With ‘Tortoise’ the New York artist has returned to the workshop of the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg a good decade after his successful start in 1999. As with his earlier designs the artistic demands stand in the foreground: Muehling reduces, abstracts and translates the natural form of the faceted armour to the matt white porcelain. In this way, the renowned once again successfully captures the play on light and shadow in the unique transparency of the Numphenburg porcelain, which is hand-crafted step by step.  (Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg press)

‘Tortoises are survivors from past times’, says Ted Muehling.  He has been fascinated by these majestic creatures since his childhood. So much so, that he has now devoted an entire collection to them.  ‘Tortoise’ – a series of vases of different sizes, a bowl, a bonbonniere and two different drinking vessels made of razor-thin biscuit porcelain from the master workshop of Numphenburg; matte on the outside, glazed on the inside. Together with the experts in products development, he realised the new objects for Tortoise in just one and a half years – handmade artefacts, shaped with passion, perfection and poetry.

a performance by the artist Eglė Budvytytė took place in the garden. The performers/players worn ‘Mongolian Dragging Hoodies’. Produced together with fashion designer Andrea Kränzlin, the hoodies are inspired by attire worn by Mongolian fighters. Originally designed for practicality, the artist had these Hoodies specially-made to protect the heads, necks and shoulders of the performers in her piece Some were carried, some – dragged behind for Kunstverein München’s Akardendinner. Budvytytė has had each of the Hoodies – one of each of the performers – remade as a unique edition of 5.
