Gésine Hackenberg, Dutch of German origins, explores the conceptual intersections between jewellery and everyday objects. Her latest research aims to investigate how one’s mood or a specific cultural context may influence an ornament in its specific form, also involving its semantic component. The circular movement theme, a vortex that keeps its balance axis, recalls the dance of the dervishes and the classical ballet pirouettes, east and west, down to the very technique of the ceramist rotating clay. This repeated action becomes a meditative act and her ceramics acquire the character of objects in space for which shape is movement, present and dominating in Nature, in the water vortexes, in the rotation of the planets, in sacred dances.
