Malene Hartmann Rasmussen works with ceramic figurative sculpture, making and arranging multiple components into complex narrative tableaux. She creates a place beyond reality, echoing ancient myths from the Nordic Lands. Highlights include the Danish Ceramic Residency at Victoria & Albert Museum, the installation “Black Celebration at V&A Medieval & Renaissance Galleries and a recent acquisition by Swindon Museum of the piece “Nightfall” for permanent display in their Contemporary Studio Ceramics Collection.
