EXPO ‘Piece of Mind’ – Elga Wimmer PCC, New-York (USA) – 5-28 Mai 2011

Classé dans : Carrie Mae ROSE (US),Exposition/Exhibition,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 19:59

The urge to preserve and collect is instinctual. Unique to the individual and manifest in different ways, collections can be material or cerebral, conscious or unconscious, mundane or monumental. In Piece of Mind, ten contemporary artists explore how various types of accumulations — actual objects or amassed memories, deliberately accumulated or inevitably accrued as time passed — can be presented and interpreted.

Piece of Mind was organized by candidates for the Master of Arts degree in Art Market: Principles and Practices at FIT. In their second year, students take a two-semester course in which they curate, execute, and promote a group exhibition. They graduate from the program with the knowledge, skills, and experience needed for professional careers in the art market. The 2011 curators are Anna Casillas, Jacob Coley, Sara Goldfarb, Anya Komar, Debra Kowalski, Briana McKinnell, Allison Mital, Lucas Natali, Susie Parker, Andrea Renaud, Osman Can Yerebakan, and Pilar Zevallos

FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), a leader in career-oriented education, is a college of art and design, business and technology of the State University of New York (SUNY), with 46 majors leading to the AAS, BFA, BS, MA, MFA, and MPS degrees.

Carrie Mae Rose assembles circular objects out of scissors and staples confiscated at airport security, recycled razorblades, plastic zip ties, and cement. These static pieces, installations and wearable items employ collections of dangerous objects to evoke the beauty of shapes seen and unseen in the natural world.

COUP de COEUR : Jennifer LAIDLAW winter landscapes

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Grande-Bretagne (UK),Jennifer LAIDLAW (UK) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:03

Jennifer LAIDLAW :  « My work is inspired by the isolation of the winter landscape. By capturing these scenes through photography, I aim to replicate the fragile and brittle quality that has become dominant in my work. I work directly with the raw images, searching for the details hidden within, before translating these concealed elements onto metal through saw piercing and etching. Rather than be intimidated by the preciousness of the materials, I welcome the addition of accidental marks. By manipulating the metal as much as possible by hand, I aim to observe every stage of the transformation of my jewellery. » (ECA, Edinburgh College of Art – degree show 2009)
