Mona Wallström, born in the north of Sweden and through travels and studies ended up in Gothenburg where she now lives and works. Her artistic practices include art jewelry, visual art and photography.


Ouote Love Jönsson: 
“What the artist is aiming at, the themes she is exploring, are not achieved here via a distinct process of determination but rather via a kind of mapping process that by necessity is incomplete, in the sense of being open and undetermined. But it is the roaming about itself, the unwillingness to stop, which ensures that the artist will in fact reach her goal. I am reminded of the explorer Robert Peary’s description of his voyage to the North Pole in 1909 and how he was convinced he had found that legendary place without actually having been able to determine precisely where it was.
 “After having determined its position approximately,” Peary writes, “then setting an arbitrary allowance of about ten miles ... and then crossing and recrossing that ten mile area in various directions, no one except the most ignorant will have any doubt but what, at some time, I had passed close to the precise point, and had, perhaps, actually passed over it.” “ 

Ouote from article by Love Jönsson in the book Regarding House no 10.
Love Jönsson is director of RIAN Design Museum in Falkenberg, former curator at Röhss Museum in Gothenburg, art historian, craft and design critic.
