Ni Hao - 10 contemporaryjewellery artists from Taiwan
‘Hi’ (Ni Hao in Chinese) is a magic greeting word that initiates communication, just  as a key that opens the door to a discussion, a bridge that crosses the  boundaries of silence. Language very often goes beyond its linguistic meaning;   however, it is also confined to linguistic competence. If there is a way that  crosses the borders of language and speaks up one’s opinions through work piece,  so that everyone, regardless of language, could feel the frequency of the world;  that would be art.

‘QI’ – RUUDT PETERS PREVIEW : 

Image de prévisualisation YouTube

« Chinese alchemy is based on the life force Qi, the interaction between body and spirit, the continuation of life. The artist Ruudt Peters wanted to get an understanding of this legacy and left Holland for a journey through China that was to last three months. 

During his travels he visited the terracotta army of emperor Jing Di, comparable with the better known army of China’s first emperor, only with figures half as tall and more damaged by the ravages of time. He was struck by what he saw: the futile efforts to display power and shield a dead ruler. This was the opposite of what had brought Peters to this part of the world. So during his stay at the Chinese European Art Centre in Xiamen, he decided to create a his own army, made from porcelain and based on the Chinese Alchemistic tradition. His starting point was the idealized Chinese acupuncture-man, but he modified him into a model defined by a western lifestyle and the passing of time. Before the figures went into the furnace, he individualized each one by altering surfaces and adding or removing segments and details. Later on in Amsterdam, he attached al sorts of elements made of silver, iron, glass, or horse hair. Peters three months sojourn in China is now symbolized by 99 china men. An army celebrating life. 
Each day during his trip Peters made a blind drawing: a pillow on his lap, drawing pad on top, sketching with eyes closed. They became the logbook of his experiences, of his mental and physical reactions. Gradually human faces started to emerge in the drawings.
Who’s features became visible? Was it someone from the East or the West, or perhaps the alter ego of the artist? Eventually these portraits provided the starting point for a collection of jewellery pieces. Fragments from Peters’ drawings were laser-cut in Xiamen from semi-translucent slices of agate. He assembled them into brooches and necklaces and applied silver lines on both front- and backsides. In doing so, he merged European and Chinese conventions, seeking an interaction between deliberately, and subconsciously made sketches. The outcome is a portrayal of the experiences of a researching, searching artist. » Ward Schrijver  (© Galerie Rob Koudijs)

PREZIOSA. Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition  2013’s edition

Un Certain Regard

Un Certain Regard -     Artists: Karin Seufert, Philip Sajet, Suska Mackert, David Bielander,Sophie Hanagarth, Sigurd Bronger  -  Marino Marini Contemporary Art Museum  (Florence, Italy)  20-Jun-2013 - 21-Jul-2013    website: www.preziosa.org2013’s edition of the international exhibition PREZIOSA Contemporary jewellery organized by LE ARTI ORAFE Jewellery School.
PREZIOSA 2013 starts from the otherness of this peculiar Art, and wants to focus on visual reaction of the “public” in face of contemporary research jewellery.
The thematic exhibition will be centred on the imaginary, on expectations and assumptions of the public in relation to the jewel.
The exhibition presents works by six international artists selected as examples of specific issues related to the imaginary: recognition/estrangement/surprise/rejection/trespassing, and will be divided into three sections:
– « To be or not be »: shapes visually recall ancient jewels like precious objects, but in reality….?
– Artwork by Karin Seufert and Philip Sajet
– The conceptual research on the imagination in jewellery: Suska Mackert
– « What I see is what I see! »
The irony of David Bielander; the aggressiveness of Sophie Hanagarth; the fun mechanics of Sigurd Bronger.
curator: Maria Cristina Bergesio

PREZIOSA 2013 includes two side events at the main exhibition, offering visitors additional opportunities for reflection on contemporary jewellery :
- Wearable!
Photo exhibition of worn contemporary jewellery.
The exhibition of jewellery is complemented by a photographic project of the show itself.
The need to show how these jewels can be worn in everyday life, how they interact with the people and with the surrounding space, has led to a specific concept, project, which has been developed using the skill and sensitivity of the particular photographer Eva Sauer.
Twelve jewels, which will be shown in the exhibition, will be chosen, worn and set in particular places of the city of Florence.
The twelve pictures will be displayed in the Museo Marino Marino inside PREZIOSA exhibition, and will also be present in the places where the photos were taken, so as to establish a mutual connection between the exhibition space and the town.
- PREZIOSA Young 2013
The work of the 8 emerging artists selected based on their personal research in contemporary jewellery, will be the “Young” section of PREZIOSA 2013.

EXPO ‘Salute to Pinton’ – Espace Solidor, Cagnes-sur-Mer (FR) -15 Juin-6 Oct. 2013

« Salute to Pinton » – bijou contemporain

vernissage le samedi 15 juin à 18h

Espace Solidor

‘Salute to Pinton’ is an exhibition intended as an ultimate thank-you for his unrestrained unique generosity and the trust he has put in us. By means of their creations, twenty one artists give a simple salute to the great master Professor Mario Pinton.

