It’s time for JOYA 2017 !! Barcelona (SP) – 5-6-7 Oct 2017

JOYA 2017  is coming !!   5-6-7 Oct 2017

 JOYA_2017 - 5-6-7 Oct 2017

Even if, this year? I don’t come to JOYA ! :-(   because of Paris Parcours Bijoux …… SORRY !BUT I have to talk about « my » very dear GREEK jewellers, very present !

When you go to the « showroom page » it begins DIRECTLY with « my Greeks » ! :-) ….. alphabetical order ….. So HERE WE GO !!!!!!!!!!!!

 

AGAPI SMPOKOU

Agapi Simpokou - Necklace - Porcelain.  "Vanity" - http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/ AGAPI SMPOKOU – Necklace – Porcelain.  « Vanity »
« What is jewellery? A customer chooses a diamond according to its value. Diamonds have value because of their durability, clarity and strength. These qualities imply the human need to overcome the fear of death. I question the durability and value of diamonds by working with them in porcelain, presented in a 3D and linear form in my work. »

 

 AGGELIKA DIPILARI

Aggelika Diplari -Necklace: Wood, silver, stainless steel, acrylic pigments  http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/AGGELIKA DIPILARI – Necklace: Wood, silver, stainless steel, acrylic pigments.
« I select driftwood. I study its organic materiality and diachronic multifaceted narratives. I need to continue their complex stories, by reviving history through my alterations and illustrations. I simulate life in its absence, cancelling the warped weight of time by crystallising the wood’s surface. Reflecting my feelings of the present, I find and imagine—portray—the unknown effects on the experiences of tomorrow. »

ANTRIA PRASINOU ANTRIA PRASINOU Brooch - Paper, cotton, silver.  "Burning the knowledge"  http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/Antria_Prasinou.jpgANTRIA PRASINOU Brooch – Paper, cotton, silver.  « Burning the knowledge »
« This collection is based on a metaphor; the destruction of knowledge that transports us through the memory of the past…to today. This « unstable » balance is expressed through the fragility of the material. I use paper to capture and then illustrate the shadows that attempt, through their movement, to outline the essence of true identity. »

ARTEMIS VALSAMAKI
Artemis Valsamaki - Brooch - Copper, silver, acrylic paint. - http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/Artemis_Valsamaki.jpgARTEMIS VALSAMAKI – Brooch – Copper, silver, acrylic paint.
« For me, jewellery is a medium for manifesting my thoughts and concerns as well as expressing my feelings. I draw my inspiration from human relationships, dreams, Greek mythology, reality and fantasy and whatever hides an emotional power. My intention is always to create a wearable visual, narrative story. »

IOLI LIVADA
(CYPRUS, 1968) (ok, ok, it’s NOT Greece …. but …. hem …. very near ? ;-) …)

IOLI LIVADA - Brooch - Aubergine peel, corn leaf, silver, steel.  "Imaginary flowers" http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/Ioli_Livada.jpgIOLI LIVADA – Brooch – Aubergine peel, corn leaf, silver, steel.  « Imaginary flowers »
« Inspired by a delicate flower, my work is based on the frailty of things. I try working with materiality, using mostly natural materials such as aubergine peel and corn leaves, and trying to explore their limitations without losing the feeling of a fragile piece. That is how I create flowers that take shape in the landscapes of my dream world. Can an aubergine be transformed into a piece of jewellery? »

NIKI STYLIANOU NIKI STYLIANOU (GREECE, 1968)  Necklace - Copper, bronze, pigments, patinas.  "Mapping: traces made solid" http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/Niki_Stylianou.jpgNIKI STYLIANOU - Necklace – Copper, bronze, pigments, patinas« Mapping: traces made solid »
« Inside Out, Outside In, Upside Down, Piercing Through, Collapsing into a Trace.
Fugitive, elusive ideas on growth, space, absence and memory that attempt to manifest themselves into physical objects. »

STEFANIA SIOUFA
STEFANIA SIOUFA - Brooch - Silver, pigments, cement, brass sheets, resin, sand, plaster, mixed media. "Transform http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/Stefania_Sioufa.jpgSTEFANIA SIOUFA – Brooch – Silver, pigments, cement, brass sheets, resin, sand, plaster, mixed media. « Transformation »
«  »Transformation » means the inner change, the work I do with myself and my soul. It is the best version of me, coming from the « dialogue with myself ». Through silence, meditation and observation of my thoughts comes understanding and my need for change and internal transformation. It means the transition from negative to positive, my self-improvement, the change of course, the opening of new roads. »

