Jewellery artists from 22 countries all over the world come together in a memorial exhibition for Manfred Bischoff who passed away a year ago. At some point or other, they have all been taught by Manfred at Alchimia, contemporary jewellery school in Florence, and have each submitted one piece to the exhibition that honours a great teacher.
German born Manfred Bischoff lived in Tuscany in a house that was in itself a piece of exquisite art. Its magical interior made a natural and perfect framework for his work that has been called by many names: sensual, poetic, lyrical, great, intimate, strong, beautiful, satirical and always surprising. He worked in 22K gold, as pure as he could manage and still maintain a rigidity in the metal that allowed him to execute his ideas in delicate and well crafted pieces, often accompanied with subtle pink coral and drawings.
His dedication to the language of jewellery and his visions were most likely one of the reasons that the Alchimia school managed to become known and respected internationally in a relatively short time span.

The teacher
« As a student at Alchimia, you never really met Manfred until the third year. He was a giant figure who arrived to the narrow street in Florence on Tuesdays. He spent time with the older students, watched the world from behind his sunglasses when he leaned onto the wall at coffee breaks, and then he vanished again.
It was not until you were there yourself – in your final year – that you met the myth and began to appreciate his capacity to engage in your work and to show you how you might develop it. He was a surprisingly selfless teacher, and during critiques in the small classroom he managed to create a space for you and him to engage in a dialogue about your work that was stripped of second agendas and based solely on how he could help you to become a better artist.
It is only later, you come to understand how exceptionally truthful and helpful he tried to be in order to make you grow as a person and as an artist. »

EXPO ‘Matters of Life & Death’ – Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, Saltaire (UK) – 7 Juill.-25 Sept. 2011

Matters of Life and Death

An exhibition that explores the responses of nine international jewellery artists to the proliferation of natural disasters and man-made destruction in our world

Matters of Life and Death includes sculptural work, jewellery and film, curated in a way that makes religious, political, artistic and fashion statements asking questions about life and death, light and dark, sobriety and humour.
(Neckpiece by Agnes Larsson)

Visitors will not only be confronted by the striking jewellery they will be provoked into considering the following: How would it feel to have a wolf trap clasped around your wrist?


Sophie Hanagarth, this year’s winner of the Herbert Hofmann prize, the world’s most prestigious contemporary jewellery award, presents Trap, wrought iron bracelets that resemble wolf traps with sharp, articulated claws. Says Hanagarth, ‘They are jaws, dentures or mouths worn on the arm. They absorb us, eat us or suck us. By the mere act of putting on these bracelets, our hand is gobbled down, devoured, an extremity of the human body is captured.’ The pieces are brutally beautiful surprisingly sensual and extremely wearable!
Sophie Hanagarth – ‘Trap’ (teeth) bracelet in forged iron


Do you dare wear Carbon and Horsehair?
Agnes Larsson combines these unlikely yet elemental materials to create dramatic neckpieces. Carbon is a basic material existing in all living things but which we also consider to be dead, burned and charred whilst horsehair is a natural material that has connections to the body and life. Agnes says, ‘In my pieces I see opposites like alive and dead, darkness and light, surface and depth, fragility and strength.’

Can severed swords become jewels to adorn the body?
Bernhard Lehner describes his jewellery as ‘symbolic disarmament’: weapons deconstructed – literally sawn apart – and then reformed as pieces of provacative jewellery, instruments of destruction recreated as desirable decoration for the body.

But Matters of Life and Death isn’t all about doom and gloom. If you’re worried that our exhibition is going to bring you down, we’ve also selected jewellers whose work is energetic, creative and joyful to lift the spirits including colourful post apocalyptic mosaic tree brooches by Samantha Queen and vibrant, creative avant garde work by Lina Peterson that injects a literal ray of sunshine.

Finally, humourous highlights courtesy of Akiko Kurihara whose playful punning pieces charm and engage, and Peter Vermandere with gargoyle inspired pearl pins enigmatically titled ‘emotions for the advanced’.

