EXPO ‘Telling Tales’ – Art House gallery, Mevasseret Zion (Israel) – 31 Janv.- 28 Fevr. 2014

« Telling Tales« , curated by Jennifer Navva Milliken & Yael Friedman -

Narratives in Contemprary Metal and Jewelry Art

The exhibition presents new works by 22 artists who work primarily in metals, silversmithing, or conceptual art jewelry. Participating artists responded to a curatorial call for artistic interpretations of the stories and fables that have shaped and influenced them. What happens when artists translate the world’s oldest tales into works of art ? The exhibition explores the role of fairy tales, legends, myths, and fables in shaping cultural mores and values, and the influence these time-honored narratives — ranging from the fantastical to the pedagogical to the sternly moralistic — have had on our contemporary existence.

Noa Liran's "Hansel and Gretl" .................Noa Liran‘s « Hansel and Gretl » is a solution to the design problem faced by Grimm’s infamous brother-sister team. Answering the curatorial call for interactions with non-precious materials, the artist meticulously wrapped popcorn with foil chocolate wrappers, protecting the make-shift trail markers from the hungry birds of the forest. As the pieces accumulated, Liran strung them together, continuing right up until the opening of the exhibition. Her work, as much about the tale it serves as it is about processes of inspiration and creation, illustrates parallels between storytelling and art-making

In her work for « Telling Tales, » Anat Golan investigated the tropes of the hero and the heroine in legends and fairy tales and found the gap between archetypal standards of character (particularly in female prototypes) and reality to be unsettlingly divergent. Identifying 2 heroines and a villainess based on their particular virtues and flaws, she created medals of honor for each; the resulting composite personality offers a more authentic portrait of an idiosyncratic contemporary heroine, who — like fairy-tale heroes — has overcome obstacles, suffered loss, and survived to tell the tale.

about the « Inyanim Group »:
« The Inyanim Group operates in the fields of jewelry-making and jewelry design. Its aim is to create a platform of creative opportunity and legitimacy for the individuals within the group and within a wider social context.
Inyanim was formed by graduates of the two leading Israeli art and designschools, Bezalel and Shenkar which, while championing different, often opposing views regarding design and art, have much in common. The Inyanim Group seeks to influence the public discourse surrounding the role of design in society through the unique and underrepresented field of jewelry design.
The eleven members of the group meet regularly for a process of thinking, listening and creating – like rehearsals before a performance. In ongoing exhibitions, the group then displays its latest “harvest” of works, thus opening a window onto their creative process. »

Die Ausstellung „Transit“ gibt einen Einblick in den aktuellen Stand des zeitgenössischen Schmucks in Israel. Nach den Stationen im Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim, im Deutschen Goldschmiedehaus Hanau und in der Stiftung Villa Bengel, Idar-Oberstein, zeigt der Bayerische Kunstgewerbe-Verein die von Jürgen Eickhoff (Galerie Spektrum, München) kuratierte Ausstellung in seiner Galerie für Angewandte Kunst.

Was unterscheidet israelische Schmuckkünstler von ihren deutschen Kollegen? Es sind die Lebensumstände, sagt Iris Fishof, jüdische Kunsthistorikerin und Autorin des Katalogs. „Die politische Situation in der Region spiegelt sich in zahlreichen Werken wider. Manche Künstler machen ein klares Statement und äußern lautstarken Protest, während andere mit leiseren Tönen an die Sache herangehen. Der brisante Fragenkomplex Kriege, Terror, Ungerechtigkeit drückt sich auf unterschiedliche Weise aus. Einige Künstler setzen sich mit dem Leid auseinander und zeigen Mitgefühl mit den Opfern. Andere offenbaren Trauma und Angst. Nicht in allen Arbeiten jedoch sind unmittelbare Spuren der politischen Situation ablesbar. Die Wahl von Medium und Verfahren steht bei einigen Arbeiten der Ausstellung im Vordergrund. Die Werkstoffe sind einfach und schlicht. Diese Anspruchslosigkeit des Materials verbindet sich oft mit einer Ästhetik, die der Tradition der Schmuckgestaltung nicht entspricht. Sie bewegt sich zwischen minimalistischer Einfachheit einerseits und Vulgärem und Trashigem am anderen Ende der Skala“.

