Intro
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main’. This expression is a quotation from a poem by John Donne from the seventeenth century. It is an expression emphasizing a person’s connections to his or her surroundings and/or other persons.

Artist list

Klara Brynge, Märta Mattsson, Walka
Two Chilean artists specialized in carving horns and two Swedish artists specialized in metalsmithing and the preservation of organic materials, set out to explore the enigma of Easter Island together. On one of the most isolated islands in the world, located 2,000 miles off the Chilean coast they begun their journey into unknown territories. Now days in the twenty-  first century humans have the possibility of accessing the most remote places of the earth. We can encounter and make unlikely constellations and connections so therefore everyone and everywhere is an island. Nothing is carved in stone or permanent. We are free to make voyages into both physical and physiological islands. Four artists with a diversity of cultural and artistic backgrounds united and explored familiar and unfamiliar grounds. What connects them is their passion and curiosity for the transformation of traditional crafts and materials.