Peter Vermandere- ‘Freestyle Atomics’ brooch made from parts of the Expo 1958 Atomium building in Brussels. Aluminium with garnet crystals on matrix 

Says curator Kath Libbert, ‘I wanted to curate an exhibition that reflects on destruction both natural and man-made, as this is a huge preoccupation in our world at the moment, but also an exhibition that explores the possibilities for regeneration, hope and humour. We’re also inviting visitors to be photographed wearing a piece that moves, excites, revolts…and to record their response on our ever growing Chain of Thought which will become an integral part of the exhibition. We hope you will feel compelled to make a visit, it’s a matter of life and death! ’

There will be a Collectors Event with keynote speakers to accompany the exhibition in September. For details please contact the gallery.

Firenze – la scuola di gioelleria ALCHIMIA – Mostra juin 2009

Les jeunes arrivent ! et ATTENTION! … ils sont doués …. !!!

Firenze. Il design del gioiello alla Galleria Alessandro Bagnai. ‘Outsider Project’ incontra la scuola di gioelleria Alchimia. (juin 2009)

« Per chi desidera distinguersi ornando il proprio corpo con originali creazioni artistiche alla Galleria Alessandro Bagnai dal 12 al 30 Giugno sono in mostra una serie di gioelli ideati e realizzati da 12 studenti della scuola ALCHIMIA di Firenze.
Si tratta di spille, orecchini, bracciali e collane composti da vari materiali: legno, carta, rame, plastica, etc. Tra assemblaggio, pittura e decorazione prendono vita forme e volumi stravaganti che a tratti rendono difficile comprendere il loro utilizzo. Niente hanno di fazioso e sofisticato. Alcuni si compongono su linee morbide ed essenziali, altri hanno forme più “colorate” adatte a coloro a cui piace farsi notare.
Quello che è interessante è che dietro a ciascun oggetto vige un messaggio. I gioielli della tedesca Anne Wiedau parlano di vita urbana (sono pezzetti di legno raccolti per strada), quelli della coreana Eun Jae Baek ricalcano forme della natura come l’albero; altri fanno riferimento al ricordo o catturano momenti di vita quotidiana come nel caso di Marina Elenskaya.
Queste creative elaborazioni dimostrano come l’arte possa risiedere non solo nelle cosa da contemplare ma anche da indossare o più in generale da usare. Come afferma Bruno Munari: “Non ci deve essere un arte staccata dalla vita: cose belle da guardare e cose brutte da usare. Se quello che usiamo ogni giorno è fatto con arte (non a caso o a capriccio) non avremo niente da nascondere
Anne Wiedau  –  Marina Elenskaya

Con il programma Outsider Project nato nel 2008 la galleria si rivolge all’ “arte pratica” o meglio all’ “inter-mondo” – come lo definisce l’ideatrice del progetto Antonella Villanova – quel luogo “outsider” in cui si incontrano arte e design, funzionalità ed artisticità.
La scuola di gioielleria ALCHIMIA, realtà situata nel cuore di Firenze, offre una valida formazione artigianale e culturale nel campo dell’oreficeria contemporanea e soprattutto un interscambio (ancora raro nel panorama fiorentino) con realtà internazionali.

Oltre a vantare l’insegnamento del famoso artista orafo Manfred Bischoff gode infatti di importanti collaborazioni con Accademie, Istituti di Formazione ed Università, in Italia e all’estero.

EXPO ‘curiOsando’ – Galleria d’arte Il Vicolo, Genova (Italy) – 7-27 Mai 2010

« CuriOsando », mostra di gioielli contemporanei realizzati da 13 giovani artiste provenienti dalla scuola di gioielleria “Alchimia” di Firenze.

«  Punti di vista, stati d’animo, forme e materiali inconsueti diventano pezzi unici o piccole produzioni che si fanno protagonisti di un percorso personale ed unico. Legno, silicone, fotografie, seta, fili di rame, fimo, prendono forma insieme ai metalli nobili trasformandosi in inaspettati ornamenti per il corpo e forme espressive. Il gioiello contemporaneo diviene strumento di dialogo tra il corpo di chi lo indossa ed il mondo circostante, contiene elementi del mondo dell’arte, del design, della moda, pur rimanendo un linguaggio autonomo. »

Artist list:
Daniela Boieri, Maria Brossa, Monica Buongiovanni, Margherita de Martino Norante, Katie Gruber, Eugenia Ingegno, Michelle Kraemer, Doris Maninger, Lucia Massei, Geri Nishi, Angela O’ Keefe, Marzia Rossi, Camilla Teglio.
