THE EUROPEAN TRIENNIAL FOR CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY 2014
Exhibition

Does a piece of jewellery have to be wearable to count as jewellery? (Antonio Altarriba)

Contemporary jewellery is therefore far more than an adornment, it is the result of a conceptual research carried out by its designer. Every year, the WCC-BF invites you to take stock on this constantly evolving topic of creation.

Françoise Vanderauwera, the curator for this year’s selection of Belgian artists, shows us how she sees contemporary jewellery:
An extension of the perception of the artwork beyond the object itself and in particular a deliberate reflection on their signs and on the location of their (re) appearance shows us, in this European Triennial, the work of the Belgian artists that are most closely involved in the field of contemporary jewellery and in the issues of their time.

A genuine invitation to an increased aesthetic experience, when faced with pieces to contemplate and as a result of the intensity of the signals they emit, our thoughts turn to the very heart of the issues they symbolise.

"Our selection of works for this exhibition allows you to discover these markers and conquerors of a different beauty that still escapes any determinism. The imprint is the common theme running through the Belgian scene alongside the Finnish and Italian landscape. Whether they are essential, petitioners, poets, traditionalists, sarcastic, radical or young, they are the ones that write and record what constitutes contemporary jewellery: establishing signs".

This fifth edition presents the work of 44 masters of art and young talents.

Two European countries are invited to join Belgium in the framework of each triennial. After Great Britain in 2002, Spain and Estonia in 2005, the Netherlands and Switzerland in 2008, Germany and Portugal in 2011, Finland and Italy are doing us the honour of taking part in 2014.
The creations come from different cultures but have a common goal: innovation. This concept can be involved in the creative process in different guises. Certain artists experiment with new materials or take an interest in old, noble or humble materials that they use innovatively to create unlikely associations. Others explore new techniques to create jewels that reflect the times in which they live.

Lizzie Atkins, writer and maker herself, underlines this innovative approach when she describes the work of the new generation:
All these Italian artists are united by a will to bring out the full identity of the materials they choose. Thanks to an elegant and masterly alchemy, wood and iron become as sumptuous as the finest gold. Pinton’s absolutes of geometry may have disappeared from view but his belief in the perfection of construction still burns bright.

But the innovative aspect sometimes only concerns the approach, so the object can even completely disappear. In that case, is it still a piece of jewellery? Antonio Altarriba, the curator for the selection of the Finnish artists, tells us what he thinks about this:

"Can these objects be called jewels if they are not associated with the body or are too big? Does a piece of jewellery have to be wearable to count as jewellery? Teachers and art critics disagree with each other. Some argue that if the piece of jewellery serves no function, then it is expressive art, whereas others reject this point of view. In my opinion, creators of jewellery have to remain free in their quest for a new language, without any restriction because that’s the process that takes us “somewhere” and has always been at the origin of innovation.
Viewers will be able to make up their own minds when they discover a panel of jewels that will come together, respond to each other and contradict each other in a scenography by Evelyne Gilmont".

This event is devised and organised by the WCC-BF in partnership with the Museum Department of the City of Mons. It enjoys the support of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and of Design Flanders.

The fifth edition of the European Triennial for Contemporary Jewellery takes place until 28 December 2014 in the Grand Hall of the Anciens Abattoirs (the Old Slaughterhouse) in Mons, Belgium.
Prize of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation.

During the opening event, the Prize of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation was awarded to Nelli Tanner, Finnish artist.. The winner was selected by an international jury of experts in contemporary jewellery.


Catalogue

A four-colour catalogue for the exhibition will be published in three languages (French, Dutch and English). It will feature introductory texts and expert opinions. Each artist will be described on a double page, with a presentation of their approach and a reproduction of a piece. Biographical notes will appear at the end of the catalogue.


Lecture Day

Saturday 25 October 2014, Anciens Abattoirs- «Le frigo»
THE JEWELLERY OBJECT: FOR YOUR EYES ONLY?

Beneath the onlooker’s gaze, a work calls forth sensations and generates meaning. The observer’s sensibilities and imagination are stimulated by the object: its materials, dimensions, shapes, colours, surroundings... Brought together, all these elements cause the public both to understand the creator’s personal interpretation of jewellery and to pause, reflect and form their own opinions.

How does the public perceive this experience? And how does the creator apprehend and feel the viewer’s gaze? These questions were be tackled in the lectures given alongside the exhibition.
This day was devoted to a series of lectures aimed both at professionals and at knowledgeable amateurs.


Programme

10h00 : Registration

10h15 : SEMIOTICS OF CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY: BETWEEN PHOTOS AND OBJECTS

Maria Giulia Dondero, Semiotician, University of Liège (BE), 1st Vice-President of the French Semiotics Association (AFS), Vice- President of the International Association for Visual Semiotics (IAVS), participant in Groupe μ and, since 2009, researcher with the National Scientific Research Fund (FNRS).

In visual semiotics, the image or any iconoplastic statement is considered to be a self-sufficient unit of expression susceptible of being subjected to analysis. Maria Giulia Dondero will offer us an analysis of three pieces of contemporary jewellery, along with their photography. We will look at the way meaning gradually infuses visual objects. We will discuss the aura of the object and how that object is looked at, and the relationship between photography and the object that is photographed.

11h00 : Questions and answers

11h15 : THE PLEASURE OF PLATINA
Sofia Bjorkmann, Jewellery creator and Director of the Platina Gallery, Stockholm (S).
It’s said that sight is the superior of the senses. It is also said that what is consumed is not art. These issues occupies me while I am daily absorbing the flow of images of jewellery. I will share with you my appetite for the art of jewellery both as an artist and a gallery owner and how a project about food opened my eyes.

12h00 : Questions and answers

12h30 : Lunch + viewing of the Triennial of Contemporary Jewellery (unguided)

14h15 : JEWELLERY AND GENDER
Karen Pontoppidan (DE), a Danish jewellery maker living in Munich (D), is regularly invited to speak at seminars. Since 2006, she has been teaching the Jewellery and Corpus course at Ädellab, Stockholm.
Starting from the principle that jewellery is the earliest evidence of human civilisation, and that different cultures have different approaches to gender, Karen Pontoppidan will demonstrate that the process of creating jewellery is directly linked to this issue.

15h00 :DISCUSSION
Mediator: Carole Schuermans, Director of the arts centre Maison Particulière, Brussels.
Simultaneous interpretation in Dutch, English and French
