EXPO ‘Sanna Svedestedt : Void’ – Byhuset, Krokom (Sweden) – 22 Juin-11 Aout 2013

Sanna Svedestedt: Void  -  Byhuset (Krokom, Sweden)

The leather craft has a strong connection to the Swedish culture, both in modern fashion within the shoes and bags industry, as well as traditional Sami craft, the Duodji. Artist Sanna Svedestedt has taken on the leather as a challenge and creates bold jewellery pieces from naturally tanned skins. This summer her work is exhibited at Byhuset Rödön, where work from three different collections is on show. All of them with one thing in common – the void – the empty spaces.
« There is a thrill in trying to create an exact shape in a soft, natural material that has no inherent exactness. When I create my leather pieces I try to cooperate with the material. The leather has such a strength and power, and I get the most interesting results when my manipulation interacts with the material’s natural movements. Many of my pieces have an empty space, a void, within them. The void gives a presence as well as lightness to the piece. I want to create a strong contrast between the heavy appearance and what they actually feel like when you wear the jewellery. »  - Sanna Svedestedt

« I experiment w/ old leather shaping techniques. It is an exciting material w/ possibilities to create sharp & exact shapes that look very heavy but are surprisingly light when you wear them. These objects demand their place on the body. With the right touch, & quite a lot of stubbornness, the leather transforms into the desired shape. I like the fact that this is a very old technique, & that I can develop it into a contemporary expression. »
