 During this exhibition ZWARD shows one-offs – limited and unlimited edition jewelry. The works are generally realized in resin, in combination with precious metals. They stand for contemporary craft. Resin is a beautiful and versatile material, which makes highly detailed designs possible.
By playing with lines, transparency and color, surprising « Smoke-like » patterns emerge. At first glance nothing is what it seems to be. Previously ZWARD was inspired by the link between childhood and adulthood, focusing on toys as a main inspiration.
Their latest work is about leaving this nostalgia behind by deconstructing and destroying toys, and creating something new out of their “ashes”. ZWARD’s latest pieces deal with breaking bonds. By digging deeper into the nature of the material the wearer is being deceived and confuses the viewer’s eye.

EXPO ‘Danner Rotunde. Neu Kuratiert von Otto Künzli’ – Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum, Munich (DE) – 14 Mars 2014 – 14 Mars 2015

Danner Rotunde. Neu Kuratiert von Otto Künzli

Danner Rotunde. Neu Kuratiert von Otto Künzli

In 2014 ten years of jewellery in the Pinakothek der Moderne are celebrated with a new, ‘revisited’ exhibition in the Danner Rotunda – open to the public as of March 15.

Since 2004 Die Neue Sammlung has incorporated contemporary jewellery in the Pinakothek der Moderne in its permanent display in the Danner Rotunda as well as in temporary exhibitions. As such, one of the most multifaceted artistic forms of expression today is permanently being presented in a museum of this type for the first time alongside art, architecture, graphic works and design.

The Danner Rotunda forms a central core in which exhibits by more than one hundred jewellery artists from around the world are shown – thanks to the commitment of the Danner Foundation with its extensive collection and private donors, as well as gifts from individual jewellery makers.

The first presentation was curated by Prof. Hermann Jünger, the director of the jewellery class at the Munich Art Academy between 1972 and 1990, together with Otto Künzli who took over the professorship in 1991. Through the revamping of the Danner Rotunda in 2010, Karl Fritsch – as the representative of a younger generation – set a completely new accent.

Subsequently Otto Künzli was once again overhauling the collection for the reopening of the Danner Rotunda in 2014 which includes exhibits solely from the Danner Foundation’s and the museum’s own holdings without any loans. Whilst forming a link to the concept of the initial installation, the protagonists in the international world of jewellery are shown in a new light, reciprocal effects can be highlighted, associations provoked and dynamic correlations created between the works.
