About jewellery :
*Professor David Watkins has written about Kadri Mälk`s creations:
Her selections from the chaos of life … offer bridges of meaning between experience and memory, between the mind and the senses. Crucially, everything is fixed by the many gestures of making, in the same way that the complete composition in painting can be held together by the handling of paint on surface. The objects offer intimations of shared experience. They frame private worlds within a capricious external world.
*Tanel Veenre: a beautiful piece of jewellery is exciting. Excitement is a quality that comes into being upon collapse of the quantifiable and measurable into the inexplicable and personal. Fleeing from gold-edged emptiness binds the artist’s soul with the thing being created. It’s all somehow wordlessly conspirational. Artist and jewellery become witnesses to a crime in which they are both complicit.
* Piret Hirv’s signs of suspense mostly cause muteness. To live means to be lost (J. Ortega y Gasset). Who does not feel lost, will certainly lose his way, i.e. will never find himself. And only the brightening in the tree tops may show the way out of the forest. (Kadri Mälk)
* Especially lavish are the so-called luxury items of Kristiina Laurits. The lacy, sensuously curved, sometimes useless items and brooches are like peculiar ecstatic whim. It is unpredictable and irrational. It makes us smile.(Kadri Mälk)
* For Eve Margus, transparently glowing, dreamlike materials make the disturbance, when coming in touch with reality, physically palpable. Engraved translucent quartz and chalcedony and opal, carved silky horn and antlers, are tactile in themselves, like their treatment here. (Kadri Mälk)
* The work of Villu Plink is male and laconic, and it is different. He is picturesque and full of images. An image holds, and is not to be disputed. (Kadri Mälk)

Explosive: Frozen Fireworks – Mia Maljojoki

This exhibition is called Explosive: Frozen Fireworks. Fireworks are a momentary explosion to celebrate an event. They produce sound, light, colour, and smoke. Simultaneously, Fireworks produce wonderment, excitement, nostalgia, and inspiration. At the same time, explosions can create fear, anger, and hate. For this exhibition Mia Maljojoki has worked to collect this ephemera to wear them on the body.

Can’t emotion be solid?

Mia Maljojoki was born and raised in Joensuu, Finland. In 2001, she received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, USA. In 2010 she received her “Diplom” under Professor Otto Künsli at the Art Academy in Munich, Germany, Also in that year, Mia Maljojoki received the prestigious Herbert Hofmann Award. She is currently living and working as a Jewellery Artist in Munich.

I am a jewellery artist. Using dental plaster, pigments, paint, rubberbands, and strings, I freeze moments to be worn and displayed on the body. My work is formed by motion, mood and play between intention and result. I cast, wash, bite, scratch, throw, scrub, break, and pour. This can last few minutes or can be done in layers taking many months.Mia Maljojoki
