Not Too Precious explores inspirational work by 25 international jewellers using materials for their expressive potential rather than for their intrinsic value. Radical artist jewellers of the late 1960s and 70s vigorously rejected the idea that jewellery should be considered ‘precious’ simply because of the materials of which it was made. Today, the use of a huge variety of materials in jewellery is far more accepted, but economic pressures are putting that freedom of artistic expression at potential risk as people revert to traditionally ‘valuable’ materials for ‘safety’. Not Too Precious challenges preconceptions about ‘non-precious’ materials by encouraging us to consider ‘accrued value’: what talented makers bring to their work through their ideas and skill.
The selected artists, who currently work in the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, create innovative, skilfully-made jewellery that is insightful and culturally resonant. Sometimes poignant, sometimes witty, their work communicates at many levels. It is above all honest and – for want of a better term – not too precious.

La B.O. n’est pas à la fête avec la création contemporaine …..

difficile en effet de trouver quelque chose d’innovant ……….. Voir par exemple « The Earring show » à la Velvet da Vinci Gallery : de TRES belles choses, mais tout est, je dirais, « classique » : un pendant depuis une oreille percée ……..

 

Voici quelques « découvertes » sortant des sentiers battus ……

jolie découverte, à JOYA 2010 :

« My musical study and performance has paralleled my concentration in visual art throughout my life. This interest has prompted an investigation into the dialogue that exists between the sound that is perceived in one’s Imagination and the sound that one hears in reality. As our sense of hearing allows us to interact with external sound, I am pursuing a three dimensional exploration of the ear through chasing and repousse’ in precious metal. »
