Alvina Jakobsson


Alvina Jakobsson’s artistic practice centers around movement and repetition, expressed in hand built monochromatic clay forms. Each of her works is comprised of dozens of curves, bends and folds, but there is a holistic simplicity that emerges from the complexity of her patterns.


Contemplating Alvina's work feels similar to viewing a zen garden, each sculptural component has its place but supports its neighboring component in producing a fluid cohesiveness. The pieces are minimalist without reading as austere, conveying a natural warmth and visual interest.

Since graduating from the University of Arts, Crafts and Design `Konstfack ́in Stockholm 2017, Jakobsson has been based at her own studio in the southern Swedish city of Malmö. Among her recent exhibitions she presented her work at the 1000 Vases exhibition in Paris. Jakobsson has received several prestigious grants for her work, most recently the Culture Grant of Malmö.
