 SCHMUCK 2014 – Munich – 12-18 Mars 2014

Maurer Zilioli-Contemporary Arts zu Gast bei reillplast,

« Karen Pontoppidan – Canvas Context Cash »

Inauguration : 12. März, 18 Uhr
Aperitivo: 14. März, 17 Uhr

« In the trilogy CANVAS CONTEXT CASH, presented for the first time in Munich as a cohesive work group, Karen Pontoppidan takes her stand in the non-ending debate on the relation between the free and applied arts, and particularly between painting/drawing on the one hand and the identity of the contemporary goldsmith on the other. Born in Kerteminde/Denmark, she has dealt with this topic time and again under a variety of headings in the course of her complex biographical trajectory and has in fact devoted her energies essentially to this problem to have her work resonate with it in a series of steps. Against the backdrop of her previous works her recent objects can be seen as a matured conclusion creating interstices of humour and irony and presenting a jewellery that renders the viewer thoughtful and yet never ceases to “clothe” the wearer.

CANVAS consists of geometrical bodies of wood wrapped in canvas and beset with jewellery quotes
like embossed ornaments, appliquéd medaillons or floral décor. Art and craft unite in a cheerful conspiracy.
CONTEXT fathoms out further possibilities of this terrain and reaches out for bolder forms –
in the way of a response to a rising trend that intends to eliminate all individual traits involved in the artistic process or as intrinsic elements of an artistic strategy. Pontoppidan commissions befriended painters to colour the interior of miniature boxes of industrial canvas, leaving the job of binding to other colleagues. The whole set consists of 99 objects and functions as a witty and enigmatic comment on a common practice in contemporary art.
CASH constitutes something like a concluding remark on the economic system associated with aesthetic behaviour. Art reveals itself more and more as a simple definition, dependant on things like context, success and the ambience, in which the individual objects are anchored.
 
Thus we find ourselves treading on an elastic ground generating value shifts and hybrid creatures.
Contemporary jewellery has become part of such a trend, involving positions that associate themselves with the general discourse of art and respond to it by means of an aesthetic language that is immanent to its material. Karen Pontoppidan’s work is one such voice. A jewellery artist with an absolutely avantgarde breeding, she worked from 2000 till 2006 as an assistant to Otto Künzli and since 2006 as a professor at the Konstfack in Stockholm. Although she mercilessly eradicates all traditionalistic temptations besetting jewellery art, although her work displays a strong proclivity towards things like absurdity, defamiliarization and play, she values her background in jewellery and the goldsmith’s craft, even though this is not always immediately visible.
Were that not the case, her “nasty” approach could never be quite so effective.
For the process involved in her work jewellery is subjected to a mysterious transformation, with
conceptual action and critical reflection on the one hand and aesthetic and ornamental recapitulation
on the other melting into a compact and handy form. »

(Brooches Context, 2013 – Canvas, paint, silver – 4,5 x 3,5 x 3 cm up to 6 x 3,5 x 3,3 cm)
Karen Pontoppidan’s new series „CONTEXT“ includes 100 brooches, made in the same manner but not identically. The series based on the idea of outsourcing the craftwork. KP developed the concept, and asked different people from different professions to realize parts of the CONTEXT-brooches. At the end of this process KP signed each of the brooches. Although the production is standardised every single brooch is unique, due to the differences in color, shape and size, and the price is reasonable thanks to the manner of production.

EXPO ‘CONTEXT’ – Rob Koudijs gallery, Amsterdam (NL) – 20 Avril-1er Mai 2013

KAREN PONTOPPIDAN : « CONTEXT » -  Rob Koudijs gallery -   From 20 April to 1 May 2013

The difference in status between the fine and the applied arts is a phenomenon that has kept Karen Pontoppidan busy for some time now.

KAREN PONTOPPIDAN: "CONTEXT" - Amsterdam - Rob Koudijs gallery -   From 20 April to 1 May 2013  http://www.galerierobkoudijs.nl - - The difference in status between the fine and the applied arts is a phenomenon that has kept Karen Pontoppidan busy for some time now.

