Intro
Helen Britton, Yukata Minegishi and David Bienlader started to share workshop when they were students in Munich, and more than 13 years later they still share it. Galerie Rosemarie Jäger is proud to present this three very different and masterful approachs to contemporary jewellery that come up from the same place.

 

Artist list

David Bielander, Helen Britton, Yutaka Minegishi
Australia, Switzerland and Japan.Three people working together for 13 years in the same room, and before that working together in a much smaller room, during their studies. But all the time working separately too, the position of the individual work could not be more disparate: in Yutaka‘s case the meticulous reduction of a single material to a perfect form, in David’s case the transformation of exactly the right material in the pursuit of an instantly recognizable figurative picture, and in my case the obsessive, complex construction, both theoretically and practically, of heterogeneous worlds.
 
Three very different cultures, three very different educations. Each has always pursued an authentic private vision, having built their practice in a time before the global explosion of contemporary art jewelry, and the age of style surfing and the quick fix. Despite or perhaps because of these contrasts there are threads that run through, the foreignness of each to the other a strong fascination, as are the shared interests: cooking, collecting, music. And of course sharing a space making this kind of work is also sharing a life, now almost 20 years of life as foreign jewelers in Germany.
Not at all surprising that they can call this show the bride, the groom and the best man.
