CLOSE TO ME
OPENING THURSDAY 22ND OF MAY, 17-19
RUNS UNTIL 14TH OF JUNE
Lena Olson has been working as an independent artist in the jewelry
field since her graduation from HDK School of Design and Crafts, Gothenburg
in 1996. Her work can be recognized in her typical skilled way of using
wood as the main material. The series Close to Me is a result of a wish
to investigate the relation between an object and the human body, to
catch a deeper understanding in what is happening in the meeting between
the two, and what the choice of material and form means for the entirety.
During this year's research study at Konstfack, University College of
Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, Lena Olson, has investigated these
issues and now she will open it up for a broader audience.
