EXCEEDED BORDERS  Schmucksymposium Zimmerhof 2014


Now a days limits and borders are changeable and exceeding limits belongs to our everyday experience. The image of the boundary as a line, which separates two or more spaces from each another, becomes a border area, a space in-between; an interface or threshold between different areas.

But what limits are exceeded in ‘Jewellery’ exactly? What are the consequences of transgressions? Can existing boundaries actually be repealed or we rather only deal with their shift and visualization? What happens when all limits are exceeded? Do we overrun at some point to an end? Borders and limitations have been part of our human history and nature from the beginning. Whether it may be a physical or mental limit to cross, it has been and is still a challenge that — often through destruction of existing norms — still helps development. Jewellery today is constantly stretching its existing borders. Shifts from being only functional and adequate to fulfill it’s long existing social position, to expropriate characteristics of fine art and gaining a strong conceptual content and presence. What are its limits? Why the aim, to make it more conceptual content and presence. What are its limits? Why the aim, to make it more than what is was for hundreds of years? What are the special means to help it grow and to change its borderlines?

Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER – 30 Avril-30 June 2013

Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER  -  May / June 2013  Venue: Gallery of Art in Legnica

This year in the Legnica International Jewellery Competition REVOLT participated 319 artists from 43 countries. They sended 625 pieces. International jury (Galit Gaon (IL), Jiro Kamata (JP/DE), Hans Stofer (CH/GB), Sławomir Fijałkowski and Aneta Lis-Marcinkiewicz (PL)), which sessed in the days 4-5 of April, qualified to the exhibition part of pieces and chosed laureates. Names of the winners we will know on the vernissage, 18th of May 2013  in the Gallery of Art in Legnica, Poland.

Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER - may-june 2013


It is better not to turn on the television today. We are being attacked by images of economic crises, stock market crashes, falling ratings, budget deficits, cost cutting programs and increasing unemployment from everywhere. As a reaction to the overwhelming impression of a lack of opportunities there are emerging movements such as « Occupy … », helplessly protesting against banksters, corporations and governments. Doesn’t speaking in such circumstances about jewellery – the subject invariably associated with the demonstration of wealth and selfish hedonism – seem socially unacceptable and even ethically suspect? After all, the burning  of ATMs and the broken glass of jeweller’s shops have become part of the frustration of all the Indignados.
But there is also another aspect of the design and use of jewellery – which – like no other product of the imagination – can be an effective message, manifesting the point of view of the user – a voice of protest, being anti-or pro-, attitudes of rebellion, rebellion and guerrilla warfare. Can a standard set of slogans written out on banners, T-shirts and slap tags be complemented with another more sophisticated message? Are jewellery designers able to demonstrate their own opinion and join the discussion concerning non-aesthetic issues? Is the tradition of exclusive gold jewellery going to be our irreversible remorse? And will the chorus « Diamonds are a girl’s best friend » always sound  as infantile as the recent testimony before the European Court of Justice in The Hague of the famous model Naomi Campbell, who at one time accepted an embarrassing gift from the dictator of Liberia, tried for war crimes, so evocatively reconstructed in the movie « Blood Diamond » with Leo DiCaprio as a ruthless mercenary?

