Jane Schmitt knew her grandfather, the sculptor Sandu Babeanu whom had disappeared well before her birth, through these little things which shape a character in a child’s imagination.
The tutelary silhouette of a black metal dragon in the garden of the family house in Port Lligat, Cadaques. The photo of a young dandy in a white suit, between Salvador Dali and Man Ray, hidden behind his big glasses
A cigar box containing sculpture falls, tungsten alloy frozen in random shapes when they crushed on the ground. From this family reliquary, Jane Schmitt has extracted some pieces and created some jewels as a tribute to this stranger whom she nevertheless feels so close to.
For her second collection at IBU Gallery, Jane presents unique pieces based on “family jewels” which she has transformed as well as double rings linked by a chain, necklaces and earrings in silver or vermeil or even sometimes enhances with precious stones.
Family Affair with Sandu Babeanu, Eric Schmitt, Jane Schmitt, Hugo Schmitt, from December 12th, 2019 until February 1st, 2020
