Collier exposé en juin 2007, à l’occasion de la 5e édition du Parcours Saint Germain ,intitulé « SWEET’ ART ou L’Art de la Gourmandise » (MERCI au blog « Carnets d’une Marraine« )

Agnès Propeck : “Le collier de la Reine”

« Entièrement composé de pâtes alimentaires percées et cousues, il est refait à l’identique d’après une gravure de l’époque. Le joyaux original, qui comportait 540 diamants, n’a jamais été porté ni commandé par Marie-Antoinette, et a mystérieusement disparu. Présenté chez Christian Lacroix dans une vitrine écrin, il ressurgit du passé, et malgré sa facture inspirée de l’enfance, le collier fait parfaitement illusion…. à s’y méprendre.  Galerie Alain Gutharc, Paris « 

 

Exposition « Al dente » organisée en 2005 par Claude Deloffre à l’(ex) galerie Food, Paris : la galeriste parisienne Claude Deloffre a eu l’idée taquine de proposer l’idée du fameux « collier de pâtes » aux designers suivants :
Abdi Abdelkader –  Antoine et Manuel –  Sam Baron –  Pascal Bauer –  Christian Biecher –  Mathilde et Marc Bretillot –  Philippe Di Méo –  Christian Duc –  Pierre de Gastines –  Adrien Gardère –  Kristian Gavoille –  Christian Ghion –  Éric Gizard –  Olivier Guillemin et Olivier Védrine –  Benoît Méléard –  Marco Menacci –  Jean Oddes –  Nestor Perkal –  Andrée Putman –  Eric Robin –  Pucci de Rossi –  Matt Sindall –  les TSE & TSE –  Frédérique Valette

Claude Deloffre (…) a eu l’idée, pour la fête des Mères (2005) , de demander à une trentaine de designers connus de travailler sur le thème du collier de nouilles. Ainsi, Marc et Mathilde Brétillot ont créé une colonne vertébrale de dinosaure longue de trois mètres, Andrée Putman a imaginé un collier en boules noires de macaroni et Christian Ghion a transformé les ‘fusilli’ en un bijou rare recouvert d’une couche d’argent…

  »Bande de nouilles ! -
« Depuis l’invention de la coquillette et de la pâte alphabet – merci Rivoire & Carret -, il n’est pas une maman qui se soit vue régalée, à l’occasion de la fête annuelle consacrant son statut, du sempiternel collier enfilé nouille après nouille par la chair de sa chair, le sang de son sang. Inscrite depuis la maternelle au programme des travaux pratiques dits d’éveil, cette nouillerie annuelle peut aussi prendre l’allure d’un « Maman je t’aime » en vermicelles à la sauce tomate séchée sur fond de papier de crèche avant de se transformer en travail du galet pour vide-poches (ça c’est pour la fête des Pères), nettement plus embarrassante.

C’est par et pour ce souvenir, «autant attendrissant qu’atroce», que la galeriste parisienne Claude Deloffre, fondatrice de la librairie culinaire Food, incontournable cocotte des signatures et lectures gourmandes du jour, a imaginé, telle une maîtresse de CP, de soumettre à la question une classe entière de designers. Au menu, interprétation espiègle et contemporaine du collier de pâtes par vingt-cinq « écoliers » (de nouilles) allant du chouchou au retardataire, du premier de la classe au petit Nicolas, du redoublant au planqué radiateur. Ont répondu à l’appel, et par ordre alphabétique : Abdi Abdelkader, Antoine et Manuel, Sam Baron, Pascal Bauer, Christian Biecher, Mathilde et Marc Bretillot, Philippe Di Méo, Christian Duc, Pierre de Gastines, Adrien Gardère, Kristian Gavoille, Christian Ghion, Éric Gizard, Olivier Guillemin et Olivier Védrine, Benoît Méléard, Marco Menacci, Jean Oddes, Nestor Perkal, Andrée Putman, Eric Robin, Pucci de Rossi, Matt Sindall, les TSE & TSE, et Frédérique Valette. Bref, rien que du gratin. Exposés et vendus jusqu’au 22 juillet chez Food, 58, rue Charlot, 75003 Paris. Pour collectionneurs sentimentaux, nouilleurs contrariés et parents d’élèves cruels. » (Les Echos 2007 – Série Limitée n° 37 du 10 Juin 2005 • page 15)

http://cafefilo.hautetfort.com/media/00/00/1298656961.jpg Colliers de nouilles : le spectacle

