Please join us for an afternoon with visiting artist Jasmin Matzakow.

Sunday, March 24, at 3pm In the Gallery at Brooklyn Metal Works.

Matzakow will be discussing recent work, including her series Ecotechnomagic, which encourages a shift in perspective through the use of stinging nettles, “a material that exists outside of our financial system and still provides something to people.”

Jasmin Matzakow apprenticed to a goldsmith for one year before attending the jewelry program of Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle, where she received her Diploma of Arts in 2010. In 2008, Matzakow co-founded Schmuckkantine, a platform that organized workshops, exhibitions and catalogues. Matzakow received her MFA from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts, and Design in 2015. 

Jasmin Matzakow’s most recent solo exhibition, DURCHBRENNEN, was at Gallery Maurer Zilioli Contemporary Arts during Munich Jewelry Week 2018. Her work can also be found at Gallery Ra and Gallery Platina. Matzakow lives and works in Germany and is assistant professor for jewelry and hollowware at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich for professor Karen Pontoppidan.
