« For centuries artists have tried to define the human form by using circles, squares, planes and lines. Da Vinci’s Vetruvius Man or Rietveld’s chairs are known the world over. But the body defies such abstractions, it rather should be looked at as an alternating landscape with sloping transitions and undulating contours determined by the muscles. It is only when a designer explicitly intends to follow or support the body, that other shapes emerge. Clothes or corsets are clear examples, as are the wooden leg brace and fiberglass armchair shell designed by the Eames. It is at such occasions that Katja Prins starts to pay attention: when objects aren’t just beautiful, but also testify to exploration, functionality and adventure.
To prepare for her new collection of jewellery Prins looked for ways to translate visual associations connected with the human body to a smaller size. Using an artificial material produced for medical purposes, she managed to develop three dimentional shapes that are expressive, without becoming to obvious. They were supplemented with abstract elements, hammered from brass and subsequently polished and chomium-plated.
Prins isn’t only fascinated by shapes related to the human frame, but also by the fact that nowadays man can actually intervene in the body. And so she incorporated fragments of medical instruments into her new work. In this way she made jewellery pieces that celebrate an often neglected beauty of the body, in relation with the efforts people make for its perpetuation.
Does Prins jewellery result in merely sweeted temptations? Confronted with the work, most people initially are reserved: the cool, shiny chomium and a reminder of doctors implements create a distance. Yet, instead of suspicion, a different reaction would be more appropiate: astonishment about ourselves and our many, sometimes puzzling accomplishments.  » (Ward Schrijver, art historian and architect, Amsterdam, NL)

« I am a Contemporary Jeweller from New Zealand. My work is dream inspired fantasy with elements taken from nature.
I am in my fourth year of study, I also work part time tutoring jewellery techniques and practical skills »

« My work primarily focuses on form and placement on the body. I enjoy the play on contrasts within my work. By using industrial materials to create an organic flow and femininity of form from a male dominated resource I arouse the curiosities and give my jewellery a touch of playfulness. »

BIJOUX with a HOLE ….

un trou …. pas juste un trou, mais une cassure, une brisure, une faille, un « défaut », une « petite destruction », une blessure, un manque, un « manqué » …

Mais aussi une ouverture, une fenêtre …. vers un ailleurs, vers un « regard sur soi », vers une introspection, vers ce qu’on a (d’)enfermé et qu’on laisse (enfin) sortir/voir/respirer/s’épancher ….

Comme le dit Joo Hyung Park, « Beauty (is) in Imperfection » ….. Même discourspour Brooke Marks-Swanson : « « I am drawn to the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. …..  My object is to cause the viewer to speculate, imagine and to investigate… »
