Redefine the Jewel IV, Dynamic Circuits, via Giovanola 19 / 21, Milan, from Sunday to September 28 18.30 hours.
The project re-define the jewel by Sonia Patrizia chain, now in its fourth edition, attempts to outline a search path in the fragmented landscape of contemporary jewelery, where there is no established definition and a history of structured gem and organic.
Contemporary jewelery is now a creative spirit that involves a substantial and growing number of artists, goldsmiths and designers, engaged in experimenting with forms, materials, techniques, in order to overcome or renew the traditional notion of ornament, making it a form independent art.
2010 from the competition "Redefining the Jewel" aims to disseminate and promote a new aesthetic of contemporary jewelery by searching for innovative materials and experimental, involved in a creative process where the added value does the idea.
This year the theme of the project was dedicated to the five senses: taste, sight, smell, touch, hearing, thus: "Redefining the Jewel in all senses, with all the senses."
The jewel is experiencing an emotion, and design it via the "Senses", the connotes a meaning, a meaning employees from their own artistic research.
The jewel-like "taste" (aroma, flavor); "View" (shapes, colors); "Smell" (perfumes, odors); "Touch" (materiality, plasticity) and "hearing" (sounds, noises). The fragrance allows us to travel through space and time, whereas touch conveys intimacy proxemics canceling the boundaries and limits, also hearing may give "voice" to the jewel and memory element, because we are reminded. All these associations of words and definitions allow us to understand how the senses lead us to a "journey" deep, to dive in the world.
The designers use materials and elements decontextualized and extrapolated from their context with the aim of transforming them into multifunctional jewels. They become accessories, yes, but not of fashion, but an “accessory” of the body, they dress it by conforming and modifying it. They demonstrate a strong personality, a strong identity that does not accompany the dress - as in the traditional meaning - but rise to co-stars, confirming its multifunctional and multipersonality character.
Sculptures, contemporary jewelery, fashion accessories, bijoux, terms that would blow up any traditional rubrication of functional design or high jewelery, yet they are - precisely because of their polymorphic and migrating nature - products of our contemporary, of our "liquid world" would say Zygmunt Bauman.
