Annika svensson – CONTEMPORARY SENSITIVITIES

ARTISTIC INTERPRETATIONS OF CERAMICS, SWEDISH TILED STOVES & PUBLIC INSTALLATIONS

This publication provides a comprehensive overview of the oeuvre of Annika Svensson, whose large, warm and inviting tiled stoves have become magical linchpins, expressive works which represent a unique contribution to contemporary ceramic art.

For twenty-five years, Annika Svensson has rejuvenated an entire line of ceramics with nerd-like insistence and tenacity. The tiled stove, for centuries a proud companion in Swedish homes, is given by her hand a sculptural form in addition to its utilitarian purposes.

”The book gives a picture of a ceramist who is much more than her tiled stoves, and where the introductory text, written by design critic Boel Ulfsdotter, also places great emphasis on Annika Svensson’s public works and ceramic art.

Above all, Contemporary Sensitivities speaks through its images — and the title is not by chance. Only occasionally do the photographs present the ceramics soberly, but just as often both craftsmanship and entirety are released to instead convey the experience of just sensitivity.”
