With a starting point in the craft of silversmithing Anna Nordström explores the emotional aspects of the object based art.
Her work often includes a dark side and talks to us about melancholy, brokenness and separation. By using a subtle, poetic, visual language she aims for an intimate personal relationship between her objects and the viewer.
“I believe that, as an object maker, I must aim for other values than solely practical ones within my objects, such as a visible working process, a storytelling aspect, or an emotional relationship to the object. To aim for an emotional communication is a way for me to verify the importance of my artistic work.”
Anna Nordström recieved her MFA from Konstfack in 2014 and she currently lives and works in Stockholm.
