Guess what. September started on a very good note for us contemporary jewellery lovers in Greece because this Friday 6th September a wonderful exhibition is opening at Marneri Gallery.
Gallery: Eleni Marneri
Opening: 06.09.2013 at 19:00
El.marneri galerie invites you to the world of Pattern, a contemporary jewellery exhibition of 9 jewellery makers who come from different nationalities and create stories based on combination of materials. Strongly connected to the body, the jewels are the mirror of the experimentation and sensibility of each artist.
A new world is created : P a t t e r n.
We invite the public to enter into this new dimension of repeated elements. And to follow the rhythm of our energy and creativity.
All artists are Alchimia alumni. I’m pretty exited to see this show and of course I’ll be uploading lots of photos for you to see my dears 🙂
Here’s a sneak peek with short descriptions of the artist’s work taken from Alchimia’s blog.
the work of Anna Drexel is about borders (individual and social) which we all need to set and about their interference in the life of each individual.In this way her pieces are really interactive, she sets these borders and the owner can decide to break them or not.
Azahara was an exchange student from Valencia and she was the one to install her ‘private garden’ at Alchimia’s window, which is also the main picture on the exhibition’s poster (fishing wire and and about 200 cups filled with color, plants, objects and personal memories).
Chiara Cavallo, born in Rome, has also studied for three years in Alchimia after a BA in industrial design. She has produced a very poetical body of work deploying a wide range of materials and techniques.
Enrica Prazzoli was the fourth Italian in this class and also her graduation project […] is really difficult to present in its actual quality through the photos in our possession.
Several agendas were fighting for attention in her ambitious “Spoon” project: the concept of “ospite”, the notion of imperfection and the link to social rituals.
Francesca is from Perugia, italy and she has studied at Alchimia for three years. Her excellent work during this year was awarded with the Alchimia Prize.
Francesca’s work is based on her very personal history and her great achievement is to have put it in a wider context resulting in rich and evocative pieces.
Lavinia Rossetti – her project I-denti-ty is at the same time humorous and impactful. She did a great job in caring well about all aspects of her work from packaging to presentation and catalogue. Dealing with teeth – denti in Italian- therefore the title I-denti-ty her pieces were presented in glass as happens to the false teeth at night and braquets at day.
The Austrian Lena Grabher worked on the concept of memory and data conservation. Her pieces made of audio tape and silver are abstract and elegant and she has reached a really high level of execution. She has also been chosen for the Marzee Graduation Show in Nijmegen.
Nur Terun’s work is conceptual and difficult to understand from just photos, also because her catalogue […] is a very important part of it. (S)he worked with cards (the usal pokercards in commerce everywhere) glueing them together in stacks and then slicing them again in thin layers.
The conceptual coherence of this project, resolved in all its different aspects – the material development, the presentation and the publication is all the more commendable because it led to a result which is not immediately visually appealing, but weaves a subtle charm once observed in its entity.
