“Contemporary Swedish art jewellery is a far cry from what is perceived as typically Swedish. Today’s jewellery artists engage with and reflect on problems in society using a material vocabulary that goes far beyond precious metals and gemstones. This book explores how art jewellery has at last taken its rightful place in the world of contemporary art. Inger Wästberg has produced a volume that serves as a reference source for curators, collectors and other artists. Thirty-one Swedish Jewellery artists are represented from the 1990s to today, with an introduction by Inger Wästberg and a foreword by David Revere McFadden.” – text from the backcover of the book
In this exhibition I am showing a project from 2001, “Take You Seat”. This was one of my first projects and it is also shown in the book CONTEMPORARY SWEDISH ART JEWELLERY by Inger Wästberg. I choose to show this project since I still like it, and it is a nice way to round up my career as a Jewellery Artist, because I have decided to take a long brake from this field now.
