Disturbare la Geometria by Jürgen Eickhoff

Galerie V&V

Opening: 24January 11am – 5pm

  »In the widest sense this jewelry is a work about networks, which are able to repair and change themselves. »
 Jurgen .... Disturbare la geometria
The works of „disturbare la geometria“ (disturbing the geometry) deals with order, disturbing the order and the reorganisation of it. A disturbance means trouble for the established order, but at the same time it is also the very begin of a change. Through disturbance, the old, existing order will be adapted to new realities; it changes the inner qualities as well as the exterior.

Students of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

 

‘FOR EACH A BRACELET’

As a sequel to ‘Ring for the Lords’ (Walter Van Beirendonck and Marnick Smessaert), ‘Jewels for the Ladies’ (Marjan Unger and Anita Evenepoel), ‘Brooches para las Chicas’ (Chequita Nahar and Valeria Vallarta Siemelink), ‘Mary Ted Noten’  (Ted Noten and Clemence-Marie van Lieshout), this year ‘For Each a Bracelet’ was the 5th edition of an ongoing jewellery project by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. Students of the Bachelor course at the Jewellery Design & Silversmithing department were asked to design bracelets for Paul Derrez and Willem Hoogstede. (Gallery RA Amsterdam)

The consideration to give this assignment was mainly motivated by the minimal offer of contemporary styled bracelets. As an additional difficulty Paul & Willem operated as a condition that both bracelets had to differ from each other but still had to look like a ‘couple’.
After an exciting and instructive glimpse into their private collection our students had to get started with their different approaches as result.

Participants:  Jade Houben — Vie Stessens — Theresa Storbacka — Arne Van De Mierop — Emilie Putteman — Sophia De Groot — Anneleen De Vree — Caroline Du Chastel — Jil Jander — Linda Janssen — Camille Pennequin — Viktoria von Mallotki — Xinyuan Hu –Ying Chen — Dabin Lee — Caroline Geerardyn — Yijun Liu — Orsolya Losonczy — Josefine Mass — Vincent Verstrepen — Shahrzad Motallebi — Annika Wirken

AJF ANNOUNCES FINALISTS FOR 2016 ARTIST AWARD

From the Five Finalists Shortlisted for International Prize
(Lynn Batchelder –  Carina Shoshtary — Seth Papac — Aric Verrastro — and Timothy Veske-McMahon)
Finalists were chosen from the largest group of Artist Award applicants to date–151 artists representing 35 countries–and judged on originality, depth of concept, continuity of design, and quality of craftsmanship. This year’s jurors were Philip Clarke of New Zealand, inaugural director of Objectspace; 2014 Artist Award winner Seulgi Kwon, from South Korea; and AJF board member and collector Susan Kempin, who is from the United States.
  The unrestricted cash prize of $7500, generously funded by Susan Beech and Karen and Michael Rotenberg, will be awarded to one of the five finalists. AJF would like to thank Sofia Björkman and PLATINA for providing a showcase for the winner and finalist during Schmuck and donating the gallery’s profits to AJF. 
AJF 2016 award
Batchelder was chosen from a record number of applicants—151 entries from 35 countries. She will receive a US$7500 cash award, and her work, along with that of the four finalists, will be exhibited by Platina Gallery at Schmuck international art jewelry fair in Munich, February 24 through March 1. Batchelder will also receive the benefits of being a supporter of AJF and serve as a juror for the 2017 Artist Award competition.
Batchelder’s studio practice relies on a drawing process where forms and ideas develop intuitively through the initial exploration of a line on paper. Industrial steel becomes transparent and delicate as cuts made with the jeweler’s saw reflect the quality of a line drawn by hand. Batchelder strives to capture small moments of contrast where control and imperfection collide.
Impressed by Batchelder’s work, Philip Clarke described it as “[a]ppearing almost mechanically made at a distant glance … the character of the human hand and frailty is evident. I found that the maker was able to explore a range of ideas within the quite formal framework that they had created.” Seulgi Kwon reflected on the pieces having “exceptional structural and sculptural beauty. They are designed to deliver strong feeling and a simple message through the natural color of metal itself.” Susan Kempin added, “I love the clean lines, the simplicity and yet the complexity of the pieces … to me there is only perfection here.”
Batchelder earned a master’s of fine arts in metal from State University of New York at New Paltz, New York, USA, in 2013.

