Invited by Ingo Maurer, on the occasion of Munich Creative Business Week – one of the most important design events in Germany – I will be putting on a solo exhibition of my creations at the maestro’s showroom in Munich: design objects and artworks will be on display at Kaiserstrasse 47 from Saturday 3 March until Tuesday 24 April 2018.
In the late renaissance period, wonderful containers appeared which aimed to hold “the world around us” within them – they were Wunderkammer, the sixteenth-century cabinets of curiosities which brought together nature and oddities, the fantastical and the imaginative, intrigue and mystery. It is a modern reinterpretation of these Wunderkammer which forms the main theme of this exhibition, an image both refined and suggestive which is perfectly expressed by the title chosen for this solo exhibition: Kristalline Wunderkammer.
My exhibition in Ingo Maurer’s showroom is, in effect, none other than a mysterious and compelling modern-day Wunderkammer, made entirely out of glass and featuring refined bonsai pieces and stupefying trees, majestic deer and crystalline fish, headless hens and sprawling octopi: a world inspired by nature, in which wonder rules.
I will attend the official opening on March 6th at 6.00pm.
The gallery will be open from 3 March to 4 April with free entry.
