30 years / Wouters & Hendrix
'History is what the present is to tomorrow'. With that idea in mind, Wouters & Hendrix embedded thirty years of legacy within five uniquely designed time capsules. Each capsule contains statement artefacts that will stand the test of time. Without holding onto the past, and keeping its finger on the pulse of today´s zeitgeist, Wouters & Hendrix is looking forward to the future. At the backdrop of a digital revolution, every capsule was translated into a 3D short movie directed by the young visual artist Frederik Heyman. Just as every jewel in the universe of Wouters & Hendrix is created with thoughtfulness and care and is the result of a unique balance between traditional craftsmanship and the tendencies of today.
Fusing together the volatility video art with the longevity of jewelry art is another manifestation of their sense of postmodernism - just as the idea of preserving thirty years of Wouters & Hendrix in time capsules can be regarded as an act of futurism. While the likelihood of electronic and magnetic storage media being preserved into the distant future may be hotly debated, history has proved that jewels stand the test of time.
The installations and the video projection are to be discover in our two shops in Brussels till March 5.
