Room of Wonder II Wouters & Hendrix

The second part of a series of Rooms of Wonder exhibitions is opening at the DIVA diamond museum on September 13th 2019. The Antwerp design duo Wouters & Hendrix takes over the baton from Axel Vervoordt as guest curators. Katrin Wouters and Karen Hendrix look back at what has amazed and inspired them in their 35-year career as jewellery designers and storytellers with a view to bringing together items of jewellery from their own body of work with gems from DIVA’s collection, contemporary art and curiosities.

Antwerp's craftsmanship

The leitmotif of the exhibition is Wouters & Hendrix’s fascination with remarkable stories and the precious metals silver and gold. The novel assemblages, so typical of their work, provide an explosion of forms and colours. An important aspect of the exhibition is Antwerp’s famed craftsmanship which is reflected in the collections.   

Set design

Set designer Bob Verhelst reflects the design duo’s inimitable, surrealist style in an imaginative exhibition set. He has designed several of MoMu’s (Antwerp fashion museum’s) exhibitions, including ‘Delvaux. 180 years of Belgian luxury’ and ‘Margiela. The Hermès years’.
