The main task of Studio Violet is to advise contemporary artists on the production and the development of their artworks. The studio offers tailor-made solutions to suit the artist’s needs and provides complete artwork planning and production. At present, this mainly concerns the construction of unique pieces, prototypes, and editions in different degrees of materiality, shapes, and sizes. Such a process, however complex, implies an understanding of materials and production methods from handcraft to industrial processes. Besides the above mentioned possibilities, we help to realize intricate installations as well as smaller delicate objects. The studio works out specialized planning and aftercare for galleries and exhibition spaces and consults on specific production processes and technical preparations for an individual artistic practice.
