(Lost) Paradise, with Ying Chen(Lost) Paradise, with Ying Chen
« As a jewellery artist, I believe my work is the bridge connecting myself with the outside world, which shows my thoughts, inner feeling and philosophy. What reflect on me from outside? How do I reply to it? I address my answers by making the questions tangible and personal. Fortress Besieged is one of my projects. The whole project is about my thought and feeling of the renovation in my city. “Shikumen”, the typical kind of buildings in Shanghai which I used to live, has been replaced by high-rises. I can not help but doubt, whether the demolition of Shikumen is necessary. Shikumen is like a paradise of all the memories from dwellers who have spent most of their time in Shikumen. However, their opinion was neglected. My work shows my inner struggle and sadness in the journey of finding the right answer. »

« The piece ‘Danger… woodworm!’ it is part of the exhibition ‘Life in the Urban Paradise’ , which was born from a previous collection, ‘Cities’. Nowadays, urban parks and public gardens are a safe haven. They are green areas where we can relax and recover the energy we nees for life. This piece is a subtle critique our society, because I think the man is the woodworm of the planet. Love the planet is to love ourselves. »

« Ominus, Pesimistic,Disapointing, contradicting,negative messages deprive the oxygene from our little but important beings.. However there is a small spark of hope far away that fills our dull lifes with color and light. My own paradise is my concern to strengthen the spark ,prevent and restrain the evil.. »

« Breathless attention fills two parts of a complex called life. Tenderness and violence, love and hate, harmony and conflict, birth and death, heaven and hell. The emotional side of my work is based on my personal experiences. Suggestions for the creation of Paradise were my emotional forces, experiences and mental images. Paradise – Garden of Eden from that we were expelled forever, and what we must now create alone. This term, in old Sumerian « Adina » – Garden means a place that seemed to be fruitful… Did we lost it? This land is real, it is an another dimension in this world, the real paradise can’t be lost. It is inside of us. If we believe that we are a part of it, there will always be a place that we call paradise. Jewellery is my art to show the world my own inner self, the inner world where I feel safe and beautiful. It’s the inner paradise that survives only with our power. »

« My paradise is a small space rediscovered in the middle of a chaotic reality, tended to the geometric and formal. A non-enclosed space, but yet communicative with new points of view from different perspectives. Apparently aseptic but a generator of light, ideas, energy, thus of a new life! Il mio paradiso è un piccolo spazio ritrovato fra una caotica realtà, teso alla pulizia geometrica e formale. Uno spazio non chiuso, ma comunicativo di nuovi punti di vista, di diverse prospettive. Apparentemente asettico ma generatore di luce, idee, energia, dunque di nuova vita! »

« The Archangel into pieces / THE BODY, THE HEART, THE WING The falling Archangel, crashing into pieces, is the metaphor of man who is walking on a road paved of self-destruction. Falling on lost paradise, The Archangel crashes into pieces: his heart moves from the body in order to survive – aware that his own wing will lead himself safe. On the contrary, the body will wear down gradually. The stone we have used for creating the three parts of The Archangel testifies, with its color and its porosities, the consequences of its own closeness with the human being. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Nanna Melland(Lost) Paradise, with Nanna MellandLost Paradises. In 1977 Bob Marley sang; “Exodus, movement of Jah people!” His words could not fit better for the situation of refugees today. Masses of people in a seemingly endless flow, leaving their home country in search of a better future somewhere else. Paradise lost. Paradise search. I chose to work with the suitcase as an object of our time. A time of flux, of movement, of wanted and unwanted journeys. It can be disturbingly absent or disturbingly present. For the exhibition Lost Paradises, I present a serie of rings called Suitcaserings. Cast in bronze in the lost wax technique, coloured afterwards. You need strength to wear and balance these heavy skin coloured Suitcaserings on your hand, A strong grip to get by in this world of suffering. Of Lost Paradises. »

Sebastien Carré - Lost Paradise(Lost) Paradise, with Sébastien Carré
« Just imagine… Living in a world in which we would not have destroyed our relationship to nature. In which, the society, the moral, the value or our belief would not have put us in a virtual cell. A world of difference, of similarity, of ambiguity but after all isn’t it what is making a more interesting world. Vegetation, Animal, and Mineral are all combined in objects reminiscent of organic forms, the shape of the central figure in all form of shamanism around the world, the Tree that connects us all together. Mixing materials in order to create a symbolic life in an object by using interactive mediums allows me to wake up a body which tends to be more insensitive due to an over-communicativity of society. Let’s hope for a world with more shamanism, more bound between all living forms. Let’s Cherish the diversity in our small world, being together is already a treasure. »

