DBC国际设计师专访

Everything has changed in 2020. The world has turned upside-down by a globe pandemic. What do we do? As a jeweller, what can we do in this ‘magic’ 2020?

 

2020年,一场全球性的流行病打乱了平静的生活。当一切开始回归正轨,一些国际首饰艺术家们用创作展现了他们对世界的看法,对未来的期望。

 

As curator and art director Herman Sun said ‘We are living in different areas around the world, but we do believe jewellery. I believe contemporary art jewellery sometimes was more than jewellery itself, it is a powerful spirit more than the objects.’ 

 

策展人兼艺术总监Herman Sun孙浩洋说:“我们生活在世界各地,但我们相信首饰艺术。我相信,当代艺术首饰有时不仅仅是首饰本身,它更多在于被寄托其中的精神力量。

 

 

Under this concept, we start this project. We invite contemporary jewellers around the world film their professional practice and edit into a documentary. The video will be showen during the Beijing Design Week 2020, which is also the 600 years’ birthday of Temple of Heaven (Est.1420) and the final stop of the Growth & Evolution International Jewellery Exhibition. (It also available on: www.dbc.red/)

 

在这个概念下,我们开始了这个项目。我们邀请世界各地的当代首饰艺术家拍摄他们的作品及其创作过程,并剪辑成纪录片。该视频将在2020年北京设计周期间的DBC国际设计师空间的媒体展厅播放展示。

A documentary about contemporary jewellery broadcasts to the public is unprecedented in China. And yet every video we receive is a unique and complete project from all talents. It puts a lot of pressure on me as the producer to bring all them together in a single film. 

向公众放映一部关于当代艺术首饰的纪录片,这在中国是前所未有的。我们收到的每一个视频都是来自国际当代艺术首饰界出色人才的独一无二的高完成度的作品。作为制片人,要把所有这些元素都集中在一部影片里,这给了我很大的压力。

 

Instead of just showcasing the work itself I concentrate on revealing the practicing process from the very beginning. I hope it can make a better understanding of what is contemporary art jewellery for our audiences. I also invite a young music talent(Chuan Luo) create this water like music for this project.

我着力于从作品最初的形态揭示它的创作过程,而不仅仅是展示作品本身。我希望这部纪录片能让我们的观众更好地了解什么是当代艺术首饰。为此,我还邀请了一位年轻的音乐天才(Chuan Luo)为这个项目创作了这首行云流水般的配乐。

 

Every project starts from somewhere. It may be meandering in an anonymous alley or a rowing experience along the river delta. From tides to trees, from rock to metal, artists extract fragments of memory and cutting into the new jewels to be seen.

每一件作品都来自一个灵感的火花。它可能迸发于在一条无名小巷中漫步时,或者是在三角洲划船时。从潮汐到树木,从岩石到金属,艺术家们提取记忆的碎片,切割成富有新意的首饰供人欣赏。

 

There are pearls made from books, rocks created by chemistry formula, necklaces comprehend with the human body, they are voices from every artist. Their voices for the hope and future.

有由书本制成的珍珠,由化学公式合成的石头,由模拟的人体部件组成的项链,这些都是来自艺术家们的声音,表达了他们对未来的期待。

“The theme ‘Hope & Future’ is as old as humanity. It immediately reminded me of Pandora’s box, her curiosity let disasters escape and spread over the earth, but hope remains in the box. My brooch grew in my hands, branching gently outward and billowing back in, curious about the future of the world.”

“ ‘希望与未来’的主题和人类历史一样古老。这让我立刻想到了潘多拉的盒子,她的好奇心使灾难在地球上肆虐,但盒子里还藏着希望。我的胸针在我的手中长大,轻轻地向外分支,然后又向内翻腾,对世界的未来充满好奇。”

“Hope” — Maja Houtman

 

“ ‘Anattata’ means everything is non-existent, like the two sides of the Möbius strip, but there actually is no separation; ‘hope’ and ‘future’ are not distinct and together form our beings.”

“ ‘Anattata’是‘不存在’的意思,就像莫比乌斯环的两边一样,但实际上并没有分离;‘希望’和‘未来’并不是泾渭分明的,它们共同构成了我们的存在。”

“ The reason I’m in love with contemporary art jewellery is that it’s jewellery but also more than just jewellery. A small decoration on the body but contain strong power, special meaning and unique story. ”

“ 我喜欢当代艺术首饰的原因在于,作为首饰,它不仅仅是装饰品。一件佩戴在身上的当代艺术首饰蕴含着强大的力量、特殊的意义和独特的故事。”

 

“The use of transformed PET (polyethylene terephthalate) into jewelry pieces is an attempt to reflect on current values concerning environmental care and the consequent quality of life.”

“ 我使用回收再造的PET制作首饰,是出于‘对当前的环境保护就是在提升未来的生活质量’的观点的反思与尝试。

“For me, making contemporary jewelry is like a small liberation, it is taking out all those demons that one carries inside, because throughout our experiences, because life is not wonderful, life really is a feeling, a walk, you can feel life , feel death, feel joy, sadness, generate inner peace, for me it is a way to get those emotions or energy and transform it into forms of contemporary jewelry pieces.”

“ 对我来说,制作当代首饰的过程就像一次自我释放,放出人类本性中隐藏的小恶魔。因为我们经历的日常生活并不完美,人生就是一场体验,一趟旅程,我们在这之中感悟生命,感悟死亡,感受喜怒哀乐,最后获得内心的平静。对我来说,制作当代首饰就是一个将这些情感与能量物化的过程。”

 

—— Juanjo Garcia Martin

“Invented place” — Juanjo García Martín

 

“I try to manage the language of emptiness and fullness to put my pieces in tension and poise, to explore the relationship between object and scale. Working with scale, I adapt tectonic to human anatomy.”

“ 我试图驾驭虚与实的语言,让我的作品保持紧张与平衡,探索物体与比例之间的关系。我专注于研究作品的尺度,使其构造适应人体结构。”

“I use Soil as an Innovative Biomaterial to Create Neckpiece Inspiration from Thai Headdress.”

“我将土壤作为一种创新的生物材料,从泰式头饰中获得灵感,创作项链。”

 

——Khajornsak Nakpan

“Chada Din” — Khajornsak Nakpan

 

“I design my jewelry as sculptures without ever losing sight of the fact that they must have a connection with the body and that the person must move and live with them.”

“我以雕塑的形式设计我的首饰,我自始至终坚持首饰必须与身体具有密切的联系,必须在日常生活中可佩戴。”

——Isabelle Carpentier

“This work is about self-love and self-acceptance. It’s a small research about being a human, an effort to accept and embrace it with all the vulnerability, fragility and imperfection.”

“这个作品是关于自爱和自我接受的。这是一个关于人性的小研究,努力去接受和拥抱人性的脆弱、脆弱和不完美。”

——Into Niilo

“Currents, featuring kinetic ring” — Into Niilo
