Gustaf Nordenskiöld is an artist, designer and curator based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Gustaf´s ceramic work deals with issues of natural forces and archaeological investigations in the present times. Visible method, interest in the function and interaction between man and objects are central. He is interested in man’s relation to the collection, of objects, use, materiality, status and value.
Often he lets the manufacturing process become part of the finished work, leaving traces of the process in the object, as a memory of its making. By using the randomness and the controlled in a process he makes work that raises questions about its being and creation.
This method oriented ceramics can take its expression in an object or in a documented performance.
