Jessica Morillo - CORAZA/

CORAZA/ foto: Julio Gutierrez -

« aprender a hacer y deshacer el amor.
Pieza en construcción desde el 2014 al 2016. Proceso de Cortar-coser: unir/lastimar/marcar/: cicatriz-costra: herida abierta y cerrada
La costura como puente de unión, un puente es el vehículo entre dos partes, para unirlas, conectarlas, vincularlas.
La pieza presentada es parte de un proceso de trabajo de dos años que a modo ritual, lento, repetitivo fui desarrollando, cortando mis prendas, usadas/vividas con registro de mi cuerpo y de las experiencias transitadas, para luego volverlas a coser, sin pensar en un fin, sin pensar en que será luego de terminar.
Me servía como una práctica que calmaba un sentimiento interno doloroso de separación, estaba separada y buscaba de manera inconsciente generar el puente que vinculara el pasado y el presente para poder cerrar la herida.
Esta pieza es un exorcismo, una ofrenda, ha sido para mí un ritual su construcción, puntada tras puntada iba uniendo pero a la vez lastimando la piel de cada prenda. »

Pero finalmente, creo que he encontrado mejor : un GRITO, que sale del CORAZON, para todas las MUJERES DEL MUNDO

Jessica Morillo / Ansiosa Hormona - si eres una mujer fuerte .... Joyería contemporánea – coleccion GERMINAL / ANSIOSA HORMONA – arte y diseño

Si eres una mujer fuerte
protégete de las alimañas que querrán
almorzar tu corazón. Ellas usan todos los disfraces de los carnavales de la tierra:
se visten como culpas, como oportunidades, como precios que hay que pagar.
Te hurgan el alma; meten el barreno de sus miradas o sus llantos
hasta lo más profundo del magma de tu esencia,
no para alumbrarse con tu fuego
sino para apagar la pasión
la erudición de tus fantasías. Si eres una mujer fuerte
tienes que saber que el aire que te nutre
acarrea también parásitos, moscardones,
menudos insectos que buscarán alojarse en tu sangre
y nutrirse de cuanto es sólido y grande en ti.

No pierdas la compasión, pero témele a cuanto conduzca
a negarte la palabra, a esconder quién eres,
lo que te obligue a ablandarte
y te prometa un reino terrestre a cambio
de la sonrisa complaciente.

Si eres una mujer fuerte
prepárate para la batalla:
aprende a estar sola,
a dormir en la más absoluta oscuridad sin miedo,
a que nadie te tire sogas cuando ruja la tormenta,
a nadar contra corriente.

Entrénate en los oficios de la reflexión y el intelecto.
Lee, hazte el amor a ti misma, construye tu castillo,
rodéalo de fosos profundos,
pero hazle anchas puertas y ventanas.

Es menester que cultives enormes amistades,
que quienes te rodean y quieran sepan lo que eres,
que te hagas un círculo de hogueras y enciendas en el centro de tu habitación
una estufa siempre ardiente donde se mantenga el hervor de tus sueños.

Si eres una mujer fuerte
protégete con palabras y árboles
e invoca la memoria de mujeres antiguas.

Has de saber que eres un campo magnético
hacia el que viajarán aullando los clavos herrumbados
y el óxido mortal de todos los naufragios.
Ampara, pero ampárate primero.
Guarda las distancias.
Constrúyete. Cuídate.
Atesora tu poder.
Defiéndelo.
Hazlo por ti.
Te lo pido en nombre de todas nosotras.

Gioconda Belli
(Nicaragua, 1948)

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 ….

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! »

 

a WOW year !!!!! again, CONGRATULATIONS !! :-) Enregistrer
