EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Iro KASKANI – The space in between

Classé dans : Chypre (CY),COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Iro KASKANI (CY) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:30

Iro Kaskani
« The space in between »

Fil rouge à suivre, que je suis depuis un moment déjà, fil rouge rompu, changement de cap ? Mais il reste toujours et encore ces espaces, vides? architecturaux? liés par un fil, même s’il n’est plus rouge …..

« I aim to build « flesh » around a metal frame with an original surface of « skin ». I would like to create forms that give evidence of their structural elements : an internal support, core or axis, a body growing around it and finally an external surface, the skin. » Iro Kaskani, JOYA 2016

« Iro Kaskani studied architecture and jewelry design in Florence, Italy.
Her education and experience in architecture guides her creativity. Her work is mostly determined by the interest to compose fine metals with alternative materials and define new forms. She does not consider a piece of jewelry to be destined just for decorative purposes. If it was so, it would be so limiting. Jewelry becomes one with the person wearing it and unites with his/her unique personality. This is the true essence that influences and provides meaning to her work. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Pilar COTTER attachante

Pilar COTTER

One of her series’ work I loved so much was « Des-nudo« , some knots done in/with the ceramic, as if to remember something …..

Pilar Cotter  est si discrète dans son travail, difficile de trouver de l’information !
ces noeuds faits à ses broches, comme pour ne pas oublier …. je n’ai pas oublié ! « RE-CUERDA » : rappelle toi ! ou « à propos de corde », avec souvent une empreinte textile, faisant croire à un morceau de toile, ou de corde, faisant douter du matériau utilisé …. Elle fait visiblement beaucoup de workshops, d’ateliers, donne des conférences …..

 « Como otros creadores mis intenciones en la joyería a veces son sencillas, la búsqueda de la belleza en un sentido profundo. Hacer que el objeto dialogue con aspectos del valor, apoyado en otros factores que en la actualidad parecen volatilizarse. Piezas hechas con tiempo, un tiempo humano y cargadas de humanidad, que intentan hablar de la minuciosidad de este mundo de la joya, hablar de las cosas pensadas hasta encontrar ese punto donde todo se armoniza. » (Context Gal.)

 Pilar Cotter:

« Des-nudo »

  »Musings about transit in communication.
I understand transit as the distance allowed to an emitter between thought and verb, this fictitious hallway where thoughts are filtered, will always be affected by the emotional context enveloping the emitter.
I suppose there are no fixed formulas to activate or facilitate the sorting of this series of emotional complexities which will give rise to either contention or fluidity. Words such as baring or untying come to my head from the collective imaginarium. Words directly related to comunication. Baring implies an act of transparency, untying, the decision to overcome any conflict to transmit what one wishes.  This is how we tie and untie, show and hide, this is how we retain and let go.«

« The beginnings of her works are related to human nature: “I start from sensations or conversations, sometimes some event motivates me to begin with the innocence of not really knowing where I’m going and, little by little, I become aware of the process.”Pilar mainly uses porcelain.  “I know that at some moment I will have to dialogue with other materials, but I’m fascinated understanding porcelain, its appearance, its strength and fragility at the same time, and its extreme subtlety.”
Sometimes Pilar Cotter’s work moves away from jewelry, when she uses other resources such as photography or installation to express herself, for example in her latest work titled DES-NUDO, in which from the word itself she raises questions about communication. She is very interested in seeing things done with technological media and refers to the works of the Canadian artist and architect Philip Beesley. » (blog.mardecolorrosa 2012)

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Rafael Luis Alvarez – DECOUVERTE, COUP de COEUR !

Le plus excitant !! DECOUVRIR un « nouveau » créateur de bijoux ! :-)

Bienvenue à Rafael Luis Alvarez qui fait partie des Joyeros Argentinos -  et c’est un MONDE qui s’ouvre à nous, que dis-je, un « KOSMOS » !

c’est pur, délicat, aérien …. comme des éclaboussures de lait …. lumineux …..

