Art & Science An exhibition to provoke debate and discussion 31 January — 16 March 2013 Tuesday to Friday 11am to 6pm, Saturdays 11am to 4pm or by appointment press release  ...
Art & Science is an exhibition which intends to question the inter-disciplinary relationship held between Art and Science. The polymathic artworks of this exhibition are conscious aesthetic creations which challenge and question our preconceptions about the Art & Science movement and the relationship between these two disciplines.
Developing the concept of scientific illustration these works instigate creative dialogues between art, science and new technologies to present the viewer with a complex and frequently personal subject. These visual dialogues bring a degree of accessibility to subject matter which often requires higher learning and understanding. However, they are not simply illustrative of scientific matters, but emotive works to challenge and provoke thought.
The redefinition of materials seemingly unrelated to artistic practise to convey a concept is one of the relationships explored by some of the works in Art & Science. Ken + Julia Yonetani propose scientific narratives such as the degradation of nature and food security, through the utilisation of Mildura River salt to replace the conventional constituents such as clay, to cast objects such as Pillar with Fruit Bowl.
Andrew Krasnow too approaches his practise through the manipulation of materials to comment upon social and political issues. His employment of human tissue in his sculptural creations has provoked controversy and repeatedly called into question the ethics of working with bio-tissue and organic matters outside of the scientific community, and their display within a cultural context. Defaced (Bank Note) is a challenging work which will be displayed for the first time in Art & Science at GV Art gallery, London."
"… Love, wealth and sentimentality, humor, wisdom, violence and hope – these are the paradox emotions and things typical of everyday life that Munich-based but Australian born Helen Britton (born 1966) teases out and explores in her jewelry objects. She combines semi-finished products in the jewelry industry and found objects from flea markets with components and structures she makes herself from metal to create something completely new. “I am building in a way a private world that accepts no compromises,” is how Helen Britton herself describes her work. From the outset, the graduate in fine art in Britton draws the jewelry objects. Parallel, independent analyses of her artistic output arise, morph into pictograms, gaining the status of mnemonic symbols."

"Dorry Hsu’s new jewellery series ‘Tao’ has the elegant minimal character of lines. Fascinating forms and creative ways of wearing jewellery challenge viewer’s and wearer’s perception of jewellery. The oriental symbolic characteristics of Dorry’s jewellery differentiate her work to western minimal line jewellery. Dorry’s ‘Tao’ series can be read as a delightful poem on body- delicate in proportion, and fitted as haute couture dress."

Pieter-Jan Pieters' thesis project enables people to make music by tapping their finger.
what's this got to do with jewellery? well perhaps at first not alot, but it is interesting how we engage with ourselves, with our bodies, and how we can do this artistically. Its intriguing to consider what sounds are linked to what movements. and does the experience change how we feel about our bodies? would it make a difference if the device was designed differently?
The visual, how you see things, how you approach them, how you view them from various perspectives, is a common denominator in how we work with contemporary jewellery today. In fact, we (from our discipline) are mostly ...
