My final exam at the Academy of Art in Aarhus, Denmark
"The Other Side"
3 years of working with clay in various forms and then suddenly expressing myself in my final work made me humble. "The Other Side" is very much reflecting where I am at today. The title also indicates that you do not necessarily know what is on the other side…..of the sculpture.
In this project I have been working intensely with the space and room within the outer room of my black sculptures. The deepness, the darkness, the mysteriousness and the unknown is what attracts me. As a contradiction, if you like, to the black sculptures I have been working with sliced clay, which is upright, it is on its way out in life, it is fragile, yet solid, it is colorful yet black or plain white. The most important discovery during my work with this particular project, was to explore opposites like lightness and fragility versus strength and masculinity. Finding harmony with the two poles acting was my goal.
