« The goldsmith Sibylle Umlauf sees her work as a metamorphosis, as a dynamic principle: She contrasts dark and hard iron with soft, shining and warm gold. By using forging, chasing, etching and inlaying techniques she gives each individual object its own unique signature. »Born in Stettin, in that time Germany, today Poland. Sibylle Umlauf lives and works in Berlin and Italy. She studied goldsmithing at the Fachschule für das Edelmetall Schwaebisch Gmünd and Fine Arts at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Berlin from 1964 – 1970.

PREZIOSA is a cultural project designed and co-ordinated by “Le Arti Orafe”, since 1985 the most prestigious contemporary jewellery school in Italy.
The project, launched in 2005, has become one of the most important European events devoted to contemporary jewellery.
The conceptual quality, the presence of artists of international fame, the prestigious set-up, the elegant catalogues and the original formula that comprises the organisation of conferences with the artists taking part, make “Preziosa” an appointment that lovers of contemporary jewellery cannot afford to miss.
A country of exquisite jewellery traditions, Italy has no museum devoted to jewellery, and temporary exhibitions have always been rare.
The attention devoted by the communication media and the cultural institutions to initiatives devoted to this art form has – apart from a few shining exceptions – always been limited, while great interest has always been expressed by lovers of contemporary art.
Through the organisation of events such as PREZIOSA, the school wishes to help to fill a gap the discrepancy of which is more or less consciously acknowledged.
Since 2008, a «parallel» exibition for young artists is organized: PREZIOSA Young is already an international reference for new artists and goldsmiths

Mina Kang

« I have earned a master’s degree of jewelry design at Kook-Min university and I am now in activity as a jewelry-making artist. From the young age, I got much interested in sewing and juwely making, thanks to the mother who are skillful in sewing and knotwork. Thru my works I am trying to express my various feelings and emotions in combination of lines, colours and the concept of space. »

« Her work is « Light, colorful, refreshing » – The pieces are sewn bits of fabrics in contrasting colors and malleable geometric shapes. The strictness of the architectural order of these round and angular objects is almost at odds with the airy materiality of the pieces. The sophisticated rhythm of the structure and color of the pins is in perfect sync with their technically precise construction. » (BKV-Prize 2012 for young applied arts)

Un Certain Regard -     Artists: Karin Seufert, Philip Sajet, Suska Mackert, David Bielander,Sophie Hanagarth, Sigurd Bronger  -  Marino Marini Contemporary Art Museum  (Florence, Italy)  20-Jun-2013 - 21-Jul-2013    website: www.preziosa.org2013’s edition of the international exhibition PREZIOSA Contemporary jewellery organized by LE ARTI ORAFE Jewellery School.
PREZIOSA 2013 starts from the otherness of this peculiar Art, and wants to focus on visual reaction of the “public” in face of contemporary research jewellery.
The thematic exhibition will be centred on the imaginary, on expectations and assumptions of the public in relation to the jewel.
The exhibition presents works by six international artists selected as examples of specific issues related to the imaginary: recognition/estrangement/surprise/rejection/trespassing, and will be divided into three sections:
– « To be or not be »: shapes visually recall ancient jewels like precious objects, but in reality….?
– Artwork by Karin Seufert and Philip Sajet
– The conceptual research on the imagination in jewellery: Suska Mackert
– « What I see is what I see! »
The irony of David Bielander; the aggressiveness of Sophie Hanagarth; the fun mechanics of Sigurd Bronger.

PREZIOSA 2013 includes two side events at the main exhibition, offering visitors additional opportunities for reflection on contemporary jewellery :
- Wearable!
Photo exhibition of worn contemporary jewellery.
The exhibition of jewellery is complemented by a photographic project of the show itself.
The need to show how these jewels can be worn in everyday life, how they interact with the people and with the surrounding space, has led to a specific concept, project, which has been developed using the skill and sensitivity of the particular photographer Eva Sauer.
Twelve jewels, which will be shown in the exhibition, will be chosen, worn and set in particular places of the city of Florence.
The twelve pictures will be displayed in the Museo Marino Marino inside PREZIOSA exhibition, and will also be present in the places where the photos were taken, so as to establish a mutual connection between the exhibition space and the town.
- PREZIOSA Young 2013
The work of the 8 emerging artists selected based on their personal research in contemporary jewellery, will be the “Young” section of PREZIOSA 2013.