During SCHMUCK : EXPO ‘Unbearable Lightnesses’ – 84GHz, Munich (DE) – 26-28 Fevr. 2016

Unbearable Lightness

a solo show by Federica Sala

Alchimia is proud to say that “Unbearable Lightnesses” by recent graduate Federica Sala will be on view during the Schmuck Jewellery Week 2016, an exhibition featuring her Alchimia MFA collection “True Lies. A collection of Oxymorons”, together with new pieces realized for the occasion

 Opening 26.02 from 18:00 to 22:00

Unbearable Lightnesses

Imagine to wake up and to see everything different than what you knew. The appearance of the surroundings is exactly the same, but no more the feeling of it. Everything becomes suddenly worthless but meaningful, raising an awareness of a reality fragile and heavy at the same time. There’s a new and indefinable tension between certain and uncertain. It’s a thrill that brings you on the brink of a precipice over nothing and everything. Take your time to stay suspended in this pure and perfect balance. Keep as long as possible this vertigo feeling with you to magnify your experience of life. Welcome to the world of the Unbearable Lightnesses.

There’s a reality to discover, in which everything is possible and looks exactly the opposite of what we know. Our superficial perception is building a world of illusions in which appearance has become the only truth. I want to raise doubts, creating pieces that defy the laws of Reality and seem to belong to another possible world. All the uncertainties are turned into delicate jewellery pieces that once on the body draw the wearer’s attention, sharing their fragility with the reality we’re living. My pieces want to make people change their perspective, generating a much more gentle and sensitive perception of themselves and of the surroundings as a consequence. Federica Sala

True Lies. A Collection of Oxymorons wants to question our perception of reality, inspired by Plato’s thoughts on how “reality is just a defective projection of our limited way of perceiving”*. Strong in look but extremely fragile in essence, the jewellery pieces encourage us to reflect about the inextricable co-dependency of opposites, and of how our existence might be determined by the limits we set for ourselves. Glass and stone become one entity growing from each other via a new and experimental technique developed by the artist in years of research on the island of Murano, world-famous for its artisanal glass production.
True Lies are impossible structures that point us towards the fragility of the reality we know, by sharing with us just one of the possible variations of it.
Federica Sala is one of the significant figures of a rising generation of Italian jewellery artists. Her practice is based on a continuous experimentation on the properties and qualities of materials, with a particular interest in glass and organic forms, grounded in a strong theoretical research. With this new collection Federica Sala introduced a unique approach in combining different materials such as metal, glass and gemstones. One of its pieces was nominated for the prestigious Stanislav Libenský Award. (Alchimia blog)

Federica Sala (b. 1986 Italy, lives and works in Milan) holds an MFA in Contemporary Jewellery and Body Ornament from Alchimia in Florence (2015) tutored by the Mexican jewellery artist Jorge Manilla, and a MA in Fashion Design from the Politecnico in Milan (2011) tutored by the Italian anthropologist Eleonora Fiorani and the Italian artist Giorgio Vigna. While studying in Alchimia she was mentored by International artists as Peter Bauhuis and Ruudt Peters. Her work is deeply based on a scientific approach to materials that she manipulates to create new delicate jewellery sculptures that due to their fragility capture all the attention and sensibility of the wearer.  From 2010 to 2012 she has been the assistant of Giorgio Vigna with whom she kept on studying glass and its properties, travelling to Murano to learn new techniques.  Her recent Master Project “True Lies. A collection of Oxymorons” has been nominated for the Stanislav Libensky Award 2015 with an exhibition at the Glass Museum in Prague.

Fabrizio Tridenti represents a sculpturally oriented aesthetic language in jewellery. Looking
for inspiration in industrial and technological surroundings his work demonstrates a complex combination of the typical mediterranean consciousness of antique history and presence with modern times and contemporary necessities.

