Leonor Hipólito – object/pendant : Beyond Emotions 2012 – Goldplated brass

« Beyond Emotions projects moments of my life that lingered in my mind for a long time blurring the boundaries between emotions of the past and the present. In the attempt to visualize them, by the exercise of producing works, I am not illustrating but rather evoking an emotional content. Wearable, they hold onto the body playing their role as metaphors for both placement and displacement.
Beyond Emotions is also a book in which my works and my writings interweave with one another to form a single picture yet variable in perspective.
The book was realized in collaboration with Arne Kaiser who did the photography and graphic design. » Leonor Hipólito 2012

EXPO ‘Mirror Mirror’ – Espace Solidor, Cagnes-sur-mer (FR) – 23 Juin-23 Sept. 2012

Du 23 juin au 23 septembre : « Mirror Mirror »
Une exposition en hommage à Suzy Solidor, sur une proposition de Jo Bloxham et Benjamin Lignel.

Cagnes-sur-mer« Vingt-neuf artistes, de quatorze pays différents, ont répondu à notre invitation et se sont penchés sur la vie de Suzy Solidor. Nous croyons que la diversité de leurs réponses constitue un tribut à un parcours de vie hors normes, et qu’il est propice de la lire en dialogue avec les tableaux présentés du Château. Miroir déformé de sa collection de portraits, elle la prolonge (ces bijoux et objets sont souvent eux-mêmes des portraits), mais “l’exagère” aussi. En effet, les pratiques représentées ici ne sont pas mimétiques : il n’est pas question de “ressembler” à un sujet, mais d’équiper ses fictions identitaires : “je suis pirate / chanteuse / mangeuse d’hommes et de femmes / malouine échappée à Paris… pour y chanter des histoires de bord de mer”.
Le bijou a ceci de singulier qu’il identifie son propriétaire. Il le désigne, mais l’invente aussi : quel meilleur medium que le bijou pour alimenter la mythomanie légère de Solidor ?
Si elles dialoguent avec Suzy, les oeuvres montrées ici le font aussi avec la pratique du bijou contemporain elle-même. Ce dernier point a guidé nos choix photographiques dans la composition de ce catalogue. Au lieu de reproduire les objets détourés sur fond blanc, ce qui aurait encouragé une lecture sculpturale des pièces, nous avons préféré rendre à chaque objet sa taille relative, et photographier chaque double-page en une seule prise de vue en y laissant les indices d’un déballage récent. Notre propos était de rendre manifeste l’envers du décor des expositions de bijou contemporain : sa dimension logistique, et la réalité de ces colis qui voyagent d’un bout du monde à l’autre pour arriver à Cagnes-sur-Mer (les “boites” s’envoleront à nouveau après cette première exposition vers la galerie Velvet da Vinci de San Francisco). Cette quête de réalisme aura été l’occasion d’établir des correspondances imprévues entre les pièces en vis-à-vis : ultimes miroirs dont nous espérons qu’ils enrichiront la lecture de chaque oeuvre.
L’invitation faite à chaque artiste de créer un bijou “pour quelqu’un” reproduit des schémas de commande très conventionnels dans les arts appliqués : on verra cependant dans les pages suivantes à quel point leurs réponses ne le sont pas.«

« My musical study and performance has paralleled my concentration in visual art throughout my life. This interest has prompted an investigation into the dialogue that exists between the sound that is perceived in one’s Imagination and the sound that one hears in reality. As our sense of hearing allows us to interact with external sound, I am pursuing a three dimensional exploration of the ear through chasing and repousse’ in precious metal. »

Leonor HIPOLITO – natures mortes

from 2006 exhibition « Still-life / Natureza morta » at Velvet da Vinci Gallery
« While walking along the way I looked at the landscape that suddenly started to grow. Through my eyes the trees seemed to multiply, nature expand. Suddenly standing in a field of light and shadow I gazed at this new reflected landscape, this immaterial but real landscape, intense but brief. From its fleeting presence I tried to keep in memory a reality that never existed before and within its shadows to preserve the remembrance of that view.« 
je ne connaissais pas ces travaux de Leonor Hipolito qui sont, je dirais, d’un silence, d’une sérénité et d’une beauté qui me parlent ………

