JUST ONE MORE
In august 2013 Ubi Gallery presented the results of the first Asian graduation competition for jewellery students. In JUST ONE MORE we will see the results of a year hard work of the winners Sungho Cho (Korea - München) and He Jing (China - Amsterdam). In their new collection they both use found objects. The work of Åsa Elmstam (Sweden – worked in Japan) is a nice addition to the exhibition with her different perspective on the theme of reuse in jewellery. With the work of these three young artists, we can present you a perfect mix of Chinese, Korean, Japenese, Swedish, Dutch, German influences in jewellery.
Sungho Cho will be in the gallery during the opening of the exhibition on Saturday Oct 25th and will give a presentation about his collection, from 14:30 onwards.
A part of the Shanghai Creative Industries Week at the Shanghai Exhibition Center is dedicated to a jewellery exhibition. Attached to the program is a day full of lectures, by Ezra Satok-Wolman, Evan Larson-Voltz, Machtelt Schelling.
precious particles and gruesome grit in applied arts
Amid the events taking place in Dashilar during Beijing Design Week, Ubi Gallery’s minimalist and stylish interior provides a calm sanctuary. This year, the gallery presents DUST INCLUDED, a thought-provoking exhibit of contemporary jewellery, ceramics and lifestyle goods, showcasing the work of 13 artists connected to China and The Netherlands.
DUST INCLUDED explores the theme of dust and pollution in Beijing and other megacities. Visitors are confronted by Joke Schole’s angry bear, who proclaims, ‘Clean up your own mess’. Other artists such as Liang Li treat dust as a byproduct of human failure, incorporating it into her work as an ‘Award for Bad Conduct’. Hortense de La Jonquière’s masterpiece—a cabinet constructed of Beijing dust—shows how dust captures memories, reminders of things past. Prominent milliner Elisabeth Koch adopts “crust” material used in environmental cleanup to create hats intended to deflect dust on a daily basis. The Dutch design collective of Eva de Laat, ByBorre and the University of Eindhoven propose futurist clothing to shield those living in polluted urban environments. Visitors will also find limited edition collector’s items and affordable gifts commissioned for the exhibit, as well as a portion of Ubi Gallery’s permanent collection.
Established in 2012, Ubi Gallery is a leading center for cultural and artistic exchange for established designers and rising Chinese talents in contemporary jewellery and ceramic design.

Ubi Gallery received more than 50 applicants for their Asian jewellery graduation exhibition. Juries from Beijing and Germany have selected the 10 most promising students and Ubi Gallery will show their works in the upcoming exhibition.
The names of the selected students are:
Ubi Gallery is happy to present a large group exhibition with 15 different lecturers and professors from the metal and jewellery departments from all over China. These leading figures in jewellery education have their own studios and will share their recent work with you. It might come as no surprise that the variety of the work is great and that they are all role models for the younger generation. Each in their own special way. We see narrative work, more based on a traditional visual language, we see pieces were the wearability was leading, we see installations and more conceptual work. Most of them had followed part of their education abroad or are through their contacts at the university very well aware of the international developments. At the same time everyone developped their own identity and you are invited to look deeper than the surface of cultural variety and experience what these works are about. The leading principle in this exhibition is to share with you the recent work of a selection of the educators in China. For the future generation it is essential to have strong and passionate teachers, who walk the talk by putting in practice what they communicate.
The opening of the exhibition will be June 28th (16:00-18:00). Several artists will be there to give a small presentation to introduce their work to you. They are happy to meet you so feel free to join them.
