Malin Pierre Swedish, b. 1977
The concept of her work embodies the inherent contradictions of a medium that is neither liquid, nor solid. An amorphous solid, glass exists on a plane somewhere between two states of matter.
Swedish visual artist Malin Pierre creates organic glass sculptures, inspired by haute couture as well as the experience of softness contrasted with hardness. With an intense curiosity for materials; their surfaces, weights and textures – Pierre works in an impulsive and exploratory manner.
She is absorbed by the idea of how different materials appear and behave, and is motivated by the experience of their transition from soft to hard. The shapes and the structures are abstract with the feel of soft textile and all her originals are made out of fabric. Based on this, Pierre’s sculptural glass shapes manage to evoke the expression of sewing art and voluminous upholstery. The concept of her work embodies the inherent contradictions of a medium that is neither liquid, nor solid. An amorphous solid, glass exists on a plane somewhere between two states of matter.
Malin has a background as a scenographer and has freelanced within the field of television, movies and commercials for about 15 years before deciding to focus on her art full time.
Malin Pierre finished her bachelor -21 and her master in -23 from the department of Ceramics and Glass at the university of Konstfack. She was born 1977 and is based in Stockholm
