Lecture: The Battle for Beauty

Tuesday 14 July 2015, 6.30pm Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

Join us for an illustrated lecture by the renowned contemporary jeweller, Philip Sajet.

Born in Amsterdam in 1953 and trained as a goldsmith under Francesco Pavan in Italy, Sajet creates unconventional and striking jewellery in his studios in France and Germany. He delights in revealing imperfections of natural stones, their colour variations and the endless play of light. He says:

Beauty takes many forms… what fascinates me about beauty is the exciting closeness of beauty and ugliness; in creating new forms of beauty one must tap into the source of ugliness.

Sajet’s jewellery has mesmerised visitors in numerous exhibitions and can be found in permanent public and private collections from Europe to the USA and Japan. His ‘Cullinan 2’ necklace is on display our A Fine Possession: Jewellery and Identity exhibition.

Join a free, curator-led tour of A fine possession from 3.30-4.30pm as part of this event. If you would like to join this tour, please be sure to reserve your place.
