Christophe Burger

Portrait Christophe BurgerChristophe Burger is a jewelry designer and artist born in 1950 in Colmar, France. After a master's degree in English linguistics, he studied jewelry design at the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, then opened his studio-gallery in the old town of Colmar where he still works. 
A pioneer in the use of titanium in France, he does not deprive himself of the pleasure of casting gold or silver with the timeless fascination of the alchemists, but the precious materials enter into his compositions only for their colour or their lustre, in a way that avoids any flashy effect.

He has also been a free-lance designer for the Finnish company Lapponia and the cofounder and vice-president of the French association Corpus, within which he conducts research on a more theoretical level about the specificity of contemporary jewellery. He designs and makes his jewellery pieces on a one of a kind basis, some small series, objects, wall compositions and installations.

The purity of these materials corresponds to the purity of the forms. His jewels, definitively contemporary, are similar to the constructivist art. Their beauty springs from an abstract reorganization of lines, shapes and colours. Any trace of the work of the materials is erased of these jewels contributing to their Zen refinement. 
In 2017, he participated in the international exhibition "Medusa" at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and one of his pieces belongs to the permanent collection of Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.

"Before being any precise object, jewellery is a gesture
A gesture to appropriate the world, It is a token of our humanity.
It expresses one thing alone: human relationships
Jewellery reveals and weaves ties between people."
