Cardboard Crucifix and Paper Bag vessel awarded the Robbe & Berking Prize

Germany, 2016 - 18th International Silver Triennial, worldwide competition.

 

Jury statement: The expectation placed on silver and its handling has been cleverly

overthrown and at the same time creates an appeal in the objects Crucifix

and Paper Bag (Wine), which, in turn, poses many a question. The materiality of

paper has been overridden through the utilization of silver. It is a subtle play on

traditional conceptions and values, in the material aspect as well as with regard

to the impact of the two objects. The design, form, structure, and technical execution

are all successful and convincing down to the smallest details.

 

The Paper Bag is available exclusively at Ornamentum and will be exhibited at Design Miami, 2016

June 19 - October 18, 2015

 

What is value? What is originality? What is the difference between an original and a reproduction? Isn’t art always a reproduction of an idea or a perception? These are questions that preoccupy artist Ted Noten. For the exhibition ‘Non Zone’ this summer he is taking a risk: he is moving his entire studio to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and remaining behind in the empty space, his ‘Non Zone’. During this period he will reflect upon the origins of his work and keep visitors informed by sending a visual message each day from the ‘Non Zone’.

Iris Eichenberg at Cranbrook Museum

Iris Eichenberg: Bend
November 23, 2014 – January 25, 2015
Bend is a solo exhibition by contemporary jewelry artist Iris Eichenberg, Artist-in-Residence and Head of the Metalsmithing Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art.  As a point of departure, Eichenberg revisited her artistic practice; the result is an unconventional retrospective of her 25-year career told through a body of new work. Decades in the making, this exhibition is an introspective look at the alchemic process of creation and the artist’s life-long research into the behavior of materials.

Late Harvest juxtaposes contemporary art made with taxidermy with historically significant wildlife paintings, resulting in intriguing parallels and startling aesthetic contrasts. The exhibition seeks to simultaneously confirm—through historically-significant wildlife paintings—and subvert—through contemporary art and photography—viewers’ preconceptions of the place of animals in culture. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
