EXPO ‘Pieces of Fate’ – Pieces of Eight Gallery, Melbourne (AU) – 24 Mai-2 Juill. 2011

 Have you ever come across a piece of jewellery, and thought to yourself, this must have been made for me… And there it was, just sitting there, quite simply, waiting to be found.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-NIDw_k2UMII/TdS4LkRXYkI/AAAAAAAAASg/G7PasBaIWLo/s1600/pieces%2Bof%2Bfate%2Binvitation%2B2011.tiff

 

Pieces of Eight Gallery presents Pieces of Fate, a group exhibition of exquisite handcrafted pendants. Drawing inspiration from Professor Robert Baines, who coined the term, the exhibition includes works from 37 of the gallery’s represented artists who broadly explore the idea of an objects fate. Within the pendants various manifestations lay inherent intentions, purposes and appeal; an unquestionable right to exist. What then becomes its destiny?
Historically, pendants have provided all kinds of meaning and perceived powers for the wearer. Pieces of Fate explores how the modern day pendant can tell a story, possess magical powers or provide particular protection to an individual. It playfully engages with conversations about how materials, symbols and personal concepts give power or inscribe meaning to a piece of jewellery, and consequently how this may cause it to potentially determine its wearer.
With the making of each pendant, the artist was asked to record who or what the pendant may be for. This confidential text travels with the piece as a secret exchange between the creator and wearer of the pendant. As Kevin Murray states in his essay about the exhibition, « These incantations represent an important step forward in the restoration of jewellery power. They’re more than reflections on the personal inspiration of the jeweller. They also anticipate how the pendants will be experienced by the wearer. »

EXPO ‘‘Winter’ Neckpieces’ – studio2017, Waterloo, Sydey (AU) – 3 Mai–4 Juin 2011

‘Winter’ Neckpieces
For the 4th year running we will be hosting our successful annual ‘Winter’ group exhibition exploring the breadth, depth, and width of a particular area of jewellery or the body. Our previous winter exhibitions have showcased contemporary brooches. This year the focus will be the neck.

This year we invite a selected number of Australian and International artists to make contemporary versions of this ancient form of self expression. Expect to see works ranging from eye catching, oversized statement pieces, through to delicate pared back jewels. The only limitation will be that the finished work can be worn around the neck.

faire feu de tout BOIS – WOOD jewelry

Le bois « à l’état brut », enfin d’aspect, parce que le travail, la découpe, la ligne, la technique moderne sont bien présents !

Visiblement, un goût, un état d’esprit qui nous viennent du nord !? :-)

Ce goût du bois « brut », ce retour à la nature : dûs à nos récentes préoccupations pour la nature, ou fait culturel pour ces « nordiques » qui se sont toujours sentis plus proches de la nature que nous, méditerranéens ? en tout cas, de la TRES belle ouvrage !
