Lene Bødker


My Inner Garden
Referring to the French expression, ‘jardin secret’, Lene Bødker invites you into her personal garden, a room of the soul, where big existential questions are explored.
You enter a universe of grey, green and brown humanly glass objects in sharp contrast to a sculpture of voluptuous red breasts, and a large ethereal, pale blue crown.
To Lene Bødker, the garden is a metaphor for a sanctuary, where ideas and dreams can grow and unfold, projecting pictures of the eternal cycle of life: birth, death, how everything is interconnected.
Lene’s language of expression is rich in symbolism: The Snake (”You did It”, 2013 – 2017), represents transition from the innocence of childhood to confrontation with the shadow side of ourselves and others. The Breasts (“Gaia 2016-17) pays homage to the unconditional love and strength of the mother. The crown (“Crown” 2017) points to the symbolic images of an angel, a child, a figure standing by a tree and another figure crowned with a halo.
In her latest works the spectator is led beyond the visible. The series (“Behind the Veil”, 2021) was inspired by the passing of a dear friend. Here Lene Bødker further explores the abstraction of the essence of human nature and the journey of the soul. These objects float, move, merge, dissolve.
The displayed objects are surrounded by two-dimensional scaled reliefs from 2020, where bark, cones, straws and carved wood create structures bathed in light forming a sensuous feeling of the magic of life.
In their raw compactness the works consciously invite more than the most banal possibilities of glass. In its essence, transparency and vulnerability, glass mirrors human emotion and life’s big questions while raw female strength embraces the mystery.
Lene Bødker is a renowned Danish glass artist. She has won a number of international awards: in 2007 she was awarded probably the most distinguished prize in the world of glass art, The Grand Prize Kanazawa Glass Award, and in 2012 she was presented with the Danish Art Fondation’s Lifelong Honors Award. Furthermore, Lene Bødker received the Inga and Ejvind Kold Christensen Prize and the Anne Marie Telmanyi Prize.
Lene Bødker is represented in many museums, among others Designmuseum Danmark, Glassmuseum Hentrich, Victoria & Albert Museum, Designcenter Ishigawa, Holstebro Art Museum, and Musée des Arts Décoratifs.