Den wichtigsten Beweggrund der Künstler fasst Kurator Jürgen Eickhoff zusammen: „Der politische Einfluss in der Aussage des Schmucks ist bedeutend höher als bei uns. Hier sind vor allem zwei Dingen auffällig: Zum einen ist die politische Situation ein deutliches und direktes Thema für viele Künstler, auch im
Schmuckbereich. Diese „Politisierung“ der Thematik im Schmuck ist in Israel deutlich stärker ausgeprägt als hierzulande. Das zweite ist das Phänomen, dass es eine kontinuierliche Entwicklung gibt, die von vielen getragen wird, die oft nur über wenige Jahre beim Schmuck bleiben und dann zum Design oder zur freien Kunst wechseln. Also eine Beständigkeit der Entwicklung, die nicht unbedingt an immer dieselben Künstler gekoppelt ist.“

Welche Sprache spricht zeitgenössischer Schmuck aus Israel?
„Die Werkstoffe, die die Schmuckmacher verwenden, sind verhältnismäßig schlicht“, resümiert Iris Fishof. „Sie reichen von Silber über recyceltes Papier zu Holz. Gold findet sich kaum. Steine sind rar. Außer Silber kommen ein paar Metalle zur Verwendung, desgleichen Glasperlen, textile und synthetische Materialien und Fundstücke. Diese Schlichtheit der Werkstoffe ist in der israelischen Kunst anerkannt und bekannt als „Want of Matter“.
In vielen Stücken der Ausstellung spürt man die Freude am Experimentieren mit neuen Techniken.
Deutlich zu beobachten ist eine Rückkehr zum Handwerklichen. Sogar industrielle Materialien wie Aluminiumnetz werden mit handwerklichen Verfahren fachgerecht verarbeitet. Die Farbgebung ist im Großen und Ganzen eher gedämpft. Einfarbigkeit, vor allem Grau und ein paar Brauntöne, herrschen vor. Die Farben sind möglicherweise eine Antwort auf die Landschaft
Israels, die zeitweise trocken und karg ist. Leuchtende Farben finden sich, wenn überhaupt, vor allem in Arbeiten mit Email, Epoxitharz und Fundstücken. Die Rückkehr zum Ornamentalen, ein globaler Trend, ist auch im zeitgenössischen Schmuck aus Israel zu beobachten. Blumen und Unkräuter, eine Arabeske, Tiere und sogar ein als politisches Abzeichen getragener Panzer – das sind alles Ornamente. Die Schmuckstücke vermitteln eine neue Ästhetik. Sie haben keinen Glamour und sind nicht verführerisch im herkömmlichen Sinne.
Aber einige strahlen eine poetische Schönheit oder Aura aus, während der Reiz von anderen in ihrem rohen und scheinbar unfertigen Aussehen liegt.“

Contemporary Jewellery from Israel -  Munich: Galerie Spektrum, 2012 – 176 pages

The exhibition gives insight into the actual state of contemporary jewellery in Israel. It shows the qualities and particular characteristics of Israeli jewellery artists as well as the differences with respect to the jewellery scene in Central Europe.


EXPO ‘I am an Other’ – Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv (IL) – 10 Juin-20 Nov. 2012

« I am an Other »

The sixth exhibit of Israeli jewelry deals with the perception of « the other self, » or the alter ego. Fifty-three artists participating in the exhibit set out on an inner journey, the process resulting in diverse expressions: virtuosic jewelry-makers who are usually meticulous in their work chose to free themselves of the constraints and make room for expression ; some used organic materials; some turned to figurative creation, thus giving the human form an expression of « the other self, » while other artists chose the abstract to convey biographical moments. Some preferred the multitude so as not to focus the idea of « the other self » on a single item, while others preferred simplification and catharsis. It appears that the majority of Israeli jewelry-makers do not wear the jewelry they create, and some wear no jewelry at all. For this exhibit they created jewelry for themselves.

