EN/GR Use jewlery as a message that can travel very far and very fast and can reach an audience you would never have thought it gives a hoot about ornament! This is the idea behind the project “Myths 2016 – Test Drive”. Read the message 23 members of Berlin based  Thikwa Werkstatt für Theater und Kunst send to our “Test Drivers” of Munich Jewellery Week.

Jewlery by Thikwa Werkstatt für Theater und Kunst shown at “Myths 2016 – Test Drive” was made by the following artists:

Addas Ahmad; Sabrina Braemer, Heidi Bruck, Marieta Campos Gisbert, Jonny Chambilla, Kristin Feuerer,  Nils Kristian Gruner- Olsen, Johanna Kirsten, Ayla Look, Álvaro Martínez Alonso, Katharina Maasberg, Lia Masseti, Paula Moré,  Martina Nitz, Peter Pankow, Tim Petersen, Laura Rammo, Mereika Schulz, Ralph Schumacher, Hilarius Urban, Sophie Weber, Wolfgang Weichert, Christian Wollert.

– How did you experience working with the art medium „jewlery“?

Loukia Richards told us of her jewlery project which dealt with mythology and Europe. We thought it was very interesting and started our research on jewlery. We got involved in it very fast and our work came immediately in flow. The experience was delightful and the most beautiful part of it was that we worked as a team. When you see a jewel made by Thikwa, you get an artwork made by various artists.

– Do you wear your jewlery outside the Thikwa Werkstatt as well?

Yes, sometimes we do. Jewlery does not always match our clothes, but we are aware of jewlery anyway.

– If jewlery were a letter, what would you like your message to read like?

Love, coldness, warmth, awareness, glamour, people.

– What are your next plans?

We are planning to work with photography, music and landscape art.

Το εργαστήριο Τίκβα στο Βερολίνο είναι διάσημο στη διεθνή σκηνή του θεάτρου και της τέχνης και έχει αποσπάσει πλήθος βραβείων. Δεν θα αναφερθούμε στην ιδιαιτερότητα των καλλιτεχνών του, γιατί όλοι οι καλλιτέχνες έχουν μία ιδιαιτερότητα. Είναι η τρίτη φορα που συνεργαζόμαστε με την ομάδα και είμαστε ευτυχείς με το αποτέλεσμα. Παρουσιάζουμε τα κοσμήματα της ομάδας Τίκβα στο Τεστ Ντράιβ σε λίγες ημέρες στο Μόναχο. Οι καλλιτέχνες απάντησαν στις ερωτήσεις μας και μας είπαν ότι ήταν γράμμα το κόσμημα τους θα μιλούσε για την αγάπη, το κρύο, την ζέστη, τη συνειδητοποίηση, την λάμψη και τους ανθρώπους. Το πιο όμορφο στοιχείο του πρότζεκτ ήταν η ομαδική δουλειά, τόνισαν.SnapShot 2016-02-21 um 12.47.48
