This group of jewellery artists, in spite of divergent origins, is closely bound by where they graduated, live & work but especially by a shared approach to sourcing their creativity through observations & thoughts on the environment & phenomena outside themselves.
As suggested in the title of the exhibition, this group of jewellery artists, in spite of divergent origins, is closely associated by where they graduated, live and work but especially by a shared approach to sourcing their creativity through observations and thoughts on the environment and phenomena outside themselves.
Sawa Aso (Japan)
replicates objects that are worn on the body but are not jewellery, negating the function these objects had: binoculars, a camera, a bowtie etc. and giving them a new and unexpected function. They are constructed is thin steel sheet with every detail observed and transposed into a new medium with both integrity and humour. These identifiable yet estranged objects have a sculptural quality but never the less take on a natural place on the body as jewellery.
Sophie Baumgärtner (germany)
uses structures and support systems as in skeletons or in architecture. In her brooches metal wire constructions are covered with a transparent or translucent skin revealing an inner life and structure that can be organic or mechanical, reminiscent of primeval or extra terrestrial forms of insect life. Necklaces are constructed out of forged interconnected metal elements describing complex skeletons of real or imaginary creatures and create a quiet tinkling music when worn.
Makiko Mitsunari (japan)
develops jewellery based on the study of minerals, using angular crystalline forms or sections of crystals or stones. Contrasting colours and materials, sensual categories of warm and cold, moist and dry, transparent and opaque are brought into play with angular geometric interventions taking these pieces out of the natural and placing them in the artificial realm of the artefact.
Esther Suáres Ruis (colombia)
creates pendants based of 15th century Venetian trade beads, intrinsically inexpensive objects that were used by early European explorers in exchange for considerable wealth on foreign continents. Layered textile treads soaked in resin are carved to reveal an inner structure of colours, textures and patterns. These bead or baton pendants refer, in their subtle complexity, to the early trade beads and exude the fascination they had on their recipients who chose to elevate them to mythical objects.
