« What about the pearls and their necklaces? From symbol of wealth and opulence to symbol of sobriety, from fantastic jewelery, sensual and transgressive to model of bourgeois modesty, the pearls surround us in multiple scenarios and multiple senses.
Beside the quiet collar of the grandmothers, we have Louise Brooks’s or Emmanuelle’s, alongside the puritanical collar of the typical North American executive (the only permissible jewel in the almost masculine uniform), we have the excessive adornments of the rajas of India, not to mention the earring of the girl from Vermeer, or from a corsair turned into a virginal little girl’s earring.
The pearl is born, like Venus, from a shell, but we do not recognize in it the same erotic and libertarian appeal. The pearl was domesticated. It is today a symbol of purity, chastity and restraint and, let’s face it, boring!
Can contemporary jewelery claim as its own the “stone” wich seems so classic and conservative today? «  Marta Costa Reis, 2017  for Galeria Reverso

«  SMACK brings us together as a group in many ways. Not only with the first letters of our names but also a common idea to describe an activity, a sound for hitting the right thing. The words diversity– connection to yummy food, big heart-breaking kisses, drugs and punishment – is intriguing. In our case, we use it for things that are necessary ingredients for our work, as interesting ideas, unexpected materials, supportive colleagues, energy giving snacks, excellent tools, the right equipment and much more. »

EXPO ‘PIN 10 ANOS’ – Galeria de Arte Moderna Fernando Azevedo, Lisbon (PT) – 10 Sept.-3 Oct. 2014

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,PIN (PT),Portugal (PT) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:31

PIN – PORTUGUESE ASSOCIATION FOR CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY celebrates its first decade in 2014 by organizing the exhibition “PIN 10 ANOS – PIN 10 YEARS« .

The exhibition shall be open to the public from September 10th to October 3rd, 2014, at “Galeria de Arte Moderna Fernando Azevedo, Sociedade Nacional de Belas Artes”, in Lisbon.
The official opening shall take place on September 9th, 2014, at 6 pm
with the presence of the curator Marie-José van den Hout.
The exhibition aims to give a perspective on the work developed between 2004 and 2014 by artists who became PIN members and who applied for this project.

PIN 10 años

The exhibition is made up of two sections:
- A selection of approximately 90 artworks chosen by the curator Marie-José van den Hout from approximately 500 works sent by artists and schools that submitted their application to the project.
- Seventeen portraits of people – that during the last decade have been supporting PIN – wearing one of the artworks exhibited. Each portrait expresses the vision of the photographers invited to participate in the project on the subject portrayed and the jewellery piece chosen.
By means of these pictures, a dialogue between three subjects was created – portrayed subject, photographer and jewel – together with a context for each artwork focussing on the body.

The design of the exhibition is by Fernando Brízio.

EXPO ’40 Jewels (40 Joias)’ – Galeria Tereza Seabra, Lisbon (Portugal) – 29 Oct.-19 Nov. 2013

40 Jewels (40 Joias) -     Galeria Tereza Seabra (Lisbon, Portugal)

“40 Jewels” celebrates the 40th anniversary of Ar.Co – Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, Lisbon, Portugal, and the 35th anniversary of its Jewellery department. Founded in 1978 by Tereza Seabra, Ar.Co’s Jewellery department became her responsability for 25 years, until it was passed on to Cristina Filipe in 2004. This was the first (and is still the only) contemporary jewellery program fully integrated into an art school in Portugal. National and international collaborations with artists,  jewellers, public and private schools and other entities were and have remained a crucial part of the Jewellery department’s identity. “40 Jewels” will present selected works by 40 ex-students who have completed Ar.Co’s Studies Plan between 1978 and 2013.

EXPO ‘Dark And Sweet’ – Galeria Articula, Lisboa, Portugal – 17 Juin-30 Juill. 2011

« Dark And Sweet »

You are warmly welcome to the opening of the contemporary jewellery exhibition  » DARK AND SWEET  » with the artists Elo Uibokand and Tiina Rajakallio, at the Gallery ARTICULA, Friday,
17 June , from 6 pm till 9 pm. The exhibition runs till 30 July.

EXPO 'Dark And Sweet' - Galeria Articula, Lisboa, Portugal - 17 Juin-30 Juill. 2011 dans Elo UIBOKAND (EE) 250188_1925331187230_1660671088_1911164_55039_n

 

Elo Uibokand is talented contemporary jewellery artist originally from Estonia. She studied jewellery and stone object design in Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, Lappeenranta, Finland and graduated 2009. Tiina Rajakallio is a Finnish emerging jewellery artist. She got her master’s at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008. They both are living and working in Lappeenranta, Finland. “Dark and Sweet” is their first collaboration together.
The dark side is often related to negative aspects of life. In this exhibition the darkness is necessary; it will highlight the light and sweet characteristics of our being. There are always two sides in every thing, together they’ll form a space where both is equally important and constantly in move, equally dependant on each other, so the harmony will be created.

