MEDAL ART

 

Inger Margrethe Larsen designs medals for wall decoration: medals which by their shape and size twist and simplify the medal concept with a strong sense of humor and colour. The medals are based on different themes which with their symbols tell about matters that we touch upon all the way through life. The medals thereby become a kind of decoration for appraisal of the facets of life. The material of the medals consists mainly of plastic, deliberately chosen to avoid the traditional ranking of medals in gold, silver and bronze.

 

Themes:

Medal for House and home • Medal for a Tribute to life • Medal for a Sense of humour •

Medal for Knowledge and learning • Medal for Gastronomy • Medal for Nature •

Medal for Travelling • Medal for Courage and strength • Medal for Good health •

Medal for Joy • Medal for Love • Medal for Everyday heroes

 

About the artist:

Inger Margrethe Larsen graduated from the Royal College of Art in London with a Master's Degree in Jewellery Design.

In 2003 she was awarded the 1879 Craftsman bronze medal and had her debut as a designer at the Biennale of Craft and Design at Trapholt in 2004. Since then, Inger Margrethe Larsen has presented her work at several Danish and international exhibitions, and latest she displayed a selection of her medal art at the Spring Exhibition 2015 at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

 

The hallmark of Inger Margrethe Larsen's work is her curiosity and urge to explore new materials and constantly feel challenged to search for new possibilities of expression.
