EXPO ‘Mirror Mirror’ – Espace Solidor, Cagnes-sur-mer (FR) – 23 Juin-23 Sept. 2012

Du 23 juin au 23 septembre : « Mirror Mirror »
Une exposition en hommage à Suzy Solidor, sur une proposition de Jo Bloxham et Benjamin Lignel.

Cagnes-sur-mer« Vingt-neuf artistes, de quatorze pays différents, ont répondu à notre invitation et se sont penchés sur la vie de Suzy Solidor. Nous croyons que la diversité de leurs réponses constitue un tribut à un parcours de vie hors normes, et qu’il est propice de la lire en dialogue avec les tableaux présentés du Château. Miroir déformé de sa collection de portraits, elle la prolonge (ces bijoux et objets sont souvent eux-mêmes des portraits), mais “l’exagère” aussi. En effet, les pratiques représentées ici ne sont pas mimétiques : il n’est pas question de “ressembler” à un sujet, mais d’équiper ses fictions identitaires : “je suis pirate / chanteuse / mangeuse d’hommes et de femmes / malouine échappée à Paris… pour y chanter des histoires de bord de mer”.
Le bijou a ceci de singulier qu’il identifie son propriétaire. Il le désigne, mais l’invente aussi : quel meilleur medium que le bijou pour alimenter la mythomanie légère de Solidor ?
Si elles dialoguent avec Suzy, les oeuvres montrées ici le font aussi avec la pratique du bijou contemporain elle-même. Ce dernier point a guidé nos choix photographiques dans la composition de ce catalogue. Au lieu de reproduire les objets détourés sur fond blanc, ce qui aurait encouragé une lecture sculpturale des pièces, nous avons préféré rendre à chaque objet sa taille relative, et photographier chaque double-page en une seule prise de vue en y laissant les indices d’un déballage récent. Notre propos était de rendre manifeste l’envers du décor des expositions de bijou contemporain : sa dimension logistique, et la réalité de ces colis qui voyagent d’un bout du monde à l’autre pour arriver à Cagnes-sur-Mer (les “boites” s’envoleront à nouveau après cette première exposition vers la galerie Velvet da Vinci de San Francisco). Cette quête de réalisme aura été l’occasion d’établir des correspondances imprévues entre les pièces en vis-à-vis : ultimes miroirs dont nous espérons qu’ils enrichiront la lecture de chaque oeuvre.
L’invitation faite à chaque artiste de créer un bijou “pour quelqu’un” reproduit des schémas de commande très conventionnels dans les arts appliqués : on verra cependant dans les pages suivantes à quel point leurs réponses ne le sont pas.«

EXPO ‘Ultrabody’ – Milano (IT) – 19 Avril-17 Juin 2012

Ultrabody – 208 opere tra arte e design

EXPO 'Ultrabody' - Milano (IT) - 19 Avril-17 Juin 2012 dans Beatrice BROVIA (IT) copertina-catalogo

ULTRABODY. 208 opere tra Arte e Design è una mostra tematica, dedicata all’influenza che il corpo umano ha esercitato nella creatività contemporanea, spaziando tra l’arte e il design, ma anche tra l’architettura, l’arredamento, le arti applicate, la moda e i gioielli.
L’iniziativa, curata da Beppe Finessi, promossa dal Comune di Milano – Cultura, Moda, Design,  presenta una ricca selezione di lavori realizzati dai più significativi protagonisti della scena internazionale del design e delle arti visive che, a partire dal “corpo”, riescono a coinvolgere altre discipline come l’antropologia, la sociologia, il costume, la società, la tecnologia e l’estetica del nostro tempo.
Il percorso espositivo, ideato da Peter Bottazzi, è organizzato in 3 grandi gruppi tematici corrispondenti ai 3 ambienti delle Sale del Castello Sforzesco: Alludere al Corpo, Assecondare il Corpo, Superare il Corpo.

 

ULTRABODY. 208 WORKS FROM ART TO DESIGN, a thematic exhibition devoted to the influence exerted by the human body on contemporary creativity, ranging from art to design, but also taking in architecture, furniture, the applied arts, fashion and jewellery.
Curated by Beppe Finessi, promoted by the City of Milan Department of Culture, Fashion and Design, brought about together with Peugeot and organised by Civita, the exhibition shows a rich selection of works by leading names on the international design and visual arts scene that, starting from the “body”, manage to involve such other disciplines as contemporary anthropology, sociology, costume, society, technology and aesthetics.
Devised by Peter Bottazzi, the exhibition experience is organised in three macro thematic groups, one in each of the Sforza Castle’s Visconti Rooms: Alluding to the Body, Humouring the Body, Overcoming the Body.
The graphic identity for Ultrabody is the work of Leonardo Sonnoli, the internationally celebrated graphic designer and winner of an ADI Compasso d’Oro Award in 2011, who created a new custom font for the event, calibrated to match the topics expressed by the works selected.

