Karin Johansson: NEW PLACES – Abstractions of a City

EXPO Karin Johansson(Karin Johansson Necklace: Overview 2012 Gold, oxidized silver, enamel, reconstructed turquoise, reconstructed jade, reconstructed onyx, acrylic)

« In the beginning, a variety of many-coloured images of a city: meeting points, streets, people, blue skies, night and day. Staying in a playful mood, capturing the pulse, the movement, or the silence.
Sketching, cutting paper, creating a map of sorts in my studio, micro and macro at once as my perspective. Picking out colours, choosing materials, thinking about my purpose, reflecting on meanings and limitations. Giving each element its shape, assigning it a size and its place, connecting it further to circumscribe in to space.
Having it all transform into a necklace seemed only most obvious to me: no up, no down, playing around the neck, constantly finding new directions. Wearing the object, you become the inhabitant of the new place. «  Karin Johansson
