EXPO ‘Die Renaissance des Emaillierens’ – Galerie Handwerk, Munich (DE) – 9 mars-14 avril 2012

Sonderöffnung Die Renaissance des Emaillierens – Internationaler Schmuck und Gerät, — Galerie Handwerk

Das Emaillieren gehört zu den klassischen Gold- und Silberschmiedetechniken. Das seit über 3500 Jahren bekannte Verfahren stellt eine der ältesten und haltbarsten Methoden dar, Farbe auf Metall aufzubringen und den betreffenden Gegenstand, Schmuck oder Gerät, damit besonders zu akzentuieren.

In der zeitgenössischen Gold- und Silberschmiedeszene hat das Emaillieren in den 1970er und 1980er Jahren eher ein Schattendasein geführt. Seit einigen Jahren erlebt die Technik eine Renaissance. Die Galerie Handwerk in München nimmt dieses Phänomen zum Anlass einer Ausstellung, zu der 41 Gestalter aus 15 Ländern eingeladen wurden. Gezeigt werden Schmuck und Gerät.

Seit den 1990er Jahren spielt Email im Avantgardeschmuck zunehmend eine größere Rolle. Dabei wird mit den unterschiedlichsten Verfahren, Zellenschmelz, Grubenschmelz, Fensteremail, gearbeitet und oftmals auch experimentiert. Viele Goldschmiede haben ihre ganz eigene, persönliche Herangehensweise gefunden. Auffallend ist, dass das Verfahren sehr unkonventionell gehandhabt wird und ganz offensichtlich nicht nur die dem Email klassisch zugeschriebenen Effekte – Farbe, Transparenz, Leuchtkraft – gesucht werden.

Der Aspekt, durch Email Farbe auf das Metall aufzubringen, ist nicht mehr entscheidend, längst sind Lack und Farbe gebräuchlich. Nicht, dass die farblichen und malerischen Möglichkeiten des Emaillierens ihre Wichtigkeit verloren hätten, doch scheint heute die Auseinandersetzung mit der Oberfläche und das Spiel mit ihren reizvollen haptischen Qualitäten der gemeinsame Nenner zu sein.

Email kann transparent, glatt, in kräftigen Farben leuchtend sein und sich durch eine makellose, perfekte Oberfläche auszeichnen. Häufig wird aber auch eine matte oder körnige Oberfläche wie bei Pigmentpulver gesucht, oder die Oberflächen sind aufgebrochen und wirken wie korrodiert.

Beim Gerät hat sich die Verwendung von Email in den letzten 20 Jahren grundlegend geändert. Eine sinnliche Oberflächengestaltung, die ihre Ästhetik häufig in schlichten Formen und monochromen Farben sucht, hat das Figürliche und Ornamentale verdrängt.

Die Ausstellung in der Galerie Handwerk versucht, die unterschiedlichsten Positionen zeitgenössischer Schmuckkünstler zum Thema Email vorzustellen und dabei auf die Aktualität dieser alten Goldschmiedetechnik hinzuweisen. Sie wird wenige Tage vor Beginn der Internationalen Schmuckschau eröffnet und ist ein Teil der umfangreichen Schmuckpräsentationen während der Internationalen Handwerksmesse München.

B-side DownTownArtJewellery Festival is an energetic, self-created festival for jewellery artists. The 2nd edition takes place from the 3rd until the 6th of November 2011 and brings together a series of jewellery exhibitions and performances in the city of Amsterdam. This event is initiated by min-association; Maaike Ebbinge – Iris Tsante – Noémie Doge,

who graduated from Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2007 and 2008.
B-side gives artists the opportunity to explore new ways of showing their jewellery to the world. Each artist is encouraged to take responsibility for his of her own part in a bigger chain or route.
B-side emphasises the festive side of a festival and celebrate the art of jewellery. The aim of the festival is to show different ways of presenting and thinking about art jewellery through exhibitions and performances. It allows exploration of spaces that aren’t usually used for exhibition purposes, for example parks, ateliers, bicycles, empty buildings, a living room, a café or the back of a car.
B-side happens simultaneously with other inspiring jewellery events in Amsterdam.
B-side shows designs that go very much beyond mass-produced jewellery. It shows an artistic way of presenting and dealing with jewellery. The value of this jewellery is not defined by precious metals, but by their visual force and strong concept.
There are many jewellery artists working in Amsterdam. Three of the four most renowned Dutch jewellery galleries are based here, and the jewellery department of the Rietveld Academy is well-k

