« The jewelry that has come in and out of my life over the years has had a profound effect on me, and ultimately, fueled my desire to be a jeweler. These special pieces changed my perspective on jewelry and form part of my history. In « Fabricated Memory: Jewelry Box, 1980, » I created new works based on recollections of the contents of an old jewelry box and re-imagined through my formal language of shape and line, layering and repetition. In addition, significance lies in how the work exists in reality–arranged in a specific manner and viewed as a group, not just as individual pieces. This aspect stems from how I played with the jewelry box as a child, carefully arranging its contents over and over.

In « Collected Memories: 1974-Present, » I analyzed the jewelry I own to discover patterns and to gain further insight into my history with jewelry. The completed installation serves as a timeline of my life with jewelry and a vehicle for intertwining events and people. The works are made using materials I have collected and are assembled in such a way as to emphasize the impermanence and incompleteness of memory. « This is How I Remember It » chronicles my history and preserves my memories, as the individual pieces from my past act as primary inspiration. » Amy Tavern

et plonger la tête la première dans la HEAD …..

la HEAD ? la Haute Ecole d’Art & de design de Genève (Suisse), et plus particulièrement l’orientation design-bijou

EXPOSITION « PASSE-PASSE »  - la date de fin de cette exposition est largement dépassée (Exposition du 2 au 12 juillet 2008) mais je ne résiste pas à la tentation de la faire découvrir aux « retardataires » comme moi ! :-(
Le thème est passionnant, le(s) résultat(s) SUPERBE(s), et, surtout, ce qui me fascine, cette propension qu’ont les écoles étrangères (hors France s’entend) à COMMUNIQUER, INFORMER sur leurs élèves ………..
 UNE SÉLECTION DE TRAVAUX D’ÉTUDIANT(E)S DE L’ORIENTATION DESIGN BIJOU
Parallèlement à l’exposition «de main à main» au Mudac, l’orientation Design Bijou de la HEAD–Genève présente à Viceversa-L’Annexe une sélection de travaux d’étudiant(e)s réalisés lors des interventions des créateurs de bijou Sonia Morel et Dorothee Striffler ainsi que du designer Timo Kuechler.

Le collier et le mouvement ont été les thèmes proposés par Sonia Morel, créatrice de bijou Lausannoise, aux étudiant-e-s de première année durant son intervention au printemps 2008 à la HEAD – Genève. Le résultat, décliné en 11 parures, foisonne d’idées et démontre une richesse d’interprétation aussi bien d’un point de vue formel que conceptuel. L’ondulation d’une fine feuille de métal côtoie les traces d’un objet sur le corps ou la magie d’un bijou qu’on transforme d’un geste.

Cette exposition est également l’occasion de montrer des travaux résultant de l’intervention de Dorothee Striffler, bijoutière allemande formée à Pforzheim, qui a partagé son expérience d’un travail précieux et rigoureux autour de la chaîne. Éléments répétitifs par essence, qui nécessitent une parfaite maîtrise de l’assemblage et des proportions.

Timo Kuechler, responsable du design chez Niessing a initié des créations surprenantes en imposant le bois et la bague comme sujets de recherche. Les bijoux expérimentaux qui en découlent illustrent avec beaucoup d’humour la capacité des étudiant(e)s à innover.

EXPO ‘UltraMarine’ – Tallinn, Estonia – 7 Oct.-6 Nov. 2011

UltraMarine as a word derivates from Latin ultra + marinus and means ’over the sea’ or ’beyond the sea’.
Ultramarine is a fiery blue pigment extracted from lapis lazuli, one of the oldest precious stones used in jewellery for thousands of years. Lapis lazuli or lazurite was imported to Europe from Middle Asia by sea via Venice, hence the name ’beyond the sea’.
Ultramarine was a rare and valuable colorant, as expensive as gold leaf because of its remote origin and complex production process. Medieval masters often used that exotic pigment for the uppermost colour layer only. Sometimes just the robes of Virgin Mary and li’l Jesus were painted using the priceless blue.
UltraMarine is a solo sailor’s route across the sea, an artist’s dialogue with a material that takes place while she works at her desk. One can spy a knowing smile on the countenance of she who has arrived at her destination – for the joy of surpassing oneself is the greatest pleasure of all. A co-conspirator knows the feeling well. The sea unites; the land divides. UltraMarine is bluer than the sea.

(Sara Borgegård – necklace: ULTRAMARINE 2011 – Iron, embroidery thread, lapis lazuli, spraypaint)

 

There are works of 51 artists from Estonia, Europe, US, Australia and Asia, which will be seen in an exhibition space specially set up for the occasion in the Noblessner district. UltraMarine exhibition will be accompanied by an 80-page catalogue which will be published for the opening of the exhibition.
The exhibition is initiated by four fellow jewellery artist from Estonia: Merle Kasonen, Julia Maria Künnap, Maarja Niinemägi, Kertu Tuberg.

UltraMarine is part of the programme of the European Capital of Culture Tallinn 2011

Le bijou est bien plus qu’un simple ornement, il est un media de rencontre. Tel un roman, il peut avec un anneau nous conter une histoire d’amour. Tel un carnet de voyage, il peut avec ses matériaux surprenants nous emmener ailleurs. Tel un pamphlet, il peut à l’aide de ses badges revendiquer. Cette exposition vient interroger le langage du corps, par le bijou et ce qu’il raconte. C’est une invitation au dialogue, entre mots précieux et bijoux bavards. GLA, collectif d’artistes bijoutières, s’empare du Verbe et propose chez Objet Rare une narration plastique avec ses bijoux de mots. Galatée invite à entrer dans des bulles de BD. Laurence se joue des mots avec des bagues « cadavre exquis » et expose un travail réalisé en binôme avec une écrivain, Joëlle Guillais. Aude rend portables nos textes préférés. 

