Artist list  :   Nevin Arig – Sara Gackowska –  Celina Gram — Jonathan Hens – Dimitar Stankov

  from Jonathan Hens :    LONG LIVE THE KINK  part 2 collection

« The new work from the serie LONG LIVE THE KINK of   Jonathan Hens  reflects with stunning ability the diversity and unity of our realities. The individual designs, consisting of distinct structures and leather materials, refers to the structures that make human beings versatile. The notion that each individual is an individual in his or her own right that differs from others through superficial and hypodermic characteristics becomes apparent. However, subtly Hens’ work forces us to look beyond. Touching upon the underlying notions in his previous collection where he made us question the differences between sexes, this collection makes us question the importance of dissimilarities. Hens’ most recent collection compells to focus on the unity rather than the diversity of individuals. In designing LONG LIVE THE KINK he started out with one geometrical shape and slightly tweaked and bended the particular form. The sublime interpretation of reality cunningly brings perspective into the dualistic worlds of the other and the self. Leaning towards the tabula rasa concept, he shows the oneness of human beings together in one nation.Becoming typical of Hens’ work is the insights he leaves us with regarding our world and how we choose to perceive it. «   – by Agnes Sabitova

EXPO ‘‎Hidden curriculum’ – during the MJW 2018 – Atelier Cepissakova, Munich (DE) – 8-11 Mars 2018

 

« ‎Hidden curriculum »

Contemporary jewelry exhibition inside   Munich Jewellery Week  (7–10 March 2018)

Popeye loves Olive  Art Space hosts an exhibition platform during Munich Jewellery Week by inviting a group of 14 Greek artists to meet the Mexican artist Jorge Manilla and to develop a joint project on Hidden Curriculum, Identity and Proxemics. 

Opening: Thursday 08/03/18 @19.00 – 22.00

Popeye loves Olive‎ - Hidden curriculum*

Participating Artists:    Jorge Manilla – Aggelika Diplari – Aggelos Konstantakatos – Anna Vlahos – Antria Prasinou – Artemis Valsamaki – Erato Kouloubi – Ioli Livada –  Joanna Grigoriou – Liana Pattihis – Marina Zachou – Niki Stylianou – Xenia Deimezi – Yakinthi Oikonomou – Yiota Vogli

 

 » Hidden Curriculum*
The Hidden curriculum consists of teaching items which are not officially intended and developed by school and educational system. The educational authorities use the concepts of “hidden curriculum” and “invisible curriculum” to explain teachings and attitudes influenced by these implicit factors (Alavi, Abdollahi and Ahmadi, 2008).
With the intention to explore behaviors, perspectives and attitudes, that the participants adopt during their learning process, in an independent way outside of an institution.
For this exhibition we have decided to take the idea of a Hidden Curriculum and explore in a free but very careful way, issues like gender roles, morals, social class, stereotypes, cultural expectations and personal language.
According to the Austrian artist and architect Hundertwasser, we have five layers of skin. From the innermost to the furthest from the centre: Epidermis, Clothes, Houses, Identity and Earth. Each layer (skin) defines and interacts with the whole human entity.
According to Proxemics, we arrange objects and ourselves in relation to space as it makes us feel more or less comfortable. Individuals naturally maintain a separation that relates to environmental and cultural factors but also to social and interpersonal situations. One could say that proxemics is separated in Intimate, Personal, Social and Public Space/Skins. Moreover, all layers of Space/Skins interact, affect and define each other.
Most importantly, it should be underlined; the above studies claim that Identity is created by social interplay.
According to history, Jewelry serves as a primary means of conveying cultural values. Traditionally, jewels were seen as sacred and precious; however, from the beginning of the 20th century, jewelry has started to be objectified. Jewelry as a result of all human social interactions becomes a product of non-verbal communication.
The process, through which a piece of jewelry is created, is totally connected with the cultural and social background of each jewelry artist. From the selection of materials to the final product, it is needed that all different possibilities and perspectives of this act to be explored.
On the other hand, the viewer interacts both with the maker and the wearer of a piece of jewelry; as jewelry narrates stories and communicates feelings and Identities. 
By comparing fourteen Greek jewelry artists’ work in opposition to that of a Mexican artist and educator; this exhibition seeks to collect information on how hidden curriculum, proxemics and identity are expressed through jewelry.
What kind of space occupies the work of each artist? What kind of skin it represents? «

« My main subject is about private space. In my pieces I create 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. »