« Comienzo a estudiar en el Taller “La Nave” del orfebre Jorge Castañon en el año 1992.
Entre los años 1996 y 2000 estudio en la Escuela Municipal de Joyería de Buenos Aires “Sergio Lukez” en las especialidades de grabado, engarce, joyería y cincelado.
Continúo luego del año 2000 realizando estudios en Esmalte sobre Metales, con la Prof Beatriz Cabrera, aplicación de Laca Japonesa con Francine Schloeth, y actualmente desde el año 2012, con la diseñadora Irina Fiszelew. »

Rafael Alvarez - KOSMOS - PIN DE LA COLECCION GEA: Rafael Alvarez - KOSMOS – pin   GEA 4

KOSMOS
« “La seducción del espacio
La colección Kosmos, representa para mí algo más que un trabajo de joyería contemporánea, generar espacio, abrirlo, interpelarlo y producir un cambio.
“Separar las palmas, encontrar el sol,
Abrir las manos, ver caer la luz,  y retroceder  la oscuridad”
Gracias a Joyeros Argentinos, a Laura en particular, es que puedo contar la historia del proceso y transformación.
Comencé buscando un concepto que me permitiera, transformar un tipo de joyería (como la que venía realizando) en otra (nueva , inesperada), buscando cualidades que me acercaran hacia lo femenino.
Lo sutil, etéreo, contenedor, fueron luego de seis meses de búsqueda, con el apoyo y seguimiento de Irina Fiszelew, las imágenes que me condujeron al espacio como poseedor de las mismas.
Definido el comienzo del camino, me sumergí plenamente en la búsqueda del material adecuado que representara la propuesta inicial. Dicho proceso fue más largo, ya que estuvo lleno de idas y vueltas,  luego de un año y medio, concluí  sin un resultado favorable,  fue en ese momento que comencé(con los materiales que había construido) a realizar cuadros, objetos espaciales, esculturas, que resultaron en formas generadoras de espacio ideales para fotografiar y pintar.
Así que sin  tener todavía una pieza de joyería lista, disponía de gran cantidad de fotos representativas de la idea, mas cuadros al oleo con técnicas mixtas,  grafitos, pasteles, que me permitieron seguir desarrollando Kosmos desde un lugar inesperado.
Tomando registro con una pequeña máquina fotográfica con video, es que agregue este formato para continuar el proceso.
Fue cuando finalmente había terminado esta etapa, que sin saber bien porque o tal vez por haber seguido la búsqueda, y no resignar la construcción de joyería, encontré el caucho (caoutchouc) como el material adecuado para aportar elasticidad y flexibilidad a las futuras piezas.
Quedaba todavía un tiempo, de aproximadamente un año para construir la colección o parte de ella, (las series GEA y CERES que vieron recientemente la luz),  ya disponía de material en fotos, video, pinturas y también no quiero olvidarme Escritos que fueron decisivos en la búsqueda de la imagen del conjunto. Cada paso no estuvo libre de avances y vueltas atrás, problemas que parecían no tener solución, hasta que  la encontraba luego de un tiempo de trabajo y experimentación.
No quiero seguir extendiéndome,  valía la pena contarlo ya que arribé al resultado por un camino poco habitual, y cuando finalmente llegue, el final era inesperado, había arribado a KOSMOS algo más que una colección de joyería, un conjunto de materialidades y formatos que conducían a la misma idea.
La seducción por recorrer espacios nuevos inexplorados, misteriosos e intrincados.
La búsqueda, la experimentación y finalmente todo el aprendizaje implicado, fueron un camino de cambio.
Ya no trabajo igual en joyería ni en ningún proyecto después de todo este proceso.
Logré finalmente abrir el KOSMOS. »  Rafael Álvarez

la colección KOSMOS, por ahora, esta compuesta de dos subcolecciones CERES (Diosa de la agricultura) y GEA (GAIA para los franceses …) la diosa madre origen del todo. Estan construidas en hilo y fibras con Caucho siliconado

« Pensé ….. en lo sutil y contenedor, lo liviano y etéreo, la intuición, lo fantástico y la imaginación.
Surgió “El espacio” como poseedor de todas esas categorías.
El cosmos, un gran hueco que se crea a cada instante, nuestro espacio cercano que a cada minuto aparece y desaparece interpelado por sus límites.
El tiempo que demandó esta colección, me llevo a la creación de un material adecuado que genera espacio e invita a transitarlo.
Kosmos” un universo femenino, Gea, Ceres, Maya, Venus, Diana, Metis, Io y Hera, son las mujeres que como colecciones, habitan este espacio.
Representantes de una estirpe mitológica que al mirar el infinito no nombramos aunque estén presentes. » KOSMOS

