National Ornamental Metal Museum Tributaries: Susie Ganch  December 5, 2014 -- March 1, 2015
Driven by the impulse to “create what I cannot see,” Susie Ganch strips familiar forms down to their underlying molecular structure, suspending precious stones and enameled copper in intricate webs of silver and steel. Her jewelry and sculpture has been featured in Metalsmith magazine and in numerous national and international exhibitions. She is currently an Associate Professor and Head of the Metals Program at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.

This comprehensive exhibition ties together the multifaceted career and work of Susie Ganch, Associate Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and Director of Radical Jewelry Makeover. An accomplished jeweler and sculptor, Ganch has staked a unique career with trifold contributions to the field of Craft. As a university educator, she trains the next generation of jewelers and metalsmiths; as a practicing artist, she pushes the boundaries of jewelry and sculpture through material, design, and function; as a director of the Radical Jewelry Makeover project, she creates community events that encourage our consideration of the social and environmental impacts of mining and jewelry production through the creation of innovative jewelry made from recycled sources.Susie Ganch: TIED includes two galleries of Ganch’s independent work and one gallery devoted to her collaborative project, Radical Jewelry Makeover (RJM).  This RJM installation includes work by 22 well-known jewelers from across the United States who participated in previous RJM events as well as jewelry made by regional RJM artists and local VCU students.As an outreach program of the nonprofit Ethical Metalsmiths, Radical Jewelry Makeover (RJM) is an innovative community-mining project that raises awareness of the connection between mining, metalsmithing, activism, collaboration and art. The project is both performance and event, linking recycling, reuse and collaborative work sessions with the creation of unique, innovative, handmade jewelry. To learn more about RJM and the artists involved in this exhibition, visit: radicaljewelrymakeover.org and susieganch.com.

« …I recently began using pre enameled sheet steel, forming it, soldering it, and creating simple forms that reveal the life cycle of the resulting piece. They are intentionally raw, their surfaces containing hundreds, thousands of little cracks.  Solder is left on the surface, flux will come out over time, and because the steel is distressed (by forming), it will continue to shed bits of enamel.  They will age and evolve, gaining rust losing enamel while the diamonds and rubies on the surfaces will remain the same. I am considering my own evolution and what it means to transition into the next period of my life.  In a culture that values youth as the highest form of beauty in an industry (jewelry) motivated by beautification, these pieces reflect back the changes I see in my mirror every morning.  This jewelry will eventually disintegrate leaving some lonely diamonds and rubies behind. (In my imagination, they are the true loser in the story). Optimistically, I want this work to “die” making room for what will come next.  Part of my responsibility as an artist is to think of future generations and what they might need in order to make room for what jewelers sometime down the road will want to make… »

Jewelry in a New Iron Age by 60 International Artists

Velvet da Vinci San Francisco exhibition
March 1 – April 14, 2013
Artists’ reception Friday, March 1, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m.

FERROUS, an exhibition of jewelry using iron, steel, and steel alloys. Although the use of iron dates back more than two thousand years, this humble material is more commonly used for agriculture and industrial purposes than adornment. A significant exception is the Berlin Iron Jewelry of the early 19th century. The Prussian Royal family funded the uprising against Napoleon by encouraging wealthy citizens to exchange their precious gold and silver for intricately fabricated iron jewelry
.Intricacy is just one aspect the 60 artists of FERROUS explore with this versatile material. Known for its strength and lightness, the steel and iron jewelry of FERROUS is both rusty and shiny, sheet and wire, bejeweled and modest. The exhibition will take place simultaneously at Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco and as a virtual exhibition at crafthaus online. In May FERROUS will travel to 18Karat Gallery in Toronto, Canada as part of The Society of North American Goldsmith’s annual conference.

