EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Julia Obermaier – coup de coeur « lapidaire »

Julia Obermaier

C’est drôle comme « le hasard fait bien les choses » …. Ou, il n’y a pas de hasard ….Un de mes problèmes majeurs dans ma vie actuelle est ma « distance aux gens » … trop près, trop loin, je ne sais jamais où, comment me situer …. trop au bord, spectateur, voyeur, ou trop « dedans », trop impliqué … J’avais coutume de dire à mes enfants « la liberté de chacun, c’est comme une bulle : tu as ta bulle, qui te protège et t’entoure, mais elle est fragile et se « brise » facilement. Et chacun a la sienne. Il faut réussir à t’approcher des gens de manière à ce que ni ta bulle ni la leur n’éclate. C’est ça la liberté de chacun, c’est ça « ta liberté commence là où fini la mienne ». C’est un délicat jeu d’équilibre » …. Je me rappelle, ils m’écoutaient bouche bée ….. Eh bien c’est exactement de ça que parlent les bijoux de Julia Obermaier ! « The distance between people« , the « Private space » ….. Cette découverte m’apporte une immense émotion, et ce d’autant plus que …. comment dire ? ses bijoux me touchaient, je ne savais pas pourquoi, parce qu’à priori ce n’était pas « mon genre » de bijoux mais plus un « genre », un style de bijoux, très prisé actuellement parmi ce qui vient d’Idar-Oberstein ……

Julia Obermaier – (Sur)face the space.
« Private space. Working area. The distance between people. The distance between the world and me. Space is a really important subject for me. If someone is crossing the borders of my spaces without permission, it causes a bad feeling within me. That is why I try to protect them as much as possible. But in daily life, one cannot always keep direct surroundings and personal space in their preferred way. This is because our outside world is always in relation with other people and circumstances.
To build my own spaces I cut slices out of agate or rock crystal.  They represent rooms, spaces, containers, boxes or little caves. Some of my works have empty spaces with corners or nooks, while others have an inner life through engravings I cut within the pieces. I am generating space which can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer.
In contrast to the large space around us filled with other people, I see these pieces as a part of ourselves. They are little copies of the viewer or the wearer. The space inside is reserved for what people find within themselves. The outside surrounding, which is not always controllable for us, becomes the protector of what lies within the piece.  The wearer can then decide if and who is allowed to approach the work, take a look or even touch it. The pieces embody ideas of a second skin and soul protector from the outside world.  They are meant to induce a comforting feeling of inner silence for the wearer, that they can use to confront a busy world. »

« With her bachelor thesis Julia Obermaier delivers a statement of monumental grandeur. To do so, working mainly in agate and rock crystal, is a matter of concentration and patience as well as of spatial transition. Acquiring an extended awareness of space and volume, in the sense of an architectonic perspective,  paired with an empathical sensibility for the wearers and observers body and mind, and at the same time bordering the restrictions of jewellery is a remarkable feature of Obermaiers process of work. The result is a collection of wearables in gemstone with a high quality of sensitivity. As an object, Obermaiers pieces are intriguing and inviting, as soon as they are worn and in unity with the body, they show an until than almost hidden sensuality. » / Theo Smeets

« Agate is one of my most favorite materials. The huge secrecy and variety of agate as a stone and its use over centuries is attracting me in my work. Studying the layers and druses of agate amazes me and makes me curious. What is happening? What is in there? I want to arise these feelings as well in the wearers and viewers of my pieces. You can find sensitivity, strength and multifaceted sides not just in agates, as well in every other living creature. »

Melting Point Valencia 2016

SUR o NO SUR -  - Centre del Carme. Calle Museo, 2. Sur o no Sur. Joyería Argentina Contemporánea

Sur o no Sur es un proyecto iniciado por Eva Burton en la ciudad de Barcelona.
Nace de la necesidad de mostrar a nivel internacional la contribución de los argentinos a la disciplina de la Joyería Contemporánea.
Gracias al apoyo de la galerista argentina Mercedes Rodrigo, la exposición fue presentada por primera vez en Octubre 2014 en Galería Siesta durante Joya Barcelona.
Esta primera experiencia tuvo una repercusión muy positiva en el público y logró captar la atención en diferentes sitios de Europa. Así, Sur o no Sur ha sido exhibido por segunda vez en Marzo de 2015 en Galería Silvestre, Tarragona (España). En Mayo de 2015 ha formado parte del Silver Festival en Legnica (Polonia) no sólo en el cartel de exposiciones sino también dentro del marco del Simposio “Boundaries” (“Fronteras”) llevado a cabo durante el festival.
Hoy, luego de dos años de haberse iniciado el proyecto, Sur o no Sur hace una nueva estación de itinerancia con en la Tercera Edición del encuentro internacional de Joyería Contemporánea de Valencia: el Melting Point.

 Astonish Valencia

“Astonish” es un grupo de jóvenes joyeros alumnos o graduados del Campus Idar Oberstein (Universidad de Ciencias Aplicadas de Trier) en el Departamento de Joyería y Talla de Piedra.
Estudiar en Idar- Oberstein no significa sólamente encontrar un lenguaje propio en forma y materia, sino también lidiar con el término “piedra preciosa”. Ya sea que lo amemos, odiemos o abandonemos, nuestra intención con este proyecto en enseñar al mundo diferentes aproximaciones en relación a las piedras.
Luego de tres exposiciones en Alemania durante las ferias Inhorgenta, Internationale Handwerksmesse (Schmuck) en Munich e Intergem en Freiburg, tenemos nuevamente la oportunidad de compartir nuestro trabajo durante la tercera edición del Simposio de Joyería Contemporánea de Valencia conocido como “Melting Point”.