 » For people as well as for jewellery, everything begins with the skin – the surface, the countless surface possibility in jewellery pieces depending on the material and workmanship. We can try to look through the skin/surface and try to interpret with those pieces. On display are the latest works of 11 jewellery artists and 1 painter from Munich.  »
Every perception begins with the skin, the surface. For people as well as for jewellery. Here, in jewellery, there are countless surfaces – smooth or rough, monochrome or multicoloured, porous or impermeable, chaotic or orderly, depending on the material and workmanship. There are no limits to the diversity of haptic sensations. Likewise with the jewellery in the exhibition Die denkende Haut [The Thinking Skin]. Are we able to look through skin, though, through the surface, inwards, to the essence of the jewellery? Can we do it with people? Neither is a simple undertaking! But we can try to interpret, to read them.
For example, with Julia Obermaier, who cuts, polishes and assembles sculptural-architectural forms from agate, the stone that emerged from volcanic nodules over millions of years. The immortality of nature and the finiteness of man are brought together in an allegorical juxtaposition. Or with Carina Shoshtary, who takes graffiti, dissects it and recomposes it in her jewellery. Messages are thus preserved and interpreted anew. Freedom of thought is manifested in jewellery. The concrete necklaces by Samira Götz only appear to be heavy; they are, however, surprisingly light. They function as burden and liberation at once. The last example is Merlin Klein, whose ‘ash jewellery’ simultaneously stands for grief, solace and remembrance.
The works on display constitute not just surface, technique and workmanship; they are concepts, with a message for the beholder. They allow one to gaze deep into the essence of the individual, nature and the universe; this is jewellery and art, or art and jewellery, or only jewellery, or just art, wearable on the skin or an object in a vitrine, ultimately simply beautiful and an eternally exciting process when one allows the ‘skin to think’. / Dirk Allgaier, February 2018
« Thinking is not only an abstract act of intellectual reckoning, but also a kind of responsive intelligence permeating our bodies and navigating us through our daily entanglements on the physical, emotional and creative planes. In this sense, dance is an embodied reflection on space; and the mind of an angler is in the hand curled around the fishing rod. Similarly, the movement of fingers on the keyboard of a piano is a visible extension of the musical thinking within the body of a performer, and the same fingers on the keyboard of a computer reproduce the dictates of a cerebral algorithm.
Between anything that touches and anything that is touched – be it an inanimate object or a living body – is the skin, which not only sends out signals like lustre, youth and freshness fromwithin, but also absorbs impulses from without, to be analysed, interpreted and answered in due time. The skin is an interface, revealing an inside and effecting responses in the environment; or thinking an outside by opening up and responding to stimuli. And when it becomes a foundation and support for structures of metals, stones, pearls, etc., then it draws in the elements of the world into its own cycle of impression and expression, transforming them into jewellery and enabling the enhancement of an adorned body.
But, owing to its intermediary position between an inside and an outside, the skin is afflicted with the same mysterious hybridity that characterises all limits and thresholds. Is it still the body? Or is it already part of the environment? Is it still an organ covering all other organs, a spread of epidermis capable of being seen, touched, injured? Or is it already a material, formed to a shield, a mask, an ornament? Or is it neither the one nor the other, but simply an immaterial and intermediary space of difference?
Such questions cannot be quite avoided in the familiar “practices of appearance” like the fine and the applied arts. They are also at the root of the constellation of jewellery and painting that are being presented in this exhibition. »  / Thinking skin by Pravu Mazumdar

Born in Germany and based in Brussels, Belgium, Ute van der Plaats has worked as a jewelry designer since 2009. In addition to contemporary jewelry, she has a passion for graphic design and ceramics, and her latest collection combines these three disciplines. A few years ago, she discovered porcelain—the white gold—and fell in love with it. Since then, this pure material has become the starting point in the creation process of her jewelry collections. She is attracted by its translucent white color, the fragile appearance that belies a surprisingly solid character, and the almost sensual texture of unglazed porcelain. By integrating different materials, such as 3D-printed ornaments and digitally designed images, into handcrafted porcelain creations, she translates traditional jewelry concepts into contemporary pieces

#MunichJewelleryWeek2017 – EXPO (37) – « Duality of Presence » – Super+Centercourt Gallery, Munich (DE) – 8-14 Mars 2017

(37)  « Duality of Presence« 

Opening Reception: March 8, 6pm

runs 08.03–14.03

Duality of Presence, is a curatorial collaboration between American Professors of Jewelry/Metalsmithing Kerianne Quick and Jess Tolbert.
The exhibition brings together contemporary jewelers and metalsmiths working in the United States, who use specific material and form to tell stories about place, histories, and conveyance.

