Sigurd Bronger has made a collection of rings, booches and pendants called ‘Carrying Devices’. The collective theme In Between refers to the construction of this jewellery which incorporates a specific material or object secured in a holder. Sigurd either constructs this holder himself or makes it from existing artefacts. While the materials secured in these holders were previously natural in nature, such as an egg, a stone or a shell, nowadays he also uses materials from medical science or technology. The contrast between the generally robust steel holder and the fragile or delicate item this holds generates an amusing absurdity. With some pieces a magnifying glass ‘In Between’ the viewer and the object creates extra focus. For this collection Sigurd has once again reused an iconic piece of jewellery by an artist colleague, the Chewing Gum Brooch by Ted Noten.
