    Malene Hartmann Rasmussen

    I am working with mixed media sculpture, making and arranging multiple components into complex narrative tableaux of visual excess. 

    I try to create a place beyond reality, a deceitful echo of the real world, that bends the perception of what is real. 

    I want my work to look like a very skilled child could have made it, clumsy and elaborate at the same time. Initially the viewer may, mistakenly, be drawn to my figures thinking them to be toys; however closer examination reveals their rather darker narrative. 

    They invite you into an absurd and surreal world where things are not what they seem…
    A frozen moment that indicate a story and mood but at the same time is open for the viewer to filter their own references through, to make sense and contribute to the story themselves
