COUP de COEUR …. BLACK is BLACK with Tiina Rajakallio

Tiina Rajakallio
Finnish artist Tiina Rajakallio in Rome the 10th of may 2017, for the first time for a solo exhibition of contemporary jewelry at myday-byday space in Via Luca della Robbia 76, Testaccio. Gallery hours 10 30/19 30.
myday-byday ‎ Tiina Rajakallio in Rome on 10 may 2017
 » I am thinking about the present-day Western people and their connection with nature.
How natural the contact is? Is it romanticized, magical, run by economical efficiency or totally gone? Are we still part of the nature? And what is the relationship between spirituality and nature contact?
We have always been dependent on nature that is providing us the essentials of life. But is the aim for a never-ending growth and progress made us think everything here is only for us? «  Tiina Rajakallio
Myday-byday interview to Tiina Rajakallio:
1) Where is your inspiration coming from ?
Widely speaking I’m interested in everyday life of a contemporary Western people. I’m working with questions that intrigues or troubles me, things I would like to have a conversation about. And of course there is a lot of curiosity towards the body, communication and a piece of jewellery involved.
2) What are you trying to communicate in particular with your artwork?
It depends. At the moment I would like people to think about their own relationship with nature but also the common contact we have with it. How natural the contact is? Is it romanticized, magical, run by economical efficiency or totally gone? Are we still part of the nature? And what is the relationship between spirituality and nature contact? We have always been dependent on nature that is providing us the essentials of life. But is the aim for a never-ending growth and progress made us think everything here is only for us? I would like my work raises thoughts, I’m not to judge anyone, it would be hypocrite to do that.
3) Which material you prefer to use and why ?
It depends of the theme of the work. In an ideal situation the material tells the same story and even adds something to it. At the moment I use a lot of wood and combine it for example with recycled rubber. An old inner tube of tractor or bicycle, even it may be a bit old-fashioned as an object, it tells about our culture and our creative ability to utilize our surrounding. The material is protective, elastic and doesn’t decay really. Even there is some natural rubber in the mixture, it reminds many people about oil.
4) How much value do you give to researching material for your creations?
Of course there is some material research needed. But if it means new technical solutions and extraordinary inventions my works are rather simple in that sense.
 
5) Is it more important for you the process, or the final artwork itself?
Both are important. I love that hands-in investigation part of a work. But sooner or later there is a deadline waiting and you just need to start to make decisions. However every step is leading me further and to me ready pieces are also steps of the same process. The difference is many times the ready pieces are the only steps others will see.
 
6) Is there an artist you prefer and why ?
I admire many artists. Some because of their clever and brave ideas, some because of theis technical skills or expression, honesty and dedication.
 
7) Have you ever thought to collaborate with other artists , or you like to work on your own?
I love working on my own, but time to time it would be interesting to try to share the process with someone else. I have collaborated with other jewellery artists but it would be really interesting to do that with artists from another field. 8) Where do you feel you are at with this last collection?
It is a one step further from the series I called White Moments. I’m like walking around the same source inspired by the different aspects of it. I seem to go back and forth sometimes when there are so many sides to be discovered.

9) What have you discovered of yourself, are you sattisfied ?
I think I learned more about my own ability to endure stress, priorities and time managemenent and that one can’t cope totally alone.

10) Two words to describe your last artwork collection.
Still together?

EXPO ‘Ashes and Diamonds’ – Galleria Pihatto, Lappeenranta (Finland) – 31 Oct.-25 Nov. 2012

Ashes and Diamonds
Contemporary jewellery from Finland

EXPO 'Ashes and Diamonds' - Galleria Pihatto, Lappeenranta (Finland) - 31 Oct.-25 Nov. 2012 dans Anna RIKKINEN (FI) Ashes_Diamonds

Ashes and Diamonds is a curated contemporary jewellery exhibition, that’s part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012- program. Contemporary jewellery, which is rarely showcased in Finland, is a marginal and groundbreaking form of art. 18 artists and 36 works in total were chosen for the exhibition, which is curated by Päivi Ruutiainen (who’s currently preparing her doctorate on contemporary jewellery)  in cooperation with HUMAK and The Jewellery Art Association in Finland.
The mission of the exhibition is to break both the preconceptions about jewellery as an art form as well as the limits of the art world. The project will also give an opportunity for finnish jewellery artists to showcase their art and increase public knowledge of contemporary jewellery.

