EXPO ‘Joungmee Do: Longevity’ – e.g.etal, Melbourne (AU) – 14 Juin-2 Juill. 2011

In Korean folklore, there are ten symbols of longevity: the sun, mountains, clouds, rock, water, cranes, tortoises, deer, pine tree and immortals’ fungus (pullocho). These symbols are representative of man’s deep desire for happiness in the present world and appear in folk paintings as decorative motifs.

Longevity is Melbourne-based Joungmee Do’s response to her exploration of Korean folklore. Her reworking of these auspicious symbols comes in the form of necklaces and brooches. Joungmee’s intricately detailed pieces employ traditional Korean metal inlay techniques (or iybsa) as well as complex etching and metal colouring. The result is work that links contemporary expression with the traditional Korean spiritual and symbolic world.

EXPO ‘‘Winter’ Neckpieces’ – studio2017, Waterloo, Sydey (AU) – 3 Mai–4 Juin 2011

‘Winter’ Neckpieces
For the 4th year running we will be hosting our successful annual ‘Winter’ group exhibition exploring the breadth, depth, and width of a particular area of jewellery or the body. Our previous winter exhibitions have showcased contemporary brooches. This year the focus will be the neck.

This year we invite a selected number of Australian and International artists to make contemporary versions of this ancient form of self expression. Expect to see works ranging from eye catching, oversized statement pieces, through to delicate pared back jewels. The only limitation will be that the finished work can be worn around the neck.
