EXPO ‘New Territories’ – Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, Athens (GR) – 3 Fevr.–15 Mai 2016

at Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum.

50 GREEK STUDIO JEWELERS UNVEIL THEIR RECENT WORK DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN GREECE

We are pleased to introduce the new temporary exhibition: « New Territories » . The exhibition will be launched on 3rd February at the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum and will show case the recent work of 50 Greek studio jewelry artists currently working in Greece

opening on 3rd February. 19h-22h

New Territories - Athens

The new exhibition at the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum, “New territories”, brings together 50 established and emerging Greek studio jewelry artists presenting unique works show cased for the first time.
Handcrafted in the workshops of the artists, these jewelry objects are the antithesis of commercial high end, fine or jewelry of mass production. These works display a progression from traditional Greek metalsmithing to the use of new techniques and types, straying from the two-dimensional form and materials of the traditional object. They are marked by their direct and close connection to socio-political developments, the world of fashion and international trends in studio jewelry. The exhibition aims to showcase the talent as well as to highlight them as part of a vibrant current in contemporary visual art.
The exhibition illustrates the designers’ boundless imagination as well as the dynamism of a new “industry” associated to international studio jewelry production. New trends in crafts have grown to reply to global competition reflecting current events. Still, history and cultural traditions are very much embedded in the Greek artists’ agenda and the artists have been inspired from ancient Greek mythological heroes to Byzantine religious art and Greek regional costumes from the 17th and 18th centuries. However, evoking a moment in time is just what the artists attempt to show in this exhibition. It is here were we meet some troubled citizens influenced by the current economic unrest exploring a visual representation of catastrophe and then hope. Others seek a more romantic side of contemporary making and address environmental issues, using driftwood and dried flowers. Many of the artists have become involved in teaching classes to mentor the young ones in their own secrets. These experienced artists share with us works that are conceptual but of the highest technical craftsmanship. In the hands of the craftsmen we find that wearable jewelry can become free standing objects and vice versa, leaving the viewer to experience and imagine form and function in three dimensions.
Bridging geographical barriers we find that many of the participants have participated in shows in European countries mainly Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.  Their participation in art fairs and major jewelry shows has brought them experience with current trends and a new know how. But there is still some way until a higher recognition from museum curators and private collectors. After 22 years of presenting innovative temporary exhibitions with decorative arts and promoting studio jewelry in Greece, the ILJM once again attempts to take the initiative to showcase the work of contemporary artists active in Greece and abroad.  For this we have enriched our winter program with lectures by distinguished international guests from museums and galleries, art historians and collectors who will meet with the artists and give lectures to the public. Also in the next few months artists will organize events to better demonstrate their work to experts and the public through lectures, workshops, performances and highlight the educational role of the exhibition.

Selected 4 SCHMUCK 2016 : Ritsuko Ogura

Ritsuko Ogura

Congrats to all the artists who made the SCHMUCK 2016 list, on show at the Handwerksmesse  during #munichjewelleryweek  24/02–1/03/2016

Ritsuko Ogura (Born in Osaka in 1951) uses cardboard to make jewellery, giving new life to a material that is normally used for packaging and then discarded after use. She is attracted to the idea that cardboard does not catch people’s attention as a material in itself, as opposed to Japanese paper that is inherently beautiful, so she is able to give this poor material dignity by transforming it into wearable sculptures. She exploits the difficulty encountered in cutting cardboard to her advantage, using this drawback to create new modes of expression. The finished pieces resemble delicate lace-like structures, with the inclusion of colour in some parts, or simply left the natural brown of the original cardboard used. Ogura has in time mastered this humble material and skilfully creates voluminous pieces to be worn or simply admired. (No-gram)

born in Japan in 1951. After graduation at Tezukayama Women’s College she study jewelry under the leadership of Minato Nakamura. Her work has taken part in exhibitions internationally, and received major awards. Ritsuko’s works are made with cardboard, poor material and intended to discard. With her ability and extraordinary sensitivity in the processing of the surface and the use of color, she creates pieces of high design, to wear or even just to admire.

« Andra Lupu is a contemporary jewelry designer. She has gratuated the University of Arts and Design, Cluj-Napoca, Romania whit a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Design. She is working with metal: silver, gold, copper and brass combined with gemstones, wood and plastic. In 2012, she atended a workshop organized by Lucia Masei, about “Pigments on metal”, at Alchimia , School of contemporary Jewelry, Florence, Italy. She likes experimenting when it comes to her work, considering jewelry a continuous game of different materials, textures and formal contrasts, being mostly intrigued by the interaction between the jewelry and the wearer. « I think I like to create rings because of the dynamic relashionship between the piece itself and the worn surface. I like to watch the audience’ reaction reagarding my creations. It is not the inherent value of the jewelry that I emphasize, rather its capacity of innovation and experiment. » » (Notjustalabel)

