MARCH 11 - APRIL 30, 2016

"Strålkastare" is a concept developed by Annika Pettersson and Adam Grinovich that expresses a fascination in the spectacle of light. It ties the two artists work together by presenting two distinct expressions underneath a series of engineered lighting scenarios. Inspiration was drawn from the transformative power of light, how, for example, a nightclub or concert can express power and energy with the simple act of manipulating light and focus. "Strålkastare" consumes the viewer entirely, demanding a full attention to the dynamic expression of light on objects that reveal themselves underneath patterns and sequences of programmed luminescence. The exhibition, in essence, embodies its title and English translation, to throw brilliance and serves to illustrate the sublime elements of each artists work.

Annika Pettersson was born in Karlskrona, Sweden in 1981. She completed her MFA with distinction at Konstfack University in Stockholm, Sweden 2009. Pettersson has participated in numerous group exhibitions on an international scale. She is currently living and working in Stockholm, Sweden.

Adam Grinovich was born in Lynn Massachusetts, USA in 1981. He received a Bachelor of Fine Art from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and a Master of Fine Art from Konstfack University in Stockholm, Sweden. He currently lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.

Both of the artists are founding members of the group A5, an artistic collaborative focused on adornment, the body, and jewelry in cultural contexts. Also, they are alongside Charles Mathis, co-founders of the design collective CRITIAL + which is an energetic design initiative with a focus on design ethics, involving young motivated individuals.

The exhibition is a part of "Art Jewellery 2016", where several museums, galleries and artists around Stockholm exhibit contemporary art jewellery.