Israeli Jewelry - Shenkar

« The selection of an abstract concept for this exhibition – Alter Ego (the Self as Other) — generated an extensive and riveting dialogue with participating artists. The process that resulted engendered layered and varied works that reflect the multi-faceted nature of this concept.  The underlying premise the artists were invited to consider was the notion that the ornamental artifact — an intimate object placed directly on the body — can represent parts of the Self, including its inverse or hidden elements.  The ornament also draws the gaze of others; the visual cues it offers subtly influence other forms of communication.
The roots of the term alter ego come from ancient Greek philosophy.  When Zeno of Cittium, founder of the Stoic school of Greek Philosophy, was asked, “what is a friend?” he responded: “allos ego,” that is, alter ego.  In a similar vein, Aristotle suggested that a friend should be treated like a second self.  Over time, the word ego came to mean “I” in Latin.  In the modern era, Sigmund Freud extended the word’s meaning when he defined it as a central element of the psyche.  The alter ego has been seen by psychology mainly as the inversion of the way the Self normally presents itself publicly.  But the notion remains vague and elusive.
The alter ego has many cultural expressions: in pop and rock music, where artists embody fictional figures through which they can present new and experimental musical content; in the world of Comics, where an everyday person turns into a superhero; in literature that deals with two sets of personalities within a single person, and more.  Philosophers discussed the alter ego in the context of reciprocal relations, and as part of the effort to understand the Self.  As it turns out, scientists have found that a “mirror neuron network” in the brain allows us to experience the Other’s gestures as though they were our own, so that observing others is an inseparable element of self-understanding.
After they were introduced to the varied cultural manifestations of the alter ego, the jewelry makers were invited to design a jewel that would reflect their own alter ego.  Some artists chose to shed the rigid discipline that characterizes their virtuoso work, and allowed chance to influence the artifact, suggesting an alter ego that is out of control; others chose a figurative image of a face or person meant to convey a miniaturized Self, or created prostheses and additions to the face, embodying aspects of the self that go unexpressed in daily life; several chose animals to convey the complex relation with the Other – an ally or a distant and threatening figure.  Others chose images suggesting motion, such as boats representing sailing from the exterior inwardly and vice versa.  Some artists worked with abstract forms generated from a clear, personal context, forms that permitted a different self to momentarily show through; others worked with round shapes that express the Yin Yang principle and with it the notion that we must harmonize the contradictory elements of the self.  Finally, several artists related to the written word or a writing implement as a way to represent either the Self or the alter ego.
It seems that the exhibition highlights the fact that jewel-craft – a realm of intricate detail – spans a great deal of conceptual space.  Jewelers contract entire worlds into physical artifacts measured in centimeters, but the variety of responses engendered in the vast arena surrounding a single idea is near infinite. » Nirith Nelson,  Curator

Die Ausstellung gibt einen Einblick in die Besonderheiten im israelischen Schmuckschaffen und die Unterschiedlichkeit zur mitteleuropäischen Schmuckszene. Es ist das erste Mal, dass eine solche Überblicksschau in Deutschland gezeigt wird. Dabei fällt auf, dass die politische Situation auch im Schmuckbereich ein vorrangiges Thema für viele Künstler ist. « Diese ‘Politisierung’ der Kunst ist in Israel deutlich stärker ausgeprägt als hierzulande », erläutert Kurator Jürgen Eickhoff. Bereits seit den frühen 1970er Jahren ist eine kontinuierliche Entwicklung zu beobachten, bei der jedoch die Protagonisten häufig wechseln: Es gibt kaum israelische Künstlerpersönlichkeiten im Schmuck, die über Jahrzehnte ihrem Ausdrucksmittel treu bleiben. Viele beschäftigen sich nur wenige Jahre mit Schmuck und wechseln dann in andere Disziplinen des künstlerischen Schaffens.

Die längjährige Tradition des zeitgenössischen Schmucks dokumentieren die drei Künstlerinnen der Lehrergeneration Bianca Eshel Gershuni, Vered Kaminski und Deganit Stern-Schocken. Ihr Schaffen ist weiterhin aktuell und hat einen wesentlichen Einfluss auf die junge Generation. Deren Auffassung von Schmuck und die Vielfalt der Positionen werden durch Arbeiten von 15 Absolventen deutlich. Insgesamt sind rund 200 Objekte von 18 Teilnehmern zu sehen. Kuratiert wird die Schau von Jürgen Eickhoff, der seit 1981 die Galerie Spektrum in München führt.

