Résultat de l’appel à candidature aux créateurs des pays de l’Union européenne. Toutes disciplines des arts appliqués, ainsi que design, photo,…
Resultat of the call to the artists from the European Union countries. Each discipline within the applied arts, as well as design, photography,…

Vanity is a theme as old as the existence of Art itself. “Remember you will die” whispered the slave to the Roman General during the triumphs. Nowadays, this superstition which became obsession cannot be hidden. Her rebirth in the Contemporary Art is such that Vanity has become true fashion or a lifestyle. “Vanitas vanitatum, omnia vanitas”. How better than the current age of technology and overconsumption to update this adage? In this month of the dead, Omnia Vanitas proposes a stop in space-time, a time for reflexion to ask themselves the right questions once again.
On this occasion, the WCC-BF and the Koma Gallery exposed 62 artists from Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, France, Italy, Portugal, Poland, Finland and Estonia. In their own way, each of them present their personal interpretation of death and Vanity. As in the exhibition of the European Price for Applied Arts, the artworks will be seen with all the contemplation and the reflexion it requires. In its own way, Omnia will propose to visitors a more intimate perspective on our relationship with life and death.

Artist talk September 20, 3pm

BHLO a duet - Jorge Manilla  & Ruta Reifen

An art jewelry exhibition featuring Ruta Reifen’s Floralforever (pardesim) and Jorge Manillla’s Impossible to imagine collections. Two unique botanical explorations, abstract and figurative. Both stories of a human’s relationship to their environment, one philosophical and the other a particular narrative. Presented together, as a duet, a dance, these bodies of work employ floral forms as cultural symbols, personal and universal.

BHLO a duet - Jorge Manilla  & Ruta Reifen

Jorge Manilla, the son of a family of Mexican goldsmiths and engravers, studied visual arts at the Academy of San Carlos, in Mexico. He received a highly technical jewellery training at the Academy of Craft and Design from the Mexican Institute of Fine Arts. But it was until he moved to Belgium, years later, where he enrolled at the Karel de Grote Academy in Antwerp, that he was forced to forget about the traditional notion he had to jewellery, to let his technical skills aside and to research about the cultural meaning of jewellery, its conceptual possibilities and to experiment with materials and techniques .
Manilla’s vast production, is both utterly beautiful and profoundly upsetting. Attraction, repulsion, uneasiness: his work confronts him with his religious upbringing and the viewer with a powerful and intimate perception of the syncretic religion of the modern Mexico. Allusions to religious images and iconography that show the often tortuous and painful relations that Mexicans have with their faith. Wood, bones, textile, branded leather and silver are amalgamated and transformed into almost recognizable shapes: a probable anatomical part, a series of tiny bundles that could be small babies, an unknown religious utensil. Manilla is not shy to experiment with all kinds of materials and processes, never leaving aside his extraordinary metalsmithing skills. Each one of his pieces is carefully crafted in a variety of processes that are able to convey his rotund ideas.

Ruta Reifen, born in Jerusalem, Israel, 1984. Received an honors B.Design in Jewelry Design from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design (Israel) 2009. In 2011 she received and honors MFA from the Jewelry + Metals department at the Rhode Island School of Design (United States).
Ruta keeps her own studio practice in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Her fine jewelry sells in selected boutique stores across the US and Europe. Ruta’s practice is based on an expertise of artisanal goldsmith techniques, design skills, and an academic background in jewelry, art history, and contemporary art.
Each piece is individually handmade by the artist in Brooklyn, using responsibly sourced metals and stones, ensuring a commitment to the highest quality craftsmanship as well as minimal environmental impact.
“As a maker, jewelry presents endless opportunities to form intimacy through a wearable piece of art. These jewels are symbols of the splendor and romance I find in flowers, also the most immediate material for self-adornment since ancient times. Floral forms relate directly to the wearer, the exchange between us is personal with every piece I create. ”

« IMPOSSIBLE TO IMAGINE »
I always speak the truth. Not the whole truth, because there’s no way, to say it all. Saying it all is literally impossible: words fail. Yet it’s through this very impossibility that the truth holds in to the real.”

EXPO ‘Jorge Manilla – Beyond the Limits II’ – Popeye loves olive, Athens (GR) – 17 Avril-9 mai 2015

Jorge Manilla – Beyond the Limits II

this week at Popeye loves olive, Space for Contemporary Jewellery in Athens Greece

Inauguration 17 avril  à 19:00h
 "Beyond the Limits II" (Jorge Manilla) this week at Popeye Loves Olive, Space for Contemporary Jewellery in Athens Greece
 “The after Joya Effect” is an Exhibition that took place at Popeye loves Olive – Art Space. It aimed to the interaction and the transformation of individuality to collaboration, diversity to unification and exchange to sharing. It was inspired by the jewelry exchange in Project01 that held in Joya-Barcelona Art Jewelry Fair, 2013.
From 23/04/2014 – 30/06/2014, the project evolved in five solo exhibitions of Greek artists and one group exhibition of thirty five International artists. During the the exhibition the public voted for their favorite artist. The winner of “The after Joya Effect” First Edition is Jorge Manilla and his solo exhibition opens on the 17th of April 2015 at 19.00′.
Jorge Manilla
In the past few years, Jorge Manilla has created a personal style of work that is the result of his Mexican background and conceptual education in Europe. In his work, Manilla often manipulates a wide array of materials to make sense of the intricate and painful relationship people have with religion and the concept of the body.
Currently, he is simultaneously working as a tutor at Alchimia International School of Contemporary Jewellery in Florence Italy, as a teacher and a PhD researcher at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp and of course as a professional Artist.
With this Exhibition, Manilla seeks to find the morphology of the ideas and explore how far he can go with the characteristics of the material during his creative process. How do thoughts arrive, what constructs them, what is their inspiration and how do they transform into material.
Jorge Manilla is interested in creating a confrontation between aesthetics and emotions, to investigate the body: visible, psychological or physical and to create very interesting jewelry as they are objects conceived from the human body.
Beyond the limits II, will show a selection of pieces made in the last 5 years by the visual artist and jeweler, created from the confrontation between the aesthetic and the emotional, from which the author claims to investigate and discover that dark side of humanity, which, in most of the cases, leads to destruction and to the brutality, either psychological or physical.

  »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.

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

« “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
