EXPO ‘Catching Big Fish’ – Beyond Fashion, Antwerp (Belgium) – 25 Avril-22 Juin 2013

Karin Roy Andersson : Catching Big Fish

There is something magnetic with the undiscovered world of the oceans. Frightening, exciting and with the beauty that comes with the tension between these feelings. Welcome to the opening of Catching Big Fish at Beyond Fashion.

Karin Roy Andersson: Catching Big Fish    Artists: Karin Roy Andersson  Management: Karin De Buysere and René Darmont  Place: Beyond Fashion  (Antwerp, Belgium)  25-Apr-2013 - 22-Jun-2013    website: www.beyondfashion.be(Karin Roy Andersson – Bracelets: Catching Big Fish 2013 – Recycled plastics, textile - Photo: Sanna Svedestedt)

« I love fish; their shape, fens and the pattern of the fish scale. I am intrigued by how they move, their bodies and faces and their, in our eyes, exceptional behaviour. In a society where the view on what is normal is still quite conservative, the way some fish species change sex, size and identity gives you a new perspective.
A few years ago I started working with scales making chains of thin silver flakes. Now some of the scales have grown larger and I have added elements of recycled plastics. To me the pieces looks like traces from an intense struggle catching a big fish. When adding the plastic I sadly realized that jumping into the ocean you might be more likely to end up with plastics on your body than scales from a fish.  »

EXPO ‘Arrhythmia ‘ – Beyond Fashion, Antwerp (Belgium) – 14 Mars-20 Avril 2013

Carolina Apolonia: Arrhythmia  

 The heart. Unnoticed but for its consistent beat, it determines whether we live or die. The heart is thrilled when in love, swells with inspiration and good spirits, is flooded by passion and broken by grief.
My work, this collection, is about the resilience of the human heart; its rhythm pulsating with great joy, trouble and adversity. I used natural materials very close to the human skin: leather and parchment. By hand-stitching these materials to silver, I create new structures to be worn almost as an extension of the body; as outward expressions of the rhythms inside.
My mother taught me at a very early age how to stitch. Stitching holds memories of long happy hours working with her. I think I am drawn to its time-consuming, repetitive and meditative nature: it forces me to slow down and gives me a sense of freedom: that I can use the needle to connect and repair anything. Most of the leather I use for these pieces is old and recycled. So are the used book covers. Old and worn-out materials tell stories, they carry tales about how they’ve been cherished or abused. The stitching brings the old materials together, heals them, thus creating new narratives out of old histories.  Carolina Apolonia

EXPO ‘Karen Vanmol: Evolving Habitat’ – Beyond Fashion, Antwerp (BE) – 31 Janv.-9 Mars 2013

Karen Vanmol: Evolving Habitat

EXPO Karen Vanmol evolving habitat

« evolve and change. A city without a little nature works claustrophobic for me, but a nature landscape with no sign of humanity is too quiet for me. Protecting or imitating nature, the use of natural materials in architecture, the restoring of a road surface, accidental strong shapes on a construction site, these things I find very interesting.
On my way though town, I hunt and collect. I always encounter interesting images that I use as an inspiration. In adittion, there is a certain choise of materials and colors, these are strongly influenced by memories. For example the necklaces, furniture in different colors, certain constructions. I make my story and the viewer projects its own story on top of mine.
I always start from my sources of inspiration, with these eyes I look around me. I show viewers how I look at things around me. Next to that I make jewellery and I like to use my tools and try out how materials reacts to them. Eventually I work with materials, and that provides an additional factor.
I find out the properties they possess and how I can edit them and this will count in the final result. Some techniques I use are common and you can find them in your house.
Naturally I tend to work clean and delineated, here I try against it by for example damaging materials. It gets me out of my comfort zone and it bothers me, but at the same time I want to do it.«   Karen Vanmol

EXPO ‘ERGONOMIC TERRITORIES’ – Beyond Fashion gallery, Antwerp (BE) – 25 Oct.-1er Dec. 2012

Classé dans : Belgique (BE),Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Beyond (BE),LOTOCOHO (ES) — bijoucontemporain @ 22:12
Solo Expo ERGONOMIC TERRITORIES by LOTOCOHO
LOTOCOHO is a brand of creation that translates signs into symbols.
Once the landscape and its story has been investigated, like the Atlas by Aby Warburg, we translate them to symbols according to geometric rules (Euclidian or Thiessen polygons).
Translating landscapes and signs into jewellery we have created a collection called Ergonomic Territories.
This collection is based on geology and landscapes, contemporary languages.
Made up of rings, brooches, bracelets and different elements that complement the anatomy.

Ergonomic Territories is an infinite system of creation.
Shaped by an idea that relates nature, the abstract-artificial and a constant game.
It is a field of opportunities where one finds pleasure in learning stories from each « mountain » or its most basic geologic constructions (diamonds-rocks).
Mountains contain unseen stories.
Learning myths and legends through jewelry.
Mountains which are built from their story, mountains of stories.

EXPO ‘Observation/Translation’ – Beyond Fashion gallery, Antwerp (BE) – 6 Sept.-20 Oct. 2012

Classé dans : Amy TAVERN (US),Belgique (BE),Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Beyond (BE) — bijoucontemporain @ 20:10
Solo Exposition « Observation/Translation » by Amy Tavern
I will give a lecture on Wednesday, September 5 in conjunction with the opening of my new solo exhibition at Beyond Fashion. The lecture is at 7pm and I will talk for about 30 minutes. The presentation will include my thoughts on living in Belgium and how it has affected my work as well as a description of my process. I will also give some background information on my career and life before coming to Belgium as a way of introducing myself to my new audience. I won’t have a Powerpoint to lead me through so I will walk around the installation as I talk. It will be a different way for me to present my work but I think it will allow me to be more casual and conversational with attendees. I will have a slide show on my laptop on view so everyone can take a look at my previous work and some process shots for this new work.
If you live in the area and would like to attend (and I hope you will!), please RSVP with me or the gallery. You can send me an email at amy@amytavern.com or to the gallery at beyondfashion@antwerpen.be. You may also call the gallery at +32 +3 2378541

« Observation is the act or instance of noticing. As a resident in a new and foreign place, my power of observation has become important to me in unusual and often unexpected ways. It has also become heightened in a way that allows me to simply see more. Over the course of more than two months I have recorded my daily observations with photographs, drawings, and text, everyday encountering things I have never seen before. These observations are moments between specific inanimate obje
cts and me, and, unbeknownst to them, between other people and me. They are also impressions of the beauty I see in my surroundings, such as the often-gray sky of Belgium or the sense of history preserved in its architecture and urban decay. Finally, they are representations of maps and walks and the work of the Baroque painters.
Translation is a change from one form to another. Also as a resident of a new and foreign place, I translate almost everything I do: language, time, measurement, temperature, currency. At first my ability to translate was slow and challenging, often taxing. Then gradually with practice, the process became quicker until eventually translating was nearly second nature.
My new work focuses on my observations and the way I translate them to tangible objects. I observe, I record, I translate in my mind, I form an opinion. Then I develop an idea for an object and translate it again into a new, physical form. This process and the resulting pieces are how I understand my new home and share the experience with others. Ultimately, they are the reverent manifestations of a personal collection of memories.«  Amy Tavern
