The exhibition Mixed Greens will be located in the studio space of photographer Antje Hanebeck and coincides with the annual show Schmuck at the International Trade Fair. More than sixty satellite exhibitions are held during Munich Jewellery Week (MJW) in galleries, alternative art spaces and museums. Mixed Greens is an expression used to describe a bowl of leafy green salad added to a nice meal, and also describes this group of artists selected from six countries, mixed together in one place as a side dish to the main course - the show: Schmuck.

Jorge Castañón b. 1957 in Argentina, where he lives and works. “I suddenly knew that I was actually talking about what is not there, the void, and I found myself again making bowls, hollows filled with nothing or almost nothing.” Por aquí estoy, wood, 2012.

Bettina Dittlmann b. 1964 in Germany, where she lives and works. “Green thinking... green is the gold we forge…. Pink is the colour of my pins. A color is not political. But…!” Untitled, brooch, iron, enamel, 2017

Michael Jank b. 1972 in Germany, where he lives and works. “To work with Bettina on our rings, allows me freedom from my own work as we actively collaborate with
only hands, hammers and focus.” FOREVERRINGS, forged; iron, copper, fine silver and 24K fair-trade gold, 2017.

Rebecca Hannon b. 1973 in USA, lives and works in Canada. “I work in series and find each new grouping a challenge to create tension between the story, and the right medium to evoke meaning.” Graduated Lima Neckpiece, laminate, silver, steel, 2016.

Selen Özus b.1983 in Turkey, where she lives and works. “I make jewellry because I can share my memories with the people wearing my pieces, so than they can become new memories.“ The Closest, brooch, porcelain, gold, 2016.

Flora Vagi b.1978 in Hungary, where she lives and works. “I make objects that are intimate and meaningful to their owners. Jewellry, which not only adorns, but talks or sometimes‚ whispers.“ MLF series, brooch, seawood & paint, 2017.

Sayumi Yokouchi b. 1971 in Japan. Lives and works in USA & Japan. “Simplicity becomes a strategic tool for process of making to comfort my own intrinsic complexities.” Making Without Adding Much, brooch, silver, colored copper wire, 2017.
