Intro
(...) In the exhibition we will find jewellery that is at the borders and at same time breaking them. Artists move across land borders, challenging conventions about what is wearable, questioning the standard of what is called authentic and useful materials and techniques not usually associated with jewellery. (...)
If you want to understand our time, it’s a good idea to consider the human attributes and see what people wear on the body - or what the artists creating the jewellry would like to see there. Jewellery belongs to the human body. Humans wore jewellery before the invention of clothing, we know that even the Neanderthal’s were intelligent enough to use jewellery, and therefore could see the world in symbols. Jewellery refers to human and spiritual topics, often small in size but occupy place in the greater emotional world. If we ask any given person what they would bring if ones home caught fire, we often hear - jewellery.



In the exhibition we will find jewellery that is at the borders and at same time breaking them. Artists move across land borders, challenging conventions about what is wearable, questioning the standard of what is called authentic and useful materials and techniques not usually associated with jewellery. We will find advanced technical solution; materials relating to odd and historical references.
Among the works we will find materials stretched beyond recognition:  Agnes Larsson's laboratory with powdered charcoal, which she transforms into glittering slate. Rut-Malin Barklund's s necklaces, of a stone-like material yet actually composed of black mdf. Helena Lindholm's jewellery offers salt crystals as glittering expressions. Sofia Björkman digitizes previous work and allows 3-D printing to transform them into other scales and colors. Sara Borgegård creates the architectural jewels in which the body may form a landscape foundation as well as Johanna Persson, who draws against most forms of art, with her large neck collars of textile and glass. In the exhibition we also see work by Jenny Edlund and Annika Pettersson.
