Intro
If I try to capture those moments, parties, everyday life, meetings, scents and tastes, volatile colours and shapes emerge. Abstract and intangible memories of what has happened.

Artist list

Camilla Luihn
Camilla Luihn's jewelry provides an introduction to a story where the viewer can continue the narrative. Poetic, playful or sometimes a bit mysterious titles in combination with a sensitive aesthetic language raise curiosity and trigger the imagination. 

About the artist
Camilla Luihn lives and works in Oslo. She is represented at several Norwegian museums, including The National Museum and since 2019 Camilla Luihn is teaching at the KHIO, Academy of the Arts in Oslo.

What remains
Do you remember that party? That dinner? When we got up the day after, the floor was covered with used napkins, wine stains, broken glass and leftover food. As if a giant hand had swept it all to the floor. As if someone had danced on the table. Before we cleaned it up, it was like a polaroid image of a moment. A still life. 

Maybe it was before the pandemic. Or was it after? 

If I try to capture those moments, parties, everyday life, meetings, scents and tastes, volatile colours and shapes emerge. Abstract and intangible memories of what has happened. Which can not really be described, but which is now burned to glass and metal. 

What you see on the street. On the beach. Find it in a pocket where it was forgotten. It's the smooth stone, the shell, the broken piece of glass. The concert ticket, the hair curl. It's the ring and the chain. Photos, receipts, keys. Through winter, spring, summer and autumn. Do you also collect? I pick things up and take them with me. I look at it, take it with me or let it lie.

But what do these things mean? Do they function as a three-dimensional memory book for the society we live in? Without me, who puts them in context, they are just useless fragments. Symbols of love. In the meantime. Without us remembering what they are, where they come from - it might just be rubbish.
