Artist list

Karl Fritsch, Noon Passama
When Karl Fritsch graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich in 1994, I was so enthusiastic about his work that I offered him a solo-presentation at the KunstRai Fair, Amsterdam, in 1995. Since then he has grown into an internationally renowned and appreciated artist who constantly reinvents himself. Karl is a master in the handling of metal and stone and has an unmistakeable personal handwriting. He is particularly fascinated by the crafting of rings. In his recent pieces he has applied the ancient decorative technique of niëllo, featuring numbers and letters. Karl’s rings speak a kind of primal language and at the same time are genuine jewellery, jewels apace with the times, full of surprises and humour. They are rings that bond with their wearer; they create meaning; they become cherished. / Paul Derrez

Formal Research initially focused on one classical type of jewellery: the chain. This project primarily explored the form of each link and how the links then interconnect with each other. The form of a link can be very iconic, and its genesis can be compared to designing a typeface. Creating chain necklaces is a balancing act between technical and aesthetic aspects. It is like composing a sentence out of a transformable typeface. In the forthcoming exhibition, Noon Passama presents chain necklaces and one-off edition hand-sculpted bracelets. The groups of bracelets were crafted with the following keywords in mind: dividing / sequencing / sizing / layering. During the sculpting process, the shapes were transformed by manipulation and time. The results were not edited and are presented as they turned out. The try-outs are the end-products, and vice versa. / Noon Passama

Opening: Saturday 17 October, from 4 to 6 pm.
