EXPO – ’0 + 0 = 0′ – Christchurch Art Gallery (NEW ZEALAND) – 16 Dec. 2016 – 2 Avr. 2017

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,GALERIES,Lisa WALKER (DE/NZ),Nlle Zelande (NZ),www Klimt02 — bijoucontemporain @ 14:08

0 + 0 = 0 by Lisa Walker

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu presents an exclusive exhibition of new and recent works by this internationally acclaimed artist, who received the prestigious Françoise van den Bosch Award in 2010 and became an Arts Foundation Laureate in 2015

Lisa Walker Artist Talk.  Wednesday, 15 February 2017 / 6pm
Artist Lisa Walker’s extreme, iconoclastic jewellery has been described as ‘the physical manifestation of the mental and virtual baggage of living NOW’.

0 + 0=0 by Lisa Walker Exhibition  /  16 Dec 2016  -  02 Apr 2017 - Christchurch Art Gallery -  Place     Cnr Worcester Blvd and Montreal St     Christchurch     NEW ZEALAND: (Lisa Walker Necklace: Untitled, 2016 Fabric, stuffing Courtesy of the artist and Funaki Gallery, Melbourne)

It might be tempting to say that Lisa Walker makes jewellery out of any old thing – but it isn’t true. The eclectic objects that form her distinctive necklaces, brooches and other body-adornments are meticulously selected and shrewdly modified before they see the light of day. She salvages her materials from an unlikely cornucopia of sources – re-presenting objects such as car parts, animal skins and even kitchen utensils through the frame of body adornment’s long history. Tiny Lego hats, helmets and hairpieces – of the kind that clog vacuum cleaner nozzles in children’s bedrooms around the world – are strung on finely plaited cords like exotic beads or shells; trashy gossip magazines are lashed together to yield a breastplate befitting our celebrity-obsessed culture; dozens of oboe reeds donated by a musician friend bristle round the wearer’s neck like the teeth of some unimaginable deep sea leviathan.
Walker’s work doesn’t sit comfortably within the contours of conventional jewellery – it squirms, fidgets, stretches and unravels. ‘I want to make pieces that don’t fit any of those jewellery recipes, yet still make sense as jewellery,’ she once said.1 In a field known for refined finishes and seamless construction, her audaciously sized, deliberately low-tech pieces inject a blast of pure creative oxygen, wilfully disobeying established jewellery conventions and confounding audience expectations. Despite their bodged-up, glued-together appearance and gleefully tacky origins, Walker’s works are anything but haphazard – rather they are elevated by her acute sense of colour and composition and healthy sense of irony. The new and recent pieces included in her Christchurch Art Gallery show, 0 + 0 = 0, explore a range of critical concerns; confronting jewellery-specific preconceptions about wearability and craftsmanship, they also investigate the politics of value, identity and appropriation.
…..
While some of Walker’s materials are amassed close to home – she once made a necklace from six months’ worth of detritus collected from her studio floor – she also ranges more widely, combing the world of the non-precious for idiosyncratic treasures. Together with physical objects, she collects memories and associations, a process made explicit in Trip to Europe 1973 (2011), a necklace, constructed from the postcards, train tickets, concert programmes and other souvenirs a ‘cultured couple’ offered for sale on Trade Me. For Walker, having just returned home after fifteen years spent living in Germany, the mementos spoke of New Zealand’s complex history of arrivals – including those of Māori and European settlers – and of how cultures are transported, translated and transformed. Recent pieces such as Pendant (2016) reflect her interest in (and ambivalence about) exchange and appropriation and especially how these might play out within a New Zealand context. Assembled from pounamu offcuts given to Walker by a sculptor friend, Pendantcombines varied surfaces cut from several different stones, offering a beautiful, but deliberately problematic, addition to the tradition of Māori taonga.

