Invitation to the Opening of From the Coolest Corner: Nordic Jewellery
Welcome to the Opening of Scandinavia's Largest Jewellery Exhibition.
WELCOME TO THE OPENING ON JUNE 3, 2014 AT 5.30PM
The jewellery we wear indicates who we are, or want to be. Engagement rings, medals and inherited jewellery all convey a message of identity, personal history and social affiliation. But jewellery is also an art form in its own right, and the artists like to reflect on the concept of jewellery and to energetically test its limits. In terms of materials, modern jewellery encompasses everything from precious metals to plastic, wood, textiles, paper and photography.
From the Coolest Corner, produced by Norway’s National Museum in Oslo, is a presentation of Nordic contemporary jewellery today. Many of the participating artists belong to a young generation whose works have garnered wide international attention since the turn of the century. The exhibition last until September 21, 2014.
The exhibition is inaugurated by Widar Halén, director of Design and Decorative Arts at the National Museum in Oslo, in presence of the Röhsska Museum´s Director Tom Hedqvist on June 3, 2014 at 5.30pm.
Photography Session with Mah Rana from 4pm to 7pm
In connection to the opening, the Röhsska Museum houses a photography session with UK jewellery artist Mah Rana from 4pm to 7pm on June 3. All visitors wearing a piece of jewellery can take part and have their photograph taken by Mah Rana. Participants are asked to also share the story about the jewellery they wear and what it means to them. The photo session is part of Mah Rana’s ongoing project Meanings and Attachments, which she has run since 2001. Mah Rana will also conduct photo sessions at Blå Stället, Angered, on June 5, 2014 and at Skövde Cultural Centre, Skövde, on June 6, 2014.
