'Diagonal' is an art initiative focusing on promoting contemporary art jewellery founded in 2010 by Sanna Svedestedt Carboo and Karin Roy Andersson. Karin Roy Andersson is the manager of gallery Four in Gothenburg, a persistent jewellery artist and long distance runner. Sanna Svedestedt Carboo is a jewellery artist hooked on leather craft and an activist for fair payment of artistic work. 'The Odyssey of Diagonal-an adventure in the world of jewellery art is a story about love and war, great victories and heavy defeat. An uncensored talk about using collaboration and megalomania as a driving force in artistic work.

Saturday 1st - 14:00h: Christian Hoedl "Rhythm is to time what symmetry is to space." Eugène d'Eichenthal (Austria/Germany)
Choreography is all about arranging the body according to rhythm, time, symmetry and space. Contemporary dancers are gorgeous and most precise in their unique techniques, developing new modes of expression. I admire their endurance and their daily renew of postures. As a curator I communicate through contemporary jewellery like you would work with contemporary dancers: you correct and re-balance, concentrate, and use your passion to renew the recipients view.
