EXPO ‘From Chaos to Comprehension’ – Danish Arts and Crafts Association, Copenhagen (DK) – 7-30 Juin 2013

The exhibition From Chaos to Comprehension  shows the work of 7 contemporary Jewellery artists from Denmark/Germany, Thailand, the UK, China and Taiwan. All graduated from the MA ‘Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products’ at Birmingham City University, UK in 2011 and 2012. And all experienced the turbulent, but rewarding process, of studying for an MA; which led them from a state of chaos to comprehending their work, its’ prerequisites and processes.

From Chaos to Comprehension opens on Friday June 7th 2013 in the exhibition room of the Danish Arts and Crafts Association in Bredgade 66 in Copenhagen and runs till June 30th.

"FROM CHAOS TO COMPREHENSION", Copenhagen, Denmark.

The jewellers are:  Panjapol KulpapangkornNanna GrønborgFliss Quick Hannah Fewtrell-BoltonEmily Bullock — Xiaohan-Ren — I-Ting Ho.

Curating the exhibition in Copenhagen, Nanna Grnborg formed this collective of fellow artists to exhibit the individual results of their studies. The work shown is the outcome of an ongoing struggle in which chaotic situations in the working process are followed by comprehension, which in turn fosters new questions. All of the artists share the belief that study was an important step and a base for future work. What connects them, is a striving for good solutions to their individual concepts.
The concepts and work are as different as their makers, and they reflect various perspectives on Jewellery in the context of society and personal experience:
Panjapol Kulpapangkorns work is a result of recorded and collected memories sent to him from participants around the world, including film, sound, photographs and found objects. His work evolves around memory as a very personal and individual experience, which we also wear in the mind.
Nanna Gronborg is influenced by the fusion of cultures and the contradictions between the rational and the intuitive. Her work balances this with subtle irony, while relying on theoretical tools like semiotics and the science of perception to reflect on it.   
Fliss Quick works as a narrator conjuring protagonists and their consequent environments or scenarios to build a vocabulary of making to evoke stories.
Hannah Fewtrell- Bolton is very excited by fashion: The way it enables the wearer to express their personality and style every day without ever having to speak a single word fascinates her. She is interested in making a statement and causing a reaction.
Xiaohan-Rens collection is about capturing the vestiges of memory and creating artefacts that allude to moments in time. His sketchbooks are the inspiration behind the jewellery.
Emily Bullock is initially inspired by a location; a country, a city, a house. The jewellery she creates transforms aspects of these locations into 3D representations. Each composition is abstract and personal to how she has interpreted the setting and scenery.
I-Ting Ho focuses on human skin in her work. Skin Secret, the title of her project, is about the ԓid and the ԓego. She researches the use of products and other ways to beautify the skin in order to create a differently perceived identity.
Thereafter From Chaos to Comprehension travels from its first opening at Officinet in Copenhagen to Gallery ATTA in Bangkok, Thailand from August 14th to September 28th 2014.

EXPO ‘Gioielloinarte – Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt’ – Univesità e Nobil Collegio degli Orefici, Roma (IT) – 25 mai-5 juin 2013

Gioielloinarte – Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt

 Gioielloinarte - Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt- 25 mai-5 juin - Roma

Gioielloinarte – In mostra 113 gioielli unici di artisti italiani e stranieriche interpretano “Il preziosismo pittorico di Kustav Klimt”

“Il tema è sicuramente affascinante e ricco di spunti e il riscontro che ne abbiamo avuto per numero di iscrizioni lo ha ampiamente confermato”. Così dichiara la propria soddisfazione Corrado di Giacomo, Console Camerlengo dell’Università e Nobil Collegio degli Orefici, Gioiellieri, Argentieri dell’Alma Città di Roma organizzatrice del concorso gioielloinarte, bandito a inizio 2012 e che vede ora il suo completamento nella mostra dei gioielli selezionati. “Abbiamo scelto come ispirazione ‘Il preziosismo pittorico di Gustav Klimt’ nel 150° anniversario della nascita del grande artista, figlio di un orafo,” spiega il Primo Console Piero de Stefano “che ha saputo analizzare e interpretare lo spirito inquieto del proprio tempo e che, partito da una formazione tradizionale, divenne uno dei massimi esponenti della secessione viennese”.

L’inaugurazione e la premiazione dei vincitori del concorso sono in programma per venerdì 24 Maggio alle ore 19 presso la sede del Nobil Collegio in via S. Eligio 7 e la mostra rimarrà poi aperta, con ingresso libero, dal 25 maggio al 5 giugno.

