HOME – A travelling jewellery exhibition from Finland to Ireland.

 

AJN

At AJN we have been working with the wonderful  convoi exceptionnel in Finland on an exchange project entitled, ‘Home’.

What makes you feel at home? Is home for you a place, a state of mind, a memory? How does your nationality fit into your concept of home? Every answer is different: the exhibition presents 18 point of views by the means of jewellery art.

This exhibition showcases the work of 9 Irish Art Jewellers alongside 9 Finnish Art Jewellers. Each jeweller has made a piece based on the theme of ‘Home’, the work will be exhibited in Taidebunkkeri, Finland 4th to 30th August and in Belfast, Ireland 1st to 31st of October 2015.
