Intro
A new member arrives at Gallery Four, the first solo exhibition shows her investigation of the function, tradition and meaning of jewellery through her own fine silver made weaves and ropes.

Artist list

Ammeli Engström
Ammeli Engström graduated from HDK – Academy of Design and Craft in Göteborg this spring and now she has moved into our workshop at Four. We are very happy to have a new colleague, and very proud to present her solo show "Not My Hands".

Ropes, weaves, and baskets are made to carry and to be carried. They are made of interlaced bands that create strong materials. The techniques are often associated with traditional female crafts, but the hands that tie, braid and bind are not gentle virgin hands - they are tough, persistent and strong.

Ammeli Engström makes her weaves and ropes of fine silver. She investigates the function, tradition, and meaning of jewellery. Thin metal bands are turned into a soft material with a shimmer that gives a hint about the origin and strength of the material.

Open studio: November 24, from 16 to 18h visitors are welcome behind the scenes to have a look at our workshop.
