In an age of globalization when artists travel to numerous places, how relevant is their nationality in an artistic context?
What do we mean when we talk about Portuguese, Mexican and Brazilian contemporary art in the 21st century’?
What do we mean when we say that jewelry can identify a people and a culture?
What do we mean when we talk about Portuguese, Mexican and Brazilian contemporary art in the 21st century’?
Why do we mean when we say that a people and a culture can be identified by their jewelry?
Could it nowadays only identify an epoch?
// question the cultural identity and heritage of participating artists
// display works without showing the artists’ names and nationalities
// look at the way jewelry manufacturing undergoes changes and is affected by other materials and techniques
// reflect on concepts of identity and the way our past surfaces in the present
// foster a debate on the response of the public and reveal the artists’ names and nationalities when the event closes
Draw up the themes that PIN elected to embody the Twenty-Three. Contemporary Jewelry in the Ibero-America exhibition to promote a reflection on contemporary manufacturing that will make us re-think the cultural heritage of each artist and the relations this establishes.
Each of the 23 areas that make up the exhibition plan where the pieces are displayed represents a member nation of UCCI – Union of Ibero-American Capital Cities.
The artists’ names and nationalities are not displayed in order that their cultural identity and heritage can be probed and questioned.
The public is invited to seek the origin of each group of artists and interact in loco by trying to discover their nationality – and leave a flag sticker at each area.

Snapshot - REVERSO

Snapshot – photography project with Diana Laires:
Words cannot say much about jewellery. You have to see, feel and wear the pieces on the body. You have to live with them. Only then, the pleasure of the thought and made, of the formulated and fabulated with ideas, desires and matters, can irradiate fascination.
What should remain is the joy and the desire to understand and wear these pieces of jewellery as symbols of your own personality. /Jens-Rudiger Lorenzen (adapted) in Contemporary Jewelry, Stuttgart, 1989

“Thin is the line” gains its full expression in the variation within the works it joins.
Drawings, made visible by a continuous line cut, serve as motifs that spread, as if each of those motifs could serve others that can only be envisaged within the conjunct.
Plinths may be sculptures, sculptures may be jewels, jewels may be tools, tools may be drawings, drawings may be thoughts, thoughts may be reflexes of the relation between gesture and perception.

Leonor Hipólito – object/pendant : Beyond Emotions 2012 – Goldplated brass

« Beyond Emotions projects moments of my life that lingered in my mind for a long time blurring the boundaries between emotions of the past and the present. In the attempt to visualize them, by the exercise of producing works, I am not illustrating but rather evoking an emotional content. Wearable, they hold onto the body playing their role as metaphors for both placement and displacement.
Beyond Emotions is also a book in which my works and my writings interweave with one another to form a single picture yet variable in perspective.
The book was realized in collaboration with Arne Kaiser who did the photography and graphic design. » Leonor Hipólito 2012

EXPO ‘Mirror Mirror’ – Espace Solidor, Cagnes-sur-mer (FR) – 23 Juin-23 Sept. 2012

Du 23 juin au 23 septembre : « Mirror Mirror »
Une exposition en hommage à Suzy Solidor, sur une proposition de Jo Bloxham et Benjamin Lignel.

Cagnes-sur-mer« Vingt-neuf artistes, de quatorze pays différents, ont répondu à notre invitation et se sont penchés sur la vie de Suzy Solidor. Nous croyons que la diversité de leurs réponses constitue un tribut à un parcours de vie hors normes, et qu’il est propice de la lire en dialogue avec les tableaux présentés du Château. Miroir déformé de sa collection de portraits, elle la prolonge (ces bijoux et objets sont souvent eux-mêmes des portraits), mais “l’exagère” aussi. En effet, les pratiques représentées ici ne sont pas mimétiques : il n’est pas question de “ressembler” à un sujet, mais d’équiper ses fictions identitaires : “je suis pirate / chanteuse / mangeuse d’hommes et de femmes / malouine échappée à Paris… pour y chanter des histoires de bord de mer”.
Le bijou a ceci de singulier qu’il identifie son propriétaire. Il le désigne, mais l’invente aussi : quel meilleur medium que le bijou pour alimenter la mythomanie légère de Solidor ?
Si elles dialoguent avec Suzy, les oeuvres montrées ici le font aussi avec la pratique du bijou contemporain elle-même. Ce dernier point a guidé nos choix photographiques dans la composition de ce catalogue. Au lieu de reproduire les objets détourés sur fond blanc, ce qui aurait encouragé une lecture sculpturale des pièces, nous avons préféré rendre à chaque objet sa taille relative, et photographier chaque double-page en une seule prise de vue en y laissant les indices d’un déballage récent. Notre propos était de rendre manifeste l’envers du décor des expositions de bijou contemporain : sa dimension logistique, et la réalité de ces colis qui voyagent d’un bout du monde à l’autre pour arriver à Cagnes-sur-Mer (les “boites” s’envoleront à nouveau après cette première exposition vers la galerie Velvet da Vinci de San Francisco). Cette quête de réalisme aura été l’occasion d’établir des correspondances imprévues entre les pièces en vis-à-vis : ultimes miroirs dont nous espérons qu’ils enrichiront la lecture de chaque oeuvre.
L’invitation faite à chaque artiste de créer un bijou “pour quelqu’un” reproduit des schémas de commande très conventionnels dans les arts appliqués : on verra cependant dans les pages suivantes à quel point leurs réponses ne le sont pas.«
