EXPO ‘la mort vous va si bien’ – Janus Gallery, Montreux (CH) – 1er Nov. 2014 – 15 janv. 2015

Janus Gallery - « la mort vous va si bien » 

 EXPO - Janus Gallery - Montreux (CH) 'la mort vous va si bien'

Mort et Bijou, deux compères qui marchent main dans la main depuis la nuit des temps. Memento mori, vanités, bijoux de deuil, bijoux funéraires de toute sorte et plus récemment crânes os et squelettes avec ou sans intention particulière derrière, ont toujours peuplé le monde de la parure.
Janus Gallery s’est demandé comment les bijoutiers contemporains interpréteraient ce thème, et plus particulièrement comment ils approcheraient l’idée séduisante et dérangeante de « la mort vous va si bien ».
Pour le découvrir, Janus Gallery a invité plus de 120 bijoutiers contemporains du monde entier à participer à un concours-exposition sur le thème « la mort vous va si bien »

« La paillette évoque généralement une ambiance festive et gaie célébrant la joie de vivre. Lorsqu’elle a une durée de vie limitée tout comme le confetti, elle devient éphémère. Jetée dans l’air, sa trajectoire se termine en jonchant le sol. La paillette abandonnée se meurt et tombe dans l’oubli marquant ainsi la fin des festivités. Seul l’éclat lumineux de sa couleur persiste et chatoie. L’assemblage des paillettes permet de capter les reflets de couleur scintillante de cet instant. Mon défi a été de mettre en valeur et d’apporter de la profondeur à ce matériau souvent considéré comme léger et futile. Par la conception d’un sautoir imposant, je place la paillette au rang d’un élément de parure. »

« J’ai réalisé La mort aux doigts en 2009, c’est une de mes pièces de diplôme. J’avais alors choisi de travailler sur le thème de la liberté et des limites qui la définissent, en prenant un axe philosophique. Pour ce faire, j’abordais des questions existentielles telles que : la conscience, le corps, l’espace, le temps, l’autre, les autres, en revisitant des bijoux historiques. Cette pièce correspond en l’occurrence à la question de la liberté face au temps, autrement dit : la question du suicide. Inspirée par la relecture du « Mythe de Sisyphe » de Camus et par les nombreux débats sur l’euthanasie qui avaient lieu en France à ce moment là, je revisitais la bague poison en une bague attelle, proche formellement d’un objet médical. Le geste victorieux (le V si symbolique de l’index et du majeur) permet au système sur ressort de libérer le fatal curare. A manipuler avec précaution… »

La Commune de Montreux et Janus Gallery ont le plaisir de vous annoncer le nom du premier vainqueur de ce concours. Il s’agit de Mme Lucile Burnier, jeune bijoutière contemporaine suisse (1989), issue de la HEAD, qui poursuit actuellement ses études à l’ECAL. Son oeuvre puissante NON CONSIGNÉ sort des sentiers battus, traitant non de la mort individuelle mais de celle collective, par le biais de la mort industrielle. Ses deux colliers, qui faisaient à l’origine partie de son travail de Bachelor, ont surpris les membres du jury par leur maturité, leur puissance leur beauté formelle et leur côté iconoclaste.

« NON CONSIGNÉ est une collection de bijoux sur la mort industrielle européenne. Elle est un regard sur notre société qui semble impuissante et indifférente face à cette situation. Au début de mon travail de Bachelor, j’ai été marquée par les évènements qui se déroulaient sur le site sidérurgique de Florange en France. Les conséquences de la mondialisation économique font que l’Industrie européenne est en crise. Elle subit des fermetures, des délocalisations et semble être condamnée à disparaître malgré la ferveur de ses ouvriers qui se battent, corps et âme, pour la préserver. Elle laisse des régions en zone sinistrée, aux paysages industriels en friche et un savoir faire en péril.
J’ai commencé mes recherches par réaliser des illustrations en sérigraphie de ces paysages, à partir de photographies de hauts fourneaux de Berndt et Hilla Becher. J’ai ensuite joué avec les codes, les formes et les matériaux de l’industrie. Je me suis intéressée au rebut comme les bouteilles de bière, contenant en verre banal dont la beauté des formes indiffère. Je les ai coupées et réassemblées ce qui a créé une nouvelle esthétique. De même, par un changement de matériaux, des tuyaux en PVC deviennent précieux et séduisant en porcelaine. Au final, les différents éléments ont été assemblés entre eux par un travail sur les noeuds.
Ma collection, aux pièces imposantes, est un cri face à l’indifférence et l’impuissance. L’orange fluo symbolise cette menace. Les bijoux sont ensuite rangés dans des boîtes en bois inspirées des coffrets à vin, elles sont leurs cercueils.«

