Intro
In 2010 Galerie Ra gave warm welcome too six young artists, introducing them to the gallery with work that was still linked to their final exam projects. Now Ra is showing the next phase of their development as independent jewellery artists.

Artist list

Laura Deakin, Anja Eichler, Jasmin Matzakow, Jie Sun, Silvia Weidenbach, Zindzi Wijminga
Galerie Ra’s forthcoming exhibition entitled The Young Ones features new jewellery by six young artists. In 2010 Galerie Ra opened its doors on Nes, providing a warm welcome too for new talent and recent graduates. Ra introduced them to the gallery with work that was still linked to their final exam projects. Now, however, Ra is showing the next phase of their development as independent jewellery artists:

Laura Deakin asked herself ‘how can I make the transient permanent?’ and this is the starting point for her latest collection entitled My Press.

Anja Eichler has used the specific qualities of work gloves, her material of choice for Urbanauts: a collection of brooches reminiscent of incredible creatures.

Jasmin Matzakow
is fascinated by wood and literally digs into this creating archaic-looking forms and structures.

Jie Sun
first made the Big Fish and now its The Queen: imaginative animals, carefully constructed, from numerous simple components.

Silvia Weidenbach
combines new technology with traditional artisan skills in her jewellery pieces. By understanding and using both, she discovers new forms of expression.

Zindzi Wijminga
works with plastic disposable cutlery, transforming it into fluid objects, given a new lease of life as jewellery
