EXPO ‘From the Coolest Corner’ – Designmuseum Danmark, Copenhagen (DK) – 28 Juin-15 Sept. 2013

From the Coolest Corner – Designmuseum Danmark

The touring exhibition ‘From the Coolest Corner – Nordic Jewellery’ comes to Designmuseum Danmark from Oslo and next stop is Helsinki, Tallinn, Gothenburg and Munich. A publication accompanies the exhibition. The opening is June 28, and alongside the opening at Designmuseum Danmark, the Copenhagen Jewelry Triennial is filling the city with exciting jewelry exhibitions.

A large comprehensive exhibition shows what is happening on the Nordic jewellery scene in 2013. In light of the two successful exhibitions, shown in 1995 and 2001, Designmuseum Danmark has collaborated with Röhsska Museet in Gothenburg, The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design and Design Museum Helsinki to create a traveling exhibition that shows a large number of works, all created specifically for this occasion. An international jury has selected all the works and few are hand picked as guests of honour – including Kim Buck from Denmark.

It is not often, that jewellery is what comes to mind, when the citizens of Copenhagen pass by graffiti painted park benches and trash bins in the streets. But in the exhibition ‘From the Coolest Corner – Nordic Jewellery’ at Designmuseum Danmark a park bench and a trash bin is exactly what can be seen as brooches, birch wood trunks have been transformed into rings and metal wire has become pendants.

The exhibition shows selected jewellery from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Estonia and you can expect to see anything but traditional jewellery. The artists have in their own way reflected on and challenged the genre as well as the stereotype ideas of Nordic jewellery. The exhibition questions whether it is still possible to talk about a typical Nordic trend as it has been earlier or if the international orientation nowadays is so strong, that we no longer see any regional characteristics.

A jury has selected 61 artists to participate in the exhibition including five honorary artists. 
Denmark is represented by 7 artists:  Josephine Winther, Thorkild Harboe Thøgersen, Marie-Louise Kristensen, Kaori Juzu, Annette Dam, Julie Bach and the guest of honour Kim Buck.

Kim Buck’s works are characterised by a fond but critical attitude towards the varied creations of the jewellery industry. As in the series Bonsai, this sometimes results in jewellery that cannot be worn but serves instead as objects for contemplation. Bonsai, which is among Buck’s contributions to the exhibition, consists of five blocks of birch wood made into rings.

Where Kim Buck’s work is often inspired by traditional forms of jewellery, Marie-Louise Kristensen has instead been inspired by everyday objects. With an ironic subtitle she has created brooches for the exhibition in shape of for instance a park bench, a trash bin and scaffolding – images that most of Designmuseum Danmark’s visitors will recognise from the streets of Copenhagen.
