Intro
What is contemporary jewellery?
10 new graduates from the Institute of Precious Metal will present their vision of contemporary jewellery challenging the classical concept of jewellery. Through exciting and innovative works they transformed topics from culture, literature, photography, classical and modern art into pieces that show the power of jewellery as instrument of communication and connection.

Artist list

Markus Hvass, Rikke L. Andersen, Sara Marzialetti, Chris Phong Lý, Maria Radha Patel, Louise Rosenberg Stokholm, Dorthe Stenhøj Andersen, Signe Svanholt, Anna Valla Kalinda Janeway, Hongxia Wang
The Institute of Precious Metal is a 3-year higher education in contemporary jewellery at the Copenhagen Academy in Design and Technology (KEA). The program is based on an independent and practice-oriented approach to form and design. Material understanding, experimental design and artistic concept development are the key elements. Students are challenged in the conceptual development of the pieces, their relation to the body, craftsmanship and experimental solutions.
This will be the last chance to see works from graduating students, since the Institute of Precious Metal will unfortunately close after being for many years the only training focused on jewellery art in Denmark.

Until the 1st of June, it is possible for journalists to visit the Institute of Precious Metal, to meet the students and observe the ongoing projects.

The graduation projects will be evaluated on the 6th and 7th of June by the Tine Kjølsen, Head of the Design Institute at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Janne K Hansen, Director of the Copenhagen based contemporary jewellery gallery Goldfingers.

The exhibition has received support from: Copenhagen Goldsmith League, Danmarks Nationalbank's Jubilee Fund and Copenhagen Academy in Design and Technology (KEA).
