Enfoncer le CLOU ………….. NAILS (you know …,but not nails…)

Enfoncer le CLOU ………….. ou … « DES CLOUS ! » ?

ne dit-on pas aussi « lui river son clou » ? donc, définitivement,  je vous « rive votre clou » !! :  de toute façon, et de façon certaine, le clou est à la base du bijou. Ne parle-t-on pas de « clous d’oreille » ? donc, voici le ….. « clou du spectacle »  (avant que tout cela ne soit « mis au clou » ………  vous qui avez l’air de penser que cela « ne vaut pas un clou » !) (cf définitions du mot « clou »)

* (nails, les « clous », but NOT the nails « les ongles » …)

« Dans un monde dominé par le désir de plaire, la séduction peut parfois être ressentie comme une obligation à laquelle l’on aimerait pouvoir se soustraire.
Ce collier à clous a donc été spécialement conçu pour les esprits indépendants, les solitaires heureux et pour toutes les personnes qui ne souhaitent tout simplement pas faire de rencontres.
Il envoie un message clair et fort pour dire «Ne m’approchez pas». Idéal pour les soirées pesantes, il est particulièrement indiqué lors de rendez-vous ennuyeux et convient également lors d’une rupture amoureuse. »

EXPO ‘The Beauty Chase’ – Espace le Carré, Lille (FR) – 16 Nov. 2012-13 janv. 2013

The Beauty Chase – Parcours esthétiques du bijou contemporain

Commissariat : Valeria Accornero
En collaboration avec la Direction des Arts Visuels et des Expositions de la Ville de Lille
Exposition visible du 16.11.2012 au 13.01.2013

The Beauty Chase – Parcours esthétiques du bijou contemporain. Ce n’est pas Un diamant gros comme le Ritz qui rend fantastique le bijou contemporain, mais la capacité de l’artiste à créer des mondes imaginaires avec les matériaux les plus divers. Le doute et l’innovation, la recherche et l’idée sont au centre du bijou contemporain, il n’y a pas de chemin tracé à suivre. Dans le parcours de la création, le caractère précieux tient donc plus au projet et au travail qu’au matériau “brut” utilisé. Papier, bois, plastique, or ou titane, tissu ou verre : la matière choisie est déjà un mode d’expression esthétique avec l’envie d’être “autre”. C’est justement là l’aspect « fantastique » du bijou contemporain : l’envie de travestissement et de transformation qui le rend surprenant. Le plastique ne semble plus en être, la résine devient bois, l’or se transforme en se mêlant au tissu, au plexiglass, au pigment, le verre révèle sa transparence là où et quand l’artiste le veut. Très développé en Europe du Nord, peu connu par le grand public en France où la tradition de la haute joaillerie éclipse, peut être, tout le reste, le bijou contemporain expérimente, ose, provoque, crée avec des résultats poétiques, irrévérencieux ou ironiques, spectaculaires voire féériques. Et, si on veut emprunter les mots de Tzvetan Todorov, en sa présence: “on accepte le surnaturel”.

EXPO ‘MicroCosmi Preziosi’ – Boffi Barberini, Roma (IT) – 29 Mai-1er Juin 2012

MicroCosmi Preziosi

MicroCosmi Preziosi” is an exibition of 12 Italian designers about the contemporary jewel, to be held from the 29th of May to the 1st ofJune 2012.

MicroCosmi Preziosi -Gioielli contemporanei

Jewels as microsculptures to wear, with plastic, metal, precious and semi precious stones.
MicroCosmi … because every jewel may represent a universe, a world, a history to tell and to be told, where the artist can go beyond his bounds to test new forms
Emotions …. which emerge slowly…. from the physical contact, from the possession!
Jewels thought as small worlds, in which everyone can find a new nuance..unique realities with a story to tell, which  amaze us!
Jewels have a magic power ….. they express a vital force, our passion beyond their value….
A jewel can blossom by the ability of  the mind …. by the skill of the hands and by the warm of fire.
The  daring trends, which have  emerged from the last VicenzaOro Exhibition, encourage us to abandon  tradition for the new proposals of the contemporary jewel, which are in constant evolution.
Infact, the creation af a  jewel  is not based on any clear models, but it is the result of a  continuous research and testing.

