ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK (AJW) 2017 – general schedule – Athens (GR) – 18-21 May 2017


AJW 2017 on Facebook

AJW 2017

Contemporary jewelry meets the Athenian audience in a 4-day art event with international participations.

For a second year in a row, Athens Jewelry Week opens its doors to welcome its guests. The objective of this new and dynamic institution is to present to the Greek audience the trends and the rich diversity of contemporary art jewelry, as they have been evolving in Greece and abroad.

In the framework of the international jewelry scene, the organization constitutes the Greek presence on the world map of equivalent art events with an ever increasing interest. AJW 2017 covers four days of exhibitions, lectures and workshops, highlighting contemporary jewelry creators, their art and their authentic work.

The central exhibition titled “Art + Jewelry: Intersecting Spaces is hosted this year by the Benaki Museum (Pireos Annexe) and it aims to present the exceptional work of 48 selected artists. The influential German jewelry maker Peter Bauhuis, invited as a guest artist, will honor the event with his presence, by exhibiting his work in the main exhibition hall and by opening the lectures program.

AJW 2017 also includes 5 group exhibitions that will take places in various venues around Athens, lectures and seminars. The closing of the event will be marked by the awards ceremony. Awards will be given by international institutions/entities that are active in the contemporary jewelry field.

Athens Jewelry Week – organized by Anticlastics, a group of contemporary jewelry creators – aims, among other things, at introducing the art of contemporary jewelry to the broader public. It is addressed to artists and art aficionados of all ages and backgrounds, but mostly to all those who love contemporary art jewelry and want to learn more about it. Because -as the poet W.B. Yeats would say- « The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper ».

Pieza en construcción desde el 2014 al 2016. Proceso de Cortar-coser: unir/lastimar/marcar/: cicatriz-costra: herida abierta y cerrada
La costura como puente de unión, un puente es el vehículo entre dos partes, para unirlas, conectarlas, vincularlas.
La pieza presentada es parte de un proceso de trabajo de dos años que a modo ritual, lento, repetitivo fui desarrollando, cortando mis prendas, usadas/vividas con registro de mi cuerpo y de las experiencias transitadas, para luego volverlas a coser, sin pensar en un fin, sin pensar en que será luego de terminar.
Me servía como una práctica que calmaba un sentimiento interno doloroso de separación, estaba separada y buscaba de manera inconsciente generar el puente que vinculara el pasado y el presente para poder cerrar la herida.
Esta pieza es un exorcismo, una ofrenda, ha sido para mí un ritual su construcción, puntada tras puntada iba uniendo pero a la vez lastimando la piel de cada prenda.

All four are active in the Contemporary Jewellery scene and follow parallel paths. Their work covers a wide range of areas in the field of creative expression : from research and design to making and teaching.

Esta actividad, en la que los participantes fabricarán sus propias joyas, se desarrollará los días 27, 28 y 29 de julio, de 11 a 12.15 horas, para niños y niñas de entre 4 y 7 años y los mismos días para menores de de 8 a 12 años de 12.30 a 13.45 horas.

* El MEH organizará la conferencia ‘La joya, más allá de la belleza’, por parte de Sara Serna, comisaria de la exposición, quien dará a conocer el objetivo y resultados de esta muestra, dando a conocer cómo todo el proceso creativo de la joyería actual lleva detrás una investigación, una innovación y un estudio que, en este caso, nos remite a nuestro pasado más remoto. La charla será el jueves, 22 de septiembre, en el Salón de Actos del MEH. La ponente invitará a reflexionar sobre las joyas en relación con materiales y utensilios prehistóricos que se asemejan en formas y texturas a obras contemporáneas.

 My contemporary jewelry collection in an exhibition !!!

Thanks to Antonio Sánchez García and to all the EASD Valencia team, what was dreamed two years ago after drinking some « Valencia’s water » (not water at all ….. ;-) …) will become reality very soon …..
About 80 jewels from my collection (brooches, neckpieces, bracelets) in 4 themes (« Black envy« , « All Whites« , « Get the Blues » and « Red (thread) » will be displayed, separated by a stream of  about 60 rings …… Was VERY hard to do a choice (galeria Tossal is not big …) !!!

Of course jewels by the « better » actual jewellers (Christophe Burger, Sébastien Carré, Edu Tarin (Talente Prize 2016), François Pereña, Patricia Lemaire, Marianne Anselin, Teresa Faris, Maria Rosa Franzin, Philip Sajet, Noon Passama, Jorge Manilla, Gaetano Pesce, Gigi Mariani, Liana Pattihis, Marta Mattsson, Ramon Puig Cuyas , etc etc ……..) but also by all the youngs newly graduates  (my favourite field of investigations !  ….) from the better jewelry schools (Alchimia in Italy, Idar Oberstein in Germany, Massana in Spain, Afedap or HEAR in France, Suny New Palz in USA …..).

I’m VERY proud &  filled with emotion to share my choices and to give back to these jewellers, I hope, the pleasure they gave me.

