This project was commissioned by curators Jana Zielinski & Jiří Macek for «Manifesto», a show that took place at the Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace in Prague and which celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Designblok.
Taking into consideration the Czech context and its renowned glass industry Jorge studied the properties of this material and decided to concentrate on the technical attributes rather than its commonly explored, ornamental qualities.
He decided to further develop an exercise previously initiated for his solo show at Madrid-based gallery Machado-Muñoz. With a metal buckle and a leather strap Jorge created «Look Mum no UV!» a simple yet versatile constructive system that explore glass connections in an unorthodox manner.
