at Stadtmuseum Simeonstift Trier

Neuer Schmuck aus Idar-Oberstein - NSAIO 6

Beginning with the renaissance of gemstones in jewellery design since the 1970s, Ute Eitzenhöfer, Theo Smeets, Lothar Brügel (ret. 2014) and Eva-Maria Kollischan (since 2014) successfully established the Hochschule Trier in Idar-Oberstein as a creative European jewellery centre. To mark the exhibition in the Stadtmusem Simeonstift in Trier on thirty years of the Gemstone and Jewellery Department, the publication shows an exciting selection of works from the last ten years (2006-2016). Works in creative design and photography accompany diverse approaches that exemplify the contemporary use of a reputedly ‘outmoded’ raw material.
In exploring the aesthetic characteristics of the material and the experimental confrontation with its physical qualities, the gemstone’s potential for design comes entirely into its own. Within current discourse it comments ironically, on the one hand, on the unilateral societal ascription as a luxury item; on the other, it functions as a charming and noble object of nature.

IRREVERSIBLE
*impossible to return to a previous condition

 Opening: 02 December at 19.00
 Raluca Buzura Solo Exhibition
Popeye Loves Olive – Art Space presents, for the first time in Greece the Romanian jewelry artist Raluca Buzura. Using porcelain as a medium, the artist is creating three-dimensional jewelry, combining the organic forms with the elements of nature. 

   Raluca Buzura Solo Exhibition « IRREVERSIBLE

*impossible to return to a previous condition
Each human being lives for himself and takes his own actions, but as soon as he does it, this action, committed at a certain moment in time becomes irreversible and makes itself a part of the history. Therefore, my whole work defines the irreversibility of the actions I chose to take and of the material itself: once acquired a certain shape, at the end of the process, it cannot go backward, it becomes permanent. »
Nothing we do is inevitable, but everything we do is irreversible” -Joy Williams

About the artist:
———————————–
I attended the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, department ceramic-glass-metal, and then, from 2007,
I followed master in the same section.
During the studies, my works were in the installation area, participating in various projects and exhibitions. Since 2009, main focus becomes contemporary jewelry design.
My interest in jewelry may also come from the fact that this area has not been given much attention. Frequently, people use to see it only as an over plus brought to the human body, that has a value depending on the material used. Therefore, it was also a challenge to change viewer’s angle and to reveal an alternative, and more precisely that jewelry can be considered a work of art in its own right, having an artistic understanding, concept and message that can cover a wide range of fields. I continued to work by maintaining a preference for ceramic materials, due to the transformation of the material from one state to another: once acquired a certain shape, it can’t return to what it was before.
I like to combine seemingly fragile ceramic material with metal hardness or the warmth of a fabric, then to submit the form to compositional experiments that create the most expressive side of my creations. My work is a translation in porcelain of my personal experiences, trying to obliterate these traces during the process by simplifying the boundaries between real and abstract, in a swirl of colors and lines waterfalls from which are foreseen flashes of gold. The result of these experiences I like to think that is a legacy, a proof of my existence that reflects on the society, making it if not better, at least more beautiful and trying to rekindle the gap between public and art, by presenting a variety of aesthetic shapes and ideas that could remove it from the serial area.

« Transition is a never-ending movement, a perpetual passing by without stopping. The artistic creation process is a walk along unforeseen and unknown paths. A jewel is an object in transition, especially when it leaves its ornamental function and becomes an artistic work piece, when it acquires the strength to move us, when it sets in motion the symbolic being that lies within us. » Ramon Puig Cuyas.

« Transitar es un estado de contínuo movimiento, un pasar perpetuo, sin detenerse. El proceso de la creación artística es un transitar por territorios imprevistos y no conocidos antes. La joya es un objeto de tránsito, sobre todo cuando abandona su función decorativa y se convierte en objeto artístico, cuando adquiere la fuerza para conmovernos, cuando pone en movimiento a nuestro ser simbólico que todos llevamos con nosotros« . Ramon Puig Cuyàs Escola Massana (Barcelona)

« Si marcamos sobre un mapa el recorrido de nuestros pasos por este mundo desde el día en que nacimos, nos saldrán un montón de garabatos apretujados alrededor de unos pequeños nodos y algunas líneas más sinuosas, largas o cruces. Uno, nos ha conducido a la escuela, donde estamos en tránsito hacia la experiencia en nuestro quehacer como joyeros, pero ahora, es esta exposición de nuestras creaciones, prueba de ese viaje extraordinario que nos lleva hasta una nueva encrucijada en nuestra trayectoria: Schmuck München ».

