The exhibition Everyone Says Hello consists of works by 20 artists from across the world, who explore diverse approaches and current actualities through jewellery. The exhibition presents works  that manifest the contributing artists’ different geographical, cultural and political positions, but also links them together. Everyone Says Hello both addresses and problematizes the society in which we live, through themes ranging from equal rights, the use of resources and  climate-related challenges, to works that turn our gaze inwards by asking questions concerning spirituality, identity and gender.

Helene Duckert’s installations offer a visual archive of cultural highs and lows in which discarded objects and remnant materials collected from the city’s dustbins and garbage containers become a personal comment on contemporary living.
