EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Reka Lőrincz – « Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious » at Putti Art Gallery, sept. 2017

Reka Lőrincz

5 new pieces on show at Putti Art Gallery  during September 2017 (08-27 Sep 2017) :  Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Jewellery is not only jewellery

(next exhibition : 2018: Fair  07 Mar 2018 – 13 Mar 2018  Schmuck 2018.)

« On the border of kitsch and consume Réka Lörincz from Budapest and Gisbert Stach from Munich show a colourful kaleidoscope of works defining field of jewellery in a new creative way »
«  There are many misunderstandings in the common meaning of jewellery and in the thinking of what jewellery should be.
On the border of kitsch and consume Réka Lörincz from Budapestand Gisbert Stach from Munich show a colourful kaleidoscope of jewellery, objects, installations and films where they try to define and enlighten the field of jewellery in a new humoristic, critical and philosophical way.
Both are doing as well collaborations in making jewellery pieces.

 
Réka Lörincz’s jewellery is playing with the colourful world of plastics and toys that she is deforming by absurd and surrealistic elements into amazing jewellery pieces. Their objects are pretending to have a function. But by combining abstract materials the visitor is surprised by the humour and colourfulness of the installation. Reka Lorincz has studied in Hungarian University of Craft and Design, has shown her works in various group and personal exhibitions around the world. » (Klimt02)

Jewellery exhibitions are often presented in sterile glass cabinets. This leads to a distance between object and viewer and limits the freedom, which could develop in this sensual encounter.
Here, at the exhibition tog_ther !, curated by Gisbert Stach and Rose Stach, the motto is: chairs instead of showcases!
Twenty international author jewellery artists gather with their extraordinary objects in dialogue with strongly individualistic seats, from weight benches to a sandbag wall.
A potently interactive chair by Christoph Zellweger from Switzerland; a self-portrait stool by Arek Wolski from Warsaw; cheap pretense and reality from two female Budapest artists; and David Bielander Thonet chair sausage links, are among what’s to find.
Two female artists from Budapest play with cheap pretence and reality. Emese Benczúr forms the words “LET IT SHINE” on a rainbow-coloured surface using ear studs, while Réka Lörincz presents grooming gloves with enticingly glittering golden nails on a lavatory lid in her piece of art titled  Woman at Work. David Bielander, a native of Basel now living in Munich, even transforms the chair itself into a jewellery object by removing elements of the curved armrest of a Thonet chair and shaping them into sausage necklaces, explaining that the sausages had always been present in these chairs and he has now “set them free”!

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Reka Lőrincz – you are what you eat

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Hongrie (HU),Reka LORINCZ (HU) — bijoucontemporain @ 23:47

Reka Lőrincz

Un humour jubilatoire, grinçant, décapant, à tout va, qui dénonce, montre du doigt, ce qu’on mange, ce qu’on avale -mentalement comme physiquement- , ce qu’on croit ou qu’on veut nous faire croire ……

« Jewellery design means the interpretation of today’s world to me. A sort of communication between the outside world and that of my own. Making the invisible visible. Through my jewels I am contemplating the tangled variety of the universe. Heaps of emotions and thoughts pass through my mind through the impulses of the environment which I examine and turn them into objects. I am intrigued by the street. What exactly means what I see. Through my objects I mainly tried to reflect the difference between that of the shown and the real world which can sometimes look appealing, fake or even dangerous. »

Avec tous les médicaments que j’avale (merci mon diabète !!! :-( …) je commencerai par cette broche qui m’enchante !!! entre « boulimie du médoc » et « boulimie du bijou » …… ;-)

« Budapest-based Reka Lörincz is an award-winning artist who typically expresses social criticism – such as concerns with commercialisation, mass production and popular culture –through 3D objects.
Her ‘Too Much is Not Enough” collection  is the perfect example.
Populated with symbols of 1950s diner culture, which are then translated into kitsch and colourful crystal gem-studded jewellery, it’s designed to amuse as much as they provoke. » (Adorn)

The curators of  The Box posed a unique challenge to a select group of artists. Take 5 readymade materials purchased at the dollar store & give value to something invaluable by creating 3 wearable pieces of jewelry. This challenge feeds into the contemporary jewelry artists’ interest in working with non-precious & alternative materials.
The group includes three American and three European artists. They are Bruce Metcalf, Demi Thomloudis, Timothy Veske-McMahon, Sofia Björkman, Réka Lörinz and Gisbert Stach.
Each artist received a box containing five standard size white envelopes, a small white towel, three white erasers, three CDs, and a can of Diet Coke. The materials were chosen because they are all white and echo a metaphorical blank page. These items can also be manipulated in multiple ways.

Take a HORSE, get a conversation piece …….

