What is the possible connection between Nature and Contemporary Jewelry?

In nature, everything is constantly changing. If we consider the mutual relationships among living things, artistic expression becomes one of the fundamental ways in which human beings discover the ties with their own genre and with nature itself.

The underground energy flowing through the veins of nature, always aiming at reproducing herself, but also devoted to constant transformation, can be likened to the energy of human creativity, always seeking new ways, new languages and emotions that can be crystallized into objects and shapes, the deep meaning of which emerges once they these are introduced into the heart of everyday life. The value of these objects can be understood from what the Japanese call Kechi-en, that is their bond with the surrounding "space". With our works, we want to demonstrate the existence of such a space where objects can react and interact outlining the extent of autonomy that separates them from the banality and repetitiveness of the regenerative energy of change.

Corrado De Meo


In order to emphasize the strong exists between fashion and contemporary jewelry, the temporary exhibition halls, will represent the collaboration with one of the sponsors, Milchstrasse boutique, which will display women's and men's clothes together with jewelry.

A projection of the Métissages edited by Nichka Marobin on the basis of a selection of works in the exhibition, will take place. The Métissages are artistic forms which explore the color-formal and conceptual association between jewelry and haute couture. They show how the restless life of the forms is manifested through different creative paths, but with the same aesthetic result.
It will also feature the sculptress Clara Porta.
The Garden Club of Livorno will provide for flower decorations

A buffet will be offered inside the amphitheater of Villa Henderson, headquarters of the Museum.

As curator and editor of the catalogue, AGC will offer a copy to each artist who will attend the opening.
Those who will not be able to attend, will receive the catalog at the end of event.

Mo+Mo
disegni e sculture di Carlo Mo gioielli della figlia Francesca

Venerdì 27 maggio alle ore 17,00, presso il Salone Teresiano della Biblioteca di Pavia, sarà inaugurata la mostra MO+MO, scultura e design a cura di Antonella Campagna e Paola Mo.
Saranno esposti quaranta disegni e studi più una serie di piccole sculture e bozzetti dello scultore Carlo Mo, insieme a una ventina di gioielli d'arte della nota designer Francesca Mo. La mostra resterà aperta fino al 4 di giugno. Orari: da lunedì a venerdì 8.30-18.30 /sabato 8.30-13.30 ingresso libero.

MO + MO è l'antica “arte di bottega” rinascimentale. Esiste uno stretto anzi strettissimo legame tra scultura, pittura e design da sempre. Spesso s'intersecano, anzi, un tempo, il confine era per nulla segnato. Ed è proprio seguendo questo filo che è nata questa mostra. Padre e figlio collaboravano, ognuno nei propri campi, alla realizzazione di oggetto nel tempo della bottega e non della loro vita. Dunque una mostra antica in uno dei luoghi d'incanto d'Italia: il Salone Teresiano custodito, come incastonato, tra le mura di una delle più antiche e prestigiose università.

È una mostra caleidoscopica dove il probabile diviene improbabile e il suo contrario. Microfusioni in acciaio delle grandi sculture di Mo in giro per il mondo vicino a orecchini fatti sabbia già esposti al Poldi Pezzoli. Disegni su carta fatta a mano accanto a pietre riparate con lamine d'oro e omini che vi si arrampicano. Piccolissimi libri che divengono gioielli e cavatappi che sono bozzetti di sculture. Un anello che ti dice “yes or no” e un San Giorgio che uccide il Drago e insieme si trasformano. Un Luna Park dell'arte giocato sul filo dell'equilibrio della forma e della poesia. E, perché no, un dialogo silenzioso tra un padre e una figlia.

A presentare la mostra: Mino Milani, l'architetto Filippo Tartaglia e il gallerista Michele Subert.

Opens on Thursday, October 26, 7 p.m.
Pretty on Pink — Éminences Grises in Jewellery
Grey is conspicuously unobtrusive. Different mindsets are manifested in this

colour spectrum: refined understatement in diamond jewellery, or dispassio-
nate sobriety and rationality in Art Deco jewellery or in pieces designed in

the tradition of the Bauhaus. Like no other colour, grey represents the mo-
dern era, whose most characteristic materials, i.e. concrete and steel, are

also grey. In particular contemporary jewellery artists have meanwhile tur-
ned their attention to this colour spectrum, which is in stark contrast to

pink. With its vibrant chromatic depth, the latter immediately demands our
attention. In the hue of Tyrian purple, it once demonstrated both secular
and ecclesiastical power, and in contemporary fashion, pink has even been
used intentionally to shock. Effectively contrasting the jewellery creations
on display, this colour will be highlighting them quite »indiscreetly«.

