This piece represents a hybrid form of design, involving textile art, sculpture and architecture. The work is a sound absorbing installation and a result of Bendixen PhD thesis on the possibilities of an acoustic textile design, in which a folded structure increases the sound absorbing property of the textile.

    Cecilie Bendixen

    Born in Denmark 1975

     

    The Danish architect Cecilie Bendixen is considered as one of the most innovating textile artists of Scandinavia. She made a Ph.D. research project on textiles and sound, underlining two main questions: how sound can be shaped by textile and conversely how textiles can be shaped by sound? These questions have given form to a series of sound absorbing textile sculptures and installations, such as the monumental installation Draped Nimbostratus (2013) as well as the delicate thread sculpture Sun Disc, 2015) and sculptural lightings based on draped textiles (Volume, 2015) and (Much, 2016). Cecilie Bendixen’s interdisciplinary approach to design, involving science, arts, crafts and architecture makes her an important contributor to the contemporary art scene.

    Cecilie Bendixen has exhibited in various contexts such as the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibitions, Design Miami and Nordjyllands Kunstmuseum. She was nominated for the Nordic Textile Awards in 2017, and the same year she received the Bindesboell Medal.
