Malene Hartmann Rasmussen installation supported by by Granada Foundation & Cass Art


For the month of August, our window will be brought to life with a unique installation by Malene Hartmann Rasmussen. This is very generously supported by Granada Foundation and local art supplies retailer, Cass Art.

I am working with mixed media sculpture, making and arranging multiple components into complex narrative tableaux of visual excess. The dialogue between components and the way one’s unconscious can direct the composition interests me.

 I try to create a place beyond reality, a deceitful echo of the real world, that bends the perception of what is real. I want my work to look like a very skilled child could have made it, clumsy and elaborate at the same time. 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…

A frozen moment that indicate a story and mood but at the same time is open for the viewer to filter their own references through, to make sense and contribute to the story themselves. My aim is to create a visual poetry based on my own personal story. // Malene Hartmann Rasmussen
