  • Ane Lykke, Copenhagen

    “ I believe in the importance of challenging our perception, by creating spaces and objects, which engage and stimulate us. The way I challenge our perception, is by creating less static surroundings, which are more willing to communicate, by means of layering and processing of materials, strengthened by light and motion.”

    In forming light objects, the Danish artist and architect Ane Lykke focuses on how light can be shaped, filtered, and crystallized, thus becoming an object that conveys a subtle experience of luminosity.

    Ane Lykke has a vast experience creating site-specific works and large-scale installations in public spaces. The works are often three-dimensional, creating illusions of depth and infinity. Ane Lykke creates spaces and objects that engage the viewers and users. The works are artistic and at the same time functional with a long-term sustainable quality. Besides her site-specific projects, Ane Lykke investigates form, materials and the properties of light and shadow in her one-off pieces that are made for exhibitions, galleries and private collectors.

    Ane Lykke has made several important public commissions, such as the site-specific light Installation at the Rigshospitalet / National Hospital Copenhagen, Denmark, and the Site-specific Light Installation, Center for Cancer and Health, Copenhagen.

    Ane Lykke has received numerous awards, honors and grants for her work, including The Danish Lightning Award, 2012 and The Danish Arts Foundation’s 3-year working grant in 2010. At the award of the Danish Arts Foundation’s 3-year working grant, the jury stated: “The key to the pure, serene beauty of Ane Lykke’s works resides in her superb ability to play with the transition between the statically two-dimensional and the dynamically three-dimensional. (…) With their restrained simplicity, Ane Lykke’s works enter the souls of passersby as an unexpectedly strong and unforgettable poetic experience.”
