« About the exhibition :  A former student, Isabel Dammermann, took it upon herself to make a special event for the teacher Manfred Bischoff who inspired so many. At the same time, she has managed to create a very interesting exhibition that is on display during the Munich Jewellery week 2016. »

Jewellery artists from 22 countries all over the world come together in a memorial exhibition for Manfred Bischoff who passed away a year ago. At some point or other, they have all been taught by Manfred at Alchimia, contemporary jewellery school in Florence, and have each submitted one piece to the exhibition that honours a great teacher.
German born Manfred Bischoff lived in Tuscany in a house that was in itself a piece of exquisite art. Its magical interior made a natural and perfect framework for his work that has been called by many names: sensual, poetic, lyrical, great, intimate, strong, beautiful, satirical and always surprising. He worked in 22K gold, as pure as he could manage and still maintain a rigidity in the metal that allowed him to execute his ideas in delicate and well crafted pieces, often accompanied with subtle pink coral and drawings.
His dedication to the language of jewellery and his visions were most likely one of the reasons that the Alchimia school managed to become known and respected internationally in a relatively short time span.

The teacher
« As a student at Alchimia, you never really met Manfred until the third year. He was a giant figure who arrived to the narrow street in Florence on Tuesdays. He spent time with the older students, watched the world from behind his sunglasses when he leaned onto the wall at coffee breaks, and then he vanished again.
It was not until you were there yourself – in your final year – that you met the myth and began to appreciate his capacity to engage in your work and to show you how you might develop it. He was a surprisingly selfless teacher, and during critiques in the small classroom he managed to create a space for you and him to engage in a dialogue about your work that was stripped of second agendas and based solely on how he could help you to become a better artist.
It is only later, you come to understand how exceptionally truthful and helpful he tried to be in order to make you grow as a person and as an artist. »

EXPO ‘Staring : in HINDSIGHT’ – Die Neue Sammlung (Danner-Rotunde), Munich (DE) – 14-20 Mars 2014

SCHMUCK 2014 – Munich – 12-18 Mars 2014

Staring : in HINDSIGHT / SUNY NP METAL

Vernissage 14 Mars, 19 Uhr

STARING: The State University of New York at New Paltz

THE METAL PROGRAM AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT NEW PALTZ IN COOPERATION WITH DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG – THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN MUSEUM MUNICH

Designed in response to the physical space that houses the exhibition, in Staring is an exercise in looking, finding, seeing and knowing.
This gallery, informally referred to as ‘under the stairs’, is an interstitial space – formed by the galleries that surround it. It is a negative of a positive, the leftover from a functional form. It lies in-between, forming the way one considers what lies on the other side of the concrete divide, what is revealed and what is hidden. As the risers and runners of multiple staircases surround the viewer, form becomes rhythmic, linear texture, closing in underfoot and overhead. In this space one is simultaneously astonished, disoriented, and mystified. While not originally conceived as an exhibition space, through imaginative thinking it became so.
As a marginal space it is not confined by traditional boundaries or conceptions. This notion of working the margin is akin to the creative strategies taught at New Paltz. Students are expected to engage the traditions of jewelry and hollowware, working within the field’s “architecture”, but not to mimic it; in dialogue through making they question function, value, and relevance to our somatic, conceptual and incorporeal experience. We look backward and forward at the same time, challenging and promoting the practice of making.
Provoked by the space itself, we ask the viewer to consider what it means to be ‘under the stairs’. In a domestic setting it is a space to keep things that are only used occasionally, or perhaps forgotten. It is a psychic space, the space of the Odradek, a space where fear of the unknown is manifested. Within this space discoveries are made, surprises can be found, and occasionally we lose even ourselves.

DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG

Talk on 16 March, 11 Uhr : Pravu Mazumdar: Understanding Surfaces. On Jewellery and Identity.
Pinakothek der Moderne. www.die-neue-sammlung.de

Human surfaces are hybrid objects involving biological and cultural elements like dress, makeup, jewellery, gait, skin, posture, voice. Contemporary societies manifest not only surfaces of products, but also human surfaces functioning as ‘packaging’ and emitting discourses on interiority that place humans within limits and define their individuality.
However, the surfaces are not only readable. They are also produced on a daily basis, not only by the individuals themselves or the global beauty industry at large, but also a whole political machinery of identity, gleaning certain constant, measurable and recognisable traits of individuality from the surface discourses, documenting them in passports and identity cards and locking in modern individuals within the shell of their identity. Modern jewellery – in its contemporary, critical manifestations and its inherent tendency of breaching tradition – can break open the shell of identity and involve individuals in an open play of enhancement and change of masks. It can indeed be understood as a means of counteracting the pressure towards identity in daily life in modern societies.
Such ideas will be presented with examples and images from the area of contemporary jewellery art.

