  Julia Obermaier« My main subject is about private space. If someone is crossing the borders of my spaces without permission, it causes a bad feeling. I try to protect them as much as possible, but in daily life, one cannot always keep direct surroundings and personal space in their preferred way. Our outside world is always in relation with each other and our circumstances.
I create in my pieces rooms, containers, boxes or little caves. These spaces can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer, that they use to confront a busy world ».

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Tal EFRAIM – Connectionary

Tal Efraim

Discovered when the Final Project Presentation 2016 at Shenkar

« By documenting details such as day-to-day mechanical joints, swivels, hinges and physical connections of objects in my sketchbook, I create my own private alphabet, which will later be transformed into the language of my designs.
My pieces are all one of a kind – whilst I can make to order any piece several times, each will be a little different due to the nature of handwork and craft.

« her work is driven out of her sketchbook, where she documents the world around her, creating a « dictionary » of design possibilities. Her work is made of gold, silver, porcelain and a variety of gemstones. »

« Are other areas besides jewellery, present in your work?
My most recent collection Connectionary consists of handmade porcelain, treated as gemstones. Creating these porcelain centre pieces allowed me to explore the world of ceremic art and ceramic production. In general, my inspiration derives from day-to-day mechanical joints such as swivels, hinges and physical connections of objects, meanings I often explore different areas as part of my design process. » (Klimt02 interview)

EXPO ‘Look What I Did. New Rings by DOT’ – Villa Bengel (DE) – 7 Dec. 2016-7 Mars 2017

Look What I Did. New Rings by DOT

opening Wednesday, 7th of December 2016 from 18 h

Look What I Did. New Rings by DOT 07Dec2016 - 07Mar2017 Villa Bengel Idar Oberstein, Germany

The exhibition shows works from DOT, a recently graduated student of the Masters programme from the Hochschule Trier.  After his graduation this spring, he startet to make a collection of rings, questioning his own and the wearers identity. What is male, what is female? What role plays the artistic expression? And who is the « I » in DOT, who made these Rings?

 Exhibition display. - DOT MELANIN rings: Exhibition display. – DOT MELANIN rings

 

« While viewing the rings you recognize a gender study. Both feminine and masculine forms are expressed by inner containing worlds, of phallus and aggressive forms. A combination of gemstones and metal connect to each other by layers and phases.
Metal that heals a wounded stone, a setting that simulates a gemstone to the human mind. Within you see a complexity of materials, colour and size that creates a sculptural object, however still maintaining its original function as a ring.

EXPO ‘Neuer Schmuck aus Idar-Oberstein – NSAIO 6′ – Stadtmuseum Simeonstift Trier (DE) – 27 Nov. 2016-26 Fevr. 2017

Neuer Schmuck aus Idar-Oberstein – NSAIO 6 

27 novembre 2016 – 26 Febr. 2017
at Stadtmuseum Simeonstift Trier

Neuer Schmuck aus Idar-Oberstein - NSAIO 6

Beginning with the renaissance of gemstones in jewellery design since the 1970s, Ute Eitzenhöfer, Theo Smeets, Lothar Brügel (ret. 2014) and Eva-Maria Kollischan (since 2014) successfully established the Hochschule Trier in Idar-Oberstein as a creative European jewellery centre. To mark the exhibition in the Stadtmusem Simeonstift in Trier on thirty years of the Gemstone and Jewellery Department, the publication shows an exciting selection of works from the last ten years (2006-2016). Works in creative design and photography accompany diverse approaches that exemplify the contemporary use of a reputedly ‘outmoded’ raw material.
In exploring the aesthetic characteristics of the material and the experimental confrontation with its physical qualities, the gemstone’s potential for design comes entirely into its own. Within current discourse it comments ironically, on the one hand, on the unilateral societal ascription as a luxury item; on the other, it functions as a charming and noble object of nature.

