Galleri Hnoss is proud to present the German jewellery artist Norman Weber. In the exhibition at Hnoss we show jewellery from three different series: House & Garten, Porträt och Schaustücke.

Artist list

Norman Weber
House & Garten originates from old photographs depicting Norman Webers childhood home. Ordinary images of the familys house and garden are translated into digital prints, later joined together with silver and steel into brooches and pendants.

The next collection Portrait is also rooted in the artist's childhood where photos of old toys from the 70s interact with other materials. The combination of figurative elements with flat surfaces and more three-dimensional structures often reappear in Norman Weber's work.

In the third series Schaustücke the jewellery challenge the viewer's sense of what is real or fiction. Seemingly genuine pearls or stones may in fact be artificial structures. Jewellery seduces and parade. It's about effect for effects´s sake.
