TROPHIES // IN THE REIGN OF COYOTE
The hunt is a ritual; through gathering, searching, and collecting we create amulets, myths, and trophies. The works of these jewelers are rooted in these traditions; they look to nature and translate what they see.To hunt is to gather, to search, to collect. Through hunting, making, the weaving of stories, we are able to resist modernity’s denial of belief, and to keep our ties with the natural world. There is a primal, universal longing for myth, for an understanding of the immeasurable power of nature, and an allure in conquering, transforming, becoming. The hunt is a ritual, a way to insert ourselves into an ages-old cycle. In hunting we take on the role of maker, turning one thing into another. In making we are shamans, translating worlds, perspectives, identity.These jewelers distinguish themselves through their sensitive treatment of nature. Their work utilizes the material language of the trophy through the use of animal imagery and materials. The transformations they wrought, and the stories they weave, set them apart from other makers and unify them through aesthetic and conceptual application. In the Reign of Coyote references a collection of stories about the earth’s becoming, fables of animal and human relationships. The work of these artists looks back to a time when we, as humans, turned directly to nature for guidance, sustenance, and support.

Jane Dodd works in metal, wood, bone, shell and makes pieces that investigate storytelling and narrative. She is particularly interested in exploring a dialogue between nature and culture.
Marta MattssonSwooping work by Märta Mattsson  for TROPHIES
  Märta Mattsson « Märta Mattsson   sees beauty in things that other people find strange or are even repulsed by. She becomes fascinated when there is something you do not want to see and by the feeling you get when you do not want to look at something, yet you still do. Her jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion. »
Sleek work by Tanel Veenre Jewellery for TROPHIESSleek work by Tanel Veenre  for TROPHIES
 Tanel Veenre  Tanel Veenre ‘s jewels take one on a journey that starts from the depths of the sea, continues on through coral reefs, past dancing sea horses and then on to the cultivation of silkworms. The voyage ends in a cosmic cloud.
Dark work by Lore Langendries for TROPHIESDark work by Lore Langendries for TROPHIES
Her research interests include the interaction between craft and industry, between unique and serial with a particular focus on (re)production, digital technology, tactility, the behaviour of materials and the subjective role of the maker. In her recent series, Hunacturing, Langendries is questioning the nature of reproduction via a combination of natural materials, mechanical treatment and the human touch.
 Aliyah Gold -  Aliyah Gold 
Animal imagery and animal-based materials have been used in jewelry dating back to the first civilizations. Gold challenges herself to create jewelry that contains the essence of an animal rather than merely a representation.
 Mallory Weston (USA)  Mallory Weston 
She works with a variety of medium including metal, fiber, concrete, and spray-paint creating bold, compelling, and interactive wearable art. Currently, she is exploring snake imagery, symbolism, and serpent dichotomies within
her work.

 Anna Talbot  Anna Talbot
Anna Talbot’s jewellery is inspired by fairy tales, nursery rhymes, songs and stories. Wolves, deer, trees, forests and Little Red Riding Hood are all central elements in her universe, and they don’t necessarily stick to their traditional roles.

SCHMUCK 2014 – 66th International Trade Fair, Munich – 12-18 Mars 2014

Schmuck ‘2014
55th Special Jewellery Show
66th International Trade Fair, Munich
de 12 Mar a 18 Mar 2014

 

This special exhibition is the eldest exhibition of contemporary jewellery work in the world. It takes place since 1959 every year during the International Trade Fair in March. Except the transport cost until Munich the participation in the special show is free of charge for you. Three contributions of Schmuck 2013 will be awarded with the Herbert Hofmann Prize. The prize commemorates Dr. Herbert Hofmann, the founder of the special show in 1959. In addition the jury of the Bavarian States Prize will look at the works in the special show. The Bavarian States Prize is awarded to 10 contri-bution of applied art within all contribution of the International Trade Fair. This prize is awarded with 5.000€.

More than 552 goldsmiths from 43 countries around the globe applied to participate in the special “Schmuck” (Jewellery) show at the International Crafts Fair in Munich next year. This great interest once again confirms the importance of this event in the context of contemporary jewellery-making and the significance attached to it worldwide. An above-average number of applications were received this year from Australia, Japan and Taiwan, but also from New Zealand and Argentina, the latter having been among the applicants for only a few years now. The selection for 2014 was made especially interesting thanks to the many new exhibitors nominated by the curator Jorunn Veiteberg of Copenhagen. Unusually, “Jewellery 2014” features over 25 new exhibitors, who will be represented in this renowned exhibition for the first time.

For the year 2014, a total of 66 participants from 25 nations were invited to exhibit. Numerically most strongly represented are goldsmiths from Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Denmark and Sweden. The applicants grow younger by the year, an indicator that even before or immediately after finishing their training goldsmiths seek to compete in our special show, present their work to an interested public, experts, gallery owners and museum curators, and rapidly find their way into the jewellery avant-garde. “Jewellery” is an important venue for making a name for oneself in international goldsmiths’ circles, establishing contacts, and not least, witnessing the award of the prestigious Herbert Hofmann Prize on Saturday.

The special “Jewellery” show is characterized by the choice of certain themes which, in the eyes of curator Jorunn Veiteberg, represent salient traits of current jewellery design. As signs of our times and selection criteria, she sees found objects of metal or wood, things that bear definite marks of use, materials that speak an expressive, earthy language, forms and structures reminiscent of architecture, as well as masks, a tendency to mysticism, and forceful color schemes.

Honored as next year’s Modern Classic will be Dorothea Prühl, a goldsmith who lives in Halle. A teacher at Burg Giebichenstein Art College, she not only helped shape an entire generation of young goldsmiths but, over and above her teaching activity, has created an admirable, original oeuvre that holds a very special place within contemporary jewellery design.

Curator of “Jewellery 2014” is Jorunn Veiteberg, a Norwegian art historian who lives in Copenhagen. An arts journalist and exhibition curator, Veiteberg has taught since 2002 at the National Academy in Bergen, Norway. Since 2013 she has been guest professor at the University of Göteborg, Sweden, and chairwoman of the Norwegian Crafts Association. She has published in the fields of contemporary jewellery and ceramics. Veiteberg says it was a great honor for her to make the selection for “Jewellery 2014.” She was especially impressed by the quality of the submissions and their international range. For her as a Scandinavian, it was an enriching experience to see so many submissions from South Korea, Japan, Argentina, the U.S., and many other countries from around the world.

The Handwerkskammer organizes the special shows Exempla, Talente, Modern Masters and Schmuck at the International Handwerksmesse München with the Herbert-Hofmann-Award 2014 ceremony on Saturday 15th March at 4 p.m. We will show in our Galerie Handwerk the exhibition WUNDERRUMA – Jewellery from New Zealand.

irony forest
Der Wald ist gleichsam ein konzentrierter Raum der Naturgegenstände, zugleich aber auch ein Lebensraum, wo Tiere, Pflanzen und Zivilisationen ihre Lebenswurzel fassen. Er ist auch der materielle Raum, in dem die Sehnsucht der modernen Menschen nach der Natur gestillt werden kann. Die Holzbalken, die als Produkt der Abholzung des Waldes entstehen und für die Bauarbeit verwendet werden, werden im Ausstellungsraum wieder zu einer Baumgruppe arrangiert. Das Phänomen der modernen Gesellschaft, in der Wälder produziert werden, damit sie abgeholzt werden können, findet darin seinen besonderen Ausdruck: nämlich als Ironie. Mit diesen Schmuckarbeiten möchten wir zeigen, welche Beziehung wir in einer solchen Gesellschaft zur Natur haben können.