EXPO ’1X1 collective’ – Vander A Gallery, Bruxelles (BE) – 31 Mai-30 Juin 2012

1×1 Collective is a project born in Florence in 2010 to promote and diffuse contemporary art jewelry through exhibitions, fairs, and events. It is an open and ever-changing collective of independent jewelry artists.

Artistic and technical research and the freedom of experimentation make the jewelry gain new functions and meanings.

For this exhibition at vander A gallery in Brussels, they present 8 international artists, very different one from the other, all met in Alchimia school, Florence, wellknowned for its experimental jewellery and design schollarship.

1X1 collective1×1 Collective is open to collaborations, in the jewelry field as outside, to find new ways for showing original works to a wider public.
1×1 Collective changes its shape, leader and location following each project. It is an informal group of people based on active involvement, cooperation and sharing of ideas, knowledge and skills for the common goal of understanding and being understood.
For this exhibition there is not a theme because they want to focus on each artist’s personal approach and research, they believe that each one’s individuality and autonomy is one of the strenght of contemporary art jewelry and that it gets highlighted through the free dialogue of a collective exposition.

Firenze – la scuola di gioelleria ALCHIMIA – Mostra juin 2009

Les jeunes arrivent ! et ATTENTION! … ils sont doués …. !!!

Firenze. Il design del gioiello alla Galleria Alessandro Bagnai. ‘Outsider Project’ incontra la scuola di gioelleria Alchimia. (juin 2009)

http://www.eosarte.eu/public/2009/06/alchimia3.jpg

« Per chi desidera distinguersi ornando il proprio corpo con originali creazioni artistiche alla Galleria Alessandro Bagnai dal 12 al 30 Giugno sono in mostra una serie di gioelli ideati e realizzati da 12 studenti della scuola ALCHIMIA di Firenze.
Si tratta di spille, orecchini, bracciali e collane composti da vari materiali: legno, carta, rame, plastica, etc. Tra assemblaggio, pittura e decorazione prendono vita forme e volumi stravaganti che a tratti rendono difficile comprendere il loro utilizzo. Niente hanno di fazioso e sofisticato. Alcuni si compongono su linee morbide ed essenziali, altri hanno forme più “colorate” adatte a coloro a cui piace farsi notare.
Quello che è interessante è che dietro a ciascun oggetto vige un messaggio. I gioielli della tedesca Anne Wiedau parlano di vita urbana (sono pezzetti di legno raccolti per strada), quelli della coreana Eun Jae Baek ricalcano forme della natura come l’albero; altri fanno riferimento al ricordo o catturano momenti di vita quotidiana come nel caso di Marina Elenskaya.
Queste creative elaborazioni dimostrano come l’arte possa risiedere non solo nelle cosa da contemplare ma anche da indossare o più in generale da usare. Come afferma Bruno Munari: “Non ci deve essere un arte staccata dalla vita: cose belle da guardare e cose brutte da usare. Se quello che usiamo ogni giorno è fatto con arte (non a caso o a capriccio) non avremo niente da nascondere

http://www.eosarte.eu/public/2009/06/wiendau.jpghttp://www.eosarte.eu/public/2009/06/elenskaya.jpg
Anne Wiedau  –  Marina Elenskaya

Con il programma Outsider Project nato nel 2008 la galleria si rivolge all’ “arte pratica” o meglio all’ “inter-mondo” – come lo definisce l’ideatrice del progetto Antonella Villanova – quel luogo “outsider” in cui si incontrano arte e design, funzionalità ed artisticità.
La scuola di gioielleria ALCHIMIA, realtà situata nel cuore di Firenze, offre una valida formazione artigianale e culturale nel campo dell’oreficeria contemporanea e soprattutto un interscambio (ancora raro nel panorama fiorentino) con realtà internazionali.

Oltre a vantare l’insegnamento del famoso artista orafo Manfred Bischoff gode infatti di importanti collaborazioni con Accademie, Istituti di Formazione ed Università, in Italia e all’estero.
