The third level of the shell is close to being done, and wow, it was the most challenging level yet! Filigrees stretching out, pieces almost popping out, one did, had to put it back in after it was already bent, blah, blah, blah…on to the next level, even bigger, more challenging, but I am enjoying the process!

As much as people think I wander in my practice there always seems to be a loop back to craft and jewelry. From unwearable and conceptual to this new limited production work for the National Museum of Norway. Craft is always talking about and with body. It is always my privilege to work with so many amazing collaborators and this work with maretannesara has taught me lessons I will spend my life unpacking. Thank you z.alm.a for your incredible digital skills and working with me to see this project through.

Words below and into the comments From maretannesara

Me and matt lambert launch a special edition of our “Pile Power” collection in the occation of the new national museum opening next month in Oslo. The jewelry is based on my multi year and multilevel 'Pile o´Sápmi' project and the monumental 'Pile o´Sápmi-Supreme' work which is now mounted in the vestibule of nasjonalmuseet . I started the process of downscaling and orientating the work towards jewelry and the body allready at Documenta 14 in 2017 where I commissioned small casts of three of the heads in the main piece, made in reindeer-bone-porcelain. The jewelry we launch now is part of the wearable jewelry concept following this line of thoughts, intended to continue the topics from the Pile o`Sápmi project alongside with queer solidarity.

Moving a huge debate about structual abuse, ongoing democratic colonisation and endless rights struggles of indigenous people and minorities, into the small, intimate and disarming format of jewelry, nomadically living and existing from body to body, is for me very interesting and also the reason for seeking up a collaboration with the brilliant jewelry artist matt lambert.
