The decision concerning the way in which the piece of jewellery should be worn, is delegated by Marianne Schliwinski to the wearer. Her works are subtle. They are poetical in their sensitivity; they are narrative in their referentiality, and attentive in their motives. Her artistic strategy consists of the assemblage, communal viewing and the combination of forms, of raw materials and things, of objects hung, carried or worn on the body or within a spatial context.
