Kristian Dahlgaard

Born 1958. Lives and works in Copenhagen.

Kristian Dahlgaard works extensively with the sculpture's weight and the absence of mass. Dahlgaard’s work consists of uniform sculptures based on one form. They consist of a myriad of small identical bricks, which has been put together in layers and different forms - again and again. For each time the first, original form is slightly moved so the final form is made of a network of surfaces and holes. One figure can easily consist of over 1000 individual components that all individually capture the light. Through the consistent replica of form the artists reaches a reflective grace similar to running water or a flames movement and sound in a fire.
