Baadsvig Ørmen, Lene

Skulptur

Lene Baadsvig Ørmen (b. 1984) mainly works with sculpture. Her work reference antecedent forms of life and further explores the past through various sources, materials and cultures. The sculptures are evocative of primordial landscapes, evident by the ancestral morphologies and elementary organic forms. Simultaneously her formal language alternates between the heritage of modernist sculpture and popular aesthetics. With their seemingly unrefined object quality and ambiguous temporality, the sculptures seem to hover in a space outside time – somewhere between the past and possible futures.
