” Parlez-leur d’ambre, de métal, et de vie”


From 29 June to 12 December 2024

As part of the Lithuanian Season in France, 12 Lithuanian artists will be showcased in the windows of the Musée du Bijou contemporain.

Discover works created between 1990 and the present day, from the collections of the Lithuanian National Art Museum and the artists themselves.

The exhibition, whose title is inspired by Matthias Enard's novel "Parle-leur de batailles, de rois et d'éléphants" (Tell them about battles, kings and elephants), which tells the story of Michelangelo's construction of a bridge in Constantinople, aims to build an artistic bridge between Lithuania and France, by revealing the art of contemporary Lithuanian jewellery and its trends since independence.

The jewellery, made mainly of metal and amber, tells stories of Lithuanian life and shows how artists interact with social, political and cultural developments. Their creations offer a reflection on Lithuanian society through the prism of jewellery.