Nelle due sezioni “gioiello tradizionale” e “gioiello contemporaneo” saranno presentate 113 delle 179 creazioni di artisti provenienti da Argentina (1), Austria (3), Brasile (1), Florida (1), Francia (1), Germania (9), Giappone (1), Gran Bretagna (1), Israele (2), Italia (150), Corea (2), Olanda (1), Serbia (2), Slovenia (3), Svezia (1). La selezione dei progetti iscritti è stata affidata a una Giuria presieduta dal Console Camerlengo Corrado di Giacomo e composta da: Donatella Fici, responsabile dello sviluppo prodotto della Jewellery Business Unit di Bulgari; Micol Forti, direttrice del settore contemporaneo dei Musei Vaticani; Anna Mattirolo, direttrice del MAXXI Arte di Roma; Laura Maria Vittoria Vallero, direttrice vendite Italia della Tiffany & Co.

La sezione”gioiello tradizionale” vede la presenza di 42 gioielli che privilegiano l’utilizzo di metalli preziosi e gemme naturali con limitato uso di materiali diversi, mentre nella sezione “gioiello contemporaneo” sono esposti 71 creazioni che utilizzano materiali preziosi in abbinamento a svariati materiali.

« Borders separate but also unite » (Octavio Paz)
Historically the relationship between Mexico and the United States has been complicated, deep, and conflicted. Due to geography, this relationship is unavoidable and comprised of many underlying currents: economic, political, social, cultural, ecologic and ideological.
La Frontera (The Borderlands) is the physical space where the relationship between Mexico and the U.S is most evident. In recent years, drug trafficking and violence have made it the focus of almost daily news. However, the extremely porous nature of the border allows not only the illegal passage of arms and drugs, but also ideas, money, projects, families, and culture.
The border is an environment of opportunity both legal and not. Nearly 2000 miles long, the U.S. – Mexico border is the most frequently crossed international border in the world. Companies use differences in labor and environmental regulations to their advantage and create discontent on both sides of the border. Since the 1980s economic and political refugees from Central America have swelled populations at the border and migrations across it. The construction of the 700- mile U.S. – Mexico Border Fence of the past several years is the most tangible symbol of failed politics.
The exhibition LA FRONTERA seeks to explore this physical space and what it represents. This is why we want artists either born in either of these countries or who live in either of these countries to express how they understand the border.

 Jorge Castañón - "Hacia dónde va tu Sangre ? " -   'LA FRONTERA' exhibition -   Algunas veces queremos cruzarlas, otras , necesitamos cruzarlas, buscando recomenzar, renacer, una segunda oportunidad posiblemente.  Tal vez nuestros cuerpos puedan lograrlo, pero … qué será de nuestro corazón, nos acompañará?  Qué buscamos y qué dejamos, dos ideas de signos opuestos que nunca se igualan.  Nace una herida, que eternamente intentaremos que cicatrice.Jorge Castañón – « Hacia dónde va tu Sangre ?  »

Jose Marin: Spotlight  – Mobilia Gallery

Jose Marin is a talented metalsmith from Spain; he chooses to work in titanium, the element discovered in Cornwall, England and named after the Titans of Greek mythology. He incorporates precious and semi-precious stones set in an element that is extremely difficult to work with. Marin is intrigued with the fact that titanium is found in almost all living things: water, soils and rocks.

« When I choose a material it is always with the idea of transforming it into a magical object. At this time I have opted for Titanium, a unique metal. Its hardness and toughness brings the challenge of making jewels by hand. Inspired by botanicals, and combining Titanium with gold, silver and semi-precious stones, I enjoy exploring new directions for contemporary jewelry with all the colors that nature provides. »Jose Marin

EXPO ‘Windswept’ – The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh (UK) – 5-29 Juin 2013

Windswept - Heather Woof

05 Jun 2013 – 29 Jun 2013

Heather Woof is a recent graduate from Edinburgh College of art.

Heather’s current ‘windswept’ collection has been inspired by the wild Scottish weather and is reminiscent of the powerful natural forces which shape the landscape around us. Working with hand cut titanium and mild steel the artist aims to evoke a sense of dynamism in these otherwise static materials. She tries to capture a sense of fluid movement in hard and unyielding metal, to create sculptural pieces, which appear to have been quite literally blown over by the wind.

