During the year Sofia Björkman and Yasar Aydin are working on a project Eating Art. This time we have invited Natalie Smith and Sarah Hurtigkarl to take a part in the project.
Friday 14th of February is Valentin’s Day and we wonder if Sugar is for the heart?
The project is funded by Konstnärsnämnden and is scheduled to last 2013-2014.
Jewellery Art’s strength, is that it can through human movement, be shown and used in both private and public contexts, intimately as spiritually. Being a performer jewellery artist means to operate in many different situations and it is in the exciting voids we experiment. Through interdisciplinary practice and experimental meals in combination with artistic work, we discuss current issues such as gender, ethnicity, class, ethics and the environment.

Hybrid - Parallell Gallery (Stockholm, Sweden) 04-Apr-2013 – 26-Apr-2013
There are no unbreakable’s in nature and all we know of the certainty of materials is that there is none. Nothing is ever definite; the world has always been in a constant state of flux. It is never still, it is never certain and it has never really been solid. Even if the aim is to use as little energy as possible the planet has never been at rest and it is always changing. Mans eager hand and mind with the dreams that sketches the future plans (may it be as much dreams as nightmares) forces natures’ path into new directions. What will the result of HYBRID be; utopia or dystopia?
In this exhibition we are presenting seven reflections of HYBRID that raises concerns and wishes about the phenomena. Here HYBRID comes in the shape of development & destruction, creation & transformation, filtering & connecting. There is a combination of HYBRIDs changing with its surroundings and against its surroundings. There is also a questioning regarding control and uncertainty-but most of all about awareness and the lacking of it. In jewellery and objects we are presenting the co existing of different elements in forms of HYBRID; as something unknown, something new.

Poursuivant une programmation prospective dans le domaine de la céramique contemporaine, après « Petits bouleversements au centre de la Table » en 2008 et « Circuit Céramique » en 2010, les Arts Décoratifs, en partenariat avec la Fondation d’entreprise Bernardaud, ont souhaité s’intéresser à l’utilisation que font certains artistes bijoutiers du matériau céramique. L’exposition « Un peu de terre sur la peau » a été conçue à partir d’œuvres très récentes, qui interrogent les codes ancestraux du bijou pour les projeter dans des perspectives nouvelles. Les 18 jeunes créateurs sélectionnés font souffler un vent de transgression sur ce domaine encore très attaché aux traditions. D’origine française, suisse, allemande, finlandaise, hollandaise, suédoise ou taiwanaise, ils proposent en 140 pièces marquantes leur vision iconoclaste du corps et de la parure.
Unlike traditional jewellery, the traditional craft of the goldsmith, since the 1970s contemporary jewellery has become a field of experimentation at the frontiers of art, design and the artistic crafts. In this exhibition, eighteen French, Swiss, German, Finnish, Swedish and Taiwanese, artists are proposing a new and personal vision in their work. Although some pieces were conceived in reference to the history of jewellery, they can be made with the most diverse materials, using every possible assemblage process, in function of the techniques, symbols and the culture during a given period. This exhibition, conceived by the Fondation Bernardaud, is being shown in the museum’s Contemporary Space.
The exhibition is curated by Monika Brugger.

Ädellab – The State of Things. Konstfack Stockholm. Schmuck.
Die Neue Sammlung –
The starting point is the human body which is construed as the link between the person’s outer and inner worlds – this concept defines the design approach taken at Ädellab, the Dept. of Jewelry at the Konstfack Stockholm, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design. On the basis of the existing Dept. of Metals, Ädellab was founded in 2004 by Dutch jewelry artist Ruudt Peters and has since 2006 been emphatically influenced by Danish jewelry artist Karen Pontoppidan, who is head of Ädellab by now. The department¿s methodology cuts across both geographical borders and artistic ideas. Ädellab has made a name for itself with a decidedly contemporary approach that explores the possibilities afforded by the medium of jewelry as an important and independent form of expression today. A persons own ideas, observations, fascinations and obsessions can just as much be lent form as can emotions, issues of identity or interpersonal debate.
Karen Pontoppidan comments: ‘The final-year projects undertaken by exam students are not a matter of fulfilling an educational task, but demonstrate the individual need for expression that spawns creation. The artistic expression and therefore the work of the graduates cannot therefore be understood only in terms of intrinsic logic or the wish to understand the existence of the state of things. The work was created because an artist, a human being with experiences, feelings, dreams and failures, wanted the pieces to be.‘

» Ädellab – The State of Things, works by students from Konstfack Stockholm. This show was set up using red ropes that snaked down a hallway to the back and all became tangled together in one giant ball under a white neon sign. Each rope had the work of one artist so the viewer had to follow the rope along to discover them. There was a great variety and experimentation of materials in these works, I believe there were some made from dried sweet potatoes. »

Jewellery has always been a way to show cultural identity, belonging, status or views. ALLA is a project where 30 jewellery artists living in Sweden have created unique brooches as a reaction to the theme of xenophobia.
These brooches will be taken on a journey from northern to southern Sweden between the 25-27th of October.
