We are Astonish. An international collective of six female makers who met in the misty, magical valley of Idar-Oberstein. Our passion for making is driving us. We found each other to spread and expose our ideas of jewellery and adornment. During the last five years, we realised how enriching our diversity is and how much we inspire each other.

Astonish is travelling and exhibiting internationally at venues such as the Jewellery Hotspot Schmuck in Munich, Melting Point in Valencia, Spain or Jewellery Silver Festival in Legnica, Poland.

We offer you the possibility to be our guest and exhibit with us at SCHMUCK Munich 2020. You will get the opportunity to take part in this vibrant event and you have the chance to show your work at the hotspot during SCHMUCK Munich. So be our guest, show us your BLING and send us your GEM, which expresses a festive spirit.

On June 15, 2020, the Chinese mythology-themed contemporary jewelry exhibition will be open.
Each exhibitor shall design and make jewelry works according to the theme. 

The reason why Greek mythology enjoys permanent charm lies in that it has been made rich and beautiful by the processing and polishing of generations of great European literati and artists. Similarly, Chinese mythology, which was wild and pristine in the primitive society, has been handed down and gone through constant changes with the changes of social nature. […]
However, Chinese mythology seems to have hit a bottleneck in modern times. In my humble opinion, one reason is that it is ignored by the rapid development of economy and technology, and another is that mere retelling of the gods’ and monsters’ images in ancient books or the stories themselves is just a formality which can hardly impress people. […]
Therefore, reflecting on our field, I believe that if we present Chinese mythology with the contemporary jewelry language, and dominate the development of Chinese mythology with our spirit and will, the new mythology created will definitely affect the next civilization.


Deadline: 30.04.2020

Osana Taidekeskus Idän ja Kaakon taidelainaamon markkinointia elvytämme Kuukauden taiteilija -perinteen. Ideana on, että kirjastolla olisi esillä yksi taidelainaamon, Etelä-Karjalan taiteilijaseuran tai Korutaideyhdistyksen jäsentaiteilija. Esillä olisi aina yksi (tai useampi) taideteos kerrallaan, joka vaihtuu kuukauden välein.

Teoksen esityspaikka on yläkerrassa (palvelutiskin kerros), heti pääportaiden vasemmalla puolella. Toinen mahdollinen paikka ovat suuret nelilokeroiset lasivitriinit pohjakerroksessa, kirjaston takauloskäynnin vieressä. Yläkertaan mahtuu pääsääntöisesti yksi teos kerrallaan maalaustelineeseen tai muuhun vastaavaan. Kolmiulotteisille teoksille voisi tulla kysymykseen pieni pöytä tai muu taso (tässä tapauksessa teosten ei kannata olla kovin pieniä tai helposti mukaan lähteviä) Alakerran suuriin vitriineihin mahtuu useampi teos kerralla, mutta vitriinien varaustilanne täytyy tarkistaa etukäteen.

Jos kiinnostuit ja haluaisit esittää teoksiasi kirjastolla, laita sähköpostia osoitteeseen info.taidelainaamo@gmail.com. Liitä mukaan viestiin lyhyt kuvaus minkätyyppinen teos tulisi esille ja mitä kuukautta toivoisit. Voit myös toivoa esityspaikkaa. Kuukausia voi toivoa marraskuusta 2019 alkaen.

Kuu vaihtuu hyvin pikaisesti, joten ensimmäisen kuukauden aloitus voi myös alkaa kesken kuukautta. Tarkoitus ei ole sopia mitään “näyttelyaikoja” vaan taiteilija hoitaa itse teoksen/teosten viennin ja noudon oman kuukautensa aikana kirjaston ollessa avoinna. Teostietolapun saa taidekeskus Idästä, kunhan etukäteen ilmoittaa teostiedot.

Loppusyksyn terveisin,

Etelä-Karjalan taiteilijaseuran hallitus
