Comunicato stampa

La mostra, organizzata con il patrocinio del Comune di Verona ed il contributo dell’azienda agricola Monte del Frà di Custoza (VR), intende presentare ad un vasto pubblico ornamenti per il corpo che si distinguono non per un ovvio valore economico ma per la loro capacità di rivolgersi ad antri spesso dimenticati della mente e del cuore. L’osservatore non è un fruitore passivo ma è chiamato ad interloquire ed ad osservare con occhio attento e critico per poter meglio esplorare questi nuovi paesaggi

Protagonista indiscusso è il tessuto colto nei suoi vari aspetti: all’origine in forma di baco da seta, come filo lavorato a maglia o all’uncinetto, come stoffa arrotolata, cucita con la carta e mischiata sia a metalli non preziosi che resine. Bracciali, collane, orecchini, spille sono il sapiente frutto di riscoperte abilità artigianali, di un’accesa vocazione per la sperimentazione e della volontà di superare soluzioni estetiche ormai scontate per investigare nuovi orizzonti. Da queste sincere vocazioni nascono le numerose opere (più di ottantacinque) degli artisti-orafi: Luis Acosta, Valentina Caprini, Trinidad Contreras, Lyn Cooke, Nunzia De Feo, Joanne Haywood, Grace Hamilton, Alejandra Koreck, Yu-Ping Lin, Maria Rosa Mongelli, Mabel Pena, Sabina Tiemroth, Stella Valencia Iragorri, LizWillis.
Queste preziose manipolazioni della stoffa testimoniano il proprio debito con le avanguardie moderne che non solo hanno trasformato un oggetto comune in opera di arte (si pensi a Duchamp) ma hanno saputo gettare i semi affinché materiali poveri, come ad esempio un pezzo di legno, potessero perdere la loro stessa fisicità per diventare parte integrante dell’opera d’arte stessa (si vedano Picasso e Mirò). Inoltre sembrano proseguire le coraggiose sfide lanciate dai “precursori” del gioiello contemporaneo: Lalique e Calder. Il primo agli inizi del ‘900 aveva sfidato i suoi contemporanei con l’introduzione di pietre semi-preziose e sensuali smalti al posto degli onnipresenti diamanti ed il conseguente apprezzamento dell’importanza del colore, il secondo negli anni ’30 aveva saputo “nobilitare” l’ottone, un materiale fino ad allora decisamente trascurato e proporre squisite interpretazioni ispirate ad un gusto africano e tribale, capaci anche di rivalutare tale materiale. Inoltre grazie alle caratteristiche intrinseche del tessuto precedono i tempi e compiono un passò in più: diventano decisamente tattili ed estremamente confortevoli da indossare. Spingono il visitatore a porsi la domanda: <> ed a valutare le risposte quasi immediate: << Arte per il corpo (wearable art), una coraggiosa sfida verso gli aspetti meramente economici, una esperienza estetica, emotiva ed intellettuale oppure quasi un oggetto-scultura con il quale interagire grazie alla sua docilità e plasmabilità>>. La mostra non fornisce una linea di pensiero, invita lo spettatore non sbadato a riflettere.
LE/I PARTECIPANTI: Accanto alle creazioni della guest star, Luis Acosta, le cui opere sono conservate in rilevanti collezioni pubbliche e private si raccolgono le opere di tredici artiste orafe diverse per origine (Argentina, Costa Rica, Italia, Irlanda, Olanda, Regno Unito, Spagna, Taiwan) e per formazione (svariate le scuole o le università di provenienza: Alchimia, Birmigham University, Buenos Aires University, Central Saint Martins, Escola Massana, Gerrit Rietveld Academy, London Metropolitan, Ming Chuan University). Degne di nota: Trinidad Contreras, menzionata al premio Cominelli nel 2011, Joanne Haywood, apprezzata scrittrice di libri sul gioiello tessile, Alejandra Koreck insieme a Sabina Tiemroth, entrambe selezionate per Smuck 2013, Mabel Pena menzionata alla Bienal de Artesanìas de Buenos Aire 2011” ed infine Yu-Ping Lin che nel 2012 è stata premiata con il Best Fashion Accessory Award alla British Craft Trade FAIR. Uniche due Veronesi, per adozione e per nascita, le artiste-orafe emergenti Nunzia De Feo e Valentina Caprini.

Work Statement

Lost and remembered
Imagined or tangible
Travelled object,
enduring time and wear
The single petal turned stubbornly red,
the rest are uniformly yellow

I have vast studies and experience in arts, such as painting, ceramics and jewelry. While living in Colombia, I first began and developed my art studies in the Escuela de Bellas Artes de Cali. When I moved to Costa Rica, I continued with the expansion of my painting expertise by attending diverse classes and by participating in relevant international individual and collective painting expositions. They took place in New York City, Washington D.C., Valparaíso, Chile, Habana, Cuba and Ecuador. Meanwhile, I began the jewelry experience at Studio Metallo for over 5 years and am currently an active member of the independent group POR QUE NO?.
