Galerie BSL is presenting Kathy Ludwig’s ‘Hosting Parasites,’ a collection of performative jewellery belonging to the realms of art which earned her a first class honours degree from the Design Academy Eindhoven. ‘The objects that I create are intriguing, attractive and maybe even repulsive, provoking contradictory sentiments and raising questions. Their interaction with the body makes certain values or demeanour tangible. A living sculpture is formed from their unison.’
Both earthly and heavenly, Alina Alamorean’s work is first and foremost a burst of energy.

Double edged rebellion and flight inspire resolutely non-conventional, rigorous yet emotional pieces, where the space is as important as the mass itself.

God the creator, messenger of the principle of the eternal return in Ancient Egypt*, collected by collectors of curio, used by contemporary artists like Jan Fabre, the scarab has maintained an element of fascination with its plastic and magical character. Here Lito Karakostanoglou offers a resolutely contemporary resurrection: jewellery, the design piece to wear, in a collection of unique pieces presented and edited by the galerie BSL. For the very first time, real preserved scarabs are used in this way and arranged, housed in amazing cage necklaces or zoomorph inspired settings for earrings.