B-side DownTownArtJewellery Festival is an energetic, self-created festival for jewellery artists. The 2nd edition takes place from the 3rd until the 6th of November 2011 and brings together a series of jewellery exhibitions and performances in the city of Amsterdam. This event is initiated by min-association; Maaike Ebbinge – Iris Tsante – Noémie Doge,

who graduated from Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2007 and 2008.
B-side gives artists the opportunity to explore new ways of showing their jewellery to the world. Each artist is encouraged to take responsibility for his of her own part in a bigger chain or route.
B-side emphasises the festive side of a festival and celebrate the art of jewellery. The aim of the festival is to show different ways of presenting and thinking about art jewellery through exhibitions and performances. It allows exploration of spaces that aren’t usually used for exhibition purposes, for example parks, ateliers, bicycles, empty buildings, a living room, a café or the back of a car.
B-side happens simultaneously with other inspiring jewellery events in Amsterdam.
B-side shows designs that go very much beyond mass-produced jewellery. It shows an artistic way of presenting and dealing with jewellery. The value of this jewellery is not defined by precious metals, but by their visual force and strong concept.
There are many jewellery artists working in Amsterdam. Three of the four most renowned Dutch jewellery galleries are based here, and the jewellery department of the Rietveld Academy is well-k

nown for its active students and teachers. We are very happy to be able to celebrate Amsterdam’s special connection to jewellery with this special platform for art jewellery.
B-side, another side of jewellery.
B-side DownTownArtJewellery Festival is organised by: (Maaike Ebbinge, Iris Tsante & Noémie Doge)

Where the heart is

”Strong wind in the face, the sea roaring loudly, lots of curious materials hidden in the sand, my thoughts explore the freedom of space. This is where the heart is, this is where my jewellery pieces are born.” M.E.

“I like working intensively with materials. When the materials start “speaking” and taking their own way, that is where their heart is.” I.T.

“I search for hidden stories by dismantling forgotten relics; I reinvent them picking up the pieces; I’m a treasure hunter, ferreting where their heart is. ” N.D.

EXPO ‘I Care A Lot – Opening’ – Gallery Platina, Stockholm (Sweden) – 2 Sept.-2 Oct. 2010

A Portable Discussion about current issues in the Middle East.
42 juried jewellery artists from 22 countries showing work on the conflict

 Why jewelry?
« Jewelry is an intimate art medium within the private and the public space which offers a personal relationship and an encounter between the wearer ,the viewer audience and the actual jewelry. It is an invitation to start a conversation and it can make a meeting possible. The body is a portable show case and the wearer chooses what and how to exhibit on him/her. Jewelry express the wearer character and sense of humor, it acts as an extension to the wearer personality, indicating his/her group of belonging, it is asking questions or claiming its opinion about the reality in which we live in, about our society, our surrounding and ourselves« 

The project aim is to raise discussion about current issues in the Middle East through an international art exhibition in which jewellery is the chosen media.
42 pieces of artists from 22 countries were selected independently by five international jury members – experts in their fields of studies and practice: Dr. Otto von Busch (Sweden) – Fashion Activist, Love Jonsson (Sweden) – Craft Critic, Prof’ Vered Kaminski (Israel) – Jewellery Artist, Shari Pierce (USA, Germany) – Jewellery Artist, Dr. Nada Shabout (USA,Qatar) – Art Historian

Cause We Care.
The region’s history and present are seeded with continuous violent national, ethnic and other conflicts. In many aspects the Middle East is considered to be one of the most sensitive and unstable regions in the world; strategically, economically, politically, culturally and religiously. It is located in the center of the international politics agenda. Its historical role, its huge reserves of crud oil and its significance for the three largest monotheist religions are usually taken as reasons for the world’s ardent interest in the region. But the attitude towards the Middle East has pasted the point of a keen interest in world affairs. By now it seems clear that the Middle East is perceived, especially by consumers of Western media, as the place where world dramas converge, or – more accurately – collide. It is almost the opposite of the Bermuda Triangle: everything that happens there pops up on our radars.
What is the Middle East? What is the source of our attraction to it? Is it just that it happens to be the most eventful place on earth? What is the nature of our commitment to effecting the future of the region? Do we really care about what goes on there? Do we really care about what goes on anywhere that is elsewhere? Do we care about the Middle East in a way similar to the way we care about how people look at us? Do we care about it the way we care about what people see in us?