After Platina, the exhibition can be seen at :
Lahti, Finland: Muotohuoltamo, 3.10.2012 – 24.10.2012
Lappeenranta, Finland: Pappilan Pihatto, 31.10.2012 – 25.11.2012

ASHES AND DIAMONDS

Contemporary jewellery from Finland

contemporary jewellery exhibition created as part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 program. The exhibition will tour in Finland and other Nordic countries in the fall of 2012 :

*Stockholm, Sweden: Galleria Platina 31.8.2012 – 22.9.2012

This project is done in cooperation with HUMAK University of Applied Sciences, Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, and The Jewellery Art Association, and is curated by Päivi Ruutiainen (AM)

 

Ashes and Diamonds is an exhibition that displays the works of 18 Finnish artists representing different areas of contemporary jewellery art and design.

The exhibition gives a comprehensive overview of the different techniques and materials used in contemporary jewellery design today, as well as offering insight into the meanings a piece of jewellery can carry. Besides the traditional materials of precious stones and metals, modern jewellery design also makes use of gypsum, coal, organic raw materials, recycled materials, and other materials traditionally considered to be plain.

The Ashes and Diamonds exhibition will be accompanied by workshops, pop-up shops and HomeShopping events, where invited guests get to hear the artists themselves talk about their works.

Ashes and Diamonds will run until 16 June at the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 Studio gallery.

EXPO ‘Un peu de terre sur la peau’ – Musée des Arts Deco, Paris (FR) – 15 Mars-19 Aout 2012

Un peu de terre sur la peau

Poursuivant une programmation prospective dans le domaine de la céramique contemporaine, après « Petits bouleversements au centre de la Table » en 2008 et « Circuit Céramique » en 2010, les Arts Décoratifs, en partenariat avec la Fondation d’entreprise Bernardaud, ont souhaité s’intéresser à l’utilisation que font certains artistes bijoutiers du matériau céramique. L’exposition « Un peu de terre sur la peau » a été conçue à partir d’œuvres très récentes, qui interrogent les codes ancestraux du bijou pour les projeter dans des perspectives nouvelles. Les 18 jeunes créateurs sélectionnés font souffler un vent de transgression sur ce domaine encore très attaché aux traditions. D’origine française, suisse, allemande, finlandaise, hollandaise, suédoise ou taiwanaise, ils proposent en 140 pièces marquantes leur vision iconoclaste du corps et de la parure.

EXPO 'Un peu de terre sur la peau' - Musée des Arts Deco, Paris (FR) - 15 Mars-19 Aout 2012 dans Andi GUT (CH) fa33b4aaeed4e6f7244c355ee9ec0a6c

Unlike traditional jewellery, the traditional craft of the goldsmith, since the 1970s contemporary jewellery has become a field of experimentation at the frontiers of art, design and the artistic crafts. In this exhibition, eighteen French, Swiss, German, Finnish, Swedish and Taiwanese, artists are proposing a new and personal vision in their work. Although some pieces were conceived in reference to the history of jewellery, they can be made with the most diverse materials, using every possible assemblage process, in function of the techniques, symbols and the culture during a given period. This exhibition, conceived by the Fondation Bernardaud, is being shown in the museum’s Contemporary Space.
The exhibition is curated by Monika Brugger.

