Artist list  :   Nevin Arig – Sara Gackowska –  Celina Gram — Jonathan Hens – Dimitar Stankov

  from Jonathan Hens :    LONG LIVE THE KINK  part 2 collection

« The new work from the serie LONG LIVE THE KINK of   Jonathan Hens  reflects with stunning ability the diversity and unity of our realities. The individual designs, consisting of distinct structures and leather materials, refers to the structures that make human beings versatile. The notion that each individual is an individual in his or her own right that differs from others through superficial and hypodermic characteristics becomes apparent. However, subtly Hens’ work forces us to look beyond. Touching upon the underlying notions in his previous collection where he made us question the differences between sexes, this collection makes us question the importance of dissimilarities. Hens’ most recent collection compells to focus on the unity rather than the diversity of individuals. In designing LONG LIVE THE KINK he started out with one geometrical shape and slightly tweaked and bended the particular form. The sublime interpretation of reality cunningly brings perspective into the dualistic worlds of the other and the self. Leaning towards the tabula rasa concept, he shows the oneness of human beings together in one nation.Becoming typical of Hens’ work is the insights he leaves us with regarding our world and how we choose to perceive it. «   – by Agnes Sabitova

Astonish HOLY ROCK

« Child of the elements.
You connect us to the past and our memories. You give us silence and peace. Hypnotized, we gaze at you when exploring your inner worlds. Born from time and the forces of nature you are everlasting and the matter of our making.
Every Rock is holy, indeed. From stones as silent observers, we make valuable experiences, we communicate through our making. Find the seven makers of ASTONISH for the third consecutive year at SCHMUCK, to pay hommage/tribute to ‘THE HOLY ROCK’ in you and me.
So let us celebrate together Gems and Jewels. »

« My main subject is about private space. In my pieces I create rooms, containers, boxes or little caves. These spaces can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer, that they use to confront a busy world. »

 » For people as well as for jewellery, everything begins with the skin – the surface, the countless surface possibility in jewellery pieces depending on the material and workmanship. We can try to look through the skin/surface and try to interpret with those pieces. On display are the latest works of 11 jewellery artists and 1 painter from Munich.  »
Every perception begins with the skin, the surface. For people as well as for jewellery. Here, in jewellery, there are countless surfaces – smooth or rough, monochrome or multicoloured, porous or impermeable, chaotic or orderly, depending on the material and workmanship. There are no limits to the diversity of haptic sensations. Likewise with the jewellery in the exhibition Die denkende Haut [The Thinking Skin]. Are we able to look through skin, though, through the surface, inwards, to the essence of the jewellery? Can we do it with people? Neither is a simple undertaking! But we can try to interpret, to read them.
For example, with Julia Obermaier, who cuts, polishes and assembles sculptural-architectural forms from agate, the stone that emerged from volcanic nodules over millions of years. The immortality of nature and the finiteness of man are brought together in an allegorical juxtaposition. Or with Carina Shoshtary, who takes graffiti, dissects it and recomposes it in her jewellery. Messages are thus preserved and interpreted anew. Freedom of thought is manifested in jewellery. The concrete necklaces by Samira Götz only appear to be heavy; they are, however, surprisingly light. They function as burden and liberation at once. The last example is Merlin Klein, whose ‘ash jewellery’ simultaneously stands for grief, solace and remembrance.
The works on display constitute not just surface, technique and workmanship; they are concepts, with a message for the beholder. They allow one to gaze deep into the essence of the individual, nature and the universe; this is jewellery and art, or art and jewellery, or only jewellery, or just art, wearable on the skin or an object in a vitrine, ultimately simply beautiful and an eternally exciting process when one allows the ‘skin to think’. / Dirk Allgaier, February 2018
« Thinking is not only an abstract act of intellectual reckoning, but also a kind of responsive intelligence permeating our bodies and navigating us through our daily entanglements on the physical, emotional and creative planes. In this sense, dance is an embodied reflection on space; and the mind of an angler is in the hand curled around the fishing rod. Similarly, the movement of fingers on the keyboard of a piano is a visible extension of the musical thinking within the body of a performer, and the same fingers on the keyboard of a computer reproduce the dictates of a cerebral algorithm.
Between anything that touches and anything that is touched – be it an inanimate object or a living body – is the skin, which not only sends out signals like lustre, youth and freshness fromwithin, but also absorbs impulses from without, to be analysed, interpreted and answered in due time. The skin is an interface, revealing an inside and effecting responses in the environment; or thinking an outside by opening up and responding to stimuli. And when it becomes a foundation and support for structures of metals, stones, pearls, etc., then it draws in the elements of the world into its own cycle of impression and expression, transforming them into jewellery and enabling the enhancement of an adorned body.
But, owing to its intermediary position between an inside and an outside, the skin is afflicted with the same mysterious hybridity that characterises all limits and thresholds. Is it still the body? Or is it already part of the environment? Is it still an organ covering all other organs, a spread of epidermis capable of being seen, touched, injured? Or is it already a material, formed to a shield, a mask, an ornament? Or is it neither the one nor the other, but simply an immaterial and intermediary space of difference?
Such questions cannot be quite avoided in the familiar “practices of appearance” like the fine and the applied arts. They are also at the root of the constellation of jewellery and painting that are being presented in this exhibition. »  / Thinking skin by Pravu Mazumdar

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)

Books graphics

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 !!! :-) )

EXPO ‘‎Hidden curriculum’ – during the MJW 2018 – Atelier Cepissakova, Munich (DE) – 8-11 Mars 2018

 

« ‎Hidden curriculum »

Contemporary jewelry exhibition inside   Munich Jewellery Week  (7–10 March 2018)

Popeye loves Olive  Art Space hosts an exhibition platform during Munich Jewellery Week by inviting a group of 14 Greek artists to meet the Mexican artist Jorge Manilla and to develop a joint project on Hidden Curriculum, Identity and Proxemics. 

