Margit Jäschke, 2020, Germany


The artist Margit Jäschke (b. Halle / Saale, 1962; lives and works in Halle) describes herself as a wanderer between the worlds of different arts. Defying the conventional bounds of installation, painting, sculpture, and jewelry design, she has created an entirely distinctive oeuvre with fascinating forms, deliberately blurring the distinction between wearable ornament and autonomous art. Details become meaningful, evoking a variety of associations in the beholder. The jewelry object reveals vistas of fantastic worlds and conjures up what had been forgotten. It is in the eye of the beholder to discover this.
