Essay

'Fremd-Körper'

In this jewellery series, Christoph Zellweger combines materials strongly reminiscent of a medical environment, either in the form of organic stainless steel parts, adapted artificial hip joints or leather straps with all the firmness of oldfashioned orthopaedic supports. This imposition of an aesthetic with a markedly conceptual character is frightening because of its unusual immediacy. Here the jury sees this work as a challenging extension of the concept of jewellery.
