Full Description
The intention of Reinhold Ziegler's jewellery objects is to move the attention of the wearer or onlooker from themselves onto something greater - a radical strategy within a field that is strongly occupied with emphasising the individuality of the wearer. Ziegler's art is influenced by the French philosopher Georges Bataille, who in his work Eroticism identifies a strong dilemma in humanity in which, on one hand, we want to fight for our individuality yet, at the same time, have a strong desire to be united with what he calls 'everything that is'. In this book, Ziegler deals with this topic from many angles - gravitation, vibration, meteorites, fossils, and general aspects of humanity such as tools (from the Stone Age), talismans, spirituality, and consciousness.
