EXPO ‘Staring : in HINDSIGHT’ – Die Neue Sammlung (Danner-Rotunde), Munich (DE) – 14-20 Mars 2014

SCHMUCK 2014 – Munich – 12-18 Mars 2014

Staring : in HINDSIGHT / SUNY NP METAL

Vernissage 14 Mars, 19 Uhr

STARING: The State University of New York at New Paltz

THE METAL PROGRAM AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT NEW PALTZ IN COOPERATION WITH DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG – THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGN MUSEUM MUNICH

Designed in response to the physical space that houses the exhibition, in Staring is an exercise in looking, finding, seeing and knowing.
This gallery, informally referred to as ‘under the stairs’, is an interstitial space – formed by the galleries that surround it. It is a negative of a positive, the leftover from a functional form. It lies in-between, forming the way one considers what lies on the other side of the concrete divide, what is revealed and what is hidden. As the risers and runners of multiple staircases surround the viewer, form becomes rhythmic, linear texture, closing in underfoot and overhead. In this space one is simultaneously astonished, disoriented, and mystified. While not originally conceived as an exhibition space, through imaginative thinking it became so.
As a marginal space it is not confined by traditional boundaries or conceptions. This notion of working the margin is akin to the creative strategies taught at New Paltz. Students are expected to engage the traditions of jewelry and hollowware, working within the field’s “architecture”, but not to mimic it; in dialogue through making they question function, value, and relevance to our somatic, conceptual and incorporeal experience. We look backward and forward at the same time, challenging and promoting the practice of making.
Provoked by the space itself, we ask the viewer to consider what it means to be ‘under the stairs’. In a domestic setting it is a space to keep things that are only used occasionally, or perhaps forgotten. It is a psychic space, the space of the Odradek, a space where fear of the unknown is manifested. Within this space discoveries are made, surprises can be found, and occasionally we lose even ourselves.

DIE NEUE SAMMLUNG

Talk on 16 March, 11 Uhr : Pravu Mazumdar: Understanding Surfaces. On Jewellery and Identity.
Pinakothek der Moderne. www.die-neue-sammlung.de

Human surfaces are hybrid objects involving biological and cultural elements like dress, makeup, jewellery, gait, skin, posture, voice. Contemporary societies manifest not only surfaces of products, but also human surfaces functioning as ‘packaging’ and emitting discourses on interiority that place humans within limits and define their individuality.
However, the surfaces are not only readable. They are also produced on a daily basis, not only by the individuals themselves or the global beauty industry at large, but also a whole political machinery of identity, gleaning certain constant, measurable and recognisable traits of individuality from the surface discourses, documenting them in passports and identity cards and locking in modern individuals within the shell of their identity. Modern jewellery – in its contemporary, critical manifestations and its inherent tendency of breaching tradition – can break open the shell of identity and involve individuals in an open play of enhancement and change of masks. It can indeed be understood as a means of counteracting the pressure towards identity in daily life in modern societies.
Such ideas will be presented with examples and images from the area of contemporary jewellery art.

Sienna Gallery debuted the project last April at SOFA NY where we installed a photobooth. This format provided visitors with an experience outside of the typical museum-like presentation of jewelry and objects at SOFA. We encouraged people to have fun interacting with our jewelry. Viewers instantly became wearers, modeling our jewelry for a printed souvenir photo-strip. And in some sense the wearer became a « collector » and jewelry became « collected » through physical printed image and solidified through social media.

EXPO ’10-10-2011′ – Galerie Noel Guyomarch, Montréal (CA) – 21 Avril-29 Mai 2011

Expostion organisée par Sarah Abramson, réunissant 10 œuvres de 10 artistes américains qui sont diplômés de New Paltz, l’université de l’État de New York

EXPO '10-10-2011' - Galerie Noel Guyomarch, Montréal (CA) - 21 Avril-29 Mai 2011 dans Canada (CA) image12871

Du  21 avril au 29 mai 2011, la Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h vous propose une exposition organisée par Sarah Abramson, artiste américaine représentée par la galerie depuis plusieurs années.  Par cet événement, elle nous présente le résultat des œuvres créées par 10 artistes américains soumis à des paramètres qu’elle leurs avait auparavant imposés.

A propos de cette exposition, Sarah Abramson écrit :
« Initiée par un exercice donné à des étudiants à l’université de l’État de New York – New Paltz, option métal, qui consistait à créer un ensemble de pièces cohérent et concis en un temps limité, cette exposition rassemble les créations de 10 artistes. Anciens diplômés de cette université, ils ont tous entamé une carrière dans ce domaine, et ont développé un langage propre.
 En acceptant de participer, ils se sont prêtés à cet exercice avec enthousiasme. Au-delà des œuvres à créer, ils ont dû remettre en question leur processus de création, concilier des prises de conscience et de décision, porter un choix et explorer des matériaux, faire des croquis et réaliser les œuvres. Le résultat est parfois brut, mais réfléchis. Dans ce cadre aux paramètres restreints, leur collection ainsi réalisée reflète une approche rafraîchissante et éloignée de leur univers habituel de création. Ils ont retrouvés un exercice stimulant et générateur de nouvelles idées.
Pendentifs en bois, papier ou bambou, bagues en émail, broches en argent et billets de  banque, colliers inspirés de clôtures de jardin côtoient des pièces d’orfèvrerie ou de coutellerie originales. La diversité des propositions permet une réflexion nouvelle sur les procédés de créations.«