About festival

For more than thirty years, the Gallery of Art in Legnica has specialised in promoting contemporary jewellery and artistic objects made mainly of silver. We have been organising individual and group exhibitions of Polish and international artists, publishing exhibition catalogues, organising conferences and symposia, as well as fashion and jewellery shows, competitions and fairs. The most important event we organize is Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER. Every year we present individual and collective exhibitions as part of the festival, including:
LEGNICA INTERNATIONAL JEWELLERY COMPETITION The competition dates back to 1979 and every year it has a different topic. The competition is open and addressed to all artists, whose task is to present their work on a given topic – every year a different one – including an original artistic idea and representing a high level of artistry and technical skills. What is favoured is the concept, value and meaning of an artistic expression. Works entered for the competition are assessed by an international jury, on which over fifty outstanding goldsmithing artists and theoreticians have sat so far. What is characteristic of the competition is the fact that the winners of the first three prizes receive – according to a long-standing tradition – silver pellets and cash prizes.
The submitted works are qualified by an international jury. Over the years, we have invited a number of distinguished artists to seat on the jury, including: G. Babetto, G. Bakker, O. Boekhoudt,  S. Bronger, R. Puig Cuyás, P. Derrez, G. Dobler, A. Gut, F. Falk, M.R. Franzin, M.J. van den Hout,  E. Knobel, O. Kűnzli, T. Noten, V.K. Novák, R. Peters, M. Petry, K. Pontoppidan, G. Pucsala, A. Ratnikowa, P. Sajet, B. Schobinger, P. Skubic, Z. Songqing, W. Tasso-Mattar,  T. Smeets, D. Watkins, M. Vilhena, A. Zanella and from Poland – M. Dubiel, M. Gradowski, I. Huml, S. Fijałkowski, G. Jabłoński, J. Sokólski, A. Szadkowski, T. Zaremski, A. Wolski.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS is a cycle of retrospective presentations of distinguished personalities in jewellery art from Poland and abroad, including: J. Byczewski (PL), S. Fijałkowski (PL), P. Kaczyński (PL), N. Cherry (GB), H. O’Connor (USA), E. Knobel (IL), V.K. Novák (CZ), F. Peters (AU), M. Petry (GB), Rose & Gisbert Stach (D), L. Šikolová (CZ), W. Tasso-Mattar (D).  Soon: R. Puig Cuyás (E), H. Hedman (S), P. Sequeira (P).
SILVER SCHOOLS is a cycle presenting the artistic oeuvre of jewellery art schools from Europe, their professors, graduates and students. So far there have been presentations of schools from Barcelona, Birmingham, Bratislava, Düsseldorf, Edinburgh, Florence, Hanau, Idar-Oberstein, Lappeenranta, Łódź, Matosinhos, Munich, Oslo, Padua, Pforzheim, Prague, Stockholm, Tallinn and Vilnius. Continuing the cycle in the subsequent years, we are going to show one after the other all European silver schools. A total of 22 schools has been presented so far. The cycle will be continued with the intention to show all of them.
DEBUTS is a cycle presenting pieces of young Polish artists, who just start their activity in the field of design and art. Our plan is to invite novices from abroad.
THE BOUNDARIES OF GLOBAL ART is a cycle of science sessions devoted to the newest art, goldsmithery and design.

Schmucksymposium Zimmerhof – Bad-Rappenau, Germany – 7-10 Juin 2012

Schmucksymposium Zimmerhof

Zimmerhof symposium (44ème édition)
The public and private lives of jewellery ( 7 -10 juin 2012)
Un séminaire sur le bijou contemporain – programmé par brune boyer, emmanuel lacoste et benjamin lignel – sur l’invitation d’Yvonne von Racknitz et Uli Haass – avec Namita Wiggers, Cristina Filipe, Christoph Zellweger, Susan Pietzsch, Alena Alexandrova, Christian Hoedl, Carole Deltenre, Cécile Bulté, Pascale Gallien, Alexandre Bardin alias Vera Berkson, Philippe Liotard, Emmanuel Lacoste & Christian Alandete.


Concept 2012

This year, the symposium’s programme was put together by the French association la garantie. The program will tackle, on the first two days, the different public spaces in which contemporary jewellery can be found, and how actors in the field have sought to challenge the boundaries between those spaces. The last two days will focus more specifically on private spaces and the body.
Our primary aim is to deal with issues that have cropped up recently in opinion pieces and academic texts, and in contemporary practice: how makers sometimes produce for museums, and forget the user; how museums in turn try to propose ‘hands-on’ exhibition projects; how some individuals have literally gone ‘on the street’ to meet the user; how the body is at once a destination, a reference, and an arena of transformation. In short, we intend to provide a platform for debate on the exciting and problematic to and fro of contemporary jewellery between maker, wearer and institution.

Secondly, we hope that this program will give the attendees an opportunity to test a growing interest in the field for exhibition design against the larger historical and theoretical context of museology and (contemporary) jewellery exhibition history.

The results of this symposium will later be published both online and in print.