A la différence du bijou classique – conçu comme un art appliqué, selon des techniques d’orfèvre et avec des matériaux généralement précieux – un « nouveau bijou » a émergé depuis les années 1970, caractérisé par son hybridité et conçu comme un lieu d’expérimentation, installé aux frontières de l’art et du design. Ce ne sont plus seulement les questions liées au coût des matériaux et au statut social qui sont posées par ces nouveaux artistes bijoutiers, mais plutôt le positionnement culturel du bijou en tant qu’oeuvre d’art, en relation au corps. Le bijou est redéfini par eux comme une pratique pleinement intégrée aux arts plastiques.
Depuis toujours, le bijou a joué un rôle d’indicateur social, traduisant une appartenance à un groupe et intégrant l’homme dans la société, mais pouvant marquer également une volonté de différenciation, de contestation de l’ordre établi. Parure intime donc « singulière », le bijou parle de notre corps, des liens qu’il tisse avec autrui et avec l’environnement. Les bijoux n’ont pas toujours été fabriqués en or, en argent ou en pierres précieuses. Ils peuvent également être conçus avec des matériaux les plus divers et grâce à tous les assemblages possibles, en fonction des techniques, des symboles et de la culture en vigueur à une époque donnée. Depuis la réalisation de bagues sigillaires en faïence dans l’Égypte ancienne, ou d’ersatz en terre cuite dorée imitant l’or dans la Grèce et la Rome antique, la céramique a été abandonnée et oubliée pendant des siècles dans le domaine du bijou. C’est en 1773, en Angleterre, que son emploi resurgit lorsque Joshiah Wedgwood inventa une pâte de grès fin constituée de différentes strates colorées qui imitait parfaitement le jaspe, pour des bijoux aux motifs néoclassiques ou des sujets romantiques en camées. Dans l’époque contemporaine, c’est au créateur hollandais Peter Hoogeboom que l’on doit d’avoir réconcilié de la façon la plus novatrice le grès ou la porcelaine avec le bijou, à partir de 1994. A cette réapparition remarquée, fait suite l’excellente initiative de l’European Keramiek Work Centre (EKWC), situé à ‘s-Hertogenbosch aux Pays-Bas, qui a proposé à de nombreux orfèvres contemporains des résidences de trois mois, leur permettant de travailler toutes les possibilités de mise en forme de la céramique dans le domaine du bijou.
Parmi les différents matériaux céramiques disponibles, c’est la porcelaine qui a le plus souvent aujourd’hui la faveur des artistes du bijou. Qu’elle soit utilisée par modelage ou moulage, seule ou en association avec le métal, le bois ou la pierre, la porcelaine peut changer d’apparence, de couleur et de surface. Lisse et pure, à la fois fragile et de grande résistance, elle épouse toutes les formes recherchées à condition d’en maîtriser les techniques et les contraintes, particulièrement celle liée à sa forte rétraction lors de la cuisson. Encore largement liée dans notre imaginaire aux arts de la table ou à la froideur technologique du matériel scientifique, la porcelaine peut aussi devenir un objet de désir, un déclencheur de sensations visuelles et physiques, lorsqu’elle est transformée en bijoux, en s’adaptant parfaitement aux exigences conceptuelles et poétiques des créateurs d’aujourd’hui. La preuve en est faite avec un peu de terre sur la peau…
Le projet Un peu de terre sur la peau… a été initié par la Fondation d’entreprise Bernardaud : l’exposition a été présentée à Limoges du 16 juin au 16 octobre 2010, puis a voyagé au Museum of Arts and Design à New York (USA), du 15 mars au 4 septembre 2011) et au New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum à Taipei (Taïwan), du 30 décembre 2011 au 5 février 2012.

