« in the brooches « Memoria Aperta«  ………..  the artist effectively tests the value of the memories that bind everything and everyone. In this collection, ceramic animals, porcelain dolls, sculpted ivory shapes, woods, glass, miniatures of old photos—unearthed, inherited, and collected relics—are mixed in with incredible reproductions in lost wax of shoes, dresses, tiny tools of daily use, mini-bestiary, and gems. Paganin weaves her thick net of information on a sort of genetic algorithm in which everyone can find their reflection. Each brooch, every necklace starts a story. It’s up to us to choose the plots. »  (By Silvia Valenti on  AJF)

  Julia Obermaier« My main subject is about private space. If someone is crossing the borders of my spaces without permission, it causes a bad feeling. I try to protect them as much as possible, but in daily life, one cannot always keep direct surroundings and personal space in their preferred way. Our outside world is always in relation with each other and our circumstances.
I create in my pieces rooms, containers, boxes or little caves. These spaces can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer, that they use to confront a busy world ».

Artist Statement
The extraordinary power of objects is obtained, because people believe in them. The more mundane the objects are, the more powerful they become. 
My practice contextualizes the primitive energy that is submerged beneath the layers of garments. When the body is removed, the absence becomes an empty structure. The internal structure is evidence of human existence. It remains full of authentic spirit and fantasy. 
Through the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing materials into symbolic forms, I uncover the hidden intimate and sensual power of humanity. It is a moment when ordinary objects become surreal and uncanny in order to redeem the socially constructed expectations and perceptions.

Jelizaveta Suska
She was born in Latvia, where she completed her Bachelor degree education in Art Academy of Latvia as a metal designer. At the age of 24 she moved to Gothenburg in Sweden for studying and permanent living. In 2015 she graduated from Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) at University of Gothenburg.
In year 2016 Jelizaveta received The Herbert Hofmann Prize, and Amber prize at Amberif Award.
‘Frozen Moment’ pieces are a lot about feelings of nostalgia, of a moment in time. In my work, I was looking for materialization of these abstract matters. I based it on associations and feelings. After a period of research, I came up with my own material that the pieces are made of. This material has two main compounds: polymer, that is light and transparent, just like ‘a moment’ and crushed marble, that creates an illusion of a solid stone which I associate with a feeling of nostalgia.
In the beginning of crafting each piece, material is hot and dynamic but in a while it turns still. Like a metaphor of a moment becoming a memory. When looking at my works, people often are saying that they look like ice or unknown minerals.
I question traditional approaches and instead of valuable jewels I celebrate the idea behind the material. That’s why for the rear of the brooches and other supporting details I use valuable metals like gold, gold plated silver and titanium.
In this project, I created more than 200 hundred pieces. I then selected 21 and crafted them into the jewelry.

NIGHTLIGHT SKIN  STATEMENT
« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the races/ cultures/ subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to create his signature, by engraving, pouncing and printing, he creates a new dimension to the material.
After researching different kinds of sub-and material-cultures/ religion/ races he started to experiment with skins. By confronting those materials together, we can translate it as an extension between all human society.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self- expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference between the sexes/ humans/ religions and cultures.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. »

Strong creation that encountered SUCCESS : in 2012 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents his works, together with some other students, at SIERAAD 2012 Amsterdam, we saw his works at Marzee Graduate show 2012 AND 2013, an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2014 (« Lights ON/Lights OFF » 3 stations Galerie, Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2015 (« Oscure sacrifices« , together with Jorge Manilla, at 3STATIONS,  Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2016 (« Trans-it » – 3STATIONS,  Munich), has been selected  for TALENTE 2016, Munich, he is presented at AUTOR 2016 (the International Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucarest, Romania) ……

During SCHMUCK 2016 : EXPO ‘BRACELETS FOR PAUL & WILLEM’ – 3stations, Munich (DE) – 26-28 fevr. 2016

BRACELETS FOR PAUL & WILLEM (Gallery Ra)

Opening:  Thursday 25th February  3pm-7 pm

Students of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

 

‘FOR EACH A BRACELET’

As a sequel to ‘Ring for the Lords’ (Walter Van Beirendonck and Marnick Smessaert), ‘Jewels for the Ladies’ (Marjan Unger and Anita Evenepoel), ‘Brooches para las Chicas’ (Chequita Nahar and Valeria Vallarta Siemelink), ‘Mary Ted Noten’  (Ted Noten and Clemence-Marie van Lieshout), this year ‘For Each a Bracelet’ was the 5th edition of an ongoing jewellery project by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. Students of the Bachelor course at the Jewellery Design & Silversmithing department were asked to design bracelets for Paul Derrez and Willem Hoogstede. (Gallery RA Amsterdam)

The consideration to give this assignment was mainly motivated by the minimal offer of contemporary styled bracelets. As an additional difficulty Paul & Willem operated as a condition that both bracelets had to differ from each other but still had to look like a ‘couple’.
After an exciting and instructive glimpse into their private collection our students had to get started with their different approaches as result.

