Marie Lund’s piece is composed by two pieces, connected by a third: three parts that together enable the opening and/or closing of a space, the junction or the partition of two areas. This “useful” sculpture evokes the poetics of the found object, as well as the folklore of Belgian surrealism, and the ambiguous magnetism of sea creatures.
Shells do play an important part in Marie Lund’s work, because of the complexity of their forms, the plays of light they provoke, and the undeterminacy of the spaces they create. Her research on such volumes is visible here again, as the scale of the bronze mollusk is uncannily exaggerated to match the size of the human palm.
Marie Lund is a Danish artist based in London. Her installation work engages with manual techniques such as casting, copper hammering, waving, in a conceptual though emotional complexity. She is represented by Croy Nielsen (Wien), José Garcia (Mexico City), and Nicolai Wallner (Copenhagen).
