Triple Parade exhibitions in Tianjin & Beijing Exhibition  /  10 Nov 2016  -  17 Jan 2017 - Tianjin Shengxi Museum of Fine Arts & Gauguin Gallery Beijing

The main exhibition TRIPLE PARADE 2016 -  Dialogue Across You and Me to Them: Creator, Wearer, Viewer  – Central Traveling Exhibition Represented 110 jewellery designers & artists from 14 countries.

The Triple Parade 2016 international annual exhibition is a cultural exchange which is expanded between China and the rest of the world on a multitude of level, devoted to the hardcore awakening in jewellery design, with a very open and contemporary-oriented approach by focusing on the concept of dialoguing.

The pervious themes were: Triple Parade 2015 – Dialogue across Three Countries, Triple Parade 2014 – Dialogue across Three Generations. This year, the term Dialogue across You and Me to Them: Creator, Wearer, Viewer in our theme is vitally important marks the notion of social interaction. We believe that the significance and multiple capacities of the dialogue mark have not been truly recognized. Each of the three roles in a dialogue, which are briefly introduced in the plate sections devoted to them, addresses one perspective on how  » Dialogue » plays a progressive position in the contemporary jewellery design of our period. Jewellery examines how we define self, integration and segregation, the means used for communication – and how these issues are reflected in creative work.

With her vases pendants, the jewelry designer Jing Yang explores and experiments with the gender-specific stereotypes in her home country China. By dissecting vase-shaped elements and arranging the individual parts in a distinctive manner, she plays with formal analyses reminiscent of Concrete Art. (ArtAurea)

The sentence has two meanings. « I’m not a vase, I’m jewelery » which is a
The other interpretation comes from my home. In many cultures, bringing the silhouette and features a vase in connection with a woman. In China it is called pretty but stupid women « vase » – nice but hollow.
My work group « I am not a Vase » has several layers of meaning.
As jewelry is also the vase an object that moves between useful and artistic object.
I’m interested in the artistic jewelry. Even my vases have no function anymore – they are cut into rings and the fragments are then strung on a string and creates a neck piece of jewelry.
Stacked the vase can recognize. The result is a fragile entity. My vases can always decompose and their meaning changes again. You mean to say, « I will not be a vase, I have something to say! »
Also think about the opposite worthwhile. « I am a Vase » says: « I am beautiful ». » (adbkAcademy Gallery)

COUP de COEUR : Isabella LIU – mended jewels

Classé dans : Chine (CN),COUP DE COEUR,Isabella LIU (CN/UK) — bijoucontemporain @ 2:12

Isabella Liu, discovered at JOYA 2014, where she was one of the finalists at Enjoia’t Estudiant award 2014.

You first see white porcelain pieces, like teapots, broken, and mended with gold lines …. and then you discover that, opening the piece, the « mending » is in fact a jewelry piece …. I found it so poetic ….

 Isabella Liu, Pieces, 2014Isabella Liu, Pieces, 2014 - Mending- One Brooch in a Midi Ceramic Pottery, 2014 – Ceramic, gold plated metal – 13 x 10.4 x 3.9 cm -  Object and jewellery

« Inspired by Japanese art of Kintsugi and her design philosophy, Isabella Liu believes that anything suffering damage has it’s potential to become more beautiful. In the ‘Mending’ collection, she has chosen to focus on broken and fragile objects, utilising narrative approaches and designs a set of ceramic tableware. Instead of hiding their damaged areas she opted to celebrate and highlight their fragility into a wearable piece of art of a sculptural form and giving them a new life. She pushes the boundary of object and jewellery. The golden crack is intended to be appreciated both on the body as a piece of jewellery as well as off within the porcelain as a piece of museum art in their own right, which engages audiences by transforming the piece. Isabella regards the design and creation of her work as a form of meditation and process of cultivation. She explores the spiritual belief by celebrating the factures of broken objects and the fragility of life. Changing our perspectives about life’s challenges, and engages with audiences mending with joy and peace, and then beauty and enlightenment can transpire from them.«

« When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful” – Billie Mobayedt Inspired from this Japanese philosophy and her personal experiences, Isabella Liu has chosen to closely focus on broken and fragile objects. She collected a large number of broken and abandoned objects such as barks that had fallen from trees in a cemetery, broken china from vintage markets, etc. Liu examined these items in order to discover where they were broken. Instead of hiding their damaged areas she opted to illuminate them and resultantly transforming their fragility and cracks into a real piece of art and giving them a new life. Isabella regards the creation processes of jewellery as a method of self-cultivation. She recognizes the cracks and fragilities of life and is able to transform injuries and imperfections into beauty. In the ‘Mending’ collection, she presents this inspirational and hopeful belief that by changing our thinking about life’s injuries and by mending them with joy and peace, beauty and illumination can transpire from them.«

EXPO ‘DUST INCLUDED’ – Ubi Gallery, Beijing (CN) – 25 Sept.-17 oct. 2014

Ubi Gallery - DUST INCLUDED precious particles and gruesome grit in applied arts

Opening party Sept 25 | 15:30-17:30

Ubi Gallery - DUST INCLUDED

 the events taking place in Dashilar during Beijing Design Week, Ubi Gallery’s minimalist and stylish interior provides a calm sanctuary. This year, the gallery presents DUST INCLUDED, a thought-provoking exhibit of contemporary jewellery, ceramics and lifestyle goods, showcasing the work of 13 artists connected to China and The Netherlands.

