Amani Bou Dargham (Alchimia) is selected for Talente with her series “WHAT REMAINS?”

[Talente-Award presentation 2015 : 14 March 2015  16:30, Halle B1 Main stage of IHM (Internationalen Handwerksmesse Munich)]

« “what remains?” is a reflection about the self we create and we communicate to others. »

“We face the deepest emotions that are hidden away,
they slip through our hands and through our head.
They present themselves as a truth.
A truth that the eyes did not want to see nor the mind to think of.
A truth that reveals all the hidden remains and presents them as a reminder of your essence.
You are a carrier.
You are the carried.
You construct the link in between.”

Amani Bou Dargham (selected for Talente) with her series “WHAT REMAINS?”  Amani Bou Dargham – serie “WHAT REMAINS ?”

The steel hooks that are forged around my body are the carrier of an ‘ephemeral’ object.
They are shaped around it and exist only because of it.
However the hooks are ever lasting while the source disappears.
One will remain with an empty steel rod to carry as a reminder of what was inside it.

PS : in BLUE see the posts abouth their jewellery !

« This year the exhibition is characterized by innovative, very different works in glass, ceramics and jewellery as well as by a large selection of textiles. In addition to works that are inspired by nature – whether by plant forms or by the atmosphere and moods of the landscape – works are to be seen that are dealing with the city and try to translate its poetry and problems into a visual mode. The appeal of surfaces and the development of new techniques to enhance the range of possibilities resulted in very different works. Other topics are the definition and the meaning of home and country, problems of environmental protection and the relationship of new technical possibilities and traditional craftsmanship. The combination of various unusual ideas, of different conceptual and aesthetic approaches results in a very special and fascinating exhibition.
As in the last years, many applications arrived for Talente from the field of jewellery. The young artists show a special interest in the techniques and ideas of the collage. Impressive are the contributions of the students from Idar-Oberstein (Germany) working with and interpreting the material stone which results in very different works with diverse concerns but all of quite archaic character (Sharaeh Aghaei, Iran; Elvira Golombosi, Ukraine; Tala Yuan, China). The works deal with issues of homeland, strangeness and identity, the unconscious and magic forces being inherent to the objects as well as with the importance and the condition of civilization-creating elements in the present. All in all, this year again the general interest in the combination of different materials and for the connection of specially made parts and found objects is evident. These elements can be created into architecturally-style arrangements, extended into long tubes, combined with materials such as perspex glass or be gathered into subtle, poetic compositions. Besides the major inspiration from natural forms technical ideas play a significant rôle. Katie Collins (USA/Australia) for example works from steel collapsible necklaces and bracelets that present different stages and are inspired by machines. Unusual are Karin Gyllerfelt’s (Sweden) works in which photos of richly draped textiles are applied on metal surfaces causing a vexing trompe l’œil-effect. By means of technique and motifs she hints at the themes of transformation and transience. Jing Yang (China/Germany) deals in her « vases » not only with gender-based stereotypes of her native China, but also with the playful analysis of forms by dividing a vase shape into compartments reflecting in her pendants on the relationship of these parts.  » (Klimt02)

 

TALENTE is an international competition for young craftsmen and women in design and technology. This special show reflects the ideas of young people in the context of an experimental approach to materials and craft techniques. The best entries are awarded the highly sought-after TALENTE prize.

Young artist working in the applied arts and technology will have the opportunity to show their work in the international competition TALENTE 2015 in Munich, Germany from 11th to 17th March 2015. The aim of TALENTE is to promote young people with a particular manual talent and to show an interested audience the enormous potential which lies in the new generation in crafts and trades.

Alchimia Graduation show 2014 – « TOUCH » – Florence (Italy) – 19-26 Juin 2014

Alchimia Graduation show 2014

Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School proudly presents Touch, Graduation Show 2014.

Official Opening with cocktail and DJ set Thursday, June 19, 6pm.
The exhibition will remain open until Thursday, June 26, from 6 pm to 9 pm.
An art jewellery exhibition that is the culmination of this year’s graduate students.
TOUCH - graduation show ALCHIMIA 2014 - 19-26 june 2014
For this occasion, twelve students have based their development on personal experiences. Individual matters discuss universal subjects; in correlation to the body as a form of function and space. As a result, each body of work materializes these personalities. Hands spoke in replacement of words. While unspoken, the act of making became the way of realization. Touch is an invitation to feel. The students will be present during the whole duration of the show to talk about their work.
Curated by: Doris Maniger, Lucia Massei, Ruudt Peters.