Jeemin Jamie Chung I Art Jewellery‎The Presence | Solo Exhibition - AmarantoJoies

« My works can be defined from the interests and the background of my life with constant new meetings, farewells, and adapting to diverse cultures.
I like to create and show my beliefs and values throughout my work. In my previous works I have expressed nature, in particular the form and structural changes as a plant grows, into movable Art Jewelry.
With the same context and interests I have changed my approach to the works I create. I have been focusing on improvising the ideas of presence into my Art Jewelry. The works I wanted to present is a reflection of me partly revealing the moments of my life… »

« One day, an idea had made me curious, curious about the existence of the nonexistent. The nonexistent form that can be translated into my own way by giving boundaries to irregular changes. This theme has challenged me to express my way of thinking.  I was fascinated by the existence of the invisibleness. It clearly does not show the existence itself, but it reveals through other forms. 
 This exhibition will be the first step in my way of showing the invisibleness. I will continuously think and question myself about this theme, which will lead to my next series in the future. 
Now, I would like to ask my audience, have you thought about the existence of the nonexistent? »

COUP de COEUR / COUP de BLUES : Chrisoula PAPAHATZI

Classé dans : Chrisoula PAPAHATZI (GR),COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),RAGTAG Collective (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:32

Chrisoula Papahatzi & her « INNER VIEW » 2015 collection presented at JOYA 2015 Barcelona.

She is part of the RagTag collective  (The Ragtag collective was formed in 2012 by six contemporary jewellery artists from Greece – They are: Chrisoula Papahatzi George Giannoutsos Ismini Pachi Kalliope Theodoropoulou Vasia Pachi Yannis Tsalapatis)

« My name is Chrysoula and I live in Athens, Greece. Some years ago I discovered the world of metal and jewelry making.
I like to combine metal with precious or semi-precious stones and more «humble» materials like resin or found objects.
The ideas that I work on come from the observation of things, feelings and experiences like a walk in the forest, an old photo, clouds, ruins, the shape of objects, the pleasure of making something, metal’s flexibility.
I enjoy the design and the fabrication processes because they transform these ideas into something solid: a fragment of imagination that can sit on a finger, embrace the arm, caress a neck, or even whisper in someone’s ear. »

La Grèce en bijoux …. coins de ciel ou de mer, mais cachés, intériorisés (toujours à l’arrière du bijou), le bleu des dômes d’églises, dans les îles, un escalier, une esquisse de maison, qui s’ouvre, accueille …. des marches, accéder à « la vieille cité » (paleochora) …. commencer par « la petite maison dans un nuage » et finir par « home alone » …. ou l’inverse ? ma tendre et rugueuse Grèce, en rêve(s) et dans mon coeur ………..

New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Manon van Kouswijk Pearl Grey necklace, 2008 / Pearl Grey Revisited necklace, 2015 Glass elements (saucer, hand formed cup handle with attached glass beads), diverse glass and plastic beads, polyester thread, glue.  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

The original « Pearl Grey » of 2009 was an assemblage work consisting of found and made elements of porcelain, glass, wood, plastic and pearl. It referenced a traditional cup and saucer of which the cup had been magically replaced by a bead necklace. For this new work I have translated that idea to the typology of a glass ‘saucer and cup’. It is again a combination of found and made elements but this time the work is completely transparent; almost like an x-ray of it’s predecessor

Gésine Hackenberg Still Life, 2009 / Pink Balancing Glass brooch, 2015 Glass by Theresienthal, silver  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Gésine Hackenberg Still Life, 2009 / Pink Balancing Glass brooch, 2015 Glass by Theresienthal, silver  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

The ‘Still Life’ Brooches that I have made between 2009 and 2012 can be seen as a contemporary interpretation of 17th and 18th century Dutch Still Life paintings. This subject was preferable used to portray items of daily life that were emotionally and economically significant for people of that time.  Within my ‘Still Lifes’, I sliced existing glasswork and rearranged them into new compositions. They represented a perfect translation of the three dimensional to the two dimensional, the realistic vista of the glasses to the medium of jewellery. The body is taking on the role of the canvas as it were…  Within the new work I explored another way of looking at tableware than in a static composition: I wanted to express a certain precarious dynamic that is inherent to drinking glasses during a sociable meal. I tried to catch this moment of a glass tumbling, undecided yet if it is going to fall or stay upright.