DUST INCLUDED explores the theme of dust and pollution in Beijing and other megacities. Visitors are confronted by Joke Schole’s angry bear, who proclaims, ‘Clean up your own mess’. Other artists such as Liang Li treat dust as a byproduct of human failure, incorporating it into her work as an ‘Award for Bad Conduct’. Hortense de La Jonquière’s masterpiece—a cabinet constructed of Beijing dust—shows how dust captures memories, reminders of things past. Prominent milliner Elisabeth Koch adopts “crust” material used in environmental cleanup to create hats intended to deflect dust on a daily basis. The Dutch design collective of Eva de Laat, ByBorre and the University of Eindhoven propose futurist clothing to shield those living in polluted urban environments. Visitors will also find limited edition collector’s items and affordable gifts commissioned for the exhibit, as well as a portion of Ubi Gallery’s permanent collection.

And of course we have many jewellery artists during DUST INCLUDED!

Chuang Han-Chieh made a collection called ‘Red Brick’, using enamel, silver, copper, paper, gold dust and brass dust. It is a celebration of the beauty of traditional skills and materials and an honor of the farming villages, the foundation of the Taiwanese economy. Tired from the busy urban life abroad, the artist felt a strong emotional connection with the opposite, the relation between people and land and the relation with her own tradition. She tries to overcome the risk of a sentimal journey where the beauty of the simple farming life is romanticized. Chuang Han-Chieh is too much of an artist to let this happen. She didn’t give in on the composition, the use of material and technique. You can see two strong, contemporary and independent pieces as a result.

Junjin Wu  made this collection of necklaces especially for DUST INCLUDED.
« Dust has everything to do with the origin of life on earth. Through gravity things will become dust and life and memories will break down and grow into something new. The artist Junjin Wu prepared pendants to showcase the magical transformation. She used canvas, dust, soil, wood and horn. Natural materials tracing forgotten pasts and pointing to new futures.«

The Taiwanese artist Ying Hsun Hsu shows brooches made out of iron flakes, using magnetic power. For her capturing changes in time, the wear and tear of normal things – the deformation and shrinkage, the historical evidence is essential. The vulnerability of the imperfection is awesome. Hsu records the memories of the invisible, before things crumble into dust

Kee Ho YuenKee Ho Yuen
Kee-ho Yuen received a B.A. from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1983 and an M.F.A. in Metalsmithing and Jewelry from The University of Iowa (UI), US in 1989. He is currently a Professor and the Head of the UI Jewelry and Metal Arts program.
Kee-ho looks at his work as an evolving collage of both the philosophy and the sensibility of the East and West. His work is an aesthetic investigation as well as a quest to whimsically comment on human emotions and interactions. Kee-ho employs an eclectic use of contemporary and traditional technologies and materials, ranging from advanced 3-D computer modeling to traditional fabrications and enameling.

Tricia TangTricia Tang
While born and bred in Hong Kong, Tricia Tang Tsz Chong has spent 5 years in Australia. Her jewellery practice reflects the intimate relationship, individual identities and cultural permutations that have resulted from her experience of different culture. The objects she makes blend past (her occurrence) with present (contemporary materials) to produce distinctive narrations. Without a limitation on materials, Tang enjoys testing and finding the most appropriate materials for each of her concept and work. Tang believes a piece of jewellery can be no difference than a contemporary art piece, jewellery is an object without limitation and with a strong notion of statement within.  http://triciatang.blogspot.com/

Mary Lee HuMary Lee Hu
Mary Lee Hu (born 1943 in Lakewood, Ohio) is an American artist, goldsmith, and college level educator known for using textile techniques to create intricate woven wire jewelry.
Hu first became fascinated with metalwork during high school introductory courses. She later explored more work with metals during a summer camp. She went on to attend the University of Miami, Ohio for two years and then went to Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan to complete her undergraduate degree. During her undergraduate education Hu developed her skills and continued to work with small scale metalwork and jewelry. In 1966 while earning her graduate degree in Metalsmithing from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois, Hu studied under renowned metalsmith L. Brent Kington. It was during this time that Hu started to work with fiber inspired techniques after taking a fiber arts course. This led to the development of her signature style of wire wrapped jewelry. Since the late 1960s Hu has developed new techniques in coiling, wrapping, weaving, knitting, and twining wire. Her work consists mostly woven wire earrings, rings, bracelets, brooches, and neckpieces that emulate natural forms, movements and symmetry.
After completing her MFA, Hu traveled to various places and took up different teaching positions until she joined the metal arts program in the University of Washington School of Art in 1980. She retired from the University as professor emeritus in 2006.
Hu is a member and past-president of the Society of North American Goldsmiths. In 1996 Hu was inducted into the American Craft Council College of Fellows. Hu has received three National Endowment of the Arts Craftsman Fellowships. Her work is in major collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Renwick Gallery, the American Crafts Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. Hu is the winner of the 2008 Irving and Yvonne Twining Humber Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.
