WE INVITE YOU TO SHARE OUR PASSION.
These are the words from the students of Ädellab. To understand our students’ work, we must accept that jewellery is more than decoration. Jewellery can support any aspect of yourself that you believe to be beautiful, and this goes far beyond your body’s superficial beauty. The students at Ädellab invite you to share their ideas, to consider their work and think further about inner and outer beauty. Or as they also say:
WE GIVE BODY FOR THE ART, ART FOR THE BODY.
Jewellery and corpus are applied art forms. The word applied suggests, contrary to theoretical, the practical use. What a pleasant aspect of our work at Ädellab! Jewellery and corpus are important and independent forms of expression today. Ädellab, founded in 2004 with roots in silversmithing and jewellery art, work through Ädellaborations. We conduct advanced investigative work related to materials, techniques, symbolism, context, etc. Studies in form, philosophy and art history are integral parts of the Ädellab education. Each year we invite about 6 guest teachers. These are internationally renowned artists and their contribution is invaluable to make Ädellab up to date. Every year Ädellab students travel to create and participate in exhibitions, meet with new people, old friends and find new inspiration. And every year we are happy to invite you to our final Spring Exhibition for Bachelor and Master projects to present what´s going on in the mind of Ädellab.
WE ARE ÄDELLAB.