Lisa Walker Dick Necklace 2016  Lisa Walker Dick Necklace 2016

Despite the irreverence of its title, and the ubiquitous banality of the phallic graffiti that inspired it, another, equally serious, reclamation prompted the creation of Dick Necklace (2016).
I live with the challenges of a patriarchal world and [its] hideous anti-women history. I’m intrigued by the online activity of the younger feminists. I was always impressed by Louise Bourgeois’s giant bronze cast penis sculpture [Filette (1968)]. Many years ago I saw a postcard of her as a 70-something year old woman, standing next to it with her hand gently, but authoritatively, resting on the giant penis. ‘Dick and balls’ drawings are a cultural phenomenon; we grow up with these scrawlings everywhere. The penis can be symbolically positive and negative; fertility and love, but also rape, misogyny, imbalance of power. As a feminist I now take, claim, and interpret it for myself, twisting its symbology into something else.
‘I learned a long time ago that you don’t have to find the answers. It’s enough for the works to keep asking the questions.’
The thorny issue of copying and influence has long fascinated Walker, gaining new relevance as social media allows for the increasingly unrestricted distribution and repurposing of imagery of all kinds. She joined Instagram, the online image-sharing service, in 2015 and describes it as a ‘huge hunting ground’,2 admitting she is now influenced more by what she finds online than by actual, ‘real world’ objects. A posted shot of Masturbine (1984), a well-known work by the renowned contemporary Swiss duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss, prompted her own Fischli & Weiss Bracelet(2016), which replaces the original’s whorl of expensive leather footwear with budget heels from her local Number One Shoes warehouse. A photograph of a cellphone bound up in the twisted cord of an old-school desk phone, uploaded by the Los Angeles-based artists Mitra Saboury and Derek Paul Boyle under the Instagram nomenclature ‘Meatwreck’, proved irresistible. Walker recreated it, almost exactly, in the form of an oversized pendant and, though she remains delighted with the piece, doesn’t shy away from the questions about ownership and creative license this kind of borrowing provokes. In fact, the discomfort inherent in such appropriation is shared by artist and collectors, since Walker’s works are primarily designed not to be displayed politely indoors, but to travel with their wearers out into the wild, wide open of the public domain. ‘I learned a long time ago that you don’t have to find the answers,’ she says, ‘It’s enough for the works to keep asking the questions.
  If the eclectic forms of Walker’s work reflect the democracy and limitless possibility of our new open-source world, her ‘more is more’ aesthetic also suggests the sense of chaos and overload it can provoke. With every online image potentially linked to thousands more, how could you ever see it all? Excessive, oversized, popping at the seams with look-at-me impudence, Walker’s works draw upon and reflect the unrelenting abundance of modern life. And yet, taken one piece at a time, they’re much more than thrown-together clickbait. At its most anarchic, jewellery that is created to be worn still requires its maker to take into account a series of considerations that don’t constrain other art forms, like painting or sculpture. As she creates her pieces, often concealing traditional jewellery processes beneath contemporary kitsch, Walker thinks about weight, scale, durability, and how her pieces will relate to the yet-unknown body they are destined to adorn. Having thrown out the rulebooks in her early practice, she now values the technical challenges these self-imposed limits present, enjoying how they slow things down and distil her attention, demanding mindful focus in a fast-moving world. In discussion, it soon becomes apparent that this process fuels, rather than suppresses, Walker’s high-voltage imagination. Recalling a project in which she turned an entire building (City Gallery Wellington) into a brooch by clipping a giant mild-steel safety chain to its ceiling and attaching the other end to a wearer via an enormous pin, she mischievously refers to it as only her ‘second largest work’. She’s not kidding; the scale of that audacious project is effortlessly eclipsed by another one. Existing, so far, in solely conceptual form it features a chain, pinned to its wearer, with planet Earth on the other end.  Felicity Milburn, Curator

She just had an exhibition, Unexpected, since  NOV 24th 2016  at Craft Council of British Columbia‎ Gallery, 1386 Cartwright Street, Granville Island; Vancouver V6H 3R8 – An Exhibition by the Vancouver Metal Arts Association

Unexpected explores the strange and sometimes discordant elements that make the viewing, wearing, and making of Contemporary Jewellery an enjoyable endeavor.
The unexpected and Contemporary Art Jewellery are by no means strange bedfellows- viewers and wearers of Contemporary Jewellery often seek out our discipline because it is unusual and extra-ordinary. The unusual, and unusual elements and materials, have become de rigueur in a creative world that continues to embrace post-disciplinary art practices which move beyond medium centered approaches to making.
Participating artists: Lydia Buxton — Melissa Cameron — Bridget Catchpole — Barbara Cohen — Jennifer Crupi – Yoshie Hattori — Kyri Hinkleman — Holland Houdek — Karin Jones — Joshua Kosker — Matt Lambert — Andy Lowrie – Jacqueline Lung — Brooke Marks-Swanson –  Sharon Massey — Louise Perrone- – Lissy Selvius — Jina SeoAric Verrastro — Kari Woo — Lawrence Woodford.

