Jelizaveta Suska – FROZEN MOMENTS suite ….. (but now it IS time, about « frozen » …..)
« ………. My idea is to show the beauty of a moment in a landscape or stone-like abstract figures crafted in to brooches.
To make this project I crafted more than 200 hundred pieces. I selected 21 and made them into jewelry. »
This 2-4 december 2016 had an exhibition, « Jelizaveta Suska – Frozen Moment » at Galleri Blunk (Strandveien 23, Svartlamoen, 7042 Trondheim – Norge – firstname.lastname@example.org)
« ‘Frozen Moment’ pieces are a lot about feelings of nostalgia, of a moment in time. In my work I was looking for materialization of these abstract matters. I based it on associations and feelings. After a period of research I came up with my own material, that the pieces are made out of. This material has two main compounds: polymer, that is light and transparent, just like ‘a moment’ and crushed marble, that creates an illusion of a solid stone which I associate with a feeling of nostalgia.
In the beginning of crafting each piece, material is hot and dynamic but in a while it turns still. Like a metaphor of a moment becoming a memory. When looking at my works, people often are saying that they look like ice or unknown minerals.
I question traditional approaches and instead of valuable jewels I celebrate the idea behind the material. That’s why for the rear of the brooches and other supporting details I use valuable metals like gold, gold plated silver and titanium. »
Let’s go with NOSTALGIA ! in this period of end of year, it’s always my main sentiment ….. these brooches look like asteroïds, little planets in distress ….

Jelizaveta Suskaya - sept 2016 : This brooch from Frozen Moment collection went into National Museum of Art and Design in Stockholm. - Hurraaaay!!
but let Jelizaveta have the lest words to finish this year 2016 :
« Time to make a summary of this amazing year. So many things happened to me that I actually think it has been more than one year. I have traveled to Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain, Finland, Danmark and Norway. WOW!!! Fells like a dream, not all of it was a good dream. Shit also happened. But lets stay on a bright side. I got a cat!
Than I got two awards: Amberif Amber prize and Herbert Hoffman Prize. My work was featured in several prints between them is The New York Times (hell yeah!!! ), exhibited at Liljevalsch Springsalong, Moving Art Project, Schmuck 2016, gallery Sintra, Nääs Konsthantverk, Joya Barcelona, Konstepidemin, gallery PLATINA, gallery Blunk. My work is now at National Museum collection in Stockholm (MY Gosh!), collections of galleries Platina and Four, also in the collections of some of the most respectable and amazing collectors. I got support from several foundations, also from Swedish Arts and Grants committee.
All this puts a weight on my shoulders, gives me a kick and inspires. I still have a lot to learn and have to work hard. I look to a coming year with a hope for opportunity to work with art more than I could this year, to improve and never let down anyone.
I am so very grateful to everyone who supports me and likes what I do and believes in art jewelry. Thank you! »
a WOW year !!!!! again, CONGRATULATIONS !! Enregistrer
