Description/

The practice of Danish sculptor, Carl Emil Jacobsen, oscillates between art and design, exploring existentialism, ritualistic sophistication and solid craftsmanship. In his wall totems ‘Vedhaengt’ (meaning “pendant”), Jacobsen works with found materials such as field stones, chalkstone, marble and bricks from demolished buildings, transforming these massive stones into fine powder pigments of intense colours. As an ode to the richness of natural colours in the Nordic landscape, Jacobsen brings new life to the powdered stone by converting it into layers of pigment, applied over polystyrene and steel structures. These sculptures involve a special emphasis on colour, light and shadow, and the ability of a form to enhance the experience of a specific colour and texture. Inspired by the dictum of late Danish sculptor Willy Ørskov’s theory that “the content of the sculpture is sculpture”, his nonfigurative sculptures exist on their own terms as abstract, physical forms fostering experiential connection over intellectual interference in the elastic borderland between nature and culture.

"The Danish sculptor Carl Emil Jacobsen was born in 1987 and graduated from Kolding School of Design in 2012. Since then, his practice has oscillated between art and design, revolving around existentialism, ritualistic sophistication and solid craftsmanship. Inspired by the dictum of late Danish sculptor Willy Ørskov’s theory that “the content of the sculpture is sculpture”, his nonfigurative sculptures exist on their own terms as abstract, physical forms fostering experiential connection over intellectual interference in the elastic borderland between nature and culture. Carl Emil Jacobsen’s works have been exhibited in various museums, galleries and art fairs, including Clay Museum of Ceramic Art, Denmark; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Mindcraft Exhibition; Milan, Patrick Parrish Gallery, New York; Chamber Gallery, New York; Piscine, Aarhus; Galerie Maria Wettergren, Paris; Design Miami/Basel; PAD London/Paris. His works can be found in the collection of the Danish Arts Foundation as well as prestigious private collections worldwide. "
