Ela Bauer, jewellery

Bauer has designed groups of jewellery based on her exploration of the significance of ‘worn colour’ and ‘worn forms’. Her computer designed, 3D printed Polyamide rings, brooches and necklaces are both highly minimalist and uncompromising as well as tactile and sensory and give the effect of being a symbol on the body. The Polyurethane pendants and necklaces are large, monumental, colourful and expressive. The aprons are more physical, sometimes with a dash of surrealism, domesticity or cruelty due to their association with professional clothing.

RA gallery - Ela Bauer

« Colour is the starting point for my latest works. What does worn “colour” do? Does it have a meaning? I think that colour is the first given you perceive and interpret; through experiencing colour you have an immediate, important notion of a thing. This first notion subsequently deepens and goes into nuance the longer you observe an object, but colour has the power to create moods/ atmospheres on the unconscious level. Initially I wanted to have as less as possible influence on the forms, I sort of let them happen. I have poured the colour in bigger and smaller puddles, and joined them to a necklace. It became quite a large object that covered a big portion of the torso; actually a kind of apron. The given of a jewellery piece that flows out of it’s “normal” proportions in terms of size, and becomes an armour, a frontal protection, interested me. Wearing a piece of jewellery (that in itself is a complex communication means), goes then in the direction of “work” en “protection”. And so I returned actually to an old love of mine, the apron. “Apron” implicates homeliness, everyday life, but also cruel deeds, and also protection. One commits kind and cruel deeds, the apron stands between you and your deeds. Your deeds don’t leave traces or stains on you, the apron carries them. At the same time of course, the question arises whether that’s true; What belongs to ones own person, and what one considers as the outside world; where lay the boundaries of the “inner” and the “outside”; where does one end and begins the other… Parallel to that working- process I do an inquest into basic, evocative forms. Those simple, geometric forms function as an emblem when worn. Maximal focus is set on those basic forms due to the fact that they are printed 3- dimensionally, in one single material and monochrome. My research into the basic and evocative forms extended gradually also to my aprons and polyurethane jewellery, and influences their character significantly. » Ela Bauer May 2012 Ela Bauer - neck object  –  Amsterdam, galerie RA.Ela Bauer – neck object

EXPO ‘Naturel/Artificiel’ – Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h, Montreal (CA) – 25 Mai-8 Juill. 2012

NATUREL/ARTIFICIEL
COMMISSAIRE/CURATOR LUZIA VOGT

VOUS ÊTES CORDIALEMENT INVITÉ AU VERNISSAGE DE L’EXPOSITION vendredi 25 Mai de 17H À 20H.
OPENING OF THE EXHIBITION FRIDAY, MAY 25 FROM 5 TO 8PM.

 EXPO Naturel-Artificiel

Présentant des artistes établis et de la relève des États-Unis, des Pays-Bas, du Luxembourg, de Suède, d’Allemagne, de Grande-Bretagne, d’Estonie, du Japon et d’Israël, cette exposition, organisée par Luzia Vogt, propose le regard de ces artistes sur l’environnement aujourd’hui, interrogeant la place de la Nature , immaculée et pure, dans notre monde
industriel et contrôlé contemporain. Façonnées avec des matériaux naturels et synthétiques ainsi que traditionnels explorés de manière inattendue, ces oeuvres révèlent tout en poésie et défis des interprétations extraordinaires de ces artistes.
Introducing established and emerging artists from the U.S., The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Great Britain, Estonia, Japan and Israel, this exhibition, curated by Luzia Vogt, proposes these artists’ visions of the environment today, questioning the place of Nature, immaculate and pure, in our controlled, contemporary industrial world. Fashioned with natural and synthetic as well as traditional materials explored in unexpected ways, these works reveal with poetry and defiance these artists’ extraordinary interpretations.

L’EXPOSITION SE POURSUIT JUSQU’AU 8 JUILLET 2012 //THE EXHIBITION CONTINUES UNTIL JULY 8, 2012.

