Architectures blanches et douces : Kellie Riggs – Moulures haussmaniennes pour le corps, pour mieux l’encadrer …

« My work is not ornament, it is about ornament.
My work is informed by the past, fueled by an interest in contemporizing our visual history. My curiosity in what came before me closely relates to the inherent fundamentals of adornment as a concept; I explore the human body’s direct relationship to architecture, as time has honored the idea that the human body deserves parallel exaltation. Using the decorative and structural articulation of environments like Italian churches, I aim to exploit the body as a site and surface able to be similarly defined.
Adapted fundaments of Renaissance and Baroque architecture encompass my work using identifiable derivations of visual vocabularies, principles, and dynamic functions. Using proportion and balance, contraction and release, my work explores ambiguity of scale. The physicality of each piece is also essential to the visual presence when seen on the body, and the structural presence when felt worn.
This series intends to reframe how the body is perceived by unifying object and body as one. This goal of unification is met with limitations of perception- how does one communicate a theoretical environment where piece meets the intended site, if one does not get to handle the piece personally? The tangible object alone is not the complete work; without the body, only fallen fragments would be found. How are they to be put back?  »

EXPO ‘Jewels ?’ – Galerie JOYABrussels (BE) – 6-29 Sept. 2012

VERNISSAGE vendredi 07/09/2012 de 6:30h à 21:00h


“JoyaBrussels”, est une nouvelle boutique au concept novateur.
Créé en 2011, notre galerie/magasin offre aux artistes l’opportunité d’exposer et de vendre leurs créations en plein centre de Bruxelles, pôle du design et du stylisme.
Notre leitmotiv est de promouvoir les jeunes créateurs en leur proposant une boutique tremplin. Aucune marge bénéficiaire n’est retenue sur les ventes afin de proposer au public un objet de qualité à un prix honnête.
En plus d’un espace de vente, nous proposons une réelle visibilité du travail de l’artiste et ne demandant aucune exclusivité, nous laissons celui-ci libre de poursuivre ses ventes et/ou sa promotion en dehors de notre établissement. Car l’exclusivité “gèle” souvent la courbe de promotion de ce dernier.
Notre boutique est un espace de vente mais également une carte de visite pour chaque artiste y exposant. Nous ne voulons pas prendre de pourcentage, car nous voulons rester dans cette optique “coup de pouce”, cela nous permet également de proposer du bijou contemporain à prix abordable. Nous voulons vraiment offrir aux artistes la possibilité d’exposer dans le centre de la mode à un prix raisonnable.

Anja Eichler: Urbanauts

EXPO 'Anja Eichler: Urbanauts' - Vander A Gallery, Bruxelles (BE) - 6 Sept.-6 Oct. 2012 dans Anja EICHLER (DE) contemporary-art-jewellery-04 Anja Eichler: Urbanauts Brussels Belgium

As an « urbanaut », Anja cruises Shanghai as a sailor among foreigners who do not speak her language. In this labyrinth of human relations where nature is missing, her artworks tell us her journeys and are the witnesses of her audio and visual impressions.
Close to the living ones, Anja’s wearable jewels submit us to mysterious organic realities from deep oceans, lunar landscapes or embryonic elements that cling to the body, moving and breathing together.
We will recognize her signature work gloves material but in more colourful compositions showing the hollows of the waves and furrows as many urban channels, navigating and discovering such a different land.
We will easily embark in this universe thanks to Lise Vachon (Canadian choreographer and dancer established in Belgium), Laura Colmenares Guerra (Columbian/Spanish visual artist) and Todor Todoroff (Belgian Engineer – compositor of electroacoustic music). Their works based on body perception will intensify the living materiality of the synthetic jewels.
The vander A Gallery is pleased to present Anja Eichler’s biomorphic art works together with an interesting artistic performance where dance, video and music come together.

