Swedish Art Jewellery

Contemporary Swedish Art Jewellery

Återflyttad till Sverige började jag läsa konstvetenskap och tog en masterexamen.Jag valde att koncentrera mitt skrivande på samtida svensk smyckekonst.

Hösten 2013 publicerades min bok Contemporary Swedish Art Jewellery.

Contemporary Swedish Art Jewellry 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 taken its rightful place in the world of contemporary art.
Jewellery historian 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, chief curator at the Museum of Arts and Design i New York City. “

Tre utställningar med boken som utgångspunkt har curerats av Sofia Björkman i München, Båstad och Göteborg. Se mer här.