« In my new collection, ‘Where are you from?’, I continue working with memories. I tried to show my experience with the political system and social situation from my childhood. Formal kisses between politicians without love, children in political organisations, unified living… this all has left imprints on our personalities. I tried to set traditional ornament, the beauty of a kiss and the cuteness of cookie cutters in contrast to the terrible period and symbols of communism. These jewellery pieces should not be body decorations. They are meant to be a memento, an expression of opinion. »

Congrats to all the artists who made the SCHMUCK 2016 list, on show at the Handwerksmesse  during #munichjewelleryweek  24/02–1/03/2016

« Kazumi Nagano is an artist reaching back to ancient traditions and reinterpreting these in a contemporary form. Her work is still very much influenced by Nihonga, a technique that she studied during her university years. This is a traditional Japanese painting technique involving the use of rock pigments deriving from natural minerals. She makes use of colour as she would in painting, although the techniques to achieve the effect are different. She employs the weaving together of strands of metal such as silver and gold, silk, nylon and Japanese paper thread, to create different colour and texture patterns. The skilful use of this technique gives a refined quality to the pieces. Nagano conveys delicacy to her works by means of creating soft shapes. Interesting and unexpected effects can be produced by making woven material into three-dimensional shapes and by the sequence of colour combination, light and shade. The suppleness of the pieces facilitates interrelation with the human body and makes them all the more appealing to touch. Her pieces are very intuitive and are the result, at times, of a mere feeling. » (Alternatives Gal.)

« Jewellery is for me a way of express myself, as paintings can be for a painter and poems for a poet. My jewels are the answers to the questions I ask me; the pieces of different series are fragments of these answers. ‘Blossfeld’ series is an attempt to analyse natural forms to make visible what usually we do not see. ‘Casitecturas’ series deals with spaces and its memory, while ‘Burbujas’ froze past moments. ‘Geometria 1’ series is a poetical mathematic that questions the relation betwen measures and objects » Silvia Walz

« All through more the 30 years that I have been working professionnally, mainly in painting, and later video and jewelry, I have been narrating sensations, emotions and feelings that are part of the common imaginary. These images, sometimes undefined, calm and upset with the same intensity the spectator wit the intention that he feel and decode freely. Because of these my representations are nearer the lyric and subletness than of the narration, and because of theese, when someone explains me what one of my works sugest to him, he discovers truth that even myself did not know » (Context Gallery)

‘A lo largo de los más de 30 años que llevo profesionalmente trabajando sobre todo en pintura, y más tarde en video y joyería, he ido narrando sensaciones, emociones y sentimientos que forman parte del imaginario colectivo. Estas imágenes, a veces indefinidas, calman e inquietan con la misma intensidad al espectador con la intención de que las sienta y descifre libremente. Por ello mis representaciones están más cerca de la lírica y la sutileza que de la narración, es por ese motivo, que cuando alguien me explica lo que le sugiere una de mis obras, me descubre verdades que ni yo misma sabía. » Fatima Tocornal

1 : 20.000. A solo show by Giulia Savino

 

Alchimia is pleased to present 1 : 20.000, a solo-show by Italian jewelry artist Giulia Savino. This marks the third in a series of solo exhibitions realized by the graduating students of Alchimia’s MFA program 2014/2015, each taking place in a different European city.

Where do we belong to? Can we say that a city belongs to us? If so, then we may have it, like an object, taking it with us wherever we go. We cross the world feeling our identity is in a constant change.
We often observe cities from above, at the height of the clouds, where everything turns into a grid of lines and geometric shapes, looking small and neat, making us believe that we can grab it all and hold it in one hand.
1: 20000 is the manifestation of that instant, that alluring moment in which something enormous is in our hands and we immerse ourselves in the temporary beauty of being in a place we think we own.
1: 20000 is a compendium of maps, a collection of cities in the form of jewels. Just like the map is not the territory but one of the many possible representations of space, each jewel is a personal interpretation of a city that adopts a shape in direct interaction with the body.
1: 20000 is a research on our own identity, complex as mazes of streets, in constant movement as travelers, precious and delicate as jewels.Giulia Savino

« le bijou voyage avec celui qui le porte/ /son socle, c’est le corps« 

« « If we may be so bold: the sharp edge of sensitivity on the one hand, the very subtle construction on the other. All of it in a sort of perpetually threatened emotion. »
JM. H. 1993
« Claire Lavendhomme plays with ‘philosophical’ notions of life by using form in an almost statistical way. Neutral form reveals something subtle, vibrant, poetic, mysterious…” FS. 2014
When is a jewel beautiful, what does it mean?
What is woven within the notion of beauty.
What do aesthetics underlie ?
I think for me, the beautiful, is to say while concealing.
Like a kind of modesty, of veiling.
The search for beauty allows for a questioning which does not require an unequivocal answer.
For my jewelry I like appeal to the senses…to the sensations .
The jewel as vehicle of intimacy, color, poetry, void, sensuality, emotion, link, silence, sensitivity, hatred, love, cries, life, death, speech, laughter, art, … » (Apparat)
