About The Artwork

‘The Glass Rider’ symbolizes the fragility as well as the indestructible nature of the rider that never stops re-creating him/herself in the current speed of life and its consumptions. ‘The Glass Rider’ sculpture is very personal, it is a kind of autobiographical reflection of myself, representing my personal ride through life and the vision of Studio-Re-Creation, which is about preserving memories and materials, giving them a new life and a new function. The sculpture is constructed out of broken drinking glasses and bottles of liquor, tight up together with stainless steel wire, and welded pieces of washing machine drums and serving trays . It took over 400hrs. to complete and more than 600m. wire!

Spreading intangible, embodied, and personal forms of knowledge is intricately related to how I strive to preserve cherished memories. An essential element in my work is the contrast between the rational functionality of the materials and the emotional meaning of objects. Transforming the belongings of a client by integrating their personal identities into iconic objects, I interfere with this relationship changing it’s meaning. The new piece becomes a carrier for memories and knowledge that is cherished and fostered into the future. Transforming into a vessel for the owners’ energy rather then just a use-object. Every art piece I make has multiple layers of meaning that transcend its material and tactile characteristics, like an object’s history, the memories of the owner en the value that is given to a ‘thing’. The exterior of a thing does not reveal the affinity one can have with an object and how valuable it is. This resides with in the eye of the beholder and is expressed through a dialogue with others.