Alluding to the Body, from representation to metaphor features some venerable icons…… Here, visitors can also find bracelets with traces and body prints by the maestro of contemporary jewellery Gerd Rothmann, the enigmatic proposals by Iris Eichenberg and Bruno Munari’s Talking Forks that repeat the gestures we habitually make with our hands, transmuting from tools for eating into elements of communication.

Humouring the Body, from form to function contains works that take their starting point from correctly matching the needs expressed in an object’s use to giving it the right form, suggesting possible new relations between those objects and the body : like (for jewelry) gloves/jewels by the group Bless, or Matteo Ragni’s Patch bookmark-ring for De Vecchi, which readers can use to keep the book they are reading open with just one hand.

Overcoming the Body hosts the more experimental designs and works, including several that are irreverent and even provocative, capable of leaving visitors with an uncanny, disturbed feeling. These range from Naomi Filmer’s many experiments with the idea of original jewellery, to the crash helmet-monitors designed by James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau, which play with the principle of identity between partners to a dialogue, a variety of body ornaments created by Imme van der Haak

This collar which alludes to human entrails is one of the first works by Beatrice Brovia in the world of designer jewellery. Her steps are sure and definite, and show no trace of the prevailing conformity. Her careful reflections are expressed as visually striking ornaments to be worn.

Bringing together conceptual modes and formal value: in these sculptures to be worn, the modules which make up the collar have
been designed around a face, thus establishing a close emotional relationship between the jewel and the body wearing it.

A real hula-hoop is transformed into a perverse toy, adding rose thorns to its inner circumference. A pertinent exercise on the borderline between matter and emptiness, with a smile that is transformed into a wound.

EXPO ' SENSE - MAPPING' - Galerie Platina - 1er Juin-18 Aout 2012 dans Exposition/Exhibition Iris_invitation

1 June – 18 August 2012
Platina will be closed in July, For opening hours please have a look under info.

« - How is it that a color is able to evoke the sensations of has? And how does weight, not touched, not carried, trigger a strengthening of our muscles? And why would a visible, endless repetition of handling stretch the notion of time, and have a sound to it, and a rhythm still active after the work has ended?
How can remnants of process be froze in the memory of surfaces and bring back a sense of movement?
How can we feel the pulling and stitching in our hands, how does the process of crafting work enable our hands to think, or is it the hand at work which informs our thinking?
The unconscious recognition of tactility, sound, size, smell and temperature of environments is what allows us to differentiate one context from another.
These contexts are filled with the event-ness of material: materials in conversation with each other, striking up conversations.
How do I make sense of my surroundings and how do I sense it?
The intermingling and exchange of senses, conscious and unconscious are the construction elements of what I make of a visual encounter.
The puzzling together, and being puzzled, this process of making sense is what I am interested in.
I avoid the need to make sense of an object instantly, the event should not be linear, but rather gather around, departing and reentering the encounter with the objects.
The embodiments of objects are the sensation I try to find in the uttermost silence – in the presence of work.
The event should be work not consumption.

SCHMUCK 2012 ‘Corpus’ – Galerie Spektrum, Munich (DE) – 16 mars-28 avril 2012

Ruudt Peters – Corpus

 SCHMUCK 2012 'Corpus' - Galerie Spektrum, Munich (DE) - 16 mars-28 avril 2012 dans Allemagne (DE) peters-lumbusRuudt PetersCorpus « Limbus »

« Between body and spirit.
Flat, amorphous shapes in subdued shades of dark-grey. Ruudt Peters’ new jewellery appears to be austere and abstract until the eye is drawn to the occasional sharp edges, or intentionally modelled surfaces. Peters is always on a quest for spirituality in his work as his earlier work has demonstrated. One line of approach he did not consider in the past was Christianity. Was it too predictable a choice, or was it too close for comfort in the artist’s view?
From the abundance of motifs Peters chose what lies at the heart of Christianity: Jesus as the saviour of mankind. For a thousand years artists have searched for an apt representation of the crucifixion: from the simplicity of Romanesque depictions to an increasingly explicit image of a virtually naked man. The body of the Christ figure becomes increasingly pronounced: muscles starting to develop, the abdomen curving, the loincloth losing its innocence. The religious symbol takes on increasingly complex meanings.
It was a challenge for Ruudt Peters to add his own interpretation to this iconography. In a study in which the crucifix was initially sawn into bits and pieces and then joined together again instinctively, the artist was not only guided by religious connotations. Other aspects present themselves: the meeting of bodies, expressiveness of touch, intimacy. In the final product Peters stresses abstract, veiled shapes on the front and keeps the recognizable parts for the sides and back.
Western society is becoming increasingly secularized, and Ruudt Peters CORPUS jewellery hits the spectator like a bolt out of the blue. At its first presentation at the COLLECT art fair the reactions were unusually outspoken. Curiosity, amazement and appreciation competed for first place, often combined with wariness about the wearability of the pieces. For should you judge this work on the basis of the artistic stament made by the maker, or as a personal testimony? Is it about body or spirit? In his work the artist extends a hand to the spectators, ultimately it is their responsibility to provide an interpretation and decide on the value of a work of art. «   Ward Schrijver  (© Galerie Rob Koudijs)

