NIGHTLIGHT SKIN  STATEMENT
« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the races/ cultures/ subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to create his signature, by engraving, pouncing and printing, he creates a new dimension to the material.
After researching different kinds of sub-and material-cultures/ religion/ races he started to experiment with skins. By confronting those materials together, we can translate it as an extension between all human society.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self- expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference between the sexes/ humans/ religions and cultures.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. »

galerie beyond / MICROBIOTA / Arnaud Sprimont:  
 2016 Microbiota -SOLO-DEC-2016- Horizon

« With this brand new series, Arnaud Sprimont pursuits a little more the questioning on the basis of his creative research. Supported both by a scientific and empirical observation of the cells and patterns of the living, he walks up and down an invisible and frightening universe, where the strong ties that exist between human being and nature reveal themselves. It’s precisely the exploration of this creeping network that’s at 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.
Initially, Arnaud Sprimont, draws his raw material within nature. From elements harvested during his peregrinations, he generates a new alphabet of the living that’ll be the basis of a grammar intended to spin his own mankind. This opens the way to a hybridisation work : a construction is achieved from multiple elements creating a kind of a new biological makeup, fully fantastic and with baroque appearance, such as a crossbreed of improbable species. His interpretation of the material eventually tends to dematerialise the shapes so that they become a representation of his own universe. Their white appearance, neutral, and close to a scientific picture, approach as close to the final shape to capture their reliefs and shadows.
The items of Arnaud Sprimont reveal as an extension in the most secret and infathomable of the human body through a will of defining his true nature in all his boundlessness.  » Marie-Luce Martin / Translation Pierre-Yves LENOIR

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 1 – Dominique Thomas Vansteenberghe – et tomber dans ses lacs ……

Dominique Thomas Vansteenberghe 

toujours une histoire de ligne, de fil à suivre  ……

Fil qui roule et s’enroule autour du corps, support majeur …. d’arabesque ornementale il devient défense, barrière …. Même si plus tôt dans sa création ce fil était plus « ornemental » (voir les pièces intitulées « Parure de corps » à l’exposition  « TROIS&MOI » A L’Orangerie à Bastogne), déjà les « limites » se posaient : le protocole (lequel ?), le deuil, la burka, le faux-cul ….. « de la tenue !!! » …. je crois entendre ma mère : « tiens-toi DROITE ! »  la ligne comme « ligne de conduite » … et les bijoux s’intitulent dorénavant « contrainte », puis deviennent défense : « don’t touch me »

Dominique Thomas Vansteenberghe   Dominique Thomas Vansteenberghe

« Ces dernières années, j’ai expérimenté plusieurs techniques de travail et de matériaux. J’ai cherché, essayé, laissé et gardé. J’ai beaucoup travaillé le fil et les techniques textiles, associé au métal, (argent, acier) pour obtenir un travail souple, aérien et transparent.
Depuis peu, j’ai découvert la fibre de carbone. Ce matériau m’offre de multiples possibilités par son extrême légèreté. Il me permet de créer des pièces de dimensions plus importantes et néanmoins «confortables» car très légères.
Mes créations actuelles tendent vers un aspect plus architectural mais toujours en accord avec ma démarche initiale: je « construis » le bijou entre le corps et l’espace et chaque pièce est une réelle réflexion. » (WCC-BF)

« Mon travail est essentiellement basé sur l’interaction entre le bijou et le corps et l’espace autour de celui-ci.
Mes recherches sur le mouvement et la contrainte m’ont amenée à créer des pièces tantôt très grandes, tantôt plus «intimes» selon l’inspiration ou le moment vécu.
Le fil, très présent dans mon travail, me permet de «jouer» avec les proportions du bijou autour du corps en gardant la légèreté et la transparence désirée.
J’aime que le corps soit perçu au travers du bijou même s’il l’entoure et/ou l’entrave en partie ou dans son entièreté. » (blog)

même ce terme, « entrelacs », est à double sens : il peut sembler léger, aérien, comme la structure du bracelet, mais ne pas oublier qu’à l’origine les « lacs » étaient des noeuds (qui se resserraient), des pièges, pour la chasse ou la pêche ….

