Artist list

This spring the exhibition Substance was shown at Gustavsbergs Konsthall. The exhibition was curated by Hnoss Initiative who invited 5 international jewellery artists responding to the theme: “The word substance can define both what things are made of, and their meaning and content. Jewellery are objects to be worn and this influences both the means of making and the wearing aspects. To consciously work with materials, forms and means of construction is essential for jewellery artists. The choice of the theme SUBSTANCE seeks to re-establish the knowledge of “practical art production” – sensibility and awareness of materials combined with a clear artistic intention.”

Now the theme will have a followup in Göteborg. The three well- known international jewellery artists who have been invited to lecture in the seminar, Peter Hoogeboom, who was one of the exhibitors, Felieke van den Leest and Evert Nijland, all have artistic expressions based in strong relation to their specific choice of material. Maj Sandell from Gustavsbergs Konsthall will share her reflections on the exhibition and the theme.
