Caroline Broadhead (b. 1950) is a highly versatile artist who started in jewelry in the late 1970s. Since then she has extended her practice from "wearable objects" and textile works to dance collaborations and installations in historic buildings. Broadhead's work is concerned with the boundaries of an individual and the interface of inside and outside, public and private, including a sense of territory and personal space, presence and absence and a balance between substance and image. It has explored outer extents of the body as seen through light, shadows, reflections and movement. This comprehensive overview also comprises larger scale and collaborative works that aim to elicit a particular experience or to start a train of thought.

Contents: Liesbeth den Besten: Caroline Broadhead and the international 'objects to wear' movement; Jorunn Veiteberg: Emotional Experiences; Plates & words by Caroline Broadhead; Biography.
