Ten year artist grant!

Kunstnerstipend: Stipend for etablerte kunstnere skal gi kunstnere anledning til å utvikle sitt kunstneriske virke over en lengre periode og til å kunne ha kunstnerisk aktivitet som sin hovedbeskjeftigelse. Det tildeles for ti år og kan fornyes for ytterligere ti år etter søknad.


TROPHIES // IN THE REIGN OF COYOTE at the DEUTSCHES JAGD- UND FISCHEREIMUSEUM in Muich, Germany from the 11th - 16th of March 2015. The jewellers distinguish themselves through their sensitive treatment of nature. Their work utilizes the material language of the trophy through the use of animal imagery and materials. The transformations they wrought, and the stories they weave, set them apart from other makers and unify them through aesthetic and conceptual application. In the Reign of Coyote references a collection of stories about the earth’s becoming, fables of animal and human relationships. The work of these artists looks back to a time when we, as humans, turned directly to nature for guidance, sustenance, and support.
