EVENT DESCRIPTIONS
AJF Live with Peter Bauhuis

Wednesday, May 12, at 12 p.m. EST

German artist Peter Bauhuis is celebrating spring 2021 with a new series of tiny pins: Fliege/Fly. Patti Bleicher, the owner of Gallery Loupe, will talk with him about this series and others that have led up to it.

Bauhuis’s work asks the question, “What happens then, actually, when a fly buzzes through the air, settles down on the body, and hardens into a brooch? The question generates a train of further questions. Can something that is abhorrent become jewelry? Can something that is nauseating be made to feel attractive? Can something that is not only valueless like fluff, but explicitly associated with negativity, like the fly, which was in fact long regarded as vermin or a descendant of hell, become a fountainhead of forms for jewelry? Such are the questions pursued by Peter Bahuis in his latest brooches.” (From page 19 of Fliege, a 64-page publication in both an English and German edition that includes an essay by Pravu Mazumdar, calligraphy by Mirei Takeuchi, illustrations by Ulrike Steinke, and pictures, collages, sketches, drawings, and additional text by Peter Bauhuis.)
