EXPO ‘Philip Sajet: Beauty is the Most Important’ – Copper Museum, Knights Academy, Legnica (Poland) – 30 Avril-6 Juin 2013

Philip Sajet: Beauty is the Most Important 

 Philip Sajet: Beauty is the Most Important   Copper Museum, Knights Academy  (Legnica, Poland)  30-Apr-2013 - 06-Jun-2013    mail: galeria@galeria.legnica.pl

Philip Sajet tries, through goldsmithery, to combine the incompatible in his pieces. Thus the sharp glass shard penetrates the round metal setting of the ring, a green stone butts up against the delicate pearl, a classically cut, precious stone is sawn through and put back together. This is not about the destruction or extraction of something fragile but about emphasising that the one is not possible without the other. Harmony, balance comes through the combination of the various elements. Shells, a fragile and delicate material, used by man as jewellery for thousands of years, are combined by Sajet into a stole which can be seen in the accompanying photograph magnificently adorning a naked body, to which it lends an unassailable aura, like armour. The intangible, elusive glitter of a cut stone is replaced with metallic constructions which mimic it and turn the gentle glimmers into thorns. In the earrings the facets are imitated, but only the edges and not the light which emanates from gemstones. Small stones in their natural state are found at the connections, brightening the cool, aloof construction. Tiny and raw, they breathe life into the piece.
Sajet’s jewellery has a unique, distinctive use of form but it is made to be worn and through wearing to change its impact, breaking free from its artist-creator and developing its own life. The wearer too will change on wearing the piece, as it connects to his or her personality and deliberately draws in the attention of a third party, the beholder. In this light it is hardly surprising that Sajet has produced predominantly rings, earrings and close fitting necklaces which adorn the hands and frame and highlight the face. These are the parts of the body which stand for the expressive side of the personality; our facial expressions and gestures communicate with others, emphasise our nature, the unsaid and the said.

Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER – 30 Avril-30 June 2013

Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER  -  May / June 2013  Venue: Gallery of Art in Legnica

This year in the Legnica International Jewellery Competition REVOLT participated 319 artists from 43 countries. They sended 625 pieces. International jury (Galit Gaon (IL), Jiro Kamata (JP/DE), Hans Stofer (CH/GB), Sławomir Fijałkowski and Aneta Lis-Marcinkiewicz (PL)), which sessed in the days 4-5 of April, qualified to the exhibition part of pieces and chosed laureates. Names of the winners we will know on the vernissage, 18th of May 2013  in the Gallery of Art in Legnica, Poland.

Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER - may-june 2013

IDEA:

It is better not to turn on the television today. We are being attacked by images of economic crises, stock market crashes, falling ratings, budget deficits, cost cutting programs and increasing unemployment from everywhere. As a reaction to the overwhelming impression of a lack of opportunities there are emerging movements such as « Occupy … », helplessly protesting against banksters, corporations and governments. Doesn’t speaking in such circumstances about jewellery – the subject invariably associated with the demonstration of wealth and selfish hedonism – seem socially unacceptable and even ethically suspect? After all, the burning  of ATMs and the broken glass of jeweller’s shops have become part of the frustration of all the Indignados.
But there is also another aspect of the design and use of jewellery – which – like no other product of the imagination – can be an effective message, manifesting the point of view of the user – a voice of protest, being anti-or pro-, attitudes of rebellion, rebellion and guerrilla warfare. Can a standard set of slogans written out on banners, T-shirts and slap tags be complemented with another more sophisticated message? Are jewellery designers able to demonstrate their own opinion and join the discussion concerning non-aesthetic issues? Is the tradition of exclusive gold jewellery going to be our irreversible remorse? And will the chorus « Diamonds are a girl’s best friend » always sound  as infantile as the recent testimony before the European Court of Justice in The Hague of the famous model Naomi Campbell, who at one time accepted an embarrassing gift from the dictator of Liberia, tried for war crimes, so evocatively reconstructed in the movie « Blood Diamond » with Leo DiCaprio as a ruthless mercenary?

About festival

For more than thirty years, the Gallery of Art in Legnica has specialised in promoting contemporary jewellery and artistic objects made mainly of silver. We have been organising individual and group exhibitions of Polish and international artists, publishing exhibition catalogues, organising conferences and symposia, as well as fashion and jewellery shows, competitions and fairs. The most important event we organize is Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER. Every year we present individual and collective exhibitions as part of the festival, including:
LEGNICA INTERNATIONAL JEWELLERY COMPETITION The competition dates back to 1979 and every year it has a different topic. The competition is open and addressed to all artists, whose task is to present their work on a given topic – every year a different one – including an original artistic idea and representing a high level of artistry and technical skills. What is favoured is the concept, value and meaning of an artistic expression. Works entered for the competition are assessed by an international jury, on which over fifty outstanding goldsmithing artists and theoreticians have sat so far. What is characteristic of the competition is the fact that the winners of the first three prizes receive – according to a long-standing tradition – silver pellets and cash prizes.
The submitted works are qualified by an international jury. Over the years, we have invited a number of distinguished artists to seat on the jury, including: G. Babetto, G. Bakker, O. Boekhoudt,  S. Bronger, R. Puig Cuyás, P. Derrez, G. Dobler, A. Gut, F. Falk, M.R. Franzin, M.J. van den Hout,  E. Knobel, O. Kűnzli, T. Noten, V.K. Novák, R. Peters, M. Petry, K. Pontoppidan, G. Pucsala, A.

Puig Cuyás (E), H. Hedman (S), P. Sequeira (P).

So far there have been presentations of schools from Barcelona, Birmingham, Bratislava, Düsseldorf, Edinburgh, Florence, Hanau, Idar-Oberstein, Lappeenranta, Łódź, Matosinhos, Munich, Oslo, Padua, Pforzheim, Prague, Stockholm, Tallinn and Vilnius. Continuing the cycle in the subsequent years, we are going to show one after the other all European silver schools. A total of 22 schools has been presented so far. The cycle will be continued with the intention to show all of them.
DEBUTS is a cycle presenting pieces of young Polish artists, who just start their activity in the field of design and art. Our plan is to invite novices from abroad.

« Where does a “Parallel World“ exist.
In a different universe?
Can one discover this world through time travel?
Is it perhaps possible to see this world in a dream?
Or does it only exist in one’s heart?

which is composed of many worlds existing simultaneously, side by side.
We can find “Parallel Worlds”
whenever we open our eyes and hearts.
They are always with us.«   Mari Ishikawa
