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

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.

Dania Chelminsky, une perle on vous dit !

Dania Chelminsky

« I combine contrasting materials in my work; organic with synthetic, hard and soft, crafted and found, creating a possible connotation and meaning.
I am intrigued by their touching points, using traditional metalsmithing techniques to emphasize moments of tension, telling a story.
I wonder about the meaning of recycling.
Pieces and bits, disposable, unnecessary transform to precious fractures of garbage.
I combine these materials as a statement, as a moment of thought about the way we refer to our surrounding world. »

« I cut branches into pieces no bigger than a finger. Each cut stump inspires me to begin a process of mending.
Working directly with the material, without preliminary sketches, creates a pattern in which every piece is different .The individual fingerprints and small defects that   characterize handcrafted jewelry create a sense of personification and connection to the body. The pieces are not merely ‘accessories of adornment’ but have a story to tell.
The role of the hand is something very visible .The hand is at the same time the one who wears the pieces and the one who creates them. All the branches are cut off and pierced, transforming them into stumps, small statues, preliminary sketches that can be made into something bigger, but they are also perforated, like potential rings, something that is both in the image of a finger and suitable to be worn on a finger.
The placement of the pieces on the table creates a sort of ‘group picture’ but also reveals a disturbing aspect of the gathering. A gathering of fragments that have been torn out, burnt or that were made defective. »

‘Mended 240‘ 

Dania Chelminsky : « I have been working for my first solo exhibition for the last 8 months, opening soon May 17 – Periscop gallery until 16.6″

« Mended
 I tear off roots from their place, almost in a violent act, some are torn and wounded.
I dry these roots, stop their growth. I intensify a moment of disruption.
Like in a therapeutic act, I mend and fix every wound.
I dress the roots metal jewelry or is it metal splints? »

EXPO ‘Mediterraneo’ – Museo di Storia Naturale del Mediterraneo, Livorno (IT) – 12-19 Avril 2011

 MEDITERRANEO

INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION OF CONTEMPORARY JEWELRY

la Provincia di Livorno con il Museo di Storia Naturale in collaborazione con il Gruppo Toscano dell’AGC (Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo) e il Garden Club sezione Livorno, hanno organizzato un nuovo capito legato ai gioielli contemporanei sul tema del Mediterraneo.

EXPO 'Mediterraneo' - Museo di Storia Naturale del Mediterraneo, Livorno (IT) - 12-19 Avril 2011   dans AGC Italia copertina1_2_2

Per questa occasione sessanta artisti (designer del gioiello contemporaneo) di tredici paesi differenti, dall’ Italia a Singapore, dalla Russia a Gerusalemme si confrontano con il Mediterraneo, il “Mare Nostrum” da sempre punto ideale di incontro, contaminazione di idee, culture, linguaggi e tradizione, un luogo dove le differenze hanno sempre rappresentato la sua ricchezza e l’ essenza stessa della sua civiltà. Cultura ed arte affinchè il “Mediterraneo” continui a rappresentare attraverso un autentico dialogo ed una convinta accettazione della convivenza, tra la compresenza e interazione degli opposti, un bacino di crescita per la società contemporanea. Gli artisti, partecipando a questa manifestazione, arrivano alle sponde del “ pensiero mediterraneo” e attraverso le loro identità, con la luce,i colori, i miti, i segni della storia e delle tradizioni, elaborano un linguaggio condiviso ed aperto alle diversità accrescendo, così, la consapevolezza della necessità di una coerenza propositiva nell’ambito della cultura del gioiello contemporaneo che ne garantisca una propria funzionalità storica.

E’ previsto un premio di 1000 euro rivolto agli artisti fino ai 35 anni di età che sarà aggiudicato dall’ opera più rappresentativa della tematica legata al Mediterraneo.
