EXPO ‘Beyond Textile’ – Galería CONTEXT, Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona – ES) – 19 Fevr.-21 Mars 2015

Apertura – Opening, Jueves – Thursday, February 19 at 19:30 h
  BEYOND TEXTILE - 18 Jewelers from Argentina 2015(Alejandra Koreck – broche « La Dicha II » – plata, rafia sintètica, paper)

 

BEYOND TEXTILE¨ reune una serie de piezas de joyería realizadas por dieciocho diseñadores argentinos. Se trata de una serie de obras que, si bien tienen como referente el género de la Joyería Textil Contemporánea, es para trascenderlo y aventurarse fuera de sus límites a partir de los heterogéneos recursos expresivos, diversidad de criterios y variedad de materiales y técnicas de los que hacen uso los diferentes autores. No obstante, lo que permanece como criterio unificador es la relación – a veces discordante – entre la Joyería Contemporánea y la diversidad de técnicas provenientes del diseño textil.
 
BEYOND TEXTILE, gather a series of jewellery pieces made by eighteen Argentine designers. This is a series of works that, even if they have Contemporary Textile Jewellery genre as a reference, their aim is to trascend it and venture outside their limits using heterogeneous expressive resources, diversity of criteria and wide variety of materials and techniques implemented by different authors. However, what remains as a unifying criterion is the relation -sometimes conflicting- between Contemporary Jewellery and the diversity of techniques resulting from textile design.

EXPO ‘Broken memories, precarious links’ – CODA Museum, Apeldoorn (NL) – 21 Sept. 2014 – 25 Janv. 2015

Broken memories, precarious links

Assembled jewellery by Tota Reciclados

Fragments of old jewellery and everyday objects, bits of fabric, photos, illustrations and other memorabilia; they lie around unused and rarely looked at in kitchen drawers, nightstands or boxes in the attic. But they are not thrown away. After all, they tell personal stories or represent precious memories.


Broken memories, precarious links
During their stay in Amsterdam, Tota Reciclados – formed by Argentinian designers Valeria Hasse and Marcela Muñiz – invited neighbours, artists and students to donate these kinds of objects and materials and to share the stories attached to them. They used the materials they were given in jewels that together make up a collection. In return each participant will get back a specifically designed piece of the final collection, including part or all the material they left behind, mixed with other material.

As a conclusion to this project, the collection will be exhibited in CODA Museum.

EXPO ‘Brooch / Bross’ – Sterling Gallery, Budapest (HU) – 26 Mai-17 Juin 2011

The Sterling Gallery cordially invites you to an exclusive exhibition, entitled BROOCH, of young contemporary artists.

https://d15cquu4k8zfpu.cloudfront.net/photos/1243/hl.jpg?1304935474

Sterling Gallery located in Budapest (H) organizing an exclusive exhibition, entitled BROOCH in order to create an interactive information exchange, a dialogue, a conversation or a meeting between Hungarian and international artists from different countries.

The jewel as a « household object » has pronounced functional complexity.
It has both a role and a tradition in each community.
It can be inferred from certain eras, cultures, ethnic groups and lifestyles, habits and thinking.
It might be a sign, or a symbol which is answering to a non-asked question.
It can refer to the wearer’s age, identity, the religious affiliation, marital status.
It is the distinguishing sign of the everyday and the holidays, a status symbol.
It is a part of magical and practical function in people’s lives.
A jewel fits the body and it’s present in clothing.
The jewel expresses the relationship between people.
The brooch, brooches have also been made in the Bronze Age, Greek, Roman and in other European workshops.

These had a functional role as indispensable elements of clothing and self representation.
The brooches had the force to join, screw and fix the fabric of the cloth.
The use of the buttons and buckles took the practical role of the brooch away, but in the same time the aesthetic function of the brooch has been enhanced.

