Intro
Echo is part of a series of exhibitions initiated by Jivan Astfalck and Laura Bradshaw-Heap under the umbrella title Polyphonnous.

Artist list

Suzanne Beautyman, Nanna Grønborg, Matt Lambert, Josefine Rønsholt Smith, Mette Saabye
Every something is an echo of nothing. / John Cage

The five artists are working with jewellery as echoes of time and tradition in the field. The imprints of these reflections leave traces in the visual representation worn as a language on the body.

. I died as a mineral and became a plant,
. I died as a plant and rose to animal,
. I died as animal and I was a (hu)man.
. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?
. Yet once more I shall die as (hu)man. / Rumi (excerpt from I died as a mineral).
. 
. I say something over and over, each one its own value, the same but always different. One piece of wood becomes many links only to become one chain.. Matt Lambert

Josefine Rønsholt Smith. Brooch: Echo, 2018. Zinc, yew.. 8 x 4 x 1 cm. Photo by: Josefine Rønsholt Smith. 
. I am interested in the exploration of our relationships withjewellery, and the ways in which we connect with hand crafted objects in particular. I believe that cultural contexts play a defining role in our attraction to jewellery and I seek to move the boundaries of these norms. The Echo series is based on the shape of my hands. I have collected sketches of parts of my hand, mirrored them sideward to form little symmetric or twin bodies. These bodies have reflected or imitated themselves in Zinc, Wood and Copper, materials that are traditionally used for water pipes or furniture. They have been constructed by slow traditional crafts techniques as well as quick and more industrial ways of achieving three dimensional objects. Together they perform as sensual counterparts to each other as brooches and necklaces.. Josefine Rønsholt Smith
