The gallery was situated in Gothenburg and run by a group of jewellery artists, showing more than 100 international jewellery artists over the years. In 2011 the gallery was transformed into the curatorial group, Hnoss Initiative.

Hnoss Initiative
Jubilee Seminar
2 September 2022

The seminar is organized by Hnoss Initiative in collaboration with IASPIS.

The seminar forms, together with the Jubilee exhibition, is a celebration of 25 years with Hnoss. The seminar focuses on international jewellery artists presenting their work processes, with the artist talks framed by a discussion on the major changes that have occurred in the jewellery field since Hnoss started in 1997. The lecturers all take part in the Jubilee Exhibitions in Hnoss’ old venue at Konstepidemin.

The moderator’s reflections and the round up panel discussion will focus on distinct shifts in the world of jewellery during the last decades such as the rise of the Internet and the emergence of digital communication platforms, the increasing influence of Asian artists on the international scene and the growing importance of women as artists, educators and gallery owners. The discussion will also highlight the fact that at the same time as craft theory has strengthened its position within the educational system, the jewellery field has in recent years seen a renewed interest in exquisite craft skills.

”These works are inspired by The Wave. The Wave is an elusive substance (if substance at all), its’ continuous and borderless character intrigue me.
Like insects on a water-surface everything causes/ produces waves; everything on earth transmits and receives continuously. The wave doesn’t move, it is the movement, it is a proof of existence.”

”I like to observe.
People, animals, the growth of plants.
Attracted by nature in all its forms, I make pictures of its appearances.
— To share my discovery of forest flowers or the different personalities of rabbits in small scale wearable sculptures.”

”I always try to make simple rings. No, I don`t make them, but I try to find rings in mostly single and solid materials.”

“In this process each pendant has been traditionally hand-carved. Once the pendant is finished, two 3D scans are made: one of the finish pendant and another of a rough stone in the same material. This allows me to create a CNC machined engraving of the negative of the pendent into the natural stone. In this way, the pendant is partially laying on it, creating an interplay of technologies, a dialog between methodologies, where the “what” generates as a reflection of the “how”.”
