Classé dans : Carrie Mae ROSE (US),COUP DE COEUR,recup' / recycled,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:04

avec ce nom si doux de ROSE, des bijoux si ….. coupants, cinglants, menaçants ! « razor collars« , « confiscated weapons » …. lorsqu’on voit « elemental angels » on se dit ouf « sauvé » …. eh bien non ! des ailes d’anges….. faites de ciseaux ! de quoi …. fendre l’air, assurément ! :-)


« My wearable weapons, archetypal armor and interactive costumes awaken the power of vulnerability.
Devastating beauty that could kill. These items push the boundary of fashion to the absolute limit.

The tension between the depth of total annihilation and the heights of revelation sky. I make work with electricity, plasma, open source software, confiscated weapons, and razor blades. Integrating sacred geometry, alchemy, symmetry, ritual play and tribal mysticism.
My mission is to challenge people to feel ecstatic freedom when they embrace and surrender into the beauty of their fragility. My art explores meditation, death and beauty. »


« Mixing beauty and danger, the works of Carrie Mae Rose are a convergence of fine art, fashion, technology and performance. Rose is a sculptor and interactive installation artist. She builds sculptures and wearable objects out of scissors confiscated from airport security, recycled razorblades, plastic zip ties and cement. These re-purposed objects are striking transformations of the personal belongings of others.
Carrie Mae Rose’s varied artistic background includes Butoh, interactive technologies, stilt walking, jewelry making and costume design. She received her B.A. in Sculpture & Textiles from Prescott College in Arizona, where she exhibited extensively before coming east.

EXPO ‘Piece of Mind’ – Elga Wimmer PCC, New-York (USA) – 5-28 Mai 2011

Classé dans : Carrie Mae ROSE (US),Exposition/Exhibition,USA — bijoucontemporain @ 19:59

The urge to preserve and collect is instinctual. Unique to the individual and manifest in different ways, collections can be material or cerebral, conscious or unconscious, mundane or monumental. In Piece of Mind, ten contemporary artists explore how various types of accumulations — actual objects or amassed memories, deliberately accumulated or inevitably accrued as time passed — can be presented and interpreted.

Piece of Mind was organized by candidates for the Master of Arts degree in Art Market: Principles and Practices at FIT. In their second year, students take a two-semester course in which they curate, execute, and promote a group exhibition. They graduate from the program with the knowledge, skills, and experience needed for professional careers in the art market. The 2011 curators are Anna Casillas, Jacob Coley, Sara Goldfarb, Anya Komar, Debra Kowalski, Briana McKinnell, Allison Mital, Lucas Natali, Susie Parker, Andrea Renaud, Osman Can Yerebakan, and Pilar Zevallos

FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), a leader in career-oriented education, is a college of art and design, business and technology of the State University of New York (SUNY), with 46 majors leading to the AAS, BFA, BS, MA, MFA, and MPS degrees. The college serves more than 10,000 students and offers courses in a wide range of fields.
