Schmuck 2013 – EXPO ‘Otto Künzli. The Exhibition’ – Die Neue Sammlung, Munich (DE) – 9 Mars-7 Avril 2013

Otto Künzli. The Exhibition

Die Neue SammlungThe International Design Museum Munich

Otto Kunzli  

Born 1948 in Zurich, Switzerland, Otto Künzli is widely considered to be “one of the most intelligent makers in the jewelry world and also one of the most sceptical.” (Ralph Turner).
He has revolutionized modern jewelry art. In the 45-odd years in which he has been addressing the topic of jewelry, Otto Künzli has carved out for himself a quite unique position of far-reaching international influence not only as an artist and a pioneer, but also as an author and mentor. Otto Künzli’s works are based on complex reflection, conceptual and visual imagination. The result: objects with a clear, minimalist appearance, captivatingly crafted to perfection, and highly visible – jewelry that adorns and at the same time possesses an autonomous aesthetic status of its own.
The exhibition of Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich –  will premier in the Schaustelle of Pinakothek der Moderne, and is being realized in close cooperation with the artist. It includes around 150-200 objects and groups of objects from the artist’s various creative phases. This not only includes the jewelry items but also interdisciplinary conceptual works in the areas of photography and installation. By looking back, providing future perspectives and considering where jewelry stands today, the exhibition is essentially the first retrospective of Otto Künzli’s highly diverse work.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a comprehensive monograph. Ed. Florian Hufnagl, Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich. With contributions by Jacqueline Burckhardt, senior editor Parkett, Zurich/New York, Prof. Walter Grasskamp, Academy of Fine Arts Munich, Dr. Pravu Matzumdar, philosopher, among others. Ca. 680 pages. German edition / English edition. Arnoldsche Art Publishers. Design: Frederik Linke.
Further exhibition stops are planned, including the MUDAC Musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains, Lausanne (2014); Metropolitan Teien Art Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (2015).

Schmuck 2013 – EXPO ‘Lahti Schmuck’ – 84 GHz, Munich (DE) – 8-10 Mars 2013

Lahti Schmuck
Lahti has over 100 000 residents making it the eighth largest city in Finland. Lahtis location in the heart of Southern Finland, along a busy railway line and at the junction of several highways is superb.
Lahti with its surroundings forms an interesting unity. The surrounding nature and the city’s architecture create contrasts that work as a source of inspiration for artistic work. Lahti is traditionally considered a meeting point for different cultures. What jewellery did the artists create? How a jewellery artist views Lahti city ? Significant European and American artists participated in the project. The results will be seen at 84GHz during Schmuck 2013.

Bety K. Majerníková was one of the most outstanding performers of the young Slovak jewelry generation that came on the scene since 2000. Her uniqueness was in her specific spontaneous art language which changed according to the topic that she worked with, the selection and processing of the materials that she used, in what she expressed through her jewelry, and also according to the way that she was able to present it to the public. Sometimes very striking, open and funny and a minute later meditative, inquiring, mysterious and fragile. She could always surprise and was able to grow. Her small intense compositions were her personal commentary about the world around, but also about herself. Her solitary pieces excelled by very delicate soft form, progressive plastic material as well as by a special transparency through which they exposed their interior. And always by a small detail that sparkles them.

Bety studied by prof. Karol Weisslechner at the University of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava in the Metal and Jewellery Studio. In addition, she completed study visits in the glasswork studio at the University of Sunderland (UK) and also a study of jewelry and cutting gemstones at FH Idar-Oberstein (D). After graduating, she worked as an assistant in the Metal and Jewellery Studio, and in 2007 she earned a doctorate (as the first among women jewelers) for work dealing with the origin of artwork in a global society. Bety K. Majerníková established gallery Nuée, co-organized Schmuck Wander and Šperk Stret. She was a singer in group Noisecut. She exhibited her works in Slovakia as well as abroad and holds several prices (Kruhy na vode 2005, Designblok 2008).

Schmuck 2013 – EXPO ‘BUCKS ‘N BARTER’ – Galerie Kullukcu, Munich (DE) – 7-9 Mars 2013

BUCKS ‘N BARTER

vernissage  Thu 7/03/2013, 17:30-21:00

Welcome to Bucks ‘n Barter, the showcase for objects and work pieces of 9 international artists in a conversation of values and currency, material culture, symbols, barter and exchange in terms of economics. Simultaneously, take pleasure in event-specific cocktails backed by The Duke, Fritz Müller, and Aqua Monaco on the vernissage.

during SCHMUCK : Bucks 'N Barter The exhibition features works from 9 international artists active in the fields of jewelry, art, craft, product and experience design, with site specific installations, newly commissioned works and a selection of thought-provoking pieces, all together investigating a complex and multifaceted topic, that of the human tendency to trade and exchange and how this has shaped not only the society we live in but also the way we perceive and relate to things and materials.
Key themes touched upon are value and currency, material culture, barter and exchange in terms of  economics, symbols, knowledge and cultures; the relationship between the market and the applied arts, between physical and virtual.
Bucks ‘N Barter is a project initiated by Beatrice Brovia, Nicolas Cheng, Friederike Daumiller and Katrin Spranger.