 

 YIOTA VOGLI

 YIOTA VOGLI (GREECE, 1958)  Pendant - Paper, wood, acrylic, varnishes, silver, alpaca, copper, brass, steel.  "Shadow" http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/Yiota_Vogli.jpg YIOTA VOGLI – Pendant – Paper, wood, acrylic, varnishes, silver, alpaca, copper, brass, steel.  « Shadow »
« Shadow is a psychological term for everything we cannot see in ourselves. From an early age we adjust our behaviour to gratify our needs and learn to adapt to the external world. As we grow, we condition ourselves to keep all the unaccepted parts of us outside our conscious awareness, even though we drag them ‘behind us’ all the time in our subconscious. »

 

AND the GUEST ARTIST is … not exactly from Greece but also … so near, no ? ;-)

JOYA WINNER 2016
LIANA PATTIHIS
(Cyprus / United Kingdom, 1961)

LIANA PATTIHIS  - Brooch - Silver chain, enamel, stainless steel.  'Chained Interpretations' ... An ongoing study http://www.joyabarcelona.com/images/2017/Liana_Pattihis_-_JOYA_Award_low.jpgLIANA PATTIHIS – Brooch – Silver chain, enamel, stainless steel.  ‘Chained Interpretations’ … An ongoing study
« This latest collection is inspired by online sources and found images depicting flora and fauna specifically in wooded areas, which I find mysterious and intriguing. As with previous work from this series, images are chosen for their visual composition or specific geometrical aesthetic elements and are given a three dimensional ‘chained interpretation’, thus converting them into wearable pieces of jewellery.
Each enamel colour is fused and fired on the chain separately and the piece is constructed afterwards from the previously enamelled chain. Emphasis is given in the building-up and layering of the chains. This allows the piece to evolve, with the various types of chain and colours mixing and intertwining, poetically responding to the images as if they were ‘still lifes’, translating them into an impressionistic pixelated relief of textured three-dimensional layers. »

  »Très heureux de vous faire découvrir le projet sur lequel j’ai travaillé avec Florine Menant du Studio411 Galerie à Montpellier
Nous avons eu pour but de mettre sur pied une exposition pour soutenir le bijou contemporain en France et plus globalement pour soutenir le projet de loi sur les métiers d’art afin d’enfin reconnaitre au travail de la matière la possibilité d’être reconnu comme une oeuvre originale et non purement comme objet utilitaire. » Sébastien Carré -

Du 20 octobre au 12 décembre 2015, Sébastien Carré et Florine Menant présentent Transmission, une exposition de bijou contemporain et du travail artistique de la matière, au Studio 411 à Montpellier.

« Nombre de connaissances et de savoir-faire sont parvenus jusqu’à nous par l’intermédiaire de rencontres et d’échanges. Le contact et la communication ont permis de tout temps à l’Homme de se perfectionner et d’étendre nos compétences ainsi que nos connaissances. Nous avons déjà pu constater dans certaines cultures (où les échanges ont été ralentis ou stoppés) des connaissances ancestrales disparaissent et qui demandent désormais à être réinterprétées, réinventées, transmutées.
Cette exposition vise ici à faire prendre conscience que le travail de la matière ne doit jamais être réduit à un artisanat, il est bien plus que cela : il est vecteur de savoir, de culture et de sens. Il faut au contraire, bien plus le considérer comme une forme d’expression artistique contemporaine bien plus apte à faire rentrer l’art dans nos vies de tous les jours.
Célébrons les échanges et abolissons ces codes qui visent à tout faire rentrer dans des cases pour enfin réellement apprécier et vivre l’art de façon totale afin de ne pas laisser l’individualisme vider nos sociétés de ce qui fait leur beauté.
L’art n’a pas de frontière et ne demande qu’à se transformer. » Sébastien Carré

Jorge Manilla – Contemporary Savagery

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Jorge MANILLA (MEX),JOYA (ES),Mexique (MX) — bijoucontemporain @ 2:22

JOYA Barcelona 2013 presents « Jorge Manilla  - Contemporary Savagery »

«Para algunas personas la violencia es la prueba viviente de que el hombre es salvaje… para otras es el camino hacia la civilización. Sin tomar en consideración nuestra percepción y entendimiento del tema, lo único de lo que podemos estar seguros es que la violencia es parte de nuestra condición de seres humanos y está motivada por emociones crudas: miedo, pasión, celos, dolor, tristeza y hasta amor son conceptos que se encuentran dentro de las razones que llevan a la violencia. Mis objetos no son sólo materiales y formas distorsionadas sino emociones diseccionadas, memorias rotas y órganos que revelan un alma desnuda y la fragilidad de nuestra situación».