The difference in status between the fine and the applied arts is a phenomenon that has kept Karen Pontoppidan busy for some time now. Not only from her own professional perspective, but also from her position as professor at the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm where she educates the next generation of jewellery designers.
Her previous collection ‘Canvas’ referred literally to paintings, but this time she wanted to be more precise in comparing the two positions. In stead of just focusing on the end product, she this time incorporated also the making of the work into the concept. Where as the jeweller makes his or her work mostly in the solitude of the studio, fine art- and industrial design artists rely more and more on execution by others. It led Pontoppidan to a simple conclusion. She enlisted specialized assistance to produce her new work: painters coloured canvas, students made metal backings and goldsmiths the staples needed for fixating a three-dimensional form. Also the selling price was part of the idea: producing larger qualities leads to lower prices.
Based on these simple points of departure, Karen Pontoppidan realized a stunning group of a 100 different brooches, which Galerie Rob Koudijs has the privilege of showing in its entirety for the first time. Naturally Pontoppidan remains the creative author, but the way the work came about, gives an interesting comment on the usual workshop approach. Fortunately it also resulted in seductively coloured, very wearable pieces of jewellery, without, for the time being, a fine-arts-price-tag.

SCHMUCK 2012 ‘Corpus’ – Galerie Spektrum, Munich (DE) – 16 mars-28 avril 2012

Ruudt Peters – Corpus

Image de prévisualisation YouTube

 SCHMUCK 2012 'Corpus' - Galerie Spektrum, Munich (DE) - 16 mars-28 avril 2012 dans Allemagne (DE) peters-lumbusRuudt PetersCorpus « Limbus »

« Between body and spirit.
Flat, amorphous shapes in subdued shades of dark-grey. Ruudt Peters’ new jewellery appears to be austere and abstract until the eye is drawn to the occasional sharp edges, or intentionally modelled surfaces. Peters is always on a quest for spirituality in his work as his earlier work has demonstrated. One line of approach he did not consider in the past was Christianity. Was it too predictable a choice, or was it too close for comfort in the artist’s view?
From the abundance of motifs Peters chose what lies at the heart of Christianity: Jesus as the saviour of mankind. For a thousand years artists have searched for an apt representation of the crucifixion: from the simplicity of Romanesque depictions to an increasingly explicit image of a virtually naked man. The body of the Christ figure becomes increasingly pronounced: muscles starting to develop, the abdomen curving, the loincloth losing its innocence. The religious symbol takes on increasingly complex meanings.
It was a challenge for Ruudt Peters to add his own interpretation to this iconography. In a study in which the crucifix was initially sawn into bits and pieces and then joined together again instinctively, the artist was not only guided by religious connotations. Other aspects present themselves: the meeting of bodies, expressiveness of touch, intimacy. In the final product Peters stresses abstract, veiled shapes on the front and keeps the recognizable parts for the sides and back.
Western society is becoming increasingly secularized, and Ruudt Peters CORPUS jewellery hits the spectator like a bolt out of the blue. At its first presentation at the COLLECT art fair the reactions were unusually outspoken. Curiosity, amazement and appreciation competed for first place, often combined with wariness about the wearability of the pieces. For should you judge this work on the basis of the artistic stament made by the maker, or as a personal testimony? Is it about body or spirit? In his work the artist extends a hand to the spectators, ultimately it is their responsibility to provide an interpretation and decide on the value of a work of art. «   Ward Schrijver  (© Galerie Rob Koudijs)

Klassiker der Schmuck 2012
Jens Rüdiger Lorenzen, Deutschland

This year there will be a retrospective exhibition of the work of a « Modern Classic » designer. In 2012 the chosen designer is the German goldsmith Jens Rüdiger Lorenzen. Together with Francesco Pavan, Lorenzen was the first goldsmith to be awarded the Herbert Hofmann Prize, back in 1973. The award presentation ceremony, which this year is being held on Saturday, 17 March 2012, is always one of the highlights at SCHMUCK. Lorenzen, who was born in 1942 in Hagen, Westphalia, taught at the « Staatliche Zeichenakadamie » in Hanau from 1974 to 1985, while also acting as a visiting lecturer at the « Hochschule für Gestaltung » in Pforzheim, at which college he then, in 1985, took up an appointment as a professor. He continued to teach there in the jewellery design department until retiring in 2008.