« La vie est comme un échange entre donner et prendre, entre le développement et le changement. L’objet trouvé est un déchet du monde de consommation qui traîne un peu partout en attendant sa destruction, son renouvellement ou sa métamorphose. L’objet trouvé est le souvenir d’une personne absente, un témoin du temps passé.
Les objets trouvés dérangent ma routine quotidienne. Ils attirent mon attention, ils stimulent ma curiosité et nourrissent mon imagination.
Souvent ces objets trouvés et cette routine quotidienne sont des points de départ pour mes travaux. Le processus alternant expérience et réflexion me mène jusqu’au travail final.
Je réponds intuitivement aux objets quotidiens usés et à leurs fragments. Je les laisse perturber ma routine journalière, les habitudes et rituels de ma vie.
Des points de vue et des valeurs communs sont remis en question.
Je crée des bijoux et des récipients innovateurs et délicats. Mes objets évoquent des souvenirs et jouent avec l’imagination.
Le sujet de naturel-artificiel persiste dans mes différents projets.
En général, je suis fascinée par la thématique du naturel et de l’artificiel. Où sont leurs limites de nos jours ? Est-ce qu’il y en a ? Le but de cette exposition est de mettre en relation des travaux qui traitent le sujet du naturel et de l’artificiel en rapport avec nos corps naturels ou plus si naturels. »   Luzia Vogt, 2012

EXPO ‘FORMA vs MATERIA’ – Galleria CRISTIANI, Torino (Italy) – 7-31 Dec. 2011

FORMA vs MATERIA vol.3

Un’incursione per scoprire il gioiello contemporaneo a Torino

Inaugura mercoledì 7 dicembre 2011 alle ore 19,00 presso la Galleria Cristiani, Via Porta Palatina 13 – Torino, la mostra Forma vs Materia – Volume 3, l’annuale esposizione che, dal 2009, porta un’incursione nel gioiello contemporaneo attraverso un’innovativa selezione di designer europei.

http://www.comeunagazzaladra.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Forma_vs_materia_2011.jpg

Forte del successo di pubblico ottenuto negli anni scorsi, la mostra Forma vs Materia, presenta anche questo anno al pubblico torinese un percorso che, tra innovazione e curiosità, contiene le nuove tendenze dell’arte orafa italiana ed europea.

L’esposizione, curata da Mariola Demeglio, propone anche questo anno un viaggio dove la forma dei gioielli va alla ricerca di nuove espressioni attraverso anche un connubio con materie spesso inusuali nel gioiello: dall’argento al carbonio, all’oro fino ai materiali ritenuti più poveri.

Per questo terzo anno dell’evento-appuntamento saranno esposti e messi in vendita pezzi unici da indossare e portare tutti i giorni con la consapevolezza di mostrare e stupire per Forma e Materia: una selezione di gioielli nati dalla creatività e dall’arte di giovani designer affermati in tutta Europa.

EXPO ‘The Plastic Show’, Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Francisco (US) – 1er-31 Oct. 2010

 ‘The Plastic Show’, Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Francisco

The Plastic Show  (click to see more about this show)
(Rebecca Hannon earrings- ‘Modular Multi-Color’ – Formica, sterling silver)

 

 ‘The Plastic Show’, an exhibition featuring work from the recently published Lark Jewelry Book 500 Plastic Jewelry Designs. The Plastic Show features 250 pieces by 75 artists employing a variety of plastic materials such as resin, latex, rubber, epoxy, and thermoplastics, many of which are reused or recycled. Having been embraced by artists and designers, these materials are now firmly woven into the language of contemporary jewelry making. Used alone or in combination with traditional elements, these substances can, with certainty, be classified as precious. Thanks to the use of plastics, conventional components like silver, gold, platinum, and gemstones are now only part of the jewelry-making equation. The jewelry in this collection represents the best work being produced today by artists who use plastics as a foundational element in their pieces.

En bonne « fille des années 60-70″ je voue un amour inconsidéré au plastique ! Il faut dire aussi qu’un événemant particulier de ma vie a grandement joué en ce sens : petite, vivant à Thessalonique (nord de la Grèce), on y subissait de nombreux tremblements de terre. L’un d’eux a déclenché un gigantesque incendie où ma famille a TOUT perdu. Mon ère a pleuré son Toulouse-Lautrec, moi mon nounours, et ma mère son argenterie qui a entièrement fondu …. MAIS …. les pompiers nous ont remis ce qui a vait été sauvé : la VAISSELLE en PLASTIQUE, rangée dans le placard au-dessus de l’évier, près du réservoir d’eau ……… c’était le premier signe ! ensuite, remeublement oblige, mes parents se sont entièrement remeublés en « design tout plastique » : sièges en ABS de Guy Paulin, tables plastique de Vico Magistretti chez Artemide, et toute « l’invasion » de plastique orange des années 68 (vous visualisez ? la balance terraillon en plastique orange ? le tourne-disque Phillips mallette-portable-ouvrable ? les miroirs à bords arrondis de chez Artemide ?  les tables de nuit de chez Kartell ??? ) ………et voilà ! j’AIME le plastique !! :-) ses infinies possibilités de formes, ses couleurs « décapantes », son humeur joyeuse  ……….. bon, d’accord, il n’est pas écologique DU TOUT et, parait-il, rend stérile ….. mais … ça me réjouit et me met en joie ! :-)