« La exposición pone de manifiesto la creatividad de joyeras y artistas textiles, quienes presentan obras que demuestran la posibilidad de trascender los tradicionales límites de los oficios, sin perder de vista el objetivo de las joyas: poder ser portadas, lucidas y embellecer a quienes las usen.
El tema en común entre estos trabajos es lo textil, ya sea por los materiales, las técnicas o la referencia de tipo simbólico o conceptual.
La exposición expresa la vigencia del encuentro entre dos mundos aparentemente muy distintos, donde las artistas se animaron a cruzar las fronteras preestablecidas por cada disciplina para unirlas.  » Lilia Breyter

« Ornamentos textiles y las joyas-  historia-
Las joyas han sido utilizadas desde los primeros tiempos de la humanidad tanto como ornamentos míticos, religiosos, simbólicos o seculares.
Los ornamentos -al ser utilizados como signo exterior de riquezas, privilegios, rangos jerárquicos, políticos o religiosos de las personas que lo portaban – en diferentes épocas, formaron parte de los adornos a los muertos y también como ofrenda para los dioses.
La relación entre joyería y arte textil no es un encuentro contemporáneo. Las cuentas y piedras preciosas o semipreciosas se han usado cosidas a ropajes ceremoniales en diferentes culturas.
Uno de los registros escritos más antiguos de la combinación de joyería y textil se encuentra en el capítulo 28, versículo 4 del Éxodo, donde se describe la vestidura sacerdotal, “…y harán el efod de oro, de hilo azul celeste y púrpura y carmesí y lino torcido, trabajado con primor…”
Hay ejemplos de complementación de joyería y textil en el antiguo Egipto, como un brazalete de la Dinastía 18, compuesto por hileras de piedras semipreciosas unidas por hilo de oro.
Los usekh eran collares anchos con forma de cuello usados por la antigua nobleza egipcia sobre los hombros. Generalmente estaban compuestos por piedras preciosas y amuletos conectados con técnicas de tejido.
En sitios arqueológicos de las tribus íberas (siglo II AC) se han encontrado pendientes de hilo de oro enrollado en los extremos y torques (collares usados como insignia) de cables de plata circulares con remate cónico y centro afiligranado de plata.
En el siglo XX las técnicas textiles han sido utilizadas por distintos creadores de joyería que lograron combinar la dureza y frialdad del metal, con la suavidad y calidez de la tela y los hilados.
El uso de materiales no tradicionales en joyería, como hilados de origen animal, vegetal, monofilamento, fibras sintéticas y material reciclado, son objeto de continuas investigaciones.
Esta apertura hacia nuevos materiales y técnicas y el intercambio de conocimiento han creado una integración enriquecedora, constituyendo una importante manifestación cultural de nuestra época, al vincular joyería con diseño y arte textil.

EXPO ‘Think Twice: New Latin American Jewellery’ – Museum of Arts and Design of New York (USA) – 13 Oct 2010-8 Janv. 2011

Museum of Arts and Design of new York (MAD) – (New York City) -  13-Oct-2010 – 08-Jan-2011 
Think Twice: New Latin American Jewelry Showcases Contemporary Jewelry From The Region For The First Time In a U.S. Museum

« Think Twice: New Latin American Jewelry, presented by the Museum of Arts and Design from October 12, 2010 through January 8, 2011, will feature unique work by nearly 60 jewelry makers, representing over 20 Latin American countries. Among the artists included are the Brazilians Mirla Fernandes, Dionea Rocha Watt, and Claudia Cucchi; Valentina Rosenthal and Walka Studio from Chile; the Argentinians Elisa Gulminelli, Francisca Kweitel, and Silvina Romero; Jorge Manilla, Martacarmela Sotelo and Eduardo Graue from Mexico; and Miguel Luciano from Puerto Rico. 
The show has been guest-curated by the Netherlands-based, Mexican-born architect and historian Valeria Vallarta Siemelink. 
Objects of adornment have played a significant cultural role throughout Latin America’s history, from the spiritually potent jewelry of the pre-Columbians to the eye-catching ornaments worn by Mexican drug gangs to advertise their status and menace. Now a new generation of jewelry makers working outside the field’s conventions are examining how this complex relationship with physical adornment evolved–and why. 
Think Twice aims to bring the audience a clear picture of the landscape of contemporary jewellery in Latin America and its development in the last 10 years, showing the way in which visual artists and jewellery makers born or living in Latin America view and relate, through jewellery, to such a vast and diverse continent. 
The exhibition, conceived by Otro Diseño, is born out of a passion for jewellery as a medium of personal and cultural expression and of the conviction that the fresh, intense and highly creative work of Latin American jewellery makers outstandingly represents and nurtures the culture they live in and therefore greatly enriches and diversifies the international landscape of contemporary jewellery.
“The new Latin American jewelry must be appreciated for what it is. One shouldn’t impose stereotypes or resort to clichés,” says guest-curator Valeria Vallarta Siemelink. “Far from being an imported concept from the West, jewelry-as-art in Latin America is very much a product of the region’s history and its diverse and dynamic modern societies.” 
“This is a very special show,” adds Ursula Neuman, MAD’s jewelry curator. “This jewelry is virtually unknown in the United States. The artists’ realize their sophisticated concepts through intriguing choices of materials and techniques, creating unique works that present a fascinating amalgam of indigenous cultural elements and the latest trends in international contemporary jewelry design.

