The uniqueness of Silke Trekel (*1969) lies in the melding of
artisan skills and awareness with a particular sensibility for the
character and texture of the inherent quality of her materials.
Whether industrial or organic, they play a crucial role in her
designs. The many travels of the Halle-educated artist broadened
her perspectives, validating them in a concept of jewelry fed
by universal symbolic metaphors of form. The publication gives
a first in-depth account of her development, of this dialogue
between abstraction and ornamental tradition: Ornament in Transition. In fact Trekel invites us to rethink, for her work unites motifs
and guiding concepts, which galvanized twentieth-century art—between
sculptural spatial configurations and signs held in suspension.
Trekel takes an active part in this story.
