Jewellery artists from 22 countries all over the world come together in a memorial exhibition for Manfred Bischoff who passed away a year ago. At some point or other, they have all been taught by Manfred at Alchimia, contemporary jewellery school in Florence, and have each submitted one piece to the exhibition that honours a great teacher.
German born Manfred Bischoff lived in Tuscany in a house that was in itself a piece of exquisite art. Its magical interior made a natural and perfect framework for his work that has been called by many names: sensual, poetic, lyrical, great, intimate, strong, beautiful, satirical and always surprising. He worked in 22K gold, as pure as he could manage and still maintain a rigidity in the metal that allowed him to execute his ideas in delicate and well crafted pieces, often accompanied with subtle pink coral and drawings.
His dedication to the language of jewellery and his visions were most likely one of the reasons that the Alchimia school managed to become known and respected internationally in a relatively short time span.

The teacher
« As a student at Alchimia, you never really met Manfred until the third year. He was a giant figure who arrived to the narrow street in Florence on Tuesdays. He spent time with the older students, watched the world from behind his sunglasses when he leaned onto the wall at coffee breaks, and then he vanished again.
It was not until you were there yourself – in your final year – that you met the myth and began to appreciate his capacity to engage in your work and to show you how you might develop it. He was a surprisingly selfless teacher, and during critiques in the small classroom he managed to create a space for you and him to engage in a dialogue about your work that was stripped of second agendas and based solely on how he could help you to become a better artist.
It is only later, you come to understand how exceptionally truthful and helpful he tried to be in order to make you grow as a person and as an artist. »

and the WINNERS are :

1) Monica Cecchi
2) Lee Heejin
3) Marion Delarue

Motivazioni della giuria :

Monica Cecchi  - Olè!1. Monica Cecchi – « Olè! » ring
Per la sensibilità dimostrata dall’autrice nell’interpretare un materiale povero come la latta e nel saperlo tradurre in una composizione sofisticata, da un punto di vista formale ed esecutivo. La latta, infatti, costituisce l’unico elemento strutturale dell’opera. Se a prima vista la composizione appare astratta, essa contiene in realtà una parola giocosa come Olé!, coerente con l’approccio ironico e pop del materiale stesso.

Heejin Lee - Korean winter hazel:  COMINELLI AWARD 20152. Heejin Lee – « Korean winter hazel »
Un’opera senza tempo, che affonda le radici nel passato mantenendo alta la tensione tra funzionalità e poetica. È interessante come l’oggetto si completa una volta indossato: con la qualità del classico e l’accurata ricerca formale riesce anche a esprimere una sensibilità contemporanea.

Marion Delarue - Dark blue agate bangle COMINELLI AWARD 20153. Marion Delarue – « Dark blue agate » bracelet
Il bracciale evoca una concrezione geologica sezionata. Si ammira la capacità di tradurre con essenzialità di linee una profonda ricerca tecnica e l’innovativo assemblaggio di materiali diversi, come porcellana, vetro e chamot (un tipo di argilla). Fusi in un unicum, mantengono le loro caratteristiche e restano ben riconoscibili.

DECOUVERTE ….. Monica Cecchi, recup’ in red

Monica Cecchi

  »My studio is like a child’s playroom where everything is permitted but under the rule of my game. I almost always start with very free sketches trying to keep the lightness and spontaneity of the gesture on paper. During the planning and the execution I do not exclude any possibilities of changing my plan that the randomness or other events can suggest to me. I try to consider what is happening and choose what interests me at the that moment. I think it is a game played on the unconscious memory because my intention is to loose a certain kind of control in my creative phase losing the intent of reason to arrive at something that I have known but, at the same time, surprises me.
I try to reach a result that amazes me while I can recognize as something familiar, like when, during the day you notice something that reminds us of a dream the night before that you were not able to recall with an effort of will. I work both in field of jewelry and in sculpture probably because both of these two disciplines have a base of technical progress that is able to keep my ego and my opinion busy, until the end of the job.
One of the materials that I love are the old thin cans; I like their graphics because represent a certain type of history of society of the last century where the packaging was non junk it was reusable. These containers remind me of my childhood, of grandmother who preserved these boxes of cookies where they kept wires and button or other tools that they consider valuable. I am a passionate collector and, at the same time, a destroyer of these objects that have had a particular symbolism for me ranging from the protection and coercion, but at the same time, can be used as a palette for a painter and still possess a charm which doesn’t seek an explanation.
I really like using the old material, which has the signs of aging or has cracks that suggest their story without revealing it completely. Generally I join these objects, unique for and valuable for their history, with the material prized for its commercial value because it seems to me that this contrast is interesting and that between these two types of material a relationship and tension is born because their difference. »
