EXIT 19

EXIT 19

10.2019 – 05.01. 2020
From 12th October 2019 Glasmuseet Ebeltoft will present this year’s graduates in glass from The Danish School of Design Bornholm. 

The graduation projects are the culmination of three years of studying product design and crafts at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation. The school in Nexø on Bornholm is the only state approved school in Denmark, where students can learn to master the material hands on. The course is rooted in the Danish design tradition, which focuses on craft and a material-based way of thinking and also gives space for experimentation.

Represented are Laura Wuisman Bækhøj and Annelie Grimwade Olofsson.

Annelie Grimwade Olofsson
“By combining byproducts from industries and artificial silicates I am exploring the boundary between artistic intention and material invention, in a context which might inspire people to observe the drastic development of materials in a biogeological setting. I am using ashes from waste-to-energy plants, sludge from the filters of water cleansing facilities and
studio generated waste to name but a few.”

Laura Wuisman Bækhøj
“The shaping process within the materiality of nature, I see as an extension of bodily responses existing in the world. Working with arts and craft is a way to freeze one’s movements in a physical object, outside oneself; it makes a connection between the surroundings and the self and consequently to other people. In my work with glass I use its transparency and reflections to make objects interact with light, movements and the surrounding space. The shaped silhouette of the glass does not show as an isolated motif but appears dynamic and receptive.

This can illustrate a familiar complexity in the experience of layers, shades and fragments in
what we sense. Hence the floating condition between my will and the innate qualities of the material is what characterizes my visual expression. My graduation project is an installation of abstract, winding glass pieces in waved shapes combined with more solid and static elements of concrete. From the stable joint, the glass blends into the space and creates a dynamic impact.”

EXIT 19 can be seen on the 1st floor in the old part of the museum from 12th October 2019 until 5th January 2020.
