ATRIUM. THE LIVING POT

ATRIUM. THE LIVING POT

13.10.2018 – 31.03.2019

 

 

In 2015, ATRIUM was formed as a creative forum for a group of Danish ceramicists who wanted to examine, challenge and reinterpret the slightly belittled flower pots. Together and with great passion, they have been working on the potentials of the planters.

 

The exhibition ATRIUM. THE LIVING POT is the result of the group’s collective work with different shapes of pots from 2015 to 2018. The outcome is a coherent installation where the story of an archetype within ceramics is unfolded in new ways with inspiration from and in interaction with different types of plants. The focal point for the group is the skilled ceramic crafts which incessantly call for new shapes, expressions and techniques.

 

The ceramicists of ATRIUM are: Anja Bache, Pia Baastrup, Lis Biggas, Vibeke Buciek, Ane-Katrine von Bülow, Lea-Mi Engholm, Vinni Hedegaard Frederiksen, Inger Heebøll, Vibeke Krog, Ann Linnemann, Lone Skov Madsen, Helle Rittig, Lise Seier Petersen, Tine Secher and Mette Marie Ørsted.
