It was 5 years ago that Annea Lounatvuori and Christine Jalio first appeared at Munich Jewellery Week with Hatara, which makes this year a special anniversary for us. Hatara has certainly grown over this time, from originally 2 to the 8 artists that make up Hatara today. We are: Christine Jalio, Annea Lounatvuori, Helmi Lindblom, Melina Lindroos, Wiebke Pandikow, Ginta Grube, Jelizaveta Suska and Malene Kastalje.
This special anniversary called for a special project. How to connect 8 people with so many different styles? How to show change over time, time perception, which has been our ongoing theme from the start? We decided to do a little experiment which we call `the travelling jewellery piece`. All of us -smaller and bigger groups, have worked together on several jewellery pieces. In this experiment: One of us would start a piece, then send it off to the next artist, who would add to it and edit it, and then send it off again, to be added to and edited on further. It was a refreshing experience, but it wasn’t easy and working with these pieces has forced everyone to look at our creative process in a new light.
We won’t promise that all of these pieces are good or even make sense, but we can assure you, they are interesting in their craziness.
Come have a look at our hybrids, our chimeras, our beloved mutts!
Aside from the joined pieces, every artist will also present their current work alongside the travelling pieces.
