EXPO ‘I am an Other’ – Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv (IL) – 10 Juin-20 Nov. 2012

« I am an Other »

The sixth exhibit of Israeli jewelry deals with the perception of « the other self, » or the alter ego. Fifty-three artists participating in the exhibit set out on an inner journey, the process resulting in diverse expressions: virtuosic jewelry-makers who are usually meticulous in their work chose to free themselves of the constraints and make room for expression ; some used organic materials; some turned to figurative creation, thus giving the human form an expression of « the other self, » while other artists chose the abstract to convey biographical moments. Some preferred the multitude so as not to focus the idea of « the other self » on a single item, while others preferred simplification and catharsis. It appears that the majority of Israeli jewelry-makers do not wear the jewelry they create, and some wear no jewelry at all. For this exhibit they created jewelry for themselves.

Israeli Jewelry - Shenkar

« The selection of an abstract concept for this exhibition – Alter Ego (the Self as Other) — generated an extensive and riveting dialogue with participating artists. The process that resulted engendered layered and varied works that reflect the multi-faceted nature of this concept.  The underlying premise the artists were invited to consider was the notion that the ornamental artifact — an intimate object placed directly on the body — can represent parts of the Self, including its inverse or hidden elements.  The ornament also draws the gaze of others; the visual cues it offers subtly influence other forms of communication.
The roots of the term alter ego come from ancient Greek philosophy.  When Zeno of Cittium, founder of the Stoic school of Greek Philosophy, was asked, “what is a friend?” he responded: “allos ego,” that is, alter ego.  In a similar vein, Aristotle suggested that a friend should be treated like a second self.  Over time, the word ego came to mean “I” in Latin.  In the modern era, Sigmund Freud extended the word’s meaning when he defined it as a central element of the psyche.  The alter ego has been seen by psychology mainly as the inversion of the way the Self normally presents itself publicly.  But the notion remains vague and elusive.
The alter ego has many cultural expressions: in pop and rock music, where artists embody fictional figures through which they can present new and experimental musical content; in the world of Comics, where an everyday person turns into a superhero; in literature that deals with two sets of personalities within a single person, and more.  Philosophers discussed the alter ego in the context of reciprocal relations, and as part of the effort to understand the Self.  As it turns out, scientists have found that a “mirror neuron network” in the brain allows us to experience the Other’s gestures as though they were our own, so that observing others is an inseparable element of self-understanding.
After they were introduced to the varied cultural manifestations of the alter ego, the jewelry makers were invited to design a jewel that would reflect their own alter ego.  Some artists chose to shed the rigid discipline that characterizes their virtuoso work, and allowed chance to influence the artifact, suggesting an alter ego that is out of control; others chose a figurative image of a face or person meant to convey a miniaturized Self, or created prostheses and additions to the face, embodying aspects of the self that go unexpressed in daily life; several chose animals to convey the complex relation with the Other – an ally or a distant and threatening figure.  Others chose images suggesting motion, such as boats representing sailing from the exterior inwardly and vice versa.  Some artists worked with abstract forms generated from a clear, personal context, forms that permitted a different self to momentarily show through; others worked with round shapes that express the Yin Yang principle and with it the notion that we must harmonize the contradictory elements of the self.  Finally, several artists related to the written word or a writing implement as a way to represent either the Self or the alter ego.
It seems that the exhibition highlights the fact that jewel-craft – a realm of intricate detail – spans a great deal of conceptual space.  Jewelers contract entire worlds into physical artifacts measured in centimeters, but the variety of responses engendered in the vast arena surrounding a single idea is near infinite. » Nirith Nelson,  Curator

EXPO ‘Transit’ – Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (DE) – 15 mars-3 Juin 2012

TRANSIT – zeitgenössischer Schmuck aus Israel 
15. März bis 3. Juni 2012
Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim

EXPO 'Transit' - Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (DE) - 15 mars-3 Juin 2012 dans Allemagne (DE) 120316_NL_transit01

Die Ausstellung gibt einen Einblick in die Besonderheiten im israelischen Schmuckschaffen und die Unterschiedlichkeit zur mitteleuropäischen Schmuckszene. Es ist das erste Mal, dass eine solche Überblicksschau in Deutschland gezeigt wird. Dabei fällt auf, dass die politische Situation auch im Schmuckbereich ein vorrangiges Thema für viele Künstler ist. « Diese ‘Politisierung’ der Kunst ist in Israel deutlich stärker ausgeprägt als hierzulande », erläutert Kurator Jürgen Eickhoff. Bereits seit den frühen 1970er Jahren ist eine kontinuierliche Entwicklung zu beobachten, bei der jedoch die Protagonisten häufig wechseln: Es gibt kaum israelische Künstlerpersönlichkeiten im Schmuck, die über Jahrzehnte ihrem Ausdrucksmittel treu bleiben. Viele beschäftigen sich nur wenige Jahre mit Schmuck und wechseln dann in andere Disziplinen des künstlerischen Schaffens.

Die längjährige Tradition des zeitgenössischen Schmucks dokumentieren die drei Künstlerinnen der Lehrergeneration Bianca Eshel Gershuni, Vered Kaminski und Deganit Stern-Schocken. Ihr Schaffen ist weiterhin aktuell und hat einen wesentlichen Einfluss auf die junge Generation. Deren Auffassung von Schmuck und die Vielfalt der Positionen werden durch Arbeiten von 15 Absolventen deutlich. Insgesamt sind rund 200 Objekte von 18 Teilnehmern zu sehen. Kuratiert wird die Schau von Jürgen Eickhoff, der seit 1981 die Galerie Spektrum in München führt.

Klassiker der Schmuck 2012
Jens Rüdiger Lorenzen, Deutschland

This year there will be a retrospective exhibition of the work of a « Modern Classic » designer. In 2012 the chosen designer is the German goldsmith Jens Rüdiger Lorenzen. Together with Francesco Pavan, Lorenzen was the first goldsmith to be awarded the Herbert Hofmann Prize, back in 1973. The award presentation ceremony, which this year is being held on Saturday, 17 March 2012, is always one of the highlights at SCHMUCK. Lorenzen, who was born in 1942 in Hagen, Westphalia, taught at the « Staatliche Zeichenakadamie » in Hanau from 1974 to 1985, while also acting as a visiting lecturer at the « Hochschule für Gestaltung » in Pforzheim, at which college he then, in 1985, took up an appointment as a professor. He continued to teach there in the jewellery design department until retiring in 2008.

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. »