A côté de cette oeuvre novatrice, deux autres pièces ont soulevé l’enthousiasme du jury, recevant ainsi une mention: il s’agit du collier VENEER du bijoutier contemporain suisse Kiko Gianocca (1974), et de linstallation NECKLACE OF TEARS de l’artiste contemporaine finlandaise Monica Wickström (1955). Fort différentes l’une de l’autre, ces deux oeuvres contemporaines d’une fragilité émouvantes, s’inscrivent tant dans le mouvement des vanités que dans celui des memento mori.

Kiko Gianocca - “Veneer” Neckpiece 2014 Wood veneer, balsa wood, brass, silverKiko Gianocca – “Veneer” Neckpiece 2014 Wood veneer, balsa wood, brass, silver
« “Veneer” is my latest body of work, it is a series of neckpieces. At first glance a wooden veneer has all the attributes that resemble something dead. It has been so manipulated by man that it is only the ghost of the tree that it once was. As soon I start to work with the veneer however, even just with a little water to give it elasticity, it moves and seems to return somehow to its past life. The pieces’ irregular shapes are also partly inspired by the inkblot images used in a Rorschach test, a method of psychological evaluation. Like in these inkblot images, in my neckpieces you can find references of butterflies, flowers and other elements, symbols that remind us that beauty don’t last and life is short.
Each piece is given a unique shape informed by the grain of the wood. In this way the thin layer of veneer references it’s three-dimensional past as solid wood. Like each of us, these works are made up of different elements, each with their own identity and uniqueness. The final works have a shadow-like presence, representative of something belonging within. I like to think that the neckpiece gives the material from which its made the opportunity, through its shape and moving parts, of a second life »

Gioielli in Fermento “Wearing Intensities”
 Gli ornamenti in esemplare unico si caleranno negli spazi suggestivi del Rivellino a sottolineare una conversation in opere e immagini selezionate dalla galleria. Nuova sperimentazione per osservare come colori, sfumature e intensità nei Gioielli in Fermento giocano il loro ruolo determinante.

Gioielli in Fermento è un concorso internazionale il cui Premio Torre Fornello edizione 2014 è stato assegnato lo scorso maggio durante la mostra di apertura presso La Vigna delle Arti di Torre Fornello.
Ogni anno  Gioielli in Fermento presenta le infinite espressioni degli autori che operano nelle arti e professioni contemporanee. Con la realizzazione di opere-gioiello uniche, essi si pongono in relazione a un tema estremamente popolare, facendone il mezzo per un racconto intimo intorno al pianeta del vino e al suo terroir inteso come insieme di fattori e valori culturali profondamente radicati, di cui cogliere sintonie e colori.
Questo il tema dell’edizione 2014:
#wearingintensities  vestire le intensità
#wearingthecoloursofwine  indossare i colori del vino
indossare le sensibilità, le intensità, le culture mediterranee con un ornamento contemporaneo

« Every yaer  Gioielli in Fermento/Jewels in ferment  aims to gather the infinitely individual expressions of contemporary jewellery authors in relation to popular passions: wine and territories, looking at this terroir as an ensemble of cultural deep-rooted issues.
wearing intensities, wearing the colours of wine
as you can wear sensibilities, identities, mediterranean cultures, 
through a piece of contemporary jewellery

