Stefanie Hering (b. 1967) is among the most innovative porcelain designers worldwide. In the spring of 2015 she provided the porcelain for the G7 summit at Schloss Elmau in Bavaria. Hering's designs meet the contemporary requirements of a globalised culinary art. Her distinctive pieces with their delicate decorations are in great demand with collectors and top chefs alike.

LEIKO IKEMURA - BY THE WAY, I OFTEN DREAM OF HOUSES AND WATERS
Paintings, sculptures, poems
The Japanese artist Leiko Ikemura was eighteen years old when she left the country of her birth. She studied art and literature in Europe. From Spain she moved first to Switzerland and from there on to Germany. Her international career began in Cologne. For a professorship in painting she later moved to Berlin, where she lives and works today.
Today, after a phase of critical distance, Ikemura opens up in her poetically sensitive picture, in her sculptures as well as her poems to the deeper aspects of an existence that is at home everywhere and nowhere. The exhibition focuses on her most recent works but also on those from the 1990s. Being a stranger between cultures is reflected on many levels. Water and body and placeless spaces are recurring motifs in her work.
