Galerie Maria Wettergren is delighted to announce that Rasmus Fenhann has been awarded the prestigious Inga & Ejvind Kold Christensen Prize, Denmark’s most important prize of its kind. The Kold Christensen Foundation strives to support artists and designers in the fields of contemporary art, furniture, architecture and crafts.
Rasmus Fenhann’s work is currently exhibited at Galerie Maria Wettergren, Paris, for his solo exhibition Light, until 23 July 2022.
Creating pieces with an equal focus on sculptural and functional qualities, Rasmus Fenhann works almost exclusively with wood, which he carefully selects for each project. His process combines traditional and sometimes near-forgotten craft techniques with advanced technology and tooling. Fenhann’s main source of inspiration is traditional Japanese woodwork and Danish cabinetmaking, with his works often incorporating personal interpretations of select aspects of these craft traditions.
