The goldsmith and sculptor Ruan Weng Mong is a mediator between different worlds: born in Taiwan and trained as a goldsmith in Germany, as well as serving as President of the Goldsmiths’ Guild in Nuremberg for many years, he is at home on several continents.

His artworks elegantly wed his sensibility for materials and his appreciation of (gem)stones and metal to clear-cut shapes that connote both a European and an Asian formal idiom. While working as an instructor and lecturer in Taiwan, he was one of the first to introduce international contemporary jewellery to Taiwan, and contributed towards paving the way for the inspirational, top-level international exchange of ideas that is taking place there nowadays. The exhibition will be showcasing about 140 of his works in the genres of jewellery, sculpture and graphic art, created over a period of more than 40 years. This is the first time that contemporary Taiwanese-Asian jewellery and artistically created objects will be shown in Germany.
