Now Reading: Malene Hartmann Rasmussen Sculpture
Written 7 years ago by
Here is an other graduated student contacting us to showcase their work, but this time it’s more artsy than fashionable. Malene Hartmann Rasmussen from Royal College of Art in London is a mixed media sculptor making and arranging multiple components into complex narrative sceneries.
The intention is to impose personal feelings and stories onto container objects that traditionally have no feelings.
Initially the viewer may, mistakenly, be drawn to my figures thinking them to be toys; however closer examination reveals their rather darker narrative.
They invite you into an absurd and surreal world where things are not what they seem…
‘The dialogue between components and the way one’s unconscious can direct the composition interests me.’
‘I want my work to look like a very skilled child could have made it, clumsy and elaborate at the same time.’
