Chris Antemann in collaboration with MEISSEN // The American artist's sculptures tell new stories that reference the history of Meissen Porcelain and its Baroque-based legacy.
Since 2011, American artist Chris Antemann has collaborated with MEISSEN to create a comprehensive range of one-of-a-kind and limited-edition artworks, including the “Antemann Dreams” and “La Maladie” Collections. Inspired by the porcelain figurines of the 18th century, Antemann draws upon an amalgam of design and concept to both examine and parody the relationship roles of men and women.
A love triangle plays out amidst a bed as sweet to the eye as the desserts surrounding the figures are to the tongue. As one trifles with another, the complexities of love abound. Delicately painted scenes decorate the bedframe, hinting at future events that may come closer to the delicately layered fruit and cream concoction known in the 18th Century as Trifle.

The "Witch Fairy Tale Figures" by Peter Strang from the year 1998 are one in a humorous, ironic and yet complex formal language, which represent cheerful footnotes to the literary tradition. His funny interpretations of Grimm's motifs distance themselves from the sometimes uncanny, sometimes difficult to fathom meanings of the fantastic stories.

They emphasize the individual charisma and characteristics of the children with their emotional intensity, aura and authenticity. They are portraits of fascinating liveliness and modern, vivid images of childhood in the early 20th century.

Animal figurines have been an integral element of Meissen´s artistic repertoire since the manufactory was established. While founded in naturalistic renditions, Meissen artisans have continued to push creative boundaries, drawing inspiration from both cultural topics and the artistic style of their era. In the vein of this tradition, Meissen artist Peter Strang has interpreted the Chinese zodiac in his very own signature style, presenting his Annual Figurine 2019: "Pig on ball."
Animal figurines have been an integral element of Meissen's artistic repertoire since the manufactory was founded. In the vein of this tradition, MEISSEN presents its Annual Figurine 2018, "Dog", which joins the previous year's 'Cat' as part of a series of pets. Both animal figurines were created in the atelier of the young sculptor Maximilian Hagstotz, whose artistic talent was honed as a master's student of Jörg Danielczyk.
Meissen artist Silke Ebermann´s annual figurine "Pig" comes to us in a charming, stylized guise - an unabashed departure from the long tradition of naturalistic animal depictions at MEISSEN. The motif itself is a nod to Chinese astrology, in which the year 2019 is dedicated to the pig. Individually crafted, the figure is painted by hand in muted pastel tones.

The "Songstress" belongs to the "Monkey Orchestra" consisting of 21 monkey musicians. Johann Joachim Kaendler, Meissen's first model master, created this bizarre orchestra in 1753: monkeys disguised as humans - delicate, playful figurines for festive table decorations. Kaendler thus ironically and humorously holds up a mirror to courtly society - in keeping with the fashion of the time.
Designed by master modeler Johann Joachim Kaendler in the middle of the 18th century, the “Monkey Orchestra” is an outstanding example from Meissen’s Baroque era. Popular in France at that time, the singerie genre depicts fashionably dressed monkeys imitating human behaviour in a satirical manner. Entire rooms could be decorated with these comical scenes, from the walls, upholstery fabrics and carpets all the way to the porcelain.