MIAM ! des bijoux ! …… CHOCOLAT & C°…

en tout cas, si ce n’est le chocolat, qui inspire enormément (et particulièrement celui servi aux soirées de « l’Ambassadeur » ….. ;-) …..), la denrée alimentaire, détournée, inspire, et aspire à son rôle de bijou …. le stade « collier de pâtes » est largement dépassé, actuellement, un repas complet est possible, des « antipasti » au dessert ! quant ce n’est pas ce qui reste après un bon « gueuleton » qui nous est servi comme bijou … n’est ce pas Patricia Lemaire ???!!? emoticone

En tout cas, le thème a l’air d’être dans l’air du temps : voir le projet « Aesthetic Nutrition » d’Ana Cardim (juillet 2010) que je viens de trouver dans la dernière newsletter de Klimt02  : « With her project ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’, Ana Cardim seeks attention for the idea of the difference in quantity, and levels of value, between the esthetic value of gold and the value given to the basic human need for food. »

 

« I want to call attention to the power, importance, and beauty of   food. In our culture of  fast, disposable, and store-bought food, we often misunderstand our relationship to what we eat » ( Venetia Moushey Dale, in « 500 necklaces » book)

Mouche caramel/ caramel beauty spot   by Manolya KonukManolya Konuk- Mouche caramel/ caramel beauty spot (patch)

`Mute language` was used in the17th century by European aristocracy, as a way to talk with symbols rather than words. This beauty spot was a way to signify the intentions and dispositions of lovers.
Placing on the face or breast each have different meaning. As a finery made from caramel, the sweet jewel becomes a temptation to be eaten from the body itself. // Langague muet du XVII ème siècle, les mouches étaient le moyen de signifier ses intentions et ses dispositions. Ici de parure, le bijou sucré se fait tentation (Manolya Konuk- en vente à la Tate gallery)

Stephanie Hensle (DE)- ‘MEAT-LOVER’

« Meat. The word alone polarizes. For some it represents the sensuous, the erotic, life and carnal lust. For others it arouses associations of morbidity, decay and death. In its archaic and raw state it triggers aversion in many, but is welcome when served as a fragrant roast. It is peddled in discount shops and bargain counters, or traded for 200 euros per kilo.  Delving into these contrasting worlds, Stephanie Hensle explores the luxury of meat in context of adornment, indulging our lust for both on many levels. Inspired by the art of butchery, she packs resins, jewels and other traditional jewellery pieces into sausages and pâté. Throughout she redefines not only a typology for jewellery but also our relationships to creating and acquiring it. The act of slicing („100 grams of brooch, please“) defines the pedant or brooch pieces while addressing the system of value associated with jewellery. Typical sausage netting, meat hooks or skewers become fasteners attaching the pieces to the wearer. Left over pieces are wrapped like cold cuts for the purchaser‘s consumption.  A third group of pieces reflects on the human body as meat. Neck and body pieces hang like detached organs or mysterious growths. Cut open, they allow a glimpse into the skin-colored insides. And remind us, that the line between beauty and disquiet is fine yet elegant. » (Stephanie Hensle)

Le collier de la reine/ The queen necklaceManolya Konuk – ‘Le collier de la Reine’ – Here, perhaps more than in the other pieces, the material has taken up all importance. The queen necklace was the necklace of Marie Antoinette and hence can be seen as a prelude to the French Revolution. Symbol of excess and decadence, this jewel, never worn, caused the demise of the French Monarchy. Playing with words again, this chocolate abundance can provoke a ‘’crise de foi(e)’ which can be translated both as ‘‘sick by food’ as ‘‘loss of faith’.