Elo Uibokand has been exploring the theme by emphasizing the possibility for the encounter, femininity and tenderness in the subject by the brownish natural shades of copper and the oval-like shapes, referring to a human/woman. The cat has been obviously used as a symbol for the theme. Cats may be sweet and soft and purring…and at the next moment will bite your caressing hand. So there are oval shapes, smooth and easy to touch and handle and there are cats meticulously sawn out of the metal with sharp edges, as sharp as the bite of the cat. The cat images have been scratched to the surfaces of the metal, the drawings are subtle, even intimate – one has to come closer in order to see and recognize. Here, unlike in printmaking, the plate itself is the subject together with the earrings and necklaces sometimes sawn out from the same plate.

Tiina Rajakallio’s works are about forgetting as a part of remembering. Things get frighteningly lost and changed in our minds, there are empty spaces, black holes; moments we have no image about anymore. Rajakallio has been focusing on the aspect of catching the lost memory, using forms suggesting the handles, the vessels – abstract and concrete at the same time. The materials (mostly wood) have been treated in a different manner. Rough natural surfaces of the branches, slip surfaces carved and painted… You’ll be able to reach your memory… or it will slip away from your hands. The colour palette is delicately natural; except the deep dark ultramarine blue associated with the subconsciousness, the unknown and far away. There are necklaces and brooches to be found in Rajakallio’s series, somehow familiar and strange.

EXPO ‘I Care A Lot – Opening’ – Gallery Platina, Stockholm (Sweden) – 2 Sept.-2 Oct. 2010

A Portable Discussion about current issues in the Middle East.
42 juried jewellery artists from 22 countries showing work on the conflict

 Why jewelry?
« Jewelry is an intimate art medium within the private and the public space which offers a personal relationship and an encounter between the wearer ,the viewer audience and the actual jewelry. It is an invitation to start a conversation and it can make a meeting possible. The body is a portable show case and the wearer chooses what and how to exhibit on him/her. Jewelry express the wearer character and sense of humor, it acts as an extension to the wearer personality, indicating his/her group of belonging, it is asking questions or claiming its opinion about the reality in which we live in, about our society, our surrounding and ourselves« 

The project aim is to raise discussion about current issues in the Middle East through an international art exhibition in which jewellery is the chosen media.
42 pieces of artists from 22 countries were selected independently by five international jury members – experts in their fields of studies and practice: Dr. Otto von Busch (Sweden) – Fashion Activist, Love Jonsson (Sweden) – Craft Critic, Prof’ Vered Kaminski (Israel) – Jewellery Artist, Shari Pierce (USA, Germany) – Jewellery Artist, Dr. Nada Shabout (USA,Qatar) – Art Historian

Cause We Care.
The region’s history and present are seeded with continuous violent national, ethnic and other conflicts. In many aspects the Middle East is considered to be one of the most sensitive and unstable regions in the world; strategically, economically, politically, culturally and religiously. It is located in the center of the international politics agenda. Its historical role, its huge reserves of crud oil and its significance for the three largest monotheist religions are usually taken as reasons for the world’s ardent interest in the region. But the attitude towards the Middle East has pasted the point of a keen interest in world affairs. By now it seems clear that the Middle East is perceived, especially by consumers of Western media, as the place where world dramas converge, or – more accurately – collide. It is almost the opposite of the Bermuda Triangle: everything that happens there pops up on our radars.
What is the Middle East? What is the source of our attraction to it? Is it just that it happens to be the most eventful place on earth? What is the nature of our commitment to effecting the future of the region? Do we really care about what goes on there? Do we really care about what goes on anywhere that is elsewhere? Do we care about the Middle East in a way similar to the way we care about how people look at us? Do we care about it the way we care about what people see in us?

Claire Baloge (FR) -  Camel dung, gold leaf, silk (collier en crottes de chameau … j’adore !!)

« I have chosen to use camel dung, because  it’s shape and color. Although the use of camel dung in jewelry may provoke it also links: in those (not so) far-away countries, many people are still using these animals, and their excrement, in daily life, while some others, a few miles away , are smoking the cigars of the oil business. I have chosen to use gold because gold is the referential measurement on which the whole world economy is founded. It remains a major symbol for jewelry, almost everywhere around the world. While camels are traditionally emblems of the noble class, in the nomad society, a clear mark of wealth and importance. It seems to be two different temporalities, which are still sharing the same space, coexisting in the same territories. »
