Architectural fantasies

  • • At the age of 18 Stine became hooked on glassblowing
  • • In 2018 she had a solo show at the Hellen Gallery in New York
  • • The Danish Arts Foundation gave her a three-year work grant in June 2019

Fascinated by glass since she was a teenager, Stine Bidstrup studied at the Danish School of Design on the island of Bornholm and at the Rhodes Island School of Design in the US. She now uses an array of traditional techniques including glassblowing, glass casting, fusing and stretching, cold working, gluing and painting to create work that straddles sculpture, craft and installation art, and which is inspired and informed by the history of architecture and design. “Glass is an extremely difficult material and it requires determined willpower to continue working with it,” she says. But she sticks with it “because glass triggers curiosity and an engaged and complex viewing relationship between the object and the audience.”

Architectural Glass Fantasies

This piece is part of a series that revives a specific architectural glass fantasy based on the vision of the German writer Paul Scheerbart, the architect Bruno Taut, and a group of likeminded artists called The Crystal Chain Letters. Stine's sculptures aim to give physical form to their written thoughts about a crystalline, colourful glass architecture and the potential colossal impact on society this could have.
