Astonish HOLY ROCK

« Child of the elements.
You connect us to the past and our memories. You give us silence and peace. Hypnotized, we gaze at you when exploring your inner worlds. Born from time and the forces of nature you are everlasting and the matter of our making.
Every Rock is holy, indeed. From stones as silent observers, we make valuable experiences, we communicate through our making. Find the seven makers of ASTONISH for the third consecutive year at SCHMUCK, to pay hommage/tribute to ‘THE HOLY ROCK’ in you and me.
So let us celebrate together Gems and Jewels. »

« My main subject is about private space. In my pieces I create rooms, containers, boxes or little caves. These spaces can be filled with ones own personal feelings, perceptions and sensations. I see my work as containers protecting the innermost emotions of the viewer or wearer, that they use to confront a busy world. »

 » For people as well as for jewellery, everything begins with the skin – the surface, the countless surface possibility in jewellery pieces depending on the material and workmanship. We can try to look through the skin/surface and try to interpret with those pieces. On display are the latest works of 11 jewellery artists and 1 painter from Munich.  »
Every perception begins with the skin, the surface. For people as well as for jewellery. Here, in jewellery, there are countless surfaces – smooth or rough, monochrome or multicoloured, porous or impermeable, chaotic or orderly, depending on the material and workmanship. There are no limits to the diversity of haptic sensations. Likewise with the jewellery in the exhibition Die denkende Haut [The Thinking Skin]. Are we able to look through skin, though, through the surface, inwards, to the essence of the jewellery? Can we do it with people? Neither is a simple undertaking! But we can try to interpret, to read them.
For example, with Julia Obermaier, who cuts, polishes and assembles sculptural-architectural forms from agate, the stone that emerged from volcanic nodules over millions of years. The immortality of nature and the finiteness of man are brought together in an allegorical juxtaposition. Or with Carina Shoshtary, who takes graffiti, dissects it and recomposes it in her jewellery. Messages are thus preserved and interpreted anew. Freedom of thought is manifested in jewellery. The concrete necklaces by Samira Götz only appear to be heavy; they are, however, surprisingly light. They function as burden and liberation at once. The last example is Merlin Klein, whose ‘ash jewellery’ simultaneously stands for grief, solace and remembrance.
The works on display constitute not just surface, technique and workmanship; they are concepts, with a message for the beholder. They allow one to gaze deep into the essence of the individual, nature and the universe; this is jewellery and art, or art and jewellery, or only jewellery, or just art, wearable on the skin or an object in a vitrine, ultimately simply beautiful and an eternally exciting process when one allows the ‘skin to think’. / Dirk Allgaier, February 2018
« Thinking is not only an abstract act of intellectual reckoning, but also a kind of responsive intelligence permeating our bodies and navigating us through our daily entanglements on the physical, emotional and creative planes. In this sense, dance is an embodied reflection on space; and the mind of an angler is in the hand curled around the fishing rod. Similarly, the movement of fingers on the keyboard of a piano is a visible extension of the musical thinking within the body of a performer, and the same fingers on the keyboard of a computer reproduce the dictates of a cerebral algorithm.
Between anything that touches and anything that is touched – be it an inanimate object or a living body – is the skin, which not only sends out signals like lustre, youth and freshness fromwithin, but also absorbs impulses from without, to be analysed, interpreted and answered in due time. The skin is an interface, revealing an inside and effecting responses in the environment; or thinking an outside by opening up and responding to stimuli. And when it becomes a foundation and support for structures of metals, stones, pearls, etc., then it draws in the elements of the world into its own cycle of impression and expression, transforming them into jewellery and enabling the enhancement of an adorned body.
But, owing to its intermediary position between an inside and an outside, the skin is afflicted with the same mysterious hybridity that characterises all limits and thresholds. Is it still the body? Or is it already part of the environment? Is it still an organ covering all other organs, a spread of epidermis capable of being seen, touched, injured? Or is it already a material, formed to a shield, a mask, an ornament? Or is it neither the one nor the other, but simply an immaterial and intermediary space of difference?
Such questions cannot be quite avoided in the familiar “practices of appearance” like the fine and the applied arts. They are also at the root of the constellation of jewellery and painting that are being presented in this exhibition. »  / Thinking skin by Pravu Mazumdar

ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK (AJW) 2017 – general schedule – Athens (GR) – 18-21 May 2017

ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK 2017

AJW 2017 on Facebook

AJW 2017

Contemporary jewelry meets the Athenian audience in a 4-day art event with international participations.

For a second year in a row, Athens Jewelry Week opens its doors to welcome its guests. The objective of this new and dynamic institution is to present to the Greek audience the trends and the rich diversity of contemporary art jewelry, as they have been evolving in Greece and abroad.

In the framework of the international jewelry scene, the organization constitutes the Greek presence on the world map of equivalent art events with an ever increasing interest. AJW 2017 covers four days of exhibitions, lectures and workshops, highlighting contemporary jewelry creators, their art and their authentic work.

