There's a new exhibition on soon at Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich, featuring some astounding pieces of wearable sculpture by Austrian designer and jeweller Peter Skubic.
The exhibition runs from the 19th of March to the 15th of May and features selected works from all phases of Skubic's career – including many pieces currently in private ownership - which together to present a multifaceted picture of his career.
These images are just a glimpse of the unerring radicality; sometimes taken to the extreme of physical injury, which lies at the heart of of Skubic's design principles.
Creating jewellery as if undertaking an experiment, a sculptural, or performative statement, this collection straddles the borders between different genres, as a physical task and creative, liberating act.
With work ranging from erotically formed sculptural rings to clamp brooches, balancing and mirroring objects, as well as works with 'invisible jewellery' and relics from performances saved like religious artefacts, this is a must see for anyone who appreciates bodily adornments as contemporary art.
