The past 15th of April 2014, Carolina Gimeno received her Master of Fine Arts in Jewellery and Corpus, from Ädellab, Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, in Stockholm. 

Carolina Master’s Project has been awarded the Konstfack Fund Scholarship by selection of Prof. Karen Pontoppidan, Head of Ädellab, Konstfack.

The series of jewels ‘Portable Pleasures’ challenge the notions of intimacy and public realm, two aspects that are involved in the act of wearing jewellery in society.
In my master’s degree project, I investigate how jewellery, intended as an ‘apparatus’ of communication and disorientation, offer both; to the wearer and viewer to challenge social conventions in regards to the feminine and the masculine.

The act of decorating the body with these jewels, leaves the viewer with no choice but that of crossing the boundary of the wearer’s intimacy. Can this act create a new order of connectivity and communication between both the wearer of that jewellery piece and the viewer that is forced to confront it?

“Carolina Gimeno exam work investigate the relationship between jewellery and gender categorisations and by doing so, Carolina Gimeno demonstrates her extraordinary insight into the phenomenon adornment. 
The pieces, created through a sensitive symbiosis of materials in combination with references to the physical female body, challenge us, the viewers, to deepened awareness.”

Professor Karen Pontoppidan.
Head of Ädellab, Konstfack

Her Master Degree Project “Portable Pleasures, when intimacy becomes public” was selected to be developed during the AiR, Artist in Residence program, hold by KKV, Konstnärernas Kollektivverstad i Nacka. Stockholm.
