ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Malene Bjelke

Malene Bjelke

Malene Bjelke is a Danish sculptor whose work with stoneware and figures stems from extensive experience in the theatre. She graduated from the Danish School of Design in 1993 and, in addition to her work as a sculptor, she has worked with theatre and costumes for more than 20 years.

Malene Bjelke works extensively with human life and state of mind, expressed through the body. In the interaction between the figure and its surroundings, she seeks to uncover the inner landscape of human beings, where we recognise ourselves. Since 2008, Malene Bjelke has worked from her own studio at Kronborg Castle, creating simple yet expressive figures depicting human archetypes of all ages. Her sculptures therefore often model different human characters, mindsets and thoughts, and the interaction between a figure and the surrounding space is an essential theme in her work.

With the Character series, Malene Bjelke proudly celebrates and interprets Kähler’s artistic legacy, which is kept alive by repeatedly introducing bold and artistic elements that are inspired by the past and designed for the present. While working on the characters for Kähler, she looked at human life and while modelling, she focused on the small authentic biases that help create dynamics and mysteriously uncover the beauty and diversity of the characters.
