À la recherche du joyau perdu

Adobe Systems

Vous êtes cordialement invité à l’exposition de:
Beate Klockmann & Philip Sajet
à la recherche du joyau perdu

Vernissage le jeudi 7 avril dés 17h00 en présence des créateurs
Exposition du 7 avril au 26 mai 2011
Ouverture le samedi 9 avril de 11h00 à 17h00
Beate Klockmann et Philip Sajet maintiennent vivante l’histoire symbiotique sans début ni fin de la pierre et du bijou. Avec leur intervention cependant, le joyau n’est plus seulement joyau en fonction de sa rareté, sa préciosité ou sa qualité, mais également du fait de leur simple déclaration de  volonté… les définitions se bousculent, même le verre ou le métal deviennent « pierre »… une recherche formelle elle aussi sans fin, assidue, minutieuse, consciencieuse et consciente, maîtrisée, désirée. Mais finalement, le joyau n’est-ce pas aussi et surtout ce qui nous tient à coeur ? Voici un travail sous forme de trésor.

La Ingrid és una dissenyadora tèxtil de Ginebra (Suïssa) que treballa amb tècniques com el ganxet i els brodats per fer les seves joies.

Ingrid is a textile designer from Geneve (Switzerland) and she works with techniques like crochet, knitting, embroidery and application to make her jewellery.

”Calypso” presents a design who is inspired by structures, built with metal filament, the research of doing, experiment, observation and selection brought me to the three-dimensional element “Calypso”, a clear, graphic, contemporary style.
“Anno dazumal” is a play with an old technique that was developed in Berlin and known as “Berlin Iron Jewellery”. I was interested to catch that style and to transform in a modern appearance.
Tradition and memories are conjoined and lead to a sublime appearance that alludes to “former days” and invites the beholder’s imagination to join the impression.

Ahir vaig descobrir la feina d’aquest joier de Ginebra, increïbles els collarets que aconsegueix combinant pedres, fòssils, escarabats, diamants i or. Gilbert té el seu taller obert des dels anys 60 i les seves peces a més d’haver estat exposades per tot el món han estat premiades moltes vegades. No és d’extranyar que fundés i obrís el Museu de la Joieria a Ginebra (Musée des Cabinotiers Genevois), per ell és una altra manera de demostrar que la joieria no és només la seva professió sinó que també el que més estima.

The exhibition
The exhibition brings together works by 58 jewellery-makers of 3 generations (12 masters, 39 pupils, 7 pupils of pupils) who have emerged from 10 schools in various countries: Germany, Spain, Finland, France, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal and Switzerland. It is organised around the first-generation teachers, with the addition of their pupils and, in some cases, the pupils of their pupils. The tradition that the Swiss are great travellers is confirmed here: of the 17 Swiss jewellers included, 5 of whom currently teach abroad, 5 pursued complementary training outside Switzerland before returning home.
The choice of pieces was carried out in agreement with the creators. The majority of the works date from the last five years. In a few cases they are older because they are emblematic of the work of particular teachers. Each creator has the same module at his/her disposal, without any sort of hierarchy: a trolley on wheels offering a presentation area of around 1m2. This display option conveys the very great mobility of jewellery creators: both the teachers who move around giving workshops and the pupils who follow the teacher of their choice. Despite every effort on the scenographer’s part, a piece of jewellery presented in a display case is nothing but a miniature sculpture. It lacks its natural support, the body. To compensate for this absence from the exhibition, some of the jewellery pieces are also shown being worn by means of black-and-white photographs taken by students of the Ecole de Photographie in Vevey (CEPV).
The exhibition’s organisation and scenography were undertaken by Carole Guinard, jewellerymaker and scenographer at the mudac.

Aquest cap de setmana he tingut el plaer de poder viatjar a Ginebra per visitar les exposicions de Joieria que aquestes tres cases (Sotheby’s, Christie’s i Phillips) subastaran els dies 15, 16 i 17 de Maig a la mateixa ciutat. Us he posat algunes de les joies que he pogut veure, tocar i probar-me…això sí, em sembla que hauré d’esperar a ser bastant rica per poder-me’n comprar alguna!!!! Per anar obrint boca podeu visitar les seves webs i saber que no cal anar a Ginebra per comprar alguna de les peces sinó que també es pot comprar per internet!! Que disfruteu dels catàlegs i a veure si us animeu a anar-hi algun any, és una gran experiència tant per un joier com per un gemmòleg.

Per cert!! Avui és SANTA GEMMA, des d’aquí un petó molt gran per la meva germaneta i per felicitar-la li dedico aquest post!!! Ja saps que la Gemma més bonica ets tu!!

“My work is based on the transparency of materials and light, the contrast between glass and metal, the fragility of one material compared with the strength and density of another. The forms created are the image of two beings that come to life, complementing and contadicting each other at the same time.”

Aquesta noia Suïssa m’ha deixat bocabadada, les seves peces són especials, tant en les formes com en els materials que utilitza per fer-les…a la seva web n’hi ha unes quantes més!!!
