Intro
Young artist working in the applied arts and technology will have the opportunity to show their work in the international competition TALENTE 2021 in Munich, Germany, during the International Trade Fair for the Skilled Trades from 10th to 14th March 2021.
In an area of 600 m², the works will be shown to a wide audience, with an international jury selecting the winners of the TALENTE prize. An
illustrated catalogue will be published. The aim of TALENTE is to promote young people with a particular manual talent and to show an interested audience the enormous potential which lies in the new generation in crafts and trades. The works will be the outcome of formal or technical considerations and experiments, showing something new and exceptional. Participants are chosen from any section of crafts and technology. They will have made the artefact by their own hands. Age limit is set at 33 in the domains of crafts, and at 35 in the domain of technology (at the time op applying).

The competition is publicly funded. This covers the space on the fair itself, the catalogue entry, and part of the transport of the objects to and from Munich.

>> Online applications entrance.
>> Open call information in German.
>> Catalogues of TALENTE and SCHMUCK.

The deadline for all applications will be the 5th of October 2020.

. The jury was impressed by the contemporary political references in Jordan Furze’s jewellery, by the immediate reaction to events almost in the form of a comment. The rings from the group "Nation Divided" are designed in every detail in relation to the subject of "Brexit", be it the surface, the shape, the text or the colour. This consistency with regard to design and content convinced the jury.. Category: Jewellery.. Jordan Furze

Isabelle Mackay-Sim. Object: Thios Dream of Flesh, 2018. Earthenware, constructed, glazed.. 62 x 43 x 39 cm. Photo by: Luis Power. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2020. From series: The Dream of Flesh. 
. Isabelle Mackay-Sim’s works attracted the jury by their sensual surface design. The artist uses the materiality of clay very consciously. The pleasure of kneading is to be felt in her works. The objects are also very mysterious and excite the desire to discover their shapes with eyes and hands. In addition, the objects are also a clear commentary (without being moral) on today’s desired body perfection.. Category: Ceramics.. Isabelle Mackay-Sim

Irina Razumovskaya. Vessel: Barkskin, 2018. Stoneware, hand-built, turned, engobed, glazed.. 70 x 30 x 30 cm. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2020. 
. The jury was fascinated by the contrasts the objects carry in themselves: On the one hand there is this minimalist form, on the other hand the artist uses an elaborate crumbling, peeling glaze that suggests transience and decay. One have to think of birch forests, which evoke a fairy-tale feeling, but also of dilapidated buildings reminiscent of past glory.. Category: Ceramics.. Irina Razumovskaya

. Dirk Vlaessen’s shoulder and head pieces from the series “Brave Hendrik” show a new type of clothing in the choice of material – plastics – and design, which allows a wealth of associations and reinterprets the body.

. Rose Ekwe's designs impressed the jury regarding her approach of producing innovative textiles from a naturally existing raw material which is also biodegradable. Therewith she is addressing a particularly sensitive topic, because the sustainability of the materials used is a major problem particularly in the textile industry. Another positive aspect of her textiles is the skin-friendly quality of the material.. Category: Materials and Technique.. Rose Ekwe

Sunniva Rademacher Flesland. Textile: Fixed Burberry coat and cashmere sweater, 2020. Cotton, cashmere, sewn, darning.. 54 x 43 x 2 cm. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2020. 
. Mending clothes is an art that almost no one masters anymore. It interesting to see how this apparently poor work is given a modern, sustainable appearance. The small repaired parts become a kind of jewellery. There is also a playful note in the mending that reminds at the improvisation and phantasy as a child in elaborating and making something beautiful out of stains in one’s exercise books..

Søren Krag. Textile: Enûma Eliš, 2020. Wool, bungee ropes, iron bars, rubber flooring, digital painting, digital jacquard loom.. 300 x 300 x 300 cm. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2020. 
. “Enûma Eliš” by Søren Krag deals with a traditional theme in a very modern way: He takes up the medium of tapestry to convey a universal content, but designs with a combination of forms and ornaments from different areas and styles, digital images and digital weaving. In this way he presents in an impressive way the continuity of tradition adapted to the changing of times.. Category: Textile.. Søren Krag

Micaela Mornaghi. Object: Integrating the sacred and the profane in everyday objects, 2020. Quartz, sodalite, blue lace agate, moss agate. Chrysoprase, stone cutting.. 8 x 1.5 x 0.5 cm each piece. Photo by: Vicky Polak. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2020. 
. Micaela Mornaghi’s series of cutlery-like shapes aims to combine the spiritual and the profane in the form of everyday objects. Her works look like usable spoons, forks or knives, but the beauty of the material, the subtlety of the colours and the slight transformations of the shape, which tend to be rather symbolic, indicate that the work is more of an amulet character..

Kristina Neumann. Pendant: Sill in Cylinder, 2020. Redbrick from Canberra, polymer clay, 925 silver, melted, glue, cord.. 4 x 8.2 x 2.9 cm. Photo by: Simon Cottrell. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2020. 
. The jury was impressed by the strong concept in the works by Kristina Neumann. Students usually live with their parents for a long time and, because of the good relationship with them, have no need to move out. The majority of this generation seems to be looking for security and stability. These works are to be seen as talismans for the younger generation. In addition, the jury found it exciting that the hanging and moving property of jewellery also makes a conceptual sense here: the necklace hangs close to the heart and when the wearer moves, the object carefully distances itself from the body..

Vlastimil Šenkýř. Object: Untitled, 2020. Glass, metal oxides, handmade.. 10.8 x 13 x 8 cm. Photo by: Tomáš Slavik. Awarded at: Talente Competition 2020. From series: Lapis Philosophorum. 
. Vlastimil Šenkýř's project “Lapis philosophorum” impressed the jury by its obscuring the boundaries between nature and art. The works appear like alchemical products in which nature, art and science meet and therewith document the proximity in which these areas are currently located and inspire each other. At the same time they fascinate by their at the first glance almost inconspicuous appearance, which then reveals itself to be magnificent and of brilliant colour.. Category: Glass.. Vlastimil Šenkýř
