Bienvenue sur mon blog

Bonjour & WELCOME ! :-)

Classé dans : Arcangelo BUNGARO (IT),nacre/coquillage,Non classé — bijoucontemporain @ 4:22

Passionnée de bijoux, admirative de tout ce savoir-faire, à défaut de savoir créer moi-même, je souhaiterais mieux faire connaître les créateurs de bijoux contemporains, partager mes coups de coeur, transmettre l’information quant aux expositions, lieux où rencontrer « du bijou » (galeries, magasins…), les « bouquins » à voir (en ce qui concerne les LIVRES sur le Bijou, voir mon « board » Pinterest )

(Jewelry BOOKS board on Pinterest)

La France n’est pas très « amie-amie » avec les créateurs de bijoux ! Elle a la « Place Vendôme », et puis ….

Comme le dit joliment « Quibus31″, un créateur de bijoux, sur le site de La Manufacture « en France ….il y a la cour des grands, la verroterie …. et le désert de Gobi entre les deux…. »

Il faut déjà savoir que lorsqu’on parle « bijou » il y a trois grands domaines : la joaillerie (or, diamants et pierres précieuses pour schématiser), la « bijouterie fantaisie » (généralement fabriquée en masse) et enfin le « bijou de création », fait, lui, à la main et en séries limitées. De plus le « bijou de création »peut être fait à partir de n’importe quel matériau, l’or, le diamant si l’on veut, mais aussi le papier, les plastiques, tissus, objets de récupération, etc etc  ….

Ici, c’est du « bijou de création » que je souhaite parler !

Peu développé et peu connu en France, parce que peu de galeries, à priori pas de formation spécifique « création bijoux » (parce que, tout simplement, à la base, il n’est pas défini, identifié, dans la liste officielle des Métiers d’Arts, ce qui implique beaucoup de choses : pas de statut, pas de formation, pas de Syndicat ou d’Association nationale, etc etc … on tourne en rond !)  pas de grande « messe » annuelle, pas de presse spécifique, et même dans la presse dite « féminine » il est rarissime de trouver mention de créateurs de bijoux !

donc, ta-taaam ! me voilà !!! :-) )

« As a visual artist, my relationship with jewelry is bidirectional. My jewelry is influenced from my artistic research. Observation and painting require the engagement of all of our senses, thus, in my work I draw on memory and therefore on my senses.
Addressing jewelry as micro sculpture, I refer to form, material, colors and texture to conceptualize personal memories and my view of social and cultural issues into art. »

Yiota Vogli’s interview

26-04-2017
Where is your inspiration coming from?
It’s very important to stay mind open. I seek inspiration everywhere; the ideas are always out there. It’s about being in the right state of mind to take the ‘half formed pictures’ and turn them into something that works.
What are you trying to communicate in particular with your artwork?
Making art is a self expression but most is a way to communicate and share ideas or emotions.
Which material you prefer to use and why ?  
It depends of the idea I want to communicate! I love working with simple non precious materials like paper or paper pulp combined with metals like silver or oxidized brass.
How much value do you give to researching material for your creations?
Is very important to make a research of the materials you use in every project, to experiment up to the limits of them.
Is it more important for you the process, or the final artwork itself?
Both, but I am enjoying the process a lot! Every piece is a challenge.
Is there an artist you prefer and why ?
There are many, I prefer those works which are simple, brief, concise and direct.
Have you ever thought to collaborate with other artists , or you like to work on your own? 
Making art is a lonely procedure, but Yes! I would love the opportunity to collaborate with other artists.    
Where do you feel you are at with this last collection?
As an artist I transfer onto my work pictures, stimuli and sentiments.
What have you discovered of yourself, are you satisfied ? Looking deeper inside me… I feel that I am in a good direction!
Two words to describe your last artwork collection.    
Unconscious thoughts.

AJW 2017 - 19-05 : 19.30 : opening : “Worthless” by Arkivet Collective

Welcome to the opening of The ARCHIVEs exhibiton « Worthless » opening Friday the 19th of May 19.30 at Gallery IOS22 in collaboration with ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK 2017

http://athensjewelryweek.com/
http://www.arkivet.info/

ARKIVET (the Archive) is a group of Norwegian artists consisting of Putte H. Dal, Hilde Dramstad, Elsie-Ann Hochlin, Camilla Luihn and Heidi Sand.
As jewelry artists they each have their artistic distinction. What they have in common is that they like to apply a theme based and conceptual approach to their craft. Since their debut as a group in 2014 they have had numerous exhibitions both in Norway and abroad.
ARKIVET sets out to investigate, through their individual works, different angles on how jewelry may work as a medium to promote dialogue in society today. Projects are developed through discussion and research with a common wish to bring jewelry as an artistic expression into contemporary society. As an example ideological, socialist, capitalist or ecological values may be analysed and processed through jewelry to artistic expression that fosters reflection.
The jewelry materials, artistic idiom and narrative content discusses concepts in the context of sitespecific exhibition design. For each project ARKIVET reaches out to interdisciplinary collaborators such as musicians, writers and philosophers, and ARKIVET also publishes annual publications.
In the WORTHLESS project the group wishes to explore how worth or value is perceived in today’s society. What makes something valuable? What is worthless? ARKIVET promotes a visual and mental association space for a discourse about the social and economic mechanisms that govern what is considered valuable. ARKIVET emphasizes the communicative aspects of jewelry and chooses to reveal something about human dignity, political aspects, self-esteem and the environment.

