Ruudt Peters has organized a jewelry exhibition where a large number of artists asked a jewel with the weight and content of the soul "21 grams", to develop specifically for this exhibition.

The Crafts Museum of the China Academy of Art Hangzhou shows the exhibition "21GRAM" with Patrícia Domingues (MA 2013), Estela Saez Vilanova (MA 2011), Edu Tarín (MFA 2015), Qi Wang (MFA 2017) and Xihan Zhai (MFA std.) at the Zhuantang Straight Street, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China from 7. November to 10. Decemeber 2018.

"With the intention to prove the existence of the human soul scientifically MacDougall introduced in 1907 a medical experiment by six patients roads during their dying process. The beds were positioned on an industrial scale so that the weight of the patient before, during, and could be held in the holes after death. The patients lost directly or minutes to hours after death "21 grams" weight. This minimal research shows that the soul has a substantial weight. The concept of "21 grams" has a mysterious imagination that is attractive to artists. The weight of "21 grams" is both imaginative and literally for jewelery makers a challenge." Ruudt Peters
