National Solo Exhibition for the Spring exhibition at Kunsthal Charlottenborg. FRAGMENT exists within a space of tension, a meeting point between an architectural spatial experiment, a free-form artistic study of material, and a compositional approach to the field of design. Free of unnecessary ornamentation, the focal point lies on the aesthetic and the matter used to compose them: oak, steel, stoneware. Architect, Anne Dorthe Vester and designer, Maria Bruun, have created an artistic space based on the form and pure aesthetics in their common practice.
One of Kunsthal Charlottenborg’s characteristic large rooms is the setting for the duo’s most ambitious exhibition to-date, setting the stage for a special meeting between architecture, object and the body. Evoking a scenography backdrop of architectural models, the sculptures incorporate, reflect and interact directly with the room’s pre-existing elements. The viewer’s understanding of place and space is disrupted by an abstract sequence of wall structures, columns, surfaces, stairs, chairs and slats, that encourage movement, interaction, and reflection.
