EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jonathan HENS

(58) No Expiry

ALAFRANGADimitar Stankov seeks a way to depict the sound images emerging in human mind after its interaction with certain sound or traditional Bulgarian folklore music combining craftsmanship and innovative technology. The music represents the traditional manners and it can be used to chase away evil spirits or to bring happiness and joy. This duality inspires him to materialize the sound that can be heard but cannot be felt by touch.NIGHTLIGHT SKIN: Jonathan Hens’ work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings. His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it.

NIGHTLIGHT SKIN  STATEMENT
« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the races/ cultures/ subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to create his signature, by engraving, pouncing and printing, he creates a new dimension to the material.
After researching different kinds of sub-and material-cultures/ religion/ races he started to experiment with skins. By confronting those materials together, we can translate it as an extension between all human society.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self- expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference between the sexes/ humans/ religions and cultures.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jonathan Hens – the HIGHWAY of success !

Jonathan Hens

I discovered his works at fall 2013 during PARIS – CIRCUITS BIJOUX , at the exhibition ‘Precieux Passages’ at Bibliothèque Forney. A first « face to face » with a (very) STRONG creation !

Strong creation that encountered SUCCESS : in 2012 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents his works, together with some other students, at SIERAAD 2012 Amsterdam, we saw his works at Marzee Graduate show 2012 AND 2013, an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2014 (« Lights ON/Lights OFF » 3 stations Galerie, Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2015 (« Oscure sacrifices« , together with Jorge Manilla, at 3STATIONS,  Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2016 (« Trans-it » – 3STATIONS,  Munich), has been selected  for TALENTE 2016, Munich, he is presented at AUTOR 2016 (the International Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucarest, Romania) ……
This is not the « Route of Success », it’s an HIGHWAY !!!

EXPO ‘Swedes and Belgian Blues’ – Gallery Four, Göteborg (SE) – 2 Sept.-1er Oct. 2016

Swedes and Belgian Blues

Four Gothenburg, Sweden

Opening: September 2nd, 17-21

FOUR - Swedes and Belgian Blues

Chocolate, beer and Jean-Claude Van Damme, waffles, the European parliament and Brussels sprouts. Sadly enough people probably also associate Belgium with terror and cattle with breeding problems.
When we think of Belgium we think of jewellery! Not only of the diamonds in Antwerp, but predominantly of the eminent art jewellery scene. Belgium has some of the most famous contemporary jewellery schools, – galleries and – artists. Playful, thought provoking and with an elegant confidence, the art jewellery culture is vibrant and powerful.
Galerie Beyond (formerly Beyond Fashion) is situated in the central parts of Antwerp and has been run by Karin De Buysere and René Darmont for 15 years. The work of the artists that the gallery represents has a conceptual strength and challenges the traditional perception of what jewellery is. The connection to the lively fashion- and art field is unmistakable while classic goldsmithing seams more distant.
The exhibition ”Swedes and Belgian Blues” is a co-operation between Galerie Beyond and Four, showing work by 5 Belgian and 5 Swedish artists. Sweden is also a well-known country in the international jewellery world and we also have an influential fashion scene. Are there any similarities? Are there any differences? To connect a certain aesthetic or a style to a nationality might be impossible in a society where the global art scene is only a browser away. But is there something of a local culture? Swedes and Belgian Blues will be shown in Antwerp in January 2017.

  

Participating artists:
Tine De RuysserJonathan HensArnaud SprimontAnneleen SwillenKaren VanmolKarin Roy AnderssonLinnéa ErikssonHanna LiljenbergAnna Norrgrann – Sanna Svedestedt Carboo.

Karin Roy Andersson - brooch from 2016 made of recycled plastics (from lunch trays), thread and steel - FOUR: Karin Roy Andersson – My brooch from 2016 made of recycled plastics (from lunch trays), thread and steel –
« Since I was a kid I have had a strong interest in animals, especially fish and birds. I love their shape, their movements and the pattern of the feathers and scales, their bodies, faces and exceptional behaviour. The pieces on show at « Swedes and Belgian Blues » are made of plastics collected from garbage containers and ditch-banks. I keep my eyes open when I go to the hairdresser; I search in my friends’ bathrooms and fridges – you have to be observant if you are going to find that perfect jewellery material!

