Planed by Yong-il Jeon, Professor at Kookmin University

Sooyeon Kim :      My work is selected for 'Ornament and Illusion - Spectrum of Contemporary Jewelry' show which will be held at National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art , Korea.    44 korean jewelers' over 200 jewelry will be presented.    The show opens on 12th of June until 28th of Feb, 2014.

Ornament and Illusion – Spectrum of contemporary jewelry is the first jewelry exhibition organized by the MMCA. As the first in-depth exploration of contemporary jewelry at one of Korea’s most representative art institutions, this is truly a landmark exhibition, featuring 44 contemporary jewelry artists who are active both domestically and internationally, and a total of about 270 works that estmplify the aforementioned major features of contemporary jewelry.
The exhibited works are categorized into four sections according to their main characteristics: « Materials: Endless Panorama« ; « Aesthetics: Beauty through Abstract Forms« ; « Narrative: Scenes of Expression and Allusion« ; « Process: Exploring Texhniques. » Each category includes works by eleven artists.
The « Materials » section presents works that demonstrate the expansion of materials at play in contemporary jewelry, revealing how today’s artists employ new and various materials to undermine conventions and produce wondrous visual configurations. This section also explores how the individual materials can be effectively combined to create the most exquisite compositions within the limited realm of jewelry.
The « Aesthetics » section includes works that attempt to embody pure or compressed aesthetics through abstract forms. The jewelry in this section is primarily made of metal, yet it displays an amazing thematic and formal diversity. Through their refined, dense forms, these stunning works create a subtle but enduring emmotional resonance with viewers.
The « Narrative » section offers works that highlight some experimental and conceptual approaches to contemporary jewelry, including pieces that examine jewelry’s limitations and identity, the artist’s own psycholigy, and a variety of social interests.
Finally, the « Process » section features works that epitomize the depth and mastery of porduction techniques, including both eastern and western traditional methods, such as the inlaid wire technique the « marriage of metal » technique, and new industrial techniques like RP and Todigital printing.

Today’s jewelry artists are using their craft to freely express their ideas and make important artistic statements. But even as contemporary jewelry has developed into an independent and autonomous field, it remains somewhat subsidiary in certain respects. Although jewelry has freed itself from some of the structural restrictions associated with other daily necessities and household items, it still has one remaining limitation: the human body. Jewelry must always function in harmony with the person wearing it. It is, by nature, an accessory, which implies a level of restriction and subordination. In addition, jewelry can never completely free itself from the techniques needed to process the materials. But this duality is the source of the true beauty of contemporary jewelry. Its functional and technical dependence may be seen as an obstacle or limitation, but it also provides endless opportunities for exploration and experimentation with the very identity of jewelry.
The radical movements within contemporary jewelry have recognized these dependencies as shackles, and have recognized these dependencies as shackles, and have naturally tried to escape from them. Inevitably, of course, such efforts are doomed to failure, because any attempt to cast off these shackles results in objects that have been transformed into something other than jewelry.
Contemporary jewelry, which seems primarily concerned with pursuing new forms and methods, still represents the continuation of a very long human tradition; yet remarkably, despite this longevity, this field, which produces such fascinating and dazzling objects, is still not very well known or understood. This exhibition aims to capture viewers’ imagination and ignite a fresh appreciation for these brilliand works of art, which materialize the inner mind of the artist while embodying the height of expert craftsmanship.

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.

Poly Nikolopoulou - Breaks - Brooch  SilverPoly NikolopoulouBrooch « Break » – silver, glass Vanmol – ‘under construction’ brooch – wood, concrete, cotton, paint, silver
« Karen Vanmol seeks in her work harmony to unite two worlds.
She is looking for a delicate balance between elements of the busy, modern city life and references to the silence and the slowness of nature. Her jewelry combine in a sensitive way clean organic shapes, and building materials with natural materials. Such as ground plans of a house look like farmland, a forests look like skyscrapers, in Karens work blurs the boundary between town and countryside. » BeautymanFoundations & Façades serie – ‘confession’  brooch  2011
(comme ces fenêtres à « rejas » de Séville, ou les moucharabiehs ….)
« …my recent work presents deteriorated architectural forms as objects of adornment. As a series of brooches, they reference jewelry’s historical representation of wealth, while their forms capture degraded fragments of local architecture. Folds and cuts in iron surfaces invite peering into their voids, where delicate patterns set in colored enamel offset the dark metal façade. Reminiscent of wallpaper, the patterned interior surfaces speak of a careful care and consideration put into adorning ones own personal space. Voyeuristic glimpses inside the pieces reveal worn surfaces suggestive of domestic interiors.   » (2010)

My work reflects my intimate world. Often I construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, boxes, nests, clusters, and cities that mirror my feelings, dreams, and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past, my family history, others to the people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries and territories. I am intrigued by the process in which walls simultaneously define and shut out space. I love the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete; cycles of growth and decay, eroded geological structures and abandoned buildings inspire me. I often make unorthodox combinations of materials to create tension and balance. Sometimes I use found objects: quiet mirrors of other intimate worlds.

EXPO ’2nd annual “Earrings Galore” group show’ – Heidi Lowe Gallery, US – 22 mai-6 juill. 2010

The second annual “Earrings Galore” group show at Heidi Lowe Gallery will showcase dozens of artists this year. From 6-9 p.m. Saturday, June 12, the gallery will host an opening reception in conjunction with Rehoboth Beach’s “Mosaic” art walk.
“Last year, ‘Earrings Galore’ was one of our most successful shows,” gallery owner Lowe said. “This year I am finding a new, fun, and unexpected way to display the earrings. The type of earring someone wears can say a lot about the person. So, I am displaying a lot of different styles to appeal to as many women as possible. The display will only enhance the earrings’ ‘cool factor’.”
The complete show will be on display until July 6 and features artists from across the United States as well as London. A partial display will be on display through September.

Soyeon Kim- Urbana, Ill – red earrings 2010 Glass and Silver

Ces bijoux me donnent une sensation de doux, de calme, de délicat, de policé….  pour tout dire, un cliché de « l’asiatique » ….  et sous cette douceur et ce calme -des formes, des matières, des couleurs- une ébullition sous-jacente -d’idées, de mises en forme, d’associations de matériaux- une révolution faite en douceur, révolution dans le sens où l’on a fait le TOUR de la question ….
