Filip Palmén

MA work

MA work


Filip Palmén’s work addresses male openness, materialized in sculptural jewellery. Being true to oneself is challenging, it is to open up new roads against establishments, even if they may be one’s own established convictions. The pieces of Transgression are created to serve as physical metaphors for the concept of breaking out of emotional suppression.
