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.

Alchimia Graduation show 2013 – Florence (Italy) – 20-21-22 Juin 2013

Alchimia Graduation show 2013

Human
we are
What makes us human?
We analyse, we process, we try, we fail, we try again, we develop, we change direction, we fail, we gather our strength again, we start all over.
We look at things upside down gaining new perspectives.
This is how we grow.
Going through this cycle over an over makes us human.
This is how we create, how we create jewellery.
Using our experiences, thoughts, impressions, our life.

Alchimia graduation show 2013

11 students [ ] are presenting their graduation work in an exciting installation in the Alchimia front gallery. An installation to demonstrate their state of mind, their continuos research, their acceptance of failure as a neccessary condition for growth, their desire to grow, and their curiosity in the existant and the maybe ……..

Hazardous Experiments

 May 5 to May 7, Opening: May 4 at 9p.m.

 

« Mystery, curiosity, try-try-try, risky, trust, transformation, strange…
Do you think a plastic cup is a piece of jewellery? Probably not.
Every material has it’s hidden value. You just have to look for it.
You could jump on it for 30 minutes, shoot it from a distance of 25 meters, bake it in an oven for 3 days, try to plant it and wait for it to grow or you could just make it explode.
Maybe, if you are lucky and patient enough that plastic cup could actually turn into something precious and unexpected, which will lead you to your piece of jewellery. »
