THE ANALYSIS OF AN OBJECT
11.11.2017 – 07.01.2018
In her Study exhibition, Jenny Ritzenhoff (NL) presents a series of experiments, schetches, film and images, which document and investigate glass objects made by the artist herself.
Ritzenhoff is interested in investigating the behaviour of hot glass: “Hot glass is almost like honey, just a bit hotter, and it almost shapes itself under the influence of high temperature, gravity and the tender hand of a glass blower. I am curious about how hot glass moves, how it collapses, intertwines and bends if you just let it be. How does the shape of a hot glass bubble change if one lets it become very long and then bends it? What happens if you melt hot bubbles together, how do they fold, melt, stick together and become one or not?” she explains.
The exhibition gives visitors an opportunity to look the artist over the shoulder and gaze into the development and ideas behind the creation of the finished work. Thus “The Analysis of an Object” is an exhibition, which focuses on process rather than result.
Glass runs through Jenny’s vaines. Her family has been involved in glass-trading and glass-making for decades. After studying architecture in Berlin and the birth of her two daughters, Jenny Ritzenhoff began to work with traditional glass blowers and in this experimental phase she deepened her knowledge about the properties and qualities of the material glass. The Glass Department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, with its outstanding study- and workconditions, gave Jenny the opportunity to develop her own perspectives on this material (Diploma of Fine Arts in 2013).