EXPO ‘LINGAM’ – Galerie du WCC-BF, Mons (Belgique) – 8 mai-22 aout 2010

EXPO 'LINGAM' - Galerie du WCC-BF, Mons (Belgique) - 8 mai-22 aout 2010 dans Adam GRINOVICH (SE) n119554584726389_6290

« L’exposition LINGAM met en scène 121 interprétations d’un symbole ancestral de fertilité : le lingam.
Représentation symbolique du phallus et du dieu Shiva, le Lingam représente la force créatrice à la base de l’existence de tout l’univers. Dans les religions hindoue et bouddhique, c’est par le biais du lingam que l’on honore quotidiennement le dieu Shiva, la représentation phallique n’y est nullement mise en relation avec le sexe.
Dans la culture occidentale, le phallus évoque la sexualité et le plaisir. Alors qu’il fut un temps où le Christianisme et la culture judéo chrétienne mettaient également en avant la sexualité comme acte créateur positif. Depuis la séparation du corps et de l’esprit, cet aspect en a été banni et d’une référence sacrée, la sexualité est devenue un mal nécessaire.
Avec l’exposition LINGAM, son commissaire, le plasticien
Ruudt Peters (NL), désire rétablir cette signification initiale ainsi que sa dimension spirituelle.

Udi Lagallina - Lingam et son yoni. Wood, gold, pearls, textile.

Partant de sa fascination pour le lingam dont il a découvert l’existence il y a dix ans lors de voyages en Asie du Sud-est, il a eut envie de proposer à des artistes et designers contemporains de créer un objet symbolisant la fertilité, chaque créateur interprétant le sujet en se basant sur sa propre sensibilité et sa perception personnelle du thème.
121 créations ont ainsi vu le jour et sont présentées dans une scénographie où la signification originelle du lingam est soulignée par la présentation des objets contemporains en compagnie de leurs modèles originaux. »

EXPO ‘Materia e colore’ – Studio GR20, Padova (Italie) – 16 avril-15 mai 2010

Gioielleria Contemporanea – Materia e colore / Material and Colour
Omaggio a Sandra Marconato
……. quando la sostanza incide sulla forma e diventa arte

EXPO GR-20 - 16avril-16mai 2010_ Padova

Artists: Karl Fritsch, Bussi Buhs, Beppe Kessler, Annamaria Zanella, Barbara Paganin, Stefano Marchetti, Iris Eichenberg, Ruudt Peters, Lam de Wolf, Robert Smit, Isabella Facco, Silvia Walz, Lisa Walker, Fritz Maierhofer, Fabrizio Tridenti, Sandra Marconato.

« The exhibition focuses on a phenomenon which, originating from artistic experimentation in the 1990s, has gradually outlined itself more clearly in the first decade of this century. Organic, mineral and artificial matter now has a central role : it bears creative stimuli associated with the analysis of its own specificity, which gives rise to fantastic, symbolistic and naturalistic formulations. All materials may be subjected to examination, which inspires free, unregulated schemes devoid of preconstituted ideas. Artists like Karl Fritsch, Bussi Buhs, Beppe Kessler, Annamaria Zanella, Barbara Paganin and Stefano Marchetti in his recent works elaborate images that are profoundly affected by transformations and pulsations of matter which their own rules and energy set into motion. Other artists, such as Iris Eichenberg, Ruudt Peters, Lam de Wolf and Robert Smit choose very different materials: they combine metals with wood, paint, fabric, glass and minerals – the latter in their morphological entirety – and join them with conceptual and symbolic associations related to individualistic representations and esoteric, mythological and historical expressions. Still others convey their messages through objects – sometimes selected as true objets trouvés – the assemblage of which becomes installation-jewellery: such are the works by Isabella Facco, Silvia Walz and Lisa Walker. Lastly, there are artists who have skilfully associated their experience with images defined both by geometric elaborations and by mechanical constructions, like Fritz Maierhofer and Fabrizio Tridenti. Recalling the great Minimalist and Constructivist movements, they carry out experiments with materials that give them freedom of expression: Maierhofer uses Corian, a plastic substance, and Tridenti upsets perfect mechanisms by introducing rust, paints and pigments that jeopardise their functional structures. The exhibition also displays Bussi Buhs’s sculptures and one of Barbara Paganin’s installations.
With this exhibition, Studio GR.20 aims at emphasising the importance of substance over form, and in this context pays homage to Sandra Marconato. The artist uses evanescent materials like gauze, paper, tempera and acrylics to create sculptures and installations that the Paduan public already admired at exhibitions in the Palazzo della Ragione (16th Biennale del Bronzetto e Piccola Scultura, Padua, 1995) and at the Museum of Palazzo del Monte (anthological exhibition, 1996).
