De Meo Corrado

 

Sarà la stilista Agatha Ruiz De La Prada ad inaugurare a Parigi la personale di Corrado De Meo (venerdì 22 febbraio, dalle ore 18 alle 21), il designer del gioiello contemporaneo, presso la galleria-negozio della prestigiosa casa di moda internazionale, con la mostra “Les sonoritèes du la couleur” (Le Sonorità del Colore), fino al 15 marzo, in 9 rue de Guénégaud 75006 (quartiere di Saint Germain). E' la prima volta che un artista di gioielli italiano espone presso il negozio della famosa maison spagnola: un incontro, quello tra la stilista e il designer, suggellato dalla passione per la moda, i suoi volumi ed i colori.

L'esposizione di De Meo presenta 30 gioielli-scultura, pezzi unici non riproducibili disegnati e realizzati dal designer appositamente per la mostra, alcuni dei quali impreziositi da trame di tessuto, in una trait d' union ideale tra il lavoro del designer di gioielli e la stilista di moda. La mostra dedicata al colore e alle sue vibrazioni è un vero e proprio omaggio alla stilista che da sempre utilizza i cromatismi per caratterizzare le proprie collezioni. In occasione della mostra il designer ha inoltre ideato e creato tre istallazioni, tre “maxi – Brooches” che riproducono nel dettaglio tre delle spille in esposizione.

De Meo, che vive e lavora a Livorno, dal 2007 è presente con due pezzi - un bracciale ed una collana – nella collezione permanente del Museo degli Argenti di Palazzo Pitti a Firenze, nella sezione dedicata al gioiello contemporaneo. I suoi gioielli, creati con materiali che spaziano dall'oro all'argento - rifiniti da sofisticate tecniche di ossidatura, fino ad approdare a sofisticate strutture di carta dipinta - colpiscono per le loro dimensioni scultoree e sono famosi per spiazzare il fruitore grazie alla loro inaspettata leggerezza.

Volutamente provocatorie, le opere dell'artista, spiccano per un'attenzione particolare verso i volumi che fanno pensare ad oggetti estremamente pesanti, idea che si dissolve non appena vengono indossati rivelandone l'inaspettata leggerezza, resa possibile grazie alla tecnica usata dal designer e di cui è pioniere in Italia.

“I vestiti di Agatha ed i miei gioielli – ha spiegato il designer italiano – hanno la medesima intensità “vitale”. Agatha si esprime attraverso l'uso armonico di tessuti dai colori accesi, mentre io lavoro sul dialogo tra colore e forma, armonizzando il passaggio tra l emozione visiva evocata dal colore e le sue vibrazioni, fino ad arrivare alla sua concretizzazione nella 'forma – gioiello' finale”.

PARTNER
Cologni's Foundation for the Arts and Artistic Craftsmanship is a non-profit private institution born in Milan in 1995 thanks to the will of Franco Cologni, who is its President.

Its initiatives, all orientated to the defence and the promotion of the arts and artistic craftsmanship, are turned to young people: train new generations of craftsmen, preserving the artistic craftsmanship from their disappearance. In addition there are numerous activities turned to encourage young people to undertake some contemporary craftsmanship (as the photographer, the designer, the copywriter… ) that offer job opportunities.

En quelques décennies, les bijoux se sont complètement transformés, suivant les évolutions dumonde de l'art. Ils ont bouleversé les codes et les usages, se sont déplacés sur les têtes et les corps. La modestie des matériaux utilisés – les métaux rouillés pour Philip Sajet, le titane pour Fabrice Schaefer ou encore le chocolat pour Naomi Filmer – contraste avec la somptuosité des pièces proposées. Ce documentaire s'intéresse aux bijoux contemporains les plus surprenants à travers une école de créateurs d'avant-garde, la Haute école d'art et de design de Genève (HEAD), et explore, en compagnie de l'historienne de l'art Elizabeth Fischer, cette révolution du bijou.