Sanna Svedestedt Carboo-  Building blocks, 2013, necklace made of naturally tanned leather Sanna Svedestedt Carboo -  Building blocks, 2013, necklace made of naturally tanned leatherSanna Svedestedt Carboo works with leather. In this material she create sharp and exact shapes that look heavy but are surprisingly light. Svedestedt Carboo uses old leather shaping techniques and Cuir Bouilli, adding a contemporary expression to a classic craft tradition. With the right touch, boiling hot water and quite a lot of stubbornness, the leather is transformed into the desired form. « I am drawn to the combination of controlled shapes and soft organic flow, and the clash that takes place in the meeting of the two. »

bracelets by Tine de RuysserTine de Ruysser - Dollar Bracelets, 2016,  made of banknotes
Paper money came into existence because people did not want to carry their gold around. Through time the relation between money and gold has been close but the connection has changed. Now we are hesitating about having too much money in our wallets but many of us are happy to show wealth, status or image by wearing gold. For this piece banknotes are used as a precious material. The notes are put together to create an object. The banknotes are not damaged, so the object can be taken apart and returned to the monetary value of the materials. Just like precious metals.

 Anneleen Swillen - Weights pending 2, 2016, necklace made of resin, plaster, concrete, cotton, rubber and natural stonesAnneleen Swillen – Weights pending 2, 2016, necklace made of resin, plaster, concrete, cotton, rubber and natural stones
Inspired by the way daily goods are consumed and (re)presented, Anneleen Swillen draws attention to the intrinsic but often unnoticed qualities of everyday objects. Weights, pending is an artistic research into both formal and functional potential of disposable packaging for object and jewellery design.  The necklace is composed of pairs of various pendants that differ in weight, shape and size. Both sides of the necklace can be shifted and scaled in search for a balance – or imbalance – when worn. Carrying these weights as a collection of charms around the neck and shoulders does not go unnoticed for the wearer or the viewer.

Anna Norrgrann - Necklaces made of aluminium and nylon threadAnna Norrgrann – Necklaces made of aluminium and nylon thread
« I’m attracted to the qualities in different kinds of metal that make them perform in various ways, depending on the treatment. I see my work as collaboration between these qualities in the material and my own technical skills. m attracted to the qualities in different kinds of metal that make them perform in various ways, depending on the treatment.

« My jewellery is in constant collision between the organic and the rigidly constructed. In this project I wanted to simplify the construction of my jewellery to the greatest extent, and I have been working with old painting techniques to produce light in the darkness. Having previously worked with repetitions of one single form, I have now tried to shape one sprawling piece into a cohesive unit. » – Hanna Liljenberg

Supported both by a scientific and empirical observation of the cells and patterns of the living, Arnaud Sprimont investigates an invisible and frightening universe.  The exploration of the strong ties that exist between human being and nature is the heart of his approach and of his will to define himself, in nature and in harmony with it, as microbiotes living in symbiosis with their host.

 "Recycled Powder" collection - T Squared Tami Eshed - Israel. Selected for AUTOR 2016 ★Tami Eshed – Israel – « Recycled Powder » collection – T Squared – Selected for AUTOR 2016  
« Keep thinking green! » says Tami. « In this specific collection, I have decided to create a limited edition of pieces, which are manufactured in an eco-friendly manner. Instead of dying the pins, necklaces and rings with a standard Epoxy paint, I have decided to use the powder of leftover metal paint as the main coloring ingredient. »

"Sponge" by Konstantinos Georgopoulos Giftforever from Greece  « Sponge » by Konstantinos Georgopoulos Giftforever from Greece ★
“I’ve always been fascinated by objects such as wood, rocks or bone carved from the power of nature, or “bizarre” forms and combinations such as a root stuck between two rocks or a garnet crystal as a rough diamond inclusion. The greek sponges that can be found mainly in the sea of Kalymnos Island was -this time – my inspiration.”

Pressure by Panayiotis Panayi from Cyprus★ Pressure by Panayiotis Panayi from Cyprus★
Since the dawn of man, we humans had an intrinsic desire to further evolve our species.This intellectual tendency that leads us to our goals, leaves us oblivious to any negative consequences to our surroundings or ourselves. We will pursue our goals at any cost.
These days we have managed to lose control, we have imprisoned our spirit and we are fed on a daily basis a banquet of stress and pressure to further accommodate our own ambitions or the ones of our peers.
The collection is inspired by that burden; by the pressure that seems to distinguish modern man. This collection is made out of titanium (lightweight elastic, hard metal). As it wraps around the finger it applies a small amount of pressure.

Isabelle Busnel  necklaceIsabelle Busnel  necklace  My work explores all the stereotypes of classical jewellery. After a first collection playing with the kitsch imagery of cheap and popular jewellery (owls, skulls, cameos, tigers…), my second body of work focuses on the aesthetics of pearls. In my last new collection I investigate the attraction of stones. I am still using silicone rubber as material but this time I am adding translucent coloured silicone to mimic stones. White is still predominant in my necklaces and magnetic brooches but I give them a new twist with a large range of colours.
For AUTOR 2016, I am planning to show a mix of the “pearls” and the “stones” collections.

