#CARVENSEENBY Petra Börner

For its Advent Calendar, Carven gave carte blanche to 20 artists, each of whom was asked to revisit a key item in the 2018 cruise collection. To revisit the jewellery, Serge Ruffieux commissioned the multitasking artist Petra Börner, whose clay sculptures are as intense as her portrait drawings. Who are you ?
I am a Swedish-born, London-based artist. I like to work using different media, revisiting themes like the forces of nature, urban landscapes, and facial expressions. I want to show a personal vision of things. , and I am interested in the link between spiritual construct and its realisation. In my work, Clay is the material I feel the closest to. Some of my sculptures will be exhibited this month in Paris, in the Portefoin store.
What does this pre-Christmas period mean to you ?
It's a moment of great creativity that I have loved , especially since I've had my daughter, and done things together. I also like to sing, and I 'm currently learning to play the piano. It is a dark and cold period, especially in Nordic countries, so I learned to compensate this morosity with the light of creation, so to speak.
What would be your ultimate artistic dream for the year 2018 ?
I plan to enter this new year the way you slip into a new dress : shining and fabulous. I dream to have unlimited access to all the materials I like to use. I want to sculpt using stnes, email, clay, and concrete, and also to make mural paintings. I'm also dying to collaborate with other artists, in order to create meaningful things, and to be more useful to our world.