EXPO ‘UNEXPECTED PLEASURES’ – NGV International, Melbourne (AU) – 20 Avril-26 Aout 2012

UNEXPECTED PLEASURES

The Art and Design of Contemporary Jewellery

A Design Museum, London touring exhibition
at NGV (National Gallery of Victoria)

unexpected-pleasures-0.jpg

Unexpected Pleasures looks at what we mean by jewellery from a number of different perspectives.  Taking as its starting point the radical experiments of the Contemporary Jewellery Movement that challenged a conventional understanding of the language of personal adornment, and looking instead at the essential meanings of jewellery, the exhibition brings together important work from around the world, and looks at it from the point of view of the wearer as well as the maker. Contemporary  Jewellery in this sense is at the intersection of art and design.

Curated by Dr. Susan Cohn for the Design Museum, London with exhibition design by Ab Rogers Design and graphics by Barnbrook.

« UNEXPECTED Pleasures, an exhibition of the world’s ugliest, loveliest, most intriguing contemporary jewellery, opened at the National Gallery of Victoria International yesterday.
 »Everything here is designed to be worn, » said guest curator and jewellery designer Susan Cohn.
Visitors took that as a challenge, moving through 180 dimly lit curiosities by the world’s most radical designers, trying to imagine what it would be like to wear a necklace of glass and ceramic dildos. Or a tubular  »veil » collar like a pearly plastic version of Ned Kelly’s helmet. Or a cluster of rusted bolts and nails on a silver  »Screw Ring ».
 »After procreation and survival, our next instinct as humans is adornment, » Cohn said when asked,  »Why? »
 »Adornment is about attracting a mate, which in turn, is about procreation and survival. »
Some humans, however, obviously require more complex, intellectual adornments than others.  »Yes, some wearers will want something that speaks that way for them, » Cohn said. Among the exhibits was a vast choice of such expression, from the minimalist exquisitry of a grey sunray-pleated yoke, to a clump of small pale  »tumours », photographed bursting through a model’s frock. The latter was in a category of radical ideas.
NGV director Gerard Vaughan said the exhibition offered  »a fresh view of the many meanings associated with jewellery ».
The visiting director of London’s Design Museum, Deyan Sudjic, said it was the result of a  »long, drawn-out, cerebral process », and that is precisely how it felt.
Unexpected Pleasures: The Art and Design of Contemporary Jewellery, is a Design Museum, London, exhibition funded by the Joan and Peter Clemenger Trust.
It is free and runs until August 26, when it will travel to London. (Daily Life.com.au)

Art and design come together through its exploration of the radical experiments of contemporary jewelers who have pushed the boundaries. Navigate your way through the labyrinth of themes; Worn Out (celebrating the experience of wearing jewellery), Linking Links (looks at the way in which narratives are expressed through sub-themes and creative systems) and A Fine Line (offers insight into the origins of contemporary jewellery today) in an exhibition that is not to be missed.

EXPO ‘Susie Ganch’, Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Francisco (US) – 11 aout-17 Sept. 2010

 » Fascinated by the molecular makeup of objects, Susie Ganch‘s work is made up of multiple interconnected units. Ganch uses traditional materials of silver, steel, and copper, and applies color to her work with sugar-fired enamel. Each interdependent element, or « molecule, » vibrates with movement and « offers us the opportunity see and feel what we are made of. »
Susie Ganch attended California College of the Arts in Oakland, California, and lived in California until 2004, when she began teaching at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. A 2007 recipient of the Virginia Commonwealth University Faculty Research Grant, her work has been featured in Metalsmith, the Style Weekly Fashion Quarterly, and San Francisco Downtown Magazine. Susie Ganch’s work is included in the collections of the Asheville Art Museum in Asheville, North Carolina, and John Crutchfield and Artemis Gallery in Richmond, Virginia . »

« I am driven by the idea that the web of life is an inter-connected system. From molecules to atoms everything is structurally made of the same « stuff ». I construct forms that are comprised of multiple interdependent parts. In the piece Rest, the suspension system will collapse when out of balance and when each steel cable is not properly engaged. The « molecules », rings, and collected bits offer us the opportunity see and feel what we are made of. A bracelet of « molecules » sliding over the hand is a glimpse into what that might actually feel like, and a necklace of rubies extending off the neck suggests the view an electron has as it travels through the air and into a body. « (Susie Ganch)

Antria Prasinou (GR) – ‘Magic Wheel’ – Brooch – Silver, feathers 2009

 

c’est drôle, la plume n’a pas l’air d’avoir bonne presse dans le monde du bijou moderne. Elle bat de l’aile, si je puis me permettre ….. Si elle apparait, c’est discrètement (boucles d’oreilles, éventuellement bagues), ou alors pour évoquer de suite un coté « cul-cul », monde de filles, houpette, boa et tra-la-la ….