« In the physical, concrete level, we are the result of our actions , reactions and interactions. Their amount structurally determine the whole assembly which we are part of. Its isuues are also ours issues. Yet by awarness and appropriate behaviour the equilibrium can be restored.The collection is a honest and transparent statement, revealing the intentions of personal involvement and its purpose. The materials used (recycled plastic, Sterling Silver, patina, glass beads, nylon thread) and the colors chosen reveal the implicit message: « Let’s do something that matters. »

 Tule design by Helmi Lindblom, Finland [Photography by Ninni Vidgren] Tule design by Helmi Lindblom, Finland [Photography by Ninni Vidgren]
« I would like to tell the stressful world, but I can not. Nor do I want to underline the seriousness of
our time and human insecurity. Instead, I want to bring people something to hold on to.
With my current work I try to get the viewer to forget the seriousness so often connected to art. I wish that my pieces will encourage approaching touching and wearing them. I hope that the wearers lose themselves in the repeated movement of their fingers on jewelry’s surface and into the varying fingertip feelings. »

 “Meat Animals In The Grass”, 2016 by Ana Barbu UZURA from Romania  “Meat Animals In The Grass”, 2016 by Ana Barbu /UZURA from Romania ★
« This collection’s theme is the city and its aberrations, the way it makes us live, in small safe antiseptic spaces, the way it makes us eat, packed food of unknown origin, the way it makes us move, traveling in cars and running on treadmills, etc. My choice of expressing this frankensteined urban life is by using the idea of diorama, of architectural small scale models, but not to represent buildings and townscapes, but a traditional, natural, almost idyllic landscape populated with animals that now we usually grow for food in industrialized farms. »

 [Re]Born by Rada Ureche from Romania [Re]Born by Rada Ureche from Romania
« [Re]Born is a collection that emphasises on the recycling of materials, giving us an impulse to reuse or to give another destination to the objects we think we no longer need. It represents an unspoken dialougue between the perfect shapes, texture or finish and the small marks of crafting that remain visible as a humble recognition of our human flaws and imperfections.
By using the keum-boo technique we wanted to highlight the beauty and different shapes of melted silver, showing that we can prevent the waste of potentially usefull materials. As gold fusions with silver, so does every action or innaction we have upon the world we live in.
Materials used: recycled sterling silver, 23.5k gold sheet. »

 "Thinking Building" collection by Etay Malka from Israel « Thinking Building » collection by Etay Malka from Israel
« This project deals with the architecture in Tel Aviv. The differences in the city today are mainly reflected by the character of the buildings and their height. Bauhaus buildings with 2 floors and rounded balconies stand alongside the skyscrapers, offices and cranes. »

  THE UNPREDİCTABLE FORM/FOAM collection by Hakan Aktug from TurkeyTHE UNPREDİCTABLE FORM/FOAM collection by Hakan Aktug from Turkey

By Corrina Goutos - representing Germany, from AmericaBy Corrina Goutos – representing Germany, from America
Based on my exploration of the archetype of The Souvenir, my current collection looks at the things we take, imbue with a memory, place or moment, and the objects and traces that we leave behind in the process. The ephemeral dialogue between man’s rituals and nature’s forces; between environment and inhabitants.
In a culture of convenience, consumption and transience, I seek out the lost and found objects and site installations that have the memory of a person. They are the unfinished stories of affection, and neglect, visible in objects we interact with.

 Christine Jalio”Loss” by Christine Jalio from Finland –
“The “Loss”- collection is a continuum of my earlier “Past, Loss, Future”- collection which tells a story of aging, personal loss and life before and after big turning points in life. In the new ”Loss”- collection I have been concentrating on personal loss, sadness, and loneliness; on what happens after you loose someone you love. I have gone even deeper into the emotional turmoil of an individual person and tried hard to capture these feelings in my work. The pieces have a sense of comfort and safety to them and look very heavy, but are actually really light. Like a person who carries great sadness within, I wanted my pieces to be very quiet and scream very loud at the same time.”

