EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Juan HARNIE – Aesthetical Injection(s)

everywhere in december !!! CELEBRITY ???…….

In 2016, he continues his experimentation with a new serie, « Aesthetical Injection » : Designing this collection Juan Harnie used medical materials to create attractive, floral looking jewellery. Juan has always seen beauty in materials that have little to no aesthetical value to others. These materials in particular are usually linked to unpleasant situations like hospitals and doctor visits, but now they are taken out of this context and made into uncanny pieces of jewellery.
Juan got his inspiration from flowers and plants, which always seem to please the eye of the beholder. Even when a plant or flower turns out to be hazardous, poisonous or possibly deadly, at first people will always attribute positive feelings towards seeing them. Contradictory, syringes that are designed to administer medicine and in fact heal people are met with fear, disgust and a general feeling of unease. Using these syringes in colourful, floral pieces of jewellery, mimicking the shape and colour of the ever-so-loved flower, might just make people reconsider their initial feelings towards syringes and see the beauty the designer saw in them.
In addition to the syringes, sterile medical gauze is used either to imprint the silver backs of the pieces or being drenched in coloured polyurethane and moulded into organic sculptured shapes sprouting silverwork and gemstones. This medical gauze once again fulfils its original purpose: being worn on the body and thus soothing an inner ache. »

Materials used for « Aesthetical Injection«  series : syringes, polyurethane, zirconia, brass, silver, gauze, resin

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Barbara PAGANIN at OHMYBLUE

Barbara Paganin  participe à une très jolie exposition, sur « ses » lieux, Venise, dans une galerie plus qu’exquise, OHMYBLUE :

« Selected Stories »   una mostra collettiva di maestri del gioiello contemporaneo italiani.
Opening: Saturday 10 December 2016, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

 
The exhibition Selected Stories at OHMYBLUE focuses on the relationship between bodies of work created in the last years by some of the most relevant Italian contemporary jewelry artists.
This exhibition invites the viewer to experience the different languages that these authors speak, having the chance to witness to a web of interlocking formal decisions and identities.
Every piece of jewelry is an image, a tangible object that one can pick up, put down, look from a distance, caress. Even read. Because these objects and their beauty, their shapes, their strangeness, they tell a story that accompanies us and which we want to possess, participating in the construction of significance by appropriating whatever fragment it feels dear to us.
These pieces of jewelry are lonely architectures, spaces that become ourselves and where we can feel at home, strangely. 
Barbara Paganin, Rami blu, brooch: Barbara Paganin - Rami blu,  brooch  
“Da sempre i vegetali mi affascinano così come l’unicità dell’essere umano. Siamo tutti simili, ma nessuno è uguale all’altro [...] In particolare mi affascinano i cavolfiori nella loro varietà: cavolo rosso, cavolo verza, cavolo rapa, broccoli, cavolfiori, il cavolo romano [...] In forma di foglia, i rilievi e le venature rimandano immediatamente al nostro sistema venoso e linfatico. In forma di fiore, c’è un diretto riferimento all’albero. Del calco mi interessa l’impronta, l’impronta che identifica, segno quindi unico e identificabile”.

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Marion Lebouteiller – Got the blues …..

I «got the blues» with Marion Lebouteiller, again and again … sigh ….

Elle expose actuellement à DAZZLE Exhibitions où l’on peut voir quelques-unes de ses dernières pièces en feutre … BLEU of course !

« Marion explores the relationship between natural and human worlds by combining silver, gold or bronze with natural elements such as mother-of-pearl or felt. …..
I am inspired by my surroundings but also by the Japanese culture and the «Wabi-Sabi» philosophy: the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. I like leaving space to the unexpected and let the materials express themselves.
My techniques include the lost-wax casting and the casting from natural items into silver, gold or bronze but also soldering, hand piercing, traditional chasing techniques
I combine precious and non-precious metals with mother-of-pearl and textiles as I am very interested in the propensity of felt to highlight the coldness and the stiffness of metal.
 All my pieces are handmade, either one-offs or small series, using recycled or Fairmined metals wherever possible, as I am very much into the idea (and the actions) of living on this planet with a minimum impact on the environment and on the life of mining labourers. »

Expérimentation(s), expérimentation(s), & expérimentation(s) !!
D’ailleurs un de ses albums de photos s’intitule « Tests and Experiments » et on dirait que c’est vraiment ça son « leitmotiv », le « truc en plus », ce qui l’éclate ! le matière de prédilection, en tout cas celle autour de laquelle il tourne et retourne, c’est le bois …. le naturel …. auquel, petit à petit, il ajoute des « produits dénaturés » de la « civilisation » (plastiques, goudron, mousse synthétique pour déco, plâtre….)

