From Jewellery to Contextual Art / Vom Schmuck zur Kontextuellen Kunst
- First comprehensive monograph on Elisabeth Holder’s work
- Discusses jewelry and adornment beyond the human body
- Jewelry in connection with architecture and nature
From Jewellery to Contextual Art presents the work of the artist and professor Elisabeth Holder and showcases her unique evolution. Coming from a classical goldsmithing background, she placed jewelry in relation to ancient signs and the ornamentation that emerged from them, pursuing the examination of materials in the charged arena between mastery and dialogue, and posing the fundamental question of what jewelry is and can be. This led to a paradigm shift. Jewelry was recontextualized. Illustrated with examples from fields such as architecture and nature, it becomes clear that such jewelry forms are never excessive and are at once Contextual art.
