Gioielli in Fermento Award 2018 8th edition
Award / 13 May 2018 - 28 May 2018
- Eliana Negroni
With the support of the City of Castel San Giovanni (Piacenza, Italy) and the collaboration of AGC Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo, Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School, Charon Kransen Arts, Joya International Art Jewellery Fair, Klimt02 network, this international studio jewelry competition has become a relevant happening for the cultural environment and the community of arts in Val Tidone, by exploring every year an international vision more and more accredited and widening to the passionate and researchers for contemporary experimental jewellery.
Starting from the landscapes of Italy in the winemaking region of Emilia hills, enjoying positive and inspiring environments, it opens its borders involving established and emerging artists from every country to express their relation with this particular context. Contemporary jewellery here may be seen as a “fermenting” creative process: the challenge is to turn natural and available elements into something precious and unique.
A great attention is paid to the student sections, involving institutes for art education based all over the world which would offer an interesting view to younger students and undergraduates looking for further in/depth experiences (learning and master degree sections).
Theme: Private Time and Social Interaction
May jewellery in contemporary days be associated with our private time and our best moments to share? Does it fulfil personal wishes and (or) social interaction?
Artists are invited to develop their concept within this issue.
It may recall you once again to the analogy of a good glass of wine which can accompany a warm homely atmosphere or Your best time to share with others, to raise connection with people. These aspects are typical of the Mediterranean lands and traditions yet they are spreading also in the countries which had not a historical link to the culture of wine.
Moreover, the competition is about "fermenting" jewellery: You may interpret the theme according to your inspiration, provided that a certain kind of immaterial factor would reconnect your work - a wearable object (*) - to the idea of development and research in contemporary art jewellery: an outstanding result will come from a combination of concept, form, individuality, original technique, wearable feature.
The selection will respect the quality of the piece and the coherence with the collection which will be put together on purpose for the exhibiting project Gioielli in Fermento 2018.
(*) necklace, pendant, brooch, ring, earrings, other wearable object - (clothing are excluded)
