EXPO ‘New Masters’ – South Karelia Art Museum, Lappeenranta (Finland) – 26 Oct.-9 Dec. 2012

New Masters

Saimaa University of Applied Sciences presents nine new Masters of Culture and Art from fine art studies in the South Carelian Art Museum in Lappeenranta, Finland. The viewers of this MA-degree exhibition will experience new images, questions and encounters. What happens if jewellery is the human body? How are the chaos theory and order linked in shape of a stone chain? What are those old men doing in the art work of a young artist?
In the exhibition the discount percentages of shops are visible in the faceted stones and super shiny surfaces. Personal memories are shown as rough stone pendants. The starting point for an art work can begin from a tradition of herbarium or the identity of the artist in between two countries and cultures. Beside materialistic approaches, the exhibition shows contemporary jewellery with a twist of moving images and also a collection of hundred fairies with butterfly wings.
NEW MASTERS exhibition shows proposals and views to the nowadays fine art. The nine artists of this exhibition have in common not only the new degree, but they have been working as international artists and have previous education in fine art and design.

EXPO 'Ashes and Diamonds' - Galleria Pihatto, Lappeenranta (Finland) - 31 Oct.-25 Nov. 2012 dans Anna RIKKINEN (FI) Ashes_Diamonds

Ashes and Diamonds is a curated contemporary jewellery exhibition, that’s part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012- program. Contemporary jewellery, which is rarely showcased in Finland, is a marginal and groundbreaking form of art. 18 artists and 36 works in total were chosen for the exhibition, which is curated by Päivi Ruutiainen (who’s currently preparing her doctorate on contemporary jewellery)  in cooperation with HUMAK and The Jewellery Art Association in Finland.
The mission of the exhibition is to break both the preconceptions about jewellery as an art form as well as the limits of the art world. The project will also give an opportunity for finnish jewellery artists to showcase their art and increase public knowledge of contemporary jewellery.

After Platina, the exhibition can be seen at :
Lahti, Finland: Muotohuoltamo, 3.10.2012 – 24.10.2012
Lappeenranta, Finland: Pappilan Pihatto, 31.10.2012 – 25.11.2012

Ashes and Diamonds is an exhibition that displays the works of 18 Finnish artists representing different areas of contemporary jewellery art and design.

The exhibition gives a comprehensive overview of the different techniques and materials used in contemporary jewellery design today, as well as offering insight into the meanings a piece of jewellery can carry. Besides the traditional materials of precious stones and metals, modern jewellery design also makes use of gypsum, coal, organic raw materials, recycled materials, and other materials traditionally considered to be plain.

The Ashes and Diamonds exhibition will be accompanied by workshops, pop-up shops and HomeShopping events, where invited guests get to hear the artists themselves talk about their works.

Ashes and Diamonds will run until 16 June at the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 Studio gallery.

EXPO ‘UltraMarine’ – Tallinn, Estonia – 7 Oct.-6 Nov. 2011

UltraMarine as a word derivates from Latin ultra + marinus and means ’over the sea’ or ’beyond the sea’.
Ultramarine is a fiery blue pigment extracted from lapis lazuli, one of the oldest precious stones used in jewellery for thousands of years. Lapis lazuli or lazurite was imported to Europe from Middle Asia by sea via Venice, hence the name ’beyond the sea’.
Ultramarine was a rare and valuable colorant, as expensive as gold leaf because of its remote origin and complex production process. Medieval masters often used that exotic pigment for the uppermost colour layer only. Sometimes just the robes of Virgin Mary and li’l Jesus were painted using the priceless blue.
UltraMarine is a solo sailor’s route across the sea, an artist’s dialogue with a material that takes place while she works at her desk. One can spy a knowing smile on the countenance of she who has arrived at her destination – for the joy of surpassing oneself is the greatest pleasure of all. A co-conspirator knows the feeling well. The sea unites; the land divides. UltraMarine is bluer than the sea.

(Sara Borgegård – necklace: ULTRAMARINE 2011 – Iron, embroidery thread, lapis lazuli, spraypaint)

 

There are works of 51 artists from Estonia, Europe, US, Australia and Asia, which will be seen in an exhibition space specially set up for the occasion in the Noblessner district. UltraMarine exhibition will be accompanied by an 80-page catalogue which will be published for the opening of the exhibition.

You are the most welcome to the opening of SAUN(A) contemporary jewellery exhibition on June 21 at 17.00 in A-Galerii, Tallinn, Estonia.

