EXPO ‘Swedes and Belgian Blues’ – Gallery Four, Göteborg (SE) – 2 Sept.-1er Oct. 2016

Swedes and Belgian Blues

Four Gothenburg, Sweden

Opening: September 2nd, 17-21

FOUR - Swedes and Belgian Blues

Chocolate, beer and Jean-Claude Van Damme, waffles, the European parliament and Brussels sprouts. Sadly enough people probably also associate Belgium with terror and cattle with breeding problems.
When we think of Belgium we think of jewellery! Not only of the diamonds in Antwerp, but predominantly of the eminent art jewellery scene. Belgium has some of the most famous contemporary jewellery schools, – galleries and – artists. Playful, thought provoking and with an elegant confidence, the art jewellery culture is vibrant and powerful.
Galerie Beyond (formerly Beyond Fashion) is situated in the central parts of Antwerp and has been run by Karin De Buysere and René Darmont for 15 years. The work of the artists that the gallery represents has a conceptual strength and challenges the traditional perception of what jewellery is. The connection to the lively fashion- and art field is unmistakable while classic goldsmithing seams more distant.
The exhibition ”Swedes and Belgian Blues” is a co-operation between Galerie Beyond and Four, showing work by 5 Belgian and 5 Swedish artists. Sweden is also a well-known country in the international jewellery world and we also have an influential fashion scene. Are there any similarities? Are there any differences? To connect a certain aesthetic or a style to a nationality might be impossible in a society where the global art scene is only a browser away. But is there something of a local culture? Swedes and Belgian Blues will be shown in Antwerp in January 2017.

« Since I was a kid I have had a strong interest in animals, especially fish and birds. I love their shape, their movements and the pattern of the feathers and scales, their bodies, faces and exceptional behaviour. The pieces on show at « Swedes and Belgian Blues » are made of plastics collected from garbage containers and ditch-banks. I keep my eyes open when I go to the hairdresser; I search in my friends’ bathrooms and fridges – you have to be observant if you are going to find that perfect jewellery material!

Sanna Svedestedt Carboo-  Building blocks, 2013, necklace made of naturally tanned leather Sanna Svedestedt Carboo -  Building blocks, 2013, necklace made of naturally tanned leatherSanna Svedestedt Carboo works with leather. In this material she create sharp and exact shapes that look heavy but are surprisingly light. Svedestedt Carboo uses old leather shaping techniques and Cuir Bouilli, adding a contemporary expression to a classic craft tradition. With the right touch, boiling hot water and quite a lot of stubbornness, the leather is transformed into the desired form. « I am drawn to the combination of controlled shapes and soft organic flow, and the clash that takes place in the meeting of the two. »

bracelets by Tine de RuysserTine de Ruysser - Dollar Bracelets, 2016,  made of banknotes
Paper money came into existence because people did not want to carry their gold around. Through time the relation between money and gold has been close but the connection has changed. Now we are hesitating about having too much money in our wallets but many of us are happy to show wealth, status or image by wearing gold. For this piece banknotes are used as a precious material. The notes are put together to create an object. The banknotes are not damaged, so the object can be taken apart and returned to the monetary value of the materials. Just like precious metals.

 Anneleen Swillen - Weights pending 2, 2016, necklace made of resin, plaster, concrete, cotton, rubber and natural stonesAnneleen Swillen – Weights pending 2, 2016, necklace made of resin, plaster, concrete, cotton, rubber and natural stones
Inspired by the way daily goods are consumed and (re)presented, Anneleen Swillen draws attention to the intrinsic but often unnoticed qualities of everyday objects. Weights, pending is an artistic research into both formal and functional potential of disposable packaging for object and jewellery design.  The necklace is composed of pairs of various pendants that differ in weight, shape and size. Both sides of the necklace can be shifted and scaled in search for a balance – or imbalance – when worn. Carrying these weights as a collection of charms around the neck and shoulders does not go unnoticed for the wearer or the viewer.

« I’m attracted to the qualities in different kinds of metal that make them perform in various ways, depending on the treatment. I see my work as collaboration between these qualities in the material and my own technical skills. m attracted to the qualities in different kinds of metal that make them perform in various ways, depending on the treatment.

« The human mind has the desire to name things. Our brains are so eager to recognize patterns and correlations they see them where there are none. Have a closer look at Karen Vanmol’s brooches and let us know what you see. »

« My jewellery is in constant collision between the organic and the rigidly constructed. In this project I wanted to simplify the construction of my jewellery to the greatest extent, and I have been working with old painting techniques to produce light in the darkness. Having previously worked with repetitions of one single form, I have now tried to shape one sprawling piece into a cohesive unit. » – Hanna Liljenberg

 - Jonathan Hens designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it.

