Artist list

Sara Borgegård, Erik Kuiper, Martin Papcun
Jewellery as relational architecture. In the furniture and architecture week in Stockholm Gallery Platina presents exhibition Building Jewellery Jewellery Building. The exhibition shows architecture inspired jewellery of Sara Borgegård (Sweden), Erik Kuiper (Holland) and Martin Papcun (Czech Republic).
The common feature is that all the artists shows on how jewellry functions as a mirror of their surroundings. The three exhibitors want to show how the jewellerys relationship to the body just as the architecture saithe relate to the landscape.

Sara Borgegård
Jewellery has a residence and it is the body. It is specificly in relation to the body that Sara Borgegård is making the design of her jewellery. The materials are wood and iron wich flirt with industrial terms and references, the forms are rough and often contrasted with the gentle pastel colors. The work of Sara Borgegård is an ongoing discussion of the physical material, scale and proportions.

Erik Kuiper
Erik Kuipers interrest lies in spaces and buildings thatprotect us, spaces withdraw to, to feel safe and collect strenght to meet the rest of our lifes.
his work result in jewellery that symbolize feelings of safe places. Eriks jewellery is casted in cement, a material that we associate to constructions, protection, sustainability and comfort.

Martin Papcun
What is a home? Martin Papcun have had many homes in his life. There have been many new places, cities and countries. To examine just the definition of home Martin began a process of building up earlier homes, tear them down again and try to recreate them. Martins jewellery can be seen as the emotional experiences of the rooms and places where the material was incidental. The shape of his jewelry can be seen as memories and perceptions of a home.
