HOPE

Hope - a ruler of blue is the title of the online jewellery exhibition on display until 9 April 2021 at the Reverso Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal.

To visualize the exhibition click here

COLD SWEAT, the title of the 1st Lisbon Contemporary Jewellery Biennial, invites us to reflect on BODY, FEAR and PROTECTION in a programme that includes exhibitions projects, talks, meetings and masterclasses. The current pandemic forces us rethink our modus operandi, and the fear and uncertainty it has caused led us to choose a remarkable aspect in the history of jewellery – physical and spiritual protection – as the Biennial’s theme, and what it means in the 21st century as a subject to discuss.

The Biennial’s which is scheduled to run primarily from 16–19 September 2021with one main show opening in July and more events running until 20 November—prime aims are to encourage research into the history of jewellery by making bridges and connections with other subjects, to foster contemporary jewellery by creating new settings for exhibitions and to promote meetings and interchanges between researchers, curators, artists and students, between themselves and with the Portuguese and an international public. The Biennial also wants to urge us to ponder over the complex moment we are all going through and stress the importance of art in life and all our daily lives.

Alcune delle sue opere sono disponibili in Archivio Negroni a Milano.

Collezione 'Kuchitehazemari'
Una volta compiute, abbandonando agli elementi le opere traforate in ferro, la formazione della ruggine testimonia il passare del tempo che si sovrappone alla mano dell’artefice producendo un risultato aggiunto, come se il gioiello potesse ‘fermentare’ e maturare sotto terra. In Giapponese il termine che significa ‘riposo’ e ‘fermentazione’ è lo stesso, in entrambi i sensi evoca la natura ristoratrice dell’intervento del tempo. (dall’intervista raccolta da K.Toporski sulla rivista Metalsmith, vol.36-3)

Fumiki Taguchi 田口史樹 1977, Ibaraki-ken, Japan
Lives and works in Kobe, Japan

Exhibiting in Japan, Munich (Micheko Gallery) and London (Collect), he won the prestigious Herbert Hofmann Prize in 2013 and selected again in 2014 and in 2016, with the impressive cover on the official Schmuck Catalogue. In Italy he won the Premio Cominelli Award in 2014 and has been invited to the exhibition Gioielli in Fermento 2016, courtesy of Charon Kransen Arts.

About 'Kuchitehazemari' body of works
Through the exposure to the elements causing a layer of rust to form, the signs of time passing is added to the hands of the craftsman producing an addictive result as jewelry could ferment and ripe beneath the earth; in Japanese the word for sleep and fermentation is the same, implying a restorative nature of time in both cases. / from interview with K.Toporski, Metalsmith vol.36-3

Gioiello e Thanatos

Cosa intimorisce nel pronunciare la parola “morte”? Dove ne possiamo trovare il significato?
In questo nuovo appuntamento, l’esperta Maria Rosa Franzin ci condurrà in un viaggio attraverso i piccoli oggetti in cui i popoli del passato racchiudevano simbolicamente il significato dell’uomo e della sua esistenza.

“Molti anni fa avevo visto una interessante mostra sulla vita ed il quotidiano nel popolo degli Etruschi e nelle loro case dell’anima. Le forme di piccole dimensioni, proprio come piccole case, erano considerate luoghi in cui veniva raccolto il significato dell’uomo e della sua esistenza”.

DOVE GUARDARE GLI EVENTI
Gli appuntamenti, per rispettare le norme anti Covid, sono sempre trasmessi in diretta sulla pagina Facebook ufficiale “Alla fine dei conti” e sul sito web www.casadelmantegna.it

Anche dopo la diretta, rimarranno online ed accessibili a tutti gratuitamente sui seguenti siti web:

GLI OSPITI

GIOIELLO DEVOZIONALE CONTEMPORANEO

Deadline for registration, April 30, 2021

Call for entry, Deadline November 30, 2021


GIOIELLO DEVOZIONALE CONTEMPORANEO

https://form.jotformeu.com/eventiAGC/Devotional-Jewels

 

Each artist should present take into consideration the "theme of LOSS" intended as sudden, total and permanent absence.

"Intimate Relationship", the theme of Vonmo Studio's second exhibition, was determined last summer when everyone was talking about the life-long impact from the family of origin. After hesitating for a long time, I finally got the courage to talk about my family with my friends. At that time, I determined the theme of the second session as "Intimate Relationship", a social topic related to generations.

Growing in a big family of immature parents and elders, I must be sensitive to their frailty and emotional outburst all the time. "Einstein and Einstein" (A film directed by Cao Baoping, and you can learn about the growth of our generation through this film) is a vivid showing of the dilapidation, depression and helplessness of traditional Chinese family education. Hearing the "elders" in the movie roared out familiar words that educated the next generation in the dialect of my hometown, I am immediately pulled back into the abyss of childhood helplessness step by step... It turns out that we all grow up in such a helpless condition: It is always the closest relationship that hurts each other badly. Once I even believed that I was born with a mature mind, but was slowly worn down into a lonely and naive person, or I was just the product of a family education tragedy. And my second growth stage, relearning to love and be loved, started from the escape from my family and living with my husband. In the book "Educated: A Memoir", Tara Westover explores herself step by step, tries to see her family and the world from a new perspective, and finally reconciles with herself. In the relationship with your relatives, lover or friends, I think every one of us will experience such a process in this "Intimate Relationship": escape to find new beliefs and sustenance, and ultimately come back to reconcile with ourselves, so as to maintain a healthy intimacy with others.

In the "Intimate Relationship", nobody is wrong, because everyone treats each other in the name of love which is relatively selfish. There is seldom great love in this relationship, so misunderstanding and resentment will arise. In fact, this relationship also means "my body is different from yours". It’s just like two intersecting geometric shapes, in which some parts fit well, some opposite, some can't be touched anyway, and others that seem to fit together, but fragmented when magnified… So it becomes difficult to tell, from a single aspect, whether we’re happy or painful in the "Intimate Relationship". In this exhibition, with your body as a carrier, you can express the inmost emotion through your jewelry, reinventing yourself in the theme of "Intimate Relationship".
