Opening hours: 23—24 September 2023, 10 am —5 pm
We are very pleased to continue our exhibition series arnoldsche weekend art gallery with two exceptional positions of contemporary jewelry and ceramic art from Israel and Germany.
Monika Debus’ ceramics captivate with their strong abstract-organic and physical presence as well as with their paintwork in gestural lineatures and flowing compositions reminiscent of Informalism and Japanese calligraphy. The softly contoured objects in the salt firing technique are vessel, sculpture, and painting at the same time and form aesthetically supreme examples of contemporary ceramic art of the first rank.
Deganit Stern Schocken is one of the most prominent voices in contemporary jewelry art in Israel. In our exhibition, we present works from her new series „Caution, Sharp Edges“ and from earlier creative phases. Her oeuvre revolves around the themes of individuality and collectivity, architecture and space, as well as aesthetics and ethics. Being a critical artist, she consciously takes a stand on socio-political issues and urgently calls for a peaceful coexistence in the Middle East conflict and worldwide.
