A large overview of the jewellery and ceramics of the German/South African artist Daniel Kruger. His sensual and colourful objects are coveted by museums and collectors. One of the largest collections of his work can be found at the Stedelijk Museum ’s-Hertogenbosch. This is the second time an overview of the oeuvre of this unconventional artist will be on show at the Museum.
 

Artist list

Daniel Kruger
Daniel Kruger’s jewellery and ceramics are a play of contrasts between organic and geometric forms, hard and soft materials, colour and form. These contrasts heighten the impact of his forms on the senses. His choice of materials is eclectic. Ornament and décor refer to antique or ethnic jewellery, or ceramic kitsch. He refers to the pronouncedly erotic quality of his work and its dialogue between nature and culture. Apparently Daniel Kruger is out not just to please his public, but above all to stimulate it.
