EXPO ‘Once More, With Love’ – studio2017, Waterloo, Sydney (AU) – 31 Juill.–18 Aout 2012

Once More, With Love

Picture

Many people are unaware of the darker side of jewellery production – the ethical issues, including the exploitation of workers, damage to the environment, resource depletion, as well as health issues for jewellers themselves. As makers of jewellery we acknowledge that our field interacts with complex notions of ‘want’ versus ‘need’. Hence we are aware of the importance of taking responsibility for how our individual practices may affect the needs and livelihoods of communities and environments globally.

  Picture

Once More, With Love is a not-for-profit travelling jewellery exhibition raising concepts of sustainability, recycling and ethical production. The project involves over 30kg of unwanted jewellery items donated by the Australian public which have been reworked ‘with love’ for this exhibition by a diverse selection of twenty one contemporary jewellers all with a proven interest in ethical making and recycled materials.  The works created for Once More, With Love propose a potential new life cycle for materials, while creating space for reflecting on their origins. The project is an opportunity for people to experience what creative minds can do with recycled materials in an everyday studio context.

The Once More, With Love project was started in 2010 by Suse Scholem, a contemporary jeweller from Melbourne who is passionate about sustainability and the power of art and community engagement. Suse was inspired by the activities of the American group Ethical Metalsmiths, who have significantly increased ethical/sustainability awareness in the American jewellery industry.  The Once More, With Love project grew from the success of a Melbourne-based jewellery recycling project organised by Suse.  As interest in the project grew, a significant number of jewellers became involved, and internationally respected jewellery artist Simon Cottrell, took on the role of co-curator. Along the way, the project has attracted significant patrons such as Dr Kevin Murray, Vice President of the World Craft Council, Asia Region, and Katie Scott Director of Gallery Funaki, Melbourne.

After Sydney, the exhibition will be heading to Canberra in October 2012 and then to Melbourne in early 2013.

In addition to the touring exhibition, the Once More, With Love project will involve events in each host city incorporating community discussions; as well as an ongoing website www.oncemorewithlove.com with information about issues relevant to the ethical sustainable implications of jewellery resources. The entire project was conceived with the aim of bringing the entire breadth of the jewellery community together to enter a dialogue around sustainable/ethical practice.  The project will be culminating in a weekend seminar in Melbourne Autumn 2013 which is still in planning

EXPO ‘Bend, stitch, carve’ – JamFactory, Adelaide (AU) – 1er Dec. 2011-14 Janv. 2012

BEND, STITCH, CARVE   

Kath Inglis, Tassia Joannides, Erin Keys

1 December-14 January – Collectors Space

JamFactory Metal Design Studio alumni Kath Inglis, Tassia Joannides, and Erin Keys exhibit together for the first time in « Bend, Stitch, Carve ». Showcasing their varying approaches to contemporary practice, this exhibtion highlights both material and process.

Erin Keys saw pierced mild steel& automotive paint cuffs 2010

Graduating in Jewellery and Object Design from Enmore Design Centre (SIT), Erin Keys established her practice at her studio in the Blue Mountains exhibiting nationally and working as a production assistant for Sydney based contemporary jewellers. In 2006 Erin left Australia to travel to Eastern Europe and lived in Bosnia Herzegovina until joining the Metal Design Studio JamFactory in 2008. She has exhibited nationally and most recently was selected to exhibit at Talente, International Trade Fair Munich and Preziosa Young in Florence Italy and Galeria Sztuki, Poland.
Drawing from ideas that are based in mark making, the cursive style of calligraphy Keys uses explores concepts of communication and language. The calligraphic pen strokes that begin on paper, transform into graphic metal objects, and in reclaiming ownership of the body, can be best understood as the repurposing of an idea into space. Using traditional jewellery making techniques her work captures a gestural energy that is suggestive of street ‘tags’. Abstracted from their origin these calligraphic forms become aesthetic artefacts of Keys’ urban landscape.

Tassia Joannides  “panel stitch bangle” using hand cut panels of bicycle inner tubes.

Tassia Joannides received her Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours from Monash University in Melbourne before moving to Adelaide to work in the Metal Studio at JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design. After four years living and working interstate Tassia returned to Melbourne to continue her practice. She regularly exhibits her jewellery and sculptures both nationally and overseas, recently travelling with her work to exhibitions in Japan, Germany and the USA.
Tassia sees her practice as an investigation of form and how it can interact sensitively with the body, sometimes even as an extension of it. Typically she works with flexible materials which aid this special interaction and inspire her to push the boundaries of three dimensional soft structures.

Kath Inglis jewelled bangle

 Raised in Darwin, Kath Inglis moved to Adelaide to study contemporary jewellery. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 2000, Inglis continued to develop her practice by working from a number of studios, including the renowned Gray Street Workshop and, as a Design Associate, at JamFactory Metal Design Studio.
In 2005, Inglis partnered with Naomi Schwartz, to establish soda and rhyme│jewellery design studio. A combination workshop, retail and gallery space, soda and rhyme features exhibitions of small scale objects and contemporary jewellery.
Inglis’ signature works are wearable pieces constructed from coloured and hand carved PVC. Inspired and intuitive patterns are cut into the surface of the plastic, transforming this seemingly ordinary material into something precious.
Inglis’ practice is multi-faceted and includes frequent exhibitions in national and international galleries, large scale collaborative public art projects and lecturing in jewellery at the University of South Australia.
