"Time is a treasure"

Nacho Carbonell presents his first work incorporating hard stones with “Time is a Treasure”.the starting point of this project: slices of blue agate, the interior of which was kept by French jewellery houses to create jewellery and clocks. Nacho choose to reinstate these neglected stones with their own right to become clocks too, reinterpreting them in the light of his approach at the junction of mineralogy and genetic manipulation.”In the end the stones gave me the idea of what they wanted to be, their frustration fuelled their desire. By imagining my own clocks, I wanted to reinstate them with what had been taken from them”