nown for its active students and teachers. We are very happy to be able to celebrate Amsterdam’s special connection to jewellery with this special platform for art jewellery.
B-side, another side of jewellery.
 
B-side DownTownArtJewellery Festival is organised by: min-association.com (Maaike Ebbinge, Iris Tsante & Noémie Doge)

Where the heart is

”Strong wind in the face, the sea roaring loudly, lots of curious materials hidden in the sand, my thoughts explore the freedom of space. This is where the heart is, this is where my jewellery pieces are born.” M.E.

“I like working intensively with materials. When the materials start “speaking” and taking their own way, that is where their heart is.” I.T.

“I search for hidden stories by dismantling forgotten relics; I reinvent them picking up the pieces; I’m a treasure hunter, ferreting where their heart is. ” N.D.

EXPO itinérante ‘Oh My !’ – 24 juin 2011 à ……. – lieu … SECRET !

OH MY!
Exposition itinérante de Bijouterie Contemporaine
Notre société nous donne des définitions. Chaque objet a sa propre définition, sa fonction, alors que se passe-t-il quand on change les règles, que l’objet devient poésie ? Il nait alors une envie de comprendre cette inconnue, de la classer dans un univers connu.
Cependant  la poésie de l’objet, de ces bijoux contemporains, passe par le ressenti, la découverte. Il faut se laisser surprendre par l’envie de porter un morceau de l’univers d’un artiste. Par ce geste il est possible de lui donner une autre identité, de lui trouver sa propre définition.

Au sein de cette exposition « Oh My !»,  je présente différents artistes d’horizons très variés, qui chacun à leur façon nous content une histoire. Et cela se transmet au travers de ces bijoux contemporains qui nous surprennent, nous fascinent, nous interrogent… Il se crée un lien particulier entre le public et ces objets.

Traveling exhibition of Contemporary Jewellery

Our society keeps giving definitions. Each object has its own definition, its own function, so what happens when the rules are changed, when the object becomes poetry?
It gives birth to a desire to understantd what is unknown, to file it in a familiar universe.
Nevertheless, the poetry of the object, of these contemporay jewels, implies feelings, discovery. You surrender to the desire of wearing a piece of the universe of an artist. It is a way to give it another identity, to find its own definition.
Through this exhibition „oh My !“ I am introducing different artists from varied backgrounds, each in their own way telling us a story. And this is conveyed through these contemporary jewels which are so surprising, fascinating, and make us wonder… A special link develops between the public and these objects.

des enveloppes physiologiques, métaphysiques, artificielles, waterproof et protectrices… 
J’observe les gens qui rêvent de se confiner, allergiques à la moindre agression extérieure ou intérieure, qui se protègent autant qu’ils peuvent des dangers, réels ou imaginaires. À l’abri d’une carapace qui devient comme une seconde peau – une carapace protectrice, mais aussi une bulle de confinement.
Gorgés de solitude, tremblants de peur, ils entraînent leur carapace comme une bouée. Une carapace comme un sarcophage, dont ils ne peuvent se délivrer qu’après une lutte éreintante, au prix d’un dépouillage assumé, inaltérable, sublimé.«

EXPO ‘¡Genial! New Jewelry from Spain’ – Velvet da Vinci Gallery, USA – 15 Juin-17 Juill. 2011

