Malene Bach – Guest Artist at Danish Cultural Institute Opening
Malene Bach exhibit at Danish Cultural Institute opening in India
An artist working in close connection with architecture and interior design, Malene Bach truly makes art, that can impact people’s daily life. Bach has exhibited both paintings and functional objects, but her work also decorates several public buildings in Denmark. Her professional connection to India goes back to 2013, when she worked with architect Bijoy Jain in Mumbai, leading to the exhibition Demolition Series.
From 2016 and onwards, Malene Bach has been working on an exciting project in the Maharashtra District of India. Here, an academy for girls, Avasara Academy, has been built using local materials and sustainable building methods. Bach’s contribution has been creating a colour concept for the building, painting the rooftop water containers, ceilings and other surfaces of the academy, basing the concept of the decorations on local organic pigments.
At the DCI opening she will show her piece “Colour Culture”.
When working on projects that are part of the public sphere, Malene Bach takes into account the historical, cultural and geographical specifics of the building and or the area the project is situated in. Her latest completed work is a restoration of the Danish Snostrup Church, carefully bringing new life, and new light, to the beautiful medieval building.
