Past - present - future

Exhibition at Bury Art Museum 

from the 17th February – 18th May 2024.

Project lead and curated by @markmcleishstudio assisted by @lynne_speake

‘How can jewellery challenge and contribute to the language of sustainability?’
‘What are the conversations about sustainably triggered by the jewels we make?’
‘Where are the questions in our practice about sustainability? And how do they have a connected relationship with the making, methods and materials we use?’ Words credit: Mark Mcleish

The ambition for the exhibition is to showcase a holistic and identified concern for sustainability within the field of art jewellery. This will be evident with works that demonstrate sustainable action within making and material.

3 works are exhibited from each of the 19 selected Precious members, one each for the categories Past, Present and Future.

Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre
Moss Street, Bury

Tuesday to Saturday: 10:00 - 17:00


The space between

The space between - Precious Collective

'The space between conjures questions of locating, where or what is it? 
Somewhere in a separation the betweenness wishes to be noticed, a point or state to suggest or identify?  
A position of time for the unnoticed given ownership by the jewel'.

An infinite path, 40 years of democracy

Within the framework of the 40 years of Democracy in Argentina, Joyeros Argentinos presents An infinite path, the art jewelry exhibition that on this topic is on display until October 29 at the Sarmiento Historical Museum (Buenos Aires).

For the exhibition Joyeros Argentinos invited artists from all over Argentina to be part of the story of our democracy and the proposal of possible paths, participating in “An infinite path.” The proposal was that from a photograph that for the artist was significant in addressing the 40 years of democracy, they would make a piece of jewelry.

Stuttering in Reserve / La brújula arte en tránsito

BETTER THAN WINE: The eye is a new PALATE.

The proposal accounts for the quality of the exploration in forms, materials and poetic flight, a condition that makes each piece a note that stimulates an attentive look that displays reflection and as a whole, the validity of a forceful art to savor. with delight. The look that is intervened, accused, forced (indoctrinated) here has a great opportunity to be free, to explore, to recognize, perhaps to remember and without a doubt to imagine in the same way when the senses come into contact with terrestrial foods, some flavor, philosophy and who knows, drunkenness.

This exhibition opens on April 28 at 6:00 p.m. in the “Una página blanco” gallery, located at Calle Salinas 12, El Carmen neighborhood, in the historic center of the city of Valencia.

'Facettes, un regard sur le bijou céramique'

From April 15 to June 18, 2023, Terre et Terres offers an exceptional exhibition on ceramic jewelery at the Center Céramique Contemporaine de Giroussens.

25 creators, jewelers, ceramicists, visual artists, designers from all over the world, question the approach of ceramic jewelery in the melting pot of contemporary art through a hundred powerful works.

Some choose fragile and resistant porcelain, sometimes clinically white, others bring pieces “already there”, fragmentary plates, others prefer the precious clay of the origins.

Thus, the ceramic jewel builds its identity in a complex dialogue between different materials that play with the very definition of the jewel.

It is undoubtedly its supposed or projected fragility that has favored its reappearance... as if to remind us that we must take care of our relationship with the earth, our history, ourselves and the Other.

61st Annual International Exhibition of Ceramic Art / CAAC

2nd Honorable Mention in the "Other Disciplines in Dialogue with Ceramics" category: Paula Isola, Words surround us, overwhelm us, mark us.

The words that surround us, spoken and written, shape us as people, leave a mark on our skin. That is why I am passionate about working with the words of others. In some way, what was said is transformed and said again in another materiality and voice. For this work I used phrases from “Dollhouse” by Enrique Ibsen (Sepan quantos Collection, Editorial Porrúa), a Norwegian playwright, a play that was written in 1879 and marks a milestone in modern theater and in the development of feminism.

Babbling of a prelude

“I want to say that I have to change my approach, I have to look at the world with another perspective, another logic, other methods of knowledge and verification. The images of lightness that I seek must not be dissolved like dreams by the reality of the present and the future...” (SIX PROPOSALS FOR THE NEXT MILLENNIUM; Italo Calvino).

In these times when everything is discarded almost instantly, I choose to work with objects that I find and with materials of my own harvest, such as kombucha. Many years ago I accepted my impulse to save everything that seems reusable to me: pieces of wood, old objects that others discard, watches that do not work, seeds, stones that I collect on each trip.
There, among those sleeping treasures, my work begins. Paula Isola

Exhibition hall of Bazar El Chincol, Valparaíso, Chile.

Until September 30, 2022


Gabinete de curiosidades / Colectivo Fwiya e invitados

Antes no había museos, había cuartos de maravillas donde los coleccionistas guardaban objetos raros, extraños, que generaban curiosidad, interés inusual, miles de interrogantes a quien tuviera la oportunidad de tenerlos frente a sí: saber dónde, por qué, a quién, cómo y cuándo aquello tan lejano, nunca visto y jamás imaginado, podía ser cotidiano, habitual.

Los gabinetes de curiosidades, lejos de pretender la conservación de un pasado inmóvil, fueron espacios que facilitaron investigación científica y creación artística, es decir, movimiento, es decir, futuro.

En una época en la que cualquier pregunta se resuelve con un click, en la que los misterios y mundos fantásticos están, con suerte, reservados a la niñez, en la que la nos hemos vuelto perezosos para la pregunta y la profundidad quedándonos en la superficie, esta exposición busca despertar en quien se acerque ganas de saber más, provocarle preguntas, curiosidad.

Exposición del colectivo Fwiya e invitados de Argentina y Chile en el Museo de la Historia del Traje, en el marco de la III Bienal Latinoamericana de joyería contemporánea 2021-22.

Desde el 18 de marzo al 30 de abril, Chile 832 - CABA, Argentina


What Is Left Unsaid

By naming we make visible the unseen. In our world, here, now, close to us and beyond our grasp, a myriad of unspeakable things happens. Worrisome, pleasurable, shameful, enslaving, freeing, painful, and vibrant things that finally do not allow us to be indifferent. This is the inspiration for our current work. Collectively and individually we put everything on display, from gut reactions to well thought out responses to these sometimes nameless, often unmentionable details of our existence.

Exhibition by the Caracú group at UadeArt, within the framework of the III Latin American Biennial of Contemporary Jewelry 2021.

From September 3 to October 25, Independencia 1127 - CABA, Argentina


Jewelry and Anatomy

Discomfort is an acquired taste, as is much contemporary jewelry. But feeling uncomfortable ignites self-consciousness and elicits a state of heightened alert. (...) And sometimes being uneasy in the world is the only way to achieve comfort with one’s own skin.

Fabulaciones / Colectivo Fwiya e invitados

Fábulas, fabulaciones, fabuladores. Realidad o invención? Nos rodean desde pequeños en forma de cuentos, lejanas historias familiares que crecen y mutan de boca en boca, fábulas que vienen por los caminos dejando sus huellas en nuestro corazón. Son parte de nuestra vida y somos parte de ellas. Donde está el límite? Fábulas de los tiempos antiguos, fábulas familiares y otras personalísimas, fantasías que enriquecen nuestro vivir a la par de otras que nos atormentan y se vuelven oscuras como sombras. Invenciones para entender, para sobrevivir, para enloquecer.
He aquí nuestras fabulaciones de autor.
