PLATINA is happy to invite Helena Johansson Lindell to her second solo exhibition in the gallery.
Helena Johansson Lindell works with hierarchical structures and preconceptions within the field of contemporary jewellery. She embraces materials and methods that, from a societal perspective, are considered of low status. Her aim is for her craft to infuse a sense of permission, that everything is allowed without judgment, a topical and meaningful subject.
Helena Johansson Lindell was educated at Leksand's folk high school, at Konstfack in Stockholm and at Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Norway. Originally from Huskvarna, she is based in Stockholm since 2011. Her work has been shown in solo shows in Norway, Thailand, USA and Brazil; and in group exhibitions such as Schmuck 2017-2018 during the International Craft Fair in Munich and the 6th European Triennial of Contemporary Jewellery that toured Belgium, Sweden and France in 2017-2018.

The exhibition will be shown under the second edition of Stockholm Craft Week, The program, taking place in central Stockholm and in Gustavsberg on 1st - 4th of October 2020, includes openings, seminars, artist talks, open studios and more. Stockholm Craft Week wants to reach a wider audience and highlight the international level of excellence maintained by Swedish contemporary crafts.
The promoters of Stockholm Craft Week, Konsthantverkscentrum, Värmdö Municipality and Konsthantverkarna want to shed new light on contemporary craft and make sure the field receives the attention it deserves.
- Swedish contemporary craft has undergone a strong development throughout the 2000s and holds an exceptionally high international level. Nevertheless, craft is rarely seen or featured in larger contexts or in political initiatives. Few countries can match our Swedish line-up of multifaceted artists working within the field - we have a golden opportunity to show them off, says Maj Sandell, Director at Konsthantverkscentrum.

Vi glädjs åt att bjuda in Helena Johansson Lindell till hennes andra soloutställning i galleriet. Helena Johansson Lindell arbetar med hierarkiska strukturer och fördomar inom smyckekonstfältet. Hon omfamnar material och metoder som ur ett samhällsperspektiv anses ha låg status. Det finns en vilja att genom konsthantverk skapa tillstånd av att allt är tillåtet utan att behöva värderas,- ett aktuellt och meningsfullt ämne.
Helena Johansson Lindell är utbildad på Leksands folkhögskola, Konstfack i Stockholm och på Konsthögskolan i Oslo. Ursprungligen från Huskvarna, Småland, och sedan 2011 verksam i Stockholm. Hennes arbeten har visats i separatutställningar i Norge, Thailand, USA och Brasilien; och grupputställningar såsom Schmuck 2017- 2018 under internationella hantverksmässan i München och 6th European Triennial of Contemporary Jewellery som under 2017-2018 turnerade i Belgien, Sverige och Frankrike.
