The name SOLO came up spontaneously when we did the workshop at Atelier Ravary in the summer of 2003. It is a suitable name for us as a group. We are in fact very individualistic and we don't want to equalize our qualities by becoming a group. Maybe SOLO is more a phenomenon than a group, We met at the Rietveld Academy some years ago. Now we are 15 jewellery-makers. We share the same mentality and that is why we still want to work together. SOLO may constantly changing - not always the same people join or can take part in a project. In 'Les Enfants' 12 of us are showing our work. Ineke Heerkens, Gitte Nygaard, Maureen Kok and Ines Tartler worked out the presentation concept and finally all our combined forces made this exhibition possible. The project was coordinated by Anette Walz.
