EXPLOSIVE: FROZEN FIREWORKS
MIA MALJOJOKI

11th NOVEMBER - 4th DECEMBER 2010

In the exhibition Explosive: Frozen Fireworks Mia Maljojoki works to freeze the moments that cause us to explode.
Fireworks are temporary explosions to commemorate an event. Sound, lighting, paint and smoke intermingled with wonder, excitement, nostalgia and inspiration. Fireworks are used to heighten an already emotional or significant occasion. In some cultures, fireworks and firecrackers are used as a way to ward off evil spirits at the events like funerals, weddings, inaugurations and the start of the festivities.

Jewellery tells stories. It takes the form of medallions to commemorate events or actions. Jewellery reminds of relationships with friends, family, or spouses. In some cultures, they believe that Jewelry can be used to heals wounds or offer protection.

Both Fireworks and Jewellery can be beautiful. They can allow us to flee reality and but at the same time, with full attendance, throw ourselves into the spiritual realms of fantasies and emotions.

Mia Maljojoki was born and raised in Joensuu, Finland. After a few years working as a stylist She moved to Boston to complete her training in jewelry art. 2010 she took her Diploma in Art Academy, Munich, Germany under Professor Otto Künzli. She is currently living and working in Munich, Germany as a Jewellery Artist.