During SCHMUCK : EXPO ‘Unbearable Lightnesses’ – 84GHz, Munich (DE) – 26-28 Fevr. 2016

Unbearable Lightness

a solo show by Federica Sala

Alchimia is proud to say that “Unbearable Lightnesses” by recent graduate Federica Sala will be on view during the Schmuck Jewellery Week 2016, an exhibition featuring her Alchimia MFA collection “True Lies. A collection of Oxymorons”, together with new pieces realized for the occasion

 Opening 26.02 from 18:00 to 22:00

Unbearable Lightnesses

Imagine to wake up and to see everything different than what you knew. The appearance of the surroundings is exactly the same, but no more the feeling of it. Everything becomes suddenly worthless but meaningful, raising an awareness of a reality fragile and heavy at the same time. There’s a new and indefinable tension between certain and uncertain. It’s a thrill that brings you on the brink of a precipice over nothing and everything. Take your time to stay suspended in this pure and perfect balance. Keep as long as possible this vertigo feeling with you to magnify your experience of life. Welcome to the world of the Unbearable Lightnesses.

There’s a reality to discover, in which everything is possible and looks exactly the opposite of what we know. Our superficial perception is building a world of illusions in which appearance has become the only truth. I want to raise doubts, creating pieces that defy the laws of Reality and seem to belong to another possible world. All the uncertainties are turned into delicate jewellery pieces that once on the body draw the wearer’s attention, sharing their fragility with the reality we’re living. My pieces want to make people change their perspective, generating a much more gentle and sensitive perception of themselves and of the surroundings as a consequence. Federica Sala

True Lies. A Collection of Oxymorons wants to question our perception of reality, inspired by Plato’s thoughts on how “reality is just a defective projection of our limited way of perceiving”*. Strong in look but extremely fragile in essence, the jewellery pieces encourage us to reflect about the inextricable co-dependency of opposites, and of how our existence might be determined by the limits we set for ourselves. Glass and stone become one entity growing from each other via a new and experimental technique developed by the artist in years of research on the island of Murano, world-famous for its artisanal glass production.
True Lies are impossible structures that point us towards the fragility of the reality we know, by sharing with us just one of the possible variations of it.
Federica Sala is one of the significant figures of a rising generation of Italian jewellery artists. Her practice is based on a continuous experimentation on the properties and qualities of materials, with a particular interest in glass and organic forms, grounded in a strong theoretical research. With this new collection Federica Sala introduced a unique approach in combining different materials such as metal, glass and gemstones. One of its pieces was nominated for the prestigious Stanislav Libenský Award. (Alchimia blog)

Federica Sala (b. 1986 Italy, lives and works in Milan) holds an MFA in Contemporary Jewellery and Body Ornament from Alchimia in Florence (2015) tutored by the Mexican jewellery artist Jorge Manilla, and a MA in Fashion Design from the Politecnico in Milan (2011) tutored by the Italian anthropologist Eleonora Fiorani and the Italian artist Giorgio Vigna. While studying in Alchimia she was mentored by International artists as Peter Bauhuis and Ruudt Peters. Her work is deeply based on a scientific approach to materials that she manipulates to create new delicate jewellery sculptures that due to their fragility capture all the attention and sensibility of the wearer.  From 2010 to 2012 she has been the assistant of Giorgio Vigna with whom she kept on studying glass and its properties, travelling to Murano to learn new techniques.  Her recent Master Project “True Lies. A collection of Oxymorons” has been nominated for the Stanislav Libensky Award 2015 with an exhibition at the Glass Museum in Prague.

Fabrizio Tridenti represents a sculpturally oriented aesthetic language in jewellery. Looking
for inspiration in industrial and technological surroundings his work demonstrates a complex combination of the typical mediterranean consciousness of antique history and presence with modern times and contemporary necessities. He „translates“ this passage into affascinating objects and abstract constructivist ornaments

Annea Lounatvuori is a jewellery designer currently living and working in Berlin and a 2015 Jewellery Design graduate from the Lahti University of Applied Sciences. In addition to running her brand PONY Jewelry for the past four years, she has worked together with institutions and organisations and sees her work as jewellery designer very widely. Her passion lies in visual arts and music. She likes to observe daily life but is also curious about escaping from it.
Annea Lounatvuori`s first solo exhibition in the gallery Vernon is a continuation of her work from the 2015 collaborative exhibition Time Perception. In Time Perception Vol.II she will be getting deeper and closer to her passion of working with horse hair through the means of contemporary jewellery. Textures and surfaces determine her approach to the visual composition.

