SODAwise – Istanbul

Published Jun 09, 2011


As part of the SODAwise discussion series, SODA continues to bring together creative souls from different disciplines and careers to share and discuss various topics.

SODA will be entertained by the presence of Margit Hart and Fritz Maierhofer – two prominent names in Contemporary Art Jewellery – on Tuesday, June 14th 2011 at 18:00. Our two main speakers from Austria will discuss and share their knowledge and experiences and present examples of their artwork in the discussion titled “Nature and Structure”.


A graduate of State University of New York and someone who has participated in many important exhibitons and fairs, what matters most for Margit Hart is that people can wear her jewelry art. Her primary concern resides not so much in creating an item of jewelry or merely depicting forms and shapes than in exploring the relationship – and interplay – between the human body, jewelry and the environment.


Fritz Maierhofer’s work exists in a world that is vibrant and diverse. He is not the kind of artist who, having come across a successful idea, gladly replicates it ad infinitum. Improving and developing his work since the 1970’s, he is constantly discovering new materials, absorbing new inspiration into his work.
