Ida Elke works from an independent studio situated in the woods in the Danish countryside. Here she forms singular and limited editions of furniture and handmade objects.
With a background within contemporary arts, she uses the expectations we have to our furnitures, and reflect them in a context where the function becomes a media for the sensory og aesthetic experience. The function becomes the category that defines the space to act within. Her work is a challenge of that space, with unconventional choices rooted in visual and tactile perception.
»My practice so far, has been orientated around slow processes and handmade objects. I am interested in how we connect with objects, and the influence objects and surroundings has to our consciousness«
