@carambolage

Pleased to communicate the presence of the little figures on the “Traverso” exhibition wall at the cabaret theatre Carambolage in Bolzano during December and January.

Especially for the theatre I imagined a new little character and experimented with coloured resin.

Until the end of January at the cabaret theatre Carambolage

Young Collectible at Camp Design Gallery

Pleased to be part of
.
Young Collectible at Camp Design Gallery, a selection of pieces by Beatrice Bianco and Valentina Lucio.
Young Collectible is the result of a parallel research by the gallery owners focused on the development and support of young collectors: a free approach with the possibility of scouting new aesthetics, exploring a more intimate design dimension with sculptural and functional works on a small scale, self-produced by contemporary artists and designers.

Human Zone

curated by Annalisa Rosso

presentation on Thursday June 28th 2018, from 6.30 pm
AMW Architettura
via Assarotti 31 / A, Genoa

Architecture deals with the organization of space, small or large, depending on the people it is destined for, turning the system upside down becomes an interesting exercise. A question of scale. Identifying the human body as the maximum surface of intervention, geographical horizon to design on, responds to the contemporary need to focus on the idea of the individual. Territory to explore and redesign intelligently.

The jewels by Eigenart, unique pieces handcrafted by Valentina Romen, have an architectural vocation. Lines, volumes, light, space management in relation with the context are the founding elements of different collections, which develop through a research that touches contemporary art and design to always arrive, with great consistency, on the development of architectural forms. The new production, presented in the offices of AMW Architettura, wonders about the issue of borders. Ideal and fixed maps applied to the movement of the body in the form of rings, bracelets, necklaces. Drawings that make think of urbanism, the walls of a fortress, the boundaries traced by the human willpower, forcing the continuity of the terrestrial globe. Small bronze monuments with which to mark your personal landscape.

The Harvard Spectral Classification Scheme, the modern stellar spectral classifications scheme, was created at the beginning of the last century. The classification sequence groups the celestial bodies in a series of capital letters (O, B, A, F, G, K, M) and in order of decreasing temperatures, from the hottest to the coolest. To remember this scheme scientists suggested a mnemonic phrase “Oh Be A Fine Girl, Kiss Me!”

Celestial bodies have always been an object of observation and inspiration for mystics, scientists, travellers, artists and poets. They can be nearby and familiar, or mysterious, totally unknown. Ideally, they generate a symbolic connection between the individual and everything that is, often full of completely personal meanings. For this reason they are collected, exposed, adored and interpreted.

LOVE•&•HATE discordance in contemporary jewelry

There is a thin line between love and hate.
Science proves how these two feelings activate the same nervous circuits of our brain, though hate keeps traces of judgment and rationality. Emotions that appear to be polar opposites, in reality are intimately connected in the human brain. This could explain why both can lead to similar acts of extreme behaviour – evil or heroic – often irrational.

The exhibition project LOVE•&•HATE follows the curiosity for a match or a collision of different materials, discordant forms and ventured combinations. Attraction or repulsion can be behind a specific attention to a formal research, able to find an unexpected balance among elements sometimes very dissimilar, to define new aesthetics, and become a crossroad of strong emotions.

Folk Dances.

During the “Bolzano Dance Festival 2015”, the shop windows of the Atelier Kompatscher in Bolzano will host the latest collection designed by Valentina Romen: Folk Dances. Small wearable sculptures in bronze, gold and silver.  Unique pieces created by hand. Curvy bodies capturing the act of movement evoked by music.

The jewels of the collection have a stylized design, in line with the most contemporary forms of artistic expression. Characters dancing as a couple represent the traditional Breton folk dance and can be worn both embraced to one another or alone.  Valentina’s jewellery should be worn freely to discover how its movement naturally flows in harmony with one’s body.

Atelier Kompatscher via Dr. Josef Streiter 2, Bolzano, Italy, from July 9 to 18.
