INBJUDNA CURATORS:
Katarina Siltavuori, Finland

Katarina Siltavuori moves on the crossroads between contemporary craft, design and visual art. She has a Master’s degree in Art History from Åbo Akademi University in Finland.

The experience of the International Fine Art field grew bigger while working as Director of Galerie Forsblom in Helsinki, co-operating with over 50 artists, exhibitions and fairs. As Curator at the Design Museum in Helsinki, she had a perfect spot for overviewing the Design field. In 2004 she was one of the initiators for a new gallery for Contemporary Nordic Craft in Helsinki, Galleria Norsu. She was the director of the gallery for seven years, curating numerous exhibitions and hosting seminars, events, and talks on contemporary Craft. The gallery participating in International Craft fairs like Collect at the Saatchi Gallery in London and SOFA, Sculpture Objects Functional Art + Design Fair in Chicago.

She has had several posts as an expert and is at the moment Chair of the board of the Tapio Wirkkala & Rut Bryk Foundation. This rare and internationally significant collection entrusted the collection to EMMA is on permanent display in the Visible Storage opened in 2017. Siltavuori also works as an independent curator and consultant. With an interest in Nordic co-operation, she wants to connect people, ideas, and different disciplines.

 

Bettina Køppe, Danmark
Køppe Contemporary Objects is a gallery and presentation platform for sculptural objects at the intersection of art and crafts. Køppe Contemporary Objects was founded by architect Bettina Køppe, who has extensive experience as a gallery-owner and curator in the field of craft objects.

“In my gallery and curation work the trend has shifted, due to the widespread alienation in relation to the production of everyday utilitarian objects and the processing of materials. A new craft wave is manifesting itself. In this latest development, the emphasis is on craftsmanship, material properties and meanings. Meanwhile, basic knowledge of materials has been all but unlearned and forgotten.

I am currently working closely with a group of artists who share an interest in the inherent possibilities of materials and the historical qualities associated with traditional crafts and techniques. The artists have a shared passion for exploring the meaning of objects in relation to function and iconography and based on the qualitative uniqueness of the material. Another common feature of their work is their focus on combining tradition with interpretation and experimentation to create works that hold contemporary relevance.”


Evelina Hedin, Sverige

As manager of Gustavsbergs Konsthall, a venue specialized in contemporary craft, Evelina Hedin is interested in exploring ways in which the craft field can expand. For artists, craft people and theorists as well as a general public. Evelina has a background in art pedagogy and working with exhibitions in relation to learning programs, knowledge production, collectivity and platforms for discussions and critique. She will talk about some issues regarding exhibition production and curating that are specific for the field of craft, and might become even more so in the future.