Di Giancarlo Montebello gli “anelli OVER” in collaborazione con Matteo Bonafede
Cette exposition se voulait un hommage aux combattants de la Grande Guerre, mais au fil de sa construction elle s'est ouverte à de multiples autres dimensions. Défi s'il en est, il s'agissait d'inviter des créateurs contemporains à réfléchir sur la place et le rôle du bijou dans la Grande Guerre, puis de mettre en miroir leurs propositions et les pratiques d'artisanat de tranchée.

Les créateurs qui ont proposé des pièces sont une vingtaine, ils viennent de Belgique, d'Allemagne mais aussi de Roumanie, d'Arménie ou encore d'Israël… et tous se sont sentis particulièrement bouleversés par le thème. Certains avaient déjà un travail qui trouvait sa pleine expression dans le sujet proposé, d'autres ont créé spécialement. A leur côté, des collectionneurs passionnés qui nous font la grâce d'offrir en partage des objets anciens lentement collectés… Et alors agit la magie de la rencontre !

Vous pourrez ainsi découvrir : Reinhard Hampel/ Véronique Cartier-Hampel (Allemagne), Artak Tadevosyan (Arménie), Jurgen Herman, Marie Lechat, Siegfried De Buck et Nadine Sizaire/Viviane Bechoux (Belgique), Leslie Baron, Sundara Dufour, Jean Gazdac, Géraldine Jannot, Hélène Jeandot, Claire Kientzi, Marie-Josée Morato et Catherine Sumatra (France), GianCarlo Montebello et Tommaso Tosiani (Italie), Sara Shahak (Israël) et Andreia Popescu (Roumanie).

Le Pôle Bijou Galerie est situé en plein centre ville de Baccarat, en bord de Meurthe, dans un cadre privilégié verdoyant et à proximité immédiate des commerces (à 200m), de zone de stationnement et des attraits touristiques de la ville (église St-Rémy, Parc de la Roseraie…)

Course
What is small and intimate is often overlooked.

The Temporary Programme, Challenging Jewellery, aims to give an impulse to the jewellery profession by focusing on the applicability of jewellery-thinking in society, from the making industry to the market of limited art editions.

Tutors, guests and participants of the programme explore the attention paid to the small and intimate, the human handling, and the careful treatment of materials that they deem needed in the broader context of today's digitised society.

The programme allows the study of current notions of body-bound and human-focused objects and products. Through this approach it is attempting to think big on a small scale – which supposes an ability to understand micro working. The Temporary Programme challenges the subject of jewellery on a fundamental level – how it relates to our present time, its social and political implications, its relevance.

The input for Challenging Jewellery is based on intergenerational dialogue. The visiting tutors and guests – varying from theoreticians and curators to contemporary architects, designers and artists – guarantee a continuous renewal of viewpoints on and insights into a discipline known to traditions and historical design and theory connotations. The board with four key figures in the realm of jewellery and design ensures a solid foundation for the Temporary Programme.

Like the previous Temporary Programmes, Material Utopias, Materialisation in Art & Design, Fashion Matters and the current programme Radical Cut-Up, Challenging Jewellery works together with BA departments and workshops at Gerrit Rietveld Academie, such as Ceramics, Glass, Textile, CadCam, Wood, Metal and Photography.

THE ALCHEMICAL EGG - Visions et révélations d'une Enigme

Coming across the alchemical egg is gliding into the Arcana Artis, following the egg is diving into the Great Opus.

The study of Ars Magna, practiced throughout Europe, Egypt and Asia, arrived in Western Europe by the translation of an Arabian manuscript and, from that moment, as an underground river, the interest for this philosophical knowledge and practice never faded.
A search of knowledge, a millennial tradition, a proto-science, a discovery of the self; a quest of immortality through the creation and discovery of the Philosophical stone and the transmutation of the matter; an embryonic stage of chemistry: a discipline considered so obscure to be practiced in secret; a sort of witchcraft and one of the key for the recognition of the self, according to Jung: these are only few of the aspects related to Alchemy.