« Vive la fête des mères ! Le célèbre collier de nouilles semble indissociable de la fête des mères. Pourtant, chaque année, elles sont de moins en moins nombreuses à recevoir avec émotion ces cadeaux fignolés plusieurs jours à l’avance par leurs rejetons. Certaines écoles ont en effet décidé de supprimer cette activité. Le conservatoire des Curiosités, qui avait déjà sévi à Chevilly-Larue avec « la ménagerie mécanique » et « La crèche à moteur » a donc décidé d’aborder ce sujet difficile du collier de nouilles au travers d’une Conphérence singulière. Au programme les responsabilités éducatives des uns et des autres, les limites de la créativité en milieu scolaire, la valeur des preuves d’amour et la célébration de la poésie brute des imaginaires extravagants. » ( novembre 2007 )

MIAM ! des bijoux ! …… CHOCOLAT & C°…

 » While examining the psychological and sociological potency of chocolate ….. » (Anika Smulovitz)
en tout cas, si ce n’est le chocolat, qui inspire enormément (et particulièrement celui servi aux soirées de « l’Ambassadeur » ….. ;-) …..), la denrée alimentaire, détournée, inspire, et aspire à son rôle de bijou …. le stade « collier de pâtes » est largement dépassé, actuellement, un repas complet est possible, des « antipasti » au dessert ! quant ce n’est pas ce qui reste après un bon « gueuleton » qui nous est servi comme bijou … n’est ce pas Patricia Lemaire ???!!? emoticone

En tout cas, le thème a l’air d’être dans l’air du temps : voir le projet « Aesthetic Nutrition » d’Ana Cardim (juillet 2010) que je viens de trouver dans la dernière newsletter de Klimt02  : « With her project ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’, Ana Cardim seeks attention for the idea of the difference in quantity, and levels of value, between the esthetic value of gold and the value given to the basic human need for food. »

 

« I want to call attention to the power, importance, and beauty of   food. In our culture of  fast, disposable, and store-bought food, we often misunderstand our relationship to what we eat » ( Venetia Moushey Dale, in « 500 necklaces » book)

Mouche caramel/ caramel beauty spot   by Manolya KonukManolya Konuk- Mouche caramel/ caramel beauty spot (patch)

`Mute language` was used in the17th century by European aristocracy, as a way to talk with symbols rather than words. This beauty spot was a way to signify the intentions and dispositions of lovers.
Placing on the face or breast each have different meaning. As a finery made from caramel, the sweet jewel becomes a temptation to be eaten from the body itself. // Langague muet du XVII ème siècle, les mouches étaient le moyen de signifier ses intentions et ses dispositions. Ici de parure, le bijou sucré se fait tentation (Manolya Konuk- en vente à la Tate gallery)

Stephanie Hensle (DE)- ‘MEAT-LOVER’

« Meat. The word alone polarizes. For some it represents the sensuous, the erotic, life and carnal lust. For others it arouses associations of morbidity, decay and death. In its archaic and raw state it triggers aversion in many, but is welcome when served as a fragrant roast. It is peddled in discount shops and bargain counters, or traded for 200 euros per kilo.  Delving into these contrasting worlds, Stephanie Hensle explores the luxury of meat in context of adornment, indulging our lust for both on many levels. Inspired by the art of butchery, she packs resins, jewels and other traditional jewellery pieces into sausages and pâté. Throughout she redefines not only a typology for jewellery but also our relationships to creating and acquiring it. The act of slicing („100 grams of brooch, please“) defines the pedant or brooch pieces while addressing the system of value associated with jewellery. Typical sausage netting, meat hooks or skewers become fasteners attaching the pieces to the wearer. Left over pieces are wrapped like cold cuts for the purchaser‘s consumption.  A third group of pieces reflects on the human body as meat. Neck and body pieces hang like detached organs or mysterious growths. Cut open, they allow a glimpse into the skin-colored insides. And remind us, that the line between beauty and disquiet is fine yet elegant. » (Stephanie Hensle)

