Intro
Klimt02 | Gallery presents in Barcelona New Places - Abstractions of a City, a series of necklaces by Swedish artist Karin Johansson. As citizens we understand our city by the visual fragments that are printed in our brain, kind of memories of it giving us a personal vision of where we live. A colour, a smell, an architectonic detail... become abstract forms that explain our perception of space we inhabit.

Artist list

Karin Johansson
In the schuster-nicole-schuster-nicole-beginning-2016-2016, a variety of many-coloured images of a city: meeting points, streets, people, blue skies, night and day.
Staying in a playful mood, capturing the pulse, the movement, or the silence. Sketching, cutting paper, creating a map of sorts in my studio, micro and macro at once as my perspective.
Picking out colours, choosing materials, thinking about my purpose, reflecting on meanings and limitations.
Giving each element its shape, assigning it a size and its place, connecting it further to circle in something of this scene.
Having it all transform into a necklace seemed only most obvious to me: no up, no down, wrapped around me, playing, constantly detouring in new directions.
Wearing the object, I become the inhabitant of the new place.