Take a HORSE, carefully cut it in pieces, and you get a neck-piece ….. no, a conversation-piece …..

for my part, I was fan of  THIS « Horses » ! :

Image de prévisualisation YouTube

Izabella Petrut -  "Blood on the ground" necklace – plastic toy, acrylic paint, copper, silk thread, varnish, 2013 Izabella Petrut -  « Blood on the ground » necklace – Innocent project – plastic toy, acrylic paint, copper, silk thread, varnish, 2013

The “Innocent” project gives me the chance to express an issue I am very much concerned with: the abuse against animals. The plastic toys are a way of representing an innocence that can only imply the horrible things that could / might have happened. I cut the animal toys the way butchers do, whilst others I use in twisted positions. After that I melt them, creating situations that I imagine they end up in. I paint them in lively colors that are not specific to those animals and this way the first impression of the audience is of a happy piece of jewelry and only then, after a closer examination, they truly see the animal and its suffering. Most of them are hand painted so that every brush stroke I make allows me to connect with that animal and feel it’s pain. The electroformed pieces represent the animals that live in cold metal cages, while the silk represents a natural material that stands for blood (red silk) and the darkness of the night (black silk). By creating more feminine pieces of jewelry I am trying to nurture those animals’ suffering.
1% of all money made from selling these pieces of jewelry will be donated to an animal shelter.
Materials: plastic toys, electroformed, alpaca, silver, paint, varnish, onyx, silk, pigments, copper, gold leaf. Izabella Petrut

EXPO ‘RULE THE WORLD’ – Friends of Carlotta, Zurich (CH) – 19 Juin-5 Sept. 2014

RULE THE WORLD, a juried exhibition at Friends of Carlotta in Zurich, Switzerland, curated by Bruna Hauert.

Welcome to our world of lived-out deficiencies and psychopaths!

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional ? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through ? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge ?

Rule the World

Despoten sind – bei aller Einfalt – ein sehr facettenreiches Trüppchen. Sie wollen nicht nur geliebt werden. Nein, sie wollen ehrlich und echt geliebt werden. Notfalls mit Gewalt.
Doch: Womit schmücken sich DiktatorInnen, Grössenwahnsinnige, Möchtegerns und Trauminöds? Womit präsentieren sie sich, damit ihre wahre Persönlichkeit im richtigen Licht erstrahlt? Womit zeigen GrosskotzInnen, TyrannInnen und zu Höherem Berufene, dass die Macht mit ihnen ist? Besitzt der Mächtige Objekte der Macht weil er mächtig ist? Oder ist er mächtig, weil er Objekte von magischer Macht besitzt?
Und: Was gönnt der Despot sich selbst in einer launigen Minute? Welcher Schmuck feiert mit ihm in der Stunde seines Triumphes? Womit verwöhnt er seine Untertanen, damit sie sich ihm leichter unter tun? Und wie kann ich ihm huldigen, damit er meine wahre Liebe und somit seinen wahren Wert erkennt?
Diese und andere Fragen zum Thema RULE THE WORLD beherrschen das Thema der nächsten jurierten Schmuckausstellung bei Friends of Carlotta.
Willkommen in der Welt der gelebten Defizite und der Psychopathen in Bestform!
Ich freue mich auf die Pracht der Macht und darauf, Sie an der Vernissage vom 19. Juni 2014 ab 17h begrüssen zu dürfen. Oder an jedem anderen Tag während der Ausstellung. Herzlich  Bruna Hauert

Despite their simple-mindedness, despots are a very diverse little group. All they want is
to be loved. Or rather, they want honest and real love. By force, if need be.
However, what do dictators, megalomaniacs, wannabes and the delusioned adorn themselves with? What do they use to cast their personalities in a positive light? What do fat cats, tyrants and those destined for greater things use to demonstrate that the force is with them? Do the powerful own objects of power because they are powerful? Or are they powerful because they own objects with magic powers?
What’s more: What do despots treat themselves to when they’re in a foul mood? Which pieces of jewellery are there to share the hours of victory with them? What do they spoil their subjects with in order to make them more eager to subdue themselves? And how must I worship these despots so that they recognise my pure love and therefore their true value?
These and other questions on how to RULE THE WORLD will be the dictating subject of the

The obscenely over sized piece did not hang like a pendant. It framed her face and seemed to cradle her body. It required a formal posture and bearing that teased out an air of decorum she was not always prone to pulling off. A hybridization of legume, embryo, and organ, the piece could not be more ripe. It‘s glossy surface, and speckled edges felt less like a thing made than a thing born. To the starving masses it was a promise of fertility, but to her enemies it was a reminder that she might gut them at amoment‘s notice

« I wanted to think of a jewel that affirm strength and power. in which the tyrant will exhibit their achievements represented by balls enclosed between cubes, like columns that recall the force of power.
A potential rosary made to be shown to confirm the ego and emphasize his power.
Object to show, but that becomes amulet and creates safety to the wearer »

« Jewelry to live every deficiency to the fullest extent. I choose to use a female and a male despot, creating two characters and two scenarios. They both compete for power, adoration, attention and they use the same weapons: the Penis, a symbol of power and dominance. My characters have a lot of insecurities for which they have to overcompensate with decoration and dubious behavior. The Penis becomes a symbol of desire and the despots see it as the object of their desire. The Penis becomes a cult object. Queen of all queens carries around a small wooden Penis pendant as a symbol of her dominance over men. It looks modest, unimportant and not too cared for. It is a trophy.
King of all kings carries around a wooden Penis to show he is the biggest, strongest and most precious of all. The piece is carved out of balsa wood and carefully finished. The piece is really easily imprinted if one doesn’t handle it with care, just like the King’s ego. The way it is worn, as a brooch on the shoulder, is disturbing for the wearer as well as for the viewer. »