Anika Smulovitz - Chocolate (a collaboration with artist Catherine Clark Gilbertson) -2002 – Ferrero Rocher chocolate wrappers

« This body of work explores human interaction with objects, specifically the interaction of our lips with objects. While examining the psychological and sociological potency of chocolate in the pieces entitled Love Tokens, I became aware of the sensual power of our lips. This culminated in Chocolate, a collaborative interactive installation comprised of a series of impressions made in the gold foil wrappers of Ferrero Rocher chocolates. The impressions are of puckered lips or teeth. In its use of repetition, mass quantities of « faux » gold foil, reference to chocolate and to the mouth, the installation speaks of consumption, indulgence, passion, and consumerism. » (Anika Smulovitz)

«  Gioielli da mangiare! Cathy, una giovane studentessa di arte, che ama creare bijoux e li presenta nel suo blog “La prochaine fois” Tra i suoi lavori, troviamo accessori realizzati con la frutta secca, l’idea da cui sono nati è curiosa: Durante un viaggio in Francia, Cathy ha assaggiato la frutta  essiccata e in particolare ha molto apprezzato il kiwi. Ritornata a casa, ha cercato questo tipo di frutta nei negozi americani ma non ha trovato niente del genere. Ha deciso allora di acquistare un essiccatoio per realizzare da sè queste dolcezze. Prima di mangiarsele però, Cathy le fotografava e, osservando la bellezza di queste fettine di frutta, ha deciso di sperimentare qualcosa di nuovo. Nascono così anelli e collane prodotti con le mele “Granny Smith” oppure “a base” di fettine di pera o di patate dolci. (« irisjewelry.it »)

« The fruit has been sealed, with either lacquer or wax. I wanted to see if these would hold up better/longer than the raw ones. However, I’m not a fan because it changes the meaning of the pieces somewhat – being sealed, they stop being about the moment and instead go into the preservation. And wax = bad because it just flakes off. I’m still on the hunt for different ways to treat the surface!«

Jacqueline de JONG, NL‘pommes 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).

 project ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’, Ana Cardim

« How does nutrition, on a socio-economic level and in its’ most basic form, relate to the aesthetic values of today’s society? This question can only come from Ana Cardim, who has a passion to make interactive, sociable jewelry-art. This takes shape in her recent project “Aesthetic Nutrition”.
The project consists of a video, projected on a wall, three heaps of rice, chopsticks and three bowls containing one, two and three hand-made rice grains. Each grain is made from pure gold, weighs half a gram, and has the economic value of about 15 kilos of eatable dry rice. (How many grains would that be?) In total, the project exists of three grams of gold, enough for a beautiful gold ring, and 90 kilo’s of rice, which can provide a meal for 1800 people! In the video you’ll see a girl trying to eat it all… Everyone that visited ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’ was given a cup filled with delicious rice-pudding.
With her project ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’, Ana Cardim seeks attention for the idea of the difference in quantity, and levels of value, between the esthetic value of gold and the value given to the basic human need for food.
I am glad this project touches the subject of discrepancy in value and quantity from an aesthetic point of view. The rice-colored, ceramic bowls that contain the golden grains, are shaped like up-side-down rice heaps and make a good visual contrast with the actual heaps of rice. The chopsticks both separate and connect the two, underlining the visual link. The video shown on the wall, completes the display. The action of handing out cups of rice-pudding causes the viewer to connect to the exhibit. How can you resist thinking about the subject, when looking at the serene beauty of the whole set-up, whilst eating yummie pudding!
The launch of the ‘Aesthetic Nutrition’ project happened on the 6th of July, and was commissioned by Bypass, an art magazine that invites artists to write about their work. The second magazine is due to be released in October 2010 and will contain an extensive article by Ana Cardim.
‘Aesthetic Nutrition’ was held in Appleton Square, which is a multivalent space geared towards diverse artistic manifestations and towards the sharing of multidisciplinary experiences. It was the first time that they had work on display by a jewelry designer! » (Broes van Iterson)
