I do not know how I came accross Kristine Mandsberg, maybe instagram, a deco magazine or one of her pieces of work in the middle of Copenhagen. What I know is that I love the way she perceives the world and transforms it into art.
After designing for HAY, IKEA or Ferm Living among other many brands, she has an exhibition ongoing in Officinet (Copenhagen) that soon will be shown at CIFF kids Fair. If you are around, do not miss ot!
What I like the most of Kristine Mandsberg’s work is the way she plays with color, shapes, dimensions and perspectives. Maybe it sounds funny, but her work makes me happy.
One of her last works was a wall decoration in the center of the city, covering the metro construction. She created a pattern using not only colors and shapes, but 164 panels that brough 3D perspective to the decoration. That way the illustration changed according to the position and the angle the pedestrian was looking at it. She filled Copenhagen grey’s day with playfulness and joy.
In her new exhibition, Please touch, the audience is encourage to feel and touch the art pices, to move them around, making the exhibition become alive, evolving and changing.
Every person will feel it in a different way, according to what they touch and move, their height or if they enjoy it stand up or at ground level.
I really think that this is the perfect exhibition for everyone, but specially for children. A perfect way to approach them to art.
Go to Please Touch and tell us your experience. We would love to know how and what you feel about it.
