Works – 2077
EPICYCLE by Maria Sparre-Petersen & Jacob Sebastian Bang
The piece Circle of Desire # I by Jacob Sebatian Bang and Maria Sparre-Petersen – Toyama, Japan
The piece Circle of Desire # I by Jacob Sebatian Bang and Maria Sparre-Petersen was selected for the Toyama International Glass Exhibition 2021.
Circle of desire # I is part of a series of works resulting from the collaboration between Architect Jacob Sebastian Bang and glass artist Maria Sparre-Petersen. The duo is exploring creation of form in the intersection between architectural representation, crafts realization and circular principles of upcycling waste material. Hereby they challenge existing aesthetic norms within the world of art glass by incorporating conceptual ideas embracing failures and flaws.
The aesthetic ambition in this series of works is referencing architectural scales, experimental processes and a sensitivity to material characteristics- and qualities. While maintaining parameters of precision in formal composition and strength in artistic expression, the work accentuates marks left by production processes and emphasizes the polycromatic inconsistency of recycled containerglass.
