EXPO ‘Pieces of Fate’ – Pieces of Eight Gallery, Melbourne (AU) – 24 Mai-2 Juill. 2011

 Have you ever come across a piece of jewellery, and thought to yourself, this must have been made for me… And there it was, just sitting there, quite simply, waiting to be found.

Pieces of Eight Gallery presents Pieces of Fate, a group exhibition of exquisite handcrafted pendants. Drawing inspiration from Professor Robert Baines, who coined the term, the exhibition includes works from 37 of the gallery’s represented artists who broadly explore the idea of an objects fate. Within the pendants various manifestations lay inherent intentions, purposes and appeal; an unquestionable right to exist. What then becomes its destiny?
Historically, pendants have provided all kinds of meaning and perceived powers for the wearer. Pieces of Fate explores how the modern day pendant can tell a story, possess magical powers or provide particular protection to an individual. It playfully engages with conversations about how materials, symbols and personal concepts give power or inscribe meaning to a piece of jewellery, and consequently how this may cause it to potentially determine its wearer.
With the making of each pendant, the artist was asked to record who or what the pendant may be for. This confidential text travels with the piece as a secret exchange between the creator and wearer of the pendant. As Kevin Murray states in his essay about the exhibition, « These incantations represent an important step forward in the restoration of jewellery power. They’re more than reflections on the personal inspiration of the jeweller. They also anticipate how the pendants will be experienced by the wearer. »

 Profondo, Alchimia graduation show

jeudi 16 juin · 18:00 21:00

PROFONDO
curated by RUUDT PETERS
and to the End of the Year exhibition of the first and second year classes

Alchimia Jewellery school in Firenze presents ‘Profondo’ graduation exhibition of the third year/specialization course in contemporary jewellery taught by Ruudt Peters. A research focused on extending and deepening the working methods and personal reflections of each artist.

Eight different approaches and techniques led to heterogeneous experimentations, ranging from issues related to the complexity of relations between individuals, attempts to objectification of emotions, to growth as a result of a regulated destruction process. Set up in the basement of Piazza Piattellina Square, in the striking stone cellars of Alchimia, the exhibition is articulated as a fragmented path that expresses a discourse about the multiple possibilities and related significance of body adornment.

« Karen Vanmol seeks in her work harmony to unite two worlds.
She is looking for a delicate balance between elements of the busy, modern city life and references to the silence and the slowness of nature. Her jewelry combine in a sensitive way clean organic shapes, and building materials with natural materials. Such as ground plans of a house look like farmland, a forests look like skyscrapers, in Karens work blurs the boundary between town and countryside. »

(comme ces fenêtres à « rejas » de Séville, ou les moucharabiehs ….)
« …my recent work presents deteriorated architectural forms as objects of adornment. As a series of brooches, they reference jewelry’s historical representation of wealth, while their forms capture degraded fragments of local architecture. Folds and cuts in iron surfaces invite peering into their voids, where delicate patterns set in colored enamel offset the dark metal façade. Reminiscent of wallpaper, the patterned interior surfaces speak of a careful care and consideration put into adorning ones own personal space. Voyeuristic glimpses inside the pieces reveal worn surfaces suggestive of domestic interiors.   » (2010)

My work reflects my intimate world. Often I construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, boxes, nests, clusters, and cities that mirror my feelings, dreams, and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past, my family history, others to the people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries and territories. I am intrigued by the process in which walls simultaneously define and shut out space. I love the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete; cycles of growth and decay, eroded geological structures and abandoned buildings inspire me. I often make unorthodox combinations of materials to create tension and balance. Sometimes I use found objects: quiet mirrors of other intimate worlds.

« En esta serie me dediqué a juntar paredes imaginarias, a construir pequeñas arquitecturas llevables que convocan la memoria a tiempos pasados: a vivencias, experiencias y convivencias. “Las Casitecturas” se convierten en recipientes de sensaciones.
Pequeños laberintos de la memoria, que invitan a paseos imaginarios por sus interiores.
Pasillos, ventanas y paredes, que forman un conjunto y que se comunican entre ellos. Suelos cuyos superficies han sido pisados miles de veces hasta gastarlos. »

« Previously trained as an architect, I have always envisioned buildings as machines. Architectural elements are designed to form spaces that manipulate activities and movement. While jewellery cannot divorce itself from the human body, the most intimate space lies in between the body and the object(s). I approach jewellery design as constructing spaces on the topographic contours. »
