EXPO ‘Swedes and Belgian Blues’ – Gallery Four, Göteborg (SE) – 2 Sept.-1er Oct. 2016

Swedes and Belgian Blues

Four Gothenburg, Sweden

Opening: September 2nd, 17-21

FOUR - Swedes and Belgian Blues

Chocolate, beer and Jean-Claude Van Damme, waffles, the European parliament and Brussels sprouts. Sadly enough people probably also associate Belgium with terror and cattle with breeding problems.
When we think of Belgium we think of jewellery! Not only of the diamonds in Antwerp, but predominantly of the eminent art jewellery scene. Belgium has some of the most famous contemporary jewellery schools, – galleries and – artists. Playful, thought provoking and with an elegant confidence, the art jewellery culture is vibrant and powerful.
Galerie Beyond (formerly Beyond Fashion) is situated in the central parts of Antwerp and has been run by Karin De Buysere and René Darmont for 15 years. The work of the artists that the gallery represents has a conceptual strength and challenges the traditional perception of what jewellery is. The connection to the lively fashion- and art field is unmistakable while classic goldsmithing seams more distant.
The exhibition ”Swedes and Belgian Blues” is a co-operation between Galerie Beyond and Four, showing work by 5 Belgian and 5 Swedish artists. Sweden is also a well-known country in the international jewellery world and we also have an influential fashion scene. Are there any similarities? Are there any differences? To connect a certain aesthetic or a style to a nationality might be impossible in a society where the global art scene is only a browser away. But is there something of a local culture? Swedes and Belgian Blues will be shown in Antwerp in January 2017.

« Since I was a kid I have had a strong interest in animals, especially fish and birds. I love their shape, their movements and the pattern of the feathers and scales, their bodies, faces and exceptional behaviour. The pieces on show at « Swedes and Belgian Blues » are made of plastics collected from garbage containers and ditch-banks. I keep my eyes open when I go to the hairdresser; I search in my friends’ bathrooms and fridges – you have to be observant if you are going to find that perfect jewellery material!

Sanna Svedestedt Carboo-  Building blocks, 2013, necklace made of naturally tanned leather Sanna Svedestedt Carboo -  Building blocks, 2013, necklace made of naturally tanned leatherSanna Svedestedt Carboo works with leather. In this material she create sharp and exact shapes that look heavy but are surprisingly light. Svedestedt Carboo uses old leather shaping techniques and Cuir Bouilli, adding a contemporary expression to a classic craft tradition. With the right touch, boiling hot water and quite a lot of stubbornness, the leather is transformed into the desired form. « I am drawn to the combination of controlled shapes and soft organic flow, and the clash that takes place in the meeting of the two. »

bracelets by Tine de RuysserTine de Ruysser - Dollar Bracelets, 2016,  made of banknotes
Paper money came into existence because people did not want to carry their gold around. Through time the relation between money and gold has been close but the connection has changed. Now we are hesitating about having too much money in our wallets but many of us are happy to show wealth, status or image by wearing gold. For this piece banknotes are used as a precious material. The notes are put together to create an object. The banknotes are not damaged, so the object can be taken apart and returned to the monetary value of the materials. Just like precious metals.

 Anneleen Swillen - Weights pending 2, 2016, necklace made of resin, plaster, concrete, cotton, rubber and natural stonesAnneleen Swillen – Weights pending 2, 2016, necklace made of resin, plaster, concrete, cotton, rubber and natural stones
Inspired by the way daily goods are consumed and (re)presented, Anneleen Swillen draws attention to the intrinsic but often unnoticed qualities of everyday objects. Weights, pending is an artistic research into both formal and functional potential of disposable packaging for object and jewellery design.  The necklace is composed of pairs of various pendants that differ in weight, shape and size. Both sides of the necklace can be shifted and scaled in search for a balance – or imbalance – when worn. Carrying these weights as a collection of charms around the neck and shoulders does not go unnoticed for the wearer or the viewer.

