Yong Joo Kim / Kasimir Oppermann
June 19 to July 25
Yong Joo Kim and Kasimir Oppermann couldn't be more different at first sight. Yong Joo is a young Korean artist who studied contemporary jewellery in the USA and now teaches at the art academy in Korea. Her works are made of Velcro Hoop-and-Look fasteners. Kasimir was a master student of Joseph Beuys and lives as a freelance artist in Hanover. His work material is glass beads, from which he creates big jewellery objects in the most elaborate handcraft. What the two have in common, however, is their attitude to the body and the vivid, softness in their oeuvre. The jewelry objects captivate by their lightness and the resulting volume that plays around the body. The surfaces are textile-like, colourful and malleable and thus also a haptic experience.