Elo Uibokand and Veera Metso

EXPO 'SAUN(A)' - A-Galerii, Tallinn (Estonia) - 21 Juin-18 juill. 2011 dans Elo UIBOKAND (EE) 254957_1930063425533_1660671088_1917419_7206566_n

Elo Uibokand and Veera Metso have both graduated from Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in Lappeenranta, Finland. They share interest in expressing themselves through art and jewellery and through the same kind of thematical subjects.

The theme for the exhibition is “SAUN(A)” as this is a common and uniting feature in Estonian and Finnish culture. Sauna is a healing place used for relaxing and washing oneself. For us sauna represents warm, intimate and almost sacred atmosphere where one is revealed from disguises. Sauna is a safe and a cosy place to be quiet and take some time off, it’ s a place where different generations meet and knowledge and caring is shared. At the same time a very intimate and public space. Sauna is something that sustains and changes at the same time.

The materials used in the jewellery are the same one may find traditionally in sauna: wood, textile, brick, metal.

Elo Uibokand is working with various materials depending on the concept of the works, although she prefers natural materials like wool, bone, metals, wool, linen, ceramics. For her, jewellery is a very intimate and personal medium to communicate with. Through her work she comments longing, home; the vulnerability of human being, where intimacy, passion, fear, pain and beauty intertwine.

Veera Metso mostly works with natural materials. Her work is mainly material based –she prefers to listen to the material and follow its essence over trying to make the material fit into some purpose. The material and surface structure is the purpose. In addition Veera often has personal ideas behind her work from which she derives her solutions and inspiration. These are much like Elo’s themes: intimacy, touching, fear and spirituality. Body and jewellery being a path to all of them –a place to communicate, a place in-between.

EXPO ‘Dark And Sweet’ – Galeria Articula, Lisboa, Portugal – 17 Juin-30 Juill. 2011

« Dark And Sweet »

You are warmly welcome to the opening of the contemporary jewellery exhibition  » DARK AND SWEET  » with the artists Elo Uibokand and Tiina Rajakallio, at the Gallery ARTICULA, Friday,
17 June , from 6 pm till 9 pm. The exhibition runs till 30 July.

EXPO 'Dark And Sweet' - Galeria Articula, Lisboa, Portugal - 17 Juin-30 Juill. 2011 dans Elo UIBOKAND (EE) 250188_1925331187230_1660671088_1911164_55039_n

 

Elo Uibokand is talented contemporary jewellery artist originally from Estonia. She studied jewellery and stone object design in Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, Lappeenranta, Finland and graduated 2009. Tiina Rajakallio is a Finnish emerging jewellery artist. She got her master’s at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008. They both are living and working in Lappeenranta, Finland. “Dark and Sweet” is their first collaboration together.
The dark side is often related to negative aspects of life. In this exhibition the darkness is necessary; it will highlight the light and sweet characteristics of our being. There are always two sides in every thing, together they’ll form a space where both is equally important and constantly in move, equally dependant on each other, so the harmony will be created.

Elo Uibokand has been exploring the theme by emphasizing the possibility for the encounter, femininity and tenderness in the subject by the brownish natural shades of copper and the oval-like shapes, referring to a human/woman. The cat has been obviously used as a symbol for the theme. Cats may be sweet and soft and purring…and at the next moment will bite your caressing hand. So there are oval shapes, smooth and easy to touch and handle and there are cats meticulously sawn out of the metal with sharp edges, as sharp as the bite of the cat. The cat images have been scratched to the surfaces of the metal, the drawings are subtle, even intimate – one has to come closer in order to see and recognize. Here, unlike in printmaking, the plate itself is the subject together with the earrings and necklaces sometimes sawn out from the same plate.

Tiina Rajakallio’s works are about forgetting as a part of remembering. Things get frighteningly lost and changed in our minds, there are empty spaces, black holes; moments we have no image about anymore. Rajakallio has been focusing on the aspect of catching the lost memory, using forms suggesting the handles, the vessels – abstract and concrete at the same time. The materials (mostly wood) have been treated in a different manner. Rough natural surfaces of the branches, slip surfaces carved and painted… You’ll be able to reach your memory… or it will slip away from your hands. The colour palette is delicately natural; except the deep dark ultramarine blue associated with the subconsciousness, the unknown and far away. There are necklaces and brooches to be found in Rajakallio’s series, somehow familiar and strange.
