EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Burcu SULEK in a deep deep BLUE

Classé dans : Burcu SULEK (TR),COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,MADEN (TR),Turquie (TR) — bijoucontemporain @ 22:15

Burcu SULEK

I discovered her and her work some « JOYA »s ago ….. in 2013, exhibited with the members of MADEN school …. LOVE at first sight for her BLUE jewels …. and impressed by this … SOLAR person !

And this impression of « SOLAR » remains, when you go for searching information to her website ! First thing, I go to the page « about », and there, usually, very complex, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic explanations … With Burcu Sulek ?
EVIDENCE, SIMPLICITY, and a BIG, CLEAR, SOLAR SMILE, with these words :
« I am taking great pleasure in creating what I love. « 
Directly, a SMASH, a SPLASH, a WAOUW of simplicity, happiness, beauty !!! For me, mixed with the souvenir of these BLUE jewels, in one word, MEDITERRANEAN !!
Then, you go to the page « works » … and there, the same splash of evidence, with the different titles :  « caves of HOPE », « HOLES of EMPTINESS »,  « EMPTINESS », « JUST »,  « BLOOMING HAPPINESS » and  « REBORN » (with no dates, nowhere, so, no way!,  you can’t « psycho-analyse » these titles …. ;-) …) So you search, as we say in french « on cherche la petite bête » (translated by « being nit-picky », « nitpicking »), « emptiness » ??? ha ha ….. some sadness ? some bad period ? and no, even there, in these « holes » or in this « emptiness » the sun arrives with its light and clarity : « Sometimes you find absolute fullness in sole emptiness », or « In this world of trickery, emptiness is what your soul wants… » …… Holes can be there, emptiness too, but they are just the « dark face » necessary to make the « bright face » exist ….
And this sentence « We all have hopes, plant yours in the caves » is SO full of HOPE !!! so simple, so gentle, so EVIDENT  !!

And then ? Well, It made me feel so safe, so fine ….. that just no need of jewels !!!  ;-)

So give us just a SPLASH of PLEASURE with my first love of BLUE !

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Snem Yildirim – coup de coeur

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Snem YILDIRIM (TR),Turquie (TR) — bijoucontemporain @ 18:16

Il n’y a pas si longtemps, en préparant ma visite à JOYA Barcelona 2016, je vous présentais mon COUP de COEUR pour les bijoux de Snem Yildirim (DECOUVERTE/COUP de COEUR : Snem Yildirim) …. Que dire de plus, sinon qu’après « vérification » sur place le coup de coeur persiste !!! :-)

« I create by taking inspiration from the cultural texture and geography in which I live. The diversities and the contrasts of this geography are the colours of my universe and works. I experience materials and production techniques by blending contrasts such as east and west, local and global, traditional and modern, geometric and organic… » (JOYA 2016)

« Which materials do you often use ? Why ? How do you choose raw materials ?
Everywhere have the potential to be a material library and as if we live in a megastore of the materials. To question the precious and non-precious concepts in the jewelry field makes us to experience wide range of materials. So we are working with the materials ranging from cotton to stone.  But nowaday I use often re-cycled plastic for Kanavice Series. The materials can not be thought apart from the idea for us. Sometimes the idea makes us to select the materials and sometimes the materials give us the idea. » (interview at EuropeanLife Magazine oct. 2016)

 

« What are your projects ?
I want to combine my art projects with jewelry and nowadays I am working on 2 series: Mein lieber Diktator and 1 Euro Shop. I am questioning authority, obedience, implicit violence and pressure for Mein lieber Diktator Series. And I am questioning precious and non-precious concepts for 1 Euro shop Series. » (Studio Zigzag interview on « lenvers-du-decor » – juill. 2016)

EXPO ‘Side by Side’ – ECNP Gallery, Istanbul (Turkey) – 3-26 Mars 2016

Side by Side by Burcu Büyükünal and Selen Özus

Side by Side is an amalgam of two solo but parallel shows by Burcu and Selen, who have been sharing a mutual dream since 2007 and finally Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio since 2011. Side by Side, the result of a long working process, emerges as a response to the passion and the need to create. In that regard, it is the fruit of not only a spatial cooperation but is also a meeting of the hearts. After Hasbelkader, the first show Burcu and Selen put on “together” in 2012, this second exhibition.

Side by Side

 

 

Let It…,  Burcu Büyükünal
Let it exist, let it cease, let it come, let it go, let it stay, let it appear, let it conceal, let it decay, let it split, let them gather, let it unite, let it be remembered, let it be forgotten, let it out, let it in, let it get lost, let it be found, let it become ugly, let it turn beautiful…
Let it… is a work that began to appear in my mind when I lost myself in the details of Abel Mort sculpture by Emile Feugère des Fort in Musée d’Orsay. It emerges from these details and changes its direction under the influence of the natural and obligatory course of life. It is fiction but it is real.
 Biography:
Having graduated from Industrial Design Department of Istanbul Technical University in 2003, Burcu Büyükünal started to work at Ela Cindoruk and Nazan Pak’s jewellery studio. After receiving Fulbright Award she got her MFA in Metal at SUNY at New Paltz in 2009. She confounded Maden Contemporary Jewelry Studio in 2011 with Selen Özus. Currently, she teaches classes at Maden, İTÜ and Plato Higher College of Education.
  Artist Statement:
« Among my works, there are designed products along with functional and nonfunctional, artistic and arbitrary pieces that I cannot classify. Contemporary jewellery, which is my main field, comes and goes between these two related disciplines, stands closer to one of them time to time. I sometimes focus on a technique, a material or a visual data around me and create links among them while revealing my own point of view. I crave to ask uncommon questions and find alternative answers to them. Even though I enjoy sticking to my habits in the process of creation, I find theme shifts nourishing and exciting. I believe creating and making is a childlike addiction. That’s why my studio is my living room. »

The Closest, Selen Özus
My autoportrait works entitled “The closest” are the products of an interpretive process of visualizing myself which resulted in conflicts and clashes.The period started with shut-eye drawings: My white on white faces only to reveal themselves with a closer look, are chosen to define myself. Porcelaine works emerged as the variable reflections of transparent and delicate materials gone with the flow.
 Selen Özus Biography:
Selen Özus was born in 1983 in Istanbul, where she continues to live and work. She got her BFA in Ceramic and Glass Design in Mimar Sinan Fine Art University, followed by a three year Jewellery Program in Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence where she took classes from Peter Bauhuis, Manfred Bischoff and Ruudt Peters.  Her work has been exhibited locally and internationally. She teaches at the Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio, she co-founded with Burcu Büyükünal.
  Artist Statement:
« It all starts with the valuable beauties and ugliness’ that surround us: People, being human, lights, spaces, relations, memories, nature and details.The sensations created by everybody and everything awaken a desire to produce.In fact, all shapens up while paying gently attention to the details. From then on my sole aim is to retreat to my secured world and to concretize what I see with my feelings… to reflect the combination of brain and heart. While producing, drawings become objects, objects become art jewellery. Once my strong feelings balanced, the rest passes to the piece. »
