“The Talk” was an installation that was on show at the a href=”http://fridaygallery.com/”>Friday Gallery, Munich during Munich Jewellery Week from 24 Feb to 1 March. In a dialogue with the South African artist Allun Turner I have been creating jewellery objects, textures and masks from newspaper. Over the course of several weeks I got the chance to dive deeper into my favorite subject – words and gestures. Here are a few impressions:

clouds made from waste: Installation with ISPO Tandem Space
For seven exiting days, I have been part of the ISPO Tandem Space team that turns waste of the huge ISPO sports fair in Munich into a unique floating installation. Plastic foil of the ISPO exhibitors was used to stuff old textiles and form cloud shaped objects. During ISPO opening hours, the clouds got covered by the artwork of Adam Hartshorne, MAJILINA, Miguel Panadero Escala, Rafa Moreno-Tapia and me.
Work in Progress.
Tandem Space is the brainchild of Rafa Moreno-Tapia and Miguel Panadero. The Spanish artists have been realizing recycling art projects with ISPO for three years now, each time collaborating with different artists of different European countries. I met them at Stroke Ltd last October and was happy to be invited to join a process that is perfectly in line with my other work.

I painted and scribbled on some of “my clouds”, on others I used cardboard or paper to create interesting textures. The surface of my favourite piece was made with plastic chords.

The cloud installation is planned to be exhibited once more at Stroke Artfair in May 2016. Finally, the individual pieces will be sold in an auction with the benefits going to Movember Foundation.
I have filled empty cereal boxes and other cardboard containers with silence. They are brimming with the same perfect stillness. But the packaging differs: There are pictures from the local train station, from the sky above the churches, or from corridors of administration buildings. They put different labels onto the silence.
When you listen to this sound system you can hear your own projected noise and assessments. The projections are wrapped around stillness. As it is in real life..
My sound system will be part of the upcoming exhibition in the town hall of Neufahrn. Outside of the garage atmosphere it will sound very different, I guess.
