Explosive: Frozen Fireworks
De 15 de Jan a 6 de Fev de 2011
Proudly presents the jewellery artist Mia Maljojoki.
"I am a jewellery artist. Using dental plaster, pigments, paint, rubberbands, and strings, I freeze moments to be worn and displayed on the body. My work is formed by motion, mood and play between intention and result. I cast, wash, bite, scratch, throw, scrub, break, and pour. This can last few minutes or can be done in layers taking many months. " Mia Maljojoki.
This exhibition is called Explosive: Frozen Fireworks. Fireworks are a momentary explosion to celebrate an event. They produce sound, light, colour, and smoke. Simultaneously, Fireworks produce wonderment, excitement, nostalgia, and inspiration. At the same time, explosions can create fear, anger, and hate. For this exhibition Mia Maljojoki has worked to collect this ephemera to wear them on the body.
Can’t emotion be solid?
