MAX BORKA ABOUT ALEXA LIXFELD:

"I PRODUCE CULTURE," SAYS ALEXA LIXFELD.`CROSS-CULTURE`WOULD BE BETTER. WHETHER IT`S A PROJECT IN WHICH SHE TRIES TO USE CONCRETE AS AN ALTERNATIVE FOR CERAMICS IN HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS, A PERFUME, FOOD-DESIGN, AN EAT-ART PERFORMANCE IN WHICH THE PARTICIPANTS LADLE SOUP FROM A PLATE WITH A 1,4 METER DIAMETER, OR A SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION SHE SET UP IN SRI LANKA, TO HELP CHILDREN AND RUAL WOMEN - SHE OFTEN SEEMS TO GO FOR A CHALLENGE THAT OTHERS THINK IMPOSSIBLE. IN CREACETE™ SHE COMBINED HER PIONEERING EXPERIMENTS WITH CONCRETE IN THE FIELD OF TABLEWARE WITH THE ULTIMATE IN FINISHING, THE TRADITIONAL JAPANESE URUSHI LACQUERING TECHNIQUE FROM WAJIMA, WHILE LEAVING THE CONTRAST OPEN AND VISIBLE. AFTER A TEN-YEAR CAREER AS A MODEL, ALEXA LIXFELD STUDIED AT KÖLN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF DESIGN, UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED ARTS PFORZHEIM AND DESIGN ACADEMY EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS. SHE WORKS IN HAMBURG SINCE 2006, RUNNING HER OWN STUDIO.



PROF. AXEL KUFUS ABOUT ALEXA LIXFELD:

ATTRACTED BY THE CLASSICAL, AND IN WONDROUS WAYS TENSION-LOADED FORMS AND PROPORTIONS OF HER VESSELS AND OBJECTS, WE LITERALLY DISCOVER THE TANGIBLE QUALITIES OF THE MATERIAL WHICH WAS OTHERWISE TRAMPLED UNDER OUR FEET: THE GRANULATIONS, STAINS AND SPURES LEFT FROM THE CASTING, THE DRYING AND CRAZES, THE BURRS AND FRACTURES OF THE MOULD REMOVAL, THE SO-CALLED FLAWS OF THE MOLDING PROCESS. AND CONCOMITANTLY HER HANDLING THEM, THE CONCRETION AND PORTS. BRIEFLY: THE CULTIVATION OF PECULIARITIES OF THE MATERIAL AND ITS PROCESS OF MANUFACTURE, CREATES A NEW VALUE BY MAGNITUDES, WHICH WE NEVER THOUGHT TO BE POSSIBLE WITH THIS MASS. THE INTERACTION WITH THE MATERIAL IS INNOVATIVE, EXEMPLARY AND YIELDS IN SUSTAINABILITY.
