EXPO ‘Sparkle Plenty 7 – Organ/ism’ – Quirk Gallery, Richmond (USA) – 3 Nov.-24 Dec. 2011

Sparkle Plenty 7 : Organ/ism

 http://ih.constantcontact.com/fs066/1101925592468/img/548.jpg

(Daniel DiCapriobrooch )

The world is full of life and organisms that thrive in a multitude of ways. From the seemingly mundane to the flat-out bizarre, « things » have found a way to survive. People are both part of the living world, and manipulators of it. An ever-changing world and life’s ability to adapt is the theme for this exhibition. The work presented shows a reverence for these creatures, the inner spark that ignites life, and the ability to survive.

Curator Daniel DiCaprio talks about this year’s exhibition at Quirk Gallery (on Art Jewelry Forum) :

« Sparkle Plenty is the annual jewelry exhibition put on by Quirk Gallery in Richmond Virginia.  And this year I was given the opportunity to curate it.  As a jeweler I thought of the exhibitions that have inspired me in the past.  I wanted to create a show that displayed my particular interests in jewelry and other new work that I find exciting.  I also wanted to take this chance to exhibit the work of other young jewelers, most of whom are making these exceptional pieces within the first decade of their professional careers.  These are the ones who inspire me and challenge me to keep working in the studio.  These are some of the artists that I feel add interesting new ideas to the larger art jewelry dialog.  I chose the theme of biologically influenced jewelry, the lifeblood of my own work and the narrative that attracts me to certain pieces. The official prospectus of the show went something like this: “The world is full of life and organisms that thrive in a multitude of ways.  From the seemingly mundane to the flat-out bizarre, “things” have found a way to survive.  People are both part of the living world, and manipulators of it.  An ever-changing world and life’s ability to adapt is the theme for this exhibition.  The work presented shows a reverence for these creatures, the inner spark that ignites life, and the ability to survive.”

From this theme came Organ/ism, a collection of eight jewelers exploring the biological world around us.  Jillian Moore was one of the first artists that came to mind.  Jillian’s work has always appeared to me like animals that have evolved through an alternate reality.  Their existence is imagined into being, and inspired by the creatures that you think couldn’t possibly exist.   They are often presented like taxonomical displays or snapshots of them in mid-autopsy.  This format doesn’t try to provide more answers; rather it adds another layer to the mythology of the creature. Hilary Pfeifer’s work offers a similar interpretation of the biological world, presented “somewhere between humor and curiosity”. Her diminutive and charismatic pieces swarm on gallery walls, displaying the multitude of living adaptations.  Her installations of brooches or necklaces can be like looking through a microscope into a thriving Petri dish, one colonized by single cell cartoons.  These masses of form offer a greater understanding of the individuals, and like Jillian’s work, add an additional layer to a complicated story.

Masumi Kataoka’s work comfortably walks a line between beautiful and disturbing.  Her organ forms, made from actual organs (hog gut and leather), are like a miniature trip to the displays of medical curiosities at the Mutter Museum.  They provoke a curiosity in me that always wants to see what is coming up next.  She has said that her inspiration came from Japanese idioms that express where emotions reside.  This is also expressed in English, when an emotion is felt in your gut or in your heart.

Our shared interest in attraction versus repulsion is an underlying theme of this show.  As you can imagine it would be when jewelers work with dismembered body parts.  Märta Mattsson’s jewelry exemplifies this dichotomy.  She presents wearable objects made from what some people fear the most, insects.  Their electroformed and lacquered bodies are encrusted with cubic zirconias, presenting a glamorous version of what is essentially a dissected insect.  This allows you to confront what it is you find attractive or disturbing about the creature. Masako Onodera also thrives on this theme.  Jewelry emerges from the body like additional appendages from the chest or neck.  Materials like leather, felt and skin-toned found objects make this connection all the more realistic.  Masako’s jewelry addresses the human connection to the living world and our part in its story.

Organ/ism is addressed in a more personal matter with Satomi Kawai’s jewelry.  Her interest lies in the biological rhythm of the female body, the way this connects to culture and more specifically, her own childhood. Materials like wool, cotton and silk relate to Satomi’s own family history, while cellular imagery and bodily forms relate to a larger family.  One shaped by evolution.  Emily Watson approaches this theme from yet another direction.  Her work associates the anatomy and geography of the human race.  The work shows how we are both part of the biological world and manipulators of the environment we live in.

I was nervous as a first time curator about the way everything would come together.  Not just if everyone would agree to participate or if we would be able to meet all the deadlines.  I was concerned with viewers making the same connections that I have made, or alternatively, have I simplified an idea so much that I am beating a dead horse?  Although even that might work well with this theme. »

EXPO ‘Ring a Day – 65 artists. 1 year. 365 rings’ – Punch Gallery, Seattle (USA) – 5-29 Mai 2011

Ring a Day
65 artists. 1 year. 365 rings.

May 5 – 29, 2011

Opening Reception: 5 – 8pm
First Thursday, May 5, 2011

As a tie-in to the annual SNAG (Society of North American Goldsmiths) conference, PUNCH presents this totally RAD (Ring a Day) exhibition showcasing 365 rings, accompanied by select photographs to illustrate the diverse, creative and inspiring rings artists have made from Day 1 to Day 365.

Colleen Baran, Kathryn Cole, Shannon Conrad, Nina Gibson and Sara Westermark juried RAD from over 16,000 rings (!!!) submitted to the Ring a Day group on Flickr. The exhibition features 65 international artists with work ranging from ephemeral and conceptual art rings to functional jewelry in both alternative and classic materials.

(Ring 100, Victoria Takahashi, April 10, 2010 – wood, mixed metals, polymer clay, dyed feather, acorn cap)

This project was an open challenge to metalsmiths and other artists across the globe to make one ring a day out of any material for the entire year of 2010. Over the course of the year artists continually added rings, new artists joined the group, ideas morphed into new ideas, artists played off the ideas of other artists, and materials were used in new and unexpected ways. On a daily basis, rings were created, photographed, and posted to the Ring a Day Flickr group. The majority of the artists represented discovered the project through social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, blogs and word of mouth. This project reflects a population of metalsmiths and jewelry makers who are facile with current online technology.

Ring a Day is part of the Society of North American Goldsmith’s yearly conference; an event that brings together 800+ visitors from around the world for exhibitions, artist’s talks, trunk shows and more. SNAG is an international educational non-profit organization that supports and advances the professional practice of artists, designers, jewelers and metalsmiths.

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 ! :-)

« This virtual exhibition presents, for the first time, the « virtual jewel community »: 250 works that, for methodological reasons, have been grouped into five macro-categories based on the material used: metal, paper, plastic, organic and fabrics. Within each of these categories however the initial heterogeneity has been preserved, as a conscious choice as well as well as to value the individuality and the geographical and semantic specificity of each piece. The works presented are those of great masters and young students alike, coming from all aver the world, characterized by different backgrounds and languages, alternately high or low technologies, manual or serial manufacture processes: the red thread that unites them all is the project, the necessary connective tissue in the contemporary babel.
Each of these works contains within it a world which unfolds before our very eyes, gifting us with the preciousness of a reflection and the emotion of a suggestion. Extraordinary pieces, for their making and the ideas behind them, from which we can sense memories of places and lives, shadows of incidental trajectories. And passion: in the form of challenge.
