“Inferno”, artist Amira Jalet will show us her creative process with sculpture
Color Triciclo gallery will be hosting artist Amira Jalet in a Live Art Night during OFF JOYA 2016, VERSUS Exhibition.
Barcelona, September 7th, 2016 – The idea of creating something in movement came up about one year ago in a middle of the afternoon when artist-jewelry designer Amira Jalet met gallery managers, Costanza Nannoni and Adele Giuntini at Color Triciclo. In a short time they connected to each other and decided to work together. The first exhibit inspiration was the Amira’s wish of connecting her two creative impulses, Jewelry and Sculpture. In her art process they are not separate: the only difference is about dimension. The Live Art Night came up by this topic: the wish of sharing opinions about the division among the arts and considering them as a unity, as different aspects of the same person.
On October 6th from 7.00 pm, Amira Jalet will create a Live Sculpture about Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, into the gallery.
She will use the same topics and materials of her latest jewels, that will be presented in the Santa Monica Arts Centre to the Joya Art Jewellery Fair 2016.
By sculpture, Amira show teach us the experimental process of charcoal’s use, its many possibilities and the technique of hardening that she employs to ensure the preservation of the art works over time.
The artist always takes care of studying different and unusual materials to create jewelry’s pieces: this year she has chosen charcoal in relation to Dante’s Inferno.
As Amira says: “Inferno” is something that rises from ashes… it defends the bowels of the strength , the rebirth of what we almost lost, the last roar of a material as if all that remains were ruin. It dresses up with transformation that almost completely consumed from its inner part and rises as an immortal masterpiece thanks to an explosion of magnificent feature.
Adele and Costanza has the opportunity of coming back to their original idea: Jewelry is not a separate world, but an art form conceived as if it were. Every piece – a jewel, a sculpture or a painting – comes up to express a different point of view, a stimulus, a sensation. Its quality is in the creative process. Before a sensation becomes something else, the form makes and remakes itself before the creator can see it as clear as he feels. It comes up and gets lost. It has to survive the anxiety of questions and many possibilities in an hard experimentation process, in fear of not being able to get it. Without this process, this piece can’t see the light.
The event curate by both creative Italian artists, will take place at Color Triciclo studio/gallery during the VERSUS art jewelry exhibition, which is part of the OFF JOYA 2016. The idea of the coexistence of both events arose because they sharing the same concept: VERSUS as a “face to face” opportunity.
During the live performance of Inferno, Adele and Costanza will create an art installation face to face with the Amira’s work, working together on the same topic but every artist with her own creative process.
The Dante’s Inferno: a very clear and well-defined trip. A succession of changing images. Solemn scenarios full of details, into of them a lot of sensations are moving.
Each minimum event is told through the eyes of a man, who doing a trip and introduce us with him. Everyone could live the same journey. To enter into an almost obligatory route, where to know the intimate of collective fears and can come back to see the stars
The collaboration with Amira is an invitation “with the doors open” to all the people that want to participate actively during the Live Art Night, to create something with us. The studio/gallery offers the necessary materials. With one of two presuppositions, the charcoal’s use or Dante’s Inferno, persons wishing to come, just should let themselves be guided and enjoy the feeling of the night.
