Solo Exhibition at Röhsska

Kkonsthantverksstafett
28 mars – 19 april, Röhsska Museet, Göteborg.

Nu på lördag, den 28 mars kl. 13.00, tar smyckekonstnären Pia Aleborg över pinnen från keramikern Marianne Hallberg i Röhsska museets nya satsning, Konsthantverksstafetten.

Smyckena som visas kommer direkt från utställningar på Gallery Loupe i New York och Fashion and Textile Museum i London. De ingår i serien “In the Act” som Pia arbetat med sedan 2007. Hon har gått ut i ett villaområde och tittat på former och färger, men framförallt på hur det kan se ut på marken och i trädgårdar – konstruerad natur.

-Berätta mer Pia.

-Jag har tagit fasta på hur asfaltens lagningar och reparationer ser ut, på gräsmattornas löv och på pinnarna på gångvägen. Även om någon har försökt att få ordning så ser det ofta slarvigt ut. Eller kanske snarare omedelbart och direkt; som om någon bara velat “fixa till” det lite snabbt eftersom ingen kommer att lägga märke till det ändå. Men jag har sett det, och jag tycker att det omedelbara och opretentiösa uttrycket har en kvalitet som jag vill ta mig an och som jag tycker är rolig och snygg. Under arbetets gång har jag själv arbetat likt en asfaltläggare: snabbt, metodiskt, intuitivt och utan att lägga tillrätta för mycket. Jag har ofta låtit slumpen styra. Men, emellanåt har jag piffat till det lite likt en hemmafru som planterat ut en rosa perenn i sin rabatt! Det blir fint.

In the Act

Starting point in this series of necklaces has been the typical Swedish suburb. I have observed its general shapes and colors but above all its specific details: repairs in the asphalt, leaves lying on garden lawns, wooden sticks dropped on sidewalks, and how public pavements turn into private gardens – the “constructed nature” of the suburb.

Even if someone has sought to tidy it all up, it usually looks a bit sad and neglected. One gets the impression that somebody has tried to just “fix it up” without thinking about the result, since no one really notices anyway. But I have seen it, and I find in these immediate and non-pretentious expressions qualities that I want to work with – qualities that I find to be both funny and liberating but also very honest and true.

When making these pieces, I have worked much like an asphalt worker myself: quickly, methodologically and intuitively without the ambition to perfect every aspect of the process. But at times I have also added some nice colors, almost as a housewife planting pink perennials in her garden. After all, they look quite nice!

The result is a series of necklaces that contains both a qualitative and esthetic tension. For information about the necklaces, sizes and materials please visit: Pia Aleborg Jewellery – Online Store
