Emanuele Cannoletta

Ciò che amo del mio lavoro è il silenzio.
Mi piace la quiete che avvolge il mio workshop mentre sono all'opera, il lento movimento delle mie mani che danno forma alle mie opere.
Gioco a mischiare i metalli pregiati con i materiali più improbabili nel tentativo di sfidare ogni volta il concetto di "prezioso", affiancando tecniche artigianali ad estetiche contemporanee al fine di creare gioielli ibridi che vibrano irrequieti nel tentativo di spezzare quell'equilibrio ottenuto dalla fusione di opposti.
Mi considero un artigiano alla costante ricerca di ciò che si cela al termine della frase "cosa succederebbe se provassi a fare.."

International Jewellery Competition Silver

Only 11 days left to submit your work for the 28. International Jewellery Competition “Silver”!

Deadline: 1 April 2019

(Works must reach the Gallery within this deadline - the date on the postmark is irrelevant.)
Also, take into account, please, that works sent from abroad may get stuck at the Customs which causes delays in their arrival at the Gallery.
This year it’s also possible to submit the works directly at the AMBERIF Fair in Gdansk (Poland). We’re waiting to meet you and receive your works at the Gallery stand C 603.

The Entry Form and Competition Terms & Regulations are available at http://silver.legnica.eu/en/?Competitions:SILVER

As always, winners can expect (not only) silver awards.

As usual, the Competition is the main event of Legnica SILVER Festival, which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary. We’re preparing a congratulations postcard for the Festival in the form of a film and we’d like to invite to this project everyone who has ever taken part in the Jewellery Competition, been to Legnica during SILVER Festival or has been connected with the Festival in any other way. We’re asking you to record a short movie with your smartphone, in which you can simply give your greetings and congratulations to the Festival or say a few words more, for example:


- how you’re associated with SILVER,
- what you remember about your stay in Legnica,
- any special memories,
- funny stories,
- people you met in Legnica,
- friends you made there,
- anything else you’ve always wanted to tell the Festival but never had a chance.

We’re looking forward to receiving your competition works and your films! (Deadlines are the same).

Your Silver Team from the Gallery of Art in Legnica

PS. Submission of a film is equivalent to expressing agreement for the film to be displayed publically and distributed together with other materials promoting the Gallery of Art in Legnica and Legnica Jewellery Festival.

I make jewellery because it makes me feel balanced. And because of my urge to communicate.
Jewellery is contagion. Thoughts and feelins pass from the maker to the viewer just like viruses.
Wearability and perfection are not relevant to me. They may happen , but please don't seek for them in my work.

From a young age, it was clear that I wanted to make a type of jewelry that was not merely ornamental. The jewel is my way of expressing myself artistically with total liberdat, the only condition is that it is related and can be used by a person. I usually work with series, I never know how many pieces, I stop when I think that I have nothing else to say on the subject. I try to create a symbiosis between the jewel and its bearer, so that the two become rich. I feel like a filter trying to express the nuances of the world from my point of view. Few contemporary jewelers come from a family tradition and I was lucky enough to learn the trade with my father and now it is my daughter Elena who learns from me, I feel like the link of a very old chain that transmits ancestral knowledge.

The research is based on the relation between different materials and on how they can converse and enhance each other. The contrast is essential, organic shapes combined with simple figures, poor materials with precious ones, light with darkness. Creating a suggestion in the observer without using figurative elements provokes a wider range of possibilities and reflections. For this reason the creation process becomes extremely important, the spontaneity of the form and the composition are fundamental, the imperfection becomes strength and the fragment infuses a feeling of completeness.
The jewel is born from the transformation of wood into coal, the metamorphosis of the material imparts value to the object, telling a story of unleashed shape shifting potential.

Beatrice Pieroni Lubé

Italia

Artista e orafa, Beatrice Pieroni Lubé vive e lavora a Firenze. Nel corso degli ultimi anni ha esposto in varie Gallerie e Musei, in Italia e all’estero, e dato vita a performance ispirate al gioiello d’Arte. Molte delle sue “microsculture” sono entrate in importanti collezioni private. Attenta da sempre a forgiare nuovi stili espressivi, il suo lavoro si concentra principalmente sull’analisi della natura descritta attraverso la lente dell’introspezione. Volumi densi e corpi che si muovono all’interno di uno spazio preciso rappresentano un linguaggio attraverso cui comunicare, di volta in volta, armonia e rottura, tensione e distensione, apertura e chiusura, portando avanti un gioco di scambio empatico con l’ambiente e l’universo che lo circonda.
Il ricorso alla microscultura orafa consente a Beatrice Pieroni Lubé di plasmare direttamente la materia fisica, conferendole quella densità inusuale in grado di sottendere il concetto che sta alla base del suo lavoro. Bellezza e armonia sono semplici punti di partenza. Dietro si nasconde un anelito che conduce all’origine del pensiero artistico. Ogni suo lavoro, nell’essere unico e irripetibile, manifesta apertamente questo slancio al confronto fra ciò che esso rappresenta e ciò che in realtà comunica. Un vocabolario senza fine dal quale attingere per comporre, conferendo al metallo l’anima e l’energia di un’opera d’arte.
Una fra le ultime esperienze espositive è stata quella al MAD, Museum of Art and Design di New York nell’aprile 2018, con la mostra LOOT, MAD about jewelry.

Artist and goldsmith, Beatrice Pieroni Lubé lives and works in Florence. Over the last few years she has exhibited in various Galleries, in Italy and abroad, and given life to performances inspired by the art jewel. Many of her "microsculptures" have become part of important private collections.
Always attentive to forge new expressive styles, her work focuses mainly on the analysis of nature described through the lens of introspection. Dense volumes and bodies moving within a precise space represent a language through which to communicate, from time to time, harmony and rupture, tension and detente, opening and closing, carrying on a game of empathic exchange with the environment and the universe that surrounds it.
The use of goldsmith microsculpture allows Beatrice Pieroni Lubé to directly shape the physical matter, giving it that unusual density capable of underpinning the concept that underlies her work. Beauty and harmony are simple starting points. Behind hides a yearning that leads to the origin of the artistic thought. Each of her works, in being unique and unrepeatable, openly expresses this impetus to the comparison between what it represents and what it actually communicates. An endless vocabulary from which to draw into to compose, giving the metal the soul and energy of a work of art.
One of the latest exhibitions was at MAD, Museum of Art and Design in New York in April 2018, with the exhibition LOOT, MAD about jewelry.
