EXPO ‘Marzee Graduate Show 2017′ – Marzee Gallery, Nijmegen (NL) – 20 Aout-25 Oct. 2017

Marzee International Graduate Show 2017

Please join us, and the participating graduates, for the opening of the Marzee International Graduation Show on Sunday 20 August 2017 at 4pm at Galerie Marzee.

Marzee Graduation Show - opening 20 August 2017 at 4 pm

The annual Marzee International Graduation Show, is the highlight of our exhibition calendar, and has grown from a modest affair to an event unparallelled in size and scope. This year’s show will present a selection of jewellery and objects by more than 100 graduates from 40 different art schools and academies from Europe, US, Asia and Australia.
Galerie Marzee is unique in its support for emerging young talent and since 1986 the Marzee International Graduate Show has offered the best new graduates their first opportunity to exhibit in a world-renowned gallery. During the opening we will also award the Marzee Graduate Prize to this year’s most promising students.
Bringing together student works from all over the globe, Galerie Marzee’s graduate exhibition is the only of its kind. It serves as an annual survey of thesis research in the field of jewellery, but more importantly, as a venue for these investigations, questions, and queries to come to light. Indeed, with contributions from over 40 academies and colleges across the world, design and process are as varied as there are selected works. As these students transition from the structure provided by university jewellery departments into a studio practice of their own making, the opportunity for their first body of work to continue into the contemporary conversation is significant. Perfectly housed within the gallery, the Marzee International Graduate Show 2017 marks the 31st installment, and the only jewellery degree exhibition of this size and scope.
The exhibition will be on show through October 25th.

A VENIR ! L’exposition collective « Corps Limite » invite à découvrir le travail de 6 créatrices de bijoux et plasticiennes. Leur différente sensibilité à la matière s’expriment à travers cette surface sensible qu’est notre peau…comment déstructurer les limites pour mieux les (re)construire… :

Nous allons nous questionner sur cette peau porteuse de mémoire et plus généralement autour de cette enveloppe qui regroupe, en plus de l’épiderme, les cheveux, les ongles, les poils… Cette carapace va devenir un territoire à envahir. Matière, couleur, élasticité, fragilité sont  les points de commencement de nos bijoux. Certaines d’entre nous vont créer pour l’occasion une nouvelle collection, d’autres vont développer un travail déjà existant et proposer de nouvelles pièces.

« On peut penser que la surface est ce qui tombe des choses: ce qui en vient directement, ce qui s’en détache, ce qui en procède donc. Et qui s’en détache pour venir traîner à notre rencontre, sous notre regard, comme les lambeaux d’une écorce d’arbre. »…comme les lambeaux de peau. »

PORTRAIT d’Isabelle MOLENAT :

« Comment en es tu arrivée à créer et à réaliser tes propres bijoux ?
Mon premier métier est architecte, mon second créatrice de bijoux.
Je suis passée de l’un à l’autre simplement, le lien entre ces métiers étant pour moi évident: on y trouve des logiques de penser et de mise en forme identiques. Dans le bijou on peut faire coexister l’architecte savant, qui choisit et transforme les matériaux en fonction de la conception de l’objet et le créateur qui puise dans les accidents et les contraintes de la matière les atouts et le point de départ pour la mise en oeuvre de l’objet… dimension pragmatique de l’architecte et dimension affective de l’artiste.
Dans ces deux domaines je m’applique à travailler avec et pas contre. Je n’impose pas, j’écoute, j’observe, j’analyse, je retranscris. Je crée des espaces, des objets avec cette même énergie de sens.
Au tout début les créateurs de bijoux qui m’ont interpellé ont été Line Vautrin, Lina Baretti, Catherine Noll. C Noll disait   « S’il est réussi, le bijou sera intemporel et traversera les époques. Il est des créations qui se situent entre bijou et sculpture » . 
En créant mes premiers bijoux, je cherchais à être dans cet équilibre entre matière, esthétique et sens. Je voulais situer le bijou dans un univers qui me touche et me bouscule, explorer la relation d’intimité qu’il porte. J’ai travaillé les thématiques du désir, du lien, du trouble, ces signes qui nous animent, nous humanisent. 
Et puis le bijou est devenu presque un soin, me permettant de quitter la fonction d’objet pour atteindre un lieu innommable, une zone archaïque où la création est là, sans autre raison que d’exister. »

"Knots" Isabelle Molénat « Knots » Isabelle Molénat

« Quelle est ta matière de prédilection?
Le textile s’est imposé à moi dès le départ, c’était une évidence. J’ai essayé de comprendre d’où provenait ce choix implicite. Le textile me renvoie d’abord au vêtement, à ce qui couvre, protège et met en valeur notre corps, le textile comme objet vital et ornemental. Le textile parle aussi à travers ses textures et ses couleurs, c’est le textile comme médiateur de sensations et d’émotions.
Je travaille certaines collections avec des textiles de récupérations, d’autres en préparant directement des teintures végétales pour colorer des soies dans des harmonies que seule la nature développe. Le processus suit une lente maturation des pigments, une inépuisable interaction entre la technique et le hasard. 
Le textile m’offre ainsi un champs artistique que je ne soupçonnais pas. »

