Arch, Geografisk Have, 2000
In connection with the Danish Ceramics Triennial in Kolding in the summer of 2000, I contributed to an exhibition in Geografisk Have, titled "Arches". The exhibition was dedicated to the ways in which ceramics can be used to shape the outdoor environment.
The arch is a universal building element that people throughout the ages have been occupied with and given a variety of expressions to.
To me the possibilities of the brick arch - both in construction and content - is of great importance.
One of the things an arch does, is to emphasize the passage from one sphere to another, it creates a zone of awareness.
It is such a passage in the landscape that my arch illustrates.
