As a metaphor for the living, Gerti Machacek’s (*1955) jewelry is very much centered on the body, geared toward movement and changing perspectives. Despite the different materials, its pervasive clarity fascinates and delights the wearer.

This monograph offers comprehensive insights into the work of an Austrian art jewelry pioneer. Her ideas comprise thrilling combinations of fi gurative evolution, architectural development, and a richly layered sense of humor.

Essays by the art historian Anne-Katrin Rossberg, the artist and philosopher Elisabeth von Samsonow, and the writers Beatrix Kramlovsky and Lydia Mischkulnig reveal a personal approach to Machacek’s work, while the visual artist Sophie P.lzl contributed exceptional images with her photograms of selected pieces of jewelry.

An extensive, color-coded catalog section guides the readers through the selected works and the world of ideas of Gerti Machacek.
