As jewellery artists, our materials are our treasures. At the same time the materials we use are often considered non-precious by most people. We transform, investigate and push the limits of what the material can offer. By adding ideas, craftsmanship and time we can bring its hidden nobility to the surface. In this group show Karin Roy Andersson, Lisa Björke, Pernilla Persson, Hanna Liljenberg and Sanna Svedestedt want to discuss how applied art is looked at and valued. “We want to raise the question of how we price our work, who our wearers are and how our jewellery is valued by the spectators”. The exhibition (ig)nobel will be presented during Schmuck 2013.
This is how we do it:
During (ig)nobel we will present jewellery at four different price levels. The prices are calculated based on how much time we have spent on making the pieces and how exclusive they are. A higher price gives you a one of a kind jewellery piece and in the lower price range there are multiples of similar objects. This way we hope to make all of our visitors feel included as there will be something suitable for collectors of all all sizes.
1 – One exclusive piece: 2000 €
2 – Two one of a kind pieces: 600 €
3 – Six pieces, similar but with some variations: 200 €
4 – Unnumbered edition of multiples: 35 €
