Intro
With nature as a boundless source of inspiration and the influences of a silent and rough landscape, CODA museum's exhibition Northern light-jewellery from Finland captures the feeling of Europe's extreme north.

Tarja Tuupanen, Eija Mustonen and Anna Rikkinen organised and realised this exhibition at the invitation of CODA. A unique selection that has a very distinct focus, yet one that also links the CODA collection which with 9,000 objects is the largest collection of contemporary jewellery in the world. The exhibition offers a diversity of jewellery made using new and surprising techniques, including designs that are realised in CODA Museum with a state-of-the-art 3D printer. Northern Light is staged from the 9th of February 2019 to the 16th June 2019.

Northern Light shows the work of 32 Finnish jewelery designers. The title of the exhibition is not only a literal reference to the geographical position, but also a symbol that literally and figuratively makes a - northern - light shine on the ornament design. The exhibition is like a journey through Finland where the jewelery tells the personal story of the creators; the relationship with the world, society and - above all - nature. Several jewelery makers have a strong artisanal bond with materials, but new techniques and possibilities for expression, such as photography and video, are becoming increasingly common within the portable arts.
