GRADUATION EXHIBITION, KADK, BORNHOLM
From 10th October 2020 we present this year’s graduates specializing in glass from The Danish School of Design, Bornholm.
Represented from the programme ‘Crafts: Glass and Ceramics’ are:
Alexander Kirkeby (Denmark)
Anna Reimers Overbeck (Denmark)
Balázs Telegdi (Hungary)
The graduates state: “We are proud to be able to continue the Danish tradition for crafts in a new way, which also reflects current tendencies in society. Our artistic expressions are manyfaceted: both in relation to our different approaches to the materials, but also in relation to our cultural backgrounds. Our class is international with students from Columbia, Hungary and Denmark.”
‘Regal Imagery’ by Alexandre Kirkeby is an interpretation of the treasures of the Danish monarchy. The great halls of Rosenborg castle are filled with masterpieces. In every detail of these absurdly time-consuming objects, there is a story about the masters, who spend their lives making these.
Anna Reimers Overbeck explains that the discovery of combining digitalization with craft, has opened a whole new aspect and possibility to connect traditional craft with technological tooling.
With her project, ‘Firn’, she explores the field of tension between art and design. By interconnecting glass objects to light, she wants to create a blend of artistic expression and function.
Balazs Telegdi’s project ‘Through The Scope’ intends to illustrate the impact of technology on
our perception of our realm. With technology, new realities emerged, it shrank the world
and expanded the universe, affected most of the aspects of our lives, may it be for the
better or for the worse.
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.
Bornholm has recently been recognized as World Craft Region as the first place in Europe. This international acknowledgment reflects the island’s and the school’s strong position and high quality within crafts and creative innovation.
The exhibition will be presented at Glasmuseet Ebeltoft until 3rd January 2020.