The following are some of the most important emerging artists in this field:
Francesca GabrielliLuigi MarianiClaudio RanfagniLuisa BruniChiara ScarpittiFernando BettoStefania LucchettaOrietta BomèJános Gábor VargaAgnieszka  KierstanEnrico FranchiBarbara Uderzo.
 

« Their vocation, like their origin, is extremely varied,  it is the result of geographical and training differences, but  it also shows surprising elements of union, as the reflection on the material and on the volume ». (Alba Cappellieri)
As a consequence of that, jewels are  the result of suggestions and  intuitions …. some of them are more traditional, some others are definitely handicraft, others are the result of designers and goldsmiths work.

EXPO ONLINE at JEWELLERY SCAPE -  METAL section dans Agata BIENKOWSKA (PL) enter

« 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.

COUP de COEUR ! travaux de ferronnerie de Janos Gabor VARGA

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,ETSY.com,Hongrie (HU),Janos Gabor VARGA (HU),metal — bijoucontemporain @ 1:00

« I think IRON is a beautiful material, with a very unique character. The only jewellery that I wear is an iron ring. I wear it all the time, except when I work at the farm. I sleep, I take a shower, I wash the dishes wearing it. And after 5 years it is still shiny! The only thing is, after getting it wet I need to wipe it. At the beginning it left a mark on my finger, but after a while, when we have « oxidized to each other », there was no mark anymore. Iron jewellery needs care – just like silver does. Not being a precious metal it is more reactive with the environment and with you: If you get ill it will leave a dark mark on your finger again. Probably because of the changed acidity of the skin or your jewel worrying for you :) . When you swim in the sea the same happens, unless you rinse it with fresh water and wipe it immediately. I think it is nice to live together with such a strong and sensitive metal.
My AXE RINGS are not meant to hurt anyone. Just as my poison rings are not meant to kill anyone or to make her/him sick. They have symbolic power, like an amulet. Actually they are amulets. The experience of wearing them – the shape, the material, the touch, the smell, the weight – gives you strength to carry out positive and creative things. Or negative. That’s not my responsibility anymore, but it still doesn’t mean to punch someone in the head! The fact that the axe rings are made of solid iron, they really do have an edge, the poison rings can really hide something, it gives you a prickly feeling, and after all, like most jewellery is supposed to do, they look good.
For me they have a rather personal meaning: I worked in the forest with animals, and the axe, hacker, hoe and other tools are the tools and symbols of struggling for life.
I want to give you the same feeling, like the little child feels, when he buckles on his plastic sword, and he thinks that he is powerful. That is a serious thing! It is natural, and we never outgrow it, at best we might deny it. But we are big guys/girls now, we are not allowed to do that anymore… Still, art often gives you similar power just simple with colors, shapes, voices. If you can wear these artifacts, I call them amulets, and that power will stay with you all the day, every day. :) «  (Janos Gabor VARGA) (quel beau nom ! :-) )

La mostra« Archeo-gioielli contemporanei«  si terrà al Museo Archeologico di Anzio (IT) dal 30 maggio al 6 giugno.  Per partecipare a questa iniziativa l’artista deve realizzare un gioiello contemporaneo con qualsiasi tipo di tecnica e materiale ispirato alla classicità romana, iscrivendosi entro oggi, 10 aprile 2010, all’indirizzo mail archeogioielli@agc-it.org

EXPO 'Archeo-gioielli contemporanei' Museo Archeologico di Anzio (IT) - 30 mai-6 juin 2010 dans Adrean BLOOMARD (IT) 27815_1380532406222_1619292128_959537_1841931_n

Una esposizione significativa sia da un punto di vista culturale che territoriale; quella che può sembrare una contraddizione, l’archeologico-contemporaneo, costituisce in realtà un confronto forte tra passato e presente la cui finalità espositiva è quella di mettere in dialogo l’arte classica con il gioiello contemporaneo.
Il concetto che si vuole sottolineare è che l’Arte, come tutta la Storia, è un continuum temporale, e dimostrare così che, anche se con linguaggi differenti, la capacità espressiva e i concetti che sono alla base di essa restano sostanzialmente invariati nel tempo. A conferma di ciò basta osservare l’evoluzione del gioiello contemporaneo che è sempre più spesso ospite dei più importanti musei grazie alla sua altissima espressione artistica.
