Gésine Hackenberg
The source of Gésine Hackenberg’s new collection of work lies in her study of 17th and 18th century Dutch still lifes – tables exquisitely laden with the finest tableware and food. Hackenberg interprets this perfect translation of the three to the two dimensional, the realistic vista of the dishes and bowls, into her work. The body takes on the role of the canvas as it were... 
Various groups of work are the result: brooches like small sculptures, carved from stone, or brooches and necklaces in which existing glasswork has been cut and rearranged into new compositions, new still lifes. And now again Hackenberg has made interventions into existing, everyday, household objects and has redefined their familiar beauty.