Il Gioiello Contemporaneo: cronaca di una morte annunciata? MAKE IT POP!

"Contemporary jewellery is dead", writes Ted Noten in the incipit of his Manifesto on the contemporary jewellery, and he offers a message of paradoxical negative sense which leads us to seriously reflect. In its brevity it is, in fact, a reflection of an alarming trend. The jewel of classical memory had already turned for decades into "something" else: a reactionary onrush, an existential philosophy, a symbol, a challenge.
During the process of emancipation, however, some elements in the flow of creative inspiration are shipwrecked and washed up on the beach of mere eidetic investigation. According to the Dutch designer, who loves to surprise to solicit minds, the flat electrocardiogram of recent productions makes its best impression on the walls of art galleries, put under glass and hung like a dead, expressionless body.
Ted Noten, moreover, is known for his brazen, provocative pieces and not always easy to fit. Its extreme assertion, therefore, is nothing more than the latest proof of arguing to desecrate deliberately?
Partly yes. Partly not.
"Contemporary jewellery is autistic," reiterates in the same essay.
Is the contemporary jewellery really autistic? In the sense of self referential, perhaps?
The jewel, become by this time the result of repeated, introspective retreats, celebrate itself, settle itself, elect itself, Masonicly acclaimed by those few followers who intend and share the same hypercryptical code.
Without wishing to paraphrase the entire Manifesto, it strikes the eye that the exasperated self-isolation of contemporary jewellery and what surrounds it, declares aloud its disappearance.
This is for sure a borderline position, which casts such a clear light on the sad panorama of new jewellery.
However, can we declare art deceased?
From the moment its authors get by - famous, half famous or unknown - the basic axiom predisposes us to decree art existence. Well, the contemporary jewellery is not dead! It's just curled up in an exclusive market hiding to the large public.
In the last year I have dabbled in books, articles, sacred texts, less sacred texts, exhibitions, fairs, goldsmiths, sculptors, connoisseur, critics, pseudocritics, collectors, conscious of having approached and explored only a tiny part of a gigantic, huge iceberg top. It is certain that on the contemporary jewellery rivers of ink have not been exactly spilled, and is equally obvious that there is a big lack of literature given to it. Ted Noten bluntly explicits the continuous decrease in the playfull and intrinsic value of the jewel.
He rocks the boat, causing a fervent dialogue. And that along with some other enlightened specialists such as Liesbeth den Besten and our very active Alba Cappellieri. The sore point of the matter is that in an effort to highlight something valuable, we tend to ghettoize, to make delicious food for just a few palates. The added value of art lies in its disclosure. Art needs an attractive patina that makes it desirable by all. The road to get there is the enlarged information on specific training assumptions.
This is what Alba Cappellieri is building in Italy: a network of contacts among the various representatives to define the action scenario. She has created the conditions for a successful innovation through her studies and an intercommunication project that ranging from crafts to the great chain of industrial design, touching upon fashion, costume, history. The newly formed Jewellery Museum of Vicenza is the proof!
The Italian contemporary jewellery has a long tradition, complex, fascinating and has created both artistic and industrial production entities. Its roots, therefore, are more complex than that of Northern Europe where production is the prerogative only of the individual author. The terms of the equation, however, even if moved, do not change: the great designer Gijs Bakker has never made any secret of how he were disappointed by the elitist allure that a certain type of contemporary jewellery was taking. He has always proposed, in fact, the encounter with the wide-spreading public both in comprehensive and economical terms.
Let's proceed with order.
We, with a bird's eye view from north to south, pass through different approaches and visions.
Northern Europe has a relatively young and vibrant tradition in which the art jewellery is the strong response to the Italian one founded on a rich and multifaceted knowledge acquired in a tormented sequences of changes.
Liesbeth den Besten, classifying the status quo of contemporary jewellery in six types, helps us to get in touch with a world in which, however, definitions cause doubts and uncertainty, but are illuminating to discover that under our eyes unfolds a universe not completely explored.