EXPO ‘UltraMarine’ – Tallinn, Estonia – 7 Oct.-6 Nov. 2011

UltraMarine as a word derivates from Latin ultra + marinus and means ’over the sea’ or ’beyond the sea’.
Ultramarine is a fiery blue pigment extracted from lapis lazuli, one of the oldest precious stones used in jewellery for thousands of years. Lapis lazuli or lazurite was imported to Europe from Middle Asia by sea via Venice, hence the name ’beyond the sea’.
Ultramarine was a rare and valuable colorant, as expensive as gold leaf because of its remote origin and complex production process. Medieval masters often used that exotic pigment for the uppermost colour layer only. Sometimes just the robes of Virgin Mary and li’l Jesus were painted using the priceless blue.
UltraMarine is a solo sailor’s route across the sea, an artist’s dialogue with a material that takes place while she works at her desk. One can spy a knowing smile on the countenance of she who has arrived at her destination – for the joy of surpassing oneself is the greatest pleasure of all. A co-conspirator knows the feeling well. The sea unites; the land divides. UltraMarine is bluer than the sea.

«Cheveu un bijou !!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur

«!Tranchez-lui la tête!!! Cheveu un bijou!!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur, dans Alice …

mais … faut pas se faire de cheveux dans la vie !! ici, on est à un poil du bijou ….. si ce ne sont pas des bijoux au poil !! ;-)

Au-delà du dégoût que peut susciter l’emploi d’un tel matériau (à la « grande époque » du bijou en cheveux, à l’époque Victorienne, mode lancée par la très romantique Reine Victoria, cet engouement eu un grand succès dans les pays anglo-saxons mais suscita du dégoût et un certain rejet en France et dans le reste de l’Europe), ce n’est pas étonnant, à mon sens, qu’il suscite tant d’attrait parmi la jeune génération de bijoutiers : à force d’interroger le rapport du bijou au corps, le corps s’incorpore petit à petit au bijou lui-même.

« Contemporary art is getting hairy Long and silky; short and curly. Blond, brunette, red or grey. It’s hair and it has an important part in our perceptions of ourselves. It defines gender and visual identity, and is playing an important role lately in art — in jewelry, drawings or in mixed media pieces. Hair has long had a role in the work of artists and artisans. In the Victorian era, creating jewelry from hair became almost as popular as knitting or crocheting.  By using one’s own hair or that of a beloved family member women were able to design bracelets, chains, rings and earrings. Apart from jewelry, mourners would weave hair into decorative, memorial wall hangings. By the early 1900s using hair fell out of fashion. During the past 15 years, however, there’s been a fascination among contemporary artists using skin, nail clippings, urine and hair to create various forms of art. Fascinated with Victorian hair jewelry, artist and jewelry designer Melanie Bilenker has revived the art form. Like the Victorians who kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love, renders the « quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments » from her own tresses. Bilenker observes various daily activities such as cleaning, bathing, dressing, resting or eating. She chronicles the private moments by setting the camera’s timer and goes about her business which can be anything such as eating chocolate, writing a note or enjoying a Saturday morning breakfast. Once she has the photographed images, Bilenker creates tracings of the forms within ghem with thousands of tiny strands of her own hair – which are eventually fixed in resin.  She meticulously layers several different drawings to give the appearance of depth, one as foreground, another as background.  The entire process takes the course of about a week of laying hairs, mixing resin, and then allowing it to cure.  Says Bilenker, « Once the hairs are set as line drawings within resin, I shape, smooth and polish the exterior.  I then fabricate the jewelry findings and set them.  The piece is then complete. »" (Courtesy Melanie Bilenker and Sienna Gallery)

« Puisant dans la tradition des bijoux en cheveux, matériau depuis longtemps collecté dans des foires et marchés ou dans l’intimité des familles pour devenir parure, Ana Goalabré se joue de cet usage en coupant une de ses mèches et en y taillant une bague qu’elle envoie à un homme accompagnée de la missive «J’aimerais tant passer mes doigts dans tes cheveux». Cette phrase, appel érotique d’un corps d’artiste, devient le titre d’une série déclinant divers contenus aimants et sensuels, traditionnellement gardés jusqu’alors implicites au nom d’une morale et d’une bienséance rigoureuse et qui tout à coup semblent avoir gagné le droit de dire clairement le désir, qu’il s’agisse de celui d’une mère, d’un père, d’une amante, d’un amant… et ce dans toute sa trivialité. Pourtant, il n’y a aucune charge obscène dans ces bagues. Qu’elles soient très travaillées ou reprennent le mouvement naturel d’une mèche de cheveux, elles nous renvoient à nos jeux tactiles dans les cheveux de l’autre, en fixant le mouvement, image arrêtée puis détachée du corps pour n’en garder que la sensation. »

