« At the beginning, all is empty and dark.
It looks like a never-ending sphere.
The darkness is strong and heavy.
Only a small grain from the destroyed world remains.
It’s floating and collecting positive energy from the space.
In the right moment, at the proper place, it explodes at the speed of light.
From one moment to another, the universe is full.
Blending, full of light, waiting for you.
Make a wish.
Create the new world of light, gravid in possibilities.
By focusing on the essentials we reach the blurred lines between natural and artificial.
These relationships are the jewel in the composition of freedom and individual expression.
Sometimes we see only what we want to see. Sometimes it’s enough.
We want to know the truth behind the things.
Truth is freedom.
So we ask, investigate and are curious.
We want to find out how things work.
We are creating universe with the least constraint.
The need to create is an elementary necessity of us all. » – Viktoria Munzker

Marion Lebouteiller  jewellery is now available at ada_gallery (Market Harborough, UK)

AND  UPCOMING EXHIBITION :
I am delighted to be part of «Ringing the changes» – a ring exhibition at the exceptional Victoria Sewart Gallery. The exhibition will run  from April 15th until July 16th 2017.
// Je suis ravie de faire partie de « Ringing the changes », une exposition de bagues à la galerie Victoria Sewart à Plymouth. L’exposition commencera le 15 Avril et durera jusqu’au 16 Juillet.

Marion Lebouteiller ​   at "Ringing the changes 2017"Marion Lebouteiller ​- ring –   at « Ringing the changes 2017″ Victoria Sewart Contemporary Jewellery Gallery.
« Marion draws her inspiration from the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. Today, her background as a sculptor in a bronze foundry deeply influences her approach to contemporary jewellery. She has been experimenting with a sculptor’s wax she heats up then twists and stretches to create stunning pieces later to be cast in silver or recycled gold. The result highlights the unpredictable nature of the warm wax as well as the spontaneity of her gesture and movement while letting the material express itself to its full potential. The perfect high polish of the inside of her rings creates a beautiful contrast with the matte finish and makes them very comfortable to wear. »

« Ringing The Changes is an exhibition of internationally renowned British jewellers designing distinctly modern rings, complimenting both the contemporary and the traditional. Striking rings for all occasions,  including bespoke wedding rings.
The exhibition includes 8 new designers, and new work from current Victoria Sewart Gallery designers. All specialising in rings made from a wide range of materials; traditional, contemporary, precious and affordable. Sustainability is important with the designers using materials that are sourced as ethically as possible. »

EXPO ‘TrèsOr’ – galerie de la Perle Noire, Agde (FR) – 15 Avril-14 Oct. 2017

TrèsOr, la nouvelle exposition de la Galerie de la Perle Noire du 15 avril au 14 octobre 2017

Cette exposition, présentée par les Métiers d’Art de la Communauté d’Agglomération Hérault-Méditerranée du samedi 15 avril au samedi 14 octobre 2017, met en scène un matériau des plus nobles : l’or !

AGDE - TrèsOr, la nouvelle exposition de la Galerie de la Perle Noire du 15 avril au 14 octobre 2017

L’or : élément chimique de numéro atomique 79, de symbole Au., du mot latin aurum. Jusque là, rien de très palpitant ni de vraiment inspirant… Mais si l’on précise que le plus précieux des matériaux aux chauds éclats de « petit soleil » est une matière lumineuse, pure, dense, inaltérable, malléable à l’envi et donc facile à travailler, on comprend mieux l’attrait des créateurs pour donner vie à cette exposition « TrèsOr ». Adoré depuis la nuit des temps, l’or incarne aussi bien luxe et convoitise que pureté, conquête suprême.

Au cœur de la cité d’Agde, la Galerie de la Perle Noire réunit à cette occasion une cinquantaine de créateurs, de France, d’Espagne et d’Israël, qui auront réalisé une pièce unique intégrant l’or sous n’importe laquelle de ses formes : feuille, poudre, plaque, mixtion, fil…

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Rafael Luis ALVAREZ at « CREATIVITY CONTEST-Il gioiello si mette in posa » – Torino (Italy) 13 Mai-30 Juin 2017

Rafael Luis Alvarez (Argentina)

Selected for  « Creativity Contest-Il gioiello si mette in posa »

 

INAUGURAZIONE SABATO 13 MAGGIO dalle 16,30 ALLE 20
PRESSO CREATIVITY OGGETTI
Creativity Contest-Il gioiello si mette in posa”, torna alla sua seconda edizione.
Un concorso internazionale riservato a jewellery designers e artisti che dà vita ad una mostra che inaugura il 13 maggio 2017.

CREATIVITY CONTEST

Interpreti dei gioielli che si sono distinti per ricerca di materiali, concept e aspetto formale, i 13 autori internazionali selezionatiRafael Luis Alvarez (Argentina) — Nikolai Balabin (Russia-Filnlandia) — Angela Ciobanu (Romania) — Nicolas Estrada (Colombia) — Anna Król (Polonia) — Laura Forte (Italia) — Marco Malasomma (Italia) — Renata Manganelli (Italia) — Lital Mendel (Israele) — Liliya Milpetrova (Bulgaria-Inghilterra) — Mabel Pena (Argentina) — Stenia Scarselli (Italia) — Nicole Schuster (Germania),
che presenteranno oltre alle opere scelte,vere e proprie collezioni.
L’esposizione consentirà quindi di dare maggior risalto alla ricerca artistica dei partecipanti.

