Artist list

Märta Mattsson
She has turned attraction to things that initially seem repulsive into an artistic motivation – not really wanting to look, but being unable to avoid it. The jewelry is part of a world of its own, where shimmering stones, metal and natural materials meet bugs, insects, stuffed birds and small animals.
 
The Thiel Gallery has a cupola that Karl-Axel Pehrson decorated in the 1970s. Märta Mattson has mounted an installation of her art jewelry in dialogue with Pehrson’s secretive plants and mysterious animals. It becomes a sort of cabinet of curiosities for our own time, with art jewelry in a borderland where fantasy meets reality and where inanimate objects are brought to life in new ways.

Opening: Sat. 12 March at 2pm