” To bring clarity to Latin America’s complex culture and history, the exhibition is organized around three themes, addressing the region’s past, its unique fusion of ethnic influences, and its ever-changing socio-political realities. 

History, Memory, Tradition
The tension between tradition and modernity is crucial to Latin American history. Heritage and memory, both personal and collective, are among the subjects expressed by these artists through pre-Columbian and colonial jewelry methods and traditional craft techniques. Take the Colombian Mariana Shuk. She has made a series of rings using traditional ring shanks ordered from mega-jewelry suppliers. She creates a ring by interlacing two identical shanks. Its shape determines which techniques—stone setting, enameling, filigree—she will employ to customize it in the Colombian colonial style. The process has produced a perplexing assortment of rings that confronts past and present, value and insignificance. By contrast, another Columbian artist, Linda Sanchez, creates her jewelry pieces by employing weaving techniques that have been used by an Amazonian tribe since ancient times. 
A Flair for Invention
The artists in this section are some of the boldest jewelry makers anywhere. Skilled at improvisation, they make brilliant use of a rich variety of native materials along with such everyday objects as balloons and drawer handles. A spontaneous attitude and a contrary vision are central to their daring approach. The Mexican Andres Quiñones can make an exquisite choker from sticks of bamboo, a few broken guitar strings, a handful of freshwater pearls and silver wire, all of the materials collected from garbage dumpsters in Mexico City. Colombian Helena Biermann presents Hit the Road, a series of brooches that collect the insects stuck to a car in its 286 km trip from Munchen, Germany to Domaslav, Czech Republic. 
Forging Identity: Latin America as a Source of Inspiration 
These jewelry makers are creating an individualistic language, expressive of who they are and where they come from. Art, religion, money, violence, tradition, family, gender are among the themes that define their lives, uniting their collective and individual identities. Foreign-born artists, who are somehow bound up with Latin America or have had a profound impact upon it, are included in this section. Alcides Fortes, for example, was born in Cape Verde, trained as a gold and silversmith in the Netherlands, and today lives and works in Mexico. He specializes in politically charged jewelry, creating such works as a necklace made out of the porcelain portraits recovered from the graves of a family killed in the Mexican revolution. The piece reveals both an admiration for Mexico’s culture and history as well as a loathing of its corruption, economic disparities, and veiled racism. By transforming the common objects of his native land into fetishized commodities, Miguel Luciano examines how American consumerism has affected Puerto Rican culture. Plantainum, for example, is a series of necklaces and pendants featuring a platinum-covered plantain. The shell is seductive and pristine, but underneath the fruit is rotting. 
Figurative and abstract, conceptual and symbolic, traditional and experimental, contemporary Latin American jewelry is tremendously varied, and it is this diversity that enables it to communicate its ethnicity and to transcend it. » (Klimt02)

Tota Reciclados – Marcela Muñiz  & Valeria Hasse

We reuse materials and objects trying not to be nostalgic, to emphasize the mixture, in order to create jewels to be worn. Instead of traditional jewelry techniques we work assembling different elements using wire and threads, closer to the idea of provisory rather than eternal.

This project begun out of the interest of designing and creating new objects from collected, inherited and found objects, in the context of a huge economical crisis in Argentina in December 2001. Working only with material available in the surroundings became the starting point of the creative process, using discarded things to comment on the cultural world where we come from. Recovering and transforming objects into jewels carries many references to this world, through the process of recombining and recontextualizing objects, images, techiques and ideas.

Recycling for us involves notions of assambling, recombining, including chance, serendipity, mistakes, failures, improvisation, fragmentary and hybrid. It expresses the limitation of resources through the creation of new meanings with unlimited posibilities.

As a team of two people working together, we also deal with issues of collaboration and authorship in the creative process, that we see connected with the ideas of assambling, collaging and mixing, so related to our cultural background.

WOW !!! coup de coeur ! explosion de couleurs ! BONHEUR ! :-) ESTUPENDO !!
