Gisbert Stach’s (b. 1963) monograph Jewellery and Experiment
presents a multifaceted opus from twenty-five years of gold- and silversmithing. In
Gisbert Stach’s oeuvre the primarily conceptual artist combines jewellery with video,
photography and performance. One focus of Gisbert Stach’s work deals with processes
of transformation and experiment – pieces disappear through chemical
dissolution, and form is determined by agencies of growth in nature.
Stach works with means of alienation and irritation. Ground amber
serves as pigment, which he works into jewellery pieces in the form of fish
fingers, sliced bread or schnitzel. A further characteristic of his work is the
performative act, for example when brooches are pelted with knives.

Gisbert Stach is represented in numerous museums and collections, including Die Neue
Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich (DE); Fondazione Cominelli, Brescia (IT); Museo
de Arte Moderno, Tarragona (ES); Museum of Arts & Crafts, Itami (JP); Gallery of Art,
Legnica (PL); Museum of Bohemian Paradise, Turnov (CZ); Amber Museum, Gdansk (PL).
