Bijoux textile – textile jewelry
« This exhibition shows a variety of current artistic attitudes, techniques and materials in visual arts that make up textile jewels. Trying to define textile jewels is getting pretty hard but this exhibition has the ambition to give it a try as well as to enhance the development of textile jewellery. … Modern jewellery develops from its originally purely decorative function to an autonomous artistic expression. The jewel turns into a statement of the artist and into an interconnection with the customer.
Nowadays, jewel-makers combine precious and ordinary materials and often use the « soft » material of textile or soften the hard metal by applying textile techniques, by sewing or plaiting etc.
The exhibiting artists converted textile jewels into an artistic expression and thus their works of art can be seen within important collections in museums across the world where you can admire the works of famous artists like Beppe Kessler from the Netherlands, Verena Sieber-Fuchs from Switzerland or Elisabeth Krampe and Ines Schwotzer from Germany. The exhibition also presents the works of the emerging generation with their fresh input and masterful techniques. » ( Source: Press release)
