21 jewellery artists from New Zealand


Celebration day (artists present) 25.02 14.00 – 16.00

SPECIALS, a HandShake Alumni exhibition #42

SPECIALS, a HandShake Alumni exhibition features twenty one jewellery artists from New Zealand showing at the Einsäulensaal in the Munich Residenz Palace from 25 – 27 February 2016.
Peter Deckers has curated a special selection of works and projects from the HANDSHAKE programme. This one-off exhibition showcases the best work from the 12 national and international exhibitions over the last 5 years.

The HANDSHAKE Project is an art development programme for progressive ideas, making, presentations, feedback and networking for contemporary New Zealand jewellers.
The project began in February 2011, with emerging jewellers matched in mentoring roles with their chosen idols from all across the globe. Each mentee’s development was not only supported by their mentor but also through a series of workshops, masterclasses and most importantly, exhibitions in prestigious galleries in NZ and beyond.
The HandShake project will begin its third iteration (HandShake3) following the SPECIALS Alumni exhibition. Selected jewellers have been chosen from the first two projects to develop new bodies of work for a fresh series of international exhibitions, with a focus on collaboration in its broadest sense. The purpose of this HS3 programme is to allow the former mentee to become an independent artist, steering their own developments. The mentor now becomes a colleague and in most cases also a fellow art collaborator.

EXPO ‘Handshake 2′ – Toi Poneke Arts Centre, Wellington (NZ) -21 Nov.-13 Dec. 2014

Hand shake 2
The three-phase Handshake project embraces and showcases new pathways in art education by giving post-graduation jewellers the opportunity to be mentored by internationally established and well-respected artists of their choice. The culmination of its second phase, the exhibition Handshake 2, will present the work of a select group of thirteen mentees. Half way through a two year professional development programme, their practice, techniques and materials can be seen to have already been expanded and enriched.

EXPO ‘RENEE BEVAN New Work’ – The National, Christchurch (New Zealand) – 18 Mai-16 Juin 2012

“Sometimes what we wear is not to do with its aesthetic or monetary, material value. Sometimes the meaning goes deeper.  »

« New Work : Renee Bevan«   is Bevan’s first significant solo exhibition and features both photography and jewellery objects.
It is accompanied by a 24 page catalogue, with essay by curator and writer Karl Chitham: “These new works operate undercover, a set of tools and cues ready to aid us in an exploration of the aspects of life that we often fail to notice. The unexpected love token, a set of eyes watching from behind a picture, the remnants of unspoken thoughts or the subverted reworking of a childhood game. These devices help to highlight or freeze-frame a moment in time. The new works suggest the wonder of discovery and an investigation of the minutiae of experiences we are surrounded by every day.

« There is a pattern that slowly declares itself through the collective results of Bevan’s investigations. It is like a stream of consciousness that requires the odd splicing together of scenes in order to maintain a coherency for those outside of her head. It is a way of viewing the world that has a unique and sometimes childlike sense of uncomplicated poeticism. There is an honesty about these new works. They are simple gestures that respond to Bevan’s innermost sensibilities as opposed to societal or financial pressures:
“Sometimes what we wear is not to do with its aesthetic or monetary, material value – Sometimes the meaning goes deeper – I want to explore this in my work – make things that… have a deeper value” (Renee Bevan). »
