(in)SIDE EFFECT


Within the unique context of the 1st Lisbon Contemporary Jewellery Biennial, happening between September and November of 2021, Tincal lab invited the artists represented by the gallery to reflect on the times we are living in.
More than a year after the launch of ANTIVIRUS by Tincal lab, the topic of the pandemic remains as relevant as the threat is real. In the context of the COLD SWEAT theme proposed by the 1st Lisbon Contemporary Jewellery Biennial, we asked the artists to reflect on the (in)SIDE EFFECT - of the disease - and of the cure. Of the fear, the change, the involuntary pause, the inevitable reflection. The side effects are physical and mental - they affect patients, loved ones and the population in general, who has been robbed, at best, at least the possibility of making plans for an immediate future. Some side effects are predicted, others will be unpredictable and depend on the reaction of each one to what he can and what he cannot control.
Will we be able to evaluate them already?
