Caitie Sellers and Demitra Thomloudis: Connected Construct

Inspired by the Houston landscape, Thomloudis and Sellers intimately examine and transform their surroundings through the lens of jewelry, mapping, and drawing. Their work observes moments between materials, time, and place that ultimately interacts with the body as site and collectively produces a snapshot of the sprawling Houston landscape.

EXPO ‘ONoff’ – SooLOCAL, Minneapolis (USA) – 24 Avril 2014

jeudi 24 avril 2014 –  18:00 – 21:00 (CDT)

 ONoff Exhibition.

One would expect Jewelry artists to be limited to objects of personal adornment, but many contemporary makers in this field have gone beyond the constraints of functionality to pursue conceptual interests in areas such as photography, kinetics and sculpture.This exhibition seeks makers whose work demands exploration both on and off of the body. What happens when a metalsmith goes beyond the boundaries of the wearable? How does the work change when function and jewelry mechanics no longer need to be considered? Can the conversation continue seamlessly from a necklace into an installation or sculpture? The exhibition will feature two works by each artist selected: one piece of jewelry or wearable object and one piece that shifts in scale, medium or material in order to further investigate their ideas.Juror: Susie GanchSusie Ganch is currently Associate Professor and Head of the Metals Program at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. She is also Director of Radical Jewelry Makeover, an international traveling community jewelry mining and recycling project. Exhibition Organizers: Sarah Holden and Kat Cole

ENVIRONNEMENT MODERNE

…. environnement urbain : travaux, béton, ferrailles, échafaudages, palissades, barrières, outillages, machineries, matériaux de construction, lignes, cartes, plans, routes, échangeurs, sens interdits …….. démolition, reconstruction ….  tout cet environnement, même hostile ou menaçant, fascine ….. un moment, le mouvement est arrêté, « photographié », pensé, intériorisé puis réinterprété selon chacun, retraduit, « miniaturisé » pour devenir bijou … une construction nouvelle, en quelque sorte ….

Linda Hughes Square Neckpiece and bracelet

« Colour plays a very important part in your jewellery and it is often bold and bright. Would you consider this a signature style or do see yourself moving towards a different palette in the future?
The palette relates directly to street signage but I do feel free to incorporate other colours and don’t feel inhibited by it.
What ignited your interest in signs? Was it marked by a particular experience or moment?
Some of the urban landscape in Australia seems particularly contrived, like a theatre set. A mixture of international influences all mixed up, often without connecting to the environment. My attention is drawn to signs as ‘street furniture’ if you like, ‘props’. «

Linda Hughes – Necklace

« In her new body of work, contemporary jeweller Linda Hughes explores the ‘stripe’, historically favoured as a metonym for danger, exclusion and as a device to attract attention. Hazard signage, ubiquitous in the urban landscape, changes when placed on the body as jewellery. In this exhibition, Hughes applies the visual language of the stripe to the sculptural form of the wearable. Displayed against as a series of graphic backdrops, the work explores the tension between body and environment, critiquing the complex theatre of public space. »

Linda Hughesnecklace  – « It’s got legs » exhibition

« Shared Zone, is both the culmination of Linda Hughes master’s research and her first solo exhibition.
Hughes utilises the familiar urban language of invisible everyday objects such as road signs, posts and hazard markings. Juxtaposing these symbols on the body she uses them to define space and create landscape. Her work invites the wearer to become a part of the “theater of the wearable” that arises when the brooches, neckpieces and bangles are placed so as to interact and create their roles – transforming the body into a stage. »

Benita Dekel, Massconstruction – silver & concrete (ciment)

« Benita Dekel, a graduate of the Department of Jewelry Design at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design (Israël), developed a series of jewelry pieces that combine silver with concrete. The results of the combination of concrete, which we usually associate with heavy, industrial construction, and delicate constructions in silver is that despite being made of concrete the pieces do not appear heavy. The shapes of the pieces, which are very familiar, almost as though they have been taken from various construction sites, manage to surprise both in their shape and new function«
