Lene Bødker — à la Maison Louis Carré



Lene Bødker
à la Maison Louis Carré

Past: May 28 → September 11, 2016

The companions of someone who works with glass are its inherent beauty and the immateriality of its light. Two qualities which constitute the glass sculptor’s challenge as she tries to master them, give meaning to them — in other words: to justify them.

Lene Bødker is the author of a powerful and fine work, which carries an almost recluse light through a “marking” of the glass surface where only “windows” open on its interior beauty. An author of numerous commissions for different places, churches, schools and public administrations, the artist possesses an acute sense of space. Her work shows parallels with Aalto’s modernist architecture.

Maison Louis Carré, close to Paris, was designed in 1959 by Finnish artist Alvar Aalto for art dealer and gallery director Louis Carré (1897-1977). The building is an essential landmark in the understanding of Aalto’s architecture and design.