La nueva joyería en España

All images from ¡Genial!  New Jewelry from Spain at Velvet da Vinci Gallery,

La galería Velvet da Vinci reúne en la exposición ¡Genial! a 18 artistas de diferentes generaciones representativos de la joyería contemporánea española en la actualidad; aunque de orígenes diversos todos ellos tienen en común su relación con Barcelona.
Repasando la geografía española observamos que se impone la tradición más conservadora y, en gran medida, prevalece la idea de que el valor de la joya recae principalmente en el valor del material con el que está hecha. Las nuevas joyas ya no son necesariamente de metales y piedras preciosas, sino que los artistas joyeros utilizan toda clase de técnicas y materiales como madera, plástico, esmaltes, porcelana, resinas, hueso, tejidos, viejos objetos, fotografías, etcétera para atraer la atención del espectador, otra característica que las distingue es el tamaño, lejos de estar sujetas a una regla, las medidas de estas joyas pueden causar sorpresa y así encontrarnos por ejemplo con enormes broches que funcionan como una escultura ya que buena parte del valor artístico de las piezas viene dado por el trabajo conceptual que encierra cada una de ellas.
Los nuevos conceptos de joyería se han ido introduciendo poco a poco en nuestro país a través de las escuelas y galerías que se encuentran principalmente en Barcelona y su área de influencia. Esta ciudad mediterránea, cruce de caminos y puerta hacia Europa, de mentalidad abierta al conocimiento de nuevas propuestas, está impregnada de dinamismo creativo y actividad comercial, por cuyo motivo muchos joyeros procedentes, sobretodo, de diferentes lugares de España y de Latinoamérica así como del resto de Europa y del mundo en general coinciden en este punto en algún momento de su trayectoria artística para participar en exposiciones, compartir experiencias, ampliar estudios o, simplemente, buscar inspiración.
La joyería entendida como objeto artístico, como una reflexión original y única, va ocupando un espacio que hasta hace poco en España estaba vacío. Nuevas galerías, ferias especializadas, workshops, exposiciones y conferencias sirven para conectar con el público y atraer a nuevos coleccionistas. A pesar de que nos queda un gran camino por recorrer, sobretodo si comparamos nuestra situación con la de los países del norte de Europa, seguimos avanzando y las nuevas herramientas de comunicación permiten que nos aproximemos cada vez más deprisa al resto del mundo.
Contar historias, reinterpretar símbolos, ensalzar la naturaleza, representar paisajes de la memoria, buscar la sorpresa, indagar en las tradiciones, motivar la reflexión y enlazar elementos geométricos son sólo algunos de los argumentos de los que se sirven estos artistas para la realización de sus joyas. Ramon Puig Cuyàs hace referencia a una arquitectura ligera a través de sus composiciones armónicas construídas con líneas y planos que se interseccionan creándose espacios que invitan a un recorrido desde diferentes puntos de vista. En las piezas de Judy McCaig aparecen elementos figurativos que se repiten y la imagen de los pájaros acaba convirtiéndose en un símbolo que evoca el movimiento y la libertad. En sus joyas Grego García Tebar transporta sentimientos engarzando sus sueños en ellas para que éstos acaben depositados en la memoria. Silvia Walz nos acerca a los tiempos escolares de cuando nos iniciábamos en el estudio de la geometría.
Desde las propuestas más conceptuales a las más formales en el conjunto de los artistas participantes, algunos de los más significados de la joyería contemporánea española, encontramos trabajos realizados con materiales muy diversos como metales, madera, porcelana, resina, esmaltes o tejidos. Teniendo siempre en cuenta el diálogo permanente entre el cuerpo humano y la joya viven sumergidos en sus procesos creativos enriqueciendo el conocimiento, experimentando con materiales y buscando nuevos recursos para, a través de sus diferentes lenguajes, elaborar pequeñas obras de arte como las reunidas en esta exposición las cuales son una clara muestra de lo que se está haciendo actualmente en nuestro país, un trabajo heterogéneo sin marcadas líneas comunes emanando libertad. (Montserrat Lacomba Barcelona, May 2011)

