Sofia Björkman is a jewellery artist from Stockholm in Sweden. After graduation from Konstfack 1998 she started PLATINA, a gallery and studio for art jewellery. Since then, she has been working as an artist, gallery owner and curator combined with all kinds of activities and projects within the jewellery field.
In the profession she meets a lot of people that comment what they see. This influences her and affects her artistic practice, often the comments form the basis for future work. This is a way for her to understand works and to express the experience being an artist and a curator at the same time. She says that wearable jewellery can easily be moved from one context to another and can therefore cause other reactions than exhibited in art environments. Mobility and flexibility make jewellery art unique as an artform and broaden a piece potential of having impact and eliciting various reactions.
At Bornholms Center for Kunsthåndværk & Design, Grønbechs Gård, she will show jewellery and three-dimensional objects that move between body-related works, installations, drawings and paintings. The work is based on comments on jewellery, crafts and artworks, landscapes, and human behavior in nature. The human body can be seen as a landscape for jewellery, the exhibition space as the environment for the exhibited objects and together they all form part of a larger landscape.
