Challenging the polished aesthetics of traditional wearable adornments, Copenhagen-based native New Yorker Victoria Mingot, sculpts raw forms that speak through the beauty of imperfection in hopes of blurring the lines between fraglity, fluidity and solidity.
Having studied the technical and traditional methods of goldsmithing in New York and more experimental and artistic processses in Copenhagen's Institute for Aedelmetal, Victoria uses her educational background , as well as personal inspirations and travels in her creative practice. Working as a jewelry artist for 9 years, Victoria keeps the process of jewelry making purely intuitive, creating a universe that is both intimate and bespoke for the wearer.
Elusivity is a recurring theme in jewelry and aethetics of movement, erosion, and body abstractions birth new forms made from silver, gold, raw rubies and sapphires. These ornaments often simulate archaeological artefacts recovered from the earth expressing a feeling of nostalgia, impermanence and a longing to harmonize with nature's landscapes.