Claire Baloge (FR) -  Camel dung, gold leaf, silk (collier en crottes de chameau … j’adore !!)

« I have chosen to use camel dung, because  it’s shape and color. Although the use of camel dung in jewelry may provoke it also links: in those (not so) far-away countries, many people are still using these animals, and their excrement, in daily life, while some others, a few miles away , are smoking the cigars of the oil business. I have chosen to use gold because gold is the referential measurement on which the whole world economy is founded. It remains a major symbol for jewelry, almost everywhere around the world. While camels are traditionally emblems of the noble class, in the nomad society, a clear mark of wealth and importance. It seems to be two different temporalities, which are still sharing the same space, coexisting in the same territories. »

Ela Bauer (NL) ‘An’necklace -black & red thread

« 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)

Katja Prins (NL)-’Bound by Blood’ Necklace – 2007 – wooden beads, cotton

 » This necklace brings together and mixes various prayer-necklaces, which only differ in detail. Prayerbeads are being used in several religions and they all have their own systematical design. The beads stands for the different prayers and by following the beads you can’t loose track and count while you are praying. The Roman-Catholic church has the ‘rosary”, the Islam has the “tespi”,  Buddhism (Nichiren) has the “juzu”and Tibetan Buddhism has the “mala”. Nowadays we are living in a time of globalization. Worldwide people are connecting more and more, not only economically, but also politically and culturally. Borders are fading and people travel and migrate more than ever. Out of that comes integration of different cultures and religions. Partly because of the not always so very successful integration-policy of many countries, extremism in certain religions also flourishes, conflicts arise. With this/my interpretation of the prayer-necklace I want to bring together all  prayer-necklace and make 1 out of it all.  A contemporary blood red prayer necklace. In my opinion the religions don’t differ so much from one another, they differ mostly in details. That’s what I want to show with this necklace. By bringing together all the prayerbeads, symbolically I want to bring together the different religions and with that the people. The title “Bound by Blood” stands for the idea that on the inside we are all the same. It also refers to the many wars (and with that the shedding of a lot of blood) that have been fought in the name of religion » (Katja Prins (NL))

Burcu Buyukunal (TR) -’Terrifying Beauty’ head piece – brass, cubic zirconia – Turkey, 2009

« My work is driven by conventions and societal norms relating to the body prevalent in history both past and present. Plastic surgery, alternative medicine, and ways of predicting the future are belief  systems whose underpinnings I am uncertain of. I use my work to illustrate my inability to reconcile the purposes, needs, and motives of these systems and the people who subscribe to them. As a fairly recent development in mass culture, plastic surgery is a system that suggests attaining beauty popularized by the media. ‘Terrifying Beauty’ focuses on the trends of cosmetic surgery, which  oftentimes impose the conception of Western Beauty, to question conventions of beauty and  challenge the function of jewelry as adornment. I created four pieces distorting the face in an unlikely way, contrasting and contradicting the purpose of traditional jewelry. I want my work to surprise and challenge people to inspire questioning. Suggesting something extreme, unusual, and irrational is one strategy to achieve this. I hope the viewer will immediately ask if they would or would not wear such pieces. I wanted to use gold first but it was expensive for me. So, I used brass that looks like gold in the photos. Then I noticed that material hierarchy was another convention. Thus, using brass supported my idea. My forms simply followed the function of each piece.« (Burcu Buyukunal)

Sally Von Bargen (USA) – ‘Elegy’ Necklace – Brass, paper, digital photos

« ‘Elegy’ honors the individual men and women who left homes … travelled to Iraq for war and died there. It is about the pain of loss and lies, etched with the words, « lies brought this lament – this elegy of truth – these lost treasures.
Elegy is a monumental neck-piece consisting of over 4200 digital portraits. Each portrait shows one American man or woman who lost life in Iraq during the Bush presidency. Using public  records for the names and photos of the fallen, if no portrait was available a silhouette was used to represent the lost life. Each Elegy portrait is printed on acid-free paper, which was chosen for its workability. The prints were mounted on an intermediate paper layer and sandwiched back-to-back to form a simple 1.5cm x 3cm link.  The links were connected by brass rings and formed into 70 strands which terminate at brass disk. The disc is etched with the words, “lies brought this lament – this elegy of truth -these lost treasures. » (Sally Von Bargen)