nsaio5 - The new jewellery from Idar-Oberstein

(Stephie Morawetz necklace)

The exhibition includes a selection of semester projects and final projects of the bachelor and master programs. It will be exhibited jewelery and gemstone work. Students at the University of Trier on campus Idar-Oberstein embark on the search for their place and their role as jewelry makers in today’s society. Because of the location Idar-Oberstein, a world trade center for gems, the use of the material gem is of particular importance.In addition, the experimental approach with other materials is explicitly promoted, since the development of a personal artistic expression is a priority objective of the studies.
For the exhibition a publication is published that now offers the opportunity to read statements from students, in particular relating to Gemstone. This topic gives the department of gemstone and jewelry design a unique position. We see this position represented by more than 20 nationalities, that are united by the group of students in Idar-Oberstein. For the team of the departement, it is a extreme pleasure to be working with such cultural diversity and to determine on a daily basis, how young people, for example from Korea and China, Israel and Iran, Pakistan and Russia are mutually supportive and work collaboratively on the issue of gemstone and jewelry design.

Working with stones
Pornrudee Boonyapan (Thailand), M.F.A. 3rd sem. Stone lives for itself and people try to use it according to their needs. But stone is stone.
Katja Köditz (Germany), M.F.A. 2nd sem. In Idar-Oberstein stones are bound fast together with the history of the town and its inhabitants. For me, dealing with the social questions and phenomena of our time and visualising these with jewellery and using stones also means me devoting myself to Idar-Oberstein’s identity.
Petr Dvorak (Czech Republic), M.F.A. 4th sem. Stone is a part of jewellery. Jewellery without stone is almost unthinkable. Stone is jewellery. Stone is something beautiful, the only colour we have from the earth. A stone is beautiful in itself, but you give it a shape, which wasn’t there before. The question is, whether this is beautiful. That depends on the beholder and is usually only recognised a century later.
Stephie Morawetz (Austria), M.F.A. 1st sem. I find stones really beautiful, but I can’t find a way in. Perhaps because they exist in the present and my pieces in the future. It is difficult to create a connection between the material I work with and the stone. They live in two different universes, in two different times. Maybe that will change when I colour my stones myself, through a procedure that is no longer natural.

On the significance of gemstones and jewellery in art
The debate, well known within our field, about whether the creation of gemstones and jewellery should be classed as craft, design or art has significantly contributed, in the context of the Bologna Process, to raising the profile of our department. Answering this central question of professional identity is the focus of current research within our field and department. Reconsidering the assignment of gemstones and jewellery as it is interpreted and understood today steers us to an ever-clearer position, which defines itself, amongst other means, by examining its relationships with neighbouring fields;
– The creation of gemstones and jewellery is not a craft. Although there is an intersection with the crafts’ central tenet of specialst craftsmanship, the contemporary focus differs.
–  The creation of gemstones and jewellery is not design. Although there is an intersection with design’s central tenet of fashionable aestheticization and the successful marketing of this, the contemporary focus differs.
–  The creation of gemstones and jewellery is not liberal art. Although there is a certain intersection with the liberal arts’ central tenet of “existing outside of oneself”, the contemporary focus differs.
Establishing this position is not intended to draw or sharpen demarcation lines, but to rethink the identity of jewellery creators within a wider context than the pre-existing criteria of other specialties, which are insufficient for our field.

EXPO ‘From the Coolest Corner’ – Designmuseum Danmark, Copenhagen (DK) – 28 Juin-15 Sept. 2013

From the Coolest Corner – Designmuseum Danmark

The touring exhibition ‘From the Coolest Corner – Nordic Jewellery’ comes to Designmuseum Danmark from Oslo and next stop is Helsinki, Tallinn, Gothenburg and Munich. A publication accompanies the exhibition. The opening is June 28, and alongside the opening at Designmuseum Danmark, the Copenhagen Jewelry Triennial is filling the city with exciting jewelry exhibitions.

From the Coolest Corner - Designmuseum Danmark  (Copenhagen, Denmark)  28-Jun-2013 - 15-Sep-2013    website: designmuseum.dk  mail: info@designmuseum.dk  [Kim Buck  Rings: Pumpous 2011]Kim Buck  Rings: Pumpous 2011

A large comprehensive exhibition shows what is happening on the Nordic jewellery scene in 2013. In light of the two successful exhibitions, shown in 1995 and 2001, Designmuseum Danmark has collaborated with Röhsska Museet in Gothenburg, The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design and Design Museum Helsinki to create a traveling exhibition that shows a large number of works, all created specifically for this occasion. An international jury has selected all the works and few are hand picked as guests of honour – including Kim Buck from Denmark.

