EXPO ‘Kimiaki Kageyama & Bernhard Schobinger’ – Gallery S O, Solothurn (Switzerland) – 27 Aout-25 Sept. 2010

Gallery S O is presenting an exhibition of forged and chased jewellery in iron by Kimiaki Kageyama & Bernhard Schobinger.

EXPO 'Kimiaki Kageyama & Bernhard Schobinger' - Gallery S O, Solothurn (Switzerland) - 27 Aout-25 Sept. 2010 dans Bernhard SCHOBINGER (CH)

 » Kimiaki Kageyama ist Professor und Leiter des Metallbereichs am Hiko Mizuno Jewelery College in Tokio Japan. Schobinger über Kageyama: Die aus dünnem Eisenblech geschmiedeten und ziselierten Blätter haben unter anderem ihre Tradition und Entsprechung in den berühmten Käfern aus Eisen, die während der Edo- und Meijizeit einen Kulminationspunkt technischer Virtuosität und künstlerischer Umsetzung in den hoch spezialisierten Metall-Werkstätten von Meistern des Schwertzubehörs darstellen.

Der Zürcher–Goldschmied Bernhard Schobinger, mehrfach national und international ausgezeichneter Künstler zeigt neuste Arbeiten aus geschmiedetem Eisen und Meteoriten.
– Schobinger versucht, «einer Gesellschaft, die eigentlich keinen Schmuck mehr braucht», wieder verzauberte Objekte zu geben. Schmuck ist für ihn keine Dekoration, sondern in allererster Linie «ein Kommentar». Der Kommentar gilt der Gesellschaft, in der wir leben, und den Bedeutungen, die Materialien und Gegenstände gemeinhin haben –. (WOZ) »

KIMIAKI KAGEYAMA —  brooch, 2006, iron, gold
Kimiaki Kageyama -  brooches, 2006, iron, gold


The Swiss jewellery maker Bernhard Schobinger does not want to commit himself to the different directions of contemporary jewellery during the last decades but still is one of its most important exponent. His works indicate a pleasure and humour of experimentation, by connecting precious, sometimes cosmic materials with relicts of our throwaway society. Rarely there are smooth forms and symmetric combinations, but a preponderance of brute, almost crude pieces that attract visually and tangibly by their near perfection. The wearer is sensibilised through the contact with the original quality of the materials. They are the basis of his critical examination with jewellery making. The process of production begins with the choice of materials that Schobinger collects in his surroundings, on flea markets, demolition sites or on travels. Objects of waste such as junk, plastic, wood, sheet, bones, disused objects like old arresters, toothbrushes or combs, abandoned jewellery or chemicals are recycled and transformed into jewellery pieces with intentionally few interventions. Techniques play an important role; beside unconventional means, Schobinger uses also modern methods as laser cutting to be able to cut and work with the densest precious stone, the polycrystalline diamond. The chosen way of working demonstrates the sensitive appreciation of the maker towards shabby looking materials.
His work is internationally awarded and shown in museums in Switzerland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, USA and Japan.

Prix Émile Hermès – thématique disponible le 15 sept. – deadline : 30 Nov. 2010

Classé dans : Concours / Competition,France (FR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:17

Le Prix Émile Hermès est né en 2008 de la volonté de nourrir la créativité de jeunes designers

en leur proposant un sujet qui leur permette d’apporter une contribution originale et essentielle aux aspirations de notre société, et de les encourager à une période clé du développement de leur activité

Pour sa deuxième édition, le Prix Émile Hermès étend son rayonnement à l’international, et s’inscrit dans la politique de soutien à la création de la Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, aux côtés des arts plastiques et des arts de la scène.

Le Prix Émile Hermès intègre logiquement de nouvelles préoccupations : la prise en compte des savoir-faire manufacturiers ou industriels nécessaires à la réalisation des projets présentés, ainsi que l’indispensable respect de l’environnement dans une démarche de production et de diffusion.

 La thématique sera révélée le 15 septembre lors du lancement du Prix.

Je remercie chaleureusement Monsieur Toyo Ito, d’avoir accepté d’être le Président du jury de la deuxième édition du Prix Émile Hermès.

Pierre-Alexis Dumas,
Président de la Fondation d’entreprise Hermès


Les inscriptions (conditions de participation, règlement et module d’inscription) seront ouvertes du 15 septembre au 30 novembre 2010, sur ce site Internet uniquement

Prix Émile Hermès - thématique disponible le 15 sept. - deadline : 30 Nov. 2010 dans Concours / Competition hermes_logo


The second Prix Émile Hermès relaunches the award as an international competition, and establishes design as a central focus of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, complementing the Foundation’s established policy of support for the visual and performing arts.

Reflecting the Foundation’s support, the prize will acknowledge new criteria in 2011: a keen awareness of the craft skills and industrial manufacturing expertise required for the production of each entry, and a sustainable, environmentally-friendly approach to the manufacturing and distribution of the finished product.

This year’s theme will be announced at the official launch of the prize on Sept. 15.
