EXPO ‘TrèsOr’ – galerie de la Perle Noire, Agde (FR) – 15 Avril-14 Oct. 2017

TrèsOr, la nouvelle exposition de la Galerie de la Perle Noire du 15 avril au 14 octobre 2017

Cette exposition, présentée par les Métiers d’Art de la Communauté d’Agglomération Hérault-Méditerranée du samedi 15 avril au samedi 14 octobre 2017, met en scène un matériau des plus nobles : l’or !

AGDE - TrèsOr, la nouvelle exposition de la Galerie de la Perle Noire du 15 avril au 14 octobre 2017

L’or : élément chimique de numéro atomique 79, de symbole Au., du mot latin aurum. Jusque là, rien de très palpitant ni de vraiment inspirant… Mais si l’on précise que le plus précieux des matériaux aux chauds éclats de « petit soleil » est une matière lumineuse, pure, dense, inaltérable, malléable à l’envi et donc facile à travailler, on comprend mieux l’attrait des créateurs pour donner vie à cette exposition « TrèsOr ». Adoré depuis la nuit des temps, l’or incarne aussi bien luxe et convoitise que pureté, conquête suprême.

Au cœur de la cité d’Agde, la Galerie de la Perle Noire réunit à cette occasion une cinquantaine de créateurs, de France, d’Espagne et d’Israël, qui auront réalisé une pièce unique intégrant l’or sous n’importe laquelle de ses formes : feuille, poudre, plaque, mixtion, fil…

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.

about the « Inyanim Group »:
« The Inyanim Group operates in the fields of jewelry-making and jewelry design. Its aim is to create a platform of creative opportunity and legitimacy for the individuals within the group and within a wider social context.
Inyanim was formed by graduates of the two leading Israeli art and designschools, Bezalel and Shenkar which, while championing different, often opposing views regarding design and art, have much in common. The Inyanim Group seeks to influence the public discourse surrounding the role of design in society through the unique and underrepresented field of jewelry design.
The eleven members of the group meet regularly for a process of thinking, listening and creating – like rehearsals before a performance. In ongoing exhibitions, the group then displays its latest “harvest” of works, thus opening a window onto their creative process. »

Die Ausstellung „Transit“ gibt einen Einblick in den aktuellen Stand des zeitgenössischen Schmucks in Israel. Nach den Stationen im Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim, im Deutschen Goldschmiedehaus Hanau und in der Stiftung Villa Bengel, Idar-Oberstein, zeigt der Bayerische Kunstgewerbe-Verein die von Jürgen Eickhoff (Galerie Spektrum, München) kuratierte Ausstellung in seiner Galerie für Angewandte Kunst.

Was unterscheidet israelische Schmuckkünstler von ihren deutschen Kollegen? Es sind die Lebensumstände, sagt Iris Fishof, jüdische Kunsthistorikerin und Autorin des Katalogs. „Die politische Situation in der Region spiegelt sich in zahlreichen Werken wider. Manche Künstler machen ein klares Statement und äußern lautstarken Protest, während andere mit leiseren Tönen an die Sache herangehen. Der brisante Fragenkomplex Kriege, Terror, Ungerechtigkeit drückt sich auf unterschiedliche Weise aus. Einige Künstler setzen sich mit dem Leid auseinander und zeigen Mitgefühl mit den Opfern. Andere offenbaren Trauma und Angst. Nicht in allen Arbeiten jedoch sind unmittelbare Spuren der politischen Situation ablesbar. Die Wahl von Medium und Verfahren steht bei einigen Arbeiten der Ausstellung im Vordergrund. Die Werkstoffe sind einfach und schlicht. Diese Anspruchslosigkeit des Materials verbindet sich oft mit einer Ästhetik, die der Tradition der Schmuckgestaltung nicht entspricht. Sie bewegt sich zwischen minimalistischer Einfachheit einerseits und Vulgärem und Trashigem am anderen Ende der Skala“.

Den wichtigsten Beweggrund der Künstler fasst Kurator Jürgen Eickhoff zusammen: „Der politische Einfluss in der Aussage des Schmucks ist bedeutend höher als bei uns. Hier sind vor allem zwei Dingen auffällig: Zum einen ist die politische Situation ein deutliches und direktes Thema für viele Künstler, auch im
Schmuckbereich. Diese „Politisierung“ der Thematik im Schmuck ist in Israel deutlich stärker ausgeprägt als hierzulande. Das zweite ist das Phänomen, dass es eine kontinuierliche Entwicklung gibt, die von vielen getragen wird, die oft nur über wenige Jahre beim Schmuck bleiben und dann zum Design oder zur freien Kunst wechseln. Also eine Beständigkeit der Entwicklung, die nicht unbedingt an immer dieselben Künstler gekoppelt ist.“

