Brooch, “X”, silver. Swedish jewellery artist Åsa Lockner has created two large silver brooches titled “X” and “O”. The “X” brooch represents the self and its rays symbolize the impact and various dependencies we have on others.
In these uncertain times, most people are happy with the necessities and the concept of luxury is in a state of flux, Lockner says. It makes it ever so clear that the artistic profession relies upon its audience having a sense of security. “I miss my outward connections, my context and clients. Getting through Covid-19 is dependent on knowing that there is something on the other side… Hello! Is there anyone out there who sees my work?”, she asks.
Åsa Lockner (b. 1973) lives and works in Sundtorp, Sweden where she has her own workshop. She holds an MFA in Metal Design from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Lockner is represented at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm and The Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg.