Expo at Beyond Fashion Carolina Apolonia - "Of Things Unknown but Longed for Still"  *

Carolina Apolonia - Brooch Unique piece -Silver, wood, paint, steel: Carolina Apolonia – Brooch Unique piece -Silver, wood, paint, steel

« My work reflects my intimate world. I often construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, and cities that mirror my dreams and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past or people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out, and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries.
My work is about finding refuge and freedom.
I am inspired by the everyday rhythms in life; how we move, interact, build, love and heal.
And I’m fascinated by shelters, industrial construction work, and the rules of aerodynamics.
My most recent works show a slight change in shape and form. I wanted to create pieces that represent movement, or rather, the ability to fly.
The collection as a whole shows my view on the ever-changing dynamics between the needs of the individual and the safety, strength and demands of the collective. »

Side expo by Juan Harnie (BE) and Ana Margarida Carvalho (PT)
Ana Margarida Carvalho and Juan Harnie got paired in The Contemporary Jewelry Exchange 2016. Selected jewellers from around the world participated in this project and were paired to find a common interest or theme and make a piece for one another.
Both Ana and Juan look for beauty in things that are not necessarily beautiful to others. Combining plastics and metal is one of their common interests and neither of them shies away from using bright colours.
The pieces presented in this exhibition are similar to the two pieces they originally made for The Exchange. And even though both of them have their own interpretation of beauty and where to find it, their pieces accompany each other really well.

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jonathan Hens – the HIGHWAY of success !

Jonathan Hens

I discovered his works at fall 2013 during PARIS – CIRCUITS BIJOUX , at the exhibition ‘Precieux Passages’ at Bibliothèque Forney. A first « face to face » with a (very) STRONG creation !

Strong creation that encountered SUCCESS : in 2012 the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents his works, together with some other students, at SIERAAD 2012 Amsterdam, we saw his works at Marzee Graduate show 2012 AND 2013, an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2014 (« Lights ON/Lights OFF » 3 stations Galerie, Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2015 (« Oscure sacrifices« , together with Jorge Manilla, at 3STATIONS,  Munich), an exhibition during SCHMUCK 2016 (« Trans-it » – 3STATIONS,  Munich), has been selected  for TALENTE 2016, Munich, he is presented at AUTOR 2016 (the International Contemporary Jewelry Fair in Bucarest, Romania) ……
This is not the « Route of Success », it’s an HIGHWAY !!!

« After having researched different kinds of sub-and material-cultures, Jonathan Hens constructs with his own culture of tin while exploring the different qualities of the metal, making himself a master of his practice. By engraving, pouncing and printing, he develops a new dimension to the material. This results in graphic surfaces combined with archaic shapes and volumes.

They are an ode to the pleasures of the now. - Jonas Belde, Fashion DesignerJonathan Hens (MA) – at Marzee graduation show 2012 - Belgium, Antwerp, Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten – #8, 2012, necklace, pewter, sutures – 430 x 260 x 99 mm –

« Jonathan Hens’ striking work speaks of recent developments in today’s world, which has seen a fusion between the banal and the subcultures and becomes a place where men and women have merged into androgynous beings.
His designs are the result of an intense search for an alternative identity. Rather than a classic example of beauty, the viewer gets to see Hens’ interpretation of it. He chose the material pewter to launch his fetishism line.
His dark look mirrors (or reflects) ‘the now’, a place where there is scope for experiment and self expression. His atypical aesthetic has no truck with traditional techniques. Jonathan Hens creates a visual game between austere forms and a rough edge finish. He heightens the geometry and black textures by using suture thread to bind the various elements.
His work raises many questions, such as what beauty means today and whether or not there is still a difference betweens the sexes.
Jonathan Hens’ work gives us greater insight into the diversity of our world. » / Jorge ManillaJonathan Hens -   THE CITY IS MY CHURCH - 2014 - #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ LatexTHE CITY IS MY CHURCH – 2014 – #1 Necklace  -Pewter/ Sutures/ Latex

«  I’m a jewellery designer born in Germany (1963), living and working in Brussels for the last 20 years. I have a Master of arts degree in History and a diploma of art jewellery design. Over the past years. I have been working as a teacher and as an independent jewellery designer. In 2015, I co – founded  “s t u d i o  F16 ”, a multidisciplinary art collective.
Designing and creating jewellery has been my passion since childhood, but life took me in other directions and it was only after having a child that I found my way back to jewellery design. Next to contemporary jewellery, it is graphic design and ceramics that make my heart beat faster. In my latest collection I have combined these three disciplines – a challenging but fascinating adventure. I like to experiment and to explore new materials and techniques.
A few years ago, I 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 my jewellery collections.

I am attracted by the translucent white colour, the fragile appearance with a surprisingly solid character and the almost sensual texture of unglazed porcelain. By integrating different materials such as 3D printed ornaments and digital designed images into handcrafted porcelain creations, I translate traditional jewellery concepts into contemporary pieces.
To me, every collection is a new journey and I love to get lost in a jungle of untrodden paths on the way to creating something new. »   Ute van der Plaats
