EXPO ‘Bequeath’ – e.g.etal, Melbourne (AU) – 22 Oct.-3 Nov. 2012

Bequeath – Julia de Ville – at e.g.etal

Rings are a deeply personal form of adornment. Jewellery from the Victorian era, known for its carefully considered embellishment and bold use of gemstones, typifies the potential for beautiful objects to take on significant personal meaning. This is jewellery that traces romantic love and loss, climbing to the heights of devotion and flirting poetically with the depths of despair. …….

Julia deVille: Bequeath - Melbourne Australia exhibitions at e.g.etal... Exhibition dates: Monday 22 October – Saturday 3 November« Julia’s work is characterised by the use of symbols and motifs from past eras. Her precious rings combine found settings from antique jewellery. Over several years, Julia has sourced antique jewellery and gemstones—their original owners long since deceased—waiting patiently for the right combination to form a new creation in her mind and then at her workbench. Through conceptual consideration and traditional and contemporary techniques she appropriates and reconfigures older pieces to form a new design.
Rings are a deeply personal form of adornment. Jewellery from the Victorian era, known for its carefully considered embellishment and bold use of gemstones, typifies the potential for beautiful objects to take on significant personal meaning. This is jewellery that traces romantic love and loss, climbing to the heights of devotion and flirting poetically with the depths of despair. The symmetry and order of the Victorian aesthetic is here transcended in the form of jewellery that combines settings and gems to create something that feels familiar but is post modern and intuitive in its approach to form and colour.
As the title of the exhibition implies, this work is about the potential for life to continue, even as we don’t. Each ring has the appearance of a collection of family heirlooms that have been melted gracefully into one piece. Julia herself says, “I’m constantly in awe of jewellery’s capacity to carry meaning beyond our own lives. For example, my mother is going to be turned into a diamond when she dies and I will make her into a ring for myself. Thus her life, in some form, continues…
This will be Julia’s first solo jewellery exhibition in over five years. In the meantime she has been exhibiting her sculptural taxidermy work. This includes having pieces included in the collection at MONA, as well as her most recent solo exhibition, ‘Sarcophagus’, at Sophie Gannon Gallery in August 2012. »

EXPO ‘Aline Berdichevsky + Isabel Dammermann’ – Amaranto Joies, Barcelona (ES) – 25 Oct.-24 Nov. 2012

Aline Berdichevsky + Isabel Dammermann @ Amaranto Joies
« Nichos
Casas abandonadas colonizadas por aves o seres humanos, ruinas reivindicadas por la naturaleza, las juntas de un adoquín intervenidas por el crecimiento de las raíces de un árbol. Imágenes estáticas que me incitan a preguntarme cuál ha sido el proceso de alteración en cada ambiente.
Espacios imaginados, encontrados, abundantes de intercambio y transformación, dónde busco rellenar vacíos o al menos suavizar las aristas.
Las especies migrantes se trasladan a nuevos espacios donde activamente modifican los ambientes que experimentan, construyendo nuevos nichos.
Un nicho en términos ecológicos es un hipervolumen de n-dimensiones. Las dimensiones incluyen las condiciones ambientales y los recursos que definen las necesidades de los individuos y las especies para vivir.  Se refiere al espacio que ocupan y al papel que juegan los organismos en un ecosistema. Las especies activamente modifican su nicho, construyendo nidos, madrigueras, telarañas, crisálidas.
Al doblar el papel cambio su memoria, creando huellas en un paisaje plano de manera permanente, dibujando nichos.« 
The effect of materials fascinates me. The ambivalence of heaviness and lightness, of permanence and fragility. On this occasion, my requirement to the material is, to educe a special atmosphere, a sentiment. This happens by spontaneity and intuition and the urge for a harmonious balance at whose end an aesthetic work stands which corresponds to my understanding of beauty. The intuition takes the concealed possibilities which lie in the things. It is an attempt to bring things and emotions to the phenomenon that surrounds us all. Nothing is without reverence.
“The Imagination is one of the highest prerogatives of man. By this faculty he unites, independently of the will, former images and ideas, and thus creates brilliant and novel results. …” (Darwin)
Every viewer produces a connection between the piece and his own imagination. Subjective points of view, emphasizes different meaning levels. One sees what one sees – one experiences and feels, a tension between emotions and rationality. It opens a concrete access to reality, even if the first access to the objects is different for every viewer, speculatively and guided from personal experiences. I see in my work a metaphorical view of the world.

