Title: KRAFT / KONSTHANTVERK ÅLGÅRDEN

Konstnärnas Verkstäder och Galleri, Borås by MA1

Six students from the final year of the master´s program (MA2) in Craft Programme at HDK-Valand,

Anja Fredell, Jie Zhou, Stina Edin, Statira Jazayeri, Ben-Hui Grâce Wu and Subani Melin, exhibited at the ÅLGÅRDEN Konstnärnas Verkstäder och Galleri, Borås.

The students presented artworks produced during the unexpected partial closure of HDK-Valand’s workshops, which came with a short notice during spring 2020. The students were physically separated and had limited access to the workshops. This led the students to intensively reflect on their artistic practices whilst developing new ways of working through balancing freedom, frustration, and compromise. This exhibition showcased the results of them coming together in the new semester in the fall, identifying commonalities of their artistic approaches, and allowing differences to shape the exhibition space.