Here are some « experiments », as an « appetizer » ! ;-)

« “A subject that is beautiful in itself gives no suggestion to the artist. It lacks imperfection.” – Oscar Wilde
In our daily lives we come across many elements that hold a hidden beauty. 
I feel I am rarely attracted by the immediate beauty of nature. It is in its minor flaws, irregularities and asymmetries I find true expression. 
 In my work I create jewelry that can translate this seemingly random nature. I use many organic shapes, and use techniques which allow me to replicate these unique shapes, their natural formations and imperfections, because therein lies their true beauty. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Anne DINAN – nostalgia …

Classé dans : Anne DINAN (US),COUP DE COEUR,DECOUVERTE,email / enamel,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,USA,VIDEO — bijoucontemporain @ 22:47

Anne DINAN

« (My) inspiration is nature and industry combined. What have we done? »

J’ai craqué pour le monde d’Anne Dinan -qui malgré son nom très français, nous vient des USA- il y a quelque temps, et je vous ai montré ses blancs …. au tour de ses bleus, qui m’enchantent !
Mais à part les couleurs, et peut-être plus que la couleur, l’émail cache -et dévoile, comme une photo en train de se développer- des mondes industriels « désuets » -je pense au château d’eau en métal empoussiéré du film « Bagdad Café »-,  des paysages industriels comme abandonnés, rouillés, témoins d’une Amérique empoussiérée, « from Vegas to no way » comme dit la chanson du film  …. des paysages, des visages, surgis du passé ….. séquence émotion ! (SURTOUT en écoutant « I‘m calling you » !!)

« Unknown Relatives”  was based on a series of old portrait photographs found at a family farm in Michigan. Dinan created the 20-piece assemblage using kiln-fired vitreous enamel on copper from digital waterslide transfers »

Anne Dinan is a nationally recognized jewelry and visual artist who attended the School of Museum School of Fine Arts in Boston.
A resident of Exeter, N.H., Dinan has presented her unique and diverse pieces at a number of shows including Alchemy 3, the 2015 Enamelist Society touring exhibition at five New England galleries ; seasonal shows at the Button Factory in Portsmouth, N. H. and Pettengill Farm in Salisbury, Mass; and at
“Myths – Test Drive” in Germany at the 2016 Munich Jewellery Week show (SCHMUCK) .

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Sébastien Carré – De coeur et de tripes …

« Sébastien Carré is a jewelry designer based in France. After studying five years at HEAR, the prestigious Art school of Strasbourg in France, he decides to stay there to keep on working on his organic jewelries. Throughout many exhibits he tries to wake up corporeality and the senses of the spectators.  »

Sébastien Carré -  Viscéral -Sébastien Carré -  Viscéral ………. 7 metres d’intestins ….

Sébastien Carré - Viscéral, 2013  Collier 7 mètres, Cotte de maille Aluminium, coton, lin, soie, cuir 7 meters Necklace, aluminum chainmail, cotton, linen, silk, leather ("+ de 187000 anneaux a la main et deux semaine de broderie intensive=près de 6 mois de travail sur cette pièce" !!): Sébastien Carré - Viscéral (porté), 2013  Collier 7 mètres, Cotte de maille Aluminium, coton, lin, soie, cuir 7 meters Necklace, aluminum chainmail, cotton, linen, silk, leather (« + de 187000 anneaux a la main et deux semaine de broderie intensive = près de 6 mois de travail sur cette pièce » !!)

« The making of these pieces of jewelry is inspired by cell mitosis. The modular process used to produce its shape, and the interactivity of materials chosen, bring forth the idea of a living organism.
The materials I use are picked in order to allow me to work despite the constraints of my disease. (eg: Crohn’s disease) Being able to work outside of the studio was definitely the most important part of this process, and textile became one of the most obvious choices of material to use during my creative process.
I am using this process to create objects to represent parts of the human body (see the seven meter necklace which represents the digestive tract), sometimes to symbolize the concept of the inflammation, or to even question our relationship with our own body and others’.
Even if we can find cathartic meaning in my pieces of jewelry, I consider them more interactive artefacts designed to help you feel your own body and to instigate discussion and thus interpersonal communication. » (Klimt02)

« Pour ma part, je suis dans un autre domaine, celui du bijou d’art, dans lequel la valeur artistique et conceptuelle compte beaucoup. Certains artistes vont même jusqu’à réaliser des bijoux quasi importables. En questionnant le rapport au corps, le bijou d’art quittera ainsi l’espace du musée, d’une galerie, en trouvant un nouvel espace d’exposition, celui du corps, qui n’a jamais connu une telle mise en valeur que dans notre société de l’image. ….. J’ai été diplôme en juin 2014, après 5 ans d’études à la Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin (HEAR) …. C’est également grâce à mon Erasmus à l’Escola Massana de Barcelone, que j’ai réussi à gagner en autonomie » (Les Pulpeuses)