 Sari Liimatta But I love Him object, 2005 / But they don´t love him pendant, 2015 Glass beads, metal link, thread (polyamide), a plastic toy  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Sari Liimatta But I love Him object, 2005 / But they don´t love him pendant, 2015 Glass beads, metal link, thread (polyamide), a plastic toy  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

Just as men are not just men, and women just women, meat is never just meat. It has it´s past and origin, a story which is so often simply forgotten. Living creatures which are very much alive until they are nothing more than materials, for those who still choose to use them. Even the life before their death is so often more than problematic, as we all know. As we all know.

 Annelies Planteijdt Beautiful City - Pink Stairs necklace, 2001 / Beautiful City-Pink Stairs Black Crystal necklace, 2015 Gold, Tantalum, pigment  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Annelies Planteijdt Beautiful City – Pink Stairs necklace, 2001 / Beautiful City-Pink Stairs Black Crystal necklace, 2015 Gold, Tantalum, pigment  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015 

 I started to re-consider a piece from 2001, that never has been sold, although I liked it very much, ‘Beautiful City – Pink Stairs’.  This piece is really symmetrical, so I decided to look for a way to separate it in two parts and finish both parts in a different way, in order to get two different pieces. I have re-collected parts of other (unsold) pieces from about the same time (1999 and 2000) and have been re-approaching and re-thinking them: I made ‘Crystals’ with them, like I did in my most recent work. So I have been mixing time and thinking. And size: the sizes I used earlier were different from the sizes I used in the later ‘Beautiful City’ series, they wouldn’t have fit. But because the ‘Crystals’ are liquid (they adapt to the square) the size of the elements was not importantanymore. So I could re-take these old pieces into the new time now, I have re-used them, re-connected them.
This ‘expansion’ offered me more possibilities: I re-used the material I already had without loss of material or time. The possibility to re-make the old pieces still exists. And it gave me two new pieces. So I multiplied my possibilities. A new life.

 Noon Passama Formal Research - A necklace, 2015 / Formal Research - H rings, 2015 Rigid clay, silver, gold  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015.: Noon Passama Formal Research – A necklace, 2015 / Formal Research – H rings, 2015 Rigid clay, silver, gold  New work designed for Klimt02 Gallery in occasion of the exhibition To Recover, Barcelona, October 2015

 Formal Research – A necklace (2015) composing of six chain units is the starting point of the group of six rings. A closed-end loop of each ring was divided in sections, one / two / three /… / six, by the difference between the fat and thin parts. The works were made under the following keywords: dividing / sequencing / sizing.
Formal Research initially focused on one classical type of jewellery: the chain. The project is mainly about the form of each connecting chain unit and how the unit connects to its neighbours.
During the sculpting process, the shapes were transformed because of them being in the hand and through time. I did not edit the outcomes and will present the rings as they are. The try-outs are the finals and vice versa.

 In the Nineties, in the making of the older brooch, my goal was to control the metal, to have the metal do whatever I wanted. In this latest brooch, made a few days ago, I let instead the metal take control over myself, and let it take me wherever its will would go.

The reason why I chosen my self-portrait, is that it is probably one of my most well known pieces of jewellery. It is made in steel and etched.  The material and techniques I mostly work with. For the Re-version I saw out the silhouette in 2 mm veneer, divided the image in 3 parts and painted them in similar but for each piece different colours, before I glued them together. The fact that they are divided in three parts, with the dark sawing-line between, gives them a comic-like impression.
This impression is even emphasised by the bigger size, which is possible by the lightness of the material, and is completely different from the original steel-one. While the surface of the steel-portrait and other previous work was the key technology for building the image, the colour for some years been a part of my jewellery.

