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”.

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.

Gioielleria contemporanea. Omaggio a Donatello

Inaugurazione e proclamazione opera vincitrice: venerdì 8 maggio 2015 alle ore 18.30
Ideazione e cura della Mostra: Mirella Cisotto Nalon

In occasione delle mostre realizzate per celebrare lo scultore toscano Donatello, giunto nella città di Padova a metà del quattrocento, l'Assessorato Cultura e Turismo del Comune di Padova organizza e presenta la seconda edizione del Premio Internazionale Mario Pinton – II edizione. Gioielleria Contemporanea - Omaggio a Donatello, una mostra/concorso di gioielleria contemporanea di ricerca che sarà allestita presso l'Oratorio di San Rocco dal 9 maggio al 26 luglio 2015.
Da circa vent'anni Padova dedica alla gioielleria contemporanea d'arte e di ricerca un'attenzione tutta particolare rendendo omaggio a una peculiare tradizione padovana, nata in città con la Sezione dei Metalli, fondata da Mario Pinton, presso la Scuola d'Arte Pietro Selvatico negli anni cinquanta e internazionalmente identificata come Scuola Orafa Padovana.
Nel 2011, per rendere omaggio a Mario Pinton, scomparso nel 2008 e alla Scuola Orafa Padovana, il Comune di Padova ha istituito un concorso internazionale, collegandolo, in quella prima edizione, al contesto di un rinnovato interesse per l'epoca trecentesca, culminato nella grande esposizione di Guariento e la Padova carrarese. Nel 2011 l'artista padovano Graziano Visintin si aggiudicò la prima edizione del Premio Internazionale Mario Pinton - Prima edizione. Castelli, miniature, astri e alchimia. La Padova Carrarese nel gioiello contemporaneo. ed ebbe l'onore di vedere la sua spilla inserita nelle collezioni di Arte Contemporanea dei Musei Civici; al secondo e terzo posto furono segnalate le opere di Antjie Brauer e di Bettina Speckner.

Quest'anno viene realizzata la seconda edizione dell'iniziativa, che sarà collegata alla figura di Donatello, celebrata in altre tre mostre che si svolgeranno tra marzo e luglio 2015 al Museo Diocesano e ai Musei Civici di Padova.
La mostra/concorso si propone un compito ardito: condurre il pubblico, il più vasto possibile, al gioiello d'artista e cercherà di evidenziare come il linguaggio contemporaneo dei diversi artisti saprà interpretare la maniera donatelliana e le importanti novità che il grande artista scultore seppe apportare all'arte del suo tempo. Una giuria, appositamente nominata, designerà alla fine il vincitore.
Saranno 66 gli artisti presenti, provenienti da tutto il mondo, 2 fuori concorso, che si confronteranno con la lezione del Maestro fiorentino, documentato in città fin dal 1444.
Tra gli artisti più importanti si ricordano: dalla Spagna Capdevila Joaquim e Ramon Puig Cuyàs - Direttore del dipartimento di gioielleria della Scuola di oreficeria Massana di Barcellona; dalla Germania Christiane Foerster e Rudollf Kocea; dall'Austria Helfried Kodrè; dalla Francia l'orafa Cathy Chotard; dal Regno Unito Jaqueline Mina; dall'Olanda Annelies Planteydt; dall'Estonia Kadri Maelk - Direttore della Sezione di Oreficeria della Scuola orafa di Tallin.
Accanto a nomi prestigiosi provenineti da tutto il mondo ci saranno italiani come Francesco Pavan, uno dei maestri della Scuola orafa Padovana, Graziano Visintin e molti altri importanti orafi vincitori di numerosi premi internazionali.

Dal 19 maggio, alla Galleria Subert, in Via della Spiga 42, Milano c'è la mostra "Le Tavole Sospese", una miscela di antiquariato, arte e design, che mette al centro la la tavola, come omaggio all'avviato semestre di Expo Milano.