« This collection has been created as a need to express my experience of being a new parent. When I observed all internal and external changes of the pregnant body, I embraced all the emotional ups and downs that we both had. I kept the storm of feelings created the moment we saw our baby and hold it in our arms and finally I stood amazed at the magnificent process of breast feeding. All these became the fragments of time at my beginning on the way to parenting.

« The human body is a space. The human body takes up space. The human body is the separator of an inside and an outside space.
How do these spaces interact with each other? Are they interconnected or out of balance? How do human beings deal with the condition of being the mediator?
Maybe there is no distinct answer but the exploration of these questions through the notion of materiality might be an answer in itself. »

COUP de COEUR ! Victoria Ioannidou “THE UNBAREABLE LIGHTNES OF CO EXISTENCE”

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),Victoria IOANNIDOU (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 2:30

New amazing work by Victoria Ioannidou jewelry-object designer,maker
“ THE UNBAREABLE LIGHTNES OF CO EXISTENCE”
The time has come to leave behind and part ways with all that is negative and preserve the quality of my life
because I am the one who will choose …to give up….. to live in the past…. to loose my pride..to fear…
OR to react… to feel anger… to fight ..and finally to move on.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” ― Mae West
so………………..
I had to destroy the path ,leave no trace, so the evil could not follow me

TRESORS is a creative activity in constant evolution which aims at highlighting formal and personal individuality. It is where the concept of “content” takes up all of its meaning and importance.

Zhou Yiyan Piece: Set Of Jewelry, 2016 Porcelain with matte and glossy gold paint Photo by: Martin Konrad © By the author. Read Klimt02.net Copyri: Zhou Yiyan Piece: Set Of Jewelry, 2016 Porcelain with matte and glossy gold paint Photo by: Martin Konrad
Set of Jewelry it’s a composition of objects in porcelain displayed on a porcelain tray.

Zhou YiyanComing from the province of Anhui in the east of China, Zhou Yiyan studied art and design at the Shanghai Normal University, and then worked as a graphic designer for four years before settling in Paris in 2007 to pursue her artistic studies in photography and fashion design at Berçot Studio.
She subsequently developed a collection of art objects in porcelain that are inspired by her fascination for circles in Chinese culture, and that are worn as jewellery. Each item is unique and created by the artist in a contemporary ceramics studio. Featuring glossy or matt enamel, gilded or left untreated, each piece requires a long period of design work and perfect technical mastery in order to adapt the artisanal processes of ceramics to suit the desired form.
In 2016, Zhou Yiyan was among the 5 winners of the Young Creative Craftsworkers Award, which has been run by the Ateliers d’Art de France since 1960 with a view to revealing new faces from the vanguard of crafts in France.
Also, last year, in spring, Yiyan was noticed by Esther de Beaucé who selected a dozen pieces for Yiyan ‘s solo exhibition :“Circles”, which was held at Esther’s MiniMasterpiece Gallery. The gallery also showed Yiyan’s work at PAD PARIS ART+DESIGN, and ART ÉLYSÉES Art & Design, along with pieces by contemporary artists and designers.
In these porcelain circles, inspired by the traditional circles of Chinese culture and embroidery rings, Yiyan metaphorically retranscribes the complexity of human society, of the ties between people which build into circles (family, friends…) She primarily reveals the joy that she experiences when she spends a full day in the company of the “soft and modest clay” which she discovered at the Manufacture de Sèvres.
Yiyan exhibits her works in international Fine Craft & Creation Biennial taking place in Grand Palais, Paris.
 Zhou Yiyan interviewed by Klimt02

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Iro KASKANI « en vedette » at Klimt02 !

Iro Kaskani interviewed by Klimt02

« Recently I realized that my curiosity is the most powerful motivating factor behind my work. I’m curious to see things that I visualize becoming facts, to elaborate an idea, to experiment on a certain technique, to see how this or that material is treated, to investigate on however a vision can be a wearable object and yet to see how others perceive my work. »

& Iro Kaskani on Klimt02

Where the LINE is all the story ……….. (aaaah !! « of course » ! she were an architect !!!!)

« Architecture is built environments, planned and designed to function as shelter or vessels of activities and thus it is fostering a physical relationship with the user, inhabitant or viewer. Jewelry takes this physical relationship further into intimacy by the change of scale and placement on the body… »

« Some years ago I used to believe: “my education and experience in architecture is guiding my creativity and my work is mostly determined by the interest to compose fine metals with alternative material and define new forms.”
Later on I concretised my thoughts stating: “Architecture is built environments, planned and designed to function as shelter or vessels of activities and thus it is fostering a physical relationship with the user, inhabitant or viewer. Jewelry takes this physical relationship further into intimacy by the change of scale and placement on the body. Through my work, I find it intriguing to explore ideas of space, scale and absence of symmetry, enabling me to combine precious metals with non-precious elements. Designing jewelry feels like investigating form, structure, and balance to derive a piece of art which will have an intimate physical relationship with the human body and will be completed only when it becomes part of the wearer’s experience and expression. A piece of jewelry is a powerful vehicle for communicating our identity.”
Recently I realized that my curiosity is the most powerful motivating factor behind my work. I’m curious to see things that I visualize becoming facts, to elaborate an idea, to experiment on a certain technique, to see how this or that material is treated, to investigate on however a vision can be a wearable object and yet to see how others perceive my work. »

With the « the space in between » collection I elaborate the idea of creating a void, an empty space. I worked with silver to form cavities and gaps and spaced elements in order to create a void and then, in there, I presented a detailed work of threads
