Ute Eitzenhöfer: Subtext
- Ute Eitzenhöfer’s impressive works establish a relation between eternal precious materials and our fast-paced present
- Jewelry and gemstone art with a socio-critical bent
- Featuring an essay by Wilhelm Lindemann discussing the works from a cultural-historical perspective
That Ute Eitzenhöfer’s jewelry is related to contemporary phenomena is beyond any doubt. The longevity of precious metals and stones is juxtaposed with the rapid development of social realities — or with our increasingly overwhelmed perception of them. In particular, our power and powerlessness in dealing with meanwhile highly complex communication are a source of inspiration for her works. The seemingly timeless aesthetics of the minimalist-looking pieces of jewelry nevertheless open up to a variety of perspectives: when worn, they encourage us as wearers or beholders to engage in dialog and bring about an immediate exchange.
