Tarragona. "Joies a part" Exhibition at Galeria Silvestre. 15-26 Nov 2014(collar Telma Simoes)

Pensar la joyería, es pensar el cuerpo y la responsabilidad de como este cuerpo transporta y al mismo tiempo se modifica para traer una joya. Ésta ahora es una pieza de arte que llevamos encima, íntima y cercana. Pensar en joyería es pensar en miniatura, en la medida de las cosas a partir del cuerpo, de la mano, del dedo.
Una joyería dinámica en el sentido de relación, de comunicación, pequeñas historias que circulan. Pequeños mapas, ideas, conceptos, improntas, recuerdos…que se adaptan a nuestra manera de entender y cuestionar el mundo.
Este ciclo propone 3 colectivos de joyeras y joyeros que apuestan por una joyería cercana al espectador, donde este mismo es el expositor, y es quien coge conciencia de esto. La persona que trae la joya, entiende lo que lleva, y puede explicar el porqué lo lleva, es el portavoz de quien la ha realizado, como también el tirano que se lo adaptará al cuerpo. De aquí la importancia de hacer llegar el mensaje a la gente de qué entendemos por joyería. Esta relación cuerpo-joya, es la que queremos analizar y pensar en nuestro espacio. Joyas que explican y modifican un pensamiento. Y sobre todo como ésta pasea por la ciudad. De qué manera invadirá el espacio lo decidirán cada uno de los colectivos que nos visitarán en la Galería Silvestre.

Decouverte : Olga NORONHA

Classé dans : Central Saint Martins (UK),Olga NORONHA (PT),Portugal (PT) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:35

Olga Noronha is currently finalizing her Major in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins, London, and will be with us in our first Tea Fashion Point

Olga started with beads and pliers, moving forward to sapphires, rubies, diamonds, steal, plastic, rubber, glass, olive branches, etc. “The word jewellery has always been linked to the idea of noble materials such as gold, silver and gemstones. Gemstones are now replaces by crystals, metals by rubbers, plastics, glass and a huge spectrum of materials that achieve an equal or even greater aesthetic value.” – Olga Noronha, 2008.

The harmony of movement and the synchronicity and dependence of all the body parts make the expression of the body the most beautiful human act. The jewel becomes a vital detail and Olga does it best. Her immense creativity and restless search for knowledge make her collections a delight pleasure to our eyes and hands.  “My aim, within the jewellery matter is to relentlessly examine the relationship between bodies, attitudes and surroundings, both in the wearer’s and the audience’s points of view and to create art pieces that celebrate the marriage of sturdy mechanics and delicate anatomies, constantly challenging and exploring the relationship of interactivity, and illustrating the connection between ‘to see’ and ‘to be seen’. My wish is for people not to be apathetic towards my work, whatever the reaction – good or bad, welcoming doubts for they may lead to surprise.” – Olga Noronha, 2011.


Having developed a piece called “Avant-Garde” for Swarovski and exhibited at London Swarovski’s headquarters(2008), with a collection entitled “Dirty Tissues”, featuring since 2009 at the Central Saint Martin’s Museum, Olga is currently developing her final year collection,  that could be described as “Surgical Jewels”. This project is focused on the analysis of physicality and intellectuality, and their manipulation, by exploring the merger of anatomy and medicine with the creation of “objects-jewels” intimately related to the human body. For this, Olga is using actual surgery tools and turning them into jewellery pieces by moving them from a scientific context to an artistic point of view, and creating pieces that can be seen as “new- orthosis”. “May the objects be as if in dialogue with its own ambience, meaning the body where it is placed, social or intellectual phenomena and the ambiguity shown in the relationship between the viewer and the object, allowing the first to see the body as its own garment and also to help overcoming eventual traumas and fears related to surgical gadgets” – Olga Noronha, 2011.

‘Conflict’ (18 juin 2011, Central St Martins) is an exploration of a merger between anatomy, medicine and jewel-like objects. The combined use of actual surgery tools and their replicas are transformed into jewellery pieces without being dissociated from their original function. My intention is to turn the distasteful into the desirable, to switch the response from rejection to attraction.’

CONFLICT : REJECTION / ATTRACTION

THE EXPLORATION OF A MERGER OF ANATOMY AND MEDICINE WITH THE CREATION OF OBJECTS-JEWELS INTIMATELY RELATED TO THE HUMAN BODY; THE COMBINATION OF ACTUAL SURGERY TOOLS AND THEIR REPLICAS TURNED INTO JEWELLERY PIECES, WITHOUT BEING DISSOCIATED FROM THEIR ORIGINAL FUNCTIONS; AND THE CREATION OF PIECES THAT ASSUME A NEW CONCEPT OF ORTHOSIS.
AN INTENTION TO TURN THE OBNOXIOUS INTO DESIRABLE.