«For some people violence is living proof that man is a savage… for other people it is the road to civility. Regardless of our understanding or appreciation of the subject, the only thing that we can be sure of is that violence is a part of our human nature and is motivated through raw emotions: fear, passion, jealousy, pain, sadness and even love are concepts that are buried within the reasons for violence. My objects are not merely materials and distorted shapes but rather dissected feelings, broken memories, and dry organs that reveal a naked soul and the fragility of our situation».

Jorge Manilla durante su conferencia en Joya Barcelona 2013
Jorge Manilla durante su conferencia en Joya Barcelona 2013
D’abord, le premier … « choc ». Rencontrer Jorge Manilla. Un Monsieur du bijou. Séquence émotion. c’est que je n’ai pas l’air mais je suis très timide, et très naïve, et très impressionnable …..
Puis, le second choc …… la conférence.
Il parle, doucement, de violence. Il revient à plusieurs reprises sur « l’actualité » du Mexique, la violence des rues, les morts, les tueries, la drogue, les armes, les mafias, cette actualité à laquelle il revient, inlassablement, quotidiennement, comme malgré lui, comme attiré par un aimant. Il le dit doucement, calmement, d’une voix douce, avec un sourire, il nous parle de la mort au quotidien au Mexique, si présente, si ….. « habituelle », si … « courante », cette mort violente qui fait partie de la vie de tous les jours. Cette mort qui est partie intégrante de la vie, et plus particulièrement pour certaines cultures, sans cette crainte, cette peur ou ce refus que nous lui vouont dans nos cultures contemporaines de pays « développés » ….
Ils nous fait même rire, nous racontant ses « transferts » d’ »human ribs » trouvés dans la décharge d’un cimetière et ramenés en Hollande dans son sac à dos, son histoire,, racontée à la douane, d’os trouvés dans le jardin de sa grand’mère par le chien, le douanier et son regard entre halluciné, dubitatif, soupçonneux … « have fun with your dog » …. les « human ribs » méticuleusement nettoyés, en se posant mille questions sur QUI pouvait être cet être humain, quelle existence, quelle vie …. , les os découpés, tronçonnés, leur « beauté intérieure » et le bijou qui en découle …..
Jorge Manilla - serie 'metamorfosis divinas'  detail
Jorge Manilla – collier de la serie ‘metamorfosis divinas’  detail
Et il parle, de son travail, de sa création, de ses bijoux. Il parle de ses nouvelles créations, qui nous racontent sa vision de « sauvagerie contemporaine ». Toujours de cette voix calme. Cela « rentre », « s’enregistre », inconsciemment, comme une « petite musique de nuit ».
J’entends beaucoup ce fait qu’il vient et revient sur « son » matériau, un matériau qu’il casse et coupe et déchiquette et détruit pour se l’approprier, qu’il soit bois, cuir, os, plâtre, il lui faut le « digérer » pour le « recracher » totalement transformé, « fait sien ». Ce n’est plus du cuir, ou du bois, ou autre … c’est ….. « matériaux divers », « mixed materials », lit-on régulièrement …… c’est ce que son corps -ses mains-,  son mental, son imaginaire, son vécu, son ressenti « regurgitent ».
Un mot espagnol rend -à mon oreille- parfaitement cela : son matériau est « machacado », haché menu ….
La mort est violence faite à la vie, mais manger, mastiquer, mâcher, faire craquer les os, transformer, digérer, pour vivre, est destruction, mais EST VIE, EST violence !
Il suffit de voir un gros plan de son matériau :
Jorge Manilla - "Contemporary Savagery" (te mato por que te amo) (detail) 2013
Jorge Manilla – « Contemporary Savagery » (te mato por que te amo) (detail) 2013
C’est pure digestion, défécation, régénération, transformation, régurgitation, plus rien n’est reconnaissable, identifiable. C’est SON matériau. Alors avec ça il peut commencer à créer.
Et là, le troisième choc. Après les paroles. Je parodierais en disant « après les mots… le choc des bijoux » ! On rentre dans une salle. Obscure.
Jorge Manilla al FAD Barcelona 2013 : "Contemporary Savagery"
Jorge Manilla al FAD Barcelona 2013 : « Contemporary Savagery » (photo Morebcn)
Et noir sur noir, dans le noir, sous des spots de lumière crue, une rangée de …. bêtes ? déchets ? carcasses ? viscères desséchés ? restes d’animaux ? choses calcinées, carbonisées, d’un autre age ? …… bijoux ??!!?  vous attendent, en rangs, en silence, alignés  …..
Moi qui d’habitude tripote, essaye, retourne, là je suis déroutée, intimidée, subjuguée. Quoi faire avec … « ça » ?? le porter ? je n’ose même pas essayer …. ça a un toucher de … peau veloutée, ou rêche, de … « trucs à poils », dur et mou …
Ce n’est pas du bijou « doux », comme pourrait l’être une bague ronde et lisse en porcelaine de Violaine Ulmer par exemple, ce n’est pas du bijou « pour jours calmes », ce n’est pas un bijou « en paix », est-ce même un « bijou »? le porterais-je ? c’est un cri, une blessure, une plaie ouverte, une souffrance qui a été, un mal intériorisé, c’est …. c’est impressionnant.
Rien dire. Regarder. Se laisser imprégner. Se laisser envahir. imprimer dans sa mémoire. Se laisser marquer.

