Anja Franke, 2014

The artwork “Hole from my Garden” taken from a bronze casting of a hole dug at InstantHerlev institute. The piece represents the idea for how ‘something’ is perceived as ‘nothing’, such as a hole in the ground, which in turn, can bring a new value — as it appears to us — and perhaps now as a bronze object. Which as a material, we associate it with greater cultural value and particular traditions in art.
