    Title: Still Life Exhibit Design & Concept


    Client: Trespa Design Centre NY


    An Exhibit of Designed Objects by Alissia Melka-Teichroew & Photography by Lisa Klappe

    During 2010's November annual 5 Dutch Days, which celebrates the ongoing influence of Dutch culture in New York City, the Trespa Design Center hosted Still Life, an exhibition uniting the jewelry and furniture designs of Netherlands-born Alissia Melka-Teichroew (1976) of New York studio byAMT and portraits of them made by Eindhoven-born, and based Lisa Klappe (1979).

    Melka-Teichroew’s Jointed Jewels co-opts the auto industry’s Selective Laser Sintering technology to create Cartier, Bulgari and Victorian-inspired jewelry based on the ball joint, a part typically found in cars and hip replacements. The high-tech Jewels will be accompanied by her low-tech Peasant furniture collection, which also recalls, while updating, traditional design. ByAMT’s objects will be ranged in vignettes in front of still lifes of them photographed by Klappe and mounted on framed easels, each pair enriching the translation beside it. Standing at various heights, calibrated to the scale of the physical objects they describe, the large-scale photographs will form a swagging terrain that might be a land or cityscape of images and objects.

    The two bodies of work are finely matched since the pragmatic approach of each woman often results in works that are richly ambiguous and equivocal. Klappe’s canvas-sized photos are simultaneously colorful and darkly evocative, serene and obscene, personally confrontational and filmic. No surprise then, that the exhibition’s Louvre-like profusion of artwork will suggest the atelier of an Old Master, where still-lifes are ranged directly in front of the canvas on which they are being painted, offering a tantalizing comparison of life and art, or art and art, as the case may be.
    The show was from November 15-30 2010 at Trespa Design Centre in New York (USA) For more photos click here.
