EXPO 'ARTornamento 2010' - Alternatives Gallery, Rome (Italy) - 23 Sept.-15 Oct. 2010 dans ALCHIMIA (IT) 50552_144475605588042_1814_n

« The sixth edition of the exhibition ArtOrnamento will present 10 ex-students from the school Alchimia in Florence, one of the best contemporary jewellery schools on an international level. Alchimia represents excellence in innovation in the sector, but is at the same time a place for the conservation and study of ancient goldsmith techniques.
The 10 participants in this year’s exhibition have gained their formation experience through the qualified supervision of the most renowned artists worldwide.
The selected pieces will investigate the close relationship between body and object, by means of a new interpretation of the concept of personal adornment.
The exhibition aims to create a contact between the public and the makers, so as to investigate the result of their research. This is a first important appointment that intends to offer a view on the new frontiers that contemporary jewellery creation is facing.
This year Alternatives has initiated a competition that involves the acquisition of a piece of jewellery that will go to form a new permanent collection dedicated to research jewellery. «

« To this artist, jewellery is a journey through material and form. It tells a story of its own, while following curiosity. The pieces are unique in their forms and combine fragments of the past with elements of the present.«

« This artist has an evident disposition to make pieces that grow into multiplying elements. She inherited this from her home culture, a country where the need for company and fraternity influences ones outlook on many aspects of life. The search for balance and tranquility is a constant. A quest to evoke timelessness.«

« In the pieces entitled ‘Cover and Discover’, this artist uses contradiction as expression in her works. Showing an element or covering it up, using the materials to express this and transforming them into works of art. »

« Continuous research, as a means of escaping. Searching for another type of language to express herself, searching a symmetry inside something asymmetric, searching for an internal balance.« http://blog.alchimia.it/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/sayaka-ito.jpg
Sayaka Ito (JP) (Alchimia 2008-2010)

« This artist is curious about what is inside things that we see. Visually, only the outside of objects can been seen, but often there is more than what the eye can visually see. This brings her to imagine what lies beyond. Similarly, this concept can also be applied to people. Our actions are supported by our body, but come from within. «

« It is evident when looking at the works of this artist that she lets emotion and spontaneity guide her work.«
