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.

“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”.

« Tutto nasce dal disegno, dal dare senso ad un colore, ad un segno per creare forme che diventano oggetti indossabili, gioielli espressioni della mia emozione: questa è la mia ricerca. Amo le forme pulite, le architetture contemporanee, ricerco pulizia formale, l’armonia fra gli spazi, la luce, i volumi, mentre creo strutture che dialogano con il corpo, perché un gioiello deve essere prima di tutto un oggetto indossabile. Cerco il colore nei suoi contrasti, ma specialmente nella sua matericità che diviene elemento fondamentale di dettaglio. La preziosità del gioiello non sta più nel materiale, ma nell’idea e nel messaggio che questo trasmette. »

« Negli anni ho coltivato la passione per la pittura, informale segnica, materica, dove il colore o un segno rappresentano un’emozione o particolare stato d’animo. Ecco, cercavo qualcosa di analogo anche in oreficeria e l’ho trovato utilizzando le tecniche del Niello, la Granulazione o le ossidazioni in modo pittorico, informale. Un utilizzo che cambia l’aspetto dei gioielli e li rende unici. »

  »Nei miei gioielli voglio proiettare anche la mia consapevolezza del loro processo di attuazione, cristallizzando le fasi della trasformazione della materia di cui sono fatti per evidenziare uno dei passaggi del loro divenire e scoprire l’armonia e l’equilibrio presenti in ogni fase in cui la materia, misteriosamente, prende forma seguendo quelle leggi che ne regolano la sua struttura, partecipe della realtà di tutte le cose del mondo che sono in costante e continua trasformazione. Osservando poi, una forma colorata, non provo solamente una emozione visiva perché il colore appartiene prima al dominio dell’inconscio e successivamente a quello della ragione e, nel prendere forma esprimendo le sue sonorità, diventa una percezione globale capace di comunicare alla nostra intera essenza. »

« Credo che un gioiello debba essere innanzitutto un qualcosa che ti porta altrove, un po’ come un viaggio improvviso, qualcosa che ti alleggerisce e ti sbalordisce allo stesso tempo. Con una forma che ti porta felicemente da un’altra parte rispetto a dove eri sicuro di andare o che ti allieta con un’ironia inaspettata.
Amo i vuoti che danno spazio al pensiero, che ti accolgono, i contrasti cromatici e delle forme, le superfici materiche, le ombre che si creano e che cambiano a seconda dei punti di vista e della luce.«

Sergio e Stefano Spivach 2016 – opal ring
« Il segreto della lavorazione dell’opale si basa sulla profonda conoscenza del grezzo, che permette di riconoscerne le qualità e l’impiego più adatto.�Essa è esclusivamente manuale e non potrebbe essere altrimenti, perché ogni grezzo d’opale viene scelto per la propria unicità.�Nelle diverse fasi della lavorazione, ad ogni gesto, ad ogni passaggio viene dedicato il tempo necessario, senza forzature. La cura con cui viene seguito ogni dettaglio è assoluta, così come l’attenzione e la capacità di adattarsi ad ogni grezzo sono un distillato di esperienza e passione. »

« I gioielli di Yoko Takirai e Pietro Pellitteri sono espressione di nuovi concetti di spazio. Una pluralità di percorsi animano i suoi gioielli e celano per questo spesso qualcosa d’inaspettato. Le collane, glie anelli, gli orecchini sia nelle forme tridimensionali che in quelle lineari, esprimono un movimento e un’emozione inattesa finche` non li si indossa. Talvolta enigmatici nelle loro forme, i suoi gioielli si svelano nel momento dell’incontro con il corpo, rivelando una leggerezza, un’eleganza e una sinuosità estremamente femminile. E questo a dispetto anche delle linee geometriche utilizzate in alcune collezioni. La sua ricerca, riesce ad arrivare a delle forme pure e ad armonizzare eleganza e confort. Oggetti finemente elaborati perseguiti grazie ad una dedizione alla ricerca di laboratorio determinata di cui possiede la padronanza tecnica che consente di trasferire una emozione filtrata dai movimenti e le cui forme semplici e pulite rimangono senza nessuna cosa di troppo. Finemente lavorati certamente, questi gioielli, in un sereno tentativo – riuscito – raggiungono uno stato di purezza, si elevano in qualità. »

EXPO ‘FLOW by Anna Norrgrann’ – OHMYBLUE!, Venezia (IT) – 29 Avril-15 Mai 2016

FLOW by Anna Norrgrann     OHMYBLUE is pleased to host the solo exhibition of the Swedish artist Anna Norrgrann

April 29th 2016 – 6.00 PM

FLOW by Anna Norrgrann   April 29th 2016 - 6.00 PM  OHMYBLUE is pleased to host the solo exhibition of the Swedish artist Anna Norrgrann.:

We are glad to present « FLOW » by Anna Norrgrann.
I’m attracted to the qualities in different kinds of metal that make them perform in various ways, depending on the treatment. I see my work as collaboration between these qualities in the material and my own technical skills. Im searching for the unexpected and aiming to set up a poetic jewellery show speaking to spectators senses rather the to the intellect.
In this exhibition Anna Norrgrann will present both works from her newest project A Flow within and a Flight from a Standard Size and also from the previous and on going project, Impulse Palette.

