Beginning with jewellery and its proverbial timelessness, Gisbert Stach experiments with processes of transformation, transience and revaluation.
His pieces of jewellery are worked into asphalt, dissolved in acid or used as targets in knife-throwing performances. Ground amber serves as a pigment to give brooches the deceptively real look of schnitzels. In his twenty-five years of working as a silver and goldsmith, Gisbert Stach expanded the notion of jewellery to include other media such as photography, video and performance.
