Statement

Jewellery artists are individualists; they tend to avoid groupings. Unlike such classical groups of artists as Die Brücke or Der Blaue Reiter, which shared a program, Castle in the Air is only too glad to remain an association of individual talents. They have never advocated any common philosophy besides the desire to make a contribution to contemporary art in a small format, and to be capable of using a piece of jewellery as a key to an imagined world where fantasy can prove to be reality. At some point, the participants developed a non-rational feeling of belongingness, an inexpressible and unaccountable kinship, as Kadri Mälk has called it.
The walls of Castle in the Air are permeable; its content, ephemeral. It takes the form of a projection, developing at a magical moment like some object that in the morning rays of the sun seems close enough to touch, although it is kilometres away. Art bridges that gap; desire overcomes reality. And, anyhow, what does reality look like when viewed from the fantasy side?

Rüdiger Joppien, Ph.D., art historian and curator


The jewellery of the artists of Castle in the Air brings the viewer together with fragility, vulnerability, awe, dignity, power and magic. The concentrated spiritual power sequestered in this jewellery speaks to us with needle-sharp delicacy, evocative radiance and concealed magic. It inspires us to explore the meeting point of the apprehensible and the elusive, incites us to go outside the "box" delimited by space-time and make discoveries also in our familiar four dimensions. Castle in the Air has the power to intrigue, surprise, delight, and challenge us. Despite offering stiff resistance, the playground encircled by conventional reality proves only a mirage, and somnambulance becomes a way to delve into the essential strata of a deeper reality.
