Current Obsession had the great pleasure of being invited by the Copenhagen Goldsmiths’ Guild in Copenhagen for the event The City of Jewellery. Secretariat of the Goldsmiths’ Guild and jewellery artist, Marie-Louise Kristensen, made a 4-day schedule for us to bike around Copenhagen together with Annette Dam. We had a peak in some studio’s, the award ceremony of the Skt. Loye Exhibition and gave a lecture during the seminar The Bigger Picture. From 2 October – 7 November 38 events invite you to explore The City of Jewellery.
Goldfingers Gallery is a space for international contemporary jewellery founded by Janne Krogh and Karl Ejnar Nybo. On regular basis GOLDFINGERS arrange solo- and group exhibitions with some of the most renowned jewellery artists from Denmark and abroad.
When Complexity Moved In
Jewellery artist and the most recent Skt.Loye prizewinner presents her new works. In this solo show, the artist visualises and materialises reflections around the feeling that life rarely goes as planned.

The gallery cooperates with a dozen of Denmark’s leading silversmiths on a permanent basis, and in addition to hollowware they also have wide range of Danish jewellery on display, designed during the last 50 years by names such as Ole Bent Petersen, Hans Hansen and Bent Knudsen.

The Closer, this exhibition is a composition of four young artists’ work from recent years. The tittle ‘The Closer’ is about both the way in in which we experience the work and the exhibition space, which because of its role as a workshop and its size – is an intimate and poetic space.
Minorities, Who are? We are! Are you?
Third year students at The Institute of Precious Metals worked with their own angles on the theme ‘Minorities’. Among others, life in the shadows, a meeting between ethnicity and Scandinavia, crisis-stricken men and minority as a choice.
