JOYA Barcelona 2014 – Art Jewellery Fair, October 9, 10 and 11, 2014
This year JOYA will have seven collectives :
Artist Collective ANIMA from Austria,
from Portugal and CORPO
For the first time, there will also be the collective Bench 886
from Taiwan, formed by 6 talented artists, and the collective JOYA BRAVA
from Chile, with 10 artists on stage.
« We are a new and fresh (april 2014) collective called Aac (Alchimia alumni collective). This collective was created just a couple of months ago, co-founded by Andrea Coderch, Catalina Gibert and Dinah Lee as a platform for past and future Alchimia alumni. Our main goal is to showcase their and our work, so as to put contemporary jewelry on the map in a larger scale, introducing it to the general public as it is still an unexplored territory to many.
Being friends, colleagues and former schoolmates, we naturally discussed the current state of contemporary jewelry amongst ourselves. We came to the conclusion that we would be much stronger as a collective and could help not just each other, but on a much larger scale by having this platform available for all past and future alumni, especially giving that we all come from the same school of training, have a common understanding and approach to our individual work. Our aim is to create, one day in the near future, a movement, a kind of contemporary jewelry “awareness”, as we feel that it is still very much an unrecognized area of the arts.
Gradually, we want to be able to organize, create and participate in different events and exhibitions all around the world, in different cities.«
The members of the Aac Team will be … : Akiko Ban– Andrea Coderch — Catalina Gibert — Dinah Lee — Gabi Veit — Lavinia Rossetti — Michelle Kraemer – Nur Terün and Selen Özus.