UNEXPECTED - 2016(Bridget Catchpole “What a Tangle” neckpiece 2016, photo credit: Tanya King // Joshua Kosker « [re]embody » brooch)

 

Artist Statement
The extraordinary power of objects is obtained, because people believe in them. The more mundane the objects are, the more powerful they become. 
My practice contextualizes the primitive energy that is submerged beneath the layers of garments. When the body is removed, the absence becomes an empty structure. The internal structure is evidence of human existence. It remains full of authentic spirit and fantasy. 
Through the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing materials into symbolic forms, I uncover the hidden intimate and sensual power of humanity. It is a moment when ordinary objects become surreal and uncanny in order to redeem the socially constructed expectations and perceptions.

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jelizaveta Suska – Beauties like asteroïds …..

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Exposition/Exhibition,Jelizaveta SUSKA (LV/SE) — bijoucontemporain @ 23:40

Jelizaveta Suska FROZEN MOMENTS suite …..  (but now it IS time, about « frozen » …..)

« ………. My idea is to show the beauty of a moment in a landscape or stone-like abstract figures crafted in to brooches.
To make this project I crafted more than 200 hundred pieces. I selected 21 and made them into jewelry. »

This 2-4 december 2016 had an exhibition, « Jelizaveta Suska – Frozen Moment » at  Galleri Blunk (Strandveien 23, Svartlamoen, 7042 Trondheim – Norgepost@galleriblunk.com)

« ‘Frozen Moment’ pieces are a lot about feelings of nostalgia, of a moment in time. In my work I was looking for materialization of these abstract matters. I based it on associations and feelings. After a period of research I came up with my own material, that the pieces are made out of. This material has two main compounds: polymer, that is light and transparent, just like ‘a moment’ and crushed marble, that creates an illusion of a solid stone which I associate with a feeling of nostalgia.
In the beginning of crafting each piece, material is hot and dynamic but in a while it turns still. Like a metaphor of a moment becoming a memory. When looking at my works, people often are saying that they look like ice or unknown minerals.
I question traditional approaches and instead of valuable jewels I celebrate the idea behind the material. That’s why for the rear of the brooches and other supporting details I use valuable metals like gold, gold plated silver and titanium. »

Let’s go with NOSTALGIA ! in this period of end of year, it’s always my main sentiment ….. these brooches look like asteroïds, little planets in distress ….

but let Jelizaveta have the lest words to finish this year 2016 :

« Time to make a summary of this amazing year. So many things happened to me that I actually think it has been more than one year. I have traveled to Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain, Finland, Danmark and Norway. WOW!!! Fells like a dream, not all of it was a good dream. Shit also happened. But lets stay on a bright side. I got a cat!
Than I got two awards: Amberif Amber prize and Herbert Hoffman Prize. My work was featured in several prints between them is The New York Times (hell yeah!!! EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jelizaveta Suska - Beauties like asteroïds ..... dans COUP DE COEUR 1f603 :D ), exhibited at Liljevalsch Springsalong, Moving Art Project, Schmuck 2016, gallery Sintra, Nääs Konsthantverk, Joya Barcelona, Konstepidemin, gallery PLATINA, gallery Blunk. My work is now at National Museum collection in Stockholm (MY Gosh!), collections of galleries Platina and Four, also in the collections of some of the most respectable and amazing collectors. I got support from several foundations, also from Swedish Arts and Grants committee.
All this puts a weight on my shoulders, gives me a kick and inspires. I still have a lot to learn and have to work hard. I look to a coming year with a hope for opportunity to work with art more than I could this year, to improve and never let down anyone.
I am so very grateful to everyone who supports me and likes what I do and believes in art jewelry. Thank you! »
