Intro
The process of forging iron and precious metal is a central theme in the work of Gabriele Kutschera (*1950). By hammering and annealing, the material’s form slowly transforms. This rhythm of tension and release as well as the associated perception of time and transformation becomes the artist’s leitmotif.
The techniques used to forge iron and precious metal are a key theme in the work of Viennese artist Gabriele Kutschera (b. 1950). Starting out with jewellery creations related to the body, she turned to spatially related, forged iron sculptures from the 1990s. The rhythmical process of altering the cross-section of an industrially prefabricated iron rod is a defining factor of her metalsmithing: by hammering and annealing – the creation and release of the metal’s stresses – she is able to shape the material. Kutschera translates this sequential processing into her expressive works. The perception of time and change is her chief motif, which she also addresses in her paper works Timelines.
The current publication documents the distinguished Austrian artist’s works in iron sculpture, jewellery and paper from 2000 to 2018.

Illustrated with partly large-format photographs, the current publication documents Gabriele Kutschera’s works from 2000 to 2018. Essays by renowned authors introduce her oeuvre from differing perspectives, and an interview with the designer and curator Verena Formanek expounds, in particular, the relationship between art jewellery and sculpture.
