Contemporary jewellery artists defy stereotypes regarding modelling – otherwise they would not have been “artists”.
My mother is not just an old lady modelling my latest piece “St.Barbara-Patron saint of artillerists” (left) and Christoph Ziegler’s “Fragments” (right) – both to be viewed at WAR_POLEMOS, 11-14 March 2020 at Galerie WELTRAUM, Munich; she is a person suffering of chronic depression since her early 20s. The disease is considered a social stigma in many parts of our -so called civilized – world.
Through this shooting Christoph Ziegler – who is the author of these pictures – and I wanted to send a message of encouragement to all people fighting against this horrible disease and their relatives and friends supporting them; these are the new “role-models” for a more tender, more sensitive, more civilized society.
The art project WARPOLEMOS is supported/funded by the City of Munich (2020).
Thank you for caring!
