Intro
An overview on Zellweger’s work in different media: from jewellery, metalwork, ceramics and textile to installation, performance and the use of computer generated material.
Foreign Bodies aims to extend the definition of body adornment today. In the search for improvement, ultimate functionality, beauty and perfection, the body has become a luxury item. Christoph Zellweger makes hybrid objects, bridging territories between art and design.

This book gives an overview on Zellweger’s work in different media: from jewellery, metalwork, ceramics and textile to installation, performance and the use of computer generated material. It includes documentation of works in progress and in context, from public spaces to the pieces worn on the body.

The publication includes essays by Martina Margetts, Pietro Morandi and Sabine Runde as well as a conversation with Emma Woffenden, Damian O’Sullivan, Iris Eichenberg and Ted Noten.
