MATRIX 20 RELOADED. A beautiful, interdisciplinary project by design studio Matrix to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
In the past two decades, a large collection of scarves, serving trays, wallpapers and building exteriors has been gathering at the archive of the design studio Matrix in Basel. 2015, over a dozen artists, architects and musicians were invited to reinterpret and revise one of ten selected objects in the collection. Together with photographer Christian Metzler we received a carte blanche to develop a concept to visualise and stage each piece in the collection and produce a series of ten pictures for which I also did the styling. Besides the exhibition there will be 500 posters spread all over Basel a book and a sound performance.

It is always a pleasure to work with the passionated!

MATRIX 20 RELOADED at RappazMuseum, Klingental 11, Basel, Switzerland.

Exhibition from 14. – 28. June 2015.

Here you`ll find the collection that brought me to the ITS finals 2014.

As a finalist in the ARTWORK category Swatch offered me the opportunity to depict and

“The ITS2014 finalists have been announced and I am among the 10 selected for the Artwork category! I am incredibly happy and excited! Now there will be an intense and busy time ahead where i will finish my Artwork  for the upcoming finals in Trieste, Italy in July. The Artwork category is sponsored by SWATCH so I will dive deep into the last 30+ years of watch design, technology and art. It´s going to be mega fun!

“The collection is inspired by the movie Dead Man (1995 by Jim Jarmusch). William Blake, played by Johnny Depp travels into the western frontiers of America during the 2nd half of the 19th century.  The set design, the costumes and the music emphasize the surrealistic mood of the story.
The centre of the collection is the Bolo Tie. A type of jewellery which is deeply connected to the myth of cowboys and Wild West. Using the principle of the Bolo tie I developed a collection of seven pieces. Four necklaces a bracelet a ring and cuffs connected with cuff links.
The collection refers to the modern outlaw in the sense that he is a non-conformist who sets a statement with his way of life and style.”
