EXPO ‘Gésine HACKENBERG: Still Lifes’ – Sienna gallery, Lenox (USA) – 14 aout-12 sept. 2010

‘Still Lifes’ by Gesine Hackenberg at Sienna Gallery

Everyday objects as jewelry : Gesine Hackenberg’s latest jewelry collection, ‘Still Lifes’, is made out of table glassware that she has cut, ground, and re-purposed into brooches and necklaces.

« The source of Gésine Hackenberg’s newest work, Still Lifes, lies in her study of 17th and 18th century Dutch still life paintings and their meaning, the tables exquisitely laden with the finest tableware and food. She re-interprets this perfect translation of the three to the two-dimensional, the realistic vista of the dishes, glasses and bowls, into her work. The Still Lifes collection consists of two groups: on the one hand brooches like small sculptures, carved from stone. On the other, brooches and necklaces in which everyday glassware has been cut and rearranged into new compositions, new still lifes. The body takes on the role of the canvas as it were and becomes a tableau vivant.  »

« All My Treasure-
Occasionally, the realm of jewellery and commodities come together very closely…
Objects we use everyday become intimately precious and indispensable to us, just as it happens to a piece of jewellery we wear day in, day out.
On the one hand there are objects that help us to master our daily lives in a purely functional way. But on the other there are those to which we feel very close, to which we are joined as it were. Maybe this is because they’ve just always been there. Or maybe our mother and grandmother already used them. It might be just a tiny detail that fascinates us, almost nothing. Sometimes they seem to embody our wishes, moods, memories, a certain goal or habit, our affiliation with a certain group?
And then again they may not be really practical at all. But still we like using them and in a very personal way they seem to belong to us like we belong to them. For such an object adapts through our specific way of handling.
We love them. They become the jewels in our daily lives.
I’m fascinated by the aspect of personal preciousness revealed in all kinds of belongings. Especially in objects that seem to find a place close and near to the body. I explore how these pieces can relate to the body and examine this relationship through its connection.
The use of these things pertains to body measurement and the wearing of jewellery is about use in daily life.
My materials of choice are precious metals, antique ceramics, glass and textiles, as well as the very tough and resistant Japanese Urushi lacquer. These all come from interlocking themes of household, kitchen, table and food culture. These materials seem to embody this fleeting commonplace culture surrounding us by preserving it.
Often my objects and jewels, ‘kleinoden ‘ (Dutch for little treasures), are primarily small, autonomous objects. Either through its use (spoons) or an intervention in the original object (ceramic jewellery), a relationship with the body is established or the object is made wearable. I want to allow the object and the jewellery to exist in both environments.  » (Gésine Hackenberg)

Ted NOTEN ………… ‘Tedwalk’ en rouge et blanc

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Hollande (NL),Ted NOTEN (NL),VIDEO — bijoucontemporain @ 0:07

Je vous avouerais que les créations (bijoux ????) de  Ted Noten ne m’inspirent … rien ! emoticone
Mais là, cette mise en scène …… aaah …. il y a « quelque chose » …. en tout cas, ça m’a fait sourire !

An exhibition of work by jewellery designer Ted Noten at Stedelijk Museum’s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands (Dec. 2008) was launched with a catwalk show, « Tedwalk » , where 12 models wore 12 pieces created since 1995 to 2008. (Photographs by Sharon Mor Yosef and Guus Schoth)

« On November 23d, Ted Noten was awarded with the Francoise van den Bosch Award, an international prize for jewellery makers…. We have combined the award ceremony with a catwalk presentation for the opening of a solo-exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum’s-Hertogenbosch.
Ted explicitly did not want to show his works in glass boxes on socles, and he has always wanted to organize a catwalk show with professional models. We have collaborated with the Amsterdam Fashion Institute in organizing this event and have attracted many professionals that have (partly) donated their services. During the show, 12 models wore 12 pieces from Ted’s oeuvre. After all models returned and placed their items on wooden circles on stage, the lights went off and 9 working men entered the room with perspex covers. All works were covered, lights went on again and there was the expo that stands for 6 weeks (until January 11th). » (Design Magazine Dezeen)

JOYA BARCELONA- EXPO del colectivo Bórax08001 – Escola Massana, Barcelona (Spain) – 13-23 sept. 2010

La presentación oficial del colectivo Bórax08001 se celebrara el 13 de septiembre a las 19h con la inauguración de “Proyecto Inicial” en la Escola Massana, Barcelona. La primer exposición de joyería artística de Bórax08001 como colectivo permanecerá abierta hasta el 23 de septiembre 2010 .
Este evento forma parte de OFF JOYA, en el marco de JOYA, la Semana de la Joyería Contemporánea de Barcelona del 16 al 18 de septiembre


colectivo Bórax08001

« Borax is a basic component in jewellery because it prevents oxide from forming and, at the same time, works as a flux favoring the flow of metal when it is being soldered and fused. The bórax08001 collective acts as an antioxidant that drives our artistic creation, but also as a flux, favoring the flow of ideas and concepts as well as the development of new techniques and trends in contemporary artistic jewellery.
We come from multiple geographic coordinates and backgrounds. This particularity has enriched us personally and as a group ever since our paths crossed at the Escola Massana (Barcelona, Spain). As we grew up and deepened our skills as jewellers at Massana, strong synergies and complicities were created between us. And we have chosen bórax08001 as the means to keep them alive, searching for new horizons and goals while sharing experiences and learning from each other.
Our work can be defined as the cartography of personal and experimental dialogues through contemporary artistic jewellery. Dialogues through matter, space, color… based on quests, poems, memories, doubts, thoughts, mistakes, games, dreams, intuition, perfection, light, consciousness, unconsciousness, beauty, and emotions.
Bórax08001 means contemporary, artistic signature jewellery. Signature, because we value work from beginning to end and we wish to recover the value of authenticity, taking pride and joy in creating high-quality jewellery, putting special emphasis on the details. Contemporary, because our pieces of jewellery speak for us and reflect the society we live in. And artistic because we strive to express ourselves through metaphors and symbols while we create unique pieces. »