Le collier de la reine/ The queen necklaceManolya Konuk – ‘Le collier de la Reine’ – Here, perhaps more than in the other pieces, the material has taken up all importance. The queen necklace was the necklace of Marie Antoinette and hence can be seen as a prelude to the French Revolution. Symbol of excess and decadence, this jewel, never worn, caused the demise of the French Monarchy. Playing with words again, this chocolate abundance can provoke a ‘’crise de foi(e)’ which can be translated both as ‘‘sick by food’ as ‘‘loss of faith’.

Anika Smulovitz Chocolate jewelry installation Catherine Clark Gilbertson
Anika Smulovitz - Chocolate (a collaboration with artist Catherine Clark Gilbertson) -2002 – Ferrero Rocher chocolate wrappers

« This body of work explores human interaction with objects, specifically the interaction of our lips with objects. While examining the psychological and sociological potency of chocolate in the pieces entitled Love Tokens, I became aware of the sensual power of our lips. This culminated in Chocolate, a collaborative interactive installation comprised of a series of impressions made in the gold foil wrappers of Ferrero Rocher chocolates. The impressions are of puckered lips or teeth. In its use of repetition, mass quantities of « faux » gold foil, reference to chocolate and to the mouth, the installation speaks of consumption, indulgence, passion, and consumerism. » (Anika Smulovitz)

«  Gioielli da mangiare! Cathy, una giovane studentessa di arte, che ama creare bijoux e li presenta nel suo blog “La prochaine fois” Tra i suoi lavori, troviamo accessori realizzati con la frutta secca, l’idea da cui sono nati è curiosa: Durante un viaggio in Francia, Cathy ha assaggiato la frutta  essiccata e in particolare ha molto apprezzato il kiwi. Ritornata a casa, ha cercato questo tipo di frutta nei negozi americani ma non ha trovato niente del genere. Ha deciso allora di acquistare un essiccatoio per realizzare da sè queste dolcezze. Prima di mangiarsele però, Cathy le fotografava e, osservando la bellezza di queste fettine di frutta, ha deciso di sperimentare qualcosa di nuovo. Nascono così anelli e collane prodotti con le mele “Granny Smith” oppure “a base” di fettine di pera o di patate dolci. (« irisjewelry.it »)

« The fruit has been sealed, with either lacquer or wax. I wanted to see if these would hold up better/longer than the raw ones. However, I’m not a fan because it changes the meaning of the pieces somewhat – being sealed, they stop being about the moment and instead go into the preservation. And wax = bad because it just flakes off. I’m still on the hunt for different ways to treat the surface!«

Jacqueline de JONG, NL‘pommes de jong’ – 2009  varying sizes cm – jewelry – mixed media (gold-dipped potato skin

« For her current exhibition, de Jong has created a series of potato bijoux, « Pommes de Jong. » They consist of potatoes laid out to dry until they are totally shrivelled, and then dipped, roots and all, in a bath of molten gold, with surprising results – jewel-like objects in weird and wonderful forms.
Her interest in integrating the humble potato, which she cultivates in her garden in France, into her art, began in 2001 with her series of paintings inspired by Malevich, as the hair of The Farmer’s Wife (« Potato Hair »). This was followed in 2002 by a painted dialogue (« Harvest ») with the pioneering Russian artist.This theme continued with « Aardappeltaal’ (Potato Language), a collaboration with Jennifer Tee at the Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven in 2003. In 2006, participated in the Biennale di Ceramica dell’arte (curated by Roberto Orth), in Albissola, Italy, with an installation of ceramic objects of « baked potatoes » for the home and garden of the Danish artist Asger Jorn (1914-1973).

