Bjrn Weckstrm – Man, Machine and Jewellery

Didrichsen Art Museum, Helsinki

  • 11.9.2021–30.1.2022

The exhibition presents Weckstrm's sculptures and jewellery from the 1960's onwards.


The exhibition celebrates the long career of a versatile artist. Known internationally for his jewellery, Bjrn Weckstrm (b. 1935) expanded his interest towards sculpture in the 1970s. In his artworks Weckstrm uses materials in an innovative way. The exhibition presents sculptures made of acrylic, bronze, stone and glass.

Working in Italy for extensive periods has greatly influenced the artist. In Weckstm's artworks Classical myths meet contemporary scientific advances and fantasies – conquering space, genetic manipulation and the mechanical revolution. In the exhibition the large, glossy bronze sculptures of the 1980s and 90s –
machine men – are like a vision from the future winged by technological development.

The exhibition also showcases oil paintings on sailcloth, which combine visual arts with sailing – another vocation of Weckstrm's.
