'Taking and Giving Shape', a lecture by artist Marie Lund
Date: 10 November 2014
The sculptures that recall legs are not legs. They are the inside of a pair of jeans. They are not my legs, but take up the space my legs normally take up. They stand the way I do, upright, feet on the ground. And they stand where I usually stand.
The sculptures that recall heads have been chiseled from found and weathered sculptures. As an act of restoration pieces of the pieces have been removed until arriving at yet untouched layers of the material – marble, alabaster and hard wood. They are heavy and hard to carve.
Marie Lund (b. 1976) is a Danish artist, trained in Architecture, now living and working in London. She teaches in the BA Fine Art Active Material studio at the CASS and shows with Laura Bartlett Gallery.