MARIO PINTON, spilla (brooch) , oro, rubino, 1995MARIO PINTON, spilla (brooch) , oro, rubino, 1995

Mario Pinton naît en 1919 à Padoue. Il est le fils d’un graveur qui lui transmettra le goût duraffinement et du travail du métal. Ses études le portent tout d’abord à l’Ecole Nationale d’Artde sa ville natale où il travaille l’argent.
 Puis, il obtient son diplôme d’orfèvre à l’Institut National d’Art de Venise. Enfin à Milan, il apprend l’architecture à l’Académie des Beaux-Arts.Il retourne alors à Padoue pour fonder, au sein de l’Institut Pietro Selvatico,  ce qui va constituer un véritable mouvement artistique en ébullition : «L’Ecole de Padoue».
Les adeptes de ce mouvement ont tous en commun certaines préoccupations stylistiques telles que le travail de l’or, une parfaite maîtrise technique et un goût prononcé pour la pureté des formes. Si le matériau utilisé est des plus traditionnels, la conception des bijoux n’en demeure pas moins avant-gardiste. De cette école sont sortis les plus grands créateurs italiens comme Francesco Pavan, Giampaolo Babetto, Graziano Visintin pour les premières générations, Annamaria Zanella ou encore Stefano Marchetti pour les plus jeunes.

Coup de coeur : Francesca FLYNN « Out of the BLUE »

For Out The Blue (nov 2012) Kath Libbert has chosen nine new BA and MA graduates from all over the UK:  ‘Spotting and then supporting the work of cutting edge new graduates has always been extremely central to the ethos of the gallery.  Forging a career straight out of college is really challenging. Now, more than ever, it is vital to exhibit and encourage these incredibly talented jewellers at this formative stage in their careers. In this Olympic year we think we can spot a winner….the gold medalists of the future!’

Francesca Flynn  ringsFrancesca Flynn  rings

Francesca Flynn, Glasgow School of Art, whose sparkling crystalline collection epitomizes the title of the exhibition, Out The Blue, explores the facets of natural and constructed crystals creating vibrant jewellery.

« I use a combination of metals, moulded resin, rubber coatings, wood and crystal elements. My work explores themes of fragility and impermanence which are developed into wearable objects. I am a graduate of 2012 and will be Artist in Residence at Glasgow School of Art for 2012/13 »

« My interest in the combination of art and science combined with a childhood fascination with rocks and fossils led me to experiment with crystal growth.  I used this initially as a visual source, which then developed as a method and material for creating work.  The vivid blue hue of copper sulphate crystals inspired the colour of resin for this collection.  My work explores the beauty and impermanence of crystals that I have grown and the fragility of natural crystals. I recreate these forms in resin and metal to make my own amalgamated formations which become stable, wearable objects. »

« Il mito come valore apotropaico nei gioiello di Maddalena Rocco.
La riflessione che scaturisce da un pensiero prende forma nel mito corrispondente.
Gli emblemi propri della divinità diventano materia e linguaggio, colore e segno, ritmo e disequilibrio. Le immagini fortuite del disegno narrante, composte in visioni laterali, sono impresse a bulino e caricano l’immagine di valenza simbolica. La lentezza della tecnica porta ad una ulteriore scansione riflessiva, non solo in chi opera, ma anche in chi guarda e indossa.
In questo circuito dialettico per simboli il valore segnico dell’ornamento da corpo arriva a comunicare come ai primordi, quando ancora non esisteva il linguaggio verbale. Quando il feticcio proteggeva la vita di chi lo possedeva. »

Maddalena Rocco - Il mito come valore apotropaico nei gioiello di Maddalena Rocco.Maddalena Rocco

A proposito di Ted Noten
“Is there any greater icon in the industrial world than the Mercedes-Benz?  I don’t think so.  CEO’s, real estate agents, small-time hustlers in the building trade, politicians, Mongolian drug dealers and Birmingham greengrocers: all around the globe they share the love for a Merc.  More than any other ornament it symbolizes success and social status.  These qualities attracted me to the Mercedes as an area for serious research.”   (Ted Noten, 2006.  Gert Staal Publishers)

Ted Noten is fascinated with glamour and status symbols.  He approaches them with contagious delight and a mischievous sense of humor devoid of condescending derision and political correctness.  His “serious research” of the Merc has led to a collection of brooches made out of a cut-up Mercedes body.  He dutifully presented his idea to the Daimler-Chrysler company, who were not amused…

Coup de Coeur : « Impossible Landscapes » by Montserrat Lacomba

« Impossible Landscapes » Series

by Montserrat Lacomba

« Paisajes Imposibles » es una serie de joyas que empecé en noviembre de 2012 y en la que estoy actualmente trabajando. Esta serie está basada en los paisajes que me rodean y con referencias a pintores y poetas que han tratado el tema del paisaje. »

« Impossible Landscapes » is a series of jewels that I started in November 2012 and continue to work on. The series is based on the landscapes that surround me with references to the painters and poets who treated the topic of landscape. »

Montserrat Lacomba - the 'Impossible Landscapes' serie

« It is impossible to understand art separated from feelings. It is a precise manifestation of reflections to be expressed and shared with others.  Art is uneasiness.
Painter Joaquim Mir remained captivated by the landscape of Torrent de Pareis on the island of Majorca and over time he searched for places from which one could see landscapes never previously painted.
Poet Jacint Verdaguer, of whom Joan Maragall wrote “no one knows the aspect of our land more than he,” in his notebooks of excursions to the Pyrenees had annotated descriptions of the landscape, orientative sketches, linguistic observations, writings and annotations that he would later use in the “Canigó” and others of his literary works.
The “Impossible Landscapes” series is born mainly from the admiration I feel for the painters and artists who have extensively treated the topic of landscape throughout the years, since it stopped being merely the background of the picture but instead became the focus of the work.  The same holds true for my recognition of the writers who make us imagine and transport us to unknown lands that we each come to know and interpret in our own way.
When we are surrounded by the landscape, our view gets lost into the infinite where there are no limits.  When we frame a fragment of landscape through a window or with a camera, however, that fragment assumes another sense and we make it ours.  Loving the land and surrounding landscape has led me to seek new landscapes that, once captured, become impossible. I move them to small wearable pieces, like windows, that invite the viewer to imagine and fantasize. »