"Knots" Isabelle Molénat,
                                                                            Knots d’Isabelle Molénat – work in progress
« Qu’est ce que tu aimerais exprimer au travers de tes bijoux autour du thème « Corps Limite »?
Le titre de cet ensemble de bijoux que j’expose est «Ce que la peau dit de nous».
Il y a une phrase de Didi Huberman qui décrit très bien ce que la peau représente pour moi : « On peut penser que la surface est ce qui tombe des choses: ce qui en procède donc». 
La peau est la surface de notre corps. Cette limite laisse s’exprimer nos années de vie et nos émotions:  les rides ( ce que j’appelle plus poétiquement «les plis de la peau»), les cicatrices… les frissons, la chair de poule … les joues roses, le teint blême…. La peau  exprime ce que l’on ne peut cacher,  elle est une fenêtre sur notre vie.
A travers mes bijoux je souhaite exprimer les liens au corps, l’écorce de notre vie. »

Reproduits en verre, ces fragments sont présentées dans une boîte de pétrie, devenant ainsi objet portrait/objet de curiosité.
matériaux: boîte de pétrie, verre travaillé au chalumeau (du au caractère artisanal de ce travail, il peut y avoir de légères différences entre la photo et ce que vous allez recevoir, merci pour votre compréhension)
dimension: boite de pétrie 4 cm de diamètre et parcelle 2 cm de diamètre
Attention, les quantités sont limités à 5 Parcelles par créatrice.

« SCENES OF THE MIND »
« My work is a means of expression, articulating ideas, transforming thoughts and emotions, shaping my psyche into jewelry.
This creative journey provides me with peace of mind and helps me improve myself. Pursuing and discovering new paths, experimenting with different colors and materials, is part of a process for bringing to life pieces that hold a special meaning to me as an artist and to the wearer.
My new project is about inner “Transformation”; transformation of the soul.
I created a jewelry collection that symbolises the transformation of positive and
negative thoughts that we are having during the day.
The continuous stream of thoughts, via meditation, gradually fades away, providing serenity and tranquility to the mind and soul. Through silence and observation of my thoughts, there comes an understanding, a need for change and self-improvement. »

Welcome to the opening of The ARCHIVEs exhibiton « Worthless » opening Friday the 19th of May 19.30 at Gallery IOS22 in collaboration with ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK 2017

http://www.arkivet.info/

ARKIVET (the Archive) is a group of Norwegian artists consisting of Putte H. Dal, Hilde Dramstad, Elsie-Ann Hochlin, Camilla Luihn and Heidi Sand.
As jewelry artists they each have their artistic distinction. What they have in common is that they like to apply a theme based and conceptual approach to their craft. Since their debut as a group in 2014 they have had numerous exhibitions both in Norway and abroad.
ARKIVET sets out to investigate, through their individual works, different angles on how jewelry may work as a medium to promote dialogue in society today. Projects are developed through discussion and research with a common wish to bring jewelry as an artistic expression into contemporary society. As an example ideological, socialist, capitalist or ecological values may be analysed and processed through jewelry to artistic expression that fosters reflection.
The jewelry materials, artistic idiom and narrative content discusses concepts in the context of sitespecific exhibition design. For each project ARKIVET reaches out to interdisciplinary collaborators such as musicians, writers and philosophers, and ARKIVET also publishes annual publications.
In the WORTHLESS project the group wishes to explore how worth or value is perceived in today’s society. What makes something valuable? What is worthless? ARKIVET promotes a visual and mental association space for a discourse about the social and economic mechanisms that govern what is considered valuable. ARKIVET emphasizes the communicative aspects of jewelry and chooses to reveal something about human dignity, political aspects, self-esteem and the environment.

« This collection has been created as a need to express my experience of being a new parent. When I observed all internal and external changes of the pregnant body, I embraced all the emotional ups and downs that we both had. I kept the storm of feelings created the moment we saw our baby and hold it in our arms and finally I stood amazed at the magnificent process of breast feeding. All these became the fragments of time at my beginning on the way to parenting.

How do these spaces interact with each other? Are they interconnected or out of balance? How do human beings deal with the condition of being the mediator?
Maybe there is no distinct answer but the exploration of these questions through the notion of materiality might be an answer in itself. »

Zhou Yiyan Piece: Set Of Jewelry, 2016 Porcelain with matte and glossy gold paint Photo by: Martin Konrad © By the author. Read Klimt02.net Copyri: Zhou Yiyan Piece: Set Of Jewelry, 2016 Porcelain with matte and glossy gold paint Photo by: Martin Konrad
Set of Jewelry it’s a composition of objects in porcelain displayed on a porcelain tray.