« LOST CIVILIZATIONS Accumulation of different objects left over the centuries that are worn, eroded by time. Ancient architectures with traces of gold leaf and polychromy. Lush vegetation but withered at the same time. Paradise and decay, everything has a place in the lost and imaginary paradises. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Claudia Steiner(Lost) Paradise, with Claudia Steiner
« The earth as the ideal for a happy and content existence, with indescribable natural beauty. Is this still true? This is not the case anywhere in the world. It is precisely our time that makes us doubt whether or not this is indeed true. Everyone has their own ideas of paradise and can explore it in a variety of ways. Sometimes with the look at hidden details sometimes viewed at large. The contrasts of geometric lines and round forms, the uneven surface, reflect the contrasting variety of our earth. The way to the personal paradise in life is different and sometimes requires detours, means unevenness in the life cycle – one up and down – in order to somehow have found his personal ideal of a happy and content life. Not everything is at first sight recognizable as such, some « paradise » requires a longer confrontation with it and will only be discovered in small. »

(Lost) Paradise, with Nadine Smith(Lost) Paradise, with Nadine Smith
« I live in Wellington and work part time as an artist and nurse. Caring for others has developed my fundamentally humanist philosophy. Fueled by this and the fragility of life, pieces often reference the relationship we have with the developing technological world and how this creates possibilities for enhancement or re-creation of our environment, our lives, even ourselves. Being an avid recycler with magpie tendencies and an active imagination lends itself to a diverse range of work. Medical and other recycled paraphernalia when used out of context can create a tension between the familiar and the unknown. The works aim to intrigue, inviting the audience to reflect and make connections from their own life experiences. »

« Demolition Neckpiece This piece is made using found electrical components gathered at the beach beside Cockenzie coal-fired power station, along the coast from my home. The power station, which dominated the coastline since the 1960s, was demolished in 2015. It was the cause of much pollution, changing the nature of the coastline, creating miles of new land with infill of the spoil it generated and leaving huge ‘lagoons’ of fly ash, some of which are now reserves for birds and wildlife. The power station destroyed a wild, natural coastal habitat, but nature is slowly reclaiming the site. In using found plastic components from the site, which have been sea and weather-worn in combination with silver and opals, I aim to question notions of preciousness and disposability. »

« Return to origin. We yearn for happiness, seek peace, love. And, generally, we seek outside ourselves. I suspect none of this depends on external circumstances. My heart tells me that the lost paradise is inside me, waiting to be found. »

« Without the ubiquitous plastic our civilization could hardly have become what it is today, but at the same time it is a burden on the environment with far-reaching consequences. Especially plastic bags are an obvious symbol for mindless consumerism and a throw-away society. This makes them so interesting for me to work with, to create from them, with the help of a clothes iron and a soldering iron, textures and structures that recall forms of the natural world which we have set ourselves apart from. Hand-formed leaves form lush necklaces, but they can only ever be pale images of the real thing. We feel safe with plastics, at home and comfortable in our modern paradise of artificiality. But it is the natural world around us which is the real paradise, in danger of becoming a paradise lost. »

« My natural paradise, my oasis, flows the meandering waters of the Parana River Delta. I find no better place to muse about life and to relax than when I am rowing my boat in this maze of water and rainforest. Every concern or fear seems to vanish while I row my way through this cluster of islands. Nature in all its glory to admire: golden water, green trees and vines and colorful birds. This brooch illustrates the landscape of this Delta, its colors and textures, and the feelings it arises in me. »

« Fruitfully Yours, extinction With this work I focus on today’s paradox: simultaneous population growth and entering the sixth mass extinction. Jewelry from Extinction are silent in comparison to their colorful opposites (Fertility) like extinction is silent in comparison to birth. With color contrast from black balloons I want to put forth the feel of fading away. «

Her passion lies in visual arts and music. She likes to observe daily life but is also curious about escaping from it.
Annea Lounatvuori`s first solo exhibition in the gallery Vernon is a continuation of her work from the 2015 collaborative exhibition Time Perception. In Time Perception Vol.II she will be getting deeper and closer to her passion of working with horse hair through the means of contemporary jewellery.

