REINVENTING NATURE: Terhi Tolvanen – A Retrospective
CODA Museum will present a big summer exhibition entitled The Force of Nature – Visual art and jewellery inspired by trees and woods. CODA director Carin Reinders and guest curator Ward Schrijver have put together a highly diverse exhibition with works by 39 artists. The jewel as independent, artistic medium – one of the spearheads of CODA’s collecting policy – is present in a retrospective of the Finnish artist Terhi Tolvanen. This retrospective is called Reinventing Nature and is part of the exhibition The Force of Nature.
 
Visual artist and jewellery designer Terhi Tolvanen (Helsinki, 1968) is a pioneer of a new and original use of nature in the contemporary (author’s) jewel. Nature and how it is influenced by man is one of the central themes in her jewellery. Tolvanen’s work represents the beauty of growth processes and inflorescences. A large number of jewels find their origin in fragments of branches. The capriciousness of this kind of material, and with it that of nature itself, lend these jewels their suspense and rugged strength. Thus she looks for new aesthetic possibilities without succumbing to sweetness. This jewellery is suggestive as well as poetic.
 
What makes Tolvanen’s work special is her attention to detail, technical refinement, and her understanding of the practical demands jewels make. A striking feature of her jewellery is that the hand of man is always present in a natural, logical way. By this, she shows that, with attention and scrupulousness, culture and nature can reach great heights together. The poetry of her jewellery is the best plea for this proposition. A recent series of jewels is based on the art collections of the seventeenth century, in which amazement and astonishment about nature – linked to religion, superstition and science – formed the basis. These jewels are part of Reinventing Nature. Reinventing Nature is the first exhibition to bring together all the jewellery Terhi Tolvanen made over the past fifteen years. In addition, some of her earlier work will be shown. The pieces CODA has on loan for this exhibition come from all over the world, including two prominent American private collections.
 
The Force of Nature also shows jewellery by other visual artists and designers. Moreover, sculptures, photos, drawings and paintings by various Dutch artists are exhibited. The Force of Nature is based on a broad conception of nature, in which plants, trees, woods and growth processes form the point of departure. Sometimes the artist reverses the roles with his work, making man not the spectator of art, but rather the source and origin of nature.
