With the exhibition ELIGIUS AWARD 2022: Jewelry Art in Austria the MAK, in cooperation with Kunst im Traklhaus, Salzburg, once again offers an insight into the contemporary Austrian jewelry scene. For the fifth time, the MAK is showing the entries for the "Eligius Award for Body Jewelry and Jewelry Objects”, which was established by the federal state of Salzburg in 2005 and is awarded every three years. This year ten items have been selected, with the prize ultimately being awarded to Lilian Naomi Mattuschka, who impressed the jury with her wooden body sculptures.
