Ornamentum celebrates 10 years exhibiting at Design/ Miami with a large presentation of Ted Noten together with major works by David Bielander, Jaydan Moore and Ruudt Peters… and select works of international contemporary jewelry.
December 6 - 10
Collectors Preview Tuesday December 5
Remembering back to December 2008… Ornamentum created a stir debuting as the first jewelry (and related object) gallery to exhibit at the Design/ Miami fair, presenting a breathtaking exhibition of Ted Noten’s acrylic handbag sculptures and jewelry.
Ten years later, Noten will once again capture attention with a large body of work on exhibition, a selection of new and older works out of the artist’s collection- a collection spanning almost 30 years, from his Iconic acrylic designs to lesser known jewels in silver and gold.
Other major attractions of the exhibition:
Awarded the Grand Prix Suisse Design Prize during the Basel Switzerland Design fair last June, Bielander stuns again with a new Rose sculpture, created specifically for the fair. Each flower is a hand-made rack containing a useable dinner set. The stems grow gracefully from the base as if swaying in a light summer breeze.
The highly- collected American jeweler John Iversen has finished two new bracelets from his Crackle series. Monotone in white silver and the darker white gold, the linear drawings and subtle shapes within the forms are refined, the craftsmanship meticulous and the comfortable wearability is perfect.
Afke Golsteijn and Floris Bakker, the Dutch duo working under the name Idiots, create mesmorizing taxidermy works using antique taxidermy and scrap from the meat industry. The Grey Goose necklace continues on their contemporary victorian trajectory of dark oppulence with beadwork laying softly behind the neck.
A weighty gold necklace from 1988 (edition of up to 5 pieces) created by the artist pressing his fingerprint into soft wax then cast in 18k, will be exhibited among other works from the past and present by the seminal German artist Gerd Rothmann.
Autumn Dots, 2017 is the title of Tolvanen’s newest stunner of silver, lavender wood and paint.
Selected works by Aaron Decker, Iris Eichenberg, Ute Eitzenhöfer, Katrin Feulner, Jantje Fleischhut, Rebekah Frank, Karl Fritsch, Rebecca Hannon, Hanna Hedman, Karin Johansson, Jiro Kamata, Shelly Norton, Annelies Planteydt, Todd Pownell, Mary Preston, Jacqueline Ryan, Philip Sajet, Giovanni Sicuro, Dorothee Striffler, Terhi Tolvanen, Petra Zimmermann and more.
Founded in 2002, Ornamentum Gallery exhibits a dynamic collection of contemporary jewelry as well as related objects and artworks. Ornamentum hosts numerous exhibitions yearly in a large tin-ceilinged exhibition space where featured artists display their work in conceptual installations.
Ornamentum is well established as a major force for introducing this exciting medium to new international audiences, working to help build many of the world’s most significant public and private collections of contemporary jewelry and playing a pivotal role in numerous acquisitions of important works by key museums. Whether based in material experimentation, conceptual content or a combination of both, the work exhibited by Ornamentum must challenge conventions and be absolutely individual in content and form.
