Up to come: Daniel Kruger: Between Nature and Artifice

Gallery Funaki, Melbourne (AUS), 20.2.2018-25.3.2018

The Exhibition at Gallery Funaki features works by renowned contemporary jeweller Daniel Kruger. Daniel grew up in Namibia and was educated in Cape Town, before immigrating to Germany. Known for his ceramics and jewellery, Kruger weaves complex and diverse influences into his pieces, often from his own background but also via museum research and extensive collecting.

This exhibition explores of the effect of culturally specific design on personal identity. In a new body of work, Kruger explores techniques and ornament found in Ndebele, Venda and Zulu beadwork, combining the craft practices of his homeland with a European outlook in an attempt to explore and define where, as an artist and as a human being, he belongs.

Arnoldsche Art Publishers edited two catalogues on Daniel Kruger's work. Between Nature and Artifice. Jewellery 1974-2014 appeared in 2014 with contributions by Jorunn Veiteberg, Monika Brugger and Daniel Kruger himself. In On Camp Ceramics and Other Diversions we present his exceptional ceramic work.




Collect 2018: book presentation MATERIAL PERCEPTIONS

Saatchi Gallery, London (UK), 22.2.–25.2.2018

Norway’s leading contemporary crafts gallery, Galleri Format Oslo, has selected 10 artists to represent the Scandinavian country at Collect, ‘the international art fair for contemporary objects’ at London’s Saatchi Gallery. On this occasion Material Perceptions, the fifth volume in the series 'Documents on Norwegian Crafts', will be launched by editor André Gali. The publication stimulates ‘critical discourse within the field of crafts’. Writers and critics were invited to investigate the perception of contemporary craft, resulting in a collection of eight essays covering topics from an ‘emotional perspective on everyday use’ (Anders Ljungberg) to ‘the allegorical impulse’ (Glenn Adamson).

Material Perceptions will be available by 26 February 2018.




Liv Blåvarp at Collect 2018

Saatchi Gallery, London (UK), 22.2.–25.2.2018

Liv Blåvarp will be the only jeweller chosen by the Galleri Format Oslo, to be one of ten artists in the field of 'kunsthåndverk' representing the Scandinavian country at Collect, ‘the international art fair for contemporary objects’ at London’s Saatchi Gallery. Blåvarp’s sculptural jewellery is made from wood, echoing the forms found in reptilian and marine life. The curator of the show and Galleri Format's director, Irija Øwre, has also included six ceramicists: Steen Ipsen, Gunilla Maria Åkesson, Trude Vestby Normark, Elisabeth von Krogh, Ann Beate Tempelhaug and Nina Malterud. Three artists working in glass will be also on show in London: Kari Mølstad, Vidar Koksvik and Kari Håkonsen. Øwre states, ‘The gallery aims to strengthen the position of Norwegian contemporary craft internationally and, through working with both established and emerging artists, the gallery reflects the various tendencies in contemporary craft today.’

You will find more information on the artist in our publication Liv Blåvarp: Jewellery – Structures in Wood.




Tone Vigeland

Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, Trondheim (No), 27.1.–1.4.2018

Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim, Norway, presents Tone Vigeland (b. 1938) and her work. Her distinctive objects flatter the human body, captivate through their dimensions and volume, and yet are assembled from a variety of the tiniest hand-crafted components: tubes of silver wire, precisely cut plates, spheres and eyelets, all in small scale, are invisibly interconnected, and Vigeland’s use of heavily oxidised, almost iron-black silver and steel is a typical feature. The result: art on the human body – highly aesthetic, perfectly executed and always wearable. The exhibition has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. Featuring some 130 works it provides an overview of Tone Vigeland’s studio jewelry from the years 1958 to 1995, an overview accompanied by a selection of objects and sculptures from 1998 until today.

The comprehensive catalogue raisonné is available on our website.




Caroline Broadhead

CODA Museum, Apeldoorn (NL), 4.2.–15.4.2018

The CODA Museum in Apeldoorn presents Caroline Broadhead. The exhibition shows work from more than 40 years and demonstrates the scope and breadth of Caroline Broadhead’s work. The exhibition includes objects in a range of materials, drawings, photographs and images. She initially studied jewellery, making pieces that showed a contact and interaction with the body. These soon developed into larger pieces that covered more of the body, but also involved movement and interaction. From this, a number of collaborations with dancers allowed a development into designing for the moving body for dance performances. Some works are installed especially in the space and the exhibition shows works which have been made in response to historic buildings or institutions, such as 'Breathing Space' in York St Mary’s or 'Blanket for a Foundling'.

The exhibition will be opened on Saturday, 4 February at 14.30 p.m. in the auditorium at CODA. CODA director Carin Reinders and Caroline Broadhead cordially invite you to attend the opening. Jorunn Veiteberg, art historian and editor of the publication 'Caroline Broadhead', will conduct an introductory speech.

The exhibition catalogue is available on our website.

Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich (CH) 20.6.2017–15.4.2018

The Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich hosts a very special exhibition until April 2018: a 50 meters long picture scroll from Thailand, depicting the buddhist Vessantara-epic, is hung all over the museum's wall.

The exhibition and our publication, in which five other scrolls are shown in full length, deal with the multimedia reception of the annual bun Phr Wet festival in Northeast Thailand.
