SIGURD BRONGER (Norway)
The Nature of Things
It is about how I look at different elements of Nature and everyday life. Sometimes these elements are not so obvious to be used in jewelry as such. These elements are a reminder of the fragility of nature and life. The surreal compositions that result when these pieces encounter perishable materials can be humour and absurd. The main issue of making “things” has to do with the fascination of the absurdity one might observe by experiencing this in life. The dialog between things and nature takes place in time and says something about historical epochs as well as our perception of so-called constant sizes. This is the arrival point and the landing ground of my voyage of discovery.
