PRESENTATION OF WORKS PRODUCED BY THE ARTIST LENKA KÜHNERTOVÁ DURING HER ARTISTIC RESIDENCY AT THE HAUTE ÉCOLE DES ARTS DU RHIN IN STRASBOURG, ACCOMPANIED BY THE WORKS PRODUCED BY THE STUDENTS DURING THE WORKSHOP THAT SHE LED.

THE WORKSHOP WAS INSPIRED BY THE WORK OF THE SOUTH GERMAN ARTIST MANFRED BISCHOFF (1947–2015). BISCHOFF COMBINED HIS VISUAL ART – DRAWINGS – WITH THE CRAFT OF JEWELRY IN HIS WORK AND TRANSLATED THEM INTO MAGNIFICENT JEWELRY MINIATURES AS A GOLDSMITH.

STUDENTS’ DRAWINGS WERE CREATED DURING THE FIRST THREE DAYS OF THE WORKSHOP, THE PATTERNS AND TOOLS WERE CHOSEN FREELY. THEY WERE EVERYDAY OBJECTS, SITUATIONS, A SENTENCE OR EVEN FANTASTIC DRAWINGS.

FROM MID-NOVEMBER TO THE END OF DECEMBER 2018, THE DRAWINGS WERE TRANSFORMED BY THE STUDENTS INTO SCULPTURES – IN PAPER, CERAMICS, PORCELAIN, TEXTILES OR OTHER MATERIALS…

DURING THIS PERIOD, I WAS AT THE DISPOSAL OF 8 STUDENTS (DIFFERENT PROFESSIONS: JEWELRY / SCENOGRAPHY / ILLUSTRATION / PAINTING / GRAPHIC DESIGN), TO SUPPORT THEM IN THIS TRANSFORMATION.

THE COURSE ENDED WITH AN EXHIBITION AT THE END OF JANUARY 2019, WHERE THE DRAWN WORKS WERE EXHIBITED BOTH IN DIALOGUE WITH THE FIGURES, AND WITH THE WORKS OF THE ARTIST, PRODUCED DURING HIS RESIDENCY AT HEAR IN STRASBOURG.

WITH MANON POURCHER (ART-OBJECT, JEWELRY), ELENA LEBRUN (SCENOGRAPHY), CAMILLE MEYER (ILLUSTRATION), ZOÉ KINER WOLFF (ART-OBJECT, JEWELRY), ELOÏSE VO (COMMUNICATION DESIGN), JULES BOUCAUD (ART, PAINTING), MÉLISSA LECHEA (SCENOGRAPHY) AND YVANNE LAURENT (ART-OBJECT, JEWELRY).

PRODUCED AS PART OF THE RESIDENT ARTIST PLACEMENTS OF THE CITY OF STRASBOURG AND WITH THE SUPPORT OF HEAR AND THE CITY OF STUTTGART.
