Among others, artist like Karen Segall exhibited her artworks, which are blurring the boundaries of dreamy and dark, while drawing upon subcultural edges.

Jewellery label Rocks&Rabbit creates handcrafted jewellery from crystals, metals and rocks and celebrates the closeness of nature twisted with contemporary aesthetics. Rune Christensen‘s illustrated bodies with deer antlers were one of my favourites with leaving no empty space on the religiously covered skins.

You can visit the exhibition till the 15th of February!
