SCHMUCKISMUS 16.03. – 16.06.2019




”The Neue Sammlung has invited Karen Pontoppidan, Professor of jewelry at the Academy for Applied Arts Munich, to curate an exhibition that keenly examines the role of artist jewelry as a mode of critical discourse. In the works of a new generation of designers, jewelry has extended far beyond an expression of personal identity to become an instrument of social commentary and critique. Themes such as ecology, consumer society, and feminism have all been directly addressed through jewelry. There are also softer, but no less societally relevant references, like questions of identity-formation or the current state of humanity in the 21st century.” (www.pinakothek.de)

Hibernate group: Eija Mustonen, Helena Lehtinen, Tarja Tuupanen and Jenni Sokura.


Hibernate is a group formed by four Finnish jewellery artists. Their new project Tableware & Tools is now showed for the first time in an exhibition at PLATINA. Within the group they work as independent artists around common shared interests. During get-togethers, the artists presented their ideas or sketches for the others to gain feedback and criticism. These meetings fed the process allowing the shared information and thoughts to multiply. Co-operation supports independent working, which is also the main point to work as a group. It goes without saying that all these meetings were organized around dinner, around tableware and tools. The exhibited works move between jewellery and installations.


The exhibition is supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, South Karelia Regional Fund and Swedish-Finnish Cultural Foundation.

Hibernate group is founded in 1999 and it is formed by three finnish jewellery artist; Helena Lehtinen, Eija Mustonen and Tarja Tuupanen. The group members mostly work individually, separately, but they get together to give feedback and criticism.


Resent years Hibernate has been silent, hibernating. In order to wake up from hibernation, it started a project with the title ”Craft and tradition”.

The project has gone as following; each artist made two pieces about the topic ”Craft and tradition”. Then the group met and discussed, each artist gave her two pieces to two other members of the group. Everyone had now two new pieces made by others. Then one reacted to both of these two pieces with individual works. This was repeated 6 times. In the end there is 36 studies about the topic. Plus consequences.


Opening 12th of March at 19.00!