Contemporary Spanish Jewelry
Velvet da Vinci Gallery has curated an exhibition entitled ¡Genial! presenting 18 artists of different generations who represent contemporary Spanish jewelry. Though the artists’ backgrounds are varied, all have a common link with Barcelona.
When contemplating Spanish jewelry, it is obvious that the most conservative tradition plays a major role along with the idea that the value of a piece of jewelry is found mostly in the value of the material from which it is made. These traditions still hold true to a great extent. The new jewelry, however, isn’t necessarily made from precious metals and stones, but today’s jeweler artists use all kinds of technologies and materials like wood, plastic, enamels, porcelain, resins, bones, fabrics, found objects, photographs, etcetera to attract the attention of the spectator. Another characteristic that distinguishes them is size. Far from being subject to a rule, the sizes of these jewels can provoke surprise. For example, we can see enormous brooches as if they were sculptures since a large part of the artistic value of such pieces is thanks to the conceptual ideas that surround each of them.
Such new concepts of jewelry have been introduced to our country little by little through schools and galleries that are found mostly in Barcelona and its sphere of influence. This Mediterranean city, which is the crossroads between Spain and Europe, has an open mind to knowledge of new ideas. It is impregnated with dynamic creative and commercial activity, and it is that motive that draws many jewelers from other parts of Spain and Latin America, as well as from the rest of Europe and the world in general, to travel there at some time in their artistic trajectories to take part in exhibitions, share experiences, to study or simply to look for inspiration.
To think of jewelry as an artistic object, as an original and unique reflection, is occupying a space that in Spain had been empty even in recent times. New galleries, fairs specific to contemporary jewelry, workshops, exhibitions and conferences have been good for making a connection with the public and attracting new collectors. Even though we still have a long, hard road to follow, especially when comparing our situation to that in other Northern European countries, we forge ahead with new communication tools allowing us to quickly become closer to the rest of the world.
Telling stories, reinterpreting symbols, celebrating nature, representing memories, seeking surprise, investigating traditions, motivating the reflection and joining of geometrical elements are but a few of the arguments these artists pursue for the accomplishment of their jewels. Ramon Puig Cuyàs refers to an airy architecture through his harmonic compositions constructed with lines and planes that are intercut to create spaces that invite us to tour from different points of view. In Judy McCaig’s pieces, there appear figurative elements that repeat themselves to then become completed by the image of birds that becomes a symbol to evoke movement and freedom. In her jewels, Grego García Tebar transports feelings from her dreams by connecting them with her jewels so those feelings become deposited in our memories. Silvia Walz takes us back to our school days when we were beginning a study of geometry.
From the most conceptual to the most formal among the participating artists, all of those represented are among the most significant in Spanish jewelry. We find works realized with very diverse materials including metals, wood, porcelain, resin, enamels or fabric. Always keeping in mind the permanent dialog between the human body and the piece of jewelry, these artists live immersed in their creative processes, enriching the greater knowledge, experimenting with materials, and looking for new resources across different languages to elaborate small pieces of art such as those assembled in this exhibition. They are distinct examples of what is being done nowadays in our country — heterogeneous work without obvious lines of demarcation, based on freedom. (Montserrat Lacomba -Translation by R. Weis)

EXPO ‘True Colors’ – Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem (NL) – 20 Fevr.-29 Mai 2011

True colours. New Traditional Jewellery

All over the world, jewellery is worn to decorate the body, to indicate status and identity, or for its religious significance. The biannual international design competition New Traditional Jewellery challenges contemporary jewellers from all over the world to use these emblems of historical or ethnographic significance as a starting point for new designs. In addition to this general concept, each year concentrates on a specific theme.
This year the theme is True Colours. In the most literal sense, it is about the history, meanings, value, magic, and power of colour. For example, the inhabitants of ancient Mesopotamia believed that the colour blue would protect them from evil, while 35,000 years ago primitive man used pink fibres to decorate clothing.
True Colours can also be interpreted literally as revealing one’s colours or one’s true nature. For example, the red and black pompons on the hats worn by women from Germany’s Black Forest indicate whether or not the person wearing the hat is married, and women decorate their clothing with traditional buttons.
Both meanings of True Colours appear again in again in over three hundred submissions from thirty-four countries. The exhibition presents a selection of these submissions demonstrating the great variation of colour in contemporary jewellery.

