V&A announces Malene Hartmann Rasmussen as their V&A Danish Ceramics Resident.

The next ceramic resident, Malene Hartmann Rasmussen, will start her six month residency in April 2018. During her residency Rasmussen will have a series of open studios where you can immerse yourself in exquisitely crafted ceramic works inspired by mythological creatures and the hidden realms of the unconscious mind.

Creating immersive installations from clay and photographic print Malene Hartmann Rasmussen’s surreal twisted work is a deceitful echo of the real world. Comprising a number of elaborate fragments, Rasmussen creates a tableaux of visual excess through which she seeks to evoke an emotional response in the viewer and actuate their imagination. Rasmussen is interested in the human subconscious; she strives to create a hyper-real world that addresses this gap between perception and reality. Her ornate ceramics may initially appear excessively sweet but upon closer inspection reveal themselves as impossible and absurd objects, imbued with the artist’s own dark narrative.
