Description

With 156 works by artists from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, this publication considers the significance, strategies and trends of Nordic art jewellery in the early twenty-first century. Expert authors present the backgrounds, developments and characteristics of the contemporary jewellery.

From the Coolest Corner – Nordic Jewellery presents groundbreaking and fresh jewellery from Northern Europe, a comprehensive selection of current works by artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic States. The best and most innovative Scandinavian art jewellery is presented, assessing its possibilities and potential at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

The project presented in this publication, culminating in a symposium and a travelling exhibition, challenges stereotypical notions of northern European art jewellery. Do the typical Nordic trends of the nineteen-nineties still apply today? Indeed are there currently any general trends at all in Scandinavian design? Or has the orientation towards international design become so dominant that there are no longer any regional characteristics?

Renowned experts have made a selection of representative works, as a basis for researching the role of northern European jewellery in the context of international art.