This Year we introduce a theme that concerns with the world of colours  as a main concept applied to the contemporary jewellery, as a means of expression at all the degrees of intensities, almost a  metaphor of all added value as it happens for instance in music in representing the real scale of intensities to perform a composition.
The authors which met our project before already testify the aim of our suggestion: as for the previous editions, Gioielli in Fermento means to think at a work designed and produced as a unique piece or limited edition jewellery and this year in particular it means to conceive the colour as an instrument of individual expression, material and immaterial simultaneously to commit to the piece the link between each single story and a wider project for the identification of that mediterranean accent such as the culture of wine and our territories may represent. »

Giovanni Sicuro, Italy1st Prize Series of rings:  „Bianchi Untitled 1-3“, Agate, gold"Giovanni Sicuro, Italy 1st Prize Series of rings:  „Bianchi Untitled 1-3“, Agate, gold
« The effect of the rings fascinated the Jury; at first glance they are classic pieces of jewellery but the material used irritates the observer, awaking curiosity. The simple, white agate does not look like stone but rather like ivory or plastic. Only when touched is the cool, hardness of stone revealed and on closer inspection the concept of the pieces is exposed. A traditional ring is reversed here; the entire body of the ring is cut from a layer of white agate concealing the gold band. The stone is not reduced to being a decorative accessory but forms the defining element, which through exceptional craftsmanship replicates ‘traditional’ ring stones. This subtle play with the expectations of traditional ring design and with the notion of agate as a stone which is valued for its pattern or colour, won over the Jury unanimously. »
Levani Jishkariani, Georgia 2nd Prize Object: Wood, agate  Levani Jishkariani, Georgia 2nd Prize Object: Wood, agate 
« This object, made from wood and agate sticks, impressed the jury with its archaic expression. Its effect is earthy, as if it came from the distant past but at the same time it is very contemporary. The piece works on completely different levels, awakens associations and memories, from a piece of agricultural equipment to an instrument of torture, depending on the viewer’s experiences. This multidimensionality earned it second place from the jury.«

« The unusual combination of materials in this necklace delighted the jury. The elastic band is reminiscent of a brassiere strap; a very feminine element, which however remains mostly unseen, hidden. Through its use in a classic neck adornment, the hidden is placed centre-stage, drawing the observer’s gaze upon itself. The soft material enters into a fascinating combination with the hard, cold stone exacerbated by the positioning of the supple band, designed for proximity to the body, on the outside and the distal stone next to the body. Through the choice of materials, the colour and the form of the agate the piece relates strongly to the body. The jury particularly highlighted the haptic quality of the jewellery; when worn the cool weight of the agate is felt on the neck but the stone nevertheless fits itself to the body and is very wearable. Beyond its function as a necklace, the jury explicitly commended the effect of the piece as an object »

Amberif Design Award 2014 – exhibition of the award-winning works in the International Amber Jewellery Design Competition “Materia Prima” C

AMBERIF design award

The watchword of this year’s Amberif Design Award is not just the alchemic representation of the primal substance able to take on the perfect form but also a direct reference to the contemporary idea of sustainability in design which respects local tradition, refers to the historical heritage of functional arts and elevates natural materials. Prized already in ancient Rome, Baltic amber is predisposed, as a substance close to the ideal, to be transformed into an original design. The unique nature of each individual nugget has always provoked artists to look for the right form, interpret associations, make use of its internal structure, colours, shades, transparencies and natural peculiarities preserved for the lucky finder over the past 40 million years. In an era of disposable products, it is sometimes worthwhile to look back to pre-history and fix your sight on the elusive aspects of both the physical and the metaphysical. The material, the medium itself usually gives designers a hint towards their first decisions; let us try to listen to this hint and follow through with it. We expect jewellery (without any functional limitations at all) in which the amber will be a remarkably strong justification for highlighting its most natural properties.
Prof. Sławomir Fijałkowski
