s hands are light and rigid, contrary to what their dark and fluid appearance would suggest.
Going so far as to register her own name as a trademark, Hannah Oatman™, she offers a reflection on consumer society and the behaviors of the collector. With a critical eye, she exacerbates the commercial aspect of art by reappropriating the marketing techniques specific to mass consumer products

Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h encourages visitors to take a fresh look jewels. Much more than a simple decorative object, the creation of a piece of jewelry is the result of a research that focuses on both form and content. Like any authentic work of art, a jewel can therefore move us, seduce us, make us think or disturb us.Bold and committed, the works of our creators bear witness to the diversity of languages and ideas that characterize today’s production. firstname.lastname@example.org
