Lena Lindahl

Lena Lindahl is a Swedish artist living in the archipelago of Gothenburg. She has a MFA in Jewellery Art from HDK School of Design and Craft. Her works relate to literature, science and politics. Sometimes she addresses with a critical question sometimes with a smile.


We are all animals, individuals of a remarkably successful species. The history is not long, our 200 000 years is considered as a blink of an eye in evolutionary terms and if we play our cards well, there will be humans walking around on the Earth for many years to come. Cooperation, compassion and an exceptional clever mind have all been winning qualities on the evolutionary road. We have the sense, the ability and the sensibility. This brilliancy did not arise all of a sudden. There where others before us. Different kind of hominines, who learned how to hunt, make use of fire, communicate and even make art. My jewellery art is about the kind of human animals we are today and the individuals who went before us. It was their lives, thoughts and struggle that cleared the way for us and we would not be an existing species without them. We carry their traces in our DNA. In my jewellery I explore humanity. Our self-identification and our relations towards each other and nature.
If we peal off all the layers of our ideas about personal opinions, about what we want to achieve in life, if we peal of the entire existence of modern civilisation we would still be cultural beings. We would seek each others company and we would sing, dance, philosophize, fantasize…
