The jewellery we wear indicates who we are, or want to be. Engagement rings, medals and inherited jewellery all convey a message of identity, personal history and social affiliation. But jewellery is also an art form in its own right, and the artists like to reflect on the concept of jewellery and to energetically test its limits. In terms of materials, modern jewellery encompasses everything from precious metals to plastic, wood, textiles, paper and photography.

From the Coolest Corner, produced by Norway’s National Museum in Oslo, is a presentation of Nordic contemporary jewellery today. Many of the participating artists belong to a young generation whose works have garnered wide international attention since the turn of the century. The exhibition last until September 21, 2014.
