Exhibition series "Exhibit of the Month"

Event duration:
from 02 to 30 September 2019

The series of one-showpiece exhibitions is an other way to present the extensive collection of the Kaliningrad Regional Amber Museum, which includes around 16 000 depositary items. This way of demonstrating an art piece allows specialists, its author and guests to look at it out of the context of a themed exhibition.

Paulina Binek. Poland
Torc "The Sun". 2014
Silver, amber, gilding

Base of the pendant is a round silver plate with relief surface, to which nine curved sections of a silver strip, following different directions, are soldered. Ends of these sections are divided into two, so between them  ambers of the prolonged shape are set. Amber is semi-transparent, of the yellow-brown colour, with partly left oxidised crust. Through an additional detail the pendant is connected with a silver round-shaped torc with a hook clasp.

Paulina Binek was born on 4 September 1968 in the city of Boleslawiec, Poland. She graduated from the Gdansk Jewellery School in 1986. Lives and works in Gdansk. Designs and produces art works: small statuary, interior objects, jewellery and bijouterie. In her creative work she tries to emphasise the magical nature of the sun stone. She is known for her jewellery, in which amber is combined with gold, silver, precious stones, silk, linen, wool, and felt. The civilisations of the Ancient Egypt, Byzantium, Africa, and America inspire her to create her collections.
