For Design Miami/ Basel, Martin Bodilsen Kaldahl has created two large scale ceramic sculptures specifically for the fair. Kaldahl works with the expressive power of abstract, non-narrative form to directly impact the viewer’s sensuous experience of the artwork. The motif is always clear in its simplicity – you see what you see. From a seemingly insignificant starting point the work builds up to occupy space, bit by bit, in a type of surrealist automatic drawing in three dimensions. The time-dimension of its own making thus becomes part of its monumental presence and intense energy. Kaldahl chooses to emphasize the physical joints between the segments of his sculptures, heightening their visual impact through the addition of a glazed “skin” that emphasizes texture.
