Intro
The exhibition '7 artists for 7 days', on its first edition and strongly supported by Laura Helena Aureli, owner of myday-byday space, is meant to be the first in a series of editions dedicated to contemporary jewelry.
 

Artist list

Noy Alon, Fabrizio Bonvicini, Sébastien Carré, Laura Forte, Patricia Gallucci, Christine Jalio, Ana Barbu Uzura
The event features two Italian and five international  artists, and the materials used range from wood to precious metals, from found objects to resin and brass, from porcelain to semi-precious stones.

Love and curiosity for colour, shape, material and details have brought Noy Alon to the world of jewelry. Israeli, a degree at Schenker college of engineering, design and art, her idea is  that a piece of jewelry is a functional work of art, which contains emotions, thoughts and inspiration. Her collection of jewels made of gold plated brass & polymer raises the question of what is the boundary between jewelry and objects.

Based in Bucharest, Ana Barbu / UZURA, winner of Autor 2016 , is an eclectic personality  that after a degree in literature and a short time work experience as a journalist, decided to train in the field of contemporary jewelery, experimenting various techniques and materials and attending Assemblage jewellery school in Bucharest.
Her jewels come out from casual findings in places that are significant to Ana (like her grandparents’ home, abandoned but still throbbing with memories) . And each piece is an autobiographical quote, an emotion which is recovered in order to be passed on to the person who is going to wear her pieces.

Poetic but also highly evocative is  the work of  Fabrizio Bonvicini , one of the two Italian artists. His pieces are made of various types of wood treated in a completely natural way. The coatings themselves  are the result of the oxidation of natural wood and the surface is not treated with paint nor any other non natural medium.

Completely different is the work of Sebastién Carré , a French designer based in Strasbourg. The artist aims to investigate, through the creation of jewelry made from beads, stones, textile and more, the relationship with the body and interpersonal communication. The making of his pieces of jewelry is inspired by cell mitosis  and he wants  to create objects to represent parts of the human body.

Young Italian goldsmith  Laura Forte skillfully creates jewelry in precious metals through which she  expresses her inner world, conveying her feelings and emotions into elegant and minimal structures, where her aesthetics clearly reveals itself. 

Christine Jalio, young designer living in Finland, has won international reputation by exhibiting at the best events dedicated to contemporary jewelry in Europe. She’s showing in  Rome her latest  collection, ’Past loss, future'. With these jewels, made of silk clay, Christine tells stories about  time passing by and life before and after the great turning points and transition moments.

An ode to the ephemeral in nature the porcelain jewelry by  Patricia Gallucci: life, death, the passage of time, strength and delicacy, simplicity and harmony in nature inspire her work. In her ‘Broken’ series Patricia focuses on the fracture that reveals the fragility of materials and the true nature of the objects. Using porcelain and elements from nature, she builds, breaks  and reconstructs in an attempt to enhance the imperfect edges and thus focus on discovery, contemplation, acceptance and reassessment.

Not to be missed  then, this exhibition really is  an opportunity for jewelry addicts and design lovers in general to observe closely the world of wearable art .

The project, developed together with the curator Letizia Maggio, a jewelry designer herself ,  aims to present to both collectors and general public the work of seven designers from very different backgrounds and training, creating unique jewelry by means of various techniques and different materials.
