Intro
In her current exhibition, In the Act, Pia Aleborg has instead moved outside to a typical Swedish suburb. The result is a series of jewellery marked by both qualitative and aesthetic tensions.
In earlier works, jewellery artist Pia Aleborg has often been inspired by both the private and the more public aspects of domestic environments. In her current exhibition, In the Act, Pia Aleborg has instead moved outside to a typical Swedish suburb. The result is a series of jewellery marked by both qualitative and aesthetic tensions.

Pia Aleborg makes jewellery that reflects and responds to things she experiences and sees in daily life. It can be anything from a vague feeling to something very concrete that becomes the starting point in Pia Aleborg’s work.

“Jewellery is, for me, the ultimate tool for investigating and expressing my thoughts and ideas because of the direct and immediate way it interacts with the body and therefore the personal sphere. Jewellery can be very intimate but also extremely superficial. I find this wide range fascinating and by mixing the two it becomes even more appealing.”

Pia Aleborg’s jewellery is frequently shown at exhibitions but she also makes jewellery for fashion. Pia Aleborg find it both enriching and liberating to let her work move between different contexts, allowing situations and characters to influence the way her jewellery is worn and how it corresponds to its environment.
