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.
ELIGIBILITY:
This is a national and international competition open to craftsmen, designers, students from the schools and Institutes of design of secondary and university level, Design and fashion academies.

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.

PROGETTO AGC - JJDA
DIALOGHI 対話 ITALIA – GIAPPONE

A cura di: AGC Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo Italia
JJDA Japan Jewellery Designers Association Giappone

Il progetto ha iniziato a svilupparsi nel dicembre 2012, a Tōkyō, in occasione dell'incontro dei due Presidenti di AGC E JJDA che di comune accordo hanno deciso di inaugurare l'iniziativa nel 2015, anno in cui ricorreva il 50° anniversario dalla fondazione della JJDA e il decimo dalla fondazione di AGC.
Sono iniziati così i “Dialoghi” tra i soci con l'invio di immagini riferite alla reciproca cultura artistica per suggerire la creazioni dei gioielli, attraverso forme, colori e suggestioni di ciascun paese stabilendo che, al termine della mostra, i vari partecipanti avrebbero fatto dono l'un l'altro delle varie opere.

La realizzazione di questa mostra all'Istituto di Cultura Italiano di Tokyo dal 3 al giorno 11 luglio 2015 è stata possibile grazie alla collaborazione di molti amici e dei membri delle due associazioni, nonché grazie all'ospitalità del Direttore dell'Istituto Italiano di Cultura Sign. Giorgio Amitrano e con la presenza a rappresentare l'Ambasciata italiana la Sigora Rita Mannella Giorgi.
Per la successiva esposizione a San Rocco, al progetto sono stati concessi i loghi dell'Ambasciata Giapponese per i 150 anni di collaborazione Italia Giappone.
