EXPO ‘Matadero’ – Gallery Hnoss/Konstepidemin, Göteborg (SE) – 19-21 Sept. 2014

Matadero Walka Studio: Claudia Betancourt & Nano Pulgar, Chile

Claudia Betancourt & Nano Pulgar run WALKA STUDIO, a creative space for creation of and education about contemporary jewellery in Santiago de Chile. They state that “we are a territory of experimentation at the crossroads of Art, Design and Craft. The language of this territory is jewelry-making” and that their mission is to expand the possible borders of the jewellery discipline in Chile and Latin America. Their work has over the past years been exhibited in Latin America, the USA, Europe, China and Australia. Website:

Matadero is a series of necklaces and pendants, jewel categories that step away from the often resorted to European brooch and allude to the prevailing ornament of the Pacific cultures. The series is the product of a long investigation about the symbolical and aesthetic characteristics of body ornamentation in the Pacific Basin until its evolution into contemporary jewellery; as well as the experimentation with new methods to work the cacho de buey or bull’s horn, a traditional material in Chilean craft that has been worked by Betancourt’s family for generations.
The relationship established between body and ornament in Matadero reveals how social custom and stigmas around the subject of death or murder of animals, affect our capacity to deem animal remains as acceptable materials, thus disregarding the origin of body ornamentation and the sacred connotations associated with it in the cultures of the Pacific Islands (Polynesia) and Latin America.
Matadero uses both bull´s horns and hooves which had been part of a previous collection dedicated to the fashion industry, delicately tinted in a faint pink colour for that occasion. The fashionable neckpieces have been deconstructed, burnt and rebuilt as entirely new pieces that fascinate and repulse. The newly transformed pieces allude to one of the darkest periods in Chilean history: the 17 year long dictatorship that was common to many other Latin American countries and which is still a source of preoccupation and reflection for many artists from the continent.”   Valeria Vallarta Siemelink

“Portraits” collection presents jewellery pieces as personalities. They are representations of characters through abstracted and constructed facial aspects opening for interpretation, identification, and imagination”.  Noon Passama

“My work has two appearances, at first it seems stark, strict, geometric and monochrome, but then through interaction of the wearer or the environment it reveals it’s colourful aspect. I like to surprise people, to make them realize that nothing is what it initially seems.“  Nhat-Vu Dang

 Despo SophocleousDespo Sophocleous

“While maps and the spaces they create have been sources of inspiration in the development of my work, it is also the physical and emotional elements associated with place that allow me to create pieces, which represent and document movement, change and transformation in time and space.” Despo Sophocleous

 Benedikt FischerBenedikt Fischer

I am interested in things that withstand the test of time, that are maintained in our culture without question and which are established in our lives as axioms. I choose to work with industrially made products in plastic as a research of esthetics in our time and because I can’t deprive myself from it.”

THE RING – the most common piece of jewellery can be full of meaning, a personal statement sometimes showing itself as a technical miracle or purely decorative and beautiful. It can demand attention, be an invitation to play, be filled with tears and secrets – and is to be worn for one day or for ever.
In homage to the ring Galleri Hnoss has invited all the jewellery artists exhibited in the gallery since the start in 1997 to produce one ring each. The result is now to be seen in the exhibition THE RING – jewel forever. The show consisting of over one hundred rings is a vibrant collection of different expressions, thoughts and forms

In connection with the exhibition on September 9 we are also arranging aseminar : The Ring – jewel forever. The theme is the ring seen from different perspectives. We are very proud to announce the speakers: Anna Schetelich from Galerie Oona, Germany, Professor Otto Kunzli, Germany, and Manuel Vilhena, jewellery artist from Portugal. Moderator is Love Jönsson, crafts critic and guest lecturer at HDK, University of Gothenburg. The seminar is a collaboration between Galleri Hnoss and the Department of Jewellery Art at HDK, with support from Gothenburg Crafts Association, Estrid Ericsson’s Foundation, Wilhelm and Martina Lundgren Fund, and the family Wikanders Foundation.

EXPO ‘Mikiko Minewaki, Japan’ – Galleri Hnoss, Göteborg (Sweden) – 7-29 Mai 2011

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Hnoss (SE),Mikiko MINEWAKI (JP),Suede (SE) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:03

Gallery Hnoss proudly presents the Japanese jewellery artist Mikiko Minewaki.

Mikiko Minewaki was born in Akita, Japan in 1967 and is currently living and working in Tokyo. Her work has been exhibited throughout Europe, including at Schmuck jewellery fair in Munich and in the exhibition Contemporary Japanese Jewellery at the Crafts Council Gallery in London.

Mikiko Minewaki is one of the pioneers of the new Japanese jewellery art scene. Untouched by trends, she stood outside the Modernist tendencies in Japan in the 1980s and has instead always been closer to a Japanese craft tradition in which the making process is more important than the concept and theory.

Mikiko Minewaki bases her work on mass produced plastic products that she finds and put together into new forms. In this way, she shows that unique jewellery can come from everyday materials, the invisible objects that surround us. She believes that in every shape and form lies an opportunity. You just have to find it, pick it out and make it your own.

