Artists reception @ booth in galleries area
12.00am – 5.00pm


At JOYA 2018 Gioielli in Fermento presents the work of the award winner Ryungjae Jung, from South Korea.

His investigation in advanced techniques and aesthetical balances gives birth to works which are precious for their lightness, their movement and their interaction with the body, beyond the nature of the material and the structure they are built of. This approach has been interpreted by all the jury as the inner concept of fermentation in jewellery for the current edition of the Gioielli in Fermento contest.

Ryungjae Jung is a young artist who lives and works in Seoul, S.Korea. He is actually resident artist at the Seoul Art Space_Sindang at Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture.
He started his studies at ZeroOne Design Center in Seoul and graduated in Metalwork and Jewelry at Kookmin University, attending courses both in Italy (Alchimia) and Germany (as an exchange student at the Hochschule Pforzheim).
He takes part in several exhibition projects in Far East as well as in Europe and Western countries (Beijing International Jewelry Art Exhibition, Itami Japan, Seoul Art Centre, Sofa Chicago, Joya, enjoia’t, Autor, Talente and Inhorgenta, Berlin Deutsches Technikmuseum).
Ryungjae Jung has been recently on show with his first solo exhibits: ‘Youth’ Gellery Daham (Ansan, South Korea, 2018) and ‘Between Function and Beauty’ Need21 Gallery (Seoul, South Korea, 2017).

Visiting JOYA you will also have the chance of the real view of a selection of works from all the editions setup and meet many of the artists who took part in the project.
Artists reception will be every day at our booth from 12 to 5pm. See online program on the facebook page Gioielli in Fermento.

Ryungjae Jung, South Korea, Gioielli in Fermento 2018 Award



Sara Barbanti, Italy, Gioielli in Fermento 2018 Emerging Artist Award



Gioielli in Fermento is an international exhibition project and award for contemporary studio jewellery.
Starting from the landscapes of Italy in the winemaking region of Emilia hills, it opens its borders involving established and emerging artists from every country to express their relation with the wine world. In both worlds, on jewellery and wine, the challenge may be seen as turning natural elements into something precious and unique.
Since 2011, eight editions, nearly 500 artists and a wider number of pieces have been presented under the selection of an international board of advisors in the field. Each year a wide collection is on show.

Curated by Eliana Negroni with the kind collaboration of AGC Italian Contemporary Jewelry Association, Charon Kransen Arts, Klimt02 network, Joya Barcelona and supported by private by partners such as Allied Group, and members of Le Donne del Vino, the Italian Women of Wine association.

In 2018 Italian public institutions set the Award “Premio Città di Castel San Giovanni” for students attending art schools and academies in collaboration with Le Arti Orafe jewellery school in Florence, and host the exhibition in their renown historical buildings, such as Villa Braghieri in the province of Piacenza and Oratorio di San Rocco in Padova.

The collection is available for travelling exhibition in private galleries and institutional venues. Most of the works are available for sale.

The next call for the competition will be open soon. Online registration: contact
