StatementTalente 2015 presents the work of 99 artists, designers and craftsmen from 32 countries in 12 different areas of production. It is the first time that works from participants from Ghana, Cuba, Iran and Lebanon will be included in the exhibition. This year the exhibition is characterized by innovative, very different works in glass, ceramics and jewellery as well as by a large selection of textiles. In addition to works that are inspired by nature – whether by plant forms or by the atmosphere and moods of the landscape – works are to be seen that are dealing with the city and try to translate its poetry and problems into a visual mode. The appeal of surfaces and the development of new techniques to enhance the range of possibilities resulted in very different works. Other topics are the definition and the meaning of home and country, problems of environmental protection and the relationship of new technical possibilities and traditional craftsmanship. The combination of various unusual ideas, of different conceptual and aesthetic approaches results in a very special and fascinating exhibition.
As in the last years, many applications arrived for Talente from the field of jewellery. The young artists show a special interest in the techniques and ideas of the collage. Impressive are the contributions of the students from Idar-Oberstein (Germany) working with and interpreting the material stone which results in very different works with diverse concerns but all of quite archaic character (Sharaeh Aghaei, Iran; Elvira Golombosi, Ukraine; Tala Yuan, China). The works deal with issues of homeland, strangeness and identity, the unconscious and magic forces being inherent to the objects as well as with the importance and the condition of civilization-creating elements in the present. All in all, this year again the general interest in the combination of different materials and for the connection of specially made parts and found objects is evident. These elements can be created into architecturally-style arrangements, extended into long tubes, combined with materials such as perspex glass or be gathered into subtle, poetic compositions. Besides the major inspiration from natural forms technical ideas play a significant rôle. Katie Collins (USA/Australia) for example works from steel collapsible necklaces and bracelets that present different stages and are inspired by machines. Unusual are Karin Gyllerfelt’s (Sweden) works in which photos of richly draped textiles are applied on metal surfaces causing a vexing trompe l’œil-effect. By means of technique and motifs she hints at the themes of transformation and transience. Jing Yang (China/Germany) deals in her "vases" not only with gender-based stereotypes of her native China, but also with the playful analysis of forms by dividing a vase shape into compartments reflecting in her pendants on the relationship of these parts.
Altogether, 99 designers will present their works. The best ones will be honored on Saturday, 14 March with the TALENTE-prizes at 4:30 pm on stage in Hall B1.
* The special show TALENTE is sponsored by: Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie due to an order of the Deutscher Bundestag and the Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wirtschaft und Medien, Energie und Technologie.