“For some people violence is living proof that man is a savage… for other people it is the road  to civility. Regardless of our understanding or appreciation of the subject, the only thing that we can be sure of is that violence is a part of our human nature.

While researching for this project, I found that most of the time humans perceive, relate to each other and are motivated through their raw emotions. For example: fear, passion, jealousy, cowardice, pain, rancor, bad blood, sadness and even love are concepts that are buried within the reasons for violence. This range of diverse emotion, rational and irrational, are the reasons why violence became the source of inspiration for my work.

In my artistic research, I decided not to work literally with violence but with violent thoughts, feelings and memories. I explore In which moment we become a victim and in which moment we are the victimizers ? As a result, I have made troubled objects in non-attractive shapes with surprising and frightening images. I created the imperfect perfection, black images that mirror and reflect our imperfect reality. My materials create cataclysmic scenes, explosions that seem to melt the objects.  

In the end my objects are no longer merely materials and distorted shapes but rather dissected feelings, broken memories, and dry organs that reveal a naked soul and the fragility of our situation”.

Jorge Manilla

and the last two from ALCHIMIA :

« Alchimiajewellery school presents ‘Tastes just like chicken….’ the Quaternitas exhibition 2011, curated by Ruudt Peters.
Michelle Kraemer and Maru Lopez present the final results after a yearlong development under the guidance of their tutor and curator. The work of both started with an exploration of gender, identity, sex, skin, touch, within the borders generated around those concepts by the individual and society.
The artists have worked in a close dialogue and with corresponding materials like fabric, latex, nylon and foam, but the resulting jewellery pieces show clearly their difference in cultural identity and personal interest.
Set up in the beautiful entrance hall of Alchimia, the exhibition is articulated in two installations referring to the display of ‘organic material’ , one related to commerce (the butcher) the other to curiosity and science (the natural history museum).«

«Cheveu un bijou !!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur

«!Tranchez-lui la tête!!! Cheveu un bijou!!!» hurle la Dame de Coeur, dans Alice …

mais … faut pas se faire de cheveux dans la vie !! ici, on est à un poil du bijou ….. si ce ne sont pas des bijoux au poil !! ;-)

Au-delà du dégoût que peut susciter l’emploi d’un tel matériau (à la « grande époque » du bijou en cheveux, à l’époque Victorienne, mode lancée par la très romantique Reine Victoria, cet engouement eu un grand succès dans les pays anglo-saxons mais suscita du dégoût et un certain rejet en France et dans le reste de l’Europe), ce n’est pas étonnant, à mon sens, qu’il suscite tant d’attrait parmi la jeune génération de bijoutiers : à force d’interroger le rapport du bijou au corps, le corps s’incorpore petit à petit au bijou lui-même.