During SCHMUCK 2016 : TALENTE 2016 awards – 27 Fevr. 2016

  TALENTE 2016
Award Ceremony, 27.02.2016 16:30
Fairground Messe Munich, Hall B1

Talente 2016 presents the work of 102 artists, designers and craftsmen from 26 countries in 12 different areas of production. This year Talente has also participants from Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Lithuania, South Africa and Argentinia. Talente will show innovative and very different works in glass, ceramics and jewellery as well as a very large selection of textiles. The works are inspired by considerations of material and re-use, the specific haptic and visual qualities of materials and the effect of their combination. The artists experiment with various surfaces and use materials in unusual ways. It is fascinating to observe how surfaces contrast and harmonize how perfection and decay are evoked.
As in the last years, an unusual high number of applications arrived for “Talente” from the field of jewellery. The young artists show a special interest in the techniques and ideas of the collage and the use of unusual materials like basketry, ceramic, plaster, textile and different stones. The works concentrate more on the surfaces themselves less on decorative embellishments. In many instances they emphasise the archaic and rough side. A pattern is also created by the materials themselves.

Maîtres et élèves créateurs de bijoux contemporains.  3ème Etat des lieux de la transmission des savoirs maîtres-élèves du «bijou d’auteur» dans nos écoles supérieures et académies d’art. Art jeune et pluridisciplinaire, à la croisée des beaux-arts et du design, le bijou d’art contemporain, forme d’expression artistique à part entière, fait incontestablement partie de notre patrimoine. En s’interrogeant sur le poids des savoirs et la part de ceux-ci dans la création contemporaine et en soulignant le caractère critique et autoréflexif de cette discipline artistique, nous vous proposons de découvrir les passeurs de ces savoirs issus des Académies des Beaux- Arts de Châtelet (Charleroi), KASK (Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerpen) RHoK (Academie Beeldende Kunsten, Brussel) et SASK (Stedelijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten, Sint-Niklaas).

  »Oscure Sacrifices II«  , Jorge Manilla  

Next Thursday is the opening of my exhibition Oscure Sacrifices II at the International Schmuck week in München, Germany
This year my guest artist are Dimitar Stankov and Jonathan Hens.
I see you there!!!

Oscure Sacrifice – Jorge Manilla,
Schmuck Week
The first part of this Exhibition has happen in Gothenburg City last January 2015.
Presenting the first part of a visual conversation I confronted works and meanings.
The emotional element which gives an obsessive value to communal existence is death.”  George Bataille
In 2010, I  began to work on my series “Only Memories”and “Dust of a Broken Love”, which were inspired by the deepest feelings and fears that we usually avoid, I tried to show with this work the moral and corporeal anatomy of the human soul. Since then, I’ve developed series in which I explore the darker side of human beings. With series like “Pain”, “Melancholia”, “Contemporary Savagery” and “Morbid Moves” .
I’ve researched  and reflected on  topics such as death, life, love, feelings, emotions in both the
psychological and physical aspects of people.
With “Oscure Sacrifice” ,  I seek  to confront  elements of  my previous work with a more positive human outlook. Preserving the mystery and abstractness of the dark side, I want to create new  forms that  originate  a feeling of hope. Shapes and material serve as translators of my thoughts, in my creative process through materials I strive to penetrate in the dark side of the society we live in and then represent an idealized – less  negative image of a society that in the last years has produced mass murders, not only physical but emotional and intellectual. My latest pieces are images born out of the dream of darkness, of hope or solely my instinct.
Jorge Manilla
Sacrifices II
Oscure Sacrifices II (statement by Jorge Manilla)
During the last four years I ve been researching and reflecting on topics as death life love feelings and emotion,in both the psychological and physical aspects of human beings.
Comunicating emotions is not easy people don’t Like to discuss them ans very often my works represents just that.
With my pieces I like to relate to the hidden the secretive, the unknown, and with this to create a mysterious air. My work keep things bottled up, hidden from the world.
I want to make pieces that make people think.
I dont like or want to make easy beautiful work, I want people to feel something when they re in in front of my work. Whether they like or deslike. It doesn’t matter as long as I , leave them thinking And feeling . I would like people to never forget that we are still alive And there is always something positive behind every Black cloud.

« Oscure Sacrifices I -
By creating  jewellery Jorge Manilla investigates his environment - religion, emotions, relationships and the meaning of life. 
Manilla has a professional background as a boxer and butcher. He observes violence and cruelty pragmatic and objective and his jewellery often express a brutal rawness – The last years the artist  re discovered his love for the black color, wich has been a constant in his life.
And since 2010 Manilla translate the rawness of life in materials…
For Jorge black relates to the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, and as a result it creates an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world.
With his dark forms and shapes he creates a barrier between the meanings of the objects and the outside world.
Black implies self-control and discipline, independence and a strong will, and giving an impression of authority and power.
Manilla think that black is the end, but the end always implies a new beginning. 
When the light appears, black becomes white, the color of new beginnings
The work of Jorge are beautiful punches that hit the viewer in solar plexus. » By Karin Roy Anderson
