Susan Pietzsch - Kostbarkeiten - kakegai no nai mono
This event has ended.
In the exhibition of the German artist Susan Pietzsch there is a reference to its specific spatial circumstances. The gallery space is situated in a former warehouse (called "KURA" in Japanese). This space was traditionally used for the storage of valuable objects and treasures. In this exhibition, an installation with sugar objects and jewellery will be referring to this background.
Susan Pietzsch's work distinguishes itself by being simultaneously conventional, wearable jewellery, and also something that functions as an autonomous object or installation, which then, presented independent of the body, is not conveyed as adornment but as an artistic statement.
Susan Pietzsch founded schmuck2 in 1997 and since 2001 has installed a continuous international exhibition programme. She has worked in different collaborations, as schmuck2, with a focus on unusual, diverse takes on the themes of “jewellery”, combining people from different cultural backgrounds such as artists, designers and art-theorists. Her projects shape a multi-faced image for contemporary styles of jewellery, using unconventional concepts that move between fine and applied arts.
