Artist list

Margit Jäschke
Inspired by the relevant Greek god Kairos stands for auspicious moments that we ought to seize lest they pass us by. Margit Jäschke's describes her approach as follows: If you ask me about the 'leitmotif' running through my work, my main priority is not on ideas, concepts, materials or processes, but I try to be aware of 'when the moment is right.

As a wanderer between art worlds, the artist's distinctly individual Œuvre is transcending the boundaries of the common genres, such as installation, painting, sculpture and art jewellery. Deliberately blurring the distinction between wearable jewellery and autonomous works of art, she emphasises details that evoke different associations in different viewers. Closely related to her eponymous catalogue Kairos by Arnoldsche Art Publishers, the exhibition shows how Margit Jäschke delights her audience with her very unique poetry of things.

Born in 1962, Margit Jäschke studied Jewellery Design at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design, Halle in the 1980s. She lives and works as an independent artist in Halle (Saale). Her works -jewelry, drawings, and objects- celebrate the special moment of inspiration, the origin of all creativity.

. The artist does by no means aim to simply contrast exuberant pomp with modest elements. Rather, she addresses issues of affluence, overabundance, and resource exploitation in a contemporary stance. When she elevates supposedly inferior, broken, or discarded, she acts allegorically in terms of a new aesthetic quality of recycling that can be accompanied by ethical and economic impulses. It might come as a surprise to invoke the field of discourse of the Cameroonian philosopher Achille Mbembe here, who has repeatedly spoken of the concept of “care & repair”: attention to everyday objects and the common course of their repair.