EXPO ‘Karen Pontoppidan-Canvas’ – Gallery Rob Koudijs, Amsterdam (NL) – 9 Juill.-13 Aout 2011

Karen Pontoppidan at Rob Koudijs

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Y_hXYRl3KGc/ThypZLJnEQI/AAAAAAAAIyk/zXizHUwN29o/s1600/Captura+de+pantalla+2011-07-12+a+las+21.58.50.png

 

Karen Pontoppidan puts her heart and soul into her jewellery. This is true art, suitable for daily use. The medium has charmed Pontoppidanin into taking an age-old professional tradition and using it to search for contemporary idioms. Jewellery is an exceptional form of art because the owner can carry the piece on their person all day unlike, for instance, paintings. Nevertheless paintings continue to be the paramount form of art – walk into any museum and see for yourself.

Pontoppidan has engaged in battle with these codes: whereas once she drew the most superb portraits and animals on silver, now she has resolved to paint on canvas. The medium of the grand gesture, reduced on an intimate scale. On the canvas appear vestiges of stories, fragmented recollections. She does not only express these using paint, but also by adding elements of materials rich in associations like tin, lead and precious metal. As Pontoppidan phrases it, are we involved now with ’the art of making craft or the craft of making art’? There is of course no unequivocal answer, only the quality counts and that is guaranteed in her case. (Ward Schrijver – © Galerie Rob Koudijs)

EXPO ‘LINGAM’ – Galerie du WCC-BF, Mons (Belgique) – 8 mai-22 aout 2010

EXPO 'LINGAM' - Galerie du WCC-BF, Mons (Belgique) - 8 mai-22 aout 2010 dans Adam GRINOVICH (SE) n119554584726389_6290

« L’exposition LINGAM met en scène 121 interprétations d’un symbole ancestral de fertilité : le lingam.
Représentation symbolique du phallus et du dieu Shiva, le Lingam représente la force créatrice à la base de l’existence de tout l’univers. Dans les religions hindoue et bouddhique, c’est par le biais du lingam que l’on honore quotidiennement le dieu Shiva, la représentation phallique n’y est nullement mise en relation avec le sexe.
Dans la culture occidentale, le phallus évoque la sexualité et le plaisir. Alors qu’il fut un temps où le Christianisme et la culture judéo chrétienne mettaient également en avant la sexualité comme acte créateur positif. Depuis la séparation du corps et de l’esprit, cet aspect en a été banni et d’une référence sacrée, la sexualité est devenue un mal nécessaire.
Avec l’exposition LINGAM, son commissaire, le plasticien
Ruudt Peters (NL), désire rétablir cette signification initiale ainsi que sa dimension spirituelle.

Udi Lagallina - Lingam et son yoni. Wood, gold, pearls, textile.

Partant de sa fascination pour le lingam dont il a découvert l’existence il y a dix ans lors de voyages en Asie du Sud-est, il a eut envie de proposer à des artistes et designers contemporains de créer un objet symbolisant la fertilité, chaque créateur interprétant le sujet en se basant sur sa propre sensibilité et sa perception personnelle du thème.
121 créations ont ainsi vu le jour et sont présentées dans une scénographie où la signification originelle du lingam est soulignée par la présentation des objets contemporains en compagnie de leurs modèles originaux. »

EXPO ‘Teach us to outgrow our MADNESS’ -Platina Gallery, Stockholm (Suede) 27 Mai- 19 juin 2010

 

TEACH US TO OUTGROW OUR MADNESS  

KAREN PONTOPPIDAN – MIRO SAZDIC

EXPO 'Teach us to outgrow our MADNESS' -Platina Gallery, Stockholm (Suede) 27 Mai- 19 juin 2010 dans Exposition/Exhibition Miro

