EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Isabelle MOLENAT – un lien qui se crée …

« A piece of jewellery is a messenger passing emotions.
An object both unique and universal.
Once worn, it continues the maker’s narrative.
Through jewellery the body extends itself, revealing the  wearer’s appropriation
to the viewer and the rest of the world.
My work deals with this triangulation. My narratives are based on those intimate exchanges.
My jewellery work is just a story about links,
those links which my mind relies on,
links between people,
links to the world. »

Après moult liés et déliés, est arrivée la collection « KNOTs« , noeuds, et c’est là que j’ai découvert l’univers textile d’Isabelle Molénat, je crois à point nommé …. C’est ce qu’on nomme un coup de coeur …. ;-) …… comme cet objet-coeur ….

« Les « Knots » sont des pièces uniques, bijoux faits de soie teintée de manière végétale (bains de plantes: eucalyptus, indigo, ortie, ronce…), marqués d’empreintes végétales et gainés pour les tresser comme de l’osier. Le résultat est spectaculaire, aérien et sculptural à la fois, dans des teintes de bleus, pourpres, beiges, verts, subtils et présents. Imaginés et réalisés avec talent par Isabelle Molénat  » (Galerie Bettina Flament)

Les "Links" d'Isabelle Molénat se portent maintenant aussi en broches grâce à une attache en acier sur laquelle on fixe le link. Un 5-en-1 donc désormais: collier, bracelet, headband, ceinture... et broche! Bonne journée à tous.

« Le bijou est un messager, un passeur d’émotions.
Un objet à la fois singulier et universel.
Porté, il fait suite au récit de son créateur.
Et le corps s’étend à travers le bijou dans une appropriation qui s’offre au regard
du spectateur.
Dans cette triangulation je glisse mon travail, récits que je construis autour de
ces échanges intimes.
Mes bijoux sont juste une histoire de liens,
liens entre tout ce qui fondent mon esprit,
liens entre les êtres,
liens avec le monde. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jonathan Hens – the HIGHWAY of success !

Jonathan Hens

I discovered his works at fall 2013 during PARIS – CIRCUITS BIJOUX , at the exhibition ‘Precieux Passages’ at Bibliothèque Forney. A first « face to face » with a (very) STRONG creation !

Strong creation that encountered SUCCESS : in 2012 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents his works, together with some other students, at SIERAAD 2012 Amsterdam, we saw his works at Marzee Graduate show 2012 AND 2013, an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2014 (« Lights ON/Lights OFF » 3 stations Galerie, Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2015 (« Oscure sacrifices« , together with Jorge Manilla, at 3STATIONS,  Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2016 (« Trans-it » – 3STATIONS,  Munich), has been selected  for TALENTE 2016, Munich, he is presented at AUTOR 2016 (the International Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucarest, Romania) ……
This is not the « Route of Success », it’s an HIGHWAY !!!

« After having researched different kinds of sub-and material-cultures, Jonathan Hens constructs with his own culture of tin while exploring the different qualities of the metal, making himself a master of his practice. By engraving, pouncing and printing, he develops a new dimension to the material. This results in graphic surfaces combined with archaic shapes and volumes. Hen’s pieces, beautiful as they are, are not indented as mere objects, but as points of recognition in a world of Tribal Ravers. They cross time and cultures. They are an ode to the pleasures of the now. »

Autor 2016.  Jonathan Hens. Alliages Choice.: Jonathan Hens works presented at Autor 2016  

« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to launch his fetishism line.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. He heightens the geometry and black textures by using suture thread to bind the various elements.
His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference betweens the sexes.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. » / Jorge ManillaJonathan Hens -   THE CITY IS MY CHURCH - 2014 - #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ LatexTHE CITY IS MY CHURCH – 2014 – #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ Latex

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Yiota VOGLI – Thoughts like birds will always hover high in the sky …

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Grece (GR),SOFA Chicago (US),VIDEO,Yiota VOGLI (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:50

Yiota Vogli  is not new on my blog, you know her !
She is not a new « discovery », une « DECOUVERTE », but she is still, and always!, a « COUP de COEUR »  :-) , as you can see on my last post where we could discover her « SUMMER WHITES » she did for the Athens Jewellery week, during summer 2016, « COUP de COEUR : Yiota Vogli, layers of paper, layers of MEMORY ….«  , but she is a little like Lucky Luke, doing new jewels faster than her shadow !!! ;-)
So here are her last creations we had the pleasure to discover at last JOYA Barcelona 2016 : the SHADOWS collection

« SHADOWS , 
We are aware of a tiny fraction of the thinking process that goes on in our minds, and we can control only a tiny part of our conscious thoughts. The vast majority of our thinking efforts go on subconsciously. »

 Yiota Vogli -  Shadows collection at JOYA 2016Yiota Vogli Shadows collection at JOYA 2016 – birds ….

« Shadows’ 2016, this body of works is the embodiment of a fantasy world populated with shadows, exotic birds, grotesque demons and fairies, an exploration of the aesthetic and literary values of such creatures and the real and symbolic nature of the shadow as an image and a figure. Thoughts like birds will always hover high in the sky but it is our responsibility to prevent the ‘birds’ from landing in our minds. Those creatures become symbolic statements and represent obsessions, our ideas and fears or projections of our subconscious. Based on this approach, they are merely symbolic representations of human psychological states. »
