« PEU de REINA », une association de 7 créatrices issues de l’Escola Massana

PEU de REINA

« Pie de rey, es la herramienta que utiliza el joyero para medir y calibrar con exacta precisión los diámetros y gruesos de las planchas, hilos y tubos que utiliza durante el proceso de construcción de las joyas.
Peu de Reina, es el juego de palabras en catalán, con el que se hacen llamar un grupo de jóvenes joyeras que se conocieron en su paso por la Escuela Massana de Barcelona y que una vez acabados sus estudios decidieron unirse y formar una asociación para difundir de manera conjunta el trabajo de cada una.
Rosa Batalla, Gemma Draper, Teresa Estapé, Guigui Kohon, Francisca Kweitel, Itxaso Mezzacasa, Rita Ruivo, Estela Saez y Blanca Sánchez, componen esta formación que acoge variedad de discursos y planteamientos de trabajo, desde que se formó en septiembre del año 2000 y que piensa seguir creciendo con nuevas incorporaciones.
Entre sus actividades destacan organizar charlas y talleres, preparar exposiciones y muestras de joyería y posibilitar el intercambio con otros países.
Pero Peu de Reina antes que un grupo de joyeras, es un conjunto de personas que desde el referente de la joyería pretenden hacer un comentario crítico e inteligente de la realidad que las envuelve. Sin utilizar grandes tecnologías, recurriendo únicamente a la herramienta más fantástica que la humanidad ha tenido jamás, las manos conducidas por el poder de la imaginación, construyendo unos objetos que nos han de ayudar a encontrar un humanismo que a menudo parece olvidado. » (Ramón Puig Cuyás)

Forman parte :

« Peu de Reina és una agrupació de set joieres que després de passar per l’Escola Massana van decidir unir-se i treballar conjuntament. Actualment fa set anys que estan juntes i han realitzat diversos projectes, tallers i xerrades sobre la joieria. Tenen una web i un blog on hi podreu trobar coses molt interessants i informació sobre la seva feina. » (blog 18Kt)

EXPO ‘Walking the Gray Area’ Galeria Emilia Cohen, Mexico – 15 April-15 Mai 2010

Walking the Gray Area : A dialog on global mobility, identities and contemporary jewellery

Walking the Gray Area will premiere at Galeria Emilia Cohen in Mexico City, within the frame of the Gray Area Symposium Mexico 2010.

EXPO GRAY - Andrea Wagner Piece- Greener Grass on the Other Side 2010
Andrea Wagner Piece- Greener Grass on the Other Side 2010 – papier maché, silver, paint

Contemporary jewellery, with its exceptional ability to communicate and create associations directly connected to specific cultural and personal settings and backgrounds seems to be circumscribed to a rather westernized discourse. It has become necessary for contemporary jewellery-makers to rethink the ways they connect with others.

40 artists, from an uncertain total number of  involved countries, take a walk on the gray area and explore,  through the already ambiguous field of contemporary jewellery,  issues related to global mobility, identity and territories in dispersion and the way they perceive and have been affected by this phenomena during their rambling around the world.
Walking the Gray Area is a collective, comissioned exhibition curated by Valeria Siemelink and Andrea Wagner, that bring together 20 Latin American and 20 European jewellery makers and artists who ocationally work with jewellery as a medium, into a dialogue about jewellery, global mobility, contemporary identities and its personal and/or collective implications.

The curators of Walking the Gray Area, selected each 20 artists from their respective continents:  Latin America and Europe. The artists were individually selected based on their artistic excellence, technical abilities and creative response to various subjects. As a collective, the group was conformed based on the on the tensions between their discourses and practices, their varied and experimental approach in the use of materials and techniques and on the rich possibilities that lay on the exchange among them. There is, however, one thing that all the invited artists have in common : like the curators, they are or have all been migrants; born in one place, living, working or studying in another one.

The artists work in couples and were paired randomly: the names of the Latin American artists were written on a piece of paper, which was folded and placed in a bowl. The same was done with the names of the European artists. The curators had fun taking turns to pick a name from one bowl and pairing it with a name from the other bowl. 20 couples were formed and, for the last six months they carried out a dialogue through the pages of a weblog specially created for this purpose. The artists conducted their dialogues in ways they find interesting or relevant: exchanging conversations, stories, images and even materials. Besides their periodical postings in the blog, the artists exchanged letters and parcels through the post, organized Skype sessions, phoned and even meet in person. The weblog has allowed the artists to reach a diverse, distant and growing audience, having attracted over 10 thousand visitors from nearly 90 countries.

Through the exchange both artists and curators aimed to respond to a variety of questions: How do they respond to changing definitions of mobility, locality, globalism, migration?  How do the changing conceptions of identities relate to their being and practice? How do they reconcile their roots with their routes? What kind of exchange can take place between artists from areas of the world where contemporary jewellery is perceived and dealt with in such different ways? How can they relate to and diverse, moving, fast changing audience?
