EXPO 'Dark And Sweet' - Galeria Articula, Lisboa, Portugal - 17 Juin-30 Juill. 2011 dans Elo UIBOKAND (EE) 250188_1925331187230_1660671088_1911164_55039_n


Elo Uibokand is talented contemporary jewellery artist originally from Estonia. She studied jewellery and stone object design in Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, Lappeenranta, Finland and graduated 2009. Tiina Rajakallio is a Finnish emerging jewellery artist. She got her master’s at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008. They both are living and working in Lappeenranta, Finland. “Dark and Sweet” is their first collaboration together.
The dark side is often related to negative aspects of life. In this exhibition the darkness is necessary; it will highlight the light and sweet characteristics of our being. There are always two sides in every thing, together they’ll form a space where both is equally important and constantly in move, equally dependant on each other, so the harmony will be created.

Elo Uibokand has been exploring the theme by emphasizing the possibility for the encounter, femininity and tenderness in the subject by the brownish natural shades of copper and the oval-like shapes, referring to a human/woman. The cat has been obviously used as a symbol for the theme. Cats may be sweet and soft and purring…and at the next moment will bite your caressing hand. So there are oval shapes, smooth and easy to touch and handle and there are cats meticulously sawn out of the metal with sharp edges, as sharp as the bite of the cat. The cat images have been scratched to the surfaces of the metal, the drawings are subtle, even intimate – one has to come closer in order to see and recognize. Here, unlike in printmaking, the plate itself is the subject together with the earrings and necklaces sometimes sawn out from the same plate.

Tiina Rajakallio’s works are about forgetting as a part of remembering. Things get frighteningly lost and changed in our minds, there are empty spaces, black holes; moments we have no image about anymore. Rajakallio has been focusing on the aspect of catching the lost memory, using forms suggesting the handles, the vessels – abstract and concrete at the same time. The materials (mostly wood) have been treated in a different manner. Rough natural surfaces of the branches, slip surfaces carved and painted… You’ll be able to reach your memory… or it will slip away from your hands. The colour palette is delicately natural; except the deep dark ultramarine blue associated with the subconsciousness, the unknown and far away. There are necklaces and brooches to be found in Rajakallio’s series, somehow familiar and strange.

Leonor HIPOLITO – natures mortes

from 2006 exhibition « Still-life / Natureza morta » at Velvet da Vinci Gallery
« While walking along the way I looked at the landscape that suddenly started to grow. Through my eyes the trees seemed to multiply, nature expand. Suddenly standing in a field of light and shadow I gazed at this new reflected landscape, this immaterial but real landscape, intense but brief. From its fleeting presence I tried to keep in memory a reality that never existed before and within its shadows to preserve the remembrance of that view.« 
je ne connaissais pas ces travaux de Leonor Hipolito qui sont, je dirais, d’un silence, d’une sérénité et d’une beauté qui me parlent ………

In Counterbalance Kamilla Ruberg explores the idea of movement through different geometric transformations: from the actual movement within the object (kinetic pieces) to the movement described by the subject (Moebius series) and the movement of the viewer around the object (Anamorphic pieces).
In this most recent series, the pieces are made into patterns that keep the eye moving and finding new forms. The effect of these pieces constantly changes as the perspective of the viewer moves around and transforms the pieces when seen from different angles.

« Sara Bran : dentellière sur or
Sara Bran dans le cadre d´un partenariat entre l´Institut Franco-Portugais et le Musée des Arts décoratifs portugais a développé au long de ces 2 dernières années un projet de recherche et de création d´œuvres en or et en argent sur le patrimoine des dentelles portugaises. En décembre dernier nous l´avions rencontré lors de la présentation de son travail au Musée des Arts Décoratifs Portugais de la Fondation Ricardo Espirito Santo (FRESS) – Interview publiée le 10 décembre 2010
Bien que sa résidence soit terminée au Portugal Sara Bran poursuit depuis la France, son projet de « dentellière sur or » dont l´objectif est de créer 101 pièces. En ce mois d´avril elle présente à l´espace Groupama-Arte ses nouvelles créations qui ne cessent de surprendre par l´ampleur et la finesse du travail. Quel rêve pour une femme de porter sur un décolleté un de ces cols de dentelle en or !

« What remains unseen behind the house?
Is there a shelter to escape the chaos of the outer world?
Is there a beautiful garden with old and buckled trees overgrown with ivy that are surrounded by colourful flowers, smelling so sweet and intense that they mesmerize you withtheir scent?
Is there a run-down hut filled with discarded, rusty machines guarded by a playful dog ruuning around barking at the bees?
These hiden places pique my interest and inspire me to let my imagined discoveries take form in my hands » Mirjam Hiller

« The materials assume aesthetic of organic “glamour”, using various references that go from the “pop” universe of the 50’s and 60’s, to the spontaneous experimentalism of the adherent pieces that function almost as a second skin »

« Ligia Rocha: born and currently living in Porto, Portugal.
After attending the Fine Arts School at Lisbon, I studied goldsmithery, becoming a professional in this field.
My work is a result of an evolving dialogue between materials and ideas, using handmade metals, found objects, resin, copper wire from resistances and Japanese lacquer. Inspired and intuitive patterns are cut into the surface of the metal, transforming those seemingly ordinary materials into something precious.

Malaïka Najem – necklace, Camouflage, 2009, shibuichi, 18ct gold, yellow sapphire

Malaika Najem- ‘Forgotten’ pendant – Shibuichi, silver, gold

« This piece is about child soldiers and is called “Forgotten”. A subject that sadly still exists in 3rd world countries that are in war whether in Africa, the Middle East or Asia. The average child soldier is under the age of 18 and is forced and manipulated in doing and committing horrors that they are not aware off due to the use of drugs or brainwashing. The child is just an instrument, just a number; just a slave to the gun…the gun is the symbol of power. » (Malaika Najem)
