AMBER TRIP  NATURE MORTE

Place: Copper Museum, Patryzantów 3

Exhibition open till: 11th June 2017

  

"Amber Trip" is the largest specialized international jewellery show in the Baltic states. This is an event that found a unique place in the cultural map of the world. This international exhibition is counting its second decade and brings together hundreds of jewellery companies and designers from around the world to the capital of Lithuania. The 14th International Jewellery and Amber Show "Amber Trip 2017"  took place on March 8–11 and – as usual – was accompanied by Art Jewellery Competition, this year held under the title “Still Life.” This exhibition presents works submitted for the Competition.

  

Nature morte or still life, a genre commonly associated with painting, has been present in art from the earliest times. Contemporary artists still explore the topic with all its symbolic tradition as well as new connotations in different media. We asked jewellers and artists to explore this topic in jewellery form. There are very few works of contemporary art jewellery associated with nature morte. It may mean that such a subject is not an easy one for makers but it certainly is an interesting and inspiring one. Equally, amber, the recommended material (though not obligatory) fits well into the topic as it is itself often contains the fossilized remains of ancient life – and could be called a natural nature morte.

Grand Prize - Lauryna Kiškytė “The crown of shame” (Lithuania)

1st place ring category - Daniella Sarayae “RE-COVER” (Israel)

So, I decided to participate in the Amber Trip Nature Morte contest after seeing it advertised in Klimt02 and, guess what, I got an honorary mention! 

Not so many information can be found online, so here's a copy of the message and an image where you can (more or less) see my work in the background.

The work will be on show at Legnica "Silver" Jewellery exhibition from the 27th April to 11th June

Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle

Esse palavrão aí em cima no título é o nome de uma conhecida faculdade de artes situada num castelinho (antiga residência bispal) na cidade alemã de Halle. Um dos cursos que aí se ministram é o de joalharia (para além de cerâmica, pintura, escultura, livros de arte, têxteis e gravura, entre muitos outros), dirigido por Daniel Kruger.

Durante o Verão de 2016, este curso de joalharia e o do AR.CO, em Lisboa, fizeram um projecto conjunto que culminou em duas exposições: a primeira na Galeria Tereza Seabra, em Outubro, a segunda em Dezembro, em Halle, na Kunsthochschule.

Deixo aqui algumas imagens da inauguração desta última.

/O projecto PASSWORD consistiu na criação de uma peça de joalharia inspirada na descrição de uma obra de joalharia contemporânea / Sem ver o modelo, os alunos tiveram de se guiar pelas palavras de um parceiro da outra escola, aleatoriamente seleccionado / A escolha da obra para servir de modelo foi feita com base numa palavra "Password" enviada pelo parceiro/ Nenhum dos alunos sabia qual era esse modelo que estava a seguir antes do encontro em Lisboa / O projecto foi liderado por Catarina Silva e Daniel Kruger, com o apoio de Marília Maria Mira e Melanie Isverding/

As minhas peças ~ Kodamas ~ na exposição do Tincal Lab, no Porto

 

WIKI

Kodama (木霊 or 木魂?) are spirits in Japanese folklore that inhabit trees, similar to the dryads of Greek mythology. The term is also used to denote a tree in which a kodama supposedly resides. The phenomenon known as yamabiko, when sounds make a delayed echoing effect in mountains and valleys, is sometimes attributed to this kind of spirit, and may also be referred to as "kodama".

My pieces were inspired by Hayao Miyazaki's Mononoke Princess and a previous work I had done, creating and amulet for a school assignment at Arco - Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual. As I wrote for the catalogue of the exhibition "the sweet and sour feelings his movies convey are very much like the general experience we go through in our lives. Good and evil, light and dark, plain and pleasure and all the contrasts we can find are part of the universal mistery we try to understand. We hope there is more light than shadow, although we are never too sure. The little kodama spirits arising from the woods are - for me - the embodiment of this belief that good will prevail"