Brune Boyer, Emmanuel Lacoste & Benjamin Lignel, für la garantie


About Zimmerhof

Zimmerhof is a yearly reunion of around 200 members of the jewellery field – students, makers, designers and historians – taking place in an impressive old farmhouse estate in Bad Rappenau-Zimmerhof.
While the four-day event revolves around talks and presentations, it also provides the opportunity to chat at length with those peers we often only ‘bump into’ in other events: it’s an occasion to exchange information, communicate about one’s work, and generally have a good time together.

In order to keep both the attendants and the organisers on their toes, the lectures are always organized by a different team of jewellery professionals: two, sometimes three, people choose a theme, and select a roster of international speakers accordingly. The speakers come from Spain, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, and France; alumni students from academies throughout Europe also present their work (talks are given either in English or German). According to the tradition, visitors are encouraged to bring a couple of their own pieces, which are shown on Friday night on the now legendary Schmucktisch (jewellery table).

Zimmerhof Symposium is the longest existing symposium of it´s kind. Through the years it has grown to be the time and place to be for contemporary jewellery people to meet and greet, to talk and discuss. Bolstered by tradition and ever changing programs, we feel sure that the symposium will continue to inspire for many years to come: we hope to see you there!

JEMposium – Wellington, New Zealand – 10-13 Fevr. 2012

Classé dans : Nlle Zelande (NZ),Symposium — bijoucontemporain @ 21:55

JEMposium : Jewellery or What

International Jewellery Symposium: 10 – 13 February 2012

JEMposium brings together contemporary jewellers, collectors, curators, critics, and jewellery enthusiasts from New Zealand and abroad to discuss and celebrate the art of jewellery.

Keynote speakers : Ted Noten (NL); Manon van Kouswijk (NL/AUS); Karl Fritsch (FRG/NZ); Fabrizio Tridenti (IT); Liesbeth den Besten (NL)

Why JEMposium ?

Contemporary jewellery in New Zealand has a history of hosting significant international experts to run workshops and give presentations at conferences. Such occasions generate a ripple of inspiration that enriches the local jewellery community, extending to the makers and stimulating their practice.
JEMposium builds on this tradition, with a calibre of artists and experts that marks the event as the most far-reaching yet.The symposium is a unique opportunity for international authorities on jewellery to acquire exposure to New Zealand practices, and for local practitioners to gain insights into global trends and movements.

What’s happening? Day-by-day overview:

Friday 10 Feb, afternoon into evening: Events kick off with a Premiere Opening, where the internationally renowned keynote speakers will deliver illustrated presentations of key aspects of their practice. This introductory session gives a unique snapshot of the international contemporary jewellery scene and the context for the coming days is defined by the presentations: engaging not only the jewellery world but appealing to a broader visual arts audience. Guest tickets are available, or you can register to attend only this event.

Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 Feb: Two full days of themed presentations, panel-led discussions and PechaKucha 20×20 presentations, chaired by the keynote speakers and other guest experts.

Monday 13 Feb: Jewellery practitioners can apply to attend this Masterclass day, where they bring current work and rotate in small groups through feedback sessions with each of the visiting artists. Numbers are limited; see the Registration page for details.

Workshop : Helena Lehtinen: Cameo
Cameo is a traditional piece of jewellery which has its origins in seals.
 During history it has been in and out of fashion in courts in Europe. Nowdays it is usually a red-white silhuet of a lady, most often worn by eldery ladies.
Reflecting to what this classical piece of jewellery has been in the past, students will search cameo´s meaning today. 
What it has been, what it could be? Is there any significancy left, what it could present in today´s society / to today´s people?
 What is your cameo? 
With new materials and way of working students will create new traditions in cameos. 
Working with stone is possible in the workshop.

The 7th ‘SchmuckDenken’ will strike a balance between the symposia to date and identify the initial contours of a theory of jewellery. At the same time, possible parameters for strategies for action for an autonomous creative practice of applied art in the conflicting demands of craft, design and fine art will be developed. As a result, the focus this year will be on the artistic identity of jewellery creators and their social role and responsibility.
