Matute Exhibition at The Other Space
From 4th till 20th November 2021
Mixing the ancient Inca Peruvian jewellery-making heritage and the contemporary jewellery knowledge, Matute developed a new language, involving the present with the past. Creating a series of Hair Combs inspired by the traditional Peruvian dance “Marinera” in collaboration with the Amautas Alejandro Rodriguez. Amautas (Qechua dialect). They have had the task of sharing and continuing the ancient knowledge of jewellery techniques since Inca times. The aristocracy of talent during the Inca empire. Teachers of the arts and sciences, mainly the jewellers and craftsmen of gold and silver. This project is part of the “Matute Foundation”, This organization creates a change in the art educational level of the teenagers living in San Jerónimo de Tunan, Junin Region in the Peruvian highlands. The main idea of this project is to generate the empowerment of the teenagers in San Jerónimo town located in the highlands of Junín Region in Perú. Make high school students aware that it is possible to help maintain the cultural background using art in collaboration with the silversmiths & goldsmiths of their region called Amautas, and that through art it is also possible to generate economic income that will benefit the level of their education.
In her artistic practice, Dora Brams works with patterns and structures, and their limits.
Almost all of her work can be viewed as a puzzle or as a mosaic of pieces that belong together. But they all originate from the incomprehension of existing systems and their absurdity.

‘Error in Ypsilon’ is mainly focused on the undefined explorations on personal attachments towards physical- and environmental distortions caused by certain setbacks. Approached in a reconstructed docu-fictional form to visualize the invisible side effects that have been caused.
