Spring is an exhibition with sparkling, new work of upcoming talents. Small objects and experiments with new techniques, with unknown materials, holding a world of imagination. A glimpse of poetry and fairytales.
The secret of the garden
Butterflies with wide spread wings and beetles with long feelers are arranged in a circle with legs next to each other  and form brooches, pendants, rings and bangles. They also occur individually, as an ear stud sitting on the tip of the ear, or as a pin, nonchalantly crawling on the lapel.
The insects are their own silhouettes: silver shadows, sometimes gilded or blackened. They sit in symmetric ornaments which grow into three dimensional constructions and resemble flowers in bloom. The beetles and butterflies turn into petals.
And the secret of the garden? Its flowers can spread their wings and fly away.
