Mari Ishikawa sees a parallel world off the beaten track of everyday living, which she wants to make visible with her art. Such counter-worlds are discovered in photographs with long exposures, which are taken up in art jewellery. Together these pairings result in an overall picture that is almost mystical. Silver casts taken from nature are reborn as jewellery in combination with diamonds, charcoal, or paper. Thus Mari Ishikawa interrupts for a brief moment the flow of transience; a precious object is created that has been wrenched from the cycle of life and death to stand for itself and for the moment.
Mari Ishikawa is represented in leading museums worldwide, for example Ville de Cagnes-sur-Mer (FR) Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (DE), Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus Hanau (DE), GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts Leipzig (DE), Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich (DE), Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (DE), Museo degli Argenti, Florence (IT), Hiko Mizuno Collection, Tokyo (JP), Victoria & Albert Museum, London (GB), Dallas Museum of Art (US), MAD – The Museum of Arts and Design, New York City (US), Helen W.