« The Flow within and Flight from a Standard Format, your most recent collection of work, tackles the commonplace paper size A4 [a European sheet that measures 8.27 x 11.69 inches.—ed.]. What is it about this subject that drew you in?
Anna Norrgrann: In a way, this project is a continuation of my previous work about creating spaces, the frame, and how you choose size and shape. A4 is something we take for granted, almost like something we think is given by nature, but it is also made up. As I thought more and more about this shape, its meaning grew and I discovered new intellectual aspects to it.
I think it’s interesting how thinking and doing come together: When I started to work with A4-sized sheets of metal in my hands, new thing added to my understanding of the shape and my own relationship to it. In the same way that children play to understand the grownup world, I think making may sometimes have the same influence on the understanding of a subject, even though I wouldn’t draw a strong line between craft and play; craft is work. 
I then wanted to investigate what would happen if A4 were put on the human body as a piece of jewelry, outside its natural context, if we then would look at it differently. »

Una bella intervista di Art Jewelry Forum ad Anna Norrgrann, in occasione della sua prossima mostra « FLOW » che inaugurerà prossimamente ad Ohmyblue. // So very happy to share with you this great interview by Olivia Shih for ART JEWELRY FORUM to Anna Norrgrann about her upcoming show « FLOW » at OHMYBLUE

« Anna Norrgrann, an emerging Swedish jewelry artist, is already making waves as the 2015 Graduate of the Year at Klimt02 and by exhibiting her collection of deceptively simple jewelry in the Netherlands, Spain, and China. In this interview, we talk about Anna’s favored medium of anodized aluminum, and transforming a mistake into a method. »

« Olivia Shih: You recently graduated from the HDK Academy of Design and Crafts, in Gothenburg, after studying with Karin Johansson. How has this education influenced the way you work and the work itself?
Anna Norrgrann: I think the education has made me more self-reliant in my work and made me trust my guts more, and this I am very grateful for. At HDK you are given a lot of freedom to explore and experiment and in many ways choose your own way to work. This freedom hasn’t always been easy to handle, especially not in the beginning, but in the long run it has had the good result and effect of helping me become a professional jewelry artist. »

« Anodized aluminum appears to be your favored choice of medium. What possibilities do you see in aluminum in place of traditional precious metals?
Anna Norrgrann: I started working with aluminum just as a trial and then I realized there was something intriguing and challenging in this everyday metal, not only as a sketching material, but in itself. As I worked with the metal more and more, many possibilities appeared. For example I discovered the advantage of coloring the aluminum with the anodizing technique, or how I could transform the surface of the metal to make the color appear different. The low-density process gave me the possibility to work in a bigger scale; meanwhile, the anodizing process makes the surface very strong and this also enabled me to work with thin sheets of aluminum.
Let me put it like this: I did not expect as much from aluminum as from precious metals, and I think that was something that made me curious. »

« At times subtle and at times striking, color plays an essential role in your work and evokes a range of emotions. How did your relationship with color evolve?
Anna Norrgrann: I’m experimenting with color and because I don’t come from a painting background, I don’t have too much respect for color. I believe this is not a disadvantage. To me it’s a representation of moods, feelings, and fascination, among other things. Using the anodizing technique the way I do requires focus and quick decisions and it’s a great way to capture reflections and impulses. Sometimes when a certain color combination appears, I travel in time, remembering something I have forgotten. This process has a lot to with presence and sometimes the presence is very colorful and sometimes it’s monochrome. «

« « The color flows in the forged surface and together with the format it evokes landscape, feelings and memories. Known and unknown.
A4, in this work, is meant to be worn on the body. I let it become a piece of jewelry with simple methods, drilling a hole, threading a string, tying a knot. When something normal to us is put in a new context or wrong context, it might be the first time we actually see it. » Anna Norrgrann

Anna Norrgrann works and studied in Gothenburg, Sweden and took her master degree in jewellery art at HDK, School of Design and Crafts 2015.
