Update of the Gallery program of exhibitions for the 2009.
StatementDO YOU BELIEVE IN JEWELLERY?
Since the start of Platina in 1999 we have run a missionary for the kind of jewellery that we think matter, annoy and tickle wearable pieces where aesthetic can be as important as laughter.
At Platina you will find no ordinary manufactured jewellery. Instead youll meet with protesting jewellery, storytelling, gossiping, chanting and crying jewellery. Enchanting jewellery, unfaithful jewellery and jewellery that laughs to loud and to long. Each and every one chosen for their personal quality.
Platina is a platform for contemporary jewellery art and design.
There is a gallery, studio and shop.
Sofia Björkman and Åsa Skogberg started Platina and opened for public 1999 in Stockholm.
Platina presents national and international jewelry artists and designers.
We also work outside gallery with exhibitions, education, seminairs and travelling for exchange ideas.