The central exhibition titled “Art + Jewelry: Intersecting Spaces is hosted this year by the Benaki Museum (Pireos Annexe) and it aims to present the exceptional work of 48 selected artists. The influential German jewelry maker Peter Bauhuis, invited as a guest artist, will honor the event with his presence, by exhibiting his work in the main exhibition hall and by opening the lectures program.

AJW 2017 also includes 5 group exhibitions that will take places in various venues around Athens, lectures and seminars. The closing of the event will be marked by the awards ceremony. Awards will be given by international institutions/entities that are active in the contemporary jewelry field.

Athens Jewelry Week – organized by Anticlastics, a group of contemporary jewelry creators – aims, among other things, at introducing the art of contemporary jewelry to the broader public. It is addressed to artists and art aficionados of all ages and backgrounds, but mostly to all those who love contemporary art jewelry and want to learn more about it. Because -as the poet W.B. Yeats would say- « The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper ».

Jewellery exhibitions are often presented in sterile glass cabinets. This leads to a distance between object and viewer and limits the freedom, which could develop in this sensual encounter.
Here, at the exhibition tog_ther !, curated by Gisbert Stach and Rose Stach, the motto is: chairs instead of showcases!
Twenty international author jewellery artists gather with their extraordinary objects in dialogue with strongly individualistic seats, from weight benches to a sandbag wall.
A potently interactive chair by Christoph Zellweger from Switzerland; a self-portrait stool by Arek Wolski from Warsaw; cheap pretense and reality from two female Budapest artists; and David Bielander Thonet chair sausage links, are among what’s to find.
Two female artists from Budapest play with cheap pretence and reality. Emese Benczúr forms the words “LET IT SHINE” on a rainbow-coloured surface using ear studs, while Réka Lörincz presents grooming gloves with enticingly glittering golden nails on a lavatory lid in her piece of art titled  Woman at Work. David Bielander, a native of Basel now living in Munich, even transforms the chair itself into a jewellery object by removing elements of the curved armrest of a Thonet chair and shaping them into sausage necklaces, explaining that the sausages had always been present in these chairs and he has now “set them free”!

EXPO ‘Side by Side’ – ECNP Gallery, Istanbul (Turkey) – 3-26 Mars 2016

Side by Side by Burcu Büyükünal and Selen Özus

Side by Side is an amalgam of two solo but parallel shows by Burcu and Selen, who have been sharing a mutual dream since 2007 and finally Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio since 2011. Side by Side, the result of a long working process, emerges as a response to the passion and the need to create. In that regard, it is the fruit of not only a spatial cooperation but is also a meeting of the hearts. After Hasbelkader, the first show Burcu and Selen put on “together” in 2012, this second exhibition.

Side by Side

 

 

Let It…,  Burcu Büyükünal
Let it exist, let it cease, let it come, let it go, let it stay, let it appear, let it conceal, let it decay, let it split, let them gather, let it unite, let it be remembered, let it be forgotten, let it out, let it in, let it get lost, let it be found, let it become ugly, let it turn beautiful…
Let it… is a work that began to appear in my mind when I lost myself in the details of Abel Mort sculpture by Emile Feugère des Fort in Musée d’Orsay. It emerges from these details and changes its direction under the influence of the natural and obligatory course of life. It is fiction but it is real.
 Biography:
Having graduated from Industrial Design Department of Istanbul Technical University in 2003, Burcu Büyükünal started to work at Ela Cindoruk and Nazan Pak’s jewellery studio. After receiving Fulbright Award she got her MFA in Metal at SUNY at New Paltz in 2009. She confounded Maden Contemporary Jewelry Studio in 2011 with Selen Özus. Currently, she teaches classes at Maden, İTÜ and Plato Higher College of Education.
  Artist Statement:
« Among my works, there are designed products along with functional and nonfunctional, artistic and arbitrary pieces that I cannot classify. Contemporary jewellery, which is my main field, comes and goes between these two related disciplines, stands closer to one of them time to time. I sometimes focus on a technique, a material or a visual data around me and create links among them while revealing my own point of view. I crave to ask uncommon questions and find alternative answers to them. Even though I enjoy sticking to my habits in the process of creation, I find theme shifts nourishing and exciting. I believe creating and making is a childlike addiction. That’s why my studio is my living room. »

The Closest, Selen Özus
My autoportrait works entitled “The closest” are the products of an interpretive process of visualizing myself which resulted in conflicts and clashes.The period started with shut-eye drawings: My white on white faces only to reveal themselves with a closer look, are chosen to define myself. Porcelaine works emerged as the variable reflections of transparent and delicate materials gone with the flow.
 Selen Özus Biography:
Selen Özus was born in 1983 in Istanbul, where she continues to live and work. She got her BFA in Ceramic and Glass Design in Mimar Sinan Fine Art University, followed by a three year Jewellery Program in Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence where she took classes from Peter Bauhuis, Manfred Bischoff and Ruudt Peters.  Her work has been exhibited locally and internationally. She teaches at the Maden Contemporary Jewellery Studio, she co-founded with Burcu Büyükünal.
  Artist Statement:
« It all starts with the valuable beauties and ugliness’ that surround us: People, being human, lights, spaces, relations, memories, nature and details.The sensations created by everybody and everything awaken a desire to produce.In fact, all shapens up while paying gently attention to the details. From then on my sole aim is to retreat to my secured world and to concretize what I see with my feelings… to reflect the combination of brain and heart. While producing, drawings become objects, objects become art jewellery. Once my strong feelings balanced, the rest passes to the piece. »

