Karl Fritsch: Scenes from the Munich Diamond Disaster

20 November 2010–16 January 2011

Karl Fritsch is known for his irreverent handling of precious materials. The Wellington-based German  jeweller marries cheap and precious materials, makes new pieces from discarded ones, and glues uncut gemstones together. He challenges our idea of beauty and our expectations of jewellery.