Chēmeía, this was the ancient Greek term for “alloying”, was allegedly considered as the practice for the transmutation of metals in gold, but the final aim was reaching knowledge, gnosis, in complete harmonious union with Nature. The study of Alchemy, through its three stages of knowledge and the concoction of elements, transmuted the matter using fire as the main media of transition: we focused on these passages to enlighten the works of the four contemporary jewellers called to showcase their own quest of the philosopher's stone.

By following the three stages of nigredo, albedo and rubedo, we wanted to set in our contemporaneity the alchemical cognitive path through the use of fire, metals and enamels in order to see how the Artists' intervention changes the status of the matter by concocting, dissolving, separating, distilling, purifying, fixing. This interpolation, made by the Artists-Alchemists, tends in one hand to pulverize Time, but, on the other hand, to fix it in a tangible piece.

How does humankind (and Artists in particular) gain a growing intervention in matter? And this intervention on the inner nature of the matter made by the Artist/Alchemist could be contemplated as an intervention on temporality? Does the Alchemist (and the Artist in our case) want to replace Time? And this concept of pulverization of Time is not an anticipation of what is the essential ideology of the modern world? Do we have Homo Faber first or the Alchemist?

With the support of the City of Castel San Giovanni (Piacenza, Italy) and the collaboration of AGC Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo, LAO Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School – Firenze, Charon Kransen Arts, Joya International Art Jewellery Fair, Klimt02 network, this international studio jewelry competition has become a relevant happening for the cultural environment and the community of arts in Val Tidone, every year by exploring an international vision more and more accredited and widening to the passionate and researchers for contemporary experimental jewellery.

Starting from the landscapes of Italy in the wine-making region of Emilia hills, enjoying positive and inspiring environments, it opens its borders involving established and emerging artists from every country to express their relation with this particular context. Contemporary jewellery here may be seen as a “fermenting” creative process: the challenge is to turn natural and available elements into something precious and unique.

A great attention is payed to the student sections, involving institutes for art education based all over the world which would offer an interesting view to younger students and undergraduates looking for further in/depth experiences (learning and master degree sections).


The theme of the competition:.
Private time and social interaction.

May jewellery in contemporary days be associated to our private time and our best moments to share?
Does it fulfil personal wishes and (or) social interaction?

Artists are invited to develop their concept within this issue.

The City, the environment and the surrounding landscape in which one lives, inevitably affects our doing and being. Architecture, urbanity, green space, colors, sounds, smells, neighborhood, open spaces, quality of life, mentality, politics, social and societal developments, old and new, climate, tradition, modify and characterize the city and the lifestyle.
Consciously or unconsciously - this is also reflected in the work and expressions from the artist living and working there. Born or moved to this place, it affects the vision and inspiration, existing is taken up and re-interpreted and refleocted. This expresses itself in the form, color, material and technics.
The current works of the participating artists from geographically, structurally and scenic different - large or small cities - reflect all this conditions.

Before the dawn of windshields, Man Ray sought out durable lenses to wear while driving. (Diane Venet, a jewelry collector who guest curated a 2011 show at New York's Museum of Arts and Design, says he was “always breaking his glasses and he loved to drive fast.”) Man Ray and his collaborator, the Italian goldsmith GianCarlo Montebello, spent months in the early 1970s perfecting a design: the Optic-Topic gold mask, which features a dense network of pinholes where one would expect to find cutouts for eyes. Although a few small dots wouldn't seem to do the trick, Venet, who owns the gold mask, has revealed, “You see through them as well as with glasses.”

Another GEM Montebello collaboration, Pendants Pending (1970) are more fondly remembered as “the lampshade earrings” because they allude to Man Ray's 1919 spiral lampshade. Forever immortalized by French actress Catherine Deneuve, the artist designed them to be placed over the ears, so as not to weigh down the wearer's lobes with five-and-a-half-inch spirals.

