Intro
In the Frontroom  David Bielander : in his new work he has changed the classic golden tooth into a ring; a red gold disc, with the occasional intervention, in the form of an alluring ladybird. What he makes is always both a feast for the eyes and a tickling of the mind.

Artist list

David Bielander
The wearing of jewellery is a game. The one wears it from inflation-proof gold or silver in order to make their presence felt, the other prefers to rail against such social codes by wearing unusual materials or designs. It is the difference between the safe and experimental, between the conventional and the fun.
David Bielander plays this game not as a wearer but as a worker in precious metals. He unites the skills of traditional craftsmanship with an unusual free spirit. With Bielander, the appreciation of his jewellery design lies in the ingenuity and technique; pleasure in the anticipation and wealth of ideas. For instance, in his new work he has changed the classic golden tooth into a ring; a red gold disc, with the occasional intervention, in the form of an alluring ladybird. What he makes is always both a feast for the eyes and a tickling of the mind.

In the FrontRoom during this exhibition period is a small display of new work by this Swiss artist. During the opening we will be launching a new publication 'Greatest Hits', giving an overview of Bielander’s work in recent years. This was published by the Cultural Department of Munich, to coincide with the Förderpreis für angewandte Kunst 2009 award.
