BioPhilipp Spillmann, born in 1977, completed a classical goldsmith apprenticeship including studies at Schule für Gestaltung in Zürich, Switzerland. In 2001 he moved to Norway and became a member of the Norwegian Association of Arts & Crafts in 2011. He has participated in national and international exhibitions focusing on art jewelry and objects. His work is part of the permanent collections of the North Norwegian Art Museum in Tromsø, the Art Museum of Bergen - KODE, the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, Norway, and the Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts – MUDAC in Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2022 he received a 10-years grant for established artists by the Arts Council Norway.
A classic goldsmith education lies at the bottom of my artistic work. My passion for craftsmanship survived while I challenge the roles and prospects of jewelry, widen its boundaries towards sculpture and installation. I work in various materials provided by objects found at garbage places, flea markets, cheap shops or discarded in nature; objects suggesting visualizations of perceptions and associations. It is a playful exploration of the formability of unknown materials in combination with familiar metals.
