« Sometimes I see beauty in things that other people find strange or are even repulsed by. I become fascinated when there is something you do not want to see and the feeling you get when you do not want to look at something, yet you still do. My jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion. I take seemingly inappropriate materials, making ordinary and familiar objects seem extraordinary and unfamiliar.« Märta Mattsson

In the 18th century many new breeds of animals and plants were discovered and it was the main era of cabinets of curiosities. People collected rarities because it gave them the feeling of being in the presence of something extraordinary and marvellous. The cabinets of curiosities were not meant to sympathize with the creatures on display, only marvel over their oddity. In a world where not many new and exotic breeds are discovered I use dead creatures in my pieces to evoke wonder. The creatures are transformed and reborn; given a new life as objects of astonishment.

EXPO ‘FOUR Escapes’ – Lilla Galleriet, Klädesholmen (Sweden) – 2-3 Juill. 2011

Summer is here – time for escapes
Lilla Galleriet was founded in  2009 by Lisa Holvik and has since then regularly been showing exhibitions. Klädesholmen is situated north of Göteborg. It is a beautiful island with its characteristic penurious west coast scenery.
Changing location, breaking the everyday rhythm – getting exposed to unfamiliar situations and aesthetics. For a routine addicted person like me this can, at first, be quite frightening but once the first few steps are taken; there is nothing like a short escape.

- Karin Roy Andersson :
« I want to captivate the magic in nature forms by creating a space in between and inside of my jewellery. By repeating small pieces, like microscopic cells, I build structures and miniatures of nature »

- Malin Lövgren :
« Inspired by the beautiful brutality of nature I want to give shape to my own growth. A paper made vegetation to put on your body. I see a beauty in being able to give my time to this fragile and ordinary material and make it into something present and portable. »

HDK konsthantverk (Université de Göteborg, Suede) – smyckekonst (section bijou)
« Une réunion, un événement, un moment qui est passé, tout cela sont des mots. Les mots sont souvent les pensées et les réflexions sur notre existence. Préoccupations qui forment souvent la base de mon travail.  Il s’agit de savoir qui je suis, d’où je viens, où je vais, ce que je fais, à voir et à faire preuve de vigilance. Je suis à la recherche d’un équilibre entre le matériel et le mental, le poétique et le fonctionnel. Mes bijoux sont conçus pour le corps et le porteur. Cela parle de la répétition, des roulements et des dimensions qui composent l’ensemble.  »
quels matériaux utilisez-vous ?
« Je travaille avec des bas de nylon, de l’argent, de la porcelaine, et des perles.«

«  Imagination, fantasy, make believe, dreams, day dreams, there is several thing we can call the world we have inside our mind…. something that we all experience individually but that we can recognize universally when seen in a scenery in theater, movies and pictures and so forth.
My work is about the balance or unbalance between the real and the fantasy. The pieces can be seen as a micro cosmos on the border, they represent a portal to either of the two worlds: the real or the fantasy land.
The pieces can be seen as characters in a play in an unexciting reality; they belong in the same family but play different parts. If this was a fairy tale who would be the evil stepmother and who would be the hero saving them all from despair?
Whatever part they are playing I want them to be on the borderline where jewelery ends and imagination begins…
Jewelery can be a portal to journeys within the mind, as we can say the beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder we might as well say the journey will be in the mind of the same.
Maybe they didn’t grow out of my hand, but out from a dream in to a scenery where they seem to belong. Are they what they look like, or do they keep a secret inside, are they what the hole was in Alice in wonderland or the closet in Narnia, the portal to a surreal world?? I sure hope so…..
Only if I dare crossing the border, drop the control, I can start a travel within the mind, in a land where reality and dream blend in with each other and the order of things is subverted and unpredictable and you are invited to come along. » (Lisa Björke about « Where dreams belong…« )