« My jewellery is in constant collision between the organic and the rigidly constructed. In this project I wanted to simplify the construction of my jewellery to the greatest extent, and I have been working with old painting techniques to produce light in the darkness. Having previously worked with repetitions of one single form, I have now tried to shape one sprawling piece into a cohesive unit. » – Hanna Liljenberg

Linnéa Eriksson’s work is a reflection of her surroundings. She finds inspiration in pieces of metal or in the feeling of a heavy beat. « It is a combination of traditional jewellery crafts and the modern street expression. »

Supported both by a scientific and empirical observation of the cells and patterns of the living, Arnaud Sprimont investigates an invisible and frightening universe.  The exploration of the strong ties that exist between human being and nature is the heart of his approach and of his will to define himself, in nature and in harmony with it, as microbiotes living in symbiosis with their host.

EXPO ‘True Lies by Federica Sala’ – Gallery Four, Göteborg (SE) – 13 Mai-11 Juin 2016

True Lies by Federica Sala

Four Gothenburg, Sweden opening Saturday, May 14th 12.00 – 16.00h

Federica Sala - True lies*

True Lies by Federica Sala 13May2016 - 11Jun2016 Four Gothenburg, Sweden: (Federica SalaRings: Junk Diamonds, 2015 – Glass, white cubic zirconia, diamonds -Photo by: Federico Cavicchioli

Federica Sala plays with the whimsical nature of glass. The amorphous and fragile material is contrasted by crystalized minerals and connects her work to today’s complex society of recognized science and changing concepts of the world.

 We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. / Pablo Picasso 

Opposites cannot be divided. Glass and stone grow from each other. The boundaries disappear and the different elements become a collection of oxymoron in which everything exists because of its contrary. Glass is contradictive. It has a light delicacy, at the same time it is heavy and raw, it is soft, sharp, solid and liquid.  True Lies are impossible structures that point out the fragility of the reality we know, showing just one of the possible variations of it.

Lauren Tickle newest piece for my upcoming solo show "Is it Legal?" at gallery Four. Lauren Tickle newest piece for my upcoming solo show « Is it Legal? » at gallery Four.


« I first began exploring the subject matter of « value » by wearing U.S. dollar bills in public to question the value we place on material objects. A man told me I would be kidnapped because my one-dollar bills would be mistaken for hundreds; meanwhile, the women on either side of me carried handbags worth thousands. Why did my worn currency prompt such alarm in this bystander, while the unmistakable signal of wealth that is a luxury handbag did not?
I wanted to return to the streets to gain further insight into my objects’ multi-faceted meanings. I don’t approach my chosen medium any differently from how I would approach any other. The same way different metals and stones have unique properties that can be used to artistic effect, so does currency. The medium I use to construct works of art cannot be separated from its social constructs or from the personal experiences each viewer already has with money. This is why my work provokes questions about perceived value, inherent value, and social class.
To explore the question of what it means to wear money, I gave seven brooches from the Increasing Value series to seven individuals. They were tasked with wearing them in their varied everyday lives, and recording their reflections and the reactions and comments of others. What did the works mean?
This exhibition pairs their investigations with my ongoing formal study of Increasing Value as I find new ways to push a dollar bill’s filigrees into new graphic designs and forms. We see a new side of the works, the personal nature, where the interactions are defined by the “wit of the wearer” as much as the objects themselves. We see reflection and interaction on wearable art. We see the strength of the medium’s iconic design. Why have I altered an idol? Is it frivolous? Is it legal? »
The American artist Lauren Tickle is one of the rising stars on the international jewellery scene. In 2014 she was awarded the Talente Special Prize, one of the most prestigious prizes for emerging jewellery artists. The pieces are detailed and show the patience and skilled craft behind her jewellery. Captivating patterns containing thoughts about value, labour and time.

