Anne Vibeke Mou

Newcastle & Gateshead

I work across sculpture and drawing finding possibilities in the nature of materials through their elemental transformation into glass.

Locating glass firmly in the site-specific and event-based, I use glass composition and diamond point engraving by hand to transmute botanical and mineral elements into objects that weave together eclectic histories and ancient landscapes in contemporary contexts.
