An art project for jewelry artists living in countries surrounding the Baltic Sea

With project Land Jewelry we invite jewelry artists living by the Baltic Sea to create landart. The project consists of several phases, the main event of which will be a week creating landart on Öland, Sweden, in the summer of 2020. We are hereby calling for participants.
Altogether ten artists (including the two of us organizing the event) will interact with the Baltic Sea environment on the eastern shore of the Swedish island Öland and create ‘jewelry for the land’ using only found materials of the area around them – natural or human-made. Therefore an important point is to challenge yourself and your practice as a jewelry artist in creating something possibly very different from what you usually do.

Deadline: 15.3.2020
