Bijoux - Jewellery

Andrée Weschler's practice encompasses different media such as performance, video and installation. However she enjoys playing with clay after a long day. Though these pieces are worn as jewellery, they should be seen as sculptures as each piece is one of it's kind and signed by the artist.

 

Prayer for Unfaithful Women, 2005

There are many stories about unfaithful women. For instance in my hometown in France, during Middle Age, unfaithful women were put into cage and submerged into the river. If the woman was still alive after 10 minutes it meant that she was faithful.

The Prayer For Unfaithful Women is a Performance Art about women who consorted with German soldiers during World War II. They were humiliated and had their head shaved in public on the main square. This Art Performance is a visual denunciation of the rage under the guise of an angelic prayer. It is about French Memory, we carry with us from our History

Amputation, 2006

Amputation is an installation of medical tools hypothesizing failure as the naissance of healing: one needs to be sick before one can heal. The installation’s tools belonged to Andrée’s family doctor who was simultaneously caregiver and spectator to her and her family’s lives. This work is done in his memory