Gallery Hnoss will show Kids Room, a series of jewellery inspired and partly made up of fragments from children’s discarded toys.

The exhibition runs until 29 May

EXPO ‘Jenny Klemming’ – Galleri Hnoss, Goteborg (Suede) – 12 Fevr.-6 Mars 2011

Jenny Klemming, Sverige – Land pieces

Gallery Hnoss proudly presents the Swedish jewellery artist Jenny Klemming.
Jewellery pieces have a tradition of being precious personal carriers of memory and social status. They have therefore been handled with care. I like the thought of a jewel being lost, found, re-made, inherited and worn during a lifetime – that the piece of jewellery has a life span longer and separate from mine.
Human interference or possible domination of nature is a recurring theme in Jenny Klemmings work. She wants to point out the human action but also try to build bridges and visual transitions between culture and nature. Her work is a balance between craft and experiments, chance and control.

Jenny Klemming was born and raised in Malmö, Sweden. In 2010, she received her MFA in crafts, specialization Jewellery art and Design, from HDK School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg, Sweden. Also in that year, Jenny Klemming was awarded the Carl Larsson scholarship and Galerie Marzee´s International Graduation Prize. She is currently living and working as a Jewellery Artist in Mariestad, Sweden.

« As an artist I am searching for connections. I gather aspects and associations, hints and lore, trying to map out my area of interest. It is a balance between craft and experiments, chance and control. Jewellery is powerful objects and as a jeweller I tread an ancient path. When I use an unrefined material I cultivate it. I dominate and bend it to my will or let it go out of my control for a while before shortening the leash. Jewellery pieces have a tradition of being precious personal carriers of memory and social status. They have therefore been handled with care. I like the thought of a jewel being lost, found, re-made, inherited and worn during a life time – that the piece of jewellery has a life span longer and separate from mine.«

Explosive: Frozen Fireworks – Mia Maljojoki

This exhibition is called Explosive: Frozen Fireworks. Fireworks are a momentary explosion to celebrate an event. They produce sound, light, colour, and smoke. Simultaneously, Fireworks produce wonderment, excitement, nostalgia, and inspiration. At the same time, explosions can create fear, anger, and hate. For this exhibition Mia Maljojoki has worked to collect this ephemera to wear them on the body.

Can’t emotion be solid?

Mia Maljojoki was born and raised in Joensuu, Finland. In 2001, she received her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, USA. In 2010 she received her “Diplom” under Professor Otto Künsli at the Art Academy in Munich, Germany, Also in that year, Mia Maljojoki received the prestigious Herbert Hofmann Award. She is currently living and working as a Jewellery Artist in Munich.

I am a jewellery artist. Using dental plaster, pigments, paint, rubberbands, and strings, I freeze moments to be worn and displayed on the body. My work is formed by motion, mood and play between intention and result. I cast, wash, bite, scratch, throw, scrub, break, and pour. This can last few minutes or can be done in layers taking many months.Mia Maljojoki

EXPO ‘Kristi Paap’ – Galleri Hnoss, Göteborg (SE) – 2-24 Oct. 2010

Galleri Hnoss is proud to present the Estonian jewellery artist Kristi Paap.

Kristi Paap has exhibited at many places in the world as part of the artist group FFFF and as an individual artist. At Hnoss we will show her latest works « Blades of grass is only a moment » and « A room with a view ».

Blades of grass is only a moment is inspired by fantasies and recollections from the artists childhood cherry orchard. The memories of flower buds and roots is manifested in jewellery made of plexi glass and wood. The impermanence in the living is opposed, transformed and immortalised into new materials and shapes.

In the series A room with a view Kristi Paap is investigating what you in general terms might call the sound of nature, such as the drone of insects, leaves rustling in the wind and waves lapping against the shore. The jewellery in this series is a part of natures low-key sound or loud silence, and makes a quiet noise when put into motion.

EXPO 'Gemma Draper' - Galleri Hnoss, Goteborg (Suede) - 4-26 Sept. 2010 dans BARCELONA gemma%20draper15_img6618

Gemma Draper playfully explores her own fascination for ideas and concepts, creating physical objects with a unique sensitivity to their own world. The philosophical approach towards her own creations adds to her expression, often commenting on the problem of interpreting something out of reality. Or, as she puts it, « When we want to illuminate reality, aren’t we imposing, precisely, a disproportion that burns it? »

Gemma was born in 1971. Among her academic merits she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Autonomous University of Barcelona and a Master of Fine Arts at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, USA, besides being a graduate from famed school Massana in Barcelona. She has previously displayed her work at solo exhibitions in Stockholm, Munich, Amsterdam, Helsinki and Barcelona. She also teaches and holds lectures across the world.

In the exhibition at galleri Hnoss Gemma will show pieces from her latest projects « The floating knot » and « The nuptial suite »

« I whish to explore the kind of objects that need the intervention of the wearer to be completed and to become ornaments for his/her body.
