Take a HORSE, get a conversation piece …….

Take a HORSE, carefully cut it in pieces, and you get a neck-piece ….. no, a conversation-piece …..

for my part, I was fan of  THIS « Horses » ! :

The “Innocent” project gives me the chance to express an issue I am very much concerned with: the abuse against animals. The plastic toys are a way of representing an innocence that can only imply the horrible things that could / might have happened. I cut the animal toys the way butchers do, whilst others I use in twisted positions. After that I melt them, creating situations that I imagine they end up in. I paint them in lively colors that are not specific to those animals and this way the first impression of the audience is of a happy piece of jewelry and only then, after a closer examination, they truly see the animal and its suffering. Most of them are hand painted so that every brush stroke I make allows me to connect with that animal and feel it’s pain. The electroformed pieces represent the animals that live in cold metal cages, while the silk represents a natural material that stands for blood (red silk) and the darkness of the night (black silk). By creating more feminine pieces of jewelry I am trying to nurture those animals’ suffering.
1% of all money made from selling these pieces of jewelry will be donated to an animal shelter.
Materials: plastic toys, electroformed, alpaca, silver, paint, varnish, onyx, silk, pigments, copper, gold leaf. Izabella Petrut

EXPO ‘Telling Tales’ – Art House gallery, Mevasseret Zion (Israel) – 31 Janv.- 28 Fevr. 2014

« Telling Tales« , curated by Jennifer Navva Milliken & Yael Friedman -

Narratives in Contemprary Metal and Jewelry Art

The exhibition presents new works by 22 artists who work primarily in metals, silversmithing, or conceptual art jewelry. Participating artists responded to a curatorial call for artistic interpretations of the stories and fables that have shaped and influenced them. What happens when artists translate the world’s oldest tales into works of art ? The exhibition explores the role of fairy tales, legends, myths, and fables in shaping cultural mores and values, and the influence these time-honored narratives — ranging from the fantastical to the pedagogical to the sternly moralistic — have had on our contemporary existence.

Noa Liran's "Hansel and Gretl" .................Noa Liran‘s « Hansel and Gretl » is a solution to the design problem faced by Grimm’s infamous brother-sister team. Answering the curatorial call for interactions with non-precious materials, the artist meticulously wrapped popcorn with foil chocolate wrappers, protecting the make-shift trail markers from the hungry birds of the forest. As the pieces accumulated, Liran strung them together, continuing right up until the opening of the exhibition. Her work, as much about the tale it serves as it is about processes of inspiration and creation, illustrates parallels between storytelling and art-making

anat golan White Steed 1  Anat Golan – « Off with Her Head, » from this series of 3 wearable medallions -
In her work for « Telling Tales, » Anat Golan investigated the tropes of the hero and the heroine in legends and fairy tales and found the gap between archetypal standards of character (particularly in female prototypes) and reality to be unsettlingly divergent. Identifying 2 heroines and a villainess based on their particular virtues and flaws, she created medals of honor for each; the resulting composite personality offers a more authentic portrait of an idiosyncratic contemporary heroine, who — like fairy-tale heroes — has overcome obstacles, suffered loss, and survived to tell the tale.
