Victoria and Albert Museum
For the exhibition, Petter Eklund wrote the following text:
Beauty changes, breaks down and is reborn. Perfection can no longer be believed in. The 20th century Scandinavian dream of the perfect land with ergonomic seating, super-sonic aeroplanes, the pill and shatter-proof porcelain has eroded and evaporated.
Åsa Lockners art does not require perfection from the wearer, on the contrary her jewellery relates to the body, protecting it and says that change is as it should be, that mortality is beautiful.