« Contemporary art is getting hairy Long and silky; short and curly. Blond, brunette, red or grey. It’s hair and it has an important part in our perceptions of ourselves. It defines gender and visual identity, and is playing an important role lately in art — in jewelry, drawings or in mixed media pieces. Hair has long had a role in the work of artists and artisans. In the Victorian era, creating jewelry from hair became almost as popular as knitting or crocheting.  By using one’s own hair or that of a beloved family member women were able to design bracelets, chains, rings and earrings. Apart from jewelry, mourners would weave hair into decorative, memorial wall hangings. By the early 1900s using hair fell out of fashion. During the past 15 years, however, there’s been a fascination among contemporary artists using skin, nail clippings, urine and hair to create various forms of art. Fascinated with Victorian hair jewelry, artist and jewelry designer Melanie Bilenker has revived the art form. Like the Victorians who kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love, renders the « quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments » from her own tresses. Bilenker observes various daily activities such as cleaning, bathing, dressing, resting or eating. She chronicles the private moments by setting the camera’s timer and goes about her business which can be anything such as eating chocolate, writing a note or enjoying a Saturday morning breakfast. Once she has the photographed images, Bilenker creates tracings of the forms within ghem with thousands of tiny strands of her own hair – which are eventually fixed in resin.  She meticulously layers several different drawings to give the appearance of depth, one as foreground, another as background.  The entire process takes the course of about a week of laying hairs, mixing resin, and then allowing it to cure.  Says Bilenker, « Once the hairs are set as line drawings within resin, I shape, smooth and polish the exterior.  I then fabricate the jewelry findings and set them.  The piece is then complete. »" (Courtesy Melanie Bilenker and Sienna Gallery)

« Puisant dans la tradition des bijoux en cheveux, matériau depuis longtemps collecté dans des foires et marchés ou dans l’intimité des familles pour devenir parure, Ana Goalabré se joue de cet usage en coupant une de ses mèches et en y taillant une bague qu’elle envoie à un homme accompagnée de la missive «J’aimerais tant passer mes doigts dans tes cheveux». Cette phrase, appel érotique d’un corps d’artiste, devient le titre d’une série déclinant divers contenus aimants et sensuels, traditionnellement gardés jusqu’alors implicites au nom d’une morale et d’une bienséance rigoureuse et qui tout à coup semblent avoir gagné le droit de dire clairement le désir, qu’il s’agisse de celui d’une mère, d’un père, d’une amante, d’un amant… et ce dans toute sa trivialité. Pourtant, il n’y a aucune charge obscène dans ces bagues. Qu’elles soient très travaillées ou reprennent le mouvement naturel d’une mèche de cheveux, elles nous renvoient à nos jeux tactiles dans les cheveux de l’autre, en fixant le mouvement, image arrêtée puis détachée du corps pour n’en garder que la sensation. »

maria ignacia walker - MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellery School 2013 - 2015: Maria Ignacia Walker – MFA JEWELLERY AND BODY ORNAMENTS Alchimia contemporary jewellerySchool 2013 – 2015 –   A simple fact of life that María Ignacia Walker obsesses over: The shedding of hair. The obsession – losing them, collecting them, ordering them, measuring them and archiving them. The desire – to preserve these losses – It gives rise to “transcendieron”.  The discourse is not about beauty and it is not about sensuality, not even about cultural symbols that hair carries.  How much hair do you lose constantly, everyday ? How many pieces grow out of your body and die every moment ?  “The transcendents” are a homage to the moments when you lose your hair. Captured and immortalized in the fragility of the porcelain, they give perpetuity and freeze all their expressions in the moment of their detachment from the body. With a threading method, the artist uses horsehair as connectors. They show the lightness, energy and freedom, while demonstrating the real, natural movement of the hair. Together with the act of keeping and protecting the hair in a porcelain form, they are given another life that keeps them present through their absence.

