Marie Grewenig, 2016, Germany


For my jewellery I use the means of expression which I know best and which is the most intimate – my body. Using my body I can visualise gestures, sentiments, and emotions that are associated with different meanings. I try to focus on parts, gestures or on actions, which seem to be profane and self-evident. The resulting imprints of the body form new bodies. They seem familiar but also strange and vague at the same time.

On the subject of BONDS, I focused on the act of listening. Listening is the basis of our daily communication and an important connection for our daily cooperation. It is too often judged as natural and is not esteemed. By my work I emphasise the good listening and appreciation for it.