Linnéa Eriksson’s work is a reflection of her surroundings. She finds inspiration in pieces of metal or in the feeling of a heavy beat. « It is a combination of traditional jewellery crafts and the modern street expression. »

Supported both by a scientific and empirical observation of the cells and patterns of the living, Arnaud Sprimont investigates an invisible and frightening universe.  The exploration of the strong ties that exist between human being and nature is the heart of his approach and of his will to define himself, in nature and in harmony with it, as microbiotes living in symbiosis with their host.

EXPO ‘Money makes the world go round ?’ – Beyond Fashion gallery, Antwerp (BE) -10 Mai-26 Juill. 2012

Expo Money makes the world go round ? by Tine De Ruysser

  Tine de RUYSSER (BE)

A jewellery collection made wholly from banknotes, commenting on our perception of the value of gold and money. An interactive installation that raises awareness of what we value in life. This exhibition uses beautiful objects to make us stop for a moment and think about the role of money in current society.
By making a jewellery collection from money, Tine De Ruysser questions the value we place in gold and money. The two materials are closely related. After all, paper money came into existence because people did not want to carry their gold around when travelling. When “paper money” was first used there was no more money printed then there was gold in the bank. Money was worth gold. Through time the connection between money and gold has turned around: now gold is worth money. So why do we still wear gold? Would we be better off wearing money? It is just as effective to show off our wealth and provide some wearable financial security. Or is it?
Concurrently, now most of us are feeling the financial squeeze, we are aware that we need to pay more attention to what makes us happy. - Dr. Tine De Ruysser

EXPO ‘Fold/Unfold’, Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles, Montreal (CA) – 14 Mars-29 Avril 2011

« Le monde ne cesse de faire des plis. Des plissements géologiques aux plis sur l’eau … » : c’est tristement d’actualité avec ce qui arrive au Japon ……. :-(

« Le monde ne cesse de faire des plis. Des plissements géologiques aux plis sur l’eau, des rides du corps aux drapés du vêtement, le pli est le mouvement même de la vie et il en est la trace. «  Extrait du livre Les plis de Nadine Vasseur (Seuil). 
Selon Nadine Vasseur, l’art du pliage ne serait pas qu’une invention japonaise. Le pli se présenterait sous diverses formes qui traverseraient les époques et les civilisations. En effet, dans l’histoire de l’art, le pli se retrouve dans tous les genres en sculpture et en peinture ainsi que dans le vêtement et la décoration. Des drapés de la statuaire grecque et de la peinture de la Renaissance en passant par les vêtements d’Issey Miyake et des compressions de l’artiste César : le pli est partout ! Le pli supposerait «le jeu du visible et du caché, de la présence et de l’absence, de l’apparition et de la disparition. Le repli est sa part d’ombre». Pour l’exposition plier/déplier, ces artistes et designers exposent leurs visions de ce thème dans des oeuvres étonnantes, séduisantes et émouvantes et réalisées avec un grand savoir-faire. 

Includes the innovative work of: Philippa Brock, Tine de Ruysser, Saloukee, Stephanie Lau, Elisabeth Lecourt, Eun-Kyung Suh

51X5G39F6PL._SS500_ dans Eun-Kyung SUH (US)
« Les Plis » – Nadine Vasseur – Edns du Seuil (oct 2002) – 156 pp.
« « Quand il y a pli, il y a mystère », dit le photographe John Stewart. Voilà pourquoi plis et drapés hantent depuis toujours l’histoire de l’art : de la technique du « pli mouillé » dans la statuaire grecque auxTraités du pli de la Renaissance, du « maître de la draperie », Nicolas Poussin, aux emballages de Christo. Sans pli, pas d’histoire de la mode non plus, laquelle décline depuis toujours plis plats, plis creux, plis accordéon et plissés soleil. Au XXe siècle, les couturiers Mariano Fortuny puis Issey Miyake redonneront ses lettres de noblesse au grand art du plissé. Mais on ne plie pas que du tissu. La technique du papier plié – ou origami – a d’abord servi pour la confection d’objets de prière et d’offrande avant de devenir une pratique ludique. Promenade tout à la fois savante et amusante dans le monde insolite et vertigineux du pli, ce livre est nourri de nombreux documents trouvés dans l’histoire de l’art et dans celle de la mode, auxquels se mêlent les portraits et les interviews de quelques « professionnels du pli » : artisan plisseur, sculpteur en papier, artiste peintre, photographe, chirurgien plasticien… qui nous font partager leur passion du pli. Car le pli, c’est aussi une passion. »
