Peter Deckers (Nl/NZ)
a mentor of the contemporary jewellery

" Since my emigration from the Netherlands in 1985 I live and work in New Zealand. From 1989 onwards I have been the jewellery coordinator and senior tutor at Whitireia NZ, Wellington. My teaching is a combination of concept, material and technical developments. Next to teaching (and my own artistic practice) I have been proactive for the NZ jewellery sector. Emigration is all about being a good pioneer and a good pioneer searches for opportunities. The latest project I pioneered for the sector is a mentor/exhibition programme called HANDSHAKE that literally reverses the old apprentice system. The process of making and feedback is shared via an active blog (handshakeproject.com).  Recently we started up another HANDSHAKE project for selected NZ artists who teamed up with their hero artists as mentors and receive additional training by masterclasses and professional development.

My own work deals with materials and concepts of perception and how that is measured. There are reoccurring strands going through my practice that relates to how ‘value’ is perceived, mediated and utilised. It carries recurring ‘value’ themes; build from cultural and political pitfalls, like ‘Killing for Pleasure” to the readings of perceptive representations of icons and the semiotics of materials. Iconic paintings, famous people and historical interpretations are public property and its invested energy is ready to be probed or unplugged. Value appreciation is built from cultural adaptations to social interpretations concluded into historical self-styled readings.

E.g. kitsch jewellery, or costume jewellery, is hardly part of the contemporary jewellery movement. Is this because of the status relation to value, its faux connection, or our temporal taste? Humans in general appreciate the light reflection and dispersion of rainbows. Reflections from glass prism, diamonds and other stones are intriguing in a similar way.
The distinction how light travels through diamond material and its faux replacement is close, but not in its value or appreciation. My intent in the ‘Second Chance’ series is finding ways in increase value of faux materials. I have been covering-up/´sophisticating´ kitsch jewellery since 1991, which started when I examined the semiotics between narratives and materials. 

During my working live as a studio jeweller (that is since 1979) I made several installation settings to contextualise the ideas around ‘value’ and  its reading. The jewellery acts as a story telling device – stories that triggers the memory, and builds upon a (further) semiotic value and judgement".
