Felieke van der Leest
The West Norway Museum of Decorative Art in Bergen, Norway is proud to present the exhibition Felieke van der Leest: Jewelry Circus.

The Dutch artist Felieke van der Leest, resident in Hardanger Norway, combines the traditional art of the goldsmith with well-known textile techniques in a way that leaves us unsure of what we are actually seeing. In this way she creates a magical world of stories and playful art objects for us to look at, fabulate over – or just to decorate ourselves with?
