Museum of Glass Tacoma
Seattle, Wasington, USA
Artist in Residence 23 – 27 July 2008
The project I wish to develop during the residency in Tacoma involves blown glass, regular clear crystal, various optical molds and color in rods. By using this unique opportunity to work with the glass blowing team at Tacoma, I wish to continue my investigation of the intrinsic merits of glass such as optics and transparency. The goal with this project is to investigate, experiment and to develop a new body of work. Using the expertise of the team, I wish to experiment with techniques and further investigate and develop the blown form, optic effects, surface texture and tactility, as well as colors and transparency in blown glass objects, with focus on organic, but yet defined form.

European Glass context 2008
Bornholms Kunstmuseum, Denmark
Project manager – September 2008
European Glass Context 2008 forms part of a biennial symposium for European Contemporary glass and ceramics. This biennial symposium takes place on the Island of Bornholm, Denmark in September 2008. For the first time this event presents contemporary European glass. Through exhibitions, conference, workshops, master classes and a technical display an opportunity will arise to discuss and experience the situation of European glass today. 3 exhibitions will each present 160 artists and designers from 30 European Countries in the categories: Established artists, Emerging artists and Industrial Design. The exhibiting artists have all been carefully selected by a National commissioner from their relevant country.

FAB5

Kvinde er kvinde værst. Denne vending, som mænd (og kvinder) har brugt til at cementere en dødssyg fordom om kvinder, er ’not’ og umoderne i dag, hvor networking og tværfagligt samarbejde ikke bare er trendy men nødvendigt for at bringe os videre.
Et eksempel på et fantastisk samarbejde er kunstnergruppen FAB5, som består af fem kvinder, som forstår at udnytte hinandens kompetencer til fælles bedste.

FAB5 består af de fem glaskunstnere Marianne Buus, Susanne Jøker Johnsen, Micha Karlslund, Line Gottfred Petersen og Lotte Thorsøe, og de fortæller om sig selv: Vi har dannet arbejds- og udstillingsgruppen FAB5 som en forudsætning for at kunne gennemføre store projekter som Collect. (The international art fair for contemporary objects) på V&A i London. Her skulle utallige og mangeartede arbejdsopgaver inden for logistik, planlægning, finansiering og produktudvikling løses, inden vi kunne stå klar til ferniseringen. Vi har gennem snart 20 år arbejdet sammen, med og for hinanden – og det er det gode samarbejde vi søger.