maria ignacia walker - MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellery School 2013 - 2015: Maria Ignacia Walker – MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellerySchool 2013 – 2015 –   A simple fact of life that María Ignacia Walker obsesses over: The shedding of hair. The obsession – losing them, collecting them, ordering them, measuring them and archiving them. The desire – to preserve these losses – It gives rise to “transcendieron”.  The discourse is not about beauty and it is not about sensuality, not even about cultural symbols that hair carries.  How much hair do you lose constantly, everyday ? How many pieces grow out of your body and die every moment ?  “The transcendents” are a homage to the moments when you lose your hair. Captured and immortalized in the fragility of the porcelain, they give perpetuity and freeze all their expressions in the moment of their detachment from the body. With a threading method, the artist uses horsehair as connectors. They show the lightness, energy and freedom, while demonstrating the real, natural movement of the hair. Together with the act of keeping and protecting the hair in a porcelain form, they are given another life that keeps them present through their absence.

EXPO ‘Dark And Sweet’ – Galeria Articula, Lisboa, Portugal – 17 Juin-30 Juill. 2011

« Dark And Sweet »

You are warmly welcome to the opening of the contemporary jewellery exhibition  » DARK AND SWEET  » with the artists Elo Uibokand and Tiina Rajakallio, at the Gallery ARTICULA, Friday,
17 June , from 6 pm till 9 pm. The exhibition runs till 30 July.

EXPO 'Dark And Sweet' - Galeria Articula, Lisboa, Portugal - 17 Juin-30 Juill. 2011 dans Elo UIBOKAND (EE) 250188_1925331187230_1660671088_1911164_55039_n

 

Elo Uibokand is talented contemporary jewellery artist originally from Estonia. She studied jewellery and stone object design in Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, Lappeenranta, Finland and graduated 2009. Tiina Rajakallio is a Finnish emerging jewellery artist. She got her master’s at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008. They both are living and working in Lappeenranta, Finland. “Dark and Sweet” is their first collaboration together.
The dark side is often related to negative aspects of life. In this exhibition the darkness is necessary; it will highlight the light and sweet characteristics of our being. There are always two sides in every thing, together they’ll form a space where both is equally important and constantly in move, equally dependant on each other, so the harmony will be created.

Elo Uibokand has been exploring the theme by emphasizing the possibility for the encounter, femininity and tenderness in the subject by the brownish natural shades of copper and the oval-like shapes, referring to a human/woman. The cat has been obviously used as a symbol for the theme. Cats may be sweet and soft and purring…and at the next moment will bite your caressing hand. So there are oval shapes, smooth and easy to touch and handle and there are cats meticulously sawn out of the metal with sharp edges, as sharp as the bite of the cat. The cat images have been scratched to the surfaces of the metal, the drawings are subtle, even intimate – one has to come closer in order to see and recognize. Here, unlike in printmaking, the plate itself is the subject together with the earrings and necklaces sometimes sawn out from the same plate.

Tiina Rajakallio’s works are about forgetting as a part of remembering. Things get frighteningly lost and changed in our minds, there are empty spaces, black holes; moments we have no image about anymore. Rajakallio has been focusing on the aspect of catching the lost memory, using forms suggesting the handles, the vessels – abstract and concrete at the same time. The materials (mostly wood) have been treated in a different manner. Rough natural surfaces of the branches, slip surfaces carved and painted… You’ll be able to reach your memory… or it will slip away from your hands. The colour palette is delicately natural; except the deep dark ultramarine blue associated with the subconsciousness, the unknown and far away. There are necklaces and brooches to be found in Rajakallio’s series, somehow familiar and strange.
