Okinari Kurokawa : Edelmetal – Edelstahl – Edelstein

EXPO '「Edelmetal・Edelstahl・Edelstein」' - Gallery Deux Poissons, Tokyo (Japan) - 22 Oct.-7 Nov. 2010 dans Exposition/Exhibition CRO2010extrim2

  本展のタイトル「Edelmetal・Edelstahl・Edelstein」はドイツ語で、「貴金属・ステンレススチール・貴石」を意味します。ス テンレススチールは、英語ではstainless steel(錆びない鋼)というのに対して、ドイツ語ではEdelstahl(高貴な鋼)と表現することに惹かれたという黒川。ステンレススチールをメイ ンの素材として、edel(エーデル、『高貴な』の意)の語呂合わせで、貴金属と貴石を組み合わせたジュエリーで展覧会を構成しています。
 一般的にジュエリーの中心的な素材として使われることは少ないステンレスですが、黒川は以前からステンレスの可能性に着目し、自身のジュエリーに用いて きました。黒川は、ステンレスの魅力を「色や硬質な感じがプラチナに近い雰囲気があり、より明るさがあるところ。しかも比重が軽く、強度も十分なのでとて も使いやすいこと」と話しています。しかし、制作上の機能性に加え、審美的な視点から、ステンレスの新しい形や魅力を引き出すジュエリーを生み出すことが 黒川興成の真骨頂といえます。
 新しいリングの構造を探究し続けている黒川らしい新作の一つは、ステンレスのフレームに、アメジストやトルマリンなどの天然石が浮かぶリングのシリーズ です。ラフな風合いを残した不定形な色石と、直線的で無機質なフレームのダイナミックな対比が、互いを引き立て合っています。20金のパーツを使って緻密 に作られており、指に通すとスムーズに石が動き、ぴったりと指になじみます。このリングはペンダントトップとしても使用できる構造になっており、宙に浮か んで動きが加わるとがらりと表情を変えます。また、置かれている姿は、小さな建築物やモニュメントのような完成された構築的な美しさを備えています。
 さらなる進化を続ける黒川興成の新作ジュエリーをぜひ会場でご覧ください

Okinari Kurokawa - rings

 The exhibition title “Edelmetal – Edelstahl – Edelstein” (“precious metal, stainless steel, precious stone” in German) shows three materials that are used in Kurokawa’s new creation. Compared to English word “stainless-steel”, German describes the same metal as “precious (edel) steel”. Being sympathized with such expression in German, Kurokawa chose stainless steel as a main material in his new jewelries. Although Kurokawa has been using stainless steel in his earlier works, this was another challenge to find unprecedented forms with the material, combining with precious stones and precious metal. The result of artist’s long examination will be shown in the exhibition.

The GRASSIMESSE is an international forum and a fair for applied art and product design from all fields. It stands in the tradition of the historical GRASSIMESSE, founded in 1920 and famous as “Meeting Place of Modernity.” Since the reestablishment in 1997, the fair has been held once each year on the last weekend of October.

The GRASSIMESSE forum and sales exhibition in equal measure, reflects the world of ideas and the variety of contemporary creative design, promotes developments and sharpens the awareness for design quality.

EXPO ‘Mette Saabye – Lost in time…’ – Galerie Louise Smit, Amsterdam (NL) – 23 Oct.-27 Nov. 2010

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Louise Smit (NL),Hollande (NL),Mette SAABYE (DK) — bijoucontemporain @ 15:42

« AS TIME GOES BY.

Movement making marks and leaving imprints in the air. We try to hold on to the experience. Put it in a pocket and hide it away. In the very moment the sentence is uttered. The smell was a mix of sweet and sour. Childhood before everything went wrong. Put it in a pocket. A precious memory, contained in a little treasure without meaning or value. Nothing is more precious than diamonds and gold. Mette Saabye knows this. She puts our memories in pockets. In a pocket on a necklace. In a pocket on a brooch.
Like a puppeteer, she pulls her gold thread and makes us dance and squeal. Fascinated by glittery stones and shiny metal, but mostly fascinated by the familiar. But to seduce is not enough. Finish, decoration and form are not enough. The real content hides inside. The little object worth hiding. Precious. Just knowing that it exists is enough. Keep, hide, cover. The seal makes the memory’s anatomy unbreakable. It is tied, folded and twisted. Still, the quest is impossible. The memory of the memory. Remembrance. Remember to remember. Forget me not.
With sophisticated craftsmanship and a deep knowledge of jewellery as media, Mette Saabye investigates jewellery’s potential. The themes ‘value’ and ‘remembrance’ are investigated again and again. With new visual tools each time. Everyday objects are transformed and elevated to the finest jewels. Their fundamental properties are highlighted and encapsulated so they take on new meaning. Because the material and the object’s value are only decided by social conventions. Their value is altered when they represent a personal memory. It is this paradox that Mette Saabye stages by mixing ‘insignificant’ objects with precious materials such as gold, silver and stones.
She has the piece of jewellery’s iconographic meaning in mind throughout. The pieces have a recognisable and universal jewellery feel. The ring, pendant and brooch as jewellery archetypes are twisted, but without detaching them from their interaction with the body. Jewellery is to be worn and the wear of time is ever present. As the body changes over time, so does the piece of jewellery, to reveal new content.
In this jewellery series, Mette Saabye balances on a knife-edge between the universal and the personal.