The exhibition, titled « PASSION BIJOU(x) », will be held in Galeria Tossal, Valencia (Spain) from April 21 to May 22 2016, during the MELTING POINT jewelry event that occurs every two years in the city of Valencia.

Con este espíritu se ha organizado en la Galería Tossal el homenaje a Marianne Gassier, coleccionista apasionada de joyas de vanguardia y mujer dinamizadora de la cultura joyera contemporánea a través de su blog de prestigio internacional (OH !! …) . Se ha preparado, igualmente, una exposición monográfica de la obra del estonio Tanel Veenre, cuyas piezas podréis contemplar en las salas nobles del Palacio del Marqués de Dos Aguas. El Centre del Carme, por su parte, acoge la sección dedicada a los jóvenes creadores: Jorge Manilla, Edu Tarín (premio Talente 2016 y exalumno de la Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny de València), los participantes en Visible Wall y Página en blanco, o la muestra dedicada a jóvenes joyeros argentinos.

Por último, también deseamos celebrar con todos vosotros la consecución de uno de los grandes retos marcados por el Departament de Joieria de la EASD de València: la implantación en nuestro centro de los estudios de Grado/Bachellor en Joyería, únicos en España, que nos equiparan a otros países europeos. En este momento, estamos trabajando para ofrecer, igualmente, un Máster, que esperamos vea la luz en breve.

Nos vemos en Valencia, del 21 al 24 de abril para trabajar, pero también para compartir y disfrutar.

Lisa Walker is an artist/jeweller/designer mostly working in the area of contemporary jewellery.
She exhibits and is involved in projects with museums, galleries, and other venues around the world. She is regularly invited to teach workshops and give lectures.
Her work is a study into the differences between an accepted notion of beauty or stereo-type, and something else – the search for a quality that we hardly ever see, but nevertheless perhaps recognise. Walker says « I don’t want to make pieces that are easily steered through our established channels, I want people to be forced to work on new syllogisms, analogies and positions. » She is continually pushing towards the extreme – a method which enables an expansion in thinking and ways of working.
Walker uses a large range of materials and techniques.
She makes reactionary work, consciously active with influences from all walks of culture and life. The pieces are often laced with references to contemporary jewellery of the last forty years, questioning and researching what jewellery means, what it can be.
Walker largely positions her work around the history, future, and boundaries of jewellery. She makes pieces for the future.
« Everything is food for art ».
After many years spent living in Munich, Germany, Walker is currently based in her city of birth Wellington, New Zealand.

BoraxConference BORAX 08001 « What do you have in your hands? »
The Bórax08001 collective has invited JOYA 2015′s participating artists to collaborate with them and carry out the What do you have in your hands? project in their own cities, with their own jewels and with their own unknown public. The goal of this project is to reach a part of society that is unaware of Contemporary Art Jewellery. By going out on the streets, direct contact between the creators and the passers-by can be established and feedback gathered. During Bórax08001′s conference, the collection of reactions and dialogues obtained from these interventions will be shared and reflected upon by the members of the collective, the participants and the audience.


Bórax08001 is a basic component in jewellery because it prevents oxide from forming and, at the same time, works as a flux favoring the flow of metal when it is being soldered and fused. The Bórax08001 collective acts as an antioxidant that drives our artistic creation, but also as a flux, favoring the flow of ideas and concepts as well as the development of new techniques and trends in contemporary art jewellery.
We come from multiple geographic coordinates and backgrounds. This particularity has enriched us personally and as a group ever since our paths crossed at the Escola Massana (Barcelona, Spain). As we grew up and deepened our skills as jewellers at Massana, strong synergies and complicities were created between us. And we have chosen Bórax08001 as the means to keep them alive, searching for new horizons and goals while sharing experiences and learning from each other.
Our work can be defined as the cartography of personal and experimental dialogues through contemporary art jewellery. Dialogues through matter, space, color… based on quests, poems, memories, doubts, thoughts, mistakes, games, dreams, intuition, perfection, light, consciousness, unconsciousness, beauty, and emotions.
Bórax08001 means contemporary, signature, art jewellery. Signature, because we value work from beginning to end and we wish to recover the value of authenticity, taking pride and joy in creating high-quality jewellery, putting special emphasis on the details. Contemporary, because our pieces of jewellery speak for us and reflect the society we live in. And art(istic) because we strive to express ourselves through metaphors and symbols while we create unique pieces.We conceive our collective as a medium, a tool, a channel that allows us to disseminate contemporary jewellery culture to the public unaware of this form of art. We are convinced that to make our work known it’s not only important to show it in the traditional established places, but also to approximate our artistic and conceptual vision  to people who are outside of the contemporary jewellery circuit. We try to do so by taking jewellery to their own territory in a natural, open and simple way through actions in public spaces which  occur in different places.  Our intention, through these direct interventions with society, is to bring closer the contemporary jewellery concept and to extend the conception of art to jewellery