Opening: Thursday 08/03/18 @19.00 – 22.00

Popeye loves Olive‎Hidden curriculum* MJW 2018

Participating Artists:    Jorge Manilla – Aggelika Diplari – Aggelos Konstantakatos – Anna Vlahos – Antria Prasinou – Artemis Valsamaki – Erato Kouloubi – Ioli Livada –  Joanna Grigoriou – Liana Pattihis – Marina Zachou – Niki Stylianou – Xenia Deimezi – Yakinthi Oikonomou – Yiota Vogli

 

 » Hidden Curriculum*
The Hidden curriculum consists of teaching items which are not officially intended and developed by school and educational system. The educational authorities use the concepts of “hidden curriculum” and “invisible curriculum” to explain teachings and attitudes influenced by these implicit factors (Alavi, Abdollahi and Ahmadi, 2008).
With the intention to explore behaviors, perspectives and attitudes, that the participants adopt during their learning process, in an independent way outside of an institution.
For this exhibition we have decided to take the idea of a Hidden Curriculum and explore in a free but very careful way, issues like gender roles, morals, social class, stereotypes, cultural expectations and personal language.
According to the Austrian artist and architect Hundertwasser, we have five layers of skin. From the innermost to the furthest from the centre: Epidermis, Clothes, Houses, Identity and Earth. Each layer (skin) defines and interacts with the whole human entity.
According to Proxemics, we arrange objects and ourselves in relation to space as it makes us feel more or less comfortable. Individuals naturally maintain a separation that relates to environmental and cultural factors but also to social and interpersonal situations. One could say that proxemics is separated in Intimate, Personal, Social and Public Space/Skins. Moreover, all layers of Space/Skins interact, affect and define each other.
Most importantly, it should be underlined; the above studies claim that Identity is created by social interplay.
According to history, Jewelry serves as a primary means of conveying cultural values. Traditionally, jewels were seen as sacred and precious; however, from the beginning of the 20th century, jewelry has started to be objectified. Jewelry as a result of all human social interactions becomes a product of non-verbal communication.
The process, through which a piece of jewelry is created, is totally connected with the cultural and social background of each jewelry artist. From the selection of materials to the final product, it is needed that all different possibilities and perspectives of this act to be explored.
On the other hand, the viewer interacts both with the maker and the wearer of a piece of jewelry; as jewelry narrates stories and communicates feelings and Identities. 
By comparing fourteen Greek jewelry artists’ work in opposition to that of a Mexican artist and educator; this exhibition seeks to collect information on how hidden curriculum, proxemics and identity are expressed through jewelry.
What kind of space occupies the work of each artist? What kind of skin it represents? «

Astonish HOLY ROCK - MJW 2018

Child of the elements.
You connect us to the past and our memories. You give us silence and peace. Hypnotized, we gaze at you when exploring your inner worlds. Born from time and the forces of nature you are everlasting and the matter of our making.
Every Rock is holy, indeed. From stones as silent observers, we make valuable experiences, we communicate through our making. Find the seven makers of ASTONISH for the third consecutive year at SCHMUCK, to pay hommage/tribute to ‘THE HOLY ROCK’ in you and me.
So let us celebrate together Gems and Jewels.

Evolution pas à pas, en secret, avancées toujours en secret et mystérieuses …. quelques coups d’oeil, comme de petites fenêtres entr’ouvertes sur une création intimiste ….

Inspirations architecturales pour série « Urbanismo Inhabitable -ciudades de porcelana« 

 » … inspirada en los elementos decorativos que se usaron en la casas racionalistas canarias a partir de los años 30, el llamado « nudo geómetrico », cuyo nombre se lo puso el arquitécto Marrero Regalado refiriéndose a las lineas paralelas de corte redondo que hacía el arquitécto Jose Blasco en sus casas. Esto dío un sin fin de secuencias en muchísimas fachadas en todo tipo de barrios de los centros capitalinos tanto en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria como en Santa Cruz de Tenerife , que poco a poco he ido archivando para seguir desarrollando en forma de piezas, de la pared al cuerpo…….. »

DISCOVER MORE about Roxy Lentz & her jewelry through the Klimt02 interview !

« A truly passionate jewellery artist who only wants to make jewellery in order to make people happy with her creation and make people think. » (24-10-2017)

« The majority of my jewelry is fabricated with repurposed metals. I love the patina of metal that has had a former life, the owner decided it no longer had value, and I make it into wearable art.
I use as few chemicals as possible; I consider them unnecessary to achieve a beautiful patina, using just a torch and flux. I attempt to make jewelry that has a life for the person who will wear it. »
