Biennale Bijou SAUVAGE – Design Flanders Gallery (BE) – 3-31 Dec. 2010

The exhibition Bold Jewelry | the 7th Biennal Bijou Sauvage is all about the jewel without any restrictions or rules.

The Biennale Bijou Sauvage is an initiative of the Wesel Art Gallery. It was first organised in May 1990 by jewelry designer Claude Wesel.
Sauvage: as occurring in nature, unrestrained, tempestuous, uncultivated, no longer under control (dictionary definition).
A number of designers were asked back then to design a piece of jewelry in which they could completely indulge themselves, against all the conventions and usual rules.
Avoid working the way you always do. Go in search of what you know least about yourself. Be an iconoclast and rid yourself of the academic straightjacket”.
The result was both a confrontation and a dialogue among the most divergent of inspirational sources and styles.
Bijou Sauvage stimulates the jewelry designer to create a piece of jewelry in his or her own, highly individual manner. The universal aspect leads many to rediscover their relationship with art, to reach, unrestricted, the deepest layers of their artistic ability.
“All risks are fair if they protect our soul from death” (Claude Wesel)

colectivo Bórax08001

« Borax is a basic component in jewellery because it prevents oxide from forming and, at the same time, works as a flux favoring the flow of metal when it is being soldered and fused. The bórax08001 collective acts as an antioxidant that drives our artistic creation, but also as a flux, favoring the flow of ideas and concepts as well as the development of new techniques and trends in contemporary artistic jewellery.
We come from multiple geographic coordinates and backgrounds. This particularity has enriched us personally and as a group ever since our paths crossed at the Escola Massana (Barcelona, Spain). As we grew up and deepened our skills as jewellers at Massana, strong synergies and complicities were created between us. And we have chosen bórax08001 as the means to keep them alive, searching for new horizons and goals while sharing experiences and learning from each other.
Our work can be defined as the cartography of personal and experimental dialogues through contemporary artistic jewellery. Dialogues through matter, space, color… based on quests, poems, memories, doubts, thoughts, mistakes, games, dreams, intuition, perfection, light, consciousness, unconsciousness, beauty, and emotions.
Bórax08001 means contemporary, artistic signature jewellery. Signature, because we value work from beginning to end and we wish to recover the value of authenticity, taking pride and joy in creating high-quality jewellery, putting special emphasis on the details. Contemporary, because our pieces of jewellery speak for us and reflect the society we live in. And artistic because we strive to express ourselves through metaphors and symbols while we create unique pieces. »
