LONDON.- Ute Decker’s work has a contemporary yet somehow timeless feel. Her pieces are not so much literal re-interpretations of actual edifices but rather wearable sculptures suggestive of an architectural language of forms.

This July, the London Festival of Architecture showcases a solo exhibition of her signature one-of-a-kind and small-series pieces in recycled silver and Fairtrade gold.

Ute Decker’s work has a contemporary yet somehow timeless feel. Her pieces are not so much literal re-interpretations of actual edifices but rather wearable sculptures suggestive of an architectural language of forms.

Her use of minimalist shapes, clean lines, exquisite surface textures and the treatment of empty space give her work a powerful presence.

Yet, it is equally in the context created by her exploration of sustainable jewellery making and the interaction with the human body that her wearable sculptures invite a broader dialogue.

“Recognising that we are as much sensory, as cognitive, rational creatures the relation of ethics and aesthetics in artefacts and the built environment has interested me for a long time. It is this question of ‘social beauty’ - the relation between inner and outer beauty - I explore in my work.”

Following a series of shows in Paris, Tokyo, Amsterdam and New York, Ute Decker’s work can be seen in London at three selling exhibitions this summer: 13 – 17 June at the Goldsmiths’ Pavilion, Somerset House, 15 – 17 June at the Cockpit Arts Open Studios in Holborn and 3 – 8 July in the Corner Shop Gallery on Clerkenwell Green as part of the London Festival of Architecture.
