EXPO ‘Evert Nijland in The FrontRoom’ – Galerie Rob Koudijs, Amsterdam (NL) – 28 Mai-2 Juill. 2011

Evert Nijland in The FrontRoom

« Right from the start after his graduation in 1997, Evert Nijland’s jewellery was causing a sensation. In almost every aspect, his work deviates from the accepted traditions. For instance, he approaches a piece of jewellery like a painter his palette: he is mainly concerned about the effect of light falling on a surface. Without the slightest scruple, he bases his work on classical jewellery from the sixteenth or eighteenth century. Not servants of beauty, tempting the eye – his necklaces and brooches made from glass, cast iron, porcelain, wood and textile dictate their own aesthetic norms. His eccentric choice of materials leads to yet another striking characteristic: Nijland, rather than making the entire piece himself as is common practice, often has part of his work produced by another specialists such as glass blowers or weavers. Thus he unites within his work all the skills of the applied arts.

Lovers of jewellery swiftly recognized Nijland’s qualities; his work is passionately collected on the international scene and is to be found in an impressive number of museums, both in Europe and the USA. Galerie Rob Koudijs is honoured to be able to continue promoting the work of Evert Nijland.  »

EXPO ‘SUBSET SYNERGISM – TALES OF MIGRATION’ -Gallery Loupe (US) – 1er-30 Juin 2011

Classé dans : Andrea WAGNER (NL),Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Loupe (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 9:27


In today’s multi-cultural world many people live in a place where they were not born. This presents challenges as well as cause for celebration for those who must fuse more than one culture into their psyche. For jewelry artist Andrea Wagner, the expression of her own experience is palpable in her most recent collection of jewelry.

Born in Germany, raised in Canada, and residing for 16 years in Amsterdam, Andrea has a trifecta of cultures to meld into her identity…and she chooses her work to explain how that has coalesced for her.

Andrea Wagner studied at the Staaliche Zeichenakademie in Hanau, Germany and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Maintaining a studio in Amsterdam, she has had numerous solo exhibitions at galleries including: Gallery Noel Guyomarc’h, Montreal; Petra Spuybroek and Gallery Louise Smit, both in The Netherlands, Gallery Aurum, Frankfurt, Germany and Galeria Reverso, Lisbon, Portugal. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Landesmuseum, Zurich, as well as others. She has been the recipient of numerous grants and artist-inresidence programs.

« «Objection» présente une sélection d’oeuvres d’étudiants actuels et anciens de l’option Objet, nouvellement nommée Art Pôle 2, de l’ÉcoleSupérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg. Nombreuses furent les tentatives dedéfinitions strictes des recherches et des productions au sein de l’optionobjet, mais sa force réside bel et bien dans son ouverture hors champ. En plus de l’apprentissage des techniques liées aux matériauxtravaillés dans les différents ateliers, une réflexion de fond sur l’objet y estengagée. Questionner l’objet c’est aussi aller à son encontre, le mettre en péril. S’opposer au convenu, à l’attendu. Explorant les limites du sens et des procédés de création, les pièces présentées offrent une mise sous tension entre art contemporain, design et technicité. » Gaëlle Cressent et Christophe Marguier

EXPO « Public Displays of Attention » 10-21 May 2011 – at First Site Gallery, 360 Swanston Street, Melbourne
Second solo exhibition of  « up and coming » Melbourne jeweller, Claire McArdle

« Public Displays of Attention is the second solo exhibition for Claire McArdle, a high-achieving RMIT Gold and Silvrersmithing Honours student.  Shopgirl was blown away by the quality and sheer scale of the show. The exhibition is part performance part interactive as Claire invites willing participants to pose with her colossally colourful hand dyed, hand woven and hand spun jewellery. When all is said and done she’ll send you a postcard that captures the experience!  Magnific! Shopgirl met with Claire at First Site Gallery and asked her to strike her best pose with her work »

« This attention grabbing jewellery creates a visual voice which cries out joyously to the many strangers we encounter everyday during city life. Colossal and colourful, these pieces all carry an urge to be connected to others. They create a shared experience for both the wearer and the viewer as they become part of one of the many Public Displays of Attention. »

EXPO ‘Xavier Monclús: The Penguins of Amsterdam’- Galerie Rob Koudijs, Amsterdam (NL) – 28 Mai-2 Juil. 2011

 Xavier Monclús : The Penguins of Amsterdam

Spanish visual art is various: beside distinguished monumental work, we may find absurdist and light-footed elements. Striking examples of this are Dali’s surrealism and the cartoon-like shapes of Mariscal. In the jewellery world Xavier Monclús is the number-one exponent of this free approach. In addition, he uses his medium to criticize the way in which we treat our world, and each other.
Xavier Monclus’s jewellery consists of collages bearing icons borrowed from the realms of children, advertising and comic-strip iconography. Not only does he make collages in a visual sense, but often literally too – his pieces include printed matter and all kinds of objets trouvés. On his previous visit to Amsterdam Monclús, among other things, acquired material for the title-piece Penguins of Amsterdam. In this, as in many cases, he uses animals as a catalyst; this brooch provides a good example of his work: Monclús contrives to conjure up images that are as alluring as they are impalpable.
