Light & Shadow is a theme exhibition which presents a selection of works from the permanent collection, focussing on the interplay between light and shadow. Among the works are Danish artist Lise Autogena’s ”Spine 1”, a sculpture in cast glass lit from underneath, American artist Ian Micah Gilula’s ”Uranium 238” – a poisonous green cast work shaped as a torso, and a completely new work created by Sydney Cash from USA who works in a very original style using light and shadow and a hanging installation by Danish Steffen Tast.
Today, the permanent collection comprises more than 1500 objects donated or lent to the museum by 700 internationally recognised glass artists from all over the world. A new selection of some of the major works in the collection are presented on the first floor in the old building. Among those are groundbreaking works by some of the pioneers of studio glass as well as the spectacular Cosmic Space, created by Tróndur Patursson from The Faroe Islands, donated to the museum in 2011.