East Meets West — Exquisite Treasures from the Aga Khan Collection

Since classical antiquity, the mutual fascination between the Orient and
the Occident has repeatedly brought about new art forms. In the Art Deco

period, for example, exotic ornamental designs and calligraphies from Chi-
na, Japan or the Middle East lent themselves perfectly to fulfilling people's

desire for decorative and unusual luxury. Also, the 1920s were characterized
by technological progress and rapid societal changes, both of which were

reflected in the jewellery and the arts of that era in the shape of exuber-
antly exotic ornamentation and colours, wedded to clear-cut shapes and

austere materials. The vanity and cigarette cases, clocks and watches, plus
the pieces of jewellery, from the Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan
Collection bear eloquent witness to this. The collection originated when,

one Christmas, the Prince gave his wife a superbly ornamented case by Car-
tier as a gift. This was the beginning of what evolved into a comprehensive

collection comprising creations by Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, Boucheron,

Lacloche Frères and the selfsame Cartier company, all of which evoke associ-
ations with glamorous dinner parties in exotically decorated apartments or

smoky night clubs.
A magnificent book about the collection was published in New York in 2017
under the title of »Jeweled Splendors of the Art Deco Era. The Prince and
Princess Dadruddin Aga Khan Collection«.

Granulation – An intensive course on the craft of ancient joining techniques

The goal of the workshop is to teach the basic skills of ancient joining techniques and the strategies used to make artistic artefacts in the past with an eye on using these skills to design and fabricate contemporary objects. While the technique of granulation requires long-term repetition to develop proficiency and mastery, the basic skills and insights gathered during the course will prepare the participant to continue in autonomy.

Language lesson: Italian, English, French



David Loepp was born in 1951 and grew up in Wyoming. In 1969 he moved to Paris. Three years later he moved to Sicily where he apprenticed as a goldsmith and sculpture. Fascinated by ancient jewellery, he worked primarily with the exponents of “archeo-gioielleria” in Messina and Rome where he opened a workshop in 1996. He has worked in experimental archaeology for the past two decades in collaboration with the University of Rome la Sapienza, Italy's National Research Council and the Antiquitates Center for Experimental Archaeology in Civitella Cesa.
Long-term projects in experimental archeology include:
The refining of gold and thermodynamic characterization of the process based on evidence from Sardis and the interpretation of textual sources;
Characterization of the color phenomena of shakudo;
Ancient strategies for the reduction of chalcopyrite ores and the winning of copper;
Joining methods in antiquity.

They hold together, connect, link, merge as well as they control, check and supervise.
We play with the image on different levels: In a technical, and philosophical way.
Bridges are the result of human efforts to relate and connect two topographic locations permanently said Georg Simmel in "Bridge and Door". I would like to include fixed installed draw- or swing bridges and skywalks, balconies and stairs as well.
In addition, ladders are interesting for our considerations even if they are only temporary bridges. Just because of that reason, they come very close to the character of brooches.
Brooches in their original function as fibulas are connecting different parts of textiles and have a temporary character. You can fix and remove them easily. In this case, the connected textiles separate themselves and the brooch gets the character of an independent object.

In the workshop we approach the topic from different directions:
1) Bridges as an idea and creative template for brooches. Everyone brings the idea of his/her favourite bridge. Spontaneous models will be made with the limited material, drawings, sketches.
2) We investigate connections as temporary attachments between different materials or objects. Experiments with the mechanism of fastenings. Examination of relevant connections in everyday objects.
3) Design of a brooch with an integrated fastening as a part of the independent brooch object. We study traditional craftsmen mechanisms and explore extraordinary solutions.


About Tasso Mattar:
Studied sociology at the University of Cologne (1969-75) and jewellery design at the University of Applied Arts at Pforzheim (1975-79). He was well noted for his thematic exhibitions. We remember his bone exhibition " jewellery in a butchers " 1986, which became a legendary jewellery event. This presentation of the "precious" in the "trivial world" is a model of Mattar's special aesthetical approach which includes everyday objects as well as everyday life. His artwork from bone, concrete, soapstone, amber, granite etc. are collected by museums and private collections. He directed workshops in Singapore, Israel, Finland, France, Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg. He lives and works in Artà/Mallorca, a small village in Spain.
