Jury
KORU7 exhibition

Karin Roy Andersson (SE)
Jewellery Artist and manager of the contemporary jewellery gallery Four

Karin Roy Andersson works with jewellery and with communication. The life of a piece starts with an idea or when experimenting with a material. When the finished piece meets an audience another process starts. Experiences, thoughts and associations are mixed and the objects develop. The intimate connection to a wearer and a body makes the relation to the recipient very special.

Since 2010 Karin Roy Andersson run the contemporary jewellery gallery Four in Göteborg. Four shows exhibitions with artists from all over the world and it is a platform for discussions about art, jewellery, work and inspiration. The aim is to communicate jewellery art to a broad audience. The gallery presents some of the highlights from the jewellery scene, showing both international and Swedish, well established and emerging artists. The ambition is to provide a diverse program interesting both for jewellery enthusiasts and visitors who are new to this art genre.
Karin Roy Andersson got her MFA at HDK – Academy of Design and Crafts, Gothenburg, Sweden in 2009 and since then she has prosecuted many different artistic projects and jewellery adventures; exhibitions, lectures and other jewellery related events.


Krister Gråhn (FI)
Sculptor

Krister Gråhn works with sculpting and installations. The techniques vary from different types on construction materials to paper and pen. Along with his own personal artistic practice he has been collaborating with other artists in the past few years. Working together in pairs brings different kind of challenge and creativity to the process. One has to combine differing aesthetic views and have an on-going dialogue of the meaning in order to achieve a satisfying result.
Krister Gråhn graduated from South Carelia Polytechnic, Imatra in 2001 and Academy of Fine Arts, Helsinki in 2005. Gråhn has had solo exhibitions around Finland and he has participated in several group exhibitions, both curated and artist group based, since 2001.

Since the beginning of his career Gråhn has also been active in different areas of the art field.  In Rajataide Art Association Tampere, he run a contemporary art gallery for young artists and was the chairman of the contemporary art magazine Puoli-lehti in 2008-2015. Gråhn has been cofounder in different artist groups and curated various exhibitions trying to develop new kinds of approaches to the audience.



Tarja Tuupanen (FI)
Jewellery artist and the chairwoman of Finnish Jewellery Art Association

Tarja Tuupanen has studied jewellery and stonework in Lappeenranta in South Carelia Polytechnic, Finland (BA 1999) and she graduated as MFA from Ädellab, Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, (SE) in 2013. Since 1997 she has taken part in exhibitions internationally. Teaching and promoting her own professional field have been important, along with working as an artist. Tuupanen was one of the founding members of the Finnish Jewellery Art Association and she acted as the chairwoman in 2005-2013, and second time from 2020 onward. She has been teaching in Finland and she has hosted several workshops abroad in different institutions, most recently in China Academy of Arts in Hangzhou. She is a member of Hibernate-group.

Tarja Tuupanen´s artistic practise is dominated with one material, stone. For over 20 years she has been working with raw blocks of different minerals, synthetic korundum, or lately used marble tableware objects. The relationship to stone is so thorough that it becomes more than just a material to begin with. The work results as three dimensional objects for the body or to its surroundings in the context of contemporary jewellery, craft and contemporary art.
