It is easy as a mountain is easy.

In Magdalena Nilsson’s first exhibition at Konsthantverkarna she will show different imaging technologies on primarily porcelain and parian. Nilsson’s work has for several years revolved around the landscape, how we relate to it, and describes it. With a background in craftsmanship – especially ceramics – building work on the material with a conceptual framework. 

Horizons passed during a car journey. Mountain and gravel piles.
I want to carve me down into them to arrive at what lies beneath.
Everything renew and reform. Mountain breaks and moves.
The clay was once a part of a landscape, it embodies and represents this new.
Photographs taken including on Iceland.

Thanks to Arts Grants. Through project grant (2014) Nilsson has been able to develop her work with image on ceramic materials.

Magdalena Nilsson (b. Tidaholm, 1979), works with ceramics, ink and sculpture. Topography and mountain recurs in her work. She works based materials, shifting materials about different expressions and different tempos, a way to offset the clay slowness.
