In Between

Interview with Sigurd Bronger, Art Jewelry Forum, April 2015

"Stay curious, and a pure idea will automatically come to you" (Sigurd Bronger)

Known for his juxtapositions of contradictory objects - such as a heavy-duty metal clamp holding a goose egg - Sigurd Bronger traines as a goldsmith but found his calling in constructing wonderfully absurd contemporary jewellery. In Olivia Shih's interview on the occasion of his exhibition In Between (until 11.4., Galerie Ra, Amsterdam), he talks about how craftsmanship allows him freedom and how a fateful visit to Galerie Ra in 1979 changed the course of his career. Read the complete interview on Art Jewelry Forum.

More carrying devices are to be found in Bronger's Laboratorium Mechanum!

Group of who? Canada's vision of Impressionism

A.K. Prakash in an interview with The Globe and Mail

Toronto-based Ash Prakash is, at 68, one of the most appetitive and knowledgeable collectors of what one auction house used to call “important Canadian art” in the country. His is a connoisseurship cultivated over more than three decades, exercised with considerable discretion, not to mention resourcefulness and resources, both his own and those of the wealthy clients he’s served as adviser and dealer. Prakash has always thought big – he’s been a major mover in recent efforts to heighten appreciation of Emily Carr, the Group of Seven and Tom Thomson “in foreign parts” – but even acolytes and aficionados are likely to be amazed by the ambition and heft of his latest project. It’s an 800-or-so-page, fully illustrated hardcover book, weighing almost five kilograms, called Impressionism in Canada: A Journey of Rediscovery – nothing less than Prakash’s heroic attempt to fully weave Canada’s contributions into the great narrative of Impressionism. Recently, associates spoke with the author about his monument. – James Adams

Tokens of the Path

Exhibition in the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich

The exhibition Tokens of the Path. Japanese Devotional and Pilgrimage Images in the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich presents the collection of Wilfried Spinner (1854-1918) to the public for the first time.

On behalf of his return from an East Asian mission, the Swiss pastor brought back to Europe around eighty religious scrolls, which have only very recently become objects of academic-ethnological exploration in the West as well as in Japan itself. The diverse content of the Devotional and Pilgrimage Images draws an impressive picture of the encounter of religious trends and their hybrid forms in late nineteenth-century Japan - on view until 17.5.15 in Zurich (CH).

The correspondent publication presents the technical, social and religious aspects of the scrolls and explains their significance in rites and pilgrimages in Japan at the time and today.

Ann Wolff - Persona

On view at Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, Munich

The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung dedicates the second project in its exhibition series MASTER | MEISTER to the German-Swedish artist Ann Wolff (b. 1937). Its focus is on those sculptures that Ann Wolff created in the last five years specifically for this exhibition. On view in the garden is a new aluminum sculpture, older works as well as pastel drawings.

Ann Wolff is one of the most important and striking artists to use the expressive diversity of the material glass in a new and virtuoso manner. Continually exploring the existential questions of being human is an important and fundamental driving force for her work.

The exhibition is on view until 12.6.2015 in Munich. For a glimpse at Ann Wolff's oeuvre please follow this link

With his avant-garde understanding of jewellery, he creates unique objects from acrylic, glass, steel, pewter, aluminium, and the synthetic material Corian.
