Intro
Yong Joo Kim and Kasimir Oppermann couldn't be more different at first sight. Yong Joo is a young Korean artist who studied contemporary jewellery in the USA and now teaches at the art academy in Korea. Her works are made of Velcro tapes. Kasimir was a master student of Joseph Beuys and lives as a freelance artist in Hanover. His work material is glass beads, from which he creates big jewellery objects in the most elaborate handcraft. What the two have in common, however, is their attitude to the body and the vivid, softness in their oeuvre. The jewelry objects captivate by their lightness and the resulting volume that plays around the body. The surfaces are textile-like, colourful and malleable and thus also a haptic experience.

About Galerie Biró
Olga Zobel Biró opened Galerie Biró not far from the city’s large art museums in Munich Schwabing in 1992. At the beginning, the gallery specialised only in plastic jewellery design. The gallery’s strict concept saw its aim as presenting the aesthetic qualities of this material, which has made such an impact on this last century. “Plastic remains impregnated throughout with this wonder: it is less a thing than the trace of a movement” wrote the French philosopher Roland Barthes (Roland Barthes, Mythologies). To her great joy, Olga Zobel discovered the Dutch artists Gijs Bakker und Paul Derrez, as well as Peter Chang from Glasgow, Thomas Gentille from New York and Pavel Opocensky from Prague, to name just a few. They all made extraordinary jewellery from plastics. At the beginning of the 1990s, Galerie Biró published its first catalogue Kunststoff Schmuck Kunst.
 
In 2010, Kinga Zobel became a partner in the gallery and has broadened its scope through her own projects. Particularly memorable was the SCHMUCKshow 2012 in Maximilian Forum in Munich. In 2015, she published the catalogue GUT Germany’s upcoming talents.

Through the mainly solo exhibitions held in the gallery, and through our participation in international fairs, we offer insight into the astonishing range of contemporary art jewellery, showing both the leading names in the field, as well as up and coming talent.
