Made for the fall exhibition at charlottenborg kunsthal 2003
A collaboration with ceramic Marianne Nielsen.
Apartment plans form the basic element in the motif, as a way of showing how we live. At the same time they symbolise a private domain, a modern way of conquering land.
The piece consists of three connected artworks executed in three different techniques – all hand-made. They are constructed by 2 x 2 cm squares, a pixillation effect, chosen to couple computer culture with the craft. From a distance the piece looks like a computer print, but close up one discovers the craftsmanship.
Thanks to the cheeks which helped sewing the patchwork part.
