"Monochromes"     The not so monotonous jewelry series     A solo exhibition by Shana Teugels
It’s obvious that the work of Shana Teugels revolves around questioning the conventions surrounding jewelry, but more so, she emphasizes the purpose of the classical jewel to an extreme, by adding more shine, more color and increasing volume as she goes.
Her shapes originate from experimenting with different types of materials, which she chooses for their cheap feel. These materials force her to glorify them as she links these experiments to an ongoing research about how the jewel can exalt itself and dance on the fine line between objet d’art and kitsch, the objet d’art being some form of rejected art or better, unclassifiable.
She digests her surroundings, her past and present, pink toys and nature, as well as her personal tastes, in short, the world she, herself, lives in, and out come these molded, shape shifting forms, vibrant of color and life. It’s by forcing her own ideal of beauty onto her audience that she generates a constant push and pull while observing her work. This creates a temporary uncomfortable, but not unpleasant, zone between the spectator/wearer and the work/jewel, itself.
An important aspect remains adding functionality to her creations, most of her objects are wearable, as this is an essential reference to jewelry design in general. Shana Teugels graduated in 2010 at Sint Lucas Antwerp, with a masters degree in jewelry design and did an internship at Galerie Marzee in Nijmegen, Holland. Her work was selected for Der Schmuck Salon at Meesterlijk (Amsterdam) and at Object (Rotterdam), for De Nieuwe Oogst, Galerie Design Vlaanderen (Brussels) as well as FAD at Joya Contemporary Jewelry Week (Barcelona) and as far as Tokyo, Japan with the Belgian Japanese Art Jewelry exhibition at Concept Jewelry Works. Her work was also featured in Current Obsession Magazine, #Youth Edition, a Belgian/Dutch magazine on contemporary jewelry.
"Monochromes" at Anvers 2014
Monochromes shows a series of necklaces, broches and objects, each in a single color. This is quite a daring step, as well as a less obvious one in Shana’s oeuvre, as monochromatism raises a certain doubtful attitude. Similarly to fashion and interior design, where monochromatism is swiftly associated with bad taste or affectation. It’s exactly this idea of taste and (un)accepted beauty, which she is trying to question, while combining less conventional materials, such as wool and plastic, with those that have a fixed value, like polypropyleen.

EXPO ‘TWEEX I’ – Vander A Gallery, Bruxelles (BE) – 26 Avril-25 Mai 2013

TWEEX 1

Opening: 25.04.2013  from 18:00 to 21:00

An overview of knowledge transfer around « designer jewellery »    With the participation of  La Cambre, Brussels  – IATA, Namur – St. Lucas University College of Art & Design Antwerp – and artist Félix Roulin.

TWEEX 1    26.04.2013 - 25.05.2013    Opening: 25.04.2013  from 18:00 to 21:00    An overview of knowledge transfer around "designer jewellery"    With the participation of  La Cambre, Brussels  IATA, Namur  St. Lucas University College of Art & Design Antwerp  and Félix Roulin.

For over a year, the young « vander A » gallery has been showing the work of visual artists and contemporary art jewellery creators. Now, in partnership with the non-profit workshop « Néon Atelier », run by Bernard François, it is to host a stunning display of the knowledge transmitted by masters of « designer jewellery » to their students in Belgian colleges and academies.
Three brand-new exhibitions will be held at the « vander A » gallery from 26 April to 25 May 2013, in September 2013 and in January 2014.
As a young, multidisciplinary genre, contemporary art jewellery is an art form in its own right, and it is undoubtedly part of our heritage.
Is the new generation of Belgian creative artists, or of foreign creators trained in Belgium, making a clear break with the know-how? Do they feel the need to venture beyond these skills, much as our master craftsmen once sought to break with the techniques of traditional jewellery, or do they just want to own them differently?
Probing the influence and role of knowledge in present-day creations, the « vander A » gallery presents the Belgian colleges and art academies frequented by artists who wish to specialise in the traditional and/or modern techniques used in contemporary jewellery.
At a time when young creators often train abroad and no longer really show any specifically national traits, we urgently need to improve our communication of our heritage, assert our undeniable mastery of this art and make known our current contribution to the international scene.
