Fifteen pieces, five artists, three colours and One Great Opus: this is The Alchemical Egg, an exhibition investigating the three stages of alchemical knowledge, interpreted by three goldsmiths and two enamellers, curated by Nichka Marobin, organized in collaboration with Hannah Gallery by Klimt02 and Joya Barcelona International Art Jewellery Fair.

Artist list: Aurélie Guillaume, Gigi Mariani, Wendy McAllister, Per Suntum, Tore Svensson

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 five 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?

All our questions are hints of something that we cannot seize entirely, as it happens for the works of Jheronymus Bosch. Everything related to him seems to be an enigma: the visions, the hells, the delights; the monsters, the men; his life emerges from the very few records found in historical archives, able to trace his movements; his works are always in discussion, both under the aspect of chronology, or under the aspect of the attribution; his oeuvres, again, never cease to emanate their spell and their fascination and we still do not know how it was that a King like Philip II of Spain loved Bosch's paintings so much to collect them in large number.

That obscure secrecy, painted in veils of light and shadow, almost clear to be described, but far away to be easily decoded, has been clarified along the years through some reading keys, and the strict order of his triptychs has been revealed, even if in all the scenes a center seems always being lacking.

Many have been the aspects that influenced Bosch's oeuvre, but the most intriguing one, according to us, was the one related to Alchemy. Bosch disseminated his works of eggs, shells, spheres: through a forest of symbols, these elements seem to be related to Alchemy and the emblem of the egg, considered as the Alchemical vessel, emerges from the panels.

Thus, the Alchemical Egg is the beginning - ab ovo - and the end of our journey, recalling the circularity of time and matter.

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.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

COMINELLI FOUNDATION AWARD FOR INTERNATIONAL JEWELLERY
SPECIAL EDITION 2017 -2018

Creative competition for the design of limited edition jewelry

*In this context, the prototype should be specifically designed for a limited edition, which means that participants should submit one model and that this model is going to be produced in a limited number of samples with handcrafted or with industrial techniques.

Theme: A jewel of a Lake

“O Benaco*, che gonfi le tue onde e fremi come il mare.” Publio Virgilio Marone
“O Benaco*, che gonfi le tue onde e fremi come il mare.” Publio Virgilio Marone
The Lake Garda has always been the object of artistic contemplation. Since antiquity it left a striking impression on some of the most important figures of the cultural world: from Catullo to Dante, from Goethe to Gabriele D'Annunzio, from Klimt to Maria Callas.
Its intense and bright colours, its wide horizon delimited by the peaks of the Alpine mountains, its clear light and the uniqueness of its natural flora, are all distinctive traits which can be appreciated through a multisensorial experience.
Drawing inspiration from the verses of Virgil or from other famous personalities who were fascinated by the Lake Garda, the authors are asked to design a piece of jewelry which resembles the beauty of this territory.
* Nowadays more widely known as Lake Garda, it was named BENACUS by the Romans, who used this appellative since I century a.D., that is since the moment they had started colonizing the Venetian mainland.

Jewelry atelier founded by Ana Pina

“For our last number, I'd like to ask your help. Would the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands? And the rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewelry.”
John Lennon, Prince of Wales Theatre, London,1963

A provocation to launch the provocation: can the worlds of music and jewelry meet?
Don't know about you, but in Tincal we are constantly listening to music. Although this is not a source of direct or conscious inspiration, the constant presence of this sonorous scenery influences almost everything that we do or feel. We can be sad or happy depending on the music we're listening, we may listen to a sad or happy song depending on the way we're feeling.

Music brings with it melodies and sounds, stories, poems and messages.
It can identify with a style, a personality, an icon, an era, a memory.
It can be heard, played, sung... and even being born in the universe of sounds, it can be an extremely visual stimulus and appeal to all senses - yes, a bit like jewelry.

We invite the authors of this year to be inspired by a song or a lyric, a singer, a band or a musician, a note, an instrument, a stage or a symbol of a musical style... any of the immense dimensions of this world, so, who knows, maybe together we can compose a collective exhibition as harmonious as a symphony.

Fashion and contemporary jewellery are complex systems in which, in addition to the fundamental identity concepts contained therein, it is possible to trace a stratification of different "readings". They are systems that investigate art, sociology and anthropology: they are systems of symbols and systems of forms.

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.
