Intro
Curated by Anders Ljungberg, ten prominent jewellery artists are aiming to give the audience new insights into the dynamic scene of contemporary jewellery.
Gustavsbergs Konsthall presents Embraced - Jewellery sites, an exhibition of contemporary and international jewellery art. The curator, Anders Ljungberg has invited ten prominent jewellery artists, aiming to give the audience new insights into the dynamic scene of contemporary jewellery.

Anders Ljungberg describes the theme of the exhibition in the catalogue:
Jewellery has a history that relates to personal narrative and to corporal experience. When the item is worn, this narrative appears within a framework constructed by the surrounding society. The exhibition Embraced – Jewellery sites investigates this framework based on what can be described as jewellery’s own different rooms: in this instance defined as the bodily room, the architectonic room and the social room. All of the participating artists have something important to say about our contemporary situation with regard to one or more of these rooms.
