‘CONTAINERS in context’ – Anneleen Swillen

Beyond Fashion‎Solo Expo / CONTAINERS IN CONTEXT by Anneleen Swillen (BE)

Anneleen Swillen is inspired by the way daily goods are consumed and (re)presented. The jewellery pieces from ‘CONTAINERS in context’ are inspired by the interesting but unnoticed design from disposable packaging. Challenged by this ambivalence, between waste and its aesthetic potential, her designs and materials play with the notion of precious and worthless. The use of contrasts and metaphors is a recurrent feature in realizing her concepts. The origin from the ‘in context’ collection will be less clear; the playful designs dispose of a more autonomous shape.
During the making process Anneleen explores the possibilities of a material or product. Thereby she drops their original function and exchanges it for her own personal application. By doing so she gives a new point of view about our relationship with material goods. Through production and reproduction she investigates the industrially manufactured and its potential applications in craft. The repetitive making process, which refers to the mechanized production of goods, offers the opportunity to produce series of work as well as to make unique pieces.

DECOUVERTE : Karen Elizabeth Donovan – titanium from the Highlands

Karen Elizabeth Donovan, Edinburgh College of Art, MA Distinction (june 2014), masterfully moves that hardest of metals titanium to create exquisite filigree-like necklaces bracelets and Highland Clan brooches gently tinted in blues, greens and golds. Scotland’s rich social history, its flora, and the materiality of titanium are her inspiration: “Plants define the character of a Nation or place. In Vermont, where I was born, we define ourselves by the Maple Tree. In Scotland we are often defined by the Thistle…..Titanium has a certain feel to it; a noise it makes when I brush my hand across it, and a smell it creates when I pierce, file and sand it. It is lightweight, strong, durable, and springy. It presents challenges to overcome and work around. It is sensual and it is home.