The theme for the biennial international design contest New Traditional Jewellery is True Colours. This is the fourth edition of the contest and may said to have been very successful, with more than 300 entries of jewellery designers from 33 countries. The pieces submitted were judged by a technical jury of six persons, each with their own background – teacher, jewellery designer, academic, curator and fashion designer.
An important aspect of New Traditional Jewellery is that the participants should find their inspiration in historical and/or ethnographic jewellery. The theme selected this year has a double meaning. It is about colour, literally, but also means ‘showing your colours’ or ‘showing your true nature’. The entries were representative of this dichotomy with pieces showing an outspoken use of colour, but also with an enormous ethnic variety. It gave the jury a splendid opportunity to get an idea of what is happening at an international level in the field of contemporary jewellery design, with jewellers coming from countries like Finland, Iraq, Australia and Chile.
After some elaborate discussions the jury has selected the five winners listed below, among whom two students. While making the selection the jury aimed at diversity in order to show the various aspects within the theme of True Colours.

EXPO 'True Colors' - Museum voor Moderne Kunst Arnhem (NL) - 20 Fevr.-29 Mai 2011 dans Amanda CAINES (UK) 083caines-LRG
Amanda Caines (1961) multi-coloured Urban Tribal Necklace 

The multi-coloured Urban Tribal Necklace of Amanda Caines (1961) from Great Britain fits the theme of the contest perfectly. She has taken a good look at the necklaces of coloured beads worn by the Zulus where the necklace is a means of communication and the colours stand for a code that tells something about the age group and social status of the wearer. To make her contemporary version Caines uses rejected telephone and computer wires made of plastic in bright colours – she winds wool around them, fastens vintage fabrics to them and subsequently decorates them with beads.

 

The jury was pleasantly impressed by this year’s powerful entries of the students, with surprising and original designs. The prizes for the students were awarded to Penka Arabova (1980) from Bulgaria and Serin Oh from Korea.

Penka Arabova green brooch

Penka Arabova’s green brooch was inspired by an old Bulgarian tradition where red and white cotton threads tied together are worn as pendants, brooches or bracelets. The colour red of these so-called Martenizas is symbolic of youth and the colour white for age, and wearing them brings health and happiness. For her brooch Arabova has used different colours and materials which she associates with the old tradition in her native country and in doing so created her own modern guardian against illness and misfortune.

Serin OH – ring

At first sight Serin OH’s ring looks like a bronze nugget, coloured black, mounted on a classic ring. But upon closer inspection all kinds of jewellery and parts thereof can be distinguished, among which precious stones and a small angel, which have fused together. It is a reference to the costume jewellery that is sold in the shopping centres of Korea, mass-produced and no longer bearing any relationship to the history of Korea. Serin Oh pictures the confusion and identity crisis of modern Korea by fusing these trinkets to a whole.

Auk Russchen (1971) brooch ‘Ode’

The brooch Ode by Auk Russchen (1971) was discussed extensively by the jury and became the surprising winner. To Russchen True Colours means who you are deep inside. Showing your inside to the world. Her unusual choice of material agrees with this. Using thinly cut strips of goatskin she crochets an organic form reminiscent of intestines. The tips are of pink yarn and resemble socks. The raw, almost grubby colour of the goatskin makes the small pink details stand out. She arrived at the colour pink after reading an article about primordial man using pink coloured fibres to decorate clothing as long as 35,000 years ago. Her brooch is an ode to her and our distant ancestors. 

rygg dans Hollande (NL)
 Tove Rygg (1963) necklace Link

The necklace Link by Tove Rygg (1963) from Norway does not catch the eye because of its distinct, but rather its very subtle use of colour. During a labour-intensive process she crochets long cords of gold, silver and high-grade steel. She adds small precious stones and plaits the cords into one long chain, based on old chains of the Vikings. The various stones, haematite, smoky quartz, agate and peridote, are symbolic of the various aspects of the Norwegian landscape, such as lakes, fjords and forests. The blood agate is a personal reference to her own blood and her personal relationship with her native country Norway.
