SCHMUCK 2011- ‘Jewels for the Ladies’- Munich (DE) – 17-20 mars 2011

Jewels for the Ladies.
Bead necklaces designed for Anita Evenepoel and Marjan Unger,
Students from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp.

As a sequel to the project Ring for the Lords of last year, where students of the 2nd and 3rd bachelor’s courses were asked to design rings for Walter Van Beirendonck and Marnick Smessaert, we are this year presenting Jewels for the Ladies.
« The task of the students was to design a jewel for Anita Evenepoel, a textile and costume designer, and myself. They not only had to base their jewel design on their own talents and ideas, but were also asked to focus on a person that was far removed from them with regard to age and experience. This addresses an essential triangle in the world of jewellery design, namely that of the maker, the wearer and the viewer. Actually there is a fourth aspect that still belongs here, namely the platform on which the jewels are presented.
An important question in art education is to what extent one can involve the reality of the profession in educational courses, because a great difference always remains between studying and making your own way as a designer in the various echelons of the jewellery profession.
However, the process of focusing on another person can provide students with unexpected insights, stimulating them to new directions in their work.

A bead necklace is a primeval jewel. The principle is simple, but within the parameters of this type, all kinds of different variations still appear possible from year to year. The assignment for the students was to highlight their mastery within these limits. » (Marjan Unger – Art historian and author)

j’adore l’idée de ce collier, où chaque perle a été recouverte de plusieurs couches (16 !) de gypse ou de peinture. Chaque couche est de couleur différente. A cause de leur fragilité, ces différentes couches vont s’user au fur et à mesure que les perles se touchent et se frottent lors du porter. Et donc chaque couche -chaque couleur- va apparaitre au hasard ……..