« `Baroque-water-pearls´ got their name, next to other aspects, because of their irregular outer shape. And just because of this special shape, they are sometimes also categorist as `scrap water pearls´. They are not first choice, their shapes don’t fit into special norms and conceptions, they are not perfect round with a smooth straight surface and their luster is broken due to their vivid appearances.
The image, which came up into my mind was to hide every visible detail because they do not fulfill certain expectations. I thought to put them into textile in a way that you only can feel them. It is then your fantasy, which gives the pearls their beauty without seeing them ever.
But nevertheless pearls are always beautiful just because of their unique shapes, their special colors, their sizes and their luster. And every pearl is individual because of this. It is a creation of nature and this beauty is worth to be shown, unless different expectations.
To emphasize this idea, I decided to not hide them.
It seemed to be much more interesting to place them into transparent textile, instead of hides them totally inside an opaque material. Now it is possible to see a bit of their shapes, to feel the weight, to hear the sound when the pearls touch each other and to move them like you want.
The design, which was the result of this idea, is a square tube.
It should be as minimal as possible to give all attention to the pearls inside. The textile I used for this tube/bag is black organza silk. Depending on where the pearls are, the form of the bag will be different and is made by the movement of the pearls. » Karin Seufert

Jorge Castañón at Velvet da Vinci – sept 2012

Velvet da Vinci - sept 2012(The Red Box Brooch)

« Working with Alice in Wonderland, I felt those descents into endless holes in the earth, hidden places perhaps, away from light, where one could not know what was truly there. In an instant, everything belonged to the field of doubts. Then I wanted to talk about abundance and suddenly I knew that I was actually talking about what there is not, about emptiness, and I found myself again making hollow bowls, cavities full of nothing or almost nothing. After that I have kept looking for hidden sites, old hiding places, cracks, containers of many things and of none at the same time, inhabited by mute presences; now I invent them, try to give them voice. Objects and materials that were on the way to oblivion come back to communicate a minimal story, to construct a new illusion.«

EXPO ‘Sam-Tho Duong: LemitcA’ – Galerie Ra, Amsterdam (NL) – 1er Sept.-17 Oct. 2012

 Sam-Tho Duong: LemitcA

We know Sam-Tho Duong from his silver brooches and necklaces, covered with countless sweet water pearls, thus creating a crystal-like skin. His new collection ‘LemitcA’ is the result of an exploration into the possibilities of recycled plastic yogurt bottles.
By cutting, punching and folding the material he creates various elements that ingeniously link together to form objects. Flexible, thus pliable, and wearable as a sumptuous collar.

EXPO ‘Peter Bauhuis: Cupriavidus Metallidurans’ – Galerie Pilartz, Cologne (DE) – 1er Sept.-13 Oct. 2012

Cupriavidus Metallidurans : The entire spectrum of Peter Bauhuis works, his jewellery and his vessels – you can explore all his pieces of rare beauty in our gallery.
September 1 – October 13, 2012
Cordial Invitation to Exhibition Opening : Saturday, September 1, 2012,  12 to 4pm


 Peter Bauhuis is fascinated with the possibilities of founding. The central series of his work were made in metal founding. The intensive, often innovative engagement with this technique has earned Peter Bauhuis a reputation as modern alchemist. In contrast to wrought works that were forged the actual work in founding pieces lies within a thorough preparation. Technical precision and exact knowledge of the materials used predetermine the later results. However, once the founding has started, there are few possibilities left to correct or influence the outcome.
The experiment with the process of founding and melting different metals together characterises the work of Peter Bauhuis.
He reaches unexpected colours from matt white to a faint greenish yellow up to deep orange and dark red that seem to run into each other with the interplay of oxidising gold, silver and copper. People looking at his works, ask themselves: is this really metal?
He integrates seeming mistakes like fine lines or cracks and technical necessities into his shapes. This gives metal and its strong materiality an incredible lightness. With wit and playful irony he questions the gestures of jewellery and the objects and how we are used to seeing things. EXPO ‘Peter Bauhuis: Cupriavidus Metallidurans’ – Galerie Pilartz, Cologne (DE) – 1er Sept.-13 Oct. 2012 dans Allemagne (DE) g_1pm1528hq