«  Karen Pontoppidan (DK) is currently a professor at Konstfack, the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm.
Miro Sazdic´ was born in former Yugoslavia, but moved to Sweden at an early age. She was educated at Konstfack in Stockholm, and has for some time now been teaching there. The title of the exhibit, « Teach us to outgrow our madness« , is borrowed from the Japanese author, Kenzaburo Oe. It refers to transition, the desire to evolve into a state of wisdom, but touches also on our need for others to help us learn.
Both of these artists are in the midst of life and they cast their gazes both forward and backward in time. They both look back on childhood, with its intuitive games and the non-learned attitude to the world that a child possesses.
The exhibit is divided into two rooms, illustrating childhood and the transition into the adult world.

Miro Sazdic – 1976
Karen Pontoppidan – « Family portraits’ (I et II)

The first room places us in childhood. The floor is covered in feathers that move fleetingly in accord with the movements of the visitors. Who hasn’t, as a child, followed a feather’s peaceful journey through the air and been amazed at its path?
And Karen Pontoppidan adds,
« If the room has been deserted after a pillow fight or if it reminds us of a dreamlike childhood wish, this we leave to the visitor to decide. »
Miro Sazdic´ is showing works that she, resembling a child at play, has tried to create intuitively, without the already learned, which can create more walls than open fields. She focuses on creativity as a meditative process, where time and space is forgotten in favor of the freedom of here and now. Like the young child, still uninfluenced by the age in which he/she lives and before entering into the teenager’s fear of being ostracized from the group. The jewelry she shows is not like anything we have seen before, either. The pieces she calls « 1976 » initially appear to be large, lumpy pieces of jewelry, but if we look closer we see an endless number of stitches and seams and realize at once that lots of time and strong emotions have been the prerequisites for these pieces. « Gate keepers » is a series of amulets. They represent hope and the potential of being rediscovered and are intended to be worn inside one’s clothing.
Karen Pontoppidan centers her work, « Family Portraits« , around the family we are born into – to a life we have not chosen, but been assigned to; people with different personalities who are securely linked together generation after generation. She illustrates family structures and portrays in her jewelry images of people who, close beside each other, mirror the family we know or do not know.
« The portraits used in this work are not of real, existing human beings. The drawings are representing different personalities. I have used them to illustrate different family structures », says Karen Pontoppidan.

Miro Sazdic - ‘phantom Limb’
Karen Pontoppidan – ‘Home’

When we enter the second room of the exhibit, we step into the adult world. This room differs from the first one and produces an entirely different atmosphere.
On the floor, we can read a text that will be erased during the exhibit, caused by the movements of the visitors through the room. Like a story and a memory that slowly diminishes as time passes. As adults, we now have the opportunity to reflect upon the choices we’ve made, simultaneously accepting the fact that others dictate our actions.
In the series, « Home« , Karen Pontoppidan looks forward in time, at the homes we humans create in order to thrive and feel secure on an everyday level, the ways we want to feel and situations in which we feel we belong. Home consists accordingly of not only a physical place, but even of the feeling of being at home that we can experience in the material world and our relationships with other people.
The material she uses is pewter from melted down heirlooms. By destructively melting down old objects, she illustrates the artistic process of passing something on, to create a new home for the objects that were inherited for generations.

Miro Sazdic´ shows here a series she calls « Phantom Limb« . She says that we are born as original, individual beings and, as teenagers and adults, we are molded to fit into a group. If that which is individual in each child falls outside of the framework for the group’s consensus, it is regarded as a negative trait and the child risks being expelled.
« What is regarded as being deviant for the group is for the individual unique. And what is generally accepted for the group becomes then deviant to the individual, for it then demands the elimination of something basic, individual and self-evident », Miro Sazdic´ adds.
The pieces she is showing are like bandages, wrapped several times around emptiness. It is as if she has fostered the phantom emotions that can haunt our minds, resembling the presence of ghosts in the otherwise so perfect world, which we grown-ups try in vain to create. » (Sofia Björkman Platina, May 2010)
