Intro
Two high-ranking artists who could not be more different in their formal language.
 

Artist list

Andi Gut, Daniel Kruger
Their works are characterized by a wide variety of biographies and cultural experiences. The Swiss Andi Gut (born 1971 in Zug) and the South African Daniel Kruger (born 1951 in Cape Town) are united by their attitude to jewellery. Both are professors, and they also have in common their teaching activities and their involvement with young aspiring jewellery makers. (Daniel Kruger emeritus professor at Burg Giebichenstein in Halle/Saale and Andi Gut, professor at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Pforzheim).

Daniel Kruger's works for the exhibition are inspired by nature. Here the delicate necklace predominates. His necklaces are filigree, decorated with miniature pictures or pressed plant parts. His bead and textile works are completely new; they show rather massive, bodily forms in which his South African origins are clearly recognizable. Kruger is a precise observer, an admirer of material cultures and techniques from all over the world. Like hardly any other contemporary jewelry artist, he is committed to tradition, to craftsmanship, which is also his source of inspiration.
 
Andi Gut's new works, exclusively brooches, are inspired by small disturbances in everyday life. Things that don't work perfectly, but you have to reckon with. All the better if you can see the special in them and perhaps even celebrate them. The hole in the stocking, skulls that squint or have crooked teeth and even the deformed foot has something poetic about it as Athletes Foot. Some pieces are made of titanium from discarded airplanes. The idea of recycling an airplane with jewelry is a bit absurd, but symbolizes far too many kilometers I have covered in the airplane - says Andi Gut, who commutes between London and Pforzheim.
