Swedish jewelry artist Hanna Hedman has created a very intricate and interesting set of contemporary jewelry pieces that are currently on display at the Soda gallery in Istanbul. Completely Handmade and comprised of layers of silver and copper sheets, the exquisite collection asks you to find it all; fantasy, reality, and function. “Conceptually, I want to awake subconscious associations as well as lure you into my suggestive world that is full of detail; sometimes beautiful but also melancholic and malevolent.” Most of all, however, Hedman wants you to find your own meaning. As she says, “My art reference jewelery of past centuries, but the development of each piece progress organically with limited predefined planning. Fragments are created individually and then combined in a similar fashion as stories develop over time. The pieces are extension of one’s body, but also a sense of escape.”
The exhibition runs until October 30th.