 project ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’, Ana Cardim

« How does nutrition, on a socio-economic level and in its’ most basic form, relate to the aesthetic values of today’s society? This question can only come from Ana Cardim, who has a passion to make interactive, sociable jewelry-art. This takes shape in her recent project “Aesthetic Nutrition”.
The project consists of a video, projected on a wall, three heaps of rice, chopsticks and three bowls containing one, two and three hand-made rice grains. Each grain is made from pure gold, weighs half a gram, and has the economic value of about 15 kilos of eatable dry rice. (How many grains would that be?) In total, the project exists of three grams of gold, enough for a beautiful gold ring, and 90 kilo’s of rice, which can provide a meal for 1800 people! In the video you’ll see a girl trying to eat it all… Everyone that visited ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’ was given a cup filled with delicious rice-pudding.
With her project ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’, Ana Cardim seeks attention for the idea of the difference in quantity, and levels of value, between the esthetic value of gold and the value given to the basic human need for food.
I am glad this project touches the subject of discrepancy in value and quantity from an aesthetic point of view. The rice-colored, ceramic bowls that contain the golden grains, are shaped like up-side-down rice heaps and make a good visual contrast with the actual heaps of rice. The chopsticks both separate and connect the two, underlining the visual link. The video shown on the wall, completes the display. The action of handing out cups of rice-pudding causes the viewer to connect to the exhibit. How can you resist thinking about the subject, when looking at the serene beauty of the whole set-up, whilst eating yummie pudding!
The launch of the ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’ project happened on the 6th of July, and was commissioned by Bypass, an art magazine that invites artists to write about their work. The second magazine is due to be released in October 2010 and will contain an extensive article by Ana Cardim.
‘Aesthetic Nutrition’ was held in Appleton Square, which is a multivalent space geared towards diverse artistic manifestations and towards the sharing of multidisciplinary experiences. It was the first time that they had work on display by a jewelry designer! » (Broes van Iterson)

COUP de COEUR ! Maria Cristina Bellucci et autres coups de crayon

Jusqu’à maintenant, les bijoux de Maria Cristina Bellucci  j’aimais bien … sans plus .. je trouvais ça bien fait (c’est vrai que chez elle c’est particulièrement bien fait, avec une belle finition !), amusant, coloré …. mais là, ce bracelet a basculé la donne !

Maria Cristina Bellucci - bracelet 'egg'Maria Cristina Bellucci - bracelet ‘Egg’ -Silver, coloured pencils – 2010

« Un oggetto comune che ha accompagnato tutta la mia vita. Tolte dal loro ambiente e decontestualizzate le matite  divengono irriconoscibili,  acquistano una nuova bellezza e una nuova funzione. Le matite colorate  a  sezione esagonale si incastrano perfettamente e divengono una superfice unica come le celle di un alveare.   Le tecniche usate sono quelle tradizionali dell’oreficeria e falegnameria, le matite sono lavorate come fossero un unico pezzo di legno e incollate come fossero pietre all’argento. Viene applicata una patina per rendere impermeabile il legno, si tratta di una cera mista ad oli usata in bioarchittettura, un prodotto naturale privo di tossicità,  è incolore permettendo la lettura cromatica delle mine in tutte le loro tonalità.  » (Maria Cristina Bellucci)

 » For several years I worked as theatre costume and accessories maker, creating also a wide range of jewellery for stage use. I developed a strong interest for contemporary jewellery and I dedicated myself to it.
As much as designing and making my own personal jewellery collection, I work on commission, and also design and create jewellery in collaboration with other artists and designers.
What characterized my early work was the use of very thin metal sheets and wires, experimenting with hollowness and fullness. In later work, I started using even thinner metal sheets, as if working with paper sheets, creating pieces that were voluminous and light at the same time.
My more recent work is characterised by having more solid looking elements and also by the introduction of colour, not previously explored.  » (Maria Cristina Bellucci)

 

Mais ….. pendant qu’on est dans le crayon …….. Margherita MARCHIONI en fait des bijoux … pointus ! ;-)
« materiamorfosi is the brainchild of Margherita Marchioni (IT), another talented young artist. Are we feeling old yet? all materials are fair game for this imaginative soul. rubber bands and plastic kitchen gloves morph into necklaces and bracelets. and pasta…oh what she does with pasta! more neckwear. plastic grocery bags too. and that’s not even her new stuff. My head is spinning – the recycled eyeglass sculptures, handbags made from photographic slides, chopsticks, pencils…i’m getting tired just thinking about it. I think it’s time for my nap. »
