Event Description

Neighbourhood lost

Houses seem to have their own life. The inhabitants who change over the course of time are apparently just a temporarily part of their physical state. They are only one historical layer of many others inscribed in the house. At least this is what Melissa Vogley Woods’ latest works suggest. Like in her former works on traditional American quilts she is looking for the hidden histories inside her objects. And once more the houses do not remain objects but become actors in their own right, reflecting a narrative. The versatile revised photograph’s of houses in Franklin, a run down neighbourhood of Columbus, Ohio, are tracing back these narrations, simultaneously manipulating the houses’ present, and looking forward to their future. Here at the latest it becomes clear that the inhabitant’s retreat will not be the end of the story but only the beginning of a new part of the history written by the houses and it’s environment. In front of this background the concern about shrinking cities should be taken as a problem for the people and not for the houses.
Speaking with Italo Calvino Vogley-Woods’ houses can’t be called uninhabited, whether been left before being inhabited or after.

Melissa Vogley Woods lives and works in Columbus/Ohio. She produced the works presented after she returned from Dresden/Germany where she participated in the artist-exchange-program of the partner cities Dresden and Columbus in the fall of 2008.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More
