Florian Weichsberger. Necklace: Untitled, 2017. Steel, cotton, brass.
.  . Awarded at: Herbert Hofmann Prize 2017. 
. This series is inspired by tools and knives, they are made mostly of steel, so they look technical and aggressive, but also designed and aestheticized. At the same time, there is no clear function. For me they are about the space in between people, and what´s in there, you could see them as a shield or as a menace to define your personal space around you or to defend it, or protect it. But also, the aspect that you could hurt yourself wearing the piece, or that you break it. I`m interested in this point of  vulnerability when you`re full armed, like Achilles and his heel.
