Description

RMIT University School of Art – Gold & Silversmithing Studio Lecture Series.

This summer we are pleased to welcome Daniel Kruger to present his lecture at RMIT University. This lecture is open to the public and students and will be presented during his solo exhibition in Australia at Gallery Funaki

Born in South Africa, living and working in Berlin, Daniel Kruger is an artist who specialises in jewelry since 1972. Between 1984 to 2005 Kruger worked as well on series of ceramics, principally during residencies at the worldly renowned EKWC (European Ceramic Workcentre in 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands). Relying on a broad array of skills and techniques Kruger reveals in his practice an eclectic world in which historical references and popular culture, painting and knitting, Africa and Europe, necklaces and tureens mingle joyfully. The guiding principle of his forty years of career can be found in his enthusiastic and witty approach of ornament and adornment in both disciplines. His jewels are technical feat in which gold, silk, pearls, stones and pigments come alive when worn. His ceramics are standing like trophies celebrating beauty, youth, and exuberance.

During 2014 and 2015, museums in Leipzig, Pforzheim, Hanau and 's-Hertogenbosch have hosted major retrospective exhibitions of Daniel Kruger’s works from both disciplines.