During SCHMUCK : EXPO ‘Unbearable Lightnesses’ – 84GHz, Munich (DE) – 26-28 Fevr. 2016

Unbearable Lightness

a solo show by Federica Sala

Alchimia is proud to say that “Unbearable Lightnesses” by recent graduate Federica Sala will be on view during the Schmuck Jewellery Week 2016, an exhibition featuring her Alchimia MFA collection “True Lies. A collection of Oxymorons”, together with new pieces realized for the occasion

 Opening 26.02 from 18:00 to 22:00

Unbearable Lightnesses

Imagine to wake up and to see everything different than what you knew. The appearance of the surroundings is exactly the same, but no more the feeling of it. Everything becomes suddenly worthless but meaningful, raising an awareness of a reality fragile and heavy at the same time. There’s a new and indefinable tension between certain and uncertain. It’s a thrill that brings you on the brink of a precipice over nothing and everything. Take your time to stay suspended in this pure and perfect balance. Keep as long as possible this vertigo feeling with you to magnify your experience of life. Welcome to the world of the Unbearable Lightnesses.

There’s a reality to discover, in which everything is possible and looks exactly the opposite of what we know. Our superficial perception is building a world of illusions in which appearance has become the only truth. I want to raise doubts, creating pieces that defy the laws of Reality and seem to belong to another possible world. All the uncertainties are turned into delicate jewellery pieces that once on the body draw the wearer’s attention, sharing their fragility with the reality we’re living. My pieces want to make people change their perspective, generating a much more gentle and sensitive perception of themselves and of the surroundings as a consequence. Federica Sala

True Lies. A Collection of Oxymorons wants to question our perception of reality, inspired by Plato’s thoughts on how “reality is just a defective projection of our limited way of perceiving”*. Strong in look but extremely fragile in essence, the jewellery pieces encourage us to reflect about the inextricable co-dependency of opposites, and of how our existence might be determined by the limits we set for ourselves. Glass and stone become one entity growing from each other via a new and experimental technique developed by the artist in years of research on the island of Murano, world-famous for its artisanal glass production.
True Lies are impossible structures that point us towards the fragility of the reality we know, by sharing with us just one of the possible variations of it.
Federica Sala is one of the significant figures of a rising generation of Italian jewellery artists. Her practice is based on a continuous experimentation on the properties and qualities of materials, with a particular interest in glass and organic forms, grounded in a strong theoretical research. With this new collection Federica Sala introduced a unique approach in combining different materials such as metal, glass and gemstones. One of its pieces was nominated for the prestigious Stanislav Libenský Award. (Alchimia blog)

Federica Sala (b. 1986 Italy, lives and works in Milan) holds an MFA in Contemporary Jewellery and Body Ornament from Alchimia in Florence (2015) tutored by the Mexican jewellery artist Jorge Manilla, and a MA in Fashion Design from the Politecnico in Milan (2011) tutored by the Italian anthropologist Eleonora Fiorani and the Italian artist Giorgio Vigna. While studying in Alchimia she was mentored by International artists as Peter Bauhuis and Ruudt Peters. Her work is deeply based on a scientific approach to materials that she manipulates to create new delicate jewellery sculptures that due to their fragility capture all the attention and sensibility of the wearer.  From 2010 to 2012 she has been the assistant of Giorgio Vigna with whom she kept on studying glass and its properties, travelling to Murano to learn new techniques.  Her recent Master Project “True Lies. A collection of Oxymorons” has been nominated for the Stanislav Libensky Award 2015 with an exhibition at the Glass Museum in Prague.

1 : 20.000. A solo show by Giulia Savino

 

Alchimia is pleased to present 1 : 20.000, a solo-show by Italian jewelry artist Giulia Savino. This marks the third in a series of solo exhibitions realized by the graduating students of Alchimia’s MFA program 2014/2015, each taking place in a different European city.

Where do we belong to? Can we say that a city belongs to us? If so, then we may have it, like an object, taking it with us wherever we go. We cross the world feeling our identity is in a constant change.
We often observe cities from above, at the height of the clouds, where everything turns into a grid of lines and geometric shapes, looking small and neat, making us believe that we can grab it all and hold it in one hand.
1: 20000 is the manifestation of that instant, that alluring moment in which something enormous is in our hands and we immerse ourselves in the temporary beauty of being in a place we think we own.
1: 20000 is a compendium of maps, a collection of cities in the form of jewels. Just like the map is not the territory but one of the many possible representations of space, each jewel is a personal interpretation of a city that adopts a shape in direct interaction with the body.
1: 20000 is a research on our own identity, complex as mazes of streets, in constant movement as travelers, precious and delicate as jewels.Giulia Savino
