The jewellery artist Konrad Mehus has held an important position in Norwegian art since the end of the 1960s. In his works artistic intention and content play a more important role than practical usage and function. Mehus's objects significantly stretch our notion of what jewellery can be: it is not merely adornment, but rather a means of communication. With silver as a material and jewellery as a medium Mehus tells stories with social relevance and political wit. A language rich in metaphors and symbols is characteristic of the artist: Coca-Cola lids refer to changing consumer behaviour in times of globalisation. Gilded valium packets represent the increase of psychological illnesses in society. Konrad Mehus is concerned with commentating contemporary topics and trends. His works are characterised by humour and warmth, but also by irony and taking a personal distance.
