Jorge Manilla Only Memories

 « This is not just another story, this work tells the story of our lifes, a story of love and death, of feelings and tempations, Wild moments, intense moments, moments that make us feel that we are alive… » Jorge Manilla

Please don't take away my heart by Jorge Manilla
« Please don’t take away my heart » by Jorge Manilla


Platina welcomes Jorge Manilla from Mexico City to his first exhibition in Sweden.
The exhibition is a great contrast to the light Swedish minimalist idiom. Instead we are invited into an odyssey into the endless void black holes that are simultaneously filled with feelings indescribable in words.

Jorge Manilla’s work challenges us to confront the deepest feelings and fears we usually avoid. It consists a huge production with wild mixtures of touching stories and twisted relationships. The language is special in which experimental solutions are framed by love and religious upbringing.
What we see is the dark side of passion, the hollow interior of a body, torn apart by emotions. The work is dark, twisted and broken forms of cut leather, which is reminiscent of hopeless knots in ones stomach, burning sores or open wounds. The series is a collection of very unusual and unique jewellery pieces with moral and physical anatomy of the human soul. It is a reminder that human strength in the end overcome the sad and wounding moments. It is a reminder that the horrifying, in fact, is insanely beautiful, and sounds of vulnerability are just signs of heroic strength.

Jorge Manilla, the son of a family of Mexican goldsmiths and engravers, studied visual arts at the Academy of San Carlos, in Mexico. He received a highly technical jewellery training at the Academy of Craft and Design from the Mexican Institute of Fine Arts. But it was until he moved to Belgium, years later, where he enrolled at the Karel de Grote Academy in Antwerp, that he was forced to forget about the traditional notion he had to jewellery, to let his technical skills aside and to research about the cultural meaning of jewellery, its conceptual possibilities and to experiment with materials and techniques . – Sofia Björkman 2012

EXPO ‘Knitted, Knotted, Twisted & Twined’ – Bellevue Arts Museum, Bellevue, WA (USA) – 7 Fevr.-17 Juin 2012

Knitted, Knotted, Twisted & Twined: The Jewelry of Mary Lee Hu

February 7 – June 17, 2012

« You’ve heard it said, « All that glitters is not gold. » Well, in this exquisite exhibition at Bellevue Arts Museum, the glitter certainly is gold. Gold and silver jewelry worked so dramatically and precisely that the sparkle astounds, delights and amazes. » — Nancy Worssam, The Seattle Times

Over the past 40 years, Mary Lee Hu has affirmed her distinctive voice in the world of jewelry with her elegant, voluptuous creations. Using wire the way hand weavers use thread, Hu has blazed a trail as both artist and innovator, exploring the nexus between metalsmithing and textile techniques. Keen to metal’s ability to bend and manipulate light within a textured surface, Hu’s work is a testament to her sophisticated eye for weightless and rhythmic lines, translated into body adornment. Featuring more than 90 exquisite earrings, rings, brooches and neckpieces drawn from public and private collections internationally, this retrospective traces Hu’s evolution from her experimental designs of the 1960s to today’s creations full of light and movement.

Join the artist for a rare, two-day, wire working workshop on May 12 & 13.

EXPO ‘BON BONS’ – AVID Gallery, Wellington (New Zealand) – 14-28 Avril 2012

« Bon Bons » New Jewellery by Tatjana Panyoczki

EXPO 'BON BONS' - AVID Gallery, Wellington (New Zealand) - 14-28 Avril 2012 dans Exposition/Exhibition TP+email

« Besides being an accomplished jeweller, Tatjana Panyoczki is an avid candlemaker. Homemade candles are used by her and her family and given away as gifts. Panyoczki saves all of the dripped remnants of her tapers and asks others to do the same. As the globules of wax are returned she separates and stores them according to colour. When enough wax is collected, Panyoczki melts the recycled bits down and like an acient alchemist, mixes wax to form new orbs of new and wonderful hues. She dips the pompoms into the parrafin giving, as she describes, « the two components a new life and structure, which transforms the wax into a less fragile state and preserves the pompoms ». This slow creation, destruction, gleaning, sorting and reconstructing seems to be a very satisfying way to work and live. « -  Kristin D’Agostino

Tatjana Panyoczki is one of AVID’s foremost innovative jewellers.
Born in Zurich and trained in Lausanne and Geneva, she first worked in film and theatre special effects in the UK and Europe, and her obvious interest in drama is evident in her jewellery.
She and her husband (painter Peter Panyoczki) moved to New Zealand in 1993, and Tatjana studied 3D Design at Auckland Unitec, majoring in jewellery.
Tatjana’s jewellery is widely sought after in New Zealand, Australia and in Europe.

EXPO ‘Chained’ – Benaki Museum, Athens (GR) – 25 Avril-27 mai 2012

‘Alysodeméno’ – ‘Chained’

EXPO 'Chained' - Benaki Museum, Athens (GR) - 25 Avril-27 mai 2012 dans Exposition/Exhibition invitationBenakiFinal


« ‘Alysodeméno’ – ‘Chained’, represents a body of work, a journey in time which links pieces created from 2005 to today, from my early experimentations with enamel, through to ‘Adapted Patterns’, a collection based on the simple schematic linear patterns relating to various types of Greek traditional aprons and costumes. The title ‘Alysodeméno’ is used here primarily as a metaphor. The work not only involves enamel which is ‘chain bound’, but also reflects a personal visual language. As the future is inexorably linked to the past and the traditional is tied to the contemporary, so is the strong undivided link between what represents me as an artist and my Greek-Cypriot cultural heritage. «  Liana Pattihis
