BRILLIANT! 18.9.2015 - 1.2.2016 the National Museum

Visual enjoyment, deep feelings and unique stories come alive in the jewellery created by the foremost goldsmiths in Finland. The Brilliant! exhibition offers a unique cross-section of Finnish jewellery design and craft at the highest level starting from the 1960s up to today.

The cross-disciplinary Brilliant! presents masterpieces by Goldsmiths of the Year and the finalists for 2016, accompanied by a soundscape and photographs by Susanna Majuri.

The smiths are connected by their passion, quality and an uncompromising attitude towards their work. They don't cut corners; instead, they will labour over even the smallest detail. A journey through the Brilliant! exhibition will uncover experimentation, the search for novel ideas, respect for traditions and international success stories.

Dreamy landscapes, clear water and bubbles are eye-catching. Majuri’s pictures blur the boundary between reality and the unreal, where people’s movement faces the mass and power of water. The encounters build up to form the magical atmospheres so characteristic of this sensitive artist, captivating viewers around the world.

The Finnish Goldsmith Association was founded in 1905 in Hotel Kämppi, in Helsinki. Since the very beginning, the association has aimed to bring together goldsmiths and silversmiths, to safeguard their interests and to raise the smiths' professional skills and livelihoods. The Brilliant! exhibition is the jewel in the crown of the Finnish Goldsmith Association's 100th anniversary celebration.
