Artist list

Sigurd Bronger
Sigurd Bronger (b. 1957) is regarded both in Norway and abroad as a leading contemporary art jeweller. The exhibition BALLOON VOYAGE presents Bronger’s artistic development from the 1980s to the present day, and includes a large number of works loaned from public and private collections in Norway and other countries as well as completely new pieces. Bronger’s objects bear little relation to traditional art jewellery. He combines natural and everyday materials with precious metals to create witty and surprising objects that are technically advanced and often give the illusion of machines. His works question not only the art of jewellery but also the role played by the wearer in our society. In his Laboratorium Mechanum, Bronger constructs his inventive “carrying devices” – a unique form of expression at an entirely new meeting place between art, art jewellery, design and engineering.
