IN A PERSPECTIVE OF CERAMIC ART
06. 10. 22 - 21. 05. 23
Bornholm’s ceramics tradition is unusually diversified, and the quality is high. For generations, the island’s ceramists have continuously been attracting new craft artists and fine artists. They have served as mutual sources of inspiration and have developed craft art of high international calibre.
The Bornholm Art Museum wishes to use this exhibition to examine and discover correlations among the ceramic manifestations transcending eras and ceramists. In brief, to present the full spectrum of this age-old craft’s approach to clay – in a perspective of ceramic art. The works are from among the museum’s collection, supplemented by works on loan from Hjorths Fabrik and private owners.
Visitors are urged to observe how the exhibition has grouped works and themes, but also to consider their own versions of how the idiom of ceramic art is articulated in its own right and contextually with other works. We wish to draw attention to the abundant ceramic landscape of Bornholm, both in the works selected for the exhibition and in those to be found when visiting the many ceramists around the island.
The exhibition presents eight different themes, and displays works by:
Thora Hjorth, Hans Hjorth, Holger Drachmann for Hjorth, Gertrud Vasegaard, Lisbet Munch-Petersen, Myhre Vasegaard, Axel Salto, Jais Nielsen, Ursula Munch-Petersen, Jane Reumert, Gerd Hiort Petersen, Ejnar Paulsen,Lenny Goldenberg, Astrid Anderberg, Bo Kristiansen, Peder Rasmussen, Marie Hjorth, Eva Brandt, Hans Munck Andersen, Peter Kofod, Kumiko Kimbara Asti, Anne Mette Hjortshøj, Shinsuke Iwami, Ann–Charlotte Ohlsson, Michael Geertsen, Florin Alexandru Murar ”Muri”, Simon Koefoed, Heidi Hentze og Christina Schou Christensen.