L’exposition sera visible:
du 3 au 27 novembre à OBA Bibliothèque Nationale, Amsterdam

Florence LEHMANN « généa-logique »

Diplômée de l’Ecole des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg, Florence Lehmann (née en 1964 à Brumath et membre fondateur de l’Association Corpus) y enseigne aujourd’hui la création du bijou contemporain. Elle collabore aussi au cahier de tendances du CPDHBJO et a été nommée membre du Conseil des Métiers d’Art. Elle crée des collections pour différentes entreprises éditrices de bijoux. Ses pièces uniques, essentiellement en résine blanche – régulièrement exposées dans des galeries ou des musées – entretiennent par leur gestuelle, un rapport étroit avec le corps…  (Gal. Elsa Vanier)

With the genealogical series of rings, she is pursuing her research on the meaning of the transmission and the mould as a matrix. The imprint is thought of as a complete technique and system for procreation. When the transmission of characters is truly close, successful, like a cloning. These notions of a journey, chain, matrix and their analogies to the body have rarely achieved such a subtle reminiscence in jewellery. » (Michèle Heuzé-Joanno, « généa-logique » -galerie V&V exhibition 2006)

The flesh of words,
A common thread in contemporary French jewellery

by Michèle Heuzé-Joanno, exhibition commissioner
« Florence Lehmann ‘bejewels’ her life, dresses her jewellery. Once, as a young girl, head in the clouds, she transformed part of the sky into a brooch, a cut between two roofs. She shared this dream energy, this softness of the blue sky against the blues of the soul, that of metal as a mirror reflecting life. Then, she fell in love, and her work, with humour, puns, constantly narrated this link. From her happiness was born a little girl, Rosa-Lou. The thought process was once again moved; with maturity, the analysis is more subtle, blending maternity with the questioning of the creative process. Her artistic quests are those of all women, all mothers. Her jewellery touches because each one can find in them his or her own story. They are complicit jewellery, without a sophisticated image. Her assets do not change, she knows the communicative strength of colour, words and symbols.
Her colour is white, her penchant red. White is neutral and red acts as a contrast, with words giving the spirit. In this way, a large bracelet takes on consistency with its title: The empty is full (Le vide est un plein). The interior, the empty, is red, cut out in the form of a heart. Profiles of faces serve to describe human relationships, uncertainties. Tu me fais tourner la tête, a ring to turn people’s heads. The waltz, another to be balanced where two profiles face one other in a sceptical dilemma. On a bracelet, the profiles are linked by a red thread: the secret is in the look. The title sometime serves as a riddle or as a link between two elements: Today is a ring where the finger is placed between the inscription “tomorrow” and an old Egyptian medallion, for “yesterday”. The wearer becomes active, you oscillate Between, wisdom and passion, two earrings. The body is active, gestures participating in unveiling the sometimes hidden message. In this way, a ring where “yes” is written on one side and on the other “no”, reflecting the difficulty of speech or the desire of the day…Pushing the involvement of the body and the designer’s taste for words, one earring can only be read when reflected in a mirror.

From the first to all appearances
Why do we wear jewellery? To go out into the world as for the first time, to make us suitable to appear. From the link between this first appearance and the wearing of jewellery to appear, Florence Lehmann studies the mysteries of this.
Think of a ring, a bracelet, a necklace. To put it on, to make it exist, you put it on: and so it is born. Think of yourself, your arrival in this world, this first arrival, this first outing: and so you are born. The journey stops when the child’s head appears, stopped at the nose. Fl. Lehmann freezes time to take advantage of the moment and better understand the jewellery and its significance. The necklace, externally, round like an egg, carries within the silhouette of the wearer. Through necklaces of large pearls that can barely be put on, she translates the sensation of this. Certain pearls remind us of stylised bones, others round and particularly voluminous, like a belly, bear on a flat side the Mysteries of life: cellular divisions from the first three days in fresh and joyous colours. On others, the face is covered by the face of a child, masked by gold leaf, which fades with time. The mystery remains, you can never know everything about somebody, it is through contacts that the veil is lifted.

The internal drawing of the face is taken up again on a gold thread or silver chain, with the faces passing by one another, from one birth to another, between ancestors and children, the jewellery is a chain, a human chain, a genealogical chain. In this way, Fl. Lehmann goes back to our roots. On the bracelet, Noah, the descendants of the latter are enumerated. Its formal complexity takes up the symbolism again: the calligraphic link, in white latex, holds two shells, the mould for objects to come. Since 1998, Fl. Lehmann has been reflecting on the analogy between the plastic birth of shapes and that of men, between creation and procreation. Her colour, white, is participative here. “White, on our soul, acts like absolute silence… This silence is not dead, it overflows with possibilities for life…it is a nothing full of juvenile joy or, to put it better, a nothing before any birth, before any beginning”.
With the genealogical series of rings, she is pursuing her research on the meaning of the transmission and the mould as a matrix. The imprint is thought of as a complete technique and system for procreation. When the transmission of characters is truly close, successful, like a cloning, Fl. Lehmann reflects it in noble metal and not white resin. These notions of a journey, chain, matrix and their analogies to the body have rarely achieved such a subtle reminiscence in jewellery.