Annea Lounatvuori is a jewellery designer currently living and working in Berlin and a 2015 Jewellery Design graduate from the Lahti University of Applied Sciences. In addition to running her brand PONY Jewelry for the past four years, she has worked together with institutions and organisations and sees her work as jewellery designer very widely. Her passion lies in visual arts and music. She likes to observe daily life but is also curious about escaping from it.
Annea Lounatvuori`s first solo exhibition in the gallery Vernon is a continuation of her work from the 2015 collaborative exhibition Time Perception. In Time Perception Vol.II she will be getting deeper and closer to her passion of working with horse hair through the means of contemporary jewellery. Textures and surfaces determine her approach to the visual composition.

 Christine Jalio - Past, Loss, Future 7', Christine Jalio 2015, brooch, Silk Clay and silver: Christine Jalio – Past, Loss, Future 7′, Christine Jalio 2015, brooch, Silk Clay and silver
Christine Jalio (1978) is extremely fascinated by the human psyche and the emotions and reactions that are part of it. She is intrigued by asceticism, old age and sensitivity. Her starting point is always an emotion to which she strives to find the correct combination of materials, shapes and colours. The “Loss” collection is a continuum of her earlier “Past, Loss, Future” collection which tells the story of aging and life before and after big turning points in life. In this new collection she has been concentrating on personal loss, sadness, and loneliness; on what an individual goes through emotionally when loosing someone loved. The main material she uses is still Silk Clay, but in addition she has been experimenting with other materials such as resin, acrylic and plaster this year.

Wiebke Pandikow studied Jewelry Design in Lahti, Finland and now lives and works as a jewelry artist in Helsinki. She has been working with plastic bags since 2014. Without the ubiquitous plastic, our civilization could hardly have become what it is today, but at the same time it is an immense burden on the environment. Especially plastic bags are an obvious symbol for mindless consumerism and a throw-away society. This makes them so interesting for Wiebke to work with: to create from them textures and structures that recall forms of a natural world that we have set ourselves apart from. What was living organisms thousands of years ago, then became oil, then became plastic, now is returned into forms that resemble living plants once more. In our culture, plastics are commonplace, invaluable yet insignificant. For this artist, they bear the possibility of beauty.

Hatara Project, Time Perception VOL.2 #28 - 'Come', Helmi Lindblom 2015, brooches, mixed media, picture Ninni Vidgren: Helmi Lindblom   ‘Come’, 2015, brooches, mixed media, picture Ninni Vidgren
Helmi Lindblom is fascinated by the beauty of oddity.  
The jewelry series Come is made to mimic the object that awakens the child within us. Come is a series of brooches and necklaces that invites you to come and step closer maybe even touch. Series is inspired by a plant that consists of two cactuses crafted together by man.The combinations are made purely for aesthetic reasons regardless of the health of the plant. With this series Helmi recreates the feeling that the crafted cactus evokes in beholder: triggering a childlike curiosity and excitement based purely on the bizarre aesthetics of the plant.

Melina Lindroos is a jewelry artist located in Helsinki. Themes that she feels especially drawn to are places, time and people’s inner lives. Melina is a listener and a searcher. Her approach could be seen as a life long journey, which lifts up bits of what she sees and what she wants to see, where she is coming from and where she is headed. « My series Hiding places lifts up the importance of shelter related to safety. These brooches are made through a slow meditative process in a comforting space. » says Melina.
The tender series of brooches invites the viewer to peek inside and hold them.