Belles rencontres à JOYA 2012 : Niki Stylianou

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),JOYA (ES),Niki STYLIANOU (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:10

Niki Stylianou

« ……. my hands move methodically, producing orderly lines and detailed structures. »

In ‘5 degrees of divergence‘ (the jewelry she presented at JOYA 2012) she tries to map her creative process in groups of five pieces: « each group works as an unfolding narrative ». From one design to another, « the last piece of the group could be completely different from the first one, or could be, in fact, quite similar. »

Niki Stylianou (Greece) with the earrings she made :-)Niki Stylianou wearing her earrings at JOYA Barcelona 2012

« I’m Greek. In ancient Greek language, the word for jewel or adornment is “kosmos”. But “kosmos” also means the actual “making”. It means rhythm and order. The making of an “example”, an “archetype” with a perfect inner architecture. A small world on its own. A “whole”. A “pattern” that could be traced again and again and be embodied in the “cosmos” as we understand it today.
In a way “kosmos” is the act of making “cosmos” visible. And in extension “kosmos” as “adornment” is a second skin, an envelope that makes the body of the wearer appear.
I love challenge. And the biggest challenge for me is the challenge of “making”. Of producing order out of chaos. Through my work I try to redefine “kosmos”  and thus make my “cosmos” and my “reality” materialize. I design adornments using ordinary and overlooked every-day objects. Things that I de-construct and re-arrange in 3-D “puzzles” that clothe the body while speaking of immaterial relationships:
The precious and the non-precious, the beautiful and the ambiguous, the familiar and the unusual, the lasting and the ephemeral, the new and the old. »

hyphainein« hyphainein » – Bust piece, 2012 – recycled plastic, wire, cotton, thread, cotton yarn

« Hyphainein, the word for weaving or plying the loom, literally means “to bring to light”, “to make visible something that was not visible before”. And the word for the product of weaving, the “surface”, is epiphaneia, wich means “manifestation”. An “appearing”.
Also, the Latin word texere, “to weave”, and the word “text”, have the same root. Each text, then, could be seen as a result of woven net of letters, words, ideas, mental images.. And vice versa. Every woven surface, every textile, could be considered as “writing”, a substitude for not being able to speak.
Ann Bergen, in her book Language and the Female, shows that weaving was a form of cryptographic communication for  women in ancient Greece, who lacked a voice. The Greek culture as the writer explains, inherited from the Indo-European tradition a metaphor by which poets and prophets define themselves as “weaving” or “sewing” words.. And call the product of their work a “metaphorical web”. But which then is the literal, the original and which the metaphorical process? Is weaving a figurative speech or is poetry a figurative web?
Weaving as the sign-making activity of women is both literal and metaphorical.
For Ann Bergen, the myth of Tereus, Procne and Philomela provides a good example.
“It testifies to the regular limitation of women to tacit weaving, while exposing the magical power of a silent web to speak…When Tereus, the husband of Procne, rapes her sister Philomela, he cuts out the woman’s tongue to keep her silent, but Philomela, according to Apollodorus (3.14.8), hyphenasa en peploi grammata  “wove pictures/writing (grammata can mean either) in a robe” which she sent to her sister. “
Philomela’s trick underlines the “trickiness” of weaving, and its uncanny ability to make meaning out of inarticulate matter. In this way, women’s weaving and all feminine art that uses textiles, yarn and threads, is a kind of “writing” or graphic art. A communication tool. A material representation of audible immaterial words, ideas, symbols, which “appear”.
In this project, my threads represent Ariadne’s thread. And Philomela’s weaving. They become a cartographic device, estimating distance and proximity, rhythm and pace, movement and rest, bodily scapes. They tell stories which from darkness come to light. »

‘NEW NOMADS’ New Traditional Jewellery 2012

More Info: http://www.newtraditionaljewellery.com

exhibition New Nomads

exhibition New Nomads will be shown during SIERAAD Art Fair, 1 – 4 November 2012, in the Gashouder, WesterGasfabriek, Amsterdam  www.sieraadartfair.com 

For the 2012 design contest and exhibition the professional jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) has chosen the theme ‘NEW NOMADS’, because both literally and figuratively this theme offers many possibilities for inspiration.

NEW TRADITIONAL JEWELLERY, international jewellery design contest - JURY (gauche)NEW TRADITIONAL JEWELLERY, international jewellery design contest - JURY for 'new Nomads' droite

the professional jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) at (hard !) work ….

The history of jewellery is as old as mankind. While people went in search of parts with the best living conditions they carried their valuables with them, wearing them on their bodies. Jewellery that represents economic and social status, as it still does nowadays in the case of nomadic tribes. The dissemination of religions went hand in hand with an unprecedented range of religious jewellery and ornaments, ranging from small containers for religious texts to reliquaries and portable altars.
To this day, jewellery made of stable materials like gold and gems is the guarantee for your ‘ticket home’ in times of crises or when you have to flee from high-risk areas. Due to the global financial crisis prices of this so-called ‘flight gold’ have skyrocketed. Is there an alternative? Nowadays there are quite different streams of migrants but the principle is the same: people in search of parts with better living conditions. The whole world is on the move, from refugees to tourists, from emigrants to employees of multinationals. And you don’t even have to get up from your chair: Skype e.g. has made videoconferencing into a social medium.
NTJ asks contemporary professional jewellery designers to build bridges between the traditional jewellery of e.g. nomads, pilgrims, explorers, globetrotters, refugees or colonists and possible symbols bearers representing the mobility of the ‘NEW NOMADS’. Check the attachments for conditions and criteria.
