Intro
Duo is an exhibition project planned for two years, in the rooms of the Birgitta Knauth Schmuck gallery, in which the work of two jewelers from different generations is portrayed in a monthly rotation. This is the setting. The choice of partner, however, is up to every invited artist. The collaboration might be an encounter, an exchange, or a debate and cannot be predicted. In this juxtaposition in Duo every single one works with a wooden box of 30 x 40 x 6 cm, which functions as a frame. This box is provided and is to be filled individually. We are looking forward to a variety of outcomes.

Artist list

Mari Ishikawa, Fumiki Taguchi
Niklas Link, who served part of his apprenticeship diploma in my studio and has acquired an international reputation within the last years, is my co-curator. The two of us already personify two different generations. At the end of our exhibition cycle in 2022, there will be a holistic view in which the differences of generations and the similarities can be observed but also what has been kept as tradition and what has been renewed radically. In short: we will take stock of contemporary jewelry.
/Birgitta Knauth and Niklas Link

In this exhibition, two artists will exhibit new works "Ephemeral". In Japan, "ma" is used for both time and space, and the artists have captured the elusive sensations and emotions that are invisible. They tried to express the elusive ephemeral itself, such as a momentary scene and an indescribable sensation.

Saturday, 31 Oct, 10 am - 2 pm.
Opening Hours:
Monday to Friday, 10 am - 1 pm, 2:30 pm - 6 pm.
Saturday, 10 am - 2 pm.

About Mari Ishikawa
Mari Ishikawa was born in 1964 in Kyoto, Japan. She lives and works in Munich, Germany. She sees a parallel world through her everyday life and she translated it into jewelry. We can’t see anything unless we try. Discovery begins with the sense of sight. Her theme is “Shakkei (Borrowing Scenery)” which is one of the architectural theories. The Kimono pattern-surface of water is used as a borrowing scenery to express the sea at night. In addition, a photograph of water that cannot be caught with our eyes was used as the background. Jewelry could be expressed with the person who wears it as borrowed scenery. Alternatively, the jewelry may be the borrowing scenery of the person.

About Fumiki Taguchi
Fumiki Taguchi was born in 1977 in Ibaraki-ken, Japan. He lives and works in Kobe, Japan. She expresses the sensations hidden in the memories that he has experienced. His theme is “Time”, he visualized the ephemeral and beautiful fading moment. He projected his memories and imaginations into shape. The ephemeral scene was expressed by the white surface layer of silver powder. He wants you to project your own memory on the work and look back on time.
