With a series of solo exhibitions featuring trend-setting and experimenting Silver- and goldsmiths, the museum offers insight into current developments among contemporary makers and a contemporary perspective of silver and gold objects. Marie-Louise Kristensen joins this series with natural authority and a spectacular display of surprising and vulnerable insights. Marie-Louise Kristensen’s jewellery combines painstaking craftsmanship with a clear artistic purpose conveyed with both humour and tenderness. She invites everyone, young and old, art connoisseurs and curious newcomers, to enter a universe where they can go exploring, and where both laughter and tearsare welcome. Where jewellery inspires us to wonder
‘What if ...’.
What if a piece of jewellery was a steak on a Weber grill?
What if the steak grew wings and flew off?
What if an emotion grew legs, manifesting itself as a jewellery personality? What might that person wish to tell me?
What if we could travel to parallel universes?
What if we could see the future and the past at the same time?
This open inquiry and willingness to welcome anyone with a curious mind is an ambition Grønbechs Gård shares with Marie-Louise Kristensen.
