EXPO ‘New Masters’ – South Karelia Art Museum, Lappeenranta (Finland) – 26 Oct.-9 Dec. 2012

New Masters

Saimaa University of Applied Sciences presents nine new Masters of Culture and Art from fine art studies in the South Carelian Art Museum in Lappeenranta, Finland. The viewers of this MA-degree exhibition will experience new images, questions and encounters. What happens if jewellery is the human body? How are the chaos theory and order linked in shape of a stone chain? What are those old men doing in the art work of a young artist?
In the exhibition the discount percentages of shops are visible in the faceted stones and super shiny surfaces. Personal memories are shown as rough stone pendants. The starting point for an art work can begin from a tradition of herbarium or the identity of the artist in between two countries and cultures. Beside materialistic approaches, the exhibition shows contemporary jewellery with a twist of moving images and also a collection of hundred fairies with butterfly wings.
NEW MASTERS exhibition shows proposals and views to the nowadays fine art. The nine artists of this exhibition have in common not only the new degree, but they have been working as international artists and have previous education in fine art and design.

Une ombre, une trace, un souvenir, évanescent, en pointillé … dans le métal ….. c’est l’impression laissée (dans le métal) par les titres des bijoux de Nelli Tanner : « Traces », « Shades », « Light to Carry », « Staying in the shadows », « Covered by snow  » ….. une attente blanche depuis la Finlande, forte de sa délicatesse …. comme des traces d’oiseau laissées dans la première neige, comme l’écriture d’un souvenir, en creux, en braille ….

« Starting point for my working is in everyday life. I make long detours by listening stories on my way home on the bus, finding beauty in broken objects, walking in my surroundings where there is wood and forgotten man made marks on the landscape.
I carry camera and sketchbook with me all the time. I stop my walk on the street to take a snapshot of a moment which otherwise will be forgotten or unseen. I try to catch something I don’t understand or makes me troubled.
I collect other people’s photos, characters of people, make small stories of these with materials to my working table. This transfers into jewellery through a process-based working.
Sometimes jewellery is only about a small hole on a white paper. What remains is the memory of the act.

EXPO ‘A Sense of Place’ – The National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh (UK) – 18 Mai-16 Sept. 2012

A Sense of Place: New Jewellery from Northern Lands

Management: Beth Legg

Response piece by Tobias Alm

Response piece by Tobias Alm - Brooch 2011 - Anter, wood, thread, paper and silver

This exhibition explores the relationship contemporary jewellers have with their environment. Six nations are involved in the project, each at the northern edge of European jewellery practice, and each with their own individual cultural histories and heritage.

As part of a doctorate research project, sixteen emerging, and established, jewellers from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Scotland were asked to make two new works. The first piece was informed by a box of collected objects and materials that each artist gathered from an environment which is significant to them. This collection became a research process towards their tangible interpretation of place.

These ‘Topophilia’ (love of a place) boxes were then swapped, anonymously and at random, for another artist’s box that formed the stimuli for the second piece of jewellery. The work is displayed in pairs alongside the corresponding box of source materials illustrating the different approaches taken by artists with the same stimuli. Visitors can compare how the artist’s work is affected by working from the objects they have chosen and from objects that have been selected by someone else.

The collections in the boxes and the finished work are poetic responses to feelings of belonging through the language of making. This project is a celebration of our cultural links through our lived experience of our environment; cementing the bonds of cultural identity through collected and crafted material objects and forming new connections to our place in the world.
