An unusual publication about an unconventional artist and his explorations of the boundaries between jewellery and sculpture.
This is the first publication to the complete oeuvre of the unconventional artist Peter Skubic from Austria. For years, Skubic has been exploring jewellery as a medium and found new solutions. He does not believe jewellery necessarily needs to be wearable and worn, but primarily regards it as the result of his artistic researches. Skubic often uses steel and more rarely gold. The shapes of his creations are angular and squared. The objects are constructed from various parts and held in tension by mechanical forces such as stress and strain, by magnetic forces or the elasticity of the material. The most important criteria are satisfactory proportions, which impress themselves on the observer by the ascetic spareness of the creations. The book includes objects produced over more than 30 years, the results of his search for new ways of expression and for the limits and boundaries of jewellry: For his action 'Jewellery under the Skin', the artist for seven years wore a shaped jewellery implant under the skin of his left forearm as a reference to hidden jewellery (e.g., amulets) and adornment involving mutilation (e.g., tattoos).
