EXPO ‘FROM THE COOLEST CORNER’ – National Museum of Art, Architecture & Design, Oslo (Norway) – 19 janv.-21 Avril 2013

FROM THE COOLEST CORNER - Nordic Jewellery

from the coolest corner

From the Coolest Corner – Nordic Jewellery presents groundbreaking and fresh jewellery from Northern Europe, a comprehensive selection of current works by artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic States. The best and most innovative Scandinavian art jewellery is presented, assessing its possibilities and potential at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
The project presented in this publication, culminating in a symposium and a travelling exhibition, challenges stereotypical notions of northern European art jewellery. Do the typical Nordic trends of the nineteen-nineties still apply today? Indeed are there currently any general trends at all in Scandinavian design? Or has the orientation towards international design become so dominant that there are no longer any regional characteristics?
Renowned experts have made a selection of representative works, as a basis for researching the role of northern European jewellery in the context of international art.

With 160 works by artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic States, this publication considers the significance, strategies and trends of Nordic jewellery art in the early twenty-first century. Expert authors present the backgrounds, developments and characteristics of the contemporary jewellery.

COLLECT – THE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR  FOR CONTEMPORARY OBJECTS, SAATCHI GALLERY, LONDON

http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk/files/magazineadvertisement/961e30d20181ac41-collect_152x238_02.02.11_rev.gif

GALLERIA NORSU takes part in the Collect- art fair for the 5th time.
This year our theme is tradition and re-invention, using traditional methods and materials and treating them with a new twist. The artists approach classic ceramic prints, traditional Finnish rugs and Finnish design glass in a new, conceptual way.
Ceramic artists Caroline Slotte and Kim Simonsson have already successfully been shown before at Collect together with jewellery artist Tarja Tuupanen.
The new names this year are : the young glass artist Riikka Latva-Somppi and the established and well known Finnish glass master Markku Salo, textile artists Silja Puranen (winner of the Nordic Award in Textiles 2009) and the more quiet and conceptual artist Kaija Poijula. Last but not least the jewellery artists Mia Maljojoki and the promising and upcoming talent Sirja Knaapi.

Tarja Tuupanen, born 1973, Finland

« White is waiting, it is silent, quiet and calm, it is clear and comforting, and frighteningly empty, says jewellery artist Tarja Tuupanen.
Can a blanco portrait tell more than a photo? Is there something more to look at in a white scenery than in he the view from your balcony?
The white cacholong fascinates me. In a natural material all the white shades you can think of. This stone has the perfect atmosphere; it is minimalist and quiet, stagnant but not boring, quite noble even. It looks soft and gentle, but it is not the truth. When you look its whiteness long enough, you start to see some colours.
I do love the northern winter, when everything is covered with snow. It is silent, quiet and calm, clear and comforting and frighteningly empty.