EXPO – ’0 + 0 = 0′ – Christchurch Art Gallery (NEW ZEALAND) – 16 Dec. 2016 – 2 Avr. 2017

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,GALERIES,Lisa WALKER (DE/NZ),Nlle Zelande (NZ),www Klimt02 — bijoucontemporain @ 14:08

0 + 0 = 0 by Lisa Walker

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu presents an exclusive exhibition of new and recent works by this internationally acclaimed artist, who received the prestigious Françoise van den Bosch Award in 2010 and became an Arts Foundation Laureate in 2015

Lisa Walker Artist Talk.  Wednesday, 15 February 2017 / 6pm
Artist Lisa Walker’s extreme, iconoclastic jewellery has been described as ‘the physical manifestation of the mental and virtual baggage of living NOW’.

0 + 0=0 by Lisa Walker Exhibition  /  16 Dec 2016  -  02 Apr 2017 - Christchurch Art Gallery -  Place     Cnr Worcester Blvd and Montreal St     Christchurch     NEW ZEALAND: (Lisa Walker Necklace: Untitled, 2016 Fabric, stuffing Courtesy of the artist and Funaki Gallery, Melbourne)

It might be tempting to say that Lisa Walker makes jewellery out of any old thing – but it isn’t true. The eclectic objects that form her distinctive necklaces, brooches and other body-adornments are meticulously selected and shrewdly modified before they see the light of day. She salvages her materials from an unlikely cornucopia of sources – re-presenting objects such as car parts, animal skins and even kitchen utensils through the frame of body adornment’s long history. Tiny Lego hats, helmets and hairpieces – of the kind that clog vacuum cleaner nozzles in children’s bedrooms around the world – are strung on finely plaited cords like exotic beads or shells; trashy gossip magazines are lashed together to yield a breastplate befitting our celebrity-obsessed culture; dozens of oboe reeds donated by a musician friend bristle round the wearer’s neck like the teeth of some unimaginable deep sea leviathan.
Walker’s work doesn’t sit comfortably within the contours of conventional jewellery – it squirms, fidgets, stretches and unravels. ‘I want to make pieces that don’t fit any of those jewellery recipes, yet still make sense as jewellery,’ she once said.1 In a field known for refined finishes and seamless construction, her audaciously sized, deliberately low-tech pieces inject a blast of pure creative oxygen, wilfully disobeying established jewellery conventions and confounding audience expectations. Despite their bodged-up, glued-together appearance and gleefully tacky origins, Walker’s works are anything but haphazard – rather they are elevated by her acute sense of colour and composition and healthy sense of irony. The new and recent pieces included in her Christchurch Art Gallery show, 0 + 0 = 0, explore a range of critical concerns; confronting jewellery-specific preconceptions about wearability and craftsmanship, they also investigate the politics of value, identity and appropriation.
…..
While some of Walker’s materials are amassed close to home – she once made a necklace from six months’ worth of detritus collected from her studio floor – she also ranges more widely, combing the world of the non-precious for idiosyncratic treasures. Together with physical objects, she collects memories and associations, a process made explicit in Trip to Europe 1973 (2011), a necklace, constructed from the postcards, train tickets, concert programmes and other souvenirs a ‘cultured couple’ offered for sale on Trade Me. For Walker, having just returned home after fifteen years spent living in Germany, the mementos spoke of New Zealand’s complex history of arrivals – including those of Māori and European settlers – and of how cultures are transported, translated and transformed. Recent pieces such as Pendant (2016) reflect her interest in (and ambivalence about) exchange and appropriation and especially how these might play out within a New Zealand context. Assembled from pounamu offcuts given to Walker by a sculptor friend, Pendantcombines varied surfaces cut from several different stones, offering a beautiful, but deliberately problematic, addition to the tradition of Māori taonga.