EXPO ‘I Care A Lot – Opening’ – Gallery Platina, Stockholm (Sweden) – 2 Sept.-2 Oct. 2010

A Portable Discussion about current issues in the Middle East.
42 juried jewellery artists from 22 countries showing work on the conflict

 Why jewelry?
« Jewelry is an intimate art medium within the private and the public space which offers a personal relationship and an encounter between the wearer ,the viewer audience and the actual jewelry. It is an invitation to start a conversation and it can make a meeting possible. The body is a portable show case and the wearer chooses what and how to exhibit on him/her. Jewelry express the wearer character and sense of humor, it acts as an extension to the wearer personality, indicating his/her group of belonging, it is asking questions or claiming its opinion about the reality in which we live in, about our society, our surrounding and ourselves« 

The project aim is to raise discussion about current issues in the Middle East through an international art exhibition in which jewellery is the chosen media.
42 pieces of artists from 22 countries were selected independently by five international jury members – experts in their fields of studies and practice: Dr. Otto von Busch (Sweden) – Fashion Activist, Love Jonsson (Sweden) – Craft Critic, Prof’ Vered Kaminski (Israel) – Jewellery Artist, Shari Pierce (USA, Germany) – Jewellery Artist, Dr. Nada Shabout (USA,Qatar) – Art Historian

Cause We Care.
The region’s history and present are seeded with continuous violent national, ethnic and other conflicts. In many aspects the Middle East is considered to be one of the most sensitive and unstable regions in the world; strategically, economically, politically, culturally and religiously. It is located in the center of the international politics agenda. Its historical role, its huge reserves of crud oil and its significance for the three largest monotheist religions are usually taken as reasons for the world’s ardent interest in the region. But the attitude towards the Middle East has pasted the point of a keen interest in world affairs. By now it seems clear that the Middle East is perceived, especially by consumers of Western media, as the place where world dramas converge, or – more accurately – collide. It is almost the opposite of the Bermuda Triangle: everything that happens there pops up on our radars.
What is the Middle East? What is the source of our attraction to it? Is it just that it happens to be the most eventful place on earth? What is the nature of our commitment to effecting the future of the region? Do we really care about what goes on there? Do we really care about what goes on anywhere that is elsewhere? Do we care about the Middle East in a way similar to the way we care about how people look at us? Do we care about it the way we care about what people see in us?

Claire Baloge (FR) -  Camel dung, gold leaf, silk (collier en crottes de chameau … j’adore !!)

« I have chosen to use camel dung, because  it’s shape and color. Although the use of camel dung in jewelry may provoke it also links: in those (not so) far-away countries, many people are still using these animals, and their excrement, in daily life, while some others, a few miles away , are smoking the cigars of the oil business. I have chosen to use gold because gold is the referential measurement on which the whole world economy is founded. It remains a major symbol for jewelry, almost everywhere around the world. While camels are traditionally emblems of the noble class, in the nomad society, a clear mark of wealth and importance. It seems to be two different temporalities, which are still sharing the same space, coexisting in the same territories. »

ATOUT COEUR

Ce n’est pas le « simple » coeur qui est donné à voir -à porter- ici, le « classique », à la Peynet, celui des « amoureux », non, c’est le coeur organe anatomique, masse musculaire, limite sanguinolant, et du fait de ce sang il évoque physique, mal, souffrance, et rejoint la représentation « chrétienne » du coeur christique, le « sanctus ignis sanctus viscus » ….. On part de la viscère pour arriver au coeur sacré de Jésus …… les voies du seigneur sont impénétrables…………………

This is a huge heart which actually is a huge knot. That is the key feeling in this work; a huge,  screaming (maybe bleeding..), knot- heart. The knot is such a paradoxical form; it consists of “one”, but through an action (of knotting) it becomes “two”, with a heart between them. At the same time it is the ground of endless processes which in themselves are not complex, but all together they create an unsolvable, knotted reality. An un-followable mass of actions and reactions. There is no wrong or right, just a complex, painful situation.” (Ela Bauer)

