Krogh, Marit

Sculpture

As a sculptor I am an observer of the surroundings. I capture in my memory the urban life, people and situations I see, and try to recreate these when working in my atelier. I am particularly interested in all the electronics people carry around everywhere, and the way many are so engulfed in these, while they are hardly aware they are in a public space. Short moments of peoples lives are highlighted when they pass through the slow process of modelling before they are cast in bronse and replaced out into public space.

Planned projects and exhibitions

I work on a group of sculptures intended for public spaces. The working title is: “Moments from our time.” The scuplture “Girl with headphones” at Bankplassen in Oslo is the first in this series.
