Intro
Artists often choose the materials that best enables them to describe or communicate what it is that they want to narrate in their work. The five artists in this exhibition all have strong roots in specific materials and they have developed their own approaches to the relationship between material and ornament.

The exhibition Substance, curated by Hnoss Initiative, presents five leading exponents in the international jewellery field: Dorothea Prühl, Peter Hoogeboom, Lucy Sarneel, Alexander Blank and Hanna Liljenberg. The first three have long enjoyed international careers while the last two come from a younger generation. What they have in common is their strong roots in specific materials as well as the fact that they have developed their own approaches to the relationship between material and ornament. Hnoss describes the theme in these terms:

“Artists often choose the material or materials that best enables them to describe or communicate what it is that they want to narrate in their work. This has been characteristic of the cutting edge of international jewellery design. Working consciously with a material comes naturally to jewellery artists. What the artists invited to take part in Substance have in common is the fact that they use and identify themselves with a profound knowledge of a specific material and, in a highly convincing manner, use the material to communicate. Certain artists have become almost synonymous with a particular material.

”
Hnoss has a wide-reaching international network and has gained a reputation for the quality of its exhibitions. With its gallery and exhibitions, the society has been responsible for a revitalization of the art of jewellery in Sweden. Since 2011, when the gallery closed, the organization has worked on commissions under the name of Hnoss Initiative.