Christine Jalio (1978) is extremely fascinated by the human psyche and the emotions and reactions that are part of it. She is intrigued by asceticism, old age and sensitivity. Her starting point is always an emotion to which she strives to find the correct combination of materials, shapes and colours. The “Loss” collection is a continuum of her earlier “Past, Loss, Future” collection which tells the story of aging and life before and after big turning points in life. In this new collection she has been concentrating on personal loss, sadness, and loneliness; on what an individual goes through emotionally when loosing someone loved. The main material she uses is still Silk Clay, but in addition she has been experimenting with other materials such as resin, acrylic and plaster this year.

 Wiebke Pandikow - Necklace from the 'Tropaeolum'-series,  2015, recycled plastic bags and wood: Wiebke Pandikow – Necklace from the ‘Tropaeolum’-series,  2015, recycled plastic bags and wood
Wiebke Pandikow studied Jewelry Design in Lahti, Finland and now lives and works as a jewelry artist in Helsinki. She has been working with plastic bags since 2014. Without the ubiquitous plastic, our civilization could hardly have become what it is today, but at the same time it is an immense burden on the environment. Especially plastic bags are an obvious symbol for mindless consumerism and a throw-away society. This makes them so interesting for Wiebke to work with: to create from them textures and structures that recall forms of a natural world that we have set ourselves apart from. What was living organisms thousands of years ago, then became oil, then became plastic, now is returned into forms that resemble living plants once more. In our culture, plastics are commonplace, invaluable yet insignificant. For this artist, they bear the possibility of beauty.

Hatara Project, Time Perception VOL.2 #28 - 'Come', Helmi Lindblom 2015, brooches, mixed media, picture Ninni Vidgren: Helmi Lindblom   ‘Come’, 2015, brooches, mixed media, picture Ninni Vidgren
Helmi Lindblom is fascinated by the beauty of oddity.  
The jewelry series Come is made to mimic the object that awakens the child within us. Come is a series of brooches and necklaces that invites you to come and step closer maybe even touch. Series is inspired by a plant that consists of two cactuses crafted together by man.The combinations are made purely for aesthetic reasons regardless of the health of the plant. With this series Helmi recreates the feeling that the crafted cactus evokes in beholder: triggering a childlike curiosity and excitement based purely on the bizarre aesthetics of the plant.

Melina Lindroos  'Hiding Places',  2015, brooches, mixed media: Melina Lindroos  ‘Hiding Places’,  2015, brooches, mixed media
Melina Lindroos is a jewelry artist located in Helsinki. Themes that she feels especially drawn to are places, time and people’s inner lives. Melina is a listener and a searcher. Her approach could be seen as a life long journey, which lifts up bits of what she sees and what she wants to see, where she is coming from and where she is headed. « My series Hiding places lifts up the importance of shelter related to safety. These brooches are made through a slow meditative process in a comforting space. » says Melina.
The tender series of brooches invites the viewer to peek inside and hold them.

Ginta Zabarovska   'Home',  2014, necklace, silver plated brass, wood, plexiglas, aluminium: Ginta Zabarovska   ‘Home’,  2014, necklace, silver plated brass, wood, plexiglas, aluminium
Ginta Zabarovska (born 1989) graduated bachelor (2013) and master (2015) programs in the Art Academy of Latvia metal design department. While studying she actively participates in various exhibitions and competitions.
The artist draws her inspiration in traveling and by contacting with interesting personalities. As an important source of impact in the artist’s activities she considers studies at the Art Academy of Strasbourg in 2012/13. Due to the semester spent in France, the artist has found a growing interest in contemporary jewelry history and now continues her studies in the Art Academy of Latvia as a PhD student working on jewellery art history in Latvia during the post soviet period. While creating design for new jewelry pieces Ginta doesn’t spend long hours preparing sketches or technical drawings. Rather she prefers to work in the material; the idea gradually crystallizes in the working process. From a variety of experimental materials jewelry models are created searching for their compatibility with one another. The artist is bound by various types of graphic lines and delicacy in the plane so she fits these values in three dimensional pieces – they become jewelry.
Gintas jewelry theme for the exhibition Time Perception VOL.2 is home. As Ginta is repeatedly working in Strasbourg for a longer period she find’s the feelings of home and affiliation an inspiration for her work.