Schmuck 2013 – EXPO ‘Tanel Veenre : My Kingdom’ – The Foundry, Munich (DE) – 8-10 Mars 2013

« Tanel Veenre : My Kingdom »

during SCHMUCK : " Tanel Veenre: My Kingdom "Munich Germany

« A beautiful piece of jewellery is exciting. Excitement is a quality that comes into being upon collapse of the quantifiable and measurable into the inexplicable and personal. Fleeing from gold-edged emptiness binds the artist’s soul with the thing being created. It’s all somehow wordlessly conspiratorial. Artist and jewellery become witnesses to a crime in which they are both complicit.
Anxiety may contain embarrassment and brazenness, mockery levelled at the opinion of the court. « 
« A talented jeweller says: The quality of the jewel is in its intellectuality. For an artist the jewel is something very personal through which he can express his concerns, feelings, ideas.

Veenre likes to combine metal with such a natural details like rope or coal (back to the Stone Age?). He makes historical collars out of shining fish-scales, which he strings together with little glass beads. As a result his work looks very fine with its dynamics, femininity and grace. It is experimental and theatrical, there is a fine sense of drama inside. «  Tanel Veenre  Brooch: Featherlight Heart 2013  Wood, bone, plastic, white gold, silver Tanel Veenre  Brooch: Featherlight Heart 2013  Wood, bone, plastic, white gold, silver

Schmuck 2013 – EXPO ‘Matadero’ – Cafe Clara, Munich (DE) – 6-12 Mars 2013

during SCHMUCK :  exhibition « MATADERO » by WALKA STUDIO (Claudia Betancourt + Nano Pulgar)

The MATADERO series, reflects on matters such as death, the relation between body and ornament, the primal origin of corporal ornament and its sacred meaning, associated to the cultures from Latin America and the Pacific Basin.

during SCHMUCK :  exhibition "MATADERO" by WALKA STUDIO (claudia betancourt + nano pulgar)    The MATADERO series, reflects on matters such as death, the relation between body and ornament, the primal origin of corporal ornament and its sacred meaning, associated to the cultures from Latin America and the Pacific Basin.    Place: Cafe Clara, Isabellastraße 8, 80798 München  Dates: March 6th - 12 th. Monday Closed  Opening hours: 11-19 hrs  http://www.walka.cl/proyectos-arte/

« Walka Studio represents duality in all the sense of the word. Claudia Betancourt, intuitive, emotional and profoundly interested in local crafting traditions, and Nano Pulgar, shrewd, rational and highly experimental stand at opposite ends of the spectrum of the creative process. Together they execute a fluid dance which teases the boundaries between art and design. They have a clear notion of the local and a wide, but critical, view of the foreign. And they often engage in clever actions to create a larger and more inclusive audience, intervening public realm and partnering with amicable spaces not traditionally associated to the exhibition of artistic jewellery.
On this occasion, Walka Studio, Cafe Clara and Otro Diseño, bring a Chilean exhibition to Munich, to be one of the many relevant satellite events that surround Schmuck adding true cultural diversity to this international event.
Matadero is the latest collection of the Walka duo. It contains a very specific narrative about Chilean traditional crafting materials, the historical and cultural nexus of the southern cultures of the Pacific Basin and the evolving influence of the conquest of Chile, initiated by the Spaniards in 1541. This narrative, however, is represented in an international language, allowing jewellers and jewellery enthusiasts of all nationalities to understand how this jewellery from across the ocean functions within a mostly western context.
Matadero is a series of necklaces and pendants, jewel categories that step away from the often resorted to European brooch and allude to the prevailing ornament of the Pacific cultures. The series is the product of a long investigation about the symbolical and aesthetic characteristics of body ornamentation in the Pacific Basin until its evolution into contemporary jewellery; as well as the experimentation with new methods to work the cacho de buey or bull’s horn, a traditional material in Chilean craft that has been worked by Betancourt’s family for generations.
The relationship established between body and ornament in Matadero reveals how social custom and stigmas around the subject of death or murder of animals, affect our capacity to deem animal remains as acceptable materials, thus disregarding the origin of body ornamentation and the sacred connotations associated with it in the cultures of the Pacific Islands (Polynesia) and Latin America.
Matadero uses both bull´s horns and hooves which had been part of a previous collection dedicated to the fashion industry, delicately tinted in a faint pink colour for that occasion. The fashionable neckpieces have been deconstructed, burnt and rebuilt as entirely new pieces that fascinate and repulse. The newly transformed pieces allude to one of the darkest periods in Chilean history: the 17 year long dictatorship that was common to many other Latin American countries and which is still a source of preoccupation and reflection for many artists from the continent.
The necklaces and pendants in this exhibition also allude to the particular geographical situation of Chile, a long, thin strip in Latin America which is wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes mountain range. Every piece in the series uses soft, comforting supports and laces made of Andean Alpacas. Surprisingly, the pieces are extremely easy and comfortable to wear, once the repulsion produced by the idea of wearing burnt bones has passed. They are soft, light and smoothing. They are made to be used, as that is how they complete their cycle. And they show Walka’s regal acquaintance with fashion and wearability.
Matadero becomes now a synonym for duality: the series blends cultures, materials, processes, meanings and historical periods in an unusual but profoundly skilful way. I am certain that this exhibition will promote an interesting dialogue and exchange among the participants of Schmuck« .  Valeria Siemelink
