Formerly named Beyond Fashion, galerie beyond is a gallery specializing in contemporary art jewelry and objects. It represents a selection of Belgian and international artists who are committed to developing art jewelry that is one-of-a-kind and that communicates the artist’s inspiration or concept. Exhibitions are organized on a regular basis, in cooperation with promising or established talent, and an inspiring collection of art jewelry and objects is permanently available.
galerie beyond invites you to question the limits of the area traditionally occupied by jewelry. Many of the selected works by national and international jewelry artists in the gallery’s permanent collection somewhat transgress the functions and uses normally given to jewels, going beyond the existing framework of the body and sometimes expanding into the owner’s habitat.
If, due to their scale, some of the jewelry and objects lose their wearable nature, nonetheless their very fabric is still intimately related to the body, due to the process of creation or to their workmanship. Crossing the borders of their fields, the artists of the works in the permanent collection offer themselves a new space for reflection, favorable to the blossoming of it, and to your own blooming.
