EXPO ‘Materiality’ – J-Tour Gallery, Shanghaï (CN) – 5-20 Janv. 2014

« Materiality – Relationship between material and contemporary jewellery” , an exhibition curated by Anna Cheng, was hosted at Ame Gallery (Hong Kong) last month. It is our great honor to showcase works from 16 artists from all over the world, showing a wide spectrum of contemporary jewellery works.  The objective of this show is to highlight the use of unconventional materials used in contemporary jewellery today.

« Materiality”, the dual city exhibitions that feature 16 artists from around the world to interpret materiality in contemporary jewellery.
Material can be referred to as the physical or conceptual properties of the artwork. The Material the artist uses can be seen as a tool or a medium to convey his/her concepts and ideas. The Material itself can also be the inspiration, which becomes the focal point of the art piece.
The unconventional use of materials is one of key themes in contemporary jewellery today. Artists may use any materials that inspire them in their jewellery composition to tell a story and make a statement.
In this exhibition, we focus on the Material chosen by the artists and how it is used as the theme in their contemporary jewellery works.

If you have missed the show in Hong Kong, you can catch it in Shanghai : It will be at J-tour space  from 5 – 20 January.

Mina Kang

« I have earned a master’s degree of jewelry design at Kook-Min university and I am now in activity as a jewelry-making artist. From the young age, I got much interested in sewing and juwely making, thanks to the mother who are skillful in sewing and knotwork. Thru my works I am trying to express my various feelings and emotions in combination of lines, colours and the concept of space. »

« Her work is « Light, colorful, refreshing » – The pieces are sewn bits of fabrics in contrasting colors and malleable geometric shapes. The strictness of the architectural order of these round and angular objects is almost at odds with the airy materiality of the pieces. The sophisticated rhythm of the structure and color of the pins is in perfect sync with their technically precise construction. » (BKV-Prize 2012 for young applied arts)
