Dalam kesenian berkeramiknya, Ane Fabricius menjadi lain sebab karya-karyanya jarang menyentuh atau membentuk lempung secara langsung. Modus operandinya dalam bekerja lebih menyerupai peneliti kebudayaan yang membongkar makna-makna sosial yang tertanam dalam obyek-obyek keramik yang kita kenali pada kehidupan sehari-hari. Dalam citarasa tata latar dan efek visual yang halus, karya-karya Ane Fabricius membingkai alam benda yang memperpanjang gambaran psikologi manusia. Pendekatannya didukung oleh keutamaan persoalan subyek penceritaan, sehingga bahan dan teknik menjadi cair dan mengikuti. Karya-karya Ane Fabricius menjadi seni konsepp di mana gagasan itu sendiri menentukan bentuk.

Ia bekerja dengan medium patung, instalasi, video, dan fotografi, dengan keramik sebagai yang utama. Berbasis di Kolding, Denmark, ia telah banyak berpameran secara internasional. Ia juga merupakan anggota dari kelompok seni VERSUS.

Ane Fabricius Christiansen’s ceramic practice is unusual in the sense that rarely are her fingers directly in the material. Her modus operandi is more that of the cultural analyst who decodes social meanings embedded in ceramic objects that we recognise from everyday situations. Added to this is a keen eye for stage-setting and visual effects, with the result that her works are very precisely framed as a type of still life of human psychology. Her practice is supported by the story that she wants to tell, and material and technique are therefore wholly subordinated to the overarching idea. Film, photo, flea market finds, tennis i… no approach is alien in the work of creating meaning. Thus she works conceptually, which is to say that the idea itself defines the form of the work.

 Ane Fabricius Christiansen works with sculpture, installation, video and photography, with clay as her main material. She is based in Kolding, Denmark, and has exhibited in galleries and museums both in Denmark and internationally. Furthermore she is member of the prize-winning art group VERSUS.

Head Crutch

Ceramics, Wood 15 x 15 x 140 – 170 cm 2016

Head Crutch One Size is a physical and psychological aid, which acts as a form of support or extension of the body and mind. The head crutch can be adjusted in height to suit anyone who needs to rest his or hers head. The artwork relates to happiness and unhappiness, normal and abnormal, and the fine line between these extremes.
