 Hibernate
Hibernate group is founded in 1999 and it is formed by three Finnish jewelry artists; Helena Lehtinen, Eija Mustonen and Tarja Tuupanen. The group members mostly work individually, separately; but they get together to give feedback and criticism.Recent years Hibernate has been silent, hibernating.
In order to wake up from hibernation, it started a project with the title « Craft and tradition ».
The project has gone as following;
Each artist made two pieces about the topic « Craft and tradition ».
Then the group met and discussed, each artist gave her two pieces to two other members of the group. Everyone had now two new pieces made by others.
Then one reacted to both of these two pieces with individual works.
This was repeated 6 times.
In the end there is 36 studies about the topic. Plus consequences.

Schmuck 2013 – EXPO ‘Lahti Schmuck’ – 84 GHz, Munich (DE) – 8-10 Mars 2013

Lahti Schmuck
Lahti has over 100 000 residents making it the eighth largest city in Finland. Lahtis location in the heart of Southern Finland, along a busy railway line and at the junction of several highways is superb.
Lahti with its surroundings forms an interesting unity. The surrounding nature and the city’s architecture create contrasts that work as a source of inspiration for artistic work. Lahti is traditionally considered a meeting point for different cultures. What jewellery did the artists create? How a jewellery artist views Lahti city ? Significant European and American artists participated in the project. The results will be seen at 84GHz during Schmuck 2013.

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.

EXPO ‘New Masters’ – South Karelia Art Museum, Lappeenranta (Finland) – 26 Oct.-9 Dec. 2012

New Masters

Saimaa University of Applied Sciences presents nine new Masters of Culture and Art from fine art studies in the South Carelian Art Museum in Lappeenranta, Finland. The viewers of this MA-degree exhibition will experience new images, questions and encounters. What happens if jewellery is the human body? How are the chaos theory and order linked in shape of a stone chain? What are those old men doing in the art work of a young artist?
In the exhibition the discount percentages of shops are visible in the faceted stones and super shiny surfaces. Personal memories are shown as rough stone pendants. The starting point for an art work can begin from a tradition of herbarium or the identity of the artist in between two countries and cultures. Beside materialistic approaches, the exhibition shows contemporary jewellery with a twist of moving images and also a collection of hundred fairies with butterfly wings.
NEW MASTERS exhibition shows proposals and views to the nowadays fine art. The nine artists of this exhibition have in common not only the new degree, but they have been working as international artists and have previous education in fine art and design.

EXPO ‘Ashes and Diamonds’ – Galleria Pihatto, Lappeenranta (Finland) – 31 Oct.-25 Nov. 2012

Ashes and Diamonds
Contemporary jewellery from Finland

EXPO 'Ashes and Diamonds' - Galleria Pihatto, Lappeenranta (Finland) - 31 Oct.-25 Nov. 2012 dans Anna RIKKINEN (FI) Ashes_Diamonds

Ashes and Diamonds is a curated contemporary jewellery exhibition, that’s part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012- program. Contemporary jewellery, which is rarely showcased in Finland, is a marginal and groundbreaking form of art. 18 artists and 36 works in total were chosen for the exhibition, which is curated by Päivi Ruutiainen (who’s currently preparing her doctorate on contemporary jewellery)  in cooperation with HUMAK and The Jewellery Art Association in Finland.
The mission of the exhibition is to break both the preconceptions about jewellery as an art form as well as the limits of the art world. The project will also give an opportunity for finnish jewellery artists to showcase their art and increase public knowledge of contemporary jewellery.

After Platina, the exhibition can be seen at :
Lahti, Finland: Muotohuoltamo, 3.10.2012 – 24.10.2012
Lappeenranta, Finland: Pappilan Pihatto, 31.10.2012 – 25.11.2012

Une ombre, une trace, un souvenir, évanescent, en pointillé … dans le métal ….. c’est l’impression laissée (dans le métal) par les titres des bijoux de Nelli Tanner : « Traces », « Shades », « Light to Carry », « Staying in the shadows », « Covered by snow  » ….. une attente blanche depuis la Finlande, forte de sa délicatesse …. comme des traces d’oiseau laissées dans la première neige, comme l’écriture d’un souvenir, en creux, en braille ….

« Starting point for my working is in everyday life. I make long detours by listening stories on my way home on the bus, finding beauty in broken objects, walking in my surroundings where there is wood and forgotten man made marks on the landscape.
I carry camera and sketchbook with me all the time. I stop my walk on the street to take a snapshot of a moment which otherwise will be forgotten or unseen. I try to catch something I don’t understand or makes me troubled.
I collect other people’s photos, characters of people, make small stories of these with materials to my working table. This transfers into jewellery through a process-based working.
Sometimes jewellery is only about a small hole on a white paper. What remains is the memory of the act.

EXPO ‘ASHES AND DIAMONDS’ – Platina Gallery, Stockholm (Sweden) – 31 Aout-22 Sept. 2012

ASHES AND DIAMONDS

Contemporary jewellery from Finland

contemporary jewellery exhibition created as part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 program. The exhibition will tour in Finland and other Nordic countries in the fall of 2012 :

*Stockholm, Sweden: Galleria Platina 31.8.2012 – 22.9.2012
*Lahti, Finland: Muotohuoltamo, 3.10.2012 – 24.10.2012
*Lappeenranta, Finland: Pappilan Pihatto, 31.10.2012 – 25.11.2012

This project is done in cooperation with HUMAK University of Applied Sciences, Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, and The Jewellery Art Association, and is curated by Päivi Ruutiainen (AM)

 

Ashes and Diamonds is an exhibition that displays the works of 18 Finnish artists representing different areas of contemporary jewellery art and design.

The exhibition gives a comprehensive overview of the different techniques and materials used in contemporary jewellery design today, as well as offering insight into the meanings a piece of jewellery can carry. Besides the traditional materials of precious stones and metals, modern jewellery design also makes use of gypsum, coal, organic raw materials, recycled materials, and other materials traditionally considered to be plain.

The Ashes and Diamonds exhibition will be accompanied by workshops, pop-up shops and HomeShopping events, where invited guests get to hear the artists themselves talk about their works.

Ashes and Diamonds will run until 16 June at the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 Studio gallery.