Lin Stanionis (US) – ‘Seed of Temptation’ Brooch in urethane resin (Facere Gallery)

« More recently, I have begun to explore the heart and the many implicit meanings it has … Removed from the body, the heart is at the same time both container and content. It extends beyond the symbolic as it becomes both metaphor and metonym. In using the heart in my work as a vessel form, my intent is to continue the close association between body and object functions, thus developing a syntax that signifies interchange, transformation and desire. A recent piece « Mystic Interchange » addresses these concerns. These notions of union through interchange, transformation and desire are brought forward in the work through the tension found in the visual imagery, which is intended to suggest the oscillation between physical and spiritual planes. Not unlike the Eastern concept of bindu, an extensionless point from which there is an endless rhythmic expansion and contraction of the energy vibrations that form the cosmos, I also sought to express that moment of in-between, that moment where one is straddling the plane of transformation, where one is acutely aware of both sides and where at this point one is simultaneously both and neither. »(Lin Stanionis)

Katja Prins (NL)-’Bound by Blood’ Necklace – 2007 – wooden beads, cotton

 » This necklace brings together and mixes various prayer-necklaces, which only differ in detail. Prayerbeads are being used in several religions and they all have their own systematical design. The beads stands for the different prayers and by following the beads you can’t loose track and count while you are praying. The Roman-Catholic church has the ‘rosary”, the Islam has the “tespi”,  Buddhism (Nichiren) has the “juzu”and Tibetan Buddhism has the “mala”. Nowadays we are living in a time of globalization. Worldwide people are connecting more and more, not only economically, but also politically and culturally. Borders are fading and people travel and migrate more than ever. Out of that comes integration of different cultures and religions. Partly because of the not always so very successful integration-policy of many countries, extremism in certain religions also flourishes, conflicts arise. With this/my interpretation of the prayer-necklace I want to bring together all  prayer-necklace and make 1 out of it all.  A contemporary blood red prayer necklace. In my opinion the religions don’t differ so much from one another, they differ mostly in details. That’s what I want to show with this necklace. By bringing together all the prayerbeads, symbolically I want to bring together the different religions and with that the people. The title “Bound by Blood” stands for the idea that on the inside we are all the same. It also refers to the many wars (and with that the shedding of a lot of blood) that have been fought in the name of religion » (Katja Prins (NL))

Burcu Buyukunal (TR) -’Terrifying Beauty’ head piece – brass, cubic zirconia – Turkey, 2009

« My work is driven by conventions and societal norms relating to the body prevalent in history both past and present. Plastic surgery, alternative medicine, and ways of predicting the future are belief  systems whose underpinnings I am uncertain of. I use my work to illustrate my inability to reconcile the purposes, needs, and motives of these systems and the people who subscribe to them. As a fairly recent development in mass culture, plastic surgery is a system that suggests attaining beauty popularized by the media. ‘Terrifying Beauty’ focuses on the trends of cosmetic surgery, which  oftentimes impose the conception of Western Beauty, to question conventions of beauty and  challenge the function of jewelry as adornment. I created four pieces distorting the face in an unlikely way, contrasting and contradicting the purpose of traditional jewelry. I want my work to surprise and challenge people to inspire questioning. Suggesting something extreme, unusual, and irrational is one strategy to achieve this. I hope the viewer will immediately ask if they would or would not wear such pieces. I wanted to use gold first but it was expensive for me. So, I used brass that looks like gold in the photos. Then I noticed that material hierarchy was another convention. Thus, using brass supported my idea. My forms simply followed the function of each piece.« (Burcu Buyukunal)

Sally Von Bargen (USA) – ‘Elegy’ Necklace – Brass, paper, digital photos

« ‘Elegy’ honors the individual men and women who left homes … travelled to Iraq for war and died there. It is about the pain of loss and lies, etched with the words, « lies brought this lament – this elegy of truth – these lost treasures.
Elegy is a monumental neck-piece consisting of over 4200 digital portraits. Each portrait shows one American man or woman who lost life in Iraq during the Bush presidency. Using public  records for the names and photos of the fallen, if no portrait was available a silhouette was used to represent the lost life. Each Elegy portrait is printed on acid-free paper, which was chosen for its workability. The prints were mounted on an intermediate paper layer and sandwiched back-to-back to form a simple 1.5cm x 3cm link.  The links were connected by brass rings and formed into 70 strands which terminate at brass disk. The disc is etched with the words, “lies brought this lament – this elegy of truth -these lost treasures. » (Sally Von Bargen)