Zhou YiyanComing from the province of Anhui in the east of China, Zhou Yiyan studied art and design at the Shanghai Normal University, and then worked as a graphic designer for four years before settling in Paris in 2007 to pursue her artistic studies in photography and fashion design at Berçot Studio.
She subsequently developed a collection of art objects in porcelain that are inspired by her fascination for circles in Chinese culture, and that are worn as jewellery. Each item is unique and created by the artist in a contemporary ceramics studio. Featuring glossy or matt enamel, gilded or left untreated, each piece requires a long period of design work and perfect technical mastery in order to adapt the artisanal processes of ceramics to suit the desired form.
In 2016, Zhou Yiyan was among the 5 winners of the Young Creative Craftsworkers Award, which has been run by the Ateliers d’Art de France since 1960 with a view to revealing new faces from the vanguard of crafts in France.
Also, last year, in spring, Yiyan was noticed by Esther de Beaucé who selected a dozen pieces for Yiyan ‘s solo exhibition :“Circles”, which was held at Esther’s MiniMasterpiece Gallery. The gallery also showed Yiyan’s work at PAD PARIS ART+DESIGN, and ART ÉLYSÉES Art & Design, along with pieces by contemporary artists and designers.
In these porcelain circles, inspired by the traditional circles of Chinese culture and embroidery rings, Yiyan metaphorically retranscribes the complexity of human society, of the ties between people which build into circles (family, friends…) She primarily reveals the joy that she experiences when she spends a full day in the company of the “soft and modest clay” which she discovered at the Manufacture de Sèvres.
Yiyan exhibits her works in international Fine Craft & Creation Biennial taking place in Grand Palais, Paris.
 Zhou Yiyan interviewed by Klimt02

« The shapes in my work are universal due to my inspiration in the nature and old cultures, the way I use these shapes in my object and the material I use are makes it singular. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Iro KASKANI « en vedette » at Klimt02 !

Iro Kaskani interviewed by Klimt02

« Recently I realized that my curiosity is the most powerful motivating factor behind my work. I’m curious to see things that I visualize becoming facts, to elaborate an idea, to experiment on a certain technique, to see how this or that material is treated, to investigate on however a vision can be a wearable object and yet to see how others perceive my work. »

& Iro Kaskani on Klimt02

Where the LINE is all the story ……….. (aaaah !! « of course » ! she were an architect !!!!)

« Architecture is built environments, planned and designed to function as shelter or vessels of activities and thus it is fostering a physical relationship with the user, inhabitant or viewer. Jewelry takes this physical relationship further into intimacy by the change of scale and placement on the body… »

« Some years ago I used to believe: “my education and experience in architecture is guiding my creativity and my work is mostly determined by the interest to compose fine metals with alternative material and define new forms.”
Later on I concretised my thoughts stating: “Architecture is built environments, planned and designed to function as shelter or vessels of activities and thus it is fostering a physical relationship with the user, inhabitant or viewer. Jewelry takes this physical relationship further into intimacy by the change of scale and placement on the body. Through my work, I find it intriguing to explore ideas of space, scale and absence of symmetry, enabling me to combine precious metals with non-precious elements. Designing jewelry feels like investigating form, structure, and balance to derive a piece of art which will have an intimate physical relationship with the human body and will be completed only when it becomes part of the wearer’s experience and expression. A piece of jewelry is a powerful vehicle for communicating our identity.”
Recently I realized that my curiosity is the most powerful motivating factor behind my work. I’m curious to see things that I visualize becoming facts, to elaborate an idea, to experiment on a certain technique, to see how this or that material is treated, to investigate on however a vision can be a wearable object and yet to see how others perceive my work. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Sébastien Carré – En MAI Fais ce qu’il te plait ….

Sébastien Carré

En MAI Fais ce qu’il te plait ….. et il lui plait de participer à BEAUCOUP d’EXPOSITIONS !

Touchy Feely Exhibition  /  Baltimore Jewelry Center – USA

Touchy Feely Exhibition  /  14 Apr - 02 Jun 2017 -  Baltimore Jewelry Center

An exhibition that explores the tactile experience of jewelry. Adam Gopnik writes “Touch is the unsung sense – the one that we depend on most and talk about the least… the work of the world is done by handling it. We live by feel.” Jewelry is an intimate and sensual art form, providing a tactile experience for both the wearer and the observer. It’s an excellent medium for exploring the unsung sense of touch.

Artist list   Jill Baker-Gower — Amanda Bergman — Isabelle Busnel –  Sébastien Carré – Emily Culver — Mary Fissell — Brie Flora — Motoko Furuhashi — Missy Graff Ballone — Yong Joo Kim –  Michelle Kraemer – Michal Lando — Thomas Lauria — Helmi Lindblom — Jeffrey Lloyd Dever — Nathalie Maiello — Fern Robinson — Jolynn Santiago — Hallie Scheufler — Rose Schlemmer — Jina SeoCarina Shoshtary — Tyler Stoll — Aric Verrastro – Meg Wachs — Mallory Weston

While most visual art can only be enjoyed through sight, jewelry not only invites but encourages touch. As makers create work, they engage with their sense of touch, making decisions about materiality, structure, and form that will later engage the observer’s sense of touch, communicating a host of sensations and feelings. A dialogue between the maker and the observer is thus built on the social language of touch.