Coup de Coeur : Apawan Kultawanich, the beauty of translucency

Apawan Kultawanich (Thailand) takes a familiar object and transforms it, exploring « the beauty of translucency. »

«   The inspiration of my work comes from material experimentation. Plastic drinking straws is ready-made object that is overlooked its high potential properties. What made an object valuable? Through the research and experiment, Plastic drinking straws is transformed into material for jewellery. Translucency and optical effect are the outstanding characteristics of plastic drinking straws which are utilized as theme in my project.  The surprising biomorphic feature of melted plastic straws inspires the simplified organic shape of work pieces. I aim to capture a timeless delightful sense that is similar to the one we receive from natural object. Furthermore, the natural sense enhances tactile qualities illustrated through delicate and dynamic patterns and forms. My work explores the beauty of translucency through the plastic drinking straws, and challenges perception of material value in jewellery. The plastic drinking straw is transformed by experimental processes so as to bring out its aesthetic value. My work is a combination of optical effect, translucency and natural shape which result in an eye-catching delicate craft work. The optical effect in my work will change depending on the light and background behind the pieces when it set on the body. »

Primera Muestra en Argentina de Laca Japonesa aplicada a la Joyería Contemporánea

Museo de la Mujer, Buenos Aires
Inauguración: Viernes 31 de Mayo. 19:00 horas. Entrada libre y gratuita
31 Mai : laca japonesa aplicada a la joyeria contemporanea

Esta exposición difundirá el trabajo del taller de Francine Schloeth  -artista plástica suiza- y de alrededor de 30 alumnos provenientes de distintas profesiones,  aunque predominan la joyería y la restauración.

“LAS EMOCIONES” (amor, alegría y placer, miedo, ira y tristeza) fue el eje temático elegido para la selección de las maravillosas piezas a exponer en esta ocasión.

Es una oportunidad única para ver en conjunto trabajos artísticos con laca japonesa, una técnica milenaria, que necesita mucho tiempo, dedicación y paciencia debido a las particulares características de temperatura y humedad que requiere su secado y a que su brillo único y profundo se logra con la aplicación de numerosas capas.

EXPO ‘Réka Fekete : Balance’ – Galerie Ra, Amsterdam (NL) – 25 Mai-10 Juill. 2013

Réka Fekete : Balance      

Réka Fekete: Balance    Artists: Réka Fekete  Management: Paul Derrez  Place: Galerie Ra  (Amsterdam, Netherlands)  25-May-2013 - 10-Jul-2013    website: www.galerie-ra.nl(Réka Fekete, Satellite#1151, brooch, 2012, steel, silver)

‘In the Balance collection I draw with the material and explore connections: I look at how each individual component can be coupled to the next link. This creates different spontaneous compositions and creations mainly in steel and coloured wood which are linked together by silver rivets. The components can be juxtaposed with each other in different ways, thereby finding a new sense of balance. This dynamic adds character to the pieces, just like the bright colours and the irregular organic forms do. To touch and explore the various possibilities of movement is to engage in contact, a form of introduction between the onlooker and the jewellery, in order to be fellow companions ultimately.’  Réka Fekete

interview by AJF Blog :
« Why is your show called Balance?
Réka Fekete: « As well as in my previous series, I am experimenting with movement within these pieces. Movement stands for personality, for the ever-changing quality of life, and for the freedom in it. The way I connect the elements gets special attention this time. The connection itself becomes so prominent that it appears to be the main element. Other times, the elements fit into each other and are hammered together so an extra connecting element is no longer needed. Within the construction of each piece there is a lot of mobility and different ways of wearing it. This mobility also expresses how I am in my life. At any moment I might change my mind and take a new path in order to maintain my balance, which I think is one of the most fundamental aspects of life. No matter how much you reduce and consolidate as long as the components of each side remain in balance you will be fine. I see the act of preserving this balance as an exchange. It is simply the way we live and just like the different kinds of relationships that exist between people. »
How does this new work differ from the work you were doing last year?
Réka Fekete:  » I am drawing a lot, and I felt the need to integrate it into my three-dimensional work. While putting the pieces together, I felt like I was drawing. There are black lines of steel connecting colored surfaces of wood or laminate. White wooden parts get blackened little by little as the steel rubs up against it. It ends up looking like charcoal on paper.
For my installation at Galerie Ra, I added some drawings on the wall as well. I wanted the wall to be more than an object upon which the pieces are presented. Acting like a huge piece of paper, the wall becomes part of the work, connecting the pieces and bridging the surfaces and the jewelry. In this series of work, I began to paint on the wood with my fingers instead of spraying each piece with one color. This process allowed me to discover a very liberating way of interacting with my materials. I think I was able to bring similar effects to the wall of the gallery. Overall, this new body of work has evolved graphically, especially within the shadows where the linearity of the steel is constantly reflected. »
