The Natural Allure of Giorgio Vigna’s Work

Mar
27

The evocative art of Giorgio Vigna is rooted in nature’s metamorphic phenomena. He fluidly interchanges the artistic mediums of sculpture, works on paper and jewellery, inviting us to understand our relationship with the cosmos through engaging our senses. His works trigger our imagination through their textures, sounds and movements, evocating the mystery of our attraction to the natural world. In celebration of Elisabetta Cipriani’s 10 years of collaborations with the world’s leading visual artists, we invite one of the gallery’s first partners, Giorgio Vigna, to discuss his relationship with wearable art. GV: It makes me very happy to know that I am one of the first artists your gallery represented. It has now been ten years! EC: Yes, it all started with our first collaboration. You were there from the beginning. How has this journey together been like for you?

Working together has been important for me because it has always made me feel that I was in good company. It also gave me the opportunity to show some of […]

Paolo Canevari’s Powerful Symbols

Feb
25

“A jewel, a work of art is a presence that reminds us of the importance of emotion, of life, of our values ​​and ideals” Paolo Canevari’s art works are nothing short of academic philosophical essays. The artist fearlessly takes on the burden of human history, dissecting and re-appropriating cross-cultural symbols in an invitation to a collective and honest self-awareness. In response to today’s unstable and divided political climate, Paolo’s first wearable art project asks us to re-evaluate the meaning of power, both historically and in our contemporary globalised society. In our interview, we delve into the mind of this brave thinker. EC: Your Roman She Wolf necklace holds a special place in my gallery’s collection. We both grew up in Rome, where the symbols of bygone empires and their ever-changing heroes are embroidered into the city’s daily life. Your art is created by and against this visual language of power. A recurring theme in your work, and one which you have chosen for your wearable art projects, is animal symbolism. The eagle, the octopus, the beautiful she-wolf – what do these animals mean to you? PC: What fascinates me about the world of symbols and icons is its capacity for change […]

Meet John Moore, the dance master of jewels

Jan

“Nature is untouchable to me. It’s foolish for anyone to try to replicate it or beat it” – John Moore tells us with the humble confidence of an artist who won the prestigious Goldsmith’s Company award in 2016 – the industry’s highest form of recognition. “It’s about paying homage to nature, celebrating it but in a way, which is honest to its construction and to yourself”. John’s ability to create pieces which draw inspiration from the living world yet stay truthful to his unique vision has earned him a cult following among jewellery collectors. The grande dame of wearable art Tuan Lee commissioned his first Verto necklace. Lady Helen Hamlyn, patron of the arts and founder of the The Royal College of Art’s Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, is another energetic supporter of John Moore’s work. Last year’s prominent exhibition of contemporary jewellery, Bijoux Contemporains, Une Passion at Brussel’s BOZAR was followed by a beautiful catalogue; and John’s necklace notably graces the first page. At Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery we could not agree more with all the acclaim that John Moore’s work is receiving. Here, we offer you a glimpse into the magical headspace of this remarkable artist. EC: You mentioned to me […]

Objects of Desire and Bruno Acampora scents

Dec
03

Exhibition opening: Monday 3 December 5.00 – 8.30pm. Elisabetta Cipriani is very pleased to present the two latest collaborations. The She-Wolf, the Eagle and the Octopus are creations by the Italian artist Paolo Canevari made in a limited edition of 5. Together the three objects of art constitute a sophisticated set of zoomorphic silver serving cutlery inspired by three animals which across human history have been associated with symbols of power: the She-Wolf, the Eagle and the Octopus, eyes made of diamonds, rubies and pearls, respectively. Through employing these archetypal images yet using them in a new context, the artist puts their meaning in jeopardy and invites us to reflect on the iconography of power. Ania Guillaume interpreted Bruno Acampora’s luxurious scented candles through sculptural holders Sérénité, inspired by gingko leaves. These will be displayed alongside other renown scents of the perfumery. With the artists interest in nature’s intricate spirituality, she purposefully chose the gingko leaf not only for the folliage’s singular beauty, but mainly for its meaningful symbolism of longevity and wellbeing; qualities deeply rooted in Acampora’s identity and its wonderful aromas. Recollections of the natural world will be augmented by our showcasing of Michele Oka Doner’s Goddess Minaudiere (2007), a sterling silver clutch that in its shape recalls nature in its purest […]

Carrying Memory by Chiharu Shiota | 28 November 2018

Nov

Exhibition Opening: Wednesday, 28 November, 2018, 6:30 – 8:30pm. Elisabetta Cipriani is very pleased to present Carrying Memory, the first wearable art project by performance and poetic installation artist Chiharu Shiota. Through the use of 18kt gold, Chiharu Shiota intricately intertwines and folds threads which gradually expand into the universe, becoming an extension of the body in space. A necklace and a ring that can also be used as a pendant, have been conceived and perceived in the same way as Shiota’s thread installations, in which she integrates, within a web, objects that carry memories of our daily life. For the necklace, Chiharu Shiota chose to create the art piece around a key, a meaningful object related to everyday life. Viewing keys as “familiar and very valuable things that protect important people and spaces in our lives”, the artist invites us to make a profound and treasured connection with the necklace. Within the golden threads, Shiota suspends the contrasting silver key with a powerful, dark and dreamlike potency. The traces left behind by a human life are also conceptually explored in the ring/pendant, which is made entirely of golden webbed threads to symbolise the inside of a human body. These two poetical […]
