OCEAN – A Look at Marine Life through Glass
23/4-3/11

”Seductive sensory machine” is Italian artist Maria Grazia Rosin’s own worlds to describe her strangely compelling combination of jellyfish-like life forms and starry nebulae of the Universe. The installation “Gelatine LuX” will be the first installation to meet visitors at Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, when the forthcoming OCEAN exhibition opens.
An underwater forest of luminous jellyfish made from glass, a ”glass-mation” film starring a marine biologist tending an undersea hospital and a collection of natural history displaying non-existent species… With OCEAN – A Look at Marine Life through Glass Glasmuseet Ebeltoft sets the scene for a unique experience, with an extensive exhibition and coherent programme of events. In the exhibition, 12 internationally renowned artists, who primarily express their ideas in glass, create a versatile story about the world’s oceans. The exhibition will be supplemented with an exciting programme of events, putting the ocean and man’s relationship with it in focus. OCEAN is Glasmuseet Ebeltoft’s most ambitious project to date.
In addition to this installation, works made by artists from the US, Australia, Germany, The Netherlands, Slovakia and Japan are represented, all of which primarily express themselves in glass but several of which are also including other materials such as video and sound.
Denmark is also represented in the exhibition with the successful artist, Steffen Dam, who has received several awards for his work in glass and who is represented in various collections including Corning Museum of Glass, New York, The Victoria & Albert Museum, London and The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo, Norway. In his series with titles such as ”Marine Group” and ”Flower Blocks” he describes the world as he sees it, combining the systematic methods of a scientist with the artist’s sense of poetry. His collection of natural history containing non-existent species and imaginary specimens he comments on the persistent but vain attempts of humanity to categorize a world, the full complexity of which can never be captured.

Artists represented in the exhibition: Christina Bothwell (USA) Steffen Dam (Denmark) Mark Eliott (Australia) Jack McGrath (Australia) Katherine Gray (USA) Anja Isphording (Germany) Thérèse Lahaie (USA) Palo Macho (Slovakia) Maria Grazia Rosin (Italy) Janine C. Schimkat (The Netherlands) Raven Skyriver (USA) Hiroshi Yamano (Japan)