It is not often, that jewellery is what comes to mind, when the citizens of Copenhagen pass by graffiti painted park benches and trash bins in the streets. But in the exhibition ‘From the Coolest Corner – Nordic Jewellery’ at Designmuseum Danmark a park bench and a trash bin is exactly what can be seen as brooches, birch wood trunks have been transformed into rings and metal wire has become pendants.

The exhibition shows selected jewellery from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Estonia and you can expect to see anything but traditional jewellery. The artists have in their own way reflected on and challenged the genre as well as the stereotype ideas of Nordic jewellery. The exhibition questions whether it is still possible to talk about a typical Nordic trend as it has been earlier or if the international orientation nowadays is so strong, that we no longer see any regional characteristics.

A jury has selected 61 artists to participate in the exhibition including five honorary artists. 
Denmark is represented by 7 artists:  Josephine Winther, Thorkild Harboe Thøgersen, Marie-Louise Kristensen, Kaori Juzu, Annette Dam, Julie Bach and the guest of honour Kim Buck.

Kim Buck’s works are characterised by a fond but critical attitude towards the varied creations of the jewellery industry. As in the series Bonsai, this sometimes results in jewellery that cannot be worn but serves instead as objects for contemplation. Bonsai, which is among Buck’s contributions to the exhibition, consists of five blocks of birch wood made into rings.

Where Kim Buck’s work is often inspired by traditional forms of jewellery, Marie-Louise Kristensen has instead been inspired by everyday objects. With an ironic subtitle she has created brooches for the exhibition in shape of for instance a park bench, a trash bin and scaffolding – images that most of Designmuseum Danmark’s visitors will recognise from the streets of Copenhagen.

The SNAKE or serpent was the symbol of royalty and deity in early Egyptian society. Victorian jewelry often used an entwined snake to symbolize infinity and eternal love. Over the years the snake has also come to symbolize sexuality, rebirth and wisdom. (morninggloryjewelry)

UNEXPECTED PLEASURES

The Art and Design of Contemporary Jewellery

A Design Museum, London touring exhibition

unexpected-pleasures-0.jpg

Bringing together almost 200 objects from around the world, Unexpected Pleasures celebrates the work of contemporary jewellers who have challenged the conventions of jewellery design.

Curated by jewellery designer and maker Dr. Susan Cohn, the exhibition offers a survey of contemporary jewellery presented through a number of themes: Worn Out – celebrating the experience of wearing jewellery, Linking Links – looking at the ways in which meaning and narratives are expressed in jewellery and A Fine Line – offering insights into the origins of contemporary jewellery today, highlighting key instigators of the contemporary jewellery movement.

The exhibition will feature prominent UK and international jewellers including Wendy Ramshaw, renowned for her complex geometric designs, Hans Stofer’s intricate wire form jewellery, Gijs Bakker’s conceptual adornments and delicate abstract pieces by Dorothea Pruhl.

« UNEXPECTED Pleasures, an exhibition of the world’s ugliest, loveliest, most intriguing contemporary jewellery, opened at the National Gallery of Victoria International yesterday.
 »Everything here is designed to be worn, » said guest curator and jewellery designer Susan Cohn.
Visitors took that as a challenge, moving through 180 dimly lit curiosities by the world’s most radical designers, trying to imagine what it would be like to wear a necklace of glass and ceramic dildos. Or a tubular  »veil » collar like a pearly plastic version of Ned Kelly’s helmet. Or a cluster of rusted bolts and nails on a silver  »Screw Ring ».
»After procreation and survival, our next instinct as humans is adornment, » Cohn said when asked,  »Why? »
 »Adornment is about attracting a mate, which in turn, is about procreation and survival. »
Some humans, however, obviously require more complex, intellectual adornments than others.  »Yes, some wearers will want something that speaks that way for them, » Cohn said. Among the exhibits was a vast choice of such expression, from the minimalist exquisitry of a grey sunray-pleated yoke, to a clump of small pale  »tumours », photographed bursting through a model’s frock. The latter was in a category of radical ideas.
NGV director Gerard Vaughan said the exhibition offered  »a fresh view of the many meanings associated with jewellery ».
The visiting director of London’s Design Museum, Deyan Sudjic, said it was the result of a  »long, drawn-out, cerebral process », and that is precisely how it felt.
Unexpected Pleasures: The Art and Design of Contemporary Jewellery, is a Design Museum, London, exhibition funded by the Joan and Peter Clemenger Trust.
It is free and runs until August 26, when it will travel to London. (Daily Life.com.au)
