    Full Description

    Hollow goose eggs, natural sponges, packaging, balloons featuring smileys, shoe soles, scientific gauges, or even his mother’s gallstones — the repertoire of things elevated to jewellery objects knows no bounds for the Norwegian artist Sigurd Bronger. His “portable objects” are turned into wearables by means of artful hanging mechanisms. For Bronger, jewellery is a means of communication. The questions he poses with his works relate to function and use, decoration, aesthetic, and beauty, and his works invite us to see things anew: does the beautiful really have to be useless and the practical aesthetically uninteresting? Through the witty yet subtle cosmos of this extraordinary artist, our own “world of things” is becoming a good deal greater.

    Text in English and German.
