Helena Lehtinen, Eija Mustonen, tarja Tuupanen
Opening and Artists’ Reception – Saturday April 2, 6 – 8pm
Exhibited through April 30, 2016
Hibernate is a group consisting of three Finnish contemporary jewelry artists: Helena Lehtinen, Eija Mustonen and Tarja Tuupanen.
Since founding in 1999, Hibernate has exhibited together in numerous exhibitions internationally.
Normally working independently, exhibiting together as Hibernate has enriched and influenced these three artists’ personal approaches to working. Mustonen honors the traditional crafts- in particular smithing, in forms relating to manual labor, Lehtinen solemnly reminisces on the everyday domestic kitchen and garden objects of her past, while Tuupanen works in stone, deconstructing marble tablewear, often leaving hints of their origins in the resulting wearable works.
This 2016 exhibition will be the second for Hibernate at Ornamentum and will be posted on-line atOrnamentumgallery.com
