Sooyeon Kim :      My work is selected for 'Ornament and Illusion - Spectrum of Contemporary Jewelry' show which will be held at National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art , Korea.    44 korean jewelers' over 200 jewelry will be presented.    The show opens on 12th of June until 28th of Feb, 2014.

Ornament and Illusion – Spectrum of contemporary jewelry is the first jewelry exhibition organized by the MMCA. As the first in-depth exploration of contemporary jewelry at one of Korea’s most representative art institutions, this is truly a landmark exhibition, featuring 44 contemporary jewelry artists who are active both domestically and internationally, and a total of about 270 works that estmplify the aforementioned major features of contemporary jewelry.
The exhibited works are categorized into four sections according to their main characteristics: « Materials: Endless Panorama« ; « Aesthetics: Beauty through Abstract Forms« ; « Narrative: Scenes of Expression and Allusion« ; « Process: Exploring Texhniques. » Each category includes works by eleven artists.
The « Materials » section presents works that demonstrate the expansion of materials at play in contemporary jewelry, revealing how today’s artists employ new and various materials to undermine conventions and produce wondrous visual configurations. This section also explores how the individual materials can be effectively combined to create the most exquisite compositions within the limited realm of jewelry.
The « Aesthetics » section includes works that attempt to embody pure or compressed aesthetics through abstract forms. The jewelry in this section is primarily made of metal, yet it displays an amazing thematic and formal diversity. Through their refined, dense forms, these stunning works create a subtle but enduring emmotional resonance with viewers.
The « Narrative » section offers works that highlight some experimental and conceptual approaches to contemporary jewelry, including pieces that examine jewelry’s limitations and identity, the artist’s own psycholigy, and a variety of social interests.
Finally, the « Process » section features works that epitomize the depth and mastery of porduction techniques, including both eastern and western traditional methods, such as the inlaid wire technique the « marriage of metal » technique, and new industrial techniques like RP and Todigital printing.

Today’s jewelry artists are using their craft to freely express their ideas and make important artistic statements. But even as contemporary jewelry has developed into an independent and autonomous field, it remains somewhat subsidiary in certain respects. Although jewelry has freed itself from some of the structural restrictions associated with other daily necessities and household items, it still has one remaining limitation: the human body. Jewelry must always function in harmony with the person wearing it. It is, by nature, an accessory, which implies a level of restriction and subordination. In addition, jewelry can never completely free itself from the techniques needed to process the materials. But this duality is the source of the true beauty of contemporary jewelry. Its functional and technical dependence may be seen as an obstacle or limitation, but it also provides endless opportunities for exploration and experimentation with the very identity of jewelry.
The radical movements within contemporary jewelry have recognized these dependencies as shackles, and have recognized these dependencies as shackles, and have naturally tried to escape from them. Inevitably, of course, such efforts are doomed to failure, because any attempt to cast off these shackles results in objects that have been transformed into something other than jewelry.
Contemporary jewelry, which seems primarily concerned with pursuing new forms and methods, still represents the continuation of a very long human tradition; yet remarkably, despite this longevity, this field, which produces such fascinating and dazzling objects, is still not very well known or understood. This exhibition aims to capture viewers’ imagination and ignite a fresh appreciation for these brilliand works of art, which materialize the inner mind of the artist while embodying the height of expert craftsmanship.

ATOUT COEUR

Ce n’est pas le « simple » coeur qui est donné à voir -à porter- ici, le « classique », à la Peynet, celui des « amoureux », non, c’est le coeur organe anatomique, masse musculaire, limite sanguinolant, et du fait de ce sang il évoque physique, mal, souffrance, et rejoint la représentation « chrétienne » du coeur christique, le « sanctus ignis sanctus viscus » ….. On part de la viscère pour arriver au coeur sacré de Jésus …… les voies du seigneur sont impénétrables…………………

This is a huge heart which actually is a huge knot. That is the key feeling in this work; a huge,  screaming (maybe bleeding..), knot- heart. The knot is such a paradoxical form; it consists of “one”, but through an action (of knotting) it becomes “two”, with a heart between them. At the same time it is the ground of endless processes which in themselves are not complex, but all together they create an unsolvable, knotted reality. An un-followable mass of actions and reactions. There is no wrong or right, just a complex, painful situation.” (Ela Bauer)

« More recently, I have begun to explore the heart and the many implicit meanings it has … Removed from the body, the heart is at the same time both container and content. It extends beyond the symbolic as it becomes both metaphor and metonym. In using the heart in my work as a vessel form, my intent is to continue the close association between body and object functions, thus developing a syntax that signifies interchange, transformation and desire. A recent piece « Mystic Interchange » addresses these concerns. These notions of union through interchange, transformation and desire are brought forward in the work through the tension found in the visual imagery, which is intended to suggest the oscillation between physical and spiritual planes. Not unlike the Eastern concept of bindu, an extensionless point from which there is an endless rhythmic expansion and contraction of the energy vibrations that form the cosmos, I also sought to express that moment of in-between, that moment where one is straddling the plane of transformation, where one is acutely aware of both sides and where at this point one is simultaneously both and neither. »(Lin Stanionis)

Norsola Johnson  » the theme fits perfectly with a new series I’ve been working on… It’s a locket containing a flaming sacred heart… the latin words  » sanctus ignis sanctus viscus » (sacred fire sacred heart) are stamped on the sides of the locket… »

découverte sur le blog « Mar de color Rosa« , difficile de trouver quelque information sur cette créatrice, d’autant que son blog est en Coréen (allez voir (en anglais sur la gauche) les sections « works », « catalogue » et « present » pour voir ses oeuvres) ! donc à part les photos de ses créations, rien …. un peu frustrant ! mais …. le coeur y est ! ;-)

C’est curieux … je verrais plus cette « surabondance » de coeur « Chrétien »/sanguinolant plutôt du côté de l’Amérique du Sud, ou de l’Espagne ….  mais en Corée ?????