Welche Sprache spricht zeitgenössischer Schmuck aus Israel?
„Die Werkstoffe, die die Schmuckmacher verwenden, sind verhältnismäßig schlicht“, resümiert Iris Fishof. „Sie reichen von Silber über recyceltes Papier zu Holz. Gold findet sich kaum. Steine sind rar. Außer Silber kommen ein paar Metalle zur Verwendung, desgleichen Glasperlen, textile und synthetische Materialien und Fundstücke. Diese Schlichtheit der Werkstoffe ist in der israelischen Kunst anerkannt und bekannt als „Want of Matter“.
In vielen Stücken der Ausstellung spürt man die Freude am Experimentieren mit neuen Techniken.
Deutlich zu beobachten ist eine Rückkehr zum Handwerklichen. Sogar industrielle Materialien wie Aluminiumnetz werden mit handwerklichen Verfahren fachgerecht verarbeitet. Die Farbgebung ist im Großen und Ganzen eher gedämpft. Einfarbigkeit, vor allem Grau und ein paar Brauntöne, herrschen vor. Die Farben sind möglicherweise eine Antwort auf die Landschaft
Israels, die zeitweise trocken und karg ist. Leuchtende Farben finden sich, wenn überhaupt, vor allem in Arbeiten mit Email, Epoxitharz und Fundstücken. Die Rückkehr zum Ornamentalen, ein globaler Trend, ist auch im zeitgenössischen Schmuck aus Israel zu beobachten. Blumen und Unkräuter, eine Arabeske, Tiere und sogar ein als politisches Abzeichen getragener Panzer – das sind alles Ornamente. Die Schmuckstücke vermitteln eine neue Ästhetik. Sie haben keinen Glamour und sind nicht verführerisch im herkömmlichen Sinne.
Aber einige strahlen eine poetische Schönheit oder Aura aus, während der Reiz von anderen in ihrem rohen und scheinbar unfertigen Aussehen liegt.“

EXPO ‘Foreign body’ – Allenby 94, Tel-Aviv (IL) – 16-31 Aout 2012

« Foreign Body: Giving Jewelry a Second Look »

Foreign Body: Giving Jewelry a Second Look features the work of 15 Israeli jewelers who demonstrate an unfaltering commitment to individual expression through highly-developed techniques in jewelry-making. The works in the exhibition challenge traditional, mainstream attitudes toward this ancient practice with surprising investigations on scale, wearability, materials, and narrative or critical content, positioning the body as a locus for unfamiliar encounters between jewelry object and wearer

EXPO ‘I am an Other’ – Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv (IL) – 10 Juin-20 Nov. 2012

« I am an Other »

The sixth exhibit of Israeli jewelry deals with the perception of « the other self, » or the alter ego. Fifty-three artists participating in the exhibit set out on an inner journey, the process resulting in diverse expressions: virtuosic jewelry-makers who are usually meticulous in their work chose to free themselves of the constraints and make room for expression ; some used organic materials; some turned to figurative creation, thus giving the human form an expression of « the other self, » while other artists chose the abstract to convey biographical moments. Some preferred the multitude so as not to focus the idea of « the other self » on a single item, while others preferred simplification and catharsis. It appears that the majority of Israeli jewelry-makers do not wear the jewelry they create, and some wear no jewelry at all. For this exhibit they created jewelry for themselves.

Israeli Jewelry - Shenkar

« The selection of an abstract concept for this exhibition – Alter Ego (the Self as Other) — generated an extensive and riveting dialogue with participating artists. The process that resulted engendered layered and varied works that reflect the multi-faceted nature of this concept.  The underlying premise the artists were invited to consider was the notion that the ornamental artifact — an intimate object placed directly on the body — can represent parts of the Self, including its inverse or hidden elements.  The ornament also draws the gaze of others; the visual cues it offers subtly influence other forms of communication.
The roots of the term alter ego come from ancient Greek philosophy.  When Zeno of Cittium, founder of the Stoic school of Greek Philosophy, was asked, “what is a friend?” he responded: “allos ego,” that is, alter ego.  In a similar vein, Aristotle suggested that a friend should be treated like a second self.  Over time, the word ego came to mean “I” in Latin.  In the modern era, Sigmund Freud extended the word’s meaning when he defined it as a central element of the psyche.  The alter ego has been seen by psychology mainly as the inversion of the way the Self normally presents itself publicly.  But the notion remains vague and elusive.
The alter ego has many cultural expressions: in pop and rock music, where artists embody fictional figures through which they can present new and experimental musical content; in the world of Comics, where an everyday person turns into a superhero; in literature that deals with two sets of personalities within a single person, and more.  Philosophers discussed the alter ego in the context of reciprocal relations, and as part of the effort to understand the Self.  As it turns out, scientists have found that a “mirror neuron network” in the brain allows us to experience the Other’s gestures as though they were our own, so that observing others is an inseparable element of self-understanding.
After they were introduced to the varied cultural manifestations of the alter ego, the jewelry makers were invited to design a jewel that would reflect their own alter ego.  Some artists chose to shed the rigid discipline that characterizes their virtuoso work, and allowed chance to influence the artifact, suggesting an alter ego that is out of control; others chose a figurative image of a face or person meant to convey a miniaturized Self, or created prostheses and additions to the face, embodying aspects of the self that go unexpressed in daily life; several chose animals to convey the complex relation with the Other – an ally or a distant and threatening figure.  Others chose images suggesting motion, such as boats representing sailing from the exterior inwardly and vice versa.  Some artists worked with abstract forms generated from a clear, personal context, forms that permitted a different self to momentarily show through; others worked with round shapes that express the Yin Yang principle and with it the notion that we must harmonize the contradictory elements of the self.  Finally, several artists related to the written word or a writing implement as a way to represent either the Self or the alter ego.
It seems that the exhibition highlights the fact that jewel-craft – a realm of intricate detail – spans a great deal of conceptual space.  Jewelers contract entire worlds into physical artifacts measured in centimeters, but the variety of responses engendered in the vast arena surrounding a single idea is near infinite. » Nirith Nelson,  Curator
