The space Solidor welcomes from March 31st till June 10th, 2012, five Swiss artists : David Bielander, Kiko Gianocca, Andi Gut, Therese Hilbert and Otto Künzli. "Campagne-sans-Mer"* in reference to Cagnes-sur-Mer, indicates the beautiful country that Suisse is, whose green landscapes contrast with the azure of our Mediterranean Sea. This wink of eye of the artists welcomed during this exhibition, is representative of all the humor that characterizes them.

 
   
The Basel artist David Bielander, the pupil of Otto Künzli in Munich, plays with the contrast between deceit and the truth. His jewels captivate the observer funnily and serious and put in a good mood the carrier as well as the observer of the jewel. To him, everything turns around images which he tries to realize in a very direct way. For example, this slug, which we notice only little in the nature, we remove him or we ignore it.

But, it is not a question for Bielander of observing the slug, he is interested only in the image which we have of it or that he imagines that we have it. And so he manages to think that this slug is, from the point of view of the jewel, the best brooch of the world : she is a communicator and possesses the perfect shape. He is not provocative, it is not there either to cry out its support for the defenders of animals. The important is the only shape, such as it offers itself for us in the nature. In the analysis of the work of Bielander, we refer immediately to the representation - naturalist of René Magritte's pipe, nevertheless entitled " This is not a pipe ".

The French philosopher Michel Foucault also wrote about this paint, explaining that a representation is not identical to the original. Foucault underlines the fact that - demonstration of a visible contradiction obliges the observer to think about what it is advisable to understand when we speak about the reality of an object. The artistic creation of Bielander concentrates maybe on the clarification of the reality, on the highlighted of the fact that an object remains for ever an object and that even the most beautiful brooch of gentian will never have the fragrance of the real. The image originates from David Bielander's imagination. It is only then that he goes in search of materials, those who would be the most susceptible to re-present most faithfully this first image.

The youngest artist of the exhibition is Kiko Gianocca, native of Italian Switzerland, where he has gone after numerous journeys around the world and around the long studies into miscellaneous domains. For him, the creation is confrontation, an exchange
between its internal world and the outside world. He is interested in the daily objects, used every day. He transforms them, confers them a new identity. The abstraction, the language appropriate for the forms establish the base of a new perception. As demonstrate
his brooches "With Other Eyes" whose black and brilliant surfaces reveal images of strangers or landscapes (sunset, kiss, etc.), waking the first feelings while leaving the open field with the personal interpretation. These brooches illustrate successfully the approach of the artist to the abstraction, advancing
the transformation rather than result.

The various materials used in his works invite in the touch. Kiko works silver, porcelain, resin, plastic and felt. His jewels seduce so much by their attitude, their transparency and the clear language of their forms, that by the excellent quality of the direction, their discreet
poetry, which we get in fact only in the second glance. Kiko explains, about his art " the creation of objects, it is the exploration of what surrounds me, of what impacts on me. To handle materials, to elaborate new forms, it is like documentation. The pressing need to understand the parallel between the body and its environment, at the same time tangible and intangible, is often the point of departure of my inspiration. For me, the jewel is the link between both and
allows me to analyze my daily experiences".

Andi Gut, of Zurich, occupies since 2007 a chair to Hochschule für Gestaltung of Pforzheim, Germany. He is inspired by the nature, but also and particularly, by the mystery and the magic of the technique. The series as "Mimesen" or "Electrosmog" are representations of the nature. The fragile forms and the colors pastels imitate the plants which the inhabitant of cities does not even see. The nature becomes the red thread of its works, but without aspiring to an aesthetics naturalist. It is not the concrete appearance which will be represented, but the beauty of the nature. Andi Gut uses the nylon, sculptured, colored, often in connection with some metal, pearls, precious stones, and also draws from old techniques of engraving, to perfect the impression of mystery. The smaller ornaments evoke the wave, remind messages from a distant world, of one somewhere else.

The jewels of the series " Electrosmog " aim at drawing our attention on the fact that technique is printed as well by magic, as it adorns itself more and more attributes of the jewel. Gut says : " before, people believed in the magic energy of the jewel. It is likely that it
always possesses it, even if it does not appear more than in a very subtle way. But how make, today, the radiant energy of the jewel understand? Maybe we can measure this magic today as one electrosmog*. My jewels are based on the idea that the jewel send signals and that these signals can be visibles. The jewel possesses an aesthetic radiation which has to sublimate the normal progress of the everyday life. "

Therese Hilbert, the artist from Zurich who lives in Munich, finds her strength in the intimate relation between the man and the jewel. Her slogan : " it is the jewel which carries me ".

Her big black necklaces of the 80s, her stuffed colored brooches, as small plastic pillows, arouse the admiration even today. Therese Hilbert draws his inspiration from the journeys, the nature and the volcanoes which fascinate her. For her, " every human being wears the ember within it ", this ember which gives birth to the creativity and to the passion. " For a long time and without failing, I am attracted by the Greek archipelago. Some islands are of volcanic origin. For some, these volcanoes are extinct, harmless, peaceful. Others on the other hand are active, unpredictable, even if they do not belch, even if they sleep. They do not frighten. The inside is invisible. I make it abstraction and I articulate forms, reflection on the imagination, the reality and the memory. A reference to the formings geo-volcanic, to colors and to landscapes, to traces of past eruptions. Interpretations of tangible strengths preceding the news eruptions. "

And Eugène Ionesco's quotation, given by the artist appears as an explanation: " for the moment, I exist. Angers sleep in me who can explode, then inhibit. Jets of anger or enjoyment are lying in me, which burst, which catch fire. I have in me the energy, the fire, the lavas. I am a volcano. Mostly, half calmed. My craters wait that the continuous bubbling rises, goes out, lets off stream, extends, that my passions, incandescent, pour, set on fire, propagate, in the assault of the world. "

The artist from Zurich Otto Künzli appears among the pioneers and the agitators of the environment of the contemporary jewel. His minimalist jewels, realized in the purest craft tradition, underline in a subtle way the societal and political phenomena, such as the power,
the consumerism, the vanity and the frivolity. The artist endows his jewels with humor and irony without repeating. His realizations are precise and sober, but often ambiguous.

Since 1991, Künzli teaches at the Akademie der Bildenden in Munich in Germany, encouraging his pupils to develop a thought criticize around the jewel and to favor the questioning of the known things. " We are proud to be applied artists ", explains Künzli, that is to say it is in the specific relation between the object and the man, who is unique for the jewel, that we find our strength. "