Ginta Zabarovska (born 1989) graduated bachelor (2013) and master (2015) programs in the Art Academy of Latvia metal design department. While studying she actively participates in various exhibitions and competitions.
The artist draws her inspiration in traveling and by contacting with interesting personalities. As an important source of impact in the artist’s activities she considers studies at the Art Academy of Strasbourg in 2012/13. Due to the semester spent in France, the artist has found a growing interest in contemporary jewelry history and now continues her studies in the Art Academy of Latvia as a PhD student working on jewellery art history in Latvia during the post soviet period. While creating design for new jewelry pieces Ginta doesn’t spend long hours preparing sketches or technical drawings. Rather she prefers to work in the material; the idea gradually crystallizes in the working process. From a variety of experimental materials jewelry models are created searching for their compatibility with one another. The artist is bound by various types of graphic lines and delicacy in the plane so she fits these values in three dimensional pieces – they become jewelry.
Gintas jewelry theme for the exhibition Time Perception VOL.2 is home. As Ginta is repeatedly working in Strasbourg for a longer period she find’s the feelings of home and affiliation an inspiration for her work.

During SCHMUCK 2016 : EXPO ‘MATICES’ – Wigel Space, Munich (DE) – 25-27 Fevr. 2016

Matices by Jordi Aparicio and Jorge Manilla Exhibition

25 Feb 2016 – 27 Feb 2016 – at Wigel Space

 Matices by Jordi Aparicio and Jorge Manilla Exhibition  /  Schmuck - MJW 2016  /  25 Feb 2016  -  27 Feb 2016 - Wigel Space:

The starting point for this exhibition is to show to the public constant research and meaning of refinements in materials, shapes and colors. Artists duet  Jorge Manilla and Jordi Aparicio bring the equal importance to the pieces of their work.
MATICES   is a way to depict vividly the small differences in the full process and result of the work. Going from precious  to the most primitivism both of artist emphasize metaphorical meaning of shade, tinge,tint and bland.
The result of this exhibition will be full of layers in a definition based in their personal perspective.

Jorge Manilla - MATICES: Jorge Manilla

“There is nothing to be afraid of”
« “You have to die a few times before you can really live” Charles Bukowsky
Thinking and reflecting about different life situations, I have been asking myself about what is the beginning and what is the end. We are dealing all the time with this two concepts in  our feelings, emotions, relationships, situations and even the life. When something ends what  are the memories we keep? And when something start are we talking about a real start or it is just the contination of other end. I started working in this project shameless and giving myself to you as the most fragile person. I have been afraid but getting into my creative process I was  trying to come as close I can to my psychological recognition. Using  the act of burning in a methaphorical way as symbol of purification. I made my own compositions of textures representing emotions, feelings, situations and frame it to keep the moment, just a moment, never pretending to define anything and giving to you this moment to find and recognize your own memories,as ghosts of the past and burn it.  In this project am as a Phoenix rising again and again from the death  from the ashes of my own emotions without being afraid because I know  and each end I always reborn and start  my new beginning. »  Jorge Manilla 2016

SPECIALS, a HandShake Alumni exhibition #42

SPECIALS, a HandShake Alumni exhibition features twenty one jewellery artists from New Zealand showing at the Einsäulensaal in the Munich Residenz Palace from 25 – 27 February 2016.
Peter Deckers has curated a special selection of works and projects from the HANDSHAKE programme. This one-off exhibition showcases the best work from the 12 national and international exhibitions over the last 5 years.

The HANDSHAKE Project is an art development programme for progressive ideas, making, presentations, feedback and networking for contemporary New Zealand jewellers.
The project began in February 2011, with emerging jewellers matched in mentoring roles with their chosen idols from all across the globe. Each mentee’s development was not only supported by their mentor but also through a series of workshops, masterclasses and most importantly, exhibitions in prestigious galleries in NZ and beyond.
The HandShake project will begin its third iteration (HandShake3) following the SPECIALS Alumni exhibition. Selected jewellers have been chosen from the first two projects to develop new bodies of work for a fresh series of international exhibitions, with a focus on collaboration in its broadest sense. The purpose of this HS3 programme is to allow the former mentee to become an independent artist, steering their own developments. The mentor now becomes a colleague and in most cases also a fellow art collaborator.

