Intro
Individually creating while responding to each other is an intriguing concept of teamwork shown by the Finnish triad.  

Artist list

Helena Lehtinen, Eija Mustonen, Tarja Tuupanen
Hibernate group was founded in 1999 and is formed by the three Finnish jewellery artists 
Helena Lehtinen, Eija Mustonen and Tarja Tuupanen. The group members work individually and separately but get together for feedback and criticism.

In recent years the group has been silent, hibernating. In order to wake up the artists started the project Craft and Tradition. The topic was chosen because of its relevance for all group members based on their training and the northern way of living. Tradition is a huge concept 
in Finland - as well as craft - and includes everything from baking bread, silversmithing, 
embroidery, structure of splint basket, tacit knowledge, medallions... 
How is craft seen today - Hibernate tried to explore the field as artists, not as craftspersons. 
After a process of making, exchanging and reacting they present 36 studies about the topic.

Plus consequences.
