Curated by ZLR Betriebsimperium and supported by the City of Munich, “The Sacred & The Profane” group exhibition, running from March 14 through March 17, 2019, at Galerie Weltraum, Munich, will examine the ambiguity of objects and rituals.

Fourteen contemporary artists from different backgrounds, delighted in the controversy and artistic debate, join forces to explore an extensive list of tormenting issues and concerns; “the beauty of daemons and saints, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, faith and suffering, fall and resurrection, ecstasies and self-annihilation, rebirth through recycling, the cult of kitsch objects, votives for a Godless spirituality, destruction of memories, the jewelers’ hell, religion and hate, emotions and the genesis of symbols.”

The list of the jewelry show’s participating artists includes Alexandra Hopp, Anna Watson, Andreas Ohrenschall, Bettina Ulitzka, Bruna Hauert, Camilla Luihn, Christoph Ziegler, Daniel von Weinberger, Hilde Dramstad, Linda Savineau, Loukia Richards, Ludwig Menzel, Margarita Malliri and Ria Lins.

Since its founding in 2013 by Loukia Richards and Christoph ZieglerZLR Betriebsimperium has managed to successfully design, curate and organize a plethora of thought-provoking interdisciplinary projects, usually inspired by Greek culture. The team’s projects combine jewelry art with installation, dance, music, art theory, performance, and textile art. Their most recent project, “The Sacred & The Profane,” was born in Arcadia, Greece, during a workshop.
