Intro
Natural materials combined with photographic images composing fragmented stories about recollection and beauty.

Artist list

Bettina Speckner

In her third solo exhibition at Galerie Ra, Das Eigene und das Fremde (The Every Day and the far Away) Bettina Speckner is showing jewellery which, like fragmented stories, is about recollection and beauty. She combines
natural materials like pearls, shells, coral and gems with each other or with photographic images in a sensitive and refined manner. Images from nature, landscape, architecture or still lifes, etched in zinc or burned in enamel, monochrome and inert, like a moment from a dream. By adding abstract forms and unusual materials, she changes ferrotypes, portrait photographs from the second half of the nineteenth century, into intriguing, intimate, yet quirky collages. No one is better than Bettina Speckner in creating a visual poetry that carries you along into timeless, nostalgic worlds.
