Changing Postition 
 27 April 2019

Curated by Hnoss Initiative in collaboration with Four Gallery and supported by Iaspis/The Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists. www.iaspis.se

The seminar will adress the topic of a jewellery artist in movement, physically and mentally, for a shorter or longer period of time. What effect will the relocation have on the artist? Could the distance to the homeland allow a sharper view or will it fill the gaze with nostalgia? In what way will the heritage present itself, what impression will it have on the art and what happens when the geografical and ethnic diversities get mixed up?

Presentation of lecturers and exhibitors:

Johanna Zellmer, jewellery artist, New Zeeland, Iaspis grantholder in residence in Gothenburg March – May 2019
Exhibition ”Meld”

Johanna Zellmer is a jewellery artist originally from Germany, now living and working in New Zeeland.
”During the past 5 years, my practice has focused on the subverting of monetary value by using currency as a key medium, and has subsequently moved into an investigation of migration, addressing the experienced realities of identity and location. Through the basic jewellery interventions of cutting and forging minted state symbols, I am questioning whether the hybrid identities of contemporary culture can be embodied in a single object. Symbols in metal, when forged under the hammer, become suggestive of shadows and take on the qualities of signs in a state of change, able to evoke a sense of hybridity.”

Coco Sung, jewellery artist, Germany
Coco Sung is a South Korean jewellery artist, based in Berlin, Germany. The work of Coco Sung is a vibrant collage of materials, colours and symbols. Bits and pieces from different cultures and religions merged together to personal amulettes. Although the amulettes originates from the artists own experiences, needs and wishes they easily transform in the eyes and on the body of a new receiver.. What wounds do you need to heal? From what do you need protection? Maybe you will find that special talisman that will fulfill your desires.

Monika Brugger, jewellery artist/curator/Artist in Residence manager, Pop A.i.R, France
Monika Brugger is a jewellery artist originally from Germany, living and working in France. She is a lecturer/teacher at ENSA, the National School of Art in Limoges, and she is the director of POP Bijou workshop and the POP Artist in Residence. The A.i.R focuses on building a platform for international jewellery artists, creating a dialogue beyond cultural, political and geografical boundaries. The resident will use artistic approaches in relation to the school and the town of Limoges with its specific history, using porcelain, ceramics and enamel.

Marina Elenskaya, journalist/jewellry artist, Current Obsession, Netherlands
Marina Elenskaya is a russian jewellery artist with a background in both journalism and applied art, based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. She is the founder and director of Current Obsession.
“Trained in Media Direction and later in Jewellery Design, I am currently involved in research and development of the critical discourse within the field of contemporary jewellery. Following my design training at Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence, Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, and most recently, the School of Visual Arts in New York, I have been involved in the jewellery industry from the standpoints of content development, publishing and facilitating opportunities for designers.

Mona Wallström, jewellery artist/curator, Hnoss Initiative, Sweden
Exhibition “Regarding House No 10/Equipment Boxes”

“When I raise my head from work in my studio and look out the window, there it is, House no.10. My thoughts have bounced off the façade of the house for 20 years but I discovered it just now. 
As” Regarding House no 10” is an Art Jewellery project I decided that it would be in the form of neckpieces. This form allows more opportunities to work with space, volume and weight. Movement is achieved by linking the parts of the jewellery together and gives an opportunity for the components to interact with each other which is important for the final piece. 
Some moments of surprise occurred through the transition from a drawing to a wearable object; an unexpected transformation from one interpretation to another during the making of the piece. This moment of amazement came to be a part of the projects.” 

Klara Brynge, jewellery artist/director of studies HDK Jewellery Art, Sweden
Åsa Christensson, jewellery artist/curator, Hnoss Initiative, Sweden
Exhibition “Out of Place”

“We are Åsa Christensson and Klara Brynge. Two jewellery artists who met during our studies at HDK in Gothenburg, Sweden, where we live and work. We practise our artistic work individualy and with different sources of inspiration. Still we found similarities in our approach to concept and material. In this collaboration we choose to show our pieces together.
The title of the project, Out of Place, is derived from thoughts about various places in the world and the investigation of something far away. These places do somehow exist in the world, not necessarily as one specific geographic place, but rather as a complex image, feeling or reflection of many similar places.”

MA and BA students at HDK Jewellery Art, Sweden
Exhibition “Posture”

In the department of jewellery art at HDK the students develop individual artistic voices. This exhibition shows a diversity of postures towards materials, influences, surroundings and inspirations. They speak in a spectrum of perspectives, approaches and positions through ideas and thoughts, in jewellery and objects.

Christel Copp is a swedish grafic designer, illustrator and visual artist as well as a frequent lecturer and teacher at Gothenburg University. Her talking points concern communication through imagery, visual
presentation and symbolism of colours. With her long experience Christel offers unique insight into how the mind interpret colour in everyday surroundings, in artistic areas and virtual environments. christel.copp@jmg.gu.se

Daniel Kruger is an internationally acclaimed jewellery artist from South Africa, now living in Germany, working as a professor in the Jewellery Department at the University of Art and Design i Halle.
”I use many different materials, both rich and poor. The forms vary from organic to geometric, the organic however seems to prevail. Texture,
pattern and colour play a big role, as does sensuality both in the shapes as well as in the use of material. Many pieces have a distinct erotic quality. I like symmetry; often pieces are made up of pairs.”

Carina Shoshtary is a german jewellery artist that graduated in 2012 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. In her current series she is literally tearing down her material off the walls. She is collecting colour sheets that separate from walls sprayed and painted with graffiti. The richness of
colours that the graffiti world offers, conform to hersensitivity and
affection for colour compositions.

Jiro Kamata is a jewellery artist originally from Japan, now living and
working i Munich, Germany.
Jiro combines goldsmithing techniques and non-traditional materials such as reflective
glass materials, eyeglasses and camera lenses. The
inorganic material is brought to life by the light refractions. Beams are
captured, transformed and transmitted to the wearer of the piece. The
colours, shapes and shadows are affected by the perspective – an
interaction between material, environment and receiver.