Lisa Walker Dick Necklace 2016  Lisa Walker Dick Necklace 2016

Despite the irreverence of its title, and the ubiquitous banality of the phallic graffiti that inspired it, another, equally serious, reclamation prompted the creation of Dick Necklace (2016).
I live with the challenges of a patriarchal world and [its] hideous anti-women history. I’m intrigued by the online activity of the younger feminists. I was always impressed by Louise Bourgeois’s giant bronze cast penis sculpture [Filette (1968)]. Many years ago I saw a postcard of her as a 70-something year old woman, standing next to it with her hand gently, but authoritatively, resting on the giant penis. ‘Dick and balls’ drawings are a cultural phenomenon; we grow up with these scrawlings everywhere. The penis can be symbolically positive and negative; fertility and love, but also rape, misogyny, imbalance of power. As a feminist I now take, claim, and interpret it for myself, twisting its symbology into something else.
‘I learned a long time ago that you don’t have to find the answers. It’s enough for the works to keep asking the questions.’
The thorny issue of copying and influence has long fascinated Walker, gaining new relevance as social media allows for the increasingly unrestricted distribution and repurposing of imagery of all kinds. She joined Instagram, the online image-sharing service, in 2015 and describes it as a ‘huge hunting ground’,2 admitting she is now influenced more by what she finds online than by actual, ‘real world’ objects. A posted shot of Masturbine (1984), a well-known work by the renowned contemporary Swiss duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss, prompted her own Fischli & Weiss Bracelet(2016), which replaces the original’s whorl of expensive leather footwear with budget heels from her local Number One Shoes warehouse. A photograph of a cellphone bound up in the twisted cord of an old-school desk phone, uploaded by the Los Angeles-based artists Mitra Saboury and Derek Paul Boyle under the Instagram nomenclature ‘Meatwreck’, proved irresistible. Walker recreated it, almost exactly, in the form of an oversized pendant and, though she remains delighted with the piece, doesn’t shy away from the questions about ownership and creative license this kind of borrowing provokes. In fact, the discomfort inherent in such appropriation is shared by artist and collectors, since Walker’s works are primarily designed not to be displayed politely indoors, but to travel with their wearers out into the wild, wide open of the public domain. ‘I learned a long time ago that you don’t have to find the answers,’ she says, ‘It’s enough for the works to keep asking the questions.
  If the eclectic forms of Walker’s work reflect the democracy and limitless possibility of our new open-source world, her ‘more is more’ aesthetic also suggests the sense of chaos and overload it can provoke. With every online image potentially linked to thousands more, how could you ever see it all? Excessive, oversized, popping at the seams with look-at-me impudence, Walker’s works draw upon and reflect the unrelenting abundance of modern life. And yet, taken one piece at a time, they’re much more than thrown-together clickbait. At its most anarchic, jewellery that is created to be worn still requires its maker to take into account a series of considerations that don’t constrain other art forms, like painting or sculpture. As she creates her pieces, often concealing traditional jewellery processes beneath contemporary kitsch, Walker thinks about weight, scale, durability, and how her pieces will relate to the yet-unknown body they are destined to adorn. Having thrown out the rulebooks in her early practice, she now values the technical challenges these self-imposed limits present, enjoying how they slow things down and distil her attention, demanding mindful focus in a fast-moving world. In discussion, it soon becomes apparent that this process fuels, rather than suppresses, Walker’s high-voltage imagination. Recalling a project in which she turned an entire building (City Gallery Wellington) into a brooch by clipping a giant mild-steel safety chain to its ceiling and attaching the other end to a wearer via an enormous pin, she mischievously refers to it as only her ‘second largest work’. She’s not kidding; the scale of that audacious project is effortlessly eclipsed by another one. Existing, so far, in solely conceptual form it features a chain, pinned to its wearer, with planet Earth on the other end.  Felicity Milburn, Curator

« I am extremely fascinated by the human psyche, intrigued by the past, old age and loss. I get excited by old and worn elements, roughness and decay. My jewellery tells stories of aging and personal loss, stories of the human life span and the transitions, choices and turning points of it. My work method is searching and questioning, my starting point always an emotion. I have great respect for good finishing, craftsmanship and skill. With my work I hope to evoke emotions in other people, move something inside of them.  For me contemporary jewellery is a rebellious art with no actual rules or true limits. » Christine Jalio

Fascinated by the small but detailed objects he firstly learned the profession of watchmaking at Cicle Formatiu de Grau Mig de Rellotjería Barcelona (2002-2005) which later ended up in jewellery making and studies at Escola d’art del Treball La industrial (2010). In the exhibition he shows jewellery that require fine discipline and great craftsmanship. The fascinating way of transforming silver through fusion techniques that he use, has in recent years led to well worth awards.
