Intro
We are looking at crafts and the communal tale rooted in materials and aesthetics. The importance of aesthetics and materials in the construction of identity, sense of belonging and understanding of ourselves. Also, how our interconnected history is traceable today in material form. How is our history traceable in material form? We are looking for the answers in traditional crafts, materials, landscapes etc.

Artist list

Sofia Björkman, Helena Lehtinen, Pernille Mouritzen, Mette Saabye
Things and materials carry within them a subtle story that moves us as human beings, be that as makers or users of these products. Often objects carry visual markers in the form of a direct narrative such as a decoration, at other times the story within is in the direct perception and association of a material to a landscape, folklore, myths, religion, social position, work, traditions, cultural institutions etc.

We have done a lot of travelling to gather impressions. This is not at a scientific project, it is intuitive and emotional.

We, the four participants all come from a background in jewelry. Our mutual starting point of working with the body makes for a joint starting point of understanding the topics we experienced on our travels.

The result of our project will be a series of exhibitions in the Nordic countries. The first one is on the topic of color and will be in Offisinet.

This project is only possible with support from The Nordic Cultural Foundation – HANDMADE.
