The glazes of Gitte Jungersen
3. October 2019 The glazes of Gitte Jungersen
On Thursday October 3 at 5-7PM we open the doors for a presentation of Gitte Jungersen’s very special ceramic universe in the room far back on the exhibition floor.
It melts, boils, bubbles, and cracks in Jungersen’s ceramic, or perhaps more precisely, glaze works. Because for Jungersen the glaze is the focal point.
She mixes her own glazes from scratch and experiments with the chemical properties of different minerals. The glaze has a high sensitivity to heating and cooling and results in intense and unpredictable outcomes.
In her works, the glaze flows voluminously – often in dramatic colors. It is a kind of frozen moment in which it is difficult to decide whether something is decomposed or perhaps rather created. The alternating structures of the surfaces reminds of everything from natural phenomena such as lava, clay and stones to the culture’s waste products in glossy surfaces and scatter colors.
The exhibition is on display until Sunday, November 3rd.
