“Every piece has a story, a journey to become what it is. We believe that objects, drawings, sketches- the things we create while making the actual jewellery- are as important as the finished pieces themselves. Through them, we study material, from meaning. They lead us to the essence of our creations.”

– Natascha Frechen, Felicia Mülbaier, Constanza Salinas & Luisa Werner

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication that will be launched at a public presentation and a talk with the artists on August 14 in the courtyard of Hobusepea 2 studio house.