Contemporary jewellery, Studio jewellery, Art jewellery, Research jewellery, Jewellery design e Author jewellery could be the answer to frequently asked questions that many goldsmiths make desperately trying to find their correct position in a creativity market so difficult to read. Liesbeth den Besten also noted, that in the last fifty years the jewel has become a very personal artistic practice linked to research, closer to photography, installations, video art and performance, despite not having to share with them the same freedom of expression. The visual arts denounce mostly rotten corruption of the world with messages of horror, disgust and aversion. The jewel unlike, in its true language, should keep at least part of its primordial nature as ornament. It should not undress completely. Yet the crazy intuition of someone escapes, anyway, from the typical pigeonholing of analytical minds and offers us a vision of the jewel that with the jewel itself has not much to do except for the noble materials with which it is built. This is the case, I think, of the psyconeuroprovocative works of Lauren Kalman, the finalist at the Art Jewellery Forum Artist Award.

The works of Elisabetta Duprè evoke a rhythm comparable to the changing of seasons, day and night, a beating heart, a piece of music. Dozens, even hundreds of tiny pieces of silver and gold, small cubes, cups, flat bars, occur in a sequence, as if they were marking time, almost suggesting the ticking of a clock or the swinging of a metronome.

Her work is essentially based on minute detail. Surfaces are carefully treated to acquire the desired texture and colour. The pieces are perfect in their imperfection and apparent randomness becomes fundamental. Their manual techniques are very clear and ooze from every pore: irregular edges, round shaped elements that are not quite round and squares that are not perfectly square.

LAO – LE ARTI ORAFE JEWELLERY SCHOOL in Florence, is organizing an intensive 7-day event devoted to the jewellery world and the complex relationships between artistic research, crafts and design.
The event also aims to focus on the cultural aspects of identity/diversity, which is one of the main topics of the debate in recent years.

Connecting worlds / Artistic research, handicrafts, design, new technologies.
Artistic research, design and quality craftsmanship are closely-linked aspects, sometimes difficult to distinguish. One without the others would not make sense, and each one has its roots in the others.
In recent decades these aspects have been artificially and forcibly set in opposition to each other, but nowadays this trend is changing, to the benefit of mutual attention and integration.

Artistic research has made tremendous progress over the past 40 years, especially in Europe, while in this part of the world quality craftsmanship seemed to be back in a "runner-up" position, and design has been mainly linked to industrial production. The jewellery designer, understood as a person who invents, manufactures and markets his/her products, found significant space in a few countries, such as Germany and the UK, while remaining marginal in Italy.

In recent years, many young people have returned to manual and creative activities (by natural choice or due to unfavorable economic conditions, and supported by new technologies), rediscovering the value of traditional knowledge and skills, until recently considered "outdated" and therefore not very interesting.

An important role in this “return to crafts” is played by new technologies (especially the CAD world), the widespread use of alternative materials, and the ability to combine different skills in the creation of objects to wear ..... the jewel finally seems released from its "dusty" concept and creating jewellery becomes a very palatable field of experimentation.

In different geographical areas, such as Africa and India, craft activity is still a very important aspect of social life. The artifacts are related to family and clan rituals, to social status, to religious and secular celebrations, and materials, as well as work processes, have remained unchanged.

These aspects are a rich heritage, not only to the society in which they have developed, but for all mankind.

The project aims to contribute to the reconciliation of these aspects by presenting the work of some artists (from Europe, China, Russia), some designers and some master craftsmen from Italy, Africa and India.

Schools and academies have an important role in spreading the culture related to artistic research, design, and the transmission of craft traditions and skills.

The FJW project also includes a tribute to the city of Florence, which can boast a glorious past for its "botteghe" and of course for the incomparable glories of its artists, but lives in a present that has slowly depleted this content. A few excellences still survive in the town, and in recent times show signs of revival thanks to some young people who are courageously rediscovering quality craftsmanship.



VENUES
