Intro
(...) The Still Lifes collection consists of two groups: on the one hand brooches like small sculptures, carved from stone. On the other, brooches and necklaces in which everyday glassware has been cut and rearranged into new compositions, new still lifes. (...)

Artist list

Gésine Hackenberg
The source of Gésine Hackenberg's newest work, Still Lifes, lies in her study of 17th and 18th century Dutch still life paintings and their meaning, the tables exquisitely laden with the finest tableware and food. She re-interprets this perfect translation of the three to the two-dimensional, the realistic vista of the dishes, glasses and bowls, into her work. The Still Lifes collection consists of two groups: on the one hand brooches like small sculptures, carved from stone. On the other, brooches and necklaces in which everyday glassware has been cut and rearranged into new compositions, new still lifes. The body takes on the role of the canvas as it were and becomes a tableau vivant.
