Maison Commun is a new initiative that is commissioning artists to make a piece of jewellery, using an everyday element, an object de mémoire, or a recurring object from their artistic practice as a starting point.
Maison Commun is currently presenting its first selection of artists’ jewellery in Brussels (at the Saint-Martin Bookshop, the building formerly known as the Maison Martin Margiela) and online on maisoncommun.com, including pieces designed by the likes of artists Martin Belou, Guillaume Bleret, Kasper Bosmans, Patrick Carpentier, Simona Denicolai, and Arnaud Eubelen.
The start of Maison Commun was influenced by Martin Margiela, who, in 2021, transformed an artist edition by Patrick Carpentier – a silver nail – into a piece of jewellery by the simple act of pinning it into the stitches of a jumper
Maison Commun will participate at the Artist Print X in Brussels (3 to 5 February) and at Collectible in Brussels (9 to 12 March)