Al pubblico che visiterà l’esposizione, insieme alla giuria,composta da: Daniela Bulgarelli, Enrico Debandi, Ludovica Gallo Orsi, Antonella Giani, Nichka Marobin, il ruolo decisivo di assegnare a fine mostra i premi stabiliti, partendo dal più ambito: il servizio fotografico in still life di un’intera collezione, realizzato in studio dalla fotografa Romana Federica Cioccoloni, che ha realizzato per le opere in mostra uno scatto fotografico particolarmente elaborato, specificatamente studiato per questa occasione.
Attraversato da uno spirito giocoso, l’intento del concorso diventa occasione, per una proposta di indagine di più ampio respiro sul gioiello contemporaneo, dove il fine supera il pur interessante confronto tra jewellery designer di ambito internazionale e il risultato che ne decreta la vittoria.
Contaminazione di linguaggi, sapienza tecnica, narrazione, capacità di emozionare. Il gioiello può e deve essere tutto questo. Se fosse una domanda, armonia sarebbe la risposta.
Creativity Oggetti punta da 16 anni i riflettori su artisti e designer che dedicano il loro lavoro alla ricerca di capi d’opera all’insegna dell’ hand made e alla definizione di un linguaggio artistico personale, facendo da tramite tra l’artista e il pubblico e promuovendo lavori per la maggior parte inediti. L’idea di dare una voce a chi fa ricerca, o magari dedica la propria vita a definire un linguaggio artistico personale, può essere un buon motivo per ideare e promuovere un concorso dedicato al gioiello contemporaneo con uno sguardo internazionale.
“Il gioiello si mette in posa” vuole essere una vetrina che offre opportunità professionali a tutti i partecipanti.
Le opere saranno in esposizione e vendita fino al 30 giugno 2017 e lasceranno documento del loro passaggio nel Catalogo “Il gioiello si mette in posa” con i testi di Paola Stroppiana e le fotografie di Federica Cioccoloni.

EXPO ‘Myung Urso: Trans-Form’ – Gallery Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco (USA) – 5 Avril-7 Mai 2017

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Velvet da Vinci (US),Myung URSO (S.KR),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 19:43

Myung Urso: Trans-Form

Work from a Decade and Now

Opening Reception: Friday, April 7, 6-8pm

Myung URSO at Velvet da Vinci: (bottom : Scene, Brooch, Recycled Paper Pulp Basket, Sand, Asian Ink, Sterling silver, 2017
top : Brood, Brooch, Recycled Paper Pulp Egg Carton, Sand, Pigment, Sterling silver, 2017)
« Thread, ink, wood, paper. Humble raw materials are venerated for their textural, structural, and visual qualities. Stitched, sculpted, stretched to join seemingly incongruous elements into inseparable jewelry forms. Myung Urso has an uncanny ability not only to interpret everyday materials in entirely fresh ways, but to elevate them in her work to stature typically reserved for precious stones and metals. Even when Urso uses sterling silver, freshwater pearls, or other more traditional jewelry matter, she gives cotton, wood, and, most recently, paper pulp, centerstage. And, in their leading roles, under Urso’s direction, these objects are radiant and mesmerizing. At the heart of Urso’s work are the exploration and transformation of commonplace materials into art objects that are ambiguous, enigmatic, and beguiling.
Myung Urso is a sculptor working in jewelry, a textile artist by training, and a keen observer of the natural world’s permutations. Seasons of the year, growth cycles, the elements of water, fire, and earth, are recurrent themes in her bodies of work. Urso revels in soft, expressive organic shapes yet her approach is quite exacting and laconic. Consequently, her necklaces, brooches, and earrings can exhibit both, a minimalist architectural austerity, and an exuberance of form and surface.
Myung Urso has used jewelry as a medium of artistic expression for the past ten years. A decade is also how long she has lived in the United States. Her work reflects the abundant cultural and artistic influences of her former life in South Korea, as well as the challenges and rewards of navigating the American cultural landscape.
For years, Hanji paper was a material Urso utilized frequently in her work. More recently, she has turned to another paper product — recycled paper egg cartons and recycled paper fruit/vegetable baskets. First spotted by Urso in farmer’s market stalls in her current hometown of Rochester, NY, these humble objects, weathered by sunlight, use, and reuse, have come to symbolize, for her, the cycle of consumption and the grower-consumer relationship, Urso says. The recycled paper pulp containers carry the product of the farmers’ labor as well as nourishment for those who consume the fruit. In Urso’s hands, pieces of these containers are transformed again, their surfaces treated with marble dust or other substances, set in sterling silver, and recreated as jewelry pieces, to be worn and translated yet again.
Whether using calligraphy in novel ways, as Urso did in her early collections, or stitching through found wood debris, as she did later, or treating common paper pulp as precious commodity, Urso’s approach makes her metamorphic jewelry exhilarating. » – Elena Rosenberg, Independent Curator

« It was very impressive to see all those greenish recycled paper containers when I entered the Rochester Public Market very first time… more or less ten years ago … one of top ranked farmers markets in US. Rich harvests from local farmers based on the Lake Ontario and Finger Lakes. To see all kind of berries and vegetables in these unusal and pretty containers was absolutely fascinating experience. This was kind of cultural awakening memory toward Western daily culture. Now these objects are trans-formed to my jewelry form.«

 Iro KASKANI

WHITES …… spring light ……..

  « Working on the « when I grow up » collection, my aim is to build « flesh » around a metal frame. I would like to create forms that highlight their components: an inner support, a core or a system of axis out of silver or copper, a body or a mass developed around it out of jesmonite and finally an outer surface, the skin.
Jesmonite is a composite material used in fine arts, crafts, and construction. It consists of gypsum based raw material in an acrylic resin. »
