Description/

In one of Astrid Krogh’s most recent important works, ‘Square of the Universe’ (2020), Krogh applies a very pure, matte blue pigment to a fine surface of aluminium, which she manipulates dynamically and forcefully to allow the pigment to settle and coalesce in distinct ways, creating variable textures before it dries. The result is a rich surface that constantly changes according to the surrounding light and our perspective. Like a collision of stars, the work explodes before our eyes, and it is no coincidence that its very materials, the precious metals, are products of this force of nature. This abstraction of the universe – mineral, oceanic and cosmic at the same time – shines and breathes like a second nature. Indeed, the cosmic phenomena that shape our universe are a great source of inspiration for Astrid Krogh, who has been in correspondence for several years with the pioneering astrophysicist, Dr. Margaret Geller, from the Centre for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. By exploring a large specter of materials and techniques, Krogh thrives to reveal, in an almost alchemist way, the deep poetic feeling and grace of the Universe through the metamorphosis of these materials.

“Arne Jacobsen once said that light gives all things their presence, highlighting the important role it plays in bringing surfaces to life” – Bradley Quinn Astrid Krogh, a classically trained designer has taken Jacobson’s observation further by integrating light into her work rather than using it for effect. "I use light both as a material and a technology, the presence of light is an essential component of my work as light enables my textiles to pulsate, change patterns and create an entire spectrum of ever changing colour ways" “My reference point is often Gobelin tapestries or ancient kelim carpets, from a distance their colour ways appear to be distinct, but a closer examination reveals how the boundaries between them contain entire spectrums of colour”
