#MunichJewelleryWeek2017 – EXPO (37) – « Duality of Presence » – Super+Centercourt Gallery, Munich (DE) – 8-14 Mars 2017

(37)  « Duality of Presence« 

Opening Reception: March 8, 6pm

runs 08.03–14.03

Duality of Presence, is a curatorial collaboration between American Professors of Jewelry/Metalsmithing Kerianne Quick and Jess Tolbert.
The exhibition brings together contemporary jewelers and metalsmiths working in the United States, who use specific material and form to tell stories about place, histories, and conveyance.

(37) Duality of Presence

dualityofpresence  takes an explicit look at a generation of American contemporary makers united by the urge to connect to things and the world. As we grapple with the legacy of [alternative] material use in art jewelry in the age of globalization – we are united in the urgency our works express to identify with and bring insight to what it means to be in the world now. This exhibition was born from a noticeable shared concern and strategy expressed in the work of curators, colleagues, and other makers in the field. Within the field of contemporary art jewelry many reject or limit the use of precious materials associated with conventional jewelry in favor of non-traditional materials, focusing on a formal expression that may be conceptual in some way, or simply aesthetic. However some contemporary practitioners, including the artists in this exhibition, are mining material – calling upon origins, sourcing, histories, and/or supply chain information to embed value into the materials they select and use. This excavation is a powerful tool for authenticating and enhancing their underlying concepts. 

Recognizing this shared methodology as an important movement in American contemporary art jewelry and metalsmithing, Duality of Presence defines and explores those engaged with ‘material specificity’ in their making. We position the term ‘material specificity’ as a way of looking towards how material communicates complex and distinct narratives. Thinking of materials as active agents in the creation of meaning pushes past the notion that they are meaningless conduits and asserts a more substantive role; as conveyors of information, bearers of histories, and assemblers of discourses. Material Specific Artists enter into a deliberate collaboration and cooperative act with materials in the pursuit of meaning.

 Duality of Presence defines and explores ‘material specificity’ as a movement in American contemporary art jewellery and metalsmithing where artists aim to reveal hidden narratives through the use of specific materials. The works emphasize the importance of maker-viewer communication, by demonstrating the effectiveness of material centered conveyance, where artists tell stories that connect to the wider world. The works demonstrate a broad range of subject matter, with material specificity as the common thread. In addition to the physical display of objects, the exhibition will include two interactive digital components, a innovative use of virtual reality and an interactive website. Virtual reality headsets integrated into the gallery display will show VR videos produced by selected participating artists using a virtual reality multi-lens camera. Each video will transport the viewer from the gallery to a significant site or moment chosen and filmed by the artist.

#MunichJewelleryWeek2017 – EXPO ‘The Room of Desires’ – Raumwerk, Munich (DE) – 6 Mars-1er Avril 2017

« The Room of Desires »

A joyful interplay of artworks, crafts and design products from Korea and Germany

March 6 to April 1, 2017
Guided Tour with Curator & Artists: March 8, 2017 at 3 p.m.:

Opening: March 6, 2017 at 4 p.m

The room of desires - schmuck 2017(Wings ring by the Korean Jewelry Artist, YOON Dukno)

with Jina Seo‎ (EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1)

Jina Seo‎  -   Schmuck2017

 While the Wunderkammer, or cabinet of curiosities, emerged in the courts of Europe from the 16th century onward, Korea was witnessing the growing popularity of virtual bookshelves in its royal courts, and later among its bourgeoisie. This genre of Korean painting is called Chaekgado, a sort of painted Wunderkammer showing from various perspectives the books and belongings of a scholar.
Although the traditions of the Wunderkammer vary in form and function between Korea and Europe, they have significant aspects in common. In each culture the cabinet of curiosities is an intimate space filled with people’s desires and longings for a foreign world. Both reflect the yearning for precious things and a curiosity for nature as something exotic.
In allusion to the Korean Chaekgado as well as the European Wunderkammer, Keum Art Projects presents the exhibition ‘The Room of Desires’ at the newly opened raumwerk in Munich-Westend. ‘The Room of Desires’ presents paintings, installations and design objects from Korea side by side with those from Germany, creating a cabinet of wishes, longings and desires. The exhibition features supposedly mundane objects such as candle holders, ceramic vessels and writing utensils, along with playful and contemplative installations by visual artists and designers.
The idea of the cosmos, which the Wunderkammer and Chaekgado attempted to capture through objects and books, is being trivialised by the digital revolution in our current age of the internet. In a world where books are collected by Google and desires are fulfilled on the internet, ‘The Room of Desires’ investigates the predilections and yearnings of our time, and tries to rediscover human desire and longings in objects.

Artist Statement
The extraordinary power of objects is obtained, because people believe in them. The more mundane the objects are, the more powerful they become. 
My practice contextualizes the primitive energy that is submerged beneath the layers of garments. When the body is removed, the absence becomes an empty structure. The internal structure is evidence of human existence. It remains full of authentic spirit and fantasy. 
Through the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing materials into symbolic forms, I uncover the hidden intimate and sensual power of humanity. It is a moment when ordinary objects become surreal and uncanny in order to redeem the socially constructed expectations and perceptions.

She just had an exhibition, Unexpected, since  NOV 24th 2016  at Craft Council of British Columbia‎ Gallery, 1386 Cartwright Street, Granville Island; Vancouver V6H 3R8 – An Exhibition by the Vancouver Metal Arts Association

Unexpected explores the strange and sometimes discordant elements that make the viewing, wearing, and making of Contemporary Jewellery an enjoyable endeavor.
The unexpected and Contemporary Art Jewellery are by no means strange bedfellows- viewers and wearers of Contemporary Jewellery often seek out our discipline because it is unusual and extra-ordinary. The unusual, and unusual elements and materials, have become de rigueur in a creative world that continues to embrace post-disciplinary art practices which move beyond medium centered approaches to making.
Participating artists: Lydia Buxton — Melissa Cameron — Bridget Catchpole — Barbara Cohen — Jennifer Crupi – Yoshie Hattori — Kyri Hinkleman — Holland Houdek — Karin Jones — Joshua Kosker — Matt Lambert — Andy Lowrie – Jacqueline Lung — Brooke Marks-Swanson –  Sharon Massey — Louise Perrone- – Lissy Selvius — Jina SeoAric Verrastro — Kari Woo — Lawrence Woodford.