rencontres-sebastien-carré « Quelles sont les matières que tu utilises pour signifier l’organique ?
« Tout peut potentiellement être utilisé, métal, papier, cuir, textile, pierre semi-précieuses… Je cherche cependant des éléments qui me permettent d’amener du sens à mes bijoux. J’ai par exemple utilisé de la pellicule de film pour évoquer les souvenirs responsable de la dépression. Le cuivre est souvent employé pour symboliser l’inflammation car il est traditionnellement employé comme anti-inflammatoire (déjà chez les Aztèques…); L’acier inoxydable me permet de symboliser le monde médical; le nylon évoque quant à lui la présence humaine; et les pierres semi précieuses sont généralement choisies en fonction des théories de Naturopathie qui leurs sont associées. Ma seule constante est désormais de créer la structure de ces bijoux par l’emploi de techniques associées aux textiles sur lesquels je viens appliquer ces différents éléments comme un cancer colonisant un organe. Tout l’intérêt étant de jouer sur la préciosité des matières au niveau de la représentation de la partie malade afin de faire réfléchir sur nos questionnement occidentaux lié à la préciosité. Ainsi j’essaye de montrer que l’on peut trouver du bon et de la beauté dans toute situation (même les pires) parfois en changeant simplement de façon de penser ou en changeant de point de vue. »  (Le Polyèdre – rencontres avec Sébastien Carré)

« Esta linea de joyería textil propone la igualdad entre sexos, ya que siempre que pensamos en un accesorio la referencia principal es femenina.
Quebrar la idea de que un hombre no puede usar un collar y que tampoco estamos acostumbrados a esto , cambiar la visión convencional y que esto no cuestione la sexualidad de quien lo porta.

Estos objetos/collar/cuello, esculturas portables unifican en color pero desestructuran en formas tanto para hombre y mujeres.
De morfología orgánica se ubica alrededor del cuello, toma recorridos irregulares asimétricos donde varia su tamaño y volumen se transforma en engarses textiles haciendo un paralelo con la técnica de joyería tradicional de engarse de piedras y luego termina cruzando texturas.
Partir de concepto de igualdad para reflexionar y cuestionarse como socialmente estamos parados y que nos lleva al prejuicio de la sexualidad y cuanto tiene que ver eso con lo que portamos, lo que usamos, vestimos.
Las estructuras sociales duras históricas que nos heredan maneras viciadas de percibir, de vivir la realidad, nos condicionan, limitan a poder liberar el deseo de elegir vestirnos sin condicionamientos hombres mujeres, heterosexuales, homosexuales y bisexuales.
Esta colección tiene como objetivo la resolución estética de piezas textiles distinguidas, desestructuras, únicas e irrepetibles pero también generar un pregunta referente a la igualdad y a la libertad de elección sea de cualquier tipo. »

 » 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. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Burcu SULEK in a deep deep BLUE

Classé dans : Burcu SULEK (TR),COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,MADEN (TR),Turquie (TR) — bijoucontemporain @ 22:15

Burcu SULEK

I discovered her and her work some « JOYA »s ago ….. in 2013, exhibited with the members of MADEN school …. LOVE at first sight for her BLUE jewels …. and impressed by this … SOLAR person !

And this impression of « SOLAR » remains, when you go for searching information to her website ! First thing, I go to the page « about », and there, usually, very complex, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic explanations … With Burcu Sulek ?
EVIDENCE, SIMPLICITY, and a BIG, CLEAR, SOLAR SMILE, with these words :
« I am taking great pleasure in creating what I love. « 
Directly, a SMASH, a SPLASH, a WAOUW of simplicity, happiness, beauty !!! For me, mixed with the souvenir of these BLUE jewels, in one word, MEDITERRANEAN !!
Then, you go to the page « works » … and there, the same splash of evidence, with the different titles :  « caves of HOPE », « HOLES of EMPTINESS »,  « EMPTINESS », « JUST »,  « BLOOMING HAPPINESS » and  « REBORN » (with no dates, nowhere, so, no way!,  you can’t « psycho-analyse » these titles …. ;-) …) So you search, as we say in french « on cherche la petite bête » (translated by « being nit-picky », « nitpicking »), « emptiness » ??? ha ha ….. some sadness ? some bad period ? and no, even there, in these « holes » or in this « emptiness » the sun arrives with its light and clarity : « Sometimes you find absolute fullness in sole emptiness », or « In this world of trickery, emptiness is what your soul wants… » …… Holes can be there, emptiness too, but they are just the « dark face » necessary to make the « bright face » exist ….
And this sentence « We all have hopes, plant yours in the caves » is SO full of HOPE !!! so simple, so gentle, so EVIDENT  !!

And then ? Well, It made me feel so safe, so fine ….. that just no need of jewels !!!  ;-)

So give us just a SPLASH of PLEASURE with my first love of BLUE !