In addition, her work will be featured by an AJF member gallery at the Sculptural Object and Functional Art (SOFA) Expo in Chicago and in AJF ads, and she will serve as a juror for next year’s competition.
Jurors for the 2010 competition were Namita Wiggers, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland, Oregon; Susan Beech, long-standing member of AJF and collector of contemporary jewelry; and Sharon Massey, jeweler and recipient of the AJF’s 2009 Emerging Artist Award.
Criteria used in the judging were originality, depth of concept and quality of craftsmanship.  Larsson used carbon and horse hair in this series of work she submitted. She allows the material to lead the way through the working process, drawing inspiration from thoughts about gravity, lightness and heaviness, death, life, transparency and darkness, growth, decomposition and transformation to show contrasts like fragility and strength, depth and surface, darkness and light.
Juror Susan Beech commented, ‘This body of work most exemplified the guidelines for judging: originality, depth of concept and quality of craftsmanship. The use of carbon and horsehair, original materials, work well together. The first thought that came to mind when I looked at this body of work was elegant.’ Sharon Massey added, ‘Agnes Larsson presents a cohesive body of work that I found quite unusual and poetic. Her forms are simple, emphasizing the texture and blackness of the carbon as well as the fragility of the horsehair. Her artistic voice seemed the most authentic and unique.’
Larsson received a BFA, in 2004, and an MFA, in 2007, in Silversmithing and Jewellery from Konstfack University College of Arts, Craft and Design, Stockholm, Sweden. (AJF blog)

BKV-Preis für Junges Kunsthandwerk 2010 :  3rd Preis: Agnes Larsson (Schweden, Stockholm)

Karbon, kohlenstofffaserverstärkter Kunststoff, ist ein ungewöhnliches Material für Schmuck. Bei der Herstellung der Stücke spielte auch der Zufall eine Rolle. Die Farbe Schwarz, die reizvollen Oberflächen, die Bruchspuren: Erst bei der bewussten Beschränkung auf einfache, aber elegante Grundformen kommen sie zum Tragen. Ein wirkungsvoller Kontrast ergibt sich auch daraus, dass die schwer wirkenden Objekte in Wirklichkeit ziemlich leichtgewichtig sind.

(le charbon …. est un matériau rare pour les bijoux. Dans la fabrication des pièces « l’accident » a également joué un rôle. La couleur noire, les belles surfaces, les traces de fractures : ce n’est que lorsque la restriction délibérée des formes de base entre en jeu, simples mais élégantes. Un contraste efficace en raison du fait que les objets, d’apparence lourds, sont en fait assez légers en réalité)(traduction google …)

From there it evolved into different shapes and forms and it is one of the collections that I continually return to, and inevitably end up adding to it.

Jacqueline de JONG, NLpommes de jong‘ – 2009  varying sizes cm – jewelry – mixed media (gold-dipped potato skin)  

For her current exhibition, de Jong has created a series of potato bijoux, “Pommes de Jong.” They consist of potatoes laid out to dry until they are totally shrivelled, and then dipped, roots and all, in a bath of molten gold, with surprising results – jewel-like objects in weird and wonderful forms.
Her interest in integrating the humble potato, which she cultivates in her garden in France, into her art, began in 2001 with her series of paintings inspired by Malevich, as the hair of The Farmer’s Wife (”Potato Hair”). This was followed in 2002 by a painted dialogue (”Harvest”) with the pioneering Russian artist.This theme continued with “Aardappeltaal’ (Potato Language), a collaboration with Jennifer Tee at the Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven in 2003. In 2006, participated in the Biennale di Ceramica dell’arte (curated by Roberto Orth), in Albissola, Italy, with an installation of ceramic objects of “baked potatoes” for the home and garden of the Danish artist Asger Jorn (1914-1973).

L’exposition, composée de peintures, sculptures et bijoux, expose ses ‘Pommes De Jong’.  Jacqueline de Jong est une artiste de renommée internationale, son travail est dans de nombreux musées et collections internationales.  Actuellement, à part Winterswijk, elle expose à Livourne (Italie).

Elle partage actuellement son temps entre Amsterdam et un village du Bourbonnais (France). Formée en tant que graphiste, elle pratique tous les arts visuels. Elle travaille la peinture, mais elle crée aussi des objets en trois dimensions et de la céramique.  Huit œuvres majeures, portant le titre « Harvest », peuvent être vues au Musée Freriks.  L’influence de Malevitch et du mouvement COBRA est clairement reconnaissable.

Actuellement, elle est fascinée par ses bijoux de pommes de terre, les « Pommes de Jong ».   « Fuite de pommes de terre aussi longtemps tarie tout le liquide est parti, et aller dans un goudbad, avec des résultats surprenants » (euuuhh …. c’est google qui le dit !). Cela donne des broches et des pendentifs ou des pièces d’art mobiles. « Pommes De Jong » est au Musée Freriks jusqu’au 5 Septembre 2010.