(37) Duality of Presence

dualityofpresence  takes an explicit look at a generation of American contemporary makers united by the urge to connect to things and the world. As we grapple with the legacy of [alternative] material use in art jewelry in the age of globalization – we are united in the urgency our works express to identify with and bring insight to what it means to be in the world now. This exhibition was born from a noticeable shared concern and strategy expressed in the work of curators, colleagues, and other makers in the field. Within the field of contemporary art jewelry many reject or limit the use of precious materials associated with conventional jewelry in favor of non-traditional materials, focusing on a formal expression that may be conceptual in some way, or simply aesthetic. However some contemporary practitioners, including the artists in this exhibition, are mining material – calling upon origins, sourcing, histories, and/or supply chain information to embed value into the materials they select and use. This excavation is a powerful tool for authenticating and enhancing their underlying concepts. 

Recognizing this shared methodology as an important movement in American contemporary art jewelry and metalsmithing, Duality of Presence defines and explores those engaged with ‘material specificity’ in their making. We position the term ‘material specificity’ as a way of looking towards how material communicates complex and distinct narratives. Thinking of materials as active agents in the creation of meaning pushes past the notion that they are meaningless conduits and asserts a more substantive role; as conveyors of information, bearers of histories, and assemblers of discourses. Material Specific Artists enter into a deliberate collaboration and cooperative act with materials in the pursuit of meaning.

 Duality of Presence defines and explores ‘material specificity’ as a movement in American contemporary art jewellery and metalsmithing where artists aim to reveal hidden narratives through the use of specific materials. The works emphasize the importance of maker-viewer communication, by demonstrating the effectiveness of material centered conveyance, where artists tell stories that connect to the wider world. The works demonstrate a broad range of subject matter, with material specificity as the common thread. In addition to the physical display of objects, the exhibition will include two interactive digital components, a innovative use of virtual reality and an interactive website. Virtual reality headsets integrated into the gallery display will show VR videos produced by selected participating artists using a virtual reality multi-lens camera. Each video will transport the viewer from the gallery to a significant site or moment chosen and filmed by the artist.

Scandinavian studio jewelry is inconceivable without her and her works. As early as the beginning of the 1960s Tone Vigeland’s jewelry objects were routinely included in what are today legendary publications and exhibitions, such as the International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery held 1961 in the Goldsmiths Hall London, which first familiarized the public with the emerging art style of studio jewelry. Now, to mark her 80th birthday, Die Neue Sammlung is devoting its first solo exhibition in Europe outside Scandinavia to the grand dame of Scandinavian studio jewelry – 50 years after Vigeland’s first solo exhibition in 1967 in the Kunstnerneshus in Oslo.

With their flowing shapes Tone Vigeland’s pieces generally fit snugly despite being made of metal. Vigeland oxidizes the light shiny silver until it is as black as iron. Through contact with the skin the silver regains its play with the light, and lent and dreamt of metallic color variations. Every piece becomes individualized through virtue of being worn. Though they stand out for their size and volume, the objects consist of an incredibly large number of tiny hand worked parts – minute pipes twisted from silver wire, precisely cut rectangular and round discs or tiny pellets and rings – so cleverly joined together as to be invisible to the naked eye. Tone Vigeland’s art on the body appears simultaneously modern and archaic.
About the artist:
Born 1938 into one of the most famous artist families of Norway Vigeland’s artistic training began 1955 at the Statens Håndverk-og Kunstindustriskole Oslo (today Kunsthøgskolen in Oslo, National Academy of the Arts). To learn goldsmith work she moved 1957 to the Oslo Vocational School. In 1958 she joined the avant-garde artist cooperative Plus in Frederikstad, where several of the works she designed as a student were produced in series. Earrings worked from a single silver loop, whose restrained simplicity and linearity was typical for the style in Scandinavia after World War II, were successfully produced until 1985. In 1961, Tone Vigeland opened her own workshop, and began producing one-offs. Since then she has produced many world-famous items of jewelry which have been honored with numerous distinctions. These are now on show for the first time in a solo exhibition featuring 150 of her works.
  In a high-profile exhibition in Galerie Riis 1995 in Oslo, Vigeland took an important step into a different dimension – namely art in architectural space – and simultaneously a move away from decorative art that cites the human body. This move from the body to free space seems a huge one, and yet was quite a logical step for Tone Vigeland.
The very highest distinction have accompanied the artistic oeuvre of this extraordinary Norwegian artist: the Prince Eugen Medal from Sweden in 1988, appointment as Commander of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav in 1996, the Anders Jahre Art Prize and in 2008 she received the Golden Ring of Honor from the Association for Goldsmiths’ Art in Hanau.
  The exhibition was realized with the kind support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Oslo, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Berlin, the Royal Norwegian Consulate in Munich and the Danner-Stiftung, and in cooperation with Norwegian Crafts, Oslo.
In January 2018 the exhibition will be on show in Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim.
