Parmi le collectif, on trouve Beth Alber, Lois Betteridge, Teresa Biagi, Wing-Ki Chan, Lise Downe, Lori Myers, Michele Perras, Pamela Ritchie, Anneke van Bommel, Sarah Troper, Tiana Roebuck et les dernières créations de Lily Yung. Pour l’occasion, quelques oeuvres récentes de l’artiste seront exposées.
Cette exposition se tiendra du 10 mars au 10 avril 2011. Noel Guyomarc’h donnera une conférence sur la carrière et l’oeuvre de Lily Yung à l’École de joaillerie de Montréal le 25 mars.
Beth Alber  «Bottles were found in the gutter on my way to work, the gym, my university, travels in B.C. and Ontario. Colleagues, friends and family collected them for me. These used bottles are everywhere. Why? The rings‘ from this collection are a nudge to think about bigger issues: sources of water and landfill /recycling.»
Lise Downe – Tree rings embody the process of growth and the passage of time
Anneke van BommelTree Rings are a series of hand built porcelain rings that explore the ecological issues of deforestation, abandonment, the passage of time and memory. Each ring, individually constructed, is a little “tree ghost” or a symbol of what once was
«Tree Rings, une collection de bagues en porcelaine et fabriquées à la main explore les problématiques écologiques de la déforestation, de l’abandon, du passage du temps et de la mémoire. Chaque bague, construite individuellement, est un petit ―fantôme d’arbre‖ ou le symbole de ce qu’il a été.»
Michele Perras – Collection Magneto - Magneto rings -
«Pour 2010 bagues, j’ai exploré les relations entre l’éphémère et l’attraction. Utilisant des aimants et de la poussière d’acier, ces bagues sont toujours un peu déséquilibrées et peu maniables et ont une existence propre. Conscients de leur environnement, elles modifient leur propre état et elles se transforment en état d’objets.»
«For 2010 Rings, I explored relationships between impermanence and attraction. Using rare earth magnets and steel dust, these rings are always a little off kilter, unwieldy and have a life of their own. Aware of their environment, they shift their own states and shift the states of other objects.»
Pamela Ritchie – «Pour 2010 bagues, j’ai revisité un thème exploré en 2003. A cette période, je prenais soin de ma mère et pensais à la maternité, la sienne et la mienne. Dans cet esprit, j’ai expérimenté avec des matériaux et des procédés utilisés par les enfants dans leurs travaux d’artisanat avec leurs mères.Bien que les méthodes actuelles ont différé, l’intention générale demeure la même. De nombreux résultats ressemblent aux bouquets au petit bonheur que nous offrions à nos mères quand nous étions jeunes.»
«For 2010 Rings, I revisited a theme explored in 2003. At the time I was caring for my mother and thinking about moth-erhood, hers and mine. With this in mind I experimented with materials and processes used by children making craft projects with their moms. While current methods have deviated, the overall intent is the same. Many results are like the haphazard bouquets we often make for our mothers when we are young.»
Tiana Roebuck – «For this exhibition I chose to work with basic materials that are reminiscent of craft projects from my childhood. From the basics, cotton, thread and paper, to the novelty of ―Shrinky Dink‖ plastic, these materials are processed and transformed through wrapping, knotting and stitching into small series of design explorations.»

EXPO ‘The Genius That Was Lily Yung’ – OCC, Canada – 6 Janv.-6 Fevr. 2011

Classé dans : Canada (CA),Exposition/Exhibition,Lily YUNG (Hong Kong),techniques textiles — bijoucontemporain @ 0:04

Curated by Beth Alber, Anne Barros and David Kaye, The Genius That Was Lily Yung constitutes a retrospective exhibition of Yung’s work from her early printmaking days to her explorations in jewellery using Rapid Prototyping (RP) systems.

Born in Hong Kong, Lily Yung received her Ph. D. in Immunology at the University of Alberta where she also studied printmaking. She began making jewellery in non-precious materials in 1986. Since 1994, she used textile techniques in wire and beads to transform them into exquisite jewellery. Her work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally, and has won numerous awards in both printmaking and jewellery. Yung was a founding member of the artists run fine craft gallery *new* in Toronto, as well as a co-editor of NewViews, a series of notes and reviews on Canadian craft practice.

FELT FELT FELT… jewelry – upcoming book ’500 Felt Objects’

« Trumpet sound ! Some time ago, the call for entries went out for 500 Felt Objects, a book slated for fall 2011 release*. After seeing Fashioning Felt, the terrific show she curated, I enlisted Susan Brown of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum to serve as the juror for this book. We’ve been reviewing the images to include in the book, and I’ve come across some really exciting jewelry made with this extraordinary material!
Now, please don’t think the decisions have been made for the book–we’ve still got a loooong way to go before selections are finalized. Just wanted to share the fascinating things some talented artists from around the globe are making. » (Larkcrafts)
