As a part of the invitational jewelry exhibition Koru 4, A5 reimagined the “Improvisation” project by inviting Swedish choreographer Ann Lindberg to perform and transform a series of synthetic plaster cast cups and glasses.
A project organized an initiated by Steinbeisser which paired A5 with contemporary dancers David Zambrano and Matt Voorter. A5 cast hundreds of household cups and glasses in synthetic plaster reacting to the stylistically designed bar area where the performance and exhibition took place.

The first public presentation of the group A5 was done through an exhibition at Konstfack University, the place where the three artists met. As a display method, A5 filled simple canvas tubes each with 85 kilograms of sand, establishing a sense of danger as well as serenity that activiated the jewelry pieces that adorned each element.

A5 was formed in 2008 with the idea of connecting three artists whom shared a similar vision. Annika Pettersson, Romina Fuentes, and Adam Grinovich met while studying at the Adellab/metalformgivning department at Konstfack University. Each member maintains a career as a professional artist in the field of contemporary jewelry. A5 has since served as a forum for creative discussion and international cross-disciplinary collaboration.
A5 has worked on a variety of projects with the main goal of establishing connections with as many diverse fields as possible. It is extremely important for A5 to promote work to a large audience, collectively and individually we feed off of the viewpoint of the viewer, the relationship between objects, images, and individuals.