En 2005, le directeur artistique de chez Lemarié, le célèbre (et unique maintenant) plumassier de la place de Paris, a créé une ligne de bijoux utilisant les plumes … il était bien placé pour savoir de quoi il en retournait ! plumes de coq taillées et acérées donnaient des bagues à la présence légère mais à forte personnalité … hélas, plus rien de neuf à l’horizon depuis ….

La plume, sa légéreté, son mouvement, sont évoqués (collier de Kayo Saito,broche d’Isabell Schaupp, bracelet de Joanne Cox, collier de Louise Nippierd ou de Simone Svoboda, jusqu’au collier de virginie BOIS qui rappelle les parures en plumes des Indiens d’Amérique du sud …), mais elle n’est pas franchement utilisée …. en tout cas, je ne la vois pas souvent ! C’est vrai aussi que ça a été tellement galvaudé ! moi, dès que je vois une plume de paon qui pendouille, je m’enfuis en courant !
« C’est au printemps dernier que la Maison Lemarié, réputée pour son savoir-faire de plumassier auprès des grands noms de la mode et de la couture, a lancé sa première ligne de bijoux. Pour sa deuxième saison, la marque, sous l’impulsion de son designer Eric-Charles Donatien, injecte une nouvelle dose de détails décalés et booste son image « bon chic ». Des couleurs qui claquent (fuchsia, rouge carmin, bleu pétrole), des plumes de paon taillées comme des écailles, des plumes de coq affûtées comme des lames, des effets plumeau, des éclairs argentés… Plus que du caractère, ces bijoux ont un look, une «gueule». » (nov 2006, Madame Figaro)

« Des plumes aux noms « exotiques », mais dont l’origine est parfois plus prosaïque. Comme le «marabout» qui se trouve être en fait du duvet de dinde… parce que «duvet de dinde, ça évoque plutôt la couette ou l’oreiller, ce n’est pas très ‘glamour’», confie Eric-Charles Donatien. Mais il y a aussi une autre explication : c’est que le commerce la plume – comme celui des peaux et fourrures – est régi par la Convention de Washington, qui pour résumer, le restreint aux oiseaux dont on mange la chair, c’est-à-dire principalement pour, la maison Lemarié, coqs, oies, faisans et autruches. Les plumes d’autruche proviennent d’Afrique du Sud et de pays d’Amérique du sud, comme celles de nandous, beaucoup de plumes viennent également d’Asie. Des provenances qui nécessitent une grande vigilance. «On jongle  avec ce qu’on trouve sur le marché, et le stock de la maison», conclut Eric Charles-Donatien. …. chez Lemarié, on s’efforce de «casser certaines idées reçues sur la plume», notamment celle qui l’associe systématiquement au spectacle sexy. Avec la ligne de bijoux, qu’il a créée depuis 2005, Eric Charles-Donatien, a voulu que par le biais «d’ un travail graphique et technique inattendu (…) la plume  devienne objet de design».  Une collection  réalisée avec l’orfèvre Goossens, qui fait partie, avec Lemarié, des sept ateliers d’art rachetés à partir du milieu des années 1990 par Chanel : le parurier Desrues, le chapelier Michel, le brodeur Lesage, le bottier Massaro et l’atelier de création de fleurs artificielles Guillet. Une façon de faire vivre ces métiers devenus rares et de moins en moins enseignés. Chaque atelier continue à travailler pour d’autres maisons de couture et a été incité à développer des activités complémentaires, comme l’école de broderie de Lesage ou les collections de bijoux de Lemarié. » (Danielle Birck-Article publié le 25/02/2008)
