bagues incroyables de Sigurd Bronger

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Norvege (NO),rings,Sigurd BRONGER (NO) — bijoucontemporain @ 15:07

« Sigurd Bronger (*1957) lives and works in Oslo. He has shown work at numerous international group shows and has lectured and taught at distinguished art colleges, including the Royal College of Art in London. The love of machines and mechanisms which are no longer used is not merely an expression for humanity’s nostalgic search for the past, but also a comment on our present-day lack of sensibility: Our competence to join beauty with practicality. « The industrial object which becomes an aesthetic value is rendered unusable. It becomes useless beauty, instruments without function. » (Octavio Paz)   » (web « Tanimpimpaporn« )

EXPO ‘Susie Ganch’, Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Francisco (US) – 11 aout-17 Sept. 2010

 » Fascinated by the molecular makeup of objects, Susie Ganch‘s work is made up of multiple interconnected units. Ganch uses traditional materials of silver, steel, and copper, and applies color to her work with sugar-fired enamel. Each interdependent element, or « molecule, » vibrates with movement and « offers us the opportunity see and feel what we are made of. »
Susie Ganch attended California College of the Arts in Oakland, California, and lived in California until 2004, when she began teaching at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. A 2007 recipient of the Virginia Commonwealth University Faculty Research Grant, her work has been featured in Metalsmith, the Style Weekly Fashion Quarterly, and San Francisco Downtown Magazine. Susie Ganch’s work is included in the collections of the Asheville Art Museum in Asheville, North Carolina, and John Crutchfield and Artemis Gallery in Richmond, Virginia . »

Susie GanchRed Ring -  steel, enamel


« I am driven by the idea that the web of life is an inter-connected system. From molecules to atoms everything is structurally made of the same « stuff ». I construct forms that are comprised of multiple interdependent parts. In the piece Rest, the suspension system will collapse when out of balance and when each steel cable is not properly engaged. The « molecules », rings, and collected bits offer us the opportunity see and feel what we are made of. A bracelet of « molecules » sliding over the hand is a glimpse into what that might actually feel like, and a necklace of rubies extending off the neck suggests the view an electron has as it travels through the air and into a body. « (Susie Ganch)

EXPO ‘I Care A Lot – Opening’ – Gallery Platina, Stockholm (Sweden) – 2 Sept.-2 Oct. 2010

A Portable Discussion about current issues in the Middle East.
42 juried jewellery artists from 22 countries showing work on the conflict

 Why jewelry?
« Jewelry is an intimate art medium within the private and the public space which offers a personal relationship and an encounter between the wearer ,the viewer audience and the actual jewelry. It is an invitation to start a conversation and it can make a meeting possible. The body is a portable show case and the wearer chooses what and how to exhibit on him/her. Jewelry express the wearer character and sense of humor, it acts as an extension to the wearer personality, indicating his/her group of belonging, it is asking questions or claiming its opinion about the reality in which we live in, about our society, our surrounding and ourselves« 

The project aim is to raise discussion about current issues in the Middle East through an international art exhibition in which jewellery is the chosen media.
42 pieces of artists from 22 countries were selected independently by five international jury members – experts in their fields of studies and practice: Dr. Otto von Busch (Sweden) – Fashion Activist, Love Jonsson (Sweden) – Craft Critic, Prof’ Vered Kaminski (Israel) – Jewellery Artist, Shari Pierce (USA, Germany) – Jewellery Artist, Dr. Nada Shabout (USA,Qatar) – Art Historian

Cause We Care.
The region’s history and present are seeded with continuous violent national, ethnic and other conflicts. In many aspects the Middle East is considered to be one of the most sensitive and unstable regions in the world; strategically, economically, politically, culturally and religiously. It is located in the center of the international politics agenda. Its historical role, its huge reserves of crud oil and its significance for the three largest monotheist religions are usually taken as reasons for the world’s ardent interest in the region. But the attitude towards the Middle East has pasted the point of a keen interest in world affairs. By now it seems clear that the Middle East is perceived, especially by consumers of Western media, as the place where world dramas converge, or – more accurately – collide. It is almost the opposite of the Bermuda Triangle: everything that happens there pops up on our radars.
What is the Middle East? What is the source of our attraction to it? Is it just that it happens to be the most eventful place on earth? What is the nature of our commitment to effecting the future of the region? Do we really care about what goes on there? Do we really care about what goes on anywhere that is elsewhere? Do we care about the Middle East in a way similar to the way we care about how people look at us? Do we care about it the way we care about what people see in us?

Claire Baloge (FR) -  Camel dung, gold leaf, silk (collier en crottes de chameau … j’adore !!)

« I have chosen to use camel dung, because  it’s shape and color. Although the use of camel dung in jewelry may provoke it also links: in those (not so) far-away countries, many people are still using these animals, and their excrement, in daily life, while some others, a few miles away , are smoking the cigars of the oil business. I have chosen to use gold because gold is the referential measurement on which the whole world economy is founded. It remains a major symbol for jewelry, almost everywhere around the world. While camels are traditionally emblems of the noble class, in the nomad society, a clear mark of wealth and importance. It seems to be two different temporalities, which are still sharing the same space, coexisting in the same territories. »
