Connecting Experiences and Jewellery Design

3-days workshop with Yuka Oyama

April 26-28 2024
Duration: 21 hours

Certain personal belongings build strong emotional attachments with their owners for various reasons. They may serve as material evidence that keeps special memories from fading. They may represent personal relationships of great significance to someone. They may also stand in for absent individuals and places. Other items can become essential to individuals due to frequent use, multiple functionalities or prolonged ownerships. Interestingly enough, the emotional value of this sort of objects surpasses by far their monetary worth.

In this workshop, a set of methods will be introduced to access memories embedded in special personal belongings, including jewelry, and explore the adventures they can trigger. The purpose is to examine, from the viewpoint of creators, how we can design jewelry pieces that serve as tangible keepers of memories.

Yuka Oyama’s artistic practice incorporates sculpture, jewellery, public interventions, and performances. Her life-sized, wearable sculptures function as material provocations that explore the disconnections often felt in contemporary life: eroded sense of belonging. Everyday objects are used to upset these disconnections, facilitating our ability to act beyond set conventions. Her object-human hybrids—objectified humans and personified objects—are often worn in public, in theatrical settings to encourage participants to feel more imaginative and stronger connections to other persons. Since 2019, Yuka leads MA Jewellery Art program at University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Yuka’s artworks have been exhibited at numerous international galleries, museums and prominent biennales in the fields of contemporary art and contemporary art jewellery. Recent group exhibitions include: Mart Herford Museum; The Dowse Art Museum, Wellington; Musee d’Art modern de la Ville de Paris, Paris; Easy!Upstream Gallery, Munich; Pratt Manhattan Gallery, New York; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Zentrum für Medien und Technologie, Karlsruhe; Pinakothek der Moderne, Oslo Kunstforenning, Oslo; the SPACES Gallery, Cleveland; Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial, Niigata.
