Ou Jiun You-Contemporary jewellery

Ou, Jiun-You is a Taiwanese metal and contemporary jewellery artist who is currently based in Taiwan. In different to most of the artists, she has a bachelor’s degree in political science. However, in the summer of 2008, she decided to begin her professional jewellery making training in a government organization, and then followed several masters in a personal studio as an apprentice to the end of 2012. 

Her passion about art derives from her life history. For many years, suffering from scoliosis and undergoing a corrective operation bring so much pain and anxieties, but this is exactly why she cares about the discriminations of normal and abnormal, and also the boundaries about ineffective and effective. Thus, her concerns reflected in her work often refer to a dual system, conflicts in forms and materials.”

"In this series, I use sheet units that having a delicate texture to convey some hint of organisms. This hint may be complete or slightly damaged, presenting a kind of extract derived from the nature among those lush, soggy and limp sheet aggregations. Some seemingly uncoordinated strip, sheet or linear structures have been added to fix and insert into the aggregations, as well as been given a role of being responsible for the wearing function.

In such a construct, extremely thin and fine materials are intentionally used, and the white color due to the pickling is retained, for the state of these materials perfectly reflecting the frailty with a tendency of being evanescent. Such uncertainty creates a distance between this series of works and the wearers, as well as between these works and the viewers. That is, there still exists a kind of anxiety and alienation even the attraction is obvious.

To the end,
whether it had been effective or ineffective, it has become a faint occurrence, continuing to stir in different degrees”

Individual Mythologies, object, 2011-2013
brass, copper
sinking, hand fabricated, patina

In artist’s words:

"My project is inspired by “bricolage” defined by Claude Lévi-Strauss. In the concept of “bricolage”, compared to the people who have specific techniques, “bricoleurs” deal with diverse problems with existing tools available in hand, which means they have limited resources that could be dominated. Besides, this is also the way of how mythology expresses itself in different civilizations.

New materials and techniques always provide us with more possibility in creation. However, on the other hand, this convenience also makes us easy to overlook those things that we have already possessed, and even causes some kind of anxiety that makes us seek outwards constantly. After repeatedly trying a lot of new materials and techniques, I have deliberately made myself work in limited circumstances—using waste materials and most basic equipment.

By hammering and extending the waste materials, I obtain the maximum size that I can utilize. Then I use ordinary objects in life as anvils (for example, conducting the sinking process in a wooden bowl) and shape them with bare hands. Therefore, these materials become individual elements. Then, I seek the correlations among them, and combine them together by soldering. Because of the substitutable relationships that the elements have among themselves, the change of one element will automatically affect the combination relationships with all the other elements. Thus, naturally, there exists a kind of correlation among these finished objects. Moreover, this process has a certain raw and organic quality; through the physics- and chemistry-based coloring process, these objects present a quiet yet astir temperament at the same time, as if implying a primordial possibility of life.

Through such a process of poetic labor, I have discovered a new kind of perception of myself and production results that have never been achieved when I was working at a rational level. In this era with extrinsic information galloping like thousands of steeds and individuals practically have no choice to be forced to accept, I try to find and construct my own mythology in this way.

I love her approach.