EXPO ‘Tarja Tuupanen: Marbles’ – Gallery Four, Göteborg (SE) – 27 Fevr.- 4 Avril 2015

Tarja Tuupanen : marbles

Opening: Friday Febuary 27th 17.00-21.00 

Lecture: Thursday February 26th, 16.00, HDK Kristinelundsgatan 6-8
The exhibition runs until April 4th

Tarja Tuupanen is a master of stone. Out of agate, granite, marble and quartz she brings out shapes that reveals the raw soul of the stone and tells its history. The work is a sensitive investigation and her love for the material is unmistakable.
The material has always been a raw block of stone, but recently Tuupanen has started to use ready-made marble tableware; a tacky candleholder or saltshaker from the 80s. Industrially made object triggers the creative process. The most interesting things in these stones are man made instead being natural; green stickers, tool marks, stains, wax. The tableware has been used and it has a history of its own with cultural references.
Tuupanen lives and works in Lappeenranta Finland. She has graduated as MFA in 2013 from Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm, Sweden. Tuupanen has exhibited internationally since 1998, the last solo exhibition was in 2012 in Gallery Ida, Tallinn, Estonia. She has been the chairwoman of Finnish Art Jewellery Association between 2005-2012.

OSCURE  SACRIFICE

 Jorge Manilla Obscure sacrifice

By creating  jewellery Jorge Manilla investigates his environment - religion, emotions, relationships and the meaning of life.
Manilla has a professional background as a boxer and butcher. He observes violence and cruelty pragmatic and objective and his jewellery often express a brutal rawness –
The last years the artist  re discovered his love for the black color, wich has been a constant in his life
And since 2010 Manilla translate the rawness of life in materials
For Jorge black relates to the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, and as a result it creates an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world
With his dark forms and shapes he creates a barrier between the meanings of the objects and the outside world
Black implies self-control and discipline, independence and a strong will, and giving an impression of authority and power.
Manilla think that black is the end, but the end always implies a new beginning.
When the light appears, black becomes white, the color of new beginnings
The work of Jorge are beautiful punches that hit the viewer in solar plexus.

 

Opening: Friday January 23 – 17.00-21.00
Special presentation with the artist Friday January 30 17.00-20.00
The exhibition runs until February 21

Thursday January 28 Jorge Manilla makes a lecture at HDK – School of Design and Crafts, for more information mail karin@foursweden.com

« “The emotional element which gives an obsessive value to communal existence is death.” 
George Bataille
In 2010, I  began to work on my series “Only Memories”and “Dust of a Broken Love”, which were inspired by the deepest feelings and fears that we usually avoid, I tried to show with this work the moral and corporeal anatomy of the human soul.
 Since then, I’ve developed series in which I explore the darker side of human beings.
 With series like “Pain”, “Melancholia”, “Contemporary Savagery” and “Morbid Moves” .
I’ve researched  and reflected on  topics such as death, life, love, feelings, emotions in both the psychological and physical aspects of people.                                                                   
With “Oscure Sacrifice” ,  I seek  to confront  elements of  my previous work with a more positive human outlook. Preserving the mystery and abstractness of the dark side, I want to create new  forms that  originate  a feeling of hope.
Shapes and material serve as translators of my thoughts, in my creative process through materials I strive to penetrate in the dark side of the society we live in and then represent an idealized – less  negative image of a society that in the last years has produced mass murders, not only physical but emotional and intellectual.
My latest pieces are images born out of the dream of darkness, of hope or solely my instinct. »  Jorge Manilla

A Fantasy World of Absurd Proportions and Unstable Illusions by Nina Sajet

The jewellery of Nina Sajet creates a fantasy world of absurd proportions and unstable illusions. Like in a fairy-tale, the first impression of beauty and lightness might shift into a more complex image with more weight that could also contain a twinge of discomfort or uncertainty.

“In my world cages turn to rings, birds to pipes, sprouts to pearls. I see each new object and project as part of a new reality” – Nina Sajet

The American artist Amy Tavern’s work often consists of memories, processed and transformed. Reinterpreted by the viewer they become platforms for discussions and new ideas.
I make abstract thoughts concrete and tangible and further alter the memory itself beyond what happens naturally. The pieces are based on memories that are specific to me but the moments and feelings are truly universal. Ultimately, by creating these objects, I preserve my memories, make the fleeting more permanent”  – Amy Tavern
