Intro
The techniques used by Ammeli are often associated with traditional female crafts, but the hands that do the weaving, knotting, braiding and roping are not soft and fragile but strong, persistent and tough.

Artist list

Ammeli Engström
Ammeli Engström graduated in 2017 at the Academy of Design and Craft in Gothenburg, Sweden. She explores weaving- and braiding-techniques in relation to the traditional function and meaning of jewellery. Weaving, braiding and ropes inspired her because of their close interconnection with the human body, in the form of (wearable) textiles and objects like bags and baskets. By cutting bands of paper-thin silver and weaving them she creates pieces of wearable ‘fabric’ and braided ropes with a soft shimmer that hints at the origin of the material. The jewellery pieces are rather large, but supple enough to adjust themselves to the clothes they are worn on.

Opening

 Saturday, February 3, from 4 to 6 pm.
