Interview with Sigurd Bronger, Art Jewelry Forum, April 2015
"Stay curious, and a pure idea will automatically come to you" (Sigurd Bronger)
Known for his juxtapositions of contradictory objects - such as a heavy-duty metal clamp holding a goose egg - Sigurd Bronger traines as a goldsmith but found his calling in constructing wonderfully absurd contemporary jewellery. In Olivia Shih's interview on the occasion of his exhibition In Between (until 11.4., Galerie Ra, Amsterdam), he talks about how craftsmanship allows him freedom and how a fateful visit to Galerie Ra in 1979 changed the course of his career. Read the complete interview on Art Jewelry Forum.