Due tavole apparecchiate, sospese al soffitto, che mettono in mostra, fino al 16 luglio, i gioielli e le nuove posate Paper di Francesca Mo, un'importante collezione di maioliche del '700 lombardo, i vasi di Samuele Bonomi e gli argenti di Thalia Maria Georgoulis.

Le protagoniste assolute, però, sono proprio le posate 'Paper', disegnate da Francesca Mo, architetto e designer milanese, che da anni è nella gioielleria d'autore con successo. In queste sue nuove creazioni ad essere assaporato non è il cibo ma il minimalismo estetico e materico dell'acciaio inox satinato nel design di forchetta, coltello, cucchiaio e cucchiaino, oltre alle posate da portata e i portatovaglioli.

Questa collezione, dal sapore 'primitivo', si caratterizza per la semplicità delle forme proposte e la loro raffinata delicatezza. Ricavate da sottili lastre di rame, ondulate e lavorate a mano con trame a righine o piccoli quadrati, i porta candela e i porta bottiglie, a base tonda che poggia in tavola, ma con petali a sbuffo come le pieghe di un tessuto.

As Oscar Wilde said, you have to get into the "depth of the surface." And it is through the reflection of the "depth of the surface" that Corrado De meo invites the viewer to look through the "visible", to arrive at the ''invisible“ finding out that in his work, in the dialectical relationship between form, material and content, there is no immediate identity report. The form of the work needs its content to be narrated, and its content needs a form to manifest itself in its contradiction. That is why, He uses shapes and “important” volumes that appropriate themselves of the space to express, in contradiction between volume and weight, the "lightness" which is the protagonist of his work.

“DIALOGHI” 対話 ITALY – JAPAN

Curated: AGC Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo Italy
JJDA Japan Jewellery Designers Association

This project began to develop in December 2012, in Tokyo, during the meeting of the two Chairmen of AGC E JJDA who, by mutual agreement, decided to initiate the enterprise in 2015, the year that marks the 50th anniversary of JJDA and the 10th anniversary since the foundation of AGC.

So "Dialogues" among the members of the two associations began with each artist sending his counterpart an image related to the artistic culture of his/her own country, as inspiration material for the creation of a piece of jewellery, establishing that, at the end of the exhibition, the participants would donate the piece to the Japanese/Italian colleague and vice-versa.

The exhibition at the Institute of Culture in Tokyo, from 3rd to 11th July 2015, was made possible thanks to the cooperation of many friends and members of the two associations, and above all, to the hospitality of the Director of the Italian Cultural Institute, Mr. Giorgio Amitrano.

Opening ceremony, Friday 3 July, from 4pmto 6pm
On Saturday 11th July, the exhibition ends at 4pm

The exhibition will take place in:

SOLO EXHIBITION
Yoko Takirai was born in 1971. Since the early nineties she has been in charge of design at the studio of Yuzo Yamashita in Tokyo. She later attained a degree in History of Art and Foreign Languages at West Virginia University in the USA, and worked at the Museum of Japanese Literature in Tokyo.
In 1995 she moved to Florence to study at the jewellery school “Le Arti Orafe”, where she obtained a diploma in goldsmith's art and jewellery design, stone setting and engraving. This was followed by a diploma in project jewellery design from the Istituto d'Arte di Firenze. Between 1998 and 2000 Yoko taught goldsmith's art at the “Alchimia” school, shortly afterwards becoming assistant to Giampaolo Babetto. Another important artistic collaboration took place in 1998 with Pietro Pellitteri.
In 2002, Yoko founded Takirai Design in Florence, a company specializing in contemporary jewellery designs. Today, Yoko creates from a studio-workshop space located at the “Spazio Arti de Mestieri”, also where the Fondazione di Firenze per l'Artigianato Artistico is based.
Her collections have been exhibited at numerous shows both in Italy and abroad. In 2007 her creations contributed to the collection exhibited at the Museo degli Argenti di Palazzo Pitti in Florence. Her works are also on show at the Museo Internationale delle Arti Applicate Oggi in Torino and at Design Centrum Kielce in Poland.

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.

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.
