Intro
We have discovered a kinship in our mutual artistic practices; jewelry and textile art. We are now letting our pieces have a conversation about everyday life and things. In our work, we salute the banality and greatness of everyday life, cheap or found materials, and the not so exotic and perhaps plain potato. With different starting points we end up quite close to this conclusion: There is something intriguing about the same old breakfast sandwich on a grey Monday morning. For us, the craft behind the piece is important, the magic of craft and the magic of everyday life.

Artist list

Sara Erkers, Elin Flognman
The exhibition Solanum is a collaboration between jewelry artist Elin Flognman and textile artist Sara Erkers. The artists have been intrigued by familiarity in their mutual artistic practices. Recently we could see the artists collaborate in an exhibition at Not Quite in Fengersfors, a former factory turned into an art space and center for cultural expressions. In the exhibition at Platina in Stockholm, we will see the artists' appreciation of everyday objects and love for the humble potato.

At Platina you find a broad range of high-quality art jewellery. During the years we have been working internationally with artists and clients from all over the world and we have been working outside the gallery as well, with exhibitions, popup events, fairs, experimental projects, lectures, education, seminars and more.


Opening Hours:
Tuesdays to Fridays, 11 am - 6 pm.
Saturdays, 11 am - 3 pm.
