Intro
'Iigo lea?' means 'right?', in Swedish 'eller hur?'. It is an expression used to confirm consensus and it was the first Sami expression I picked up. Monica and I chose to give the exhibition the title Iigo lea because we think the expression describes our collaboration in a good way. 
/ Karin Roy Andersson

Artist list

Karin Roy Andersson, Monica Blind Påve
Monica Blind Påve and Karin Roy Andersson both work with jewellery and craft but on different sides of Sweden. Monica in Övre Soppero in the northeast, and Karin in Gothenburg in the southwest. Three years ago, they got to know each other during an Artist in Residence project initiated by Anna Burman Sjöberg. Since then, they have visited each other's workshops and shared their experiences, sources of inspiration, and materials.
 
Monica Blind Påve works with silver and with duodji. She learned the craft from her older sister Solveig and her mother Anna-Maria. Monica has also attended various educations with a focus on arts and crafts. For example at the Sami education center in Jokkmokk. Monica draws her inspiration from her own culture but develops the traditional forms and techniques in her own way. The pattern on her dad's knife turns into silver earrings or a large facade decoration in steel.   
 
Karin Roy Andersson is a jewellery artist with a master's degree from HDK-Valand in Gothenburg. Her work is characterized by repetitions. Objects built up of smaller elements where the relationship between the details; rhythm and patterns, are important. Karin often works with waste materials and has for a long time worked with plastics - shampoo bottles, ice cream boxes, snuff boxes, etc. During the collaboration with Monica, Karin discovered new materials and in the exhibition, at Norrbottens Museum she will show pieces made of materials that are not always taken care of - reindeer skin and bone.