 

To revisit, remake, salvage, reinterpret, adapt, convert, converse, rethink…
  Why have we asked some of the artists we work with as gallery owners to reinterpret one of their works? We could say it’s because we’re interested in talking about time. And by “revisiting” we mean discussing the notion of time. But in what way? That’s the question.
Time passes, it is made, interpreted, felt and suffered, it escapes, drifts away, becomes trapped or stretched, sometimes it is intelligently ignored and, why not, it is exercised. Reinterpreting a work, a fiction or precis is a way of addressing time, a way of exploring a landscape in order to try and understand it. And we thought this exercise would provide an interesting opportunity to discuss time.
Revisiting in order to reflect… an exercise for the artist.
  Are there any changes in these artists’ works? Should there be? Is time involved? Without a shadow of a doubt, the answer is yes. But that barely scrapes the surface of what we want to know.
We’re more likely to find out what we want to know if the work enables us to answer questions such as: What kind of time is involved? Is there any usefulness? Is there any spirituality? Are there any aesthetics? Is there any abstraction? Is there any progress?
The exhibition is also designed to be understood through an analysis of the different types of answers provided by the works as a whole. As you will see, there are answers that simplify, offering minor changes, non-answers, coherent answers (if you have prior knowledge of the artist’s trajectory), inspired answers, uninventive answers… As we have said, evaluating the “revisits” as a whole provides additional knowledge.
When it comes down to it, what we most value is the sensation we observe and feel when the artist takes some distance and moves away from the centre stage in an attempt to provide an answer. As observers, we believe this circumstance helps to achieve universality and thus provide an intellectual satisfaction, that of communicating and objectifying the creation to the full in order to express and play with a more authentic reality.
Revisiting in order to look afresh… the viewer’s exercise.
We switch from observation to understanding, and vice versa. We observe in order to find differences between similar things and we understand when we find similarities between different things. Accustomed as we are today to viewing several pieces in a highly random fashion, pausing to stop in order to take a fresh look at a work “inaugurated” some time ago is another exercise we wish to propose. This exercise may help us assimilate better in this era of accumulation and, on occasions, superficiality. There can be no doubt that the way in which a work attracts and engages us is based on the knowledge we may have of it.
Knowledge without criticism is an indication of the end of everything. Yet, on the other hand, what can be said of criticism without knowledge? Are we capable of enjoying what these workers of art offer us? Will we be capable of evaluating what they show us? Can we offer knowledge-based criticism? Frankly, we find there is a lack of humility on the part of the viewer. And we’re all viewers.
Let’s enjoy this opportunity.

COUP de COEUR – de FIL en …. FIL, avec Ismini Pachi

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),Ismini PACHI (GR),RAGTAG Collective (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 3:23

 Ismini Pachi …..   Childhood dreams or adult reality?

Since graduating from the department of Philosophy, Pedagogy and Psychology of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, she has been studying jewelry design.
Her academic background in Psychology as well as her strong interest in dance and creative movement have inspired her to design jewelry that combine two basic elements, the human figures and the surrounding space defined by their movement.
Her work reflects her interest in several contrasting elements such as solid-drilled, concealed – evident, soft- hard, light-dark, fairytale-reality.
‘’What mostly stimulates me is the way in which different materials are mixed together to develop dialogue and stories as well as how they are combined in a way that is visually, physically and emotionally pleasant.
The movement and elasticity of the materials plays a crucial role in the creative process.
My intention is to create the perception of dance through movement where the materials change forms, diminish and grow but always keep a stable basis as a reference point.’’

Akis Goumas veut me présenter un certain nombre de ses (anciens) élèves … je zappe …. le « GREEK team » devient d’année en année plus consistant … et plus épatant ! j’en peux plus …. dernière soirée je ne sais plus où …. et là, je VOIS, je TOMBE, je CRAQUE sur un BRACELET !  (que je commande immédiatement tellement c’est le coup de foudre !).

 « Childhood dreams or adult reality? » –  » This collection expresses my need to create spaces where I could incorporate the dreams, memories and experiences of the past in the present in order not to get lost or be forgotten. What mostly stimulates me is the way in which different materials are mixed together to develop dialogue and stories as well as how they are combined in a way that is visually, physically and emotionally pleasant. Having the human and its inner world as basic element in my work, my forms are given in accordance with these elements. Creating spaces that have a playful dimension, I manage to keep childish characteristics in adult work. That is where I believe the inspiration comes and takes off. »
