There is a cool formalism to the work of Anja Margrethe Bache.
Calm, cerebral and analytical, the work betrays her past studies in engineering
as she uses concrete, ceramics, steel and wood to investigate space.
Her geometries are linear, often computer generated or drawn with a ruler.
They are architectural. They define spaces that have defined boundaries.
Her work is minimalistic and relativistic.
The forms are not burdened with layers of meaning, but exist in their own purity.
Ms Bache’s pieces are a reflection of her environment, a distillation of form and an embodiment of personal space.
CHRISTOFFER PELLEY A New York City based artist and arts writer, that lives and works in Roma and Beijing, Beijing, 2015.

I am a Danish Visual Artist. I work with site-specific contextual material based art
investigating, posing questions, commenting, enhancing specific aspects and/or changing perspectives on the sites I work with.
My art and research is cross skilled and aim at creating meetings, reflections and dialogues.
I have exhibited nationally and Internationally at galleries, museums and in public spaces.
