Marie Lund’s oeuvre is characterized by a multifaceted approach to the discipline of sculpture. She often works with found objects whose back-story is embedded in the material. The artist transforms these into her own shapes by adding or subtracting, accentuating marks or blurring them, dissolving structures or revealing new qualities.

Her Jahresgabe for GAK, entitled Hand Full, comprises two bronze casts of the artist’s own pants pockets. In a process of reversal, the intimate interior is turned inside out, substance being transformed into emptiness and emptiness into substance. Coins, a lighter, seams and fabric wrinkles now only appear as imprints – a handful of the ephemeral everyday, preserved in precious bronze.
