‘NEW NOMADS’ New Traditional Jewellery 2012

More Info: http://www.newtraditionaljewellery.com

exhibition New Nomads

exhibition New Nomads will be shown during SIERAAD Art Fair, 1 – 4 November 2012, in the Gashouder, WesterGasfabriek, Amsterdam  www.sieraadartfair.com 

For the 2012 design contest and exhibition the professional jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) has chosen the theme ‘NEW NOMADS’, because both literally and figuratively this theme offers many possibilities for inspiration.

NEW TRADITIONAL JEWELLERY, international jewellery design contest - JURY (gauche)NEW TRADITIONAL JEWELLERY, international jewellery design contest - JURY for 'new Nomads' droite

the professional jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) at (hard !) work ….

The history of jewellery is as old as mankind. While people went in search of parts with the best living conditions they carried their valuables with them, wearing them on their bodies. Jewellery that represents economic and social status, as it still does nowadays in the case of nomadic tribes. The dissemination of religions went hand in hand with an unprecedented range of religious jewellery and ornaments, ranging from small containers for religious texts to reliquaries and portable altars.
To this day, jewellery made of stable materials like gold and gems is the guarantee for your ‘ticket home’ in times of crises or when you have to flee from high-risk areas. Due to the global financial crisis prices of this so-called ‘flight gold’ have skyrocketed. Is there an alternative? Nowadays there are quite different streams of migrants but the principle is the same: people in search of parts with better living conditions. The whole world is on the move, from refugees to tourists, from emigrants to employees of multinationals. And you don’t even have to get up from your chair: Skype e.g. has made videoconferencing into a social medium.
NTJ asks contemporary professional jewellery designers to build bridges between the traditional jewellery of e.g. nomads, pilgrims, explorers, globetrotters, refugees or colonists and possible symbols bearers representing the mobility of the ‘NEW NOMADS’. Check the attachments for conditions and criteria.

Belles rencontres à JOYA : Valentina Caprini

Valentina Caprini, son immense sourire, son prénom au charme si désuet, la chemise en dentelle de sa grand-mère, « pizzi e merletti » …., ses coups de fard charmants, et, surtout, surtout, ses bijoux et leur histoire ….. leur histoire qui m’a tellement touché, faisant écho à ma propre histoire, jusque dans ce final en éclatement de rouge, cette « Rinascita » couleur de vie ….
séquence émotion

« Jewellery is Therapy
The act of making gives the possibility to take out what is unconfortable to keep inside.
The work and the self are strictly linked, what you live and what you make are going in the same direction.
My original project was about old fabric, mostly lace.
While I was making my own lace its structure started to become like a cell structure, thousands of meters of threads to materialize what was happening in my own life.
I treat my pieces as I do with my body.
The body becomes the support of its own representation, its re-birth. »

Comme une moderne Pénélope, tirant tissant brodant le fil, mètre après mètre, y incluant médicaments et pilules, comme pour mieux parvenir à sa guérison, comme des gris-gris, de petites conjurations du mal qui, peu à peu, se dilueront avec le temps, patiemment déroulant le fil, du temps, de la vie, de l’ouvrage, tirant de soi, au propre comme au figuré, le mal, la patience, le travail, le temps, la « parole », car cet ouvrage est parole, expression de soi, partant du pâle exsangue pour arriver au trop plein de sang de la guérison, de la vie ………

oui, « jewellery is therapy », et d’ailleurs chaque bijou porte un nom de médicament ……
