Carl Emil Jacobsen

After Danish sculptor Carl Emil Jacobsen (b. 1987) graduated from Kolding School of Design in 2012, his practice has oscillated between art and design, revolving around existentialism, ritualistic sophistication and solid craftsmanship. Working with found materials such as marquee from the heath, bricks from demolished buildings, chalkstone and marble, Carl Emil Jacobsen transforms massive stones into light, thin and crisp shells of fine color. His iron sculptures, some polished, some burnt, are created intuitively out of welding work without preliminary studies resulting in fragmented pieces hammered together to instinctive forms. Carl Emil Jacobsen is represented by Galerie Maria Wettergren in Paris and has been exhibited at Art Basel, PAD, Clay Museum of Ceramic Art Denmark, Mindcraft Exhibition in Milan, Patrick Parrish Gallery, Chamber Gallery, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Piscine and elsewhere.
