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.

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.

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.

EXPO ‘Staring : in HINDSIGHT’ – Die Neue Sammlung (Danner-Rotunde), Munich (DE) – 14-20 Mars 2014

SCHMUCK 2014 – Munich – 12-18 Mars 2014

Staring : in HINDSIGHT / SUNY NP METAL

Vernissage 14 Mars, 19 Uhr

STARING: The State University of New York at New Paltz

THE METAL PROGRAM AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT NEW PALTZ IN COOPERATION WITH DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG – THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN MUSEUM MUNICH

Designed in response to the physical space that houses the exhibition, in Staring is an exercise in looking, finding, seeing and knowing.
This gallery, informally referred to as ‘under the stairs’, is an interstitial space – formed by the galleries that surround it. It is a negative of a positive, the leftover from a functional form. It lies in-between, forming the way one considers what lies on the other side of the concrete divide, what is revealed and what is hidden. As the risers and runners of multiple staircases surround the viewer, form becomes rhythmic, linear texture, closing in underfoot and overhead. In this space one is simultaneously astonished, disoriented, and mystified. While not originally conceived as an exhibition space, through imaginative thinking it became so.
As a marginal space it is not confined by traditional boundaries or conceptions. This notion of working the margin is akin to the creative strategies taught at New Paltz. Students are expected to engage the traditions of jewelry and hollowware, working within the field’s “architecture”, but not to mimic it; in dialogue through making they question function, value, and relevance to our somatic, conceptual and incorporeal experience. We look backward and forward at the same time, challenging and promoting the practice of making.
Provoked by the space itself, we ask the viewer to consider what it means to be ‘under the stairs’. In a domestic setting it is a space to keep things that are only used occasionally, or perhaps forgotten. It is a psychic space, the space of the Odradek, a space where fear of the unknown is manifested. Within this space discoveries are made, surprises can be found, and occasionally we lose even ourselves.

DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG

Talk on 16 March, 11 Uhr : Pravu Mazumdar: Understanding Surfaces. On Jewellery and Identity.
Pinakothek der Moderne. www.die-neue-sammlung.de

Human surfaces are hybrid objects involving biological and cultural elements like dress, makeup, jewellery, gait, skin, posture, voice. Contemporary societies manifest not only surfaces of products, but also human surfaces functioning as ‘packaging’ and emitting discourses on interiority that place humans within limits and define their individuality.
However, the surfaces are not only readable. They are also produced on a daily basis, not only by the individuals themselves or the global beauty industry at large, but also a whole political machinery of identity, gleaning certain constant, measurable and recognisable traits of individuality from the surface discourses, documenting them in passports and identity cards and locking in modern individuals within the shell of their identity. Modern jewellery – in its contemporary, critical manifestations and its inherent tendency of breaching tradition – can break open the shell of identity and involve individuals in an open play of enhancement and change of masks. It can indeed be understood as a means of counteracting the pressure towards identity in daily life in modern societies.
Such ideas will be presented with examples and images from the area of contemporary jewellery art.

Theresa Hauser
Theresa Hauser - « gold chain » necklace – crocheted yarn, sterling silver
FIRST MERIT AWARD
« the gold chain necklace is an iconic style of necklace that i found to be suited for reproduction in this manner. yarn and thread are used in place of the original precious metal. this alteration inherently conveys a sense of playfulness and fun, but attempts to have as much appeal as the original inspiration. after all, the point is for them to be enjoyed »

Nicole Jacquard
Nicole Jacquard – ‘Wallpaper ‘ -  Silver, fine silver, gypsum powder, silk thread- 2009
« Within my work I am interested in exploring the themes of; the souvenir, ornamentation, memory, longing, and nostalgia associated with the collection of personal objects. I am interested in how ordinary everyday objects transcend the mundane through the association of memory thus becoming personal and precious. Overall my work draws reference to objects that I’ve collected, objects that were hand made or mass produced but due to their limited use for special occasions, they became precious and personal with meaning. By employing the use of new technologies and their materials, my work also explores the ideas of what it means to be made by hand in contrast to mass production and the future of mass customization. »

« I love creating worlds in which a piece to wear can be found…. metal … as a faithfull friend…. allows me to implement wireline architectures and large « self-carried » objects. »

Vincent Pontillo
Vincent Pontillo -  ‘For Saraswati’ – Sterling Silver, 23 Karat Gold Leaf. Forged, Fabricated
« « I will never look like that. » Usually a phrase which is heard, but most commonly said responding to a billboard.
I am attracted to the role this « billboard » plays in my life. Utilizing metalsmithing techniques and traditional jewelry form, I socially and conventionally reinterpret commercialism through adornment. Rendering each piece non-functional, I seek to express a personal commentary of the marketeers’ opportunistic approach to unattainable idealism through ornament. »

Lorena Lazard

David Choi
David Choi – brooch – fabricated steel
« The physicality of steel is cold and rigid. It is fascinating to turn this man-made material into something warm and beautiful. My focus is in this transition from constraint to plasticity. I construct complex forms from multiple elements. My work represents the seamless relationship between order and chaos. To me, perfection is an illusion. The more I deform it, the more it can represent my definition/sense of reality. Jewelry is a large subject in a small object; what animates me is the sentiment of the beautiful. »

Sung-Yeoul Lee
Sung-Yeoul LEE – ‘Connection II’ -  Sterling silver, Cable wire / Fabricated
« My goal is associating the idea of intimacy in jewelry objects to the body while the cord functions as a vehicle which conveys metaphorical meaning of connection. When the piece is on the body, the cord seems to penetrate or bind the wearer. I feel that it expresses the physical and conceptual connection between piece and wearer. It is also very meaningful in promoting the intimacy between wearer and the work itself. »

Liaung Chung Yen
Liaung Chung YEN - ‘Stone Pathway’ – Bracelet – By using the gold wire to create the structure and the feel of the natural stone, I create the stone pathway. Along the pathway, you can find some diamonds which imply the treasures during the journey. Hand fabricated, soldered and stone setting. 18k gold, diamonds
