Joya Barcelona 2011 – Galleries/schools – ALCHIMIA

Alchimia Gallery has no specific address, and no fixed base, to promote contemporary jewellery projects in different and sometimes unconventional spaces by producing, organizing and supporting cultural events, exhibitions and fairs. This use of transient locations reflects the spirit of adventure, mobility, innovation and energy, inherent in the philosophy of Alchimia Jewellery School.

The gallery’s activity is directed mainly to the motivation and support of artists, part of the Alchimia “family” with the aim to provide opportunities for visibility and growth through the creation of a valuable international network.

At JOYA 2011 the gallery is presenting a selection of work from teachers as well as students graduated in 2011: Lucia Massei (Italy), Doris Maninger (Italy-Austria), Marzia Rossi (Italy), Daniela Boieri (Italy), Yoko Shimizu (Japan), Aline Battegay (Switzerland), Anja Eichler (Germany), Wen-Hsien Carissa Hsu (Taiwan), Gabi Veit (Italy), Lea-Maria Becker (Denmark), Jade Drakes (Trinidad), Nadege Roscoe-Rumjahn (Canada) and Satita Rajpojjanarat (Thailand)

Nonostante le traversie politiche ed economiche del nostro paese il made in Italy continua a essere uno dei brand più potenti del mondo, riconosciuto in ambito internazionale per le qualità estetiche e manifatturiere dei suoi prodotti. “Bello e ben fatto” è la definizione largamente condivisa del prodotto italiano, soprattutto di quello afferente ai settori delle 3A: abbigliamento, alimentare e arredamento, considerati storicamente come gli ambiti più competitivi e rappresentativi del prodotto italiano. Una mostra raffinata ed elegante che presenta l’Italian way attraverso una selezione di oggetti esemplari dell’eccellenza progettuale e manifatturiera italiana realizzati intorno al corpo. Icone del design e oggetti misconosciuti che rispondono a funzione diverse –abitare, mangiare, vestire, ornare- e che troviamo impiegati in ambiti diversi – dalla casa alla cucina all’ufficio allo sport-. Denominatore comune è il corpo considerato come ispiratore sia di proporzioni e forme che nel dinamismo dei suoi movimenti. Emerge un paesaggio variegato e mobile di oggetti che non cedono mai alla tentazione del narcisismo del segno a vantaggio di innovazioni silenziose, ironiche e intelligenti che rappresentano la cifra più interessante del fare italiano.
Dal sandalo di Ferragamo per Judy Garland ai battipanni di Gino Colombini degli anni 60 e alla sua rivisitazione odierna di Odoardo Fioravanti, dalla penna di Marco Zanuso per Aurora al gilet dj di Barnaba Fornasetti, dall’apribottiglia di Alessandro Mendini alla pipa di Joe Colombo e alla moka Bialetti, dal bicchiere per il Campari di Matteo Ragni ai ricami preziosi dei gioielli di Buccellati o di Ascione fino alle scarpe automobilistiche di Schumacher e ai coltelli inutili di Giulio Iacchetti, dall’orologio di Aldo Rossi per Alessi alla lampada Ellisse di Vico Magistretti fino alle stringhe di Giancarlo Montebello, i bicchieri di Laudani e Romanelli e l’anello spazzolino di Paolo Ulian. E ancora le cravatte di Marinella, le borse di Roberta di Camerino e di Bottega Veneta, i foulard di Gucci, il cappello Borsalino, le scarpe Superga, lo zaino Invicta, gli occhiali Persol ma anche la scimmietta Zizi di Bruno Munari, la macchina da scrivere Valentine di Ettore Sottsass o il televisore nomade Doney di Marco Zanuso e Richard Sapper, il taglia carte di Enzo Mari e il fermalibri di Marco Ferreri, i bastoni da passeggio di Massimo e Lella Vignelli, le posate di Paola Navone. Protagonisti i gioielli come quelli di Barbara Paganin, Alba Polenghi Lisca, Carla Riccoboni, Donatella Pellini, Riccardo Dalisi, Gaetano Pesce, Benedetta Miralles Tagliabue, Afra e Tobia Scarpa.
Per Alba Cappellieri, curatrice della mostra: “L’Italian way dimostra qui la sua varietà formale e tipologica, la sua capacità di coniugare la qualità manifatturiera con la ricerca industriale ma anche la radice umanistica del prodotto italiano. A partire dal Rinascimento, non a caso fenomeno artistico esclusivamente italiano- l’uomo è stato al centro della creatività italiana, sia dal punto di vista dell’ergonomia che dei movimenti richiesti dalle diverse funzioni. Il design italiano si distingue proprio per la sua straordinaria capacità di ridisegnare comportamenti attraverso gli oggetti o di progettare oggetti a partire dai gesti. Joe Colombo amava suonare il piano, bere e fumare contemporaneamente e a partire da queste esigenze progetta il bicchiere Smoke che permette di svolgere le 3 funzioni insieme o la maniglia Lama di Gio Ponti per Olivari pensata a partire dalla torsione della mano nell’aprire.
“L’interesse di questa mostra – afferma Roberto Ditri, presidente della Fiera di Vicenza- è nell’evidenziare, attraverso una selezione di oggetti fresca e interessante, la straordinaria capacità dell’Italian Way di coniugare l’alto artigianato con l’alta tecnologia anche per oggetti apparentemente minori come un apribusta o un guanto, a dimostrazione che non c’e’ bisogno di grandi gesti per essere innovativi.“


