Working with the flaws

Stoneware relief from 2021 with John. 1v5: ‘and the darkness has not overcome’ and by Simon Grotrian, Ravnekost og slagere, 2017: I exist, and you search / lead. //
Jeg findes, og du leder.

The chance involved in the ceramic process is very dear to me. Cracks and flaws are divine interventions and I welcome them to play a central role to the final ceramic output.

 

I work with Nordic (Nordjysk) Iconography – an artistic category which I’ve invented. I combine biblical as well as intuitive motifs with tiny, strong text bits from the Bible and from the oeuvre of hymn writer Simon Grotrian (1961-2019). In 2022 I’ve started contemplating to use English text. The brilliance of Simon Grotrian however is in the ambiguity which requires a lot from the translator.

 

Continuously exploring Nordic (Nordjysk) Kintsugi, the art of repairing, uniting, with gold.

Christo i Berits hænder
Christo is created with and for a hospital priest. Designed to be held and to stand. The text is by Ingrid Mejer Jensen and roughly translates into:

One to reach,
one whose hand to hold,
bringing light
along
the deepest of darkness
and on the ways out -
you and I
all days
until the end of the world.