 Christine Jalio - Past, Loss, Future 7', Christine Jalio 2015, brooch, Silk Clay and silver: Christine Jalio – Past, Loss, Future 7′, Christine Jalio 2015, brooch, Silk Clay and silver
Christine Jalio (1978) is extremely fascinated by the human psyche and the emotions and reactions that are part of it. She is intrigued by asceticism, old age and sensitivity. Her starting point is always an emotion to which she strives to find the correct combination of materials, shapes and colours. The “Loss” collection is a continuum of her earlier “Past, Loss, Future” collection which tells the story of aging and life before and after big turning points in life. In this new collection she has been concentrating on personal loss, sadness, and loneliness; on what an individual goes through emotionally when loosing someone loved. The main material she uses is still Silk Clay, but in addition she has been experimenting with other materials such as resin, acrylic and plaster this year.

 Wiebke Pandikow - Necklace from the 'Tropaeolum'-series,  2015, recycled plastic bags and wood: Wiebke Pandikow – Necklace from the ‘Tropaeolum’-series,  2015, recycled plastic bags and wood
Wiebke Pandikow studied Jewelry Design in Lahti, Finland and now lives and works as a jewelry artist in Helsinki. She has been working with plastic bags since 2014. Without the ubiquitous plastic, our civilization could hardly have become what it is today, but at the same time it is an immense burden on the environment. Especially plastic bags are an obvious symbol for mindless consumerism and a throw-away society. This makes them so interesting for Wiebke to work with: to create from them textures and structures that recall forms of a natural world that we have set ourselves apart from. What was living organisms thousands of years ago, then became oil, then became plastic, now is returned into forms that resemble living plants once more. In our culture, plastics are commonplace, invaluable yet insignificant. For this artist, they bear the possibility of beauty.

Hatara Project, Time Perception VOL.2 #28 - 'Come', Helmi Lindblom 2015, brooches, mixed media, picture Ninni Vidgren: Helmi Lindblom   ‘Come’, 2015, brooches, mixed media, picture Ninni Vidgren
Helmi Lindblom is fascinated by the beauty of oddity.  
The jewelry series Come is made to mimic the object that awakens the child within us. Come is a series of brooches and necklaces that invites you to come and step closer maybe even touch. Series is inspired by a plant that consists of two cactuses crafted together by man.The combinations are made purely for aesthetic reasons regardless of the health of the plant. With this series Helmi recreates the feeling that the crafted cactus evokes in beholder: triggering a childlike curiosity and excitement based purely on the bizarre aesthetics of the plant.

Melina Lindroos  'Hiding Places',  2015, brooches, mixed media: Melina Lindroos  ‘Hiding Places’,  2015, brooches, mixed media
Melina Lindroos is a jewelry artist located in Helsinki. Themes that she feels especially drawn to are places, time and people’s inner lives. Melina is a listener and a searcher. Her approach could be seen as a life long journey, which lifts up bits of what she sees and what she wants to see, where she is coming from and where she is headed. « My series Hiding places lifts up the importance of shelter related to safety. These brooches are made through a slow meditative process in a comforting space. » says Melina.
The tender series of brooches invites the viewer to peek inside and hold them.

Ginta Zabarovska   'Home',  2014, necklace, silver plated brass, wood, plexiglas, aluminium: Ginta Zabarovska   ‘Home’,  2014, necklace, silver plated brass, wood, plexiglas, aluminium
Ginta Zabarovska (born 1989) graduated bachelor (2013) and master (2015) programs in the Art Academy of Latvia metal design department. While studying she actively participates in various exhibitions and competitions.
The artist draws her inspiration in traveling and by contacting with interesting personalities. As an important source of impact in the artist’s activities she considers studies at the Art Academy of Strasbourg in 2012/13. Due to the semester spent in France, the artist has found a growing interest in contemporary jewelry history and now continues her studies in the Art Academy of Latvia as a PhD student working on jewellery art history in Latvia during the post soviet period. While creating design for new jewelry pieces Ginta doesn’t spend long hours preparing sketches or technical drawings. Rather she prefers to work in the material; the idea gradually crystallizes in the working process. From a variety of experimental materials jewelry models are created searching for their compatibility with one another. The artist is bound by various types of graphic lines and delicacy in the plane so she fits these values in three dimensional pieces – they become jewelry.
Gintas jewelry theme for the exhibition Time Perception VOL.2 is home. As Ginta is repeatedly working in Strasbourg for a longer period she find’s the feelings of home and affiliation an inspiration for her work.
