"Monochromes"     The not so monotonous jewelry series     A solo exhibition by Shana Teugels
It’s obvious that the work of Shana Teugels revolves around questioning the conventions surrounding jewelry, but more so, she emphasizes the purpose of the classical jewel to an extreme, by adding more shine, more color and increasing volume as she goes.
Her shapes originate from experimenting with different types of materials, which she chooses for their cheap feel. These materials force her to glorify them as she links these experiments to an ongoing research about how the jewel can exalt itself and dance on the fine line between objet d’art and kitsch, the objet d’art being some form of rejected art or better, unclassifiable.
She digests her surroundings, her past and present, pink toys and nature, as well as her personal tastes, in short, the world she, herself, lives in, and out come these molded, shape shifting forms, vibrant of color and life. It’s by forcing her own ideal of beauty onto her audience that she generates a constant push and pull while observing her work. This creates a temporary uncomfortable, but not unpleasant, zone between the spectator/wearer and the work/jewel, itself.
An important aspect remains adding functionality to her creations, most of her objects are wearable, as this is an essential reference to jewelry design in general. Shana Teugels graduated in 2010 at Sint Lucas Antwerp, with a masters degree in jewelry design and did an internship at Galerie Marzee in Nijmegen, Holland. Her work was selected for Der Schmuck Salon at Meesterlijk (Amsterdam) and at Object (Rotterdam), for De Nieuwe Oogst, Galerie Design Vlaanderen (Brussels) as well as FAD at Joya Contemporary Jewelry Week (Barcelona) and as far as Tokyo, Japan with the Belgian Japanese Art Jewelry exhibition at Concept Jewelry Works. Her work was also featured in Current Obsession Magazine, #Youth Edition, a Belgian/Dutch magazine on contemporary jewelry.
"Monochromes" at Anvers 2014
Monochromes shows a series of necklaces, broches and objects, each in a single color. This is quite a daring step, as well as a less obvious one in Shana’s oeuvre, as monochromatism raises a certain doubtful attitude. Similarly to fashion and interior design, where monochromatism is swiftly associated with bad taste or affectation. It’s exactly this idea of taste and (un)accepted beauty, which she is trying to question, while combining less conventional materials, such as wool and plastic, with those that have a fixed value, like polypropyleen.
