Interview to Minna Markkanen
What there is local in my jewelry is the use of materials that come near. I mainly go pick my own stones from a near-by quarry, and use old wood that I find near. Universal aspect of my jewelry are the emotions they are based on, we all feel feelings of melancholy, and other humane feelings that are strongly present in my work, no matter where we are located on the globe.

A Misunderstanding or Backwardness: Why Some Galleries at SCHMUCK 2014 Lagged Behind Others
I would like to share my experience on the year’s event in the field of contemporary and conceptual jewelry – SCHMUCK-2014 in Munich. The fact that completely shocked me is the prohibition to take photos in the galleries. We, as gallery representatives, went there to get to know new designers and artists and their works, to purchase their works for our collection, to meet our friends and gain new contacts, which come in handy during discussions as well as when organizing new exhibitions.

My inspiration doesn’t come just from one place – I find it everywhere. I try to be open in the moment and tap into the world around me – then capturing that moment, translating it into my work.

As her introduction in the gallery, Kessler shows pieces from the last two, three years, that testify to her inquisitive, inquiring mind. Also another, extremely important aspect of her work manifests itself in the exhibition: she is an artist who mananges to grant her pieces a poetic quality without having to refer to anecdotes and references.

Galerie Rob Koudijs

With this special exhibition, the artist celebrates the fact that she has been working as an artist for ten years. During all this time she had many idea's that were never carried out and the present show was the right occasion to catch up on them. Of course it didn't turn into a reassuring sentimental journey, conveniently following trodden paths: a decade of experience gave her wings and the necessary command and daring.

The exhibition shows work made between the 1970s and 1990s. The emphasis of the early work was on how the identity of a piece of jewellery could be changed when it was handled or worn.

I often love to start working based on the material. I think it is my main purpose to let the feelings I've felt during the work process show through in the jewellery, maybe in visual ways, or maybe in ways only the one who wears it will know.
Corrado de Meo
New Member at Klimt02
The first cognitive act that I do in front of whatever object is the definition of its volumes and to follow its design in space and to define in its forms exposed to light; what follows is the desire to harmonize those analyzed forms within their structure, in another very complex form as that of human body.
