Marie-Louise Kristensen, 2016, Denmark

The man in the hat

My creative process and the narrative way of working enables me to bond with, reflect on and understand the world around me. I work with impressions and moods and combine them with quotations from the world of art. My works deal with design icons, which comprise a static and recognizable form, also hold a diffused memory and surreal narrative… My works are created in close dialogue with what is currently taking place around me. The renovation of my bathroom introduced me to a whole new world of taps. Alongside this, I’m fascinated by the headlines in the breaking news feed and the spam-box in my e-mail program; I handpick texts from the subject fields, thereby collecting both titles and inspiration for my Works.