Der Goldschmied Gerd Rothmann lebt und arbeitet seit fast 50 Jahren in München. Hier wurde er nicht nur Zeitzeuge eines veränderten Schmuckbewusstseins, sondern er gestaltet über Jahrzehnte diesen Prozess bis zum heutigen Tag aktiv mit. Geboren in Frankfurt am Main im Jahr 1941 führte sein Weg nicht unmittelbar zum Schmuckmachen. Eine Lehre als Werkzeugmacher, später eine Ausbildung zum Gold- und Silberschmied an der Staatlichen Zeichenakademie in Hanau konnten nicht das Feuer entfachen, das ihn heute noch voller Leidenschaft antreibt Schmuck zu gestalten.
Die Begegnung mit Hermann Jünger in den späten 1960er Jahren in München war es, die Rothmanns Begeisterung für das Thema Schmuck provozierte und für ihn zur lebenslangen Berufung werden ließ. Wer Gerd Rothmann heute in seiner Münchner Goldschmiedewerkstatt und seiner Wohnung erlebt, hat eventuell das Glück, mit ihm auf die Reise vom Ende der 60er Jahre mit seinen frühen, farbenfrohen Broschen aus Kunststoffen und Acrylglas, bis hin zur silbernen Krone aus dem Jahr 2008 und den allerneuesten Silberarmreifen mit reliefartigen Fingern mitgenommen zu werden.
Rothmanns Wohnung in der Fraunhoferstrasse bezeugt seine Nähe und seine Vorliebe für die Kunst, sei es Musik, Malerei oder Design. Seine Werkstatt in der Jahnstraße ist ein Eldorado an Maschinen, Werkzeugen, Skizzen und Aufzeichnungen, Fundstücken und vorbereiteten Details für Ketten, Armbänder oder Broschen. Hier regiert auch das Handwerk einen gewaltigen Teil an dem mit, was Rothmanns Schmuck charakterisiert und auszeichnet. Das Spannungsfeld zwischen Kunst, Handwerk und individueller vom Menschen geprägter und mit Menschen in starke Beziehungen gebrachte Gestaltungskraft. Seine Körperabformungen in Gold und Silber, sein Schmuck mit den Fingerabdrücken der Auftraggeber oder naher Bezugspersonen sind zum Symbol für Rothmanns Goldschmiedekunst geworden.
Der Weg dorthin und die begleitenden Prozesse sind Gegenstand und Inhalt der Ausstellung in der Galerie Handwerk, die Gerd Rothmann zu Ehren zur Zeit der Internationalen Handwerksmesse in München gezeigt wird. Das Ausstellungskonzept und die Gestaltung der Präsentation stammen von ihm selbst, sie haben eine gezielt temporäre Auffassung und zeigen viele Dinge, die ihm beim Schmuckmachen wichtig sind. In dieser umfangreichsten Werkübersicht, die es jemals über ihn gab, sind sicher auch für Rothmann -Kenner und -Liebhaber Dinge zu entdecken, die man so noch nicht gesehen hat. Die Exponate stammen aus den Jahren von 1968 bis heute und zeigen alle wichtigen Werkbereiche seines Schmucks. In der Ausstellung sind auch Zweitanfertigungen von Aufträgen zu sehen. Sie dienen Rothmanns Archiv.
„Affären“ ist der Titel der Ausstellung. Gerd Rothmann suchte dabei nach einem Begriff für das Sinnliche, nervös vibrierende Hin und Her von Schmuck und Person. Schmuckstücke für bestimmte Personen finden und gestalten, ist seine Arbeit. Verborgene Wünsche und versteckte Sehnsüchte erspüren, oder das Bedürfnis, sich in einer anderen Ebene zu erleben, ist sein Material. Seine besten Arbeiten sind in diesem Zusammenhang entstanden. Die ästhetischen Ansprüche Rothmanns kommen aus der Auseinandersetzung mit der Kunst und den Menschen. Sie beflügeln sich gegenseitig und sind nicht voneinander zu trennen. Beide Aspekte sind für ihn in der Ideenfindung existenziell.
Gerd Rothmanns Arbeiten finden sich in über 20 öffentlichen und zahlreichen privaten Sammlungen weltweit. Er gehört zu den bekanntesten und international renommiertesten Goldschmieden, die den besonderen Ruf Münchens als Metropole des Schmucks heute verkörpern.
