The work chupa chups (love edition) refers with its title to the well-known sugar product under the same name.
„Not the flashy and spectacular, but the subtle and easy to overlook is brought to the foreground by Susan Pietzsch with aesthetic sensitivity.
The familiar she shows in an unfamiliar perspective, putting everyday things in a new context and questioning traditional values in order to sensitize the viewer’s consciousness and break conventional thinking patterns.“
„By juggling with materials, functions and values, the artist creates pieces of jewellery as well as objects to which the function of jewellery can no longer be assigned.“
(Anne Schloen from the book „Kostbarkeiten – かけがえのないもの“)
