Agnieszka Knap
The famous swiss psychiatrist Herman Rorschach tried to map the human experience using simple drawings to trigger associative unconscious thought. Agnieszka Knap's work has for some time centered around Rorschach’s assumption that form triggers emotion. She have been working with the motifs of Herman Rorschach’s personality test and translated these images to three-dimensional objects and jewelry.

Agnieszka Knap about her work:
"Human beings and their behavior interest me in general, and how we experience and interpret the surrounding. Why and how can the same form evoke different associations? An object or a piece of jewelry with an ambiguous form can be an interesting starting point for a conversation in which the viewer, the wearer and the artist's world can be given shape. "
During the exhibition visitors can contribute with their own associations.

Agnieszka Knap obtained her MA degree in Metal Design from Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in 1999.  Beside her jewellery practise she works as curator and co-organizer of arts and crafts-related events and exhibitions. She has initiated many projects within the Swedish arts and crafts field both as a freelance curator and through her position at The Swedish Craft Centre. Agnieszka exhibits regularly in Sweden and abroad, her work is represented at the National Museum in Stockholm and in numerous private collections. She works and lives in Stockholm, Sweden.