an exhibition dedicated to THE ITALIAN WAY BETWEEN CRAFT AND TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS AROUND THE BODY presents a unique selection of icons from fashion – as the Ferragamo judy garland and invisible sandals, Bottega Veneta handmade bag, Roberta di Camerino bagonghi, Marinella ties, Gucci Accornero silk foulards Fornasetti dj gilet – , design – as the Sottsass Valentine typewriter, joe Colombo smoke glass, Zanuso Brionvega Doney tv, Matteo Ragni Campari clic glass, Gino Colombini and Odoardo Fioravanti carpet beaters, Giulio Iacchetti 4eyes glasses- sportswear – as the Schumacher shoes, the Invicta backpack, the fabio testa Caiman-
The human body as an inspiration and reference point for design returns with manifest evidence in the work of designers, artisans and stylists, all of whom since the sixties have stood for Italian excellence in the world. While it is commonly known that fashion, design and Italian craft have turned made in Italy into the most widespread brand in the world, less is known about the central role played by the body as a formal and semantic matrix. This exhibition is thus dedicated to the Italian way of mixing craft with technology, and on display here are objects that belong to very different areas and contexts, ranging from fashion to electrical appliances, from jewelry to furnishings, from sportswear to electronic goods, all of which were designed starting right from the body. Hence, fully aware of the fact that so many of the made in Italy icons were born from the body and around the body. Starting with the founding fathers of Italian design, names like Gio Ponti, Achille Castiglioni, Bruno Munari and Joe Colombo, whose first steps would always involve measuring movement, casting a gesture so as to shape volumes and define details. This can be seen in Gio Ponti’s Lama door handle, a lever that’s light and airy just like the hand that touches it, but also in Castiglioni’s in-line cord switch shaped like the thumb that snaps it on, or Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper’s Grillo folding telephone, a clam-shell that springs open, smooth and round, fittin snugly into the hand that picks it up…

HOST a BROOCH – an Urban jewellery project by Jacqui CHAN – Christchurch (NZ) – 26 Aout-1er Oct. 2011

Classé dans : brooches,COUP DE COEUR,Jacqui CHAN (NZ),Nlle Zelande (NZ) — bijoucontemporain @ 15:29

 HOST a BROOCH – an Urban jewellery project by Jacqui CHAN

HOST A BROOCH takes jewellery to the streets of Christchurch, inviting the public to (re)connect with the city through an urban jewellery adventure.

HOST A BROOCH is the concept of Jacqui Chan, and is presented by Christchurch contemporary jewellery gallery, The National.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/198777_10150334243201613_782756612_9689185_6387511_n.jpg

HOST a BROOCH is a jewellery exhibition with a twist. The project transforms urban debris into wearable artworks and explores how these work in the world. The public are invited to ‘host’ a brooch on an excursion through the city to see how it activates connections with their surroundings. 
The Host A Brooch ‘depot’ is located in a converted shipping container. Operating like a bike-sharing system, the public are invited to ‘host a brooch’ on an urban adventure. Just as a bicycle transforms our experience of a city – producing new sensory experiences, routes and encounters – jewellery also alters how we encounter a city.
Walking around the city, the body becomes the vehicle for a mobile intervention. The brooches claim a prominent position on the body, demanding attention and provoking conversation. As remnants of the city, they also draw attention to overlooked aspects of one’s surroundings, evoking material histories and connecting us with the material ecology of the city. 
Taking part, the goal is to wander the streets aimlessly. See where the brooch takes you. See what happens  - like a Situationist psycho-geography. On your adventures, take photos showing how the brooch connects you to your surroundings. 
Over the six weekends, each brooch is worn by multiple people, resulting in a myriad of different experiences. Wearers are asked to document their experiences with photos and notes. These accumulate in the exhibition, becoming a cartography of these jewellery-led adventures.
Host A Brooch is one of many projects that are currently exploring ways of reinvigorating Christchurch city through the arts. Although architectural and infrastructural change will take time, the arts can respond more immediately to reinject life into the city.
A catalogue will be produced to document the project.

EXPO ‘Kathryn Wardill: Adversity ‘ – e.g.etal, Melbourne (Australia) 13 Sept.-1er Oct. 2011

Classé dans : Australie (AU),Exposition/Exhibition,Kathryn WARDILL (AU) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:05

Kathryn Wardill : Adversity

http://www.egetal.com.au/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/KW_10.jpg
Kathryn Wardill - ring: Toy — Around and Around — Damage with Every Movement 2011 – Oxidised sterling silver, recycled 18ct yellow gold wedding ring

For Kathryn Wardill, poor concentration and skills, a creeping lack of judgement, inability to sustain work ethics and difficulty adhering to timelines were complications encountered in the making of some 40 rings. In fact, these difficulties have indelibly influenced the nature of her new series, Adversity. This collection of rings explores the emotional and physical consequences of adversity, exploring the ways in which difficult personal situations affect the making process from a conceptual and technical perspective.
It is one thing to make items about difficult subjects, it is another to make during difficult events. The artist has adapted to ways of making jewellery while going through a difficult time in her life. The work is heavy in weight, scale and colour. The surfaces are blackened and rough. The techniques used in the creation of these forms have been limited to the minimum required for each. The work is highly personal, the titles of the pieces offering the viewer a glimpse into the events of the last six months of the artist’s life.
“The work is dark, heavy and bold, because it’s tied to the concept,” says Kathryn. “In this body of work, the process is inseparable from the materials, the techniques, the story. As a result the work is very personal. It’s been difficult, but I feel I’ve produced an open expression of adversity.”
“Kathryn’s new series is a slight departure from her prolific work combining glass and metal with design-driven simplicity,” says Emma Goodsir, director of e.g.etal. “Her new range of rings form an intensely intimate story, but one that is universal in its candid determination and honesty in the face of adversity.”
Kathryn Wardill is a Melbourne-based contemporary jeweller who received her Master of Arts (Fine Art) by research from RMIT University in 1998. As a jeweller and glass artist she has actively participated in group and solo exhibitions internationally for the last 15 years.
