About the Exhibition
Aníta Hirlekar fashion designer
Bjarni Viðar Sigurðsson ceramic artist
Helga Ragnhildur Mogensen jewelry artist
Three designers strike a chord on DesignMarch 2016
Jewelry artist Helga Ragnhildur Mogensen, ceramic artist Bjarni Viðar Sigurðsson and fashion designer Anita Hirlekar have received deserved attention for their works in recent years. The designers’ common denominator is their unique way to explore the very limits of the medium they work in, often resulting in very powerful pieces where surface and texture play key roles.
For the occasion of DesignMarch an exhibition will open on their latest works giving guests a chance to witness an interesting interplay of designs from different fields.
Helga’s works display the power of the quiet and the small. She binds memory and contemplation in matter and form rendering a very personal interpretation in her jewelry. Bjarni is known for going against traditional methods of glazing by constantly experimenting with different combinations to achieve the unexpected. Anita creates chaotic textures in her fashion by using hand embroidery or setting the fabric free with grand color combinations.
Anita Hirlekar is born in 1986. She graduated from Central Saint Martins in London in 2014.
Helga Ragnhildur is born in 1980. She graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art in 2007.
Bjarni Viðar Sigurðsson is born in 1960. He graduated from Århus Kunstakademiet in 2000.
