Hasle Carafe & Glass
Appearing almost like a scar that disrupts the smooth surface of the glass, the invasive nature of the sandblast inscription relates back to Hasle’s youth, when she went through a dark period as a cutter. Thus, Hasle’s pieces feed on narratives: her own personal stories, as well as the ones you read into them.
The pieces play on dualities: the delicate container that holds its liquid and the individual trying to hold it together and not succumb to the pressures of society. By means of materiality and immateriality, Hasle draws our attention to fragility – in both glass and in people.
Hasle was born in Denmark in 1979 and educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts and the Funen Art Academy. Since the summer of 2018, Hasle has been living and working in Greenland. In recent years, she has had solo shows at Horsens Art Museum, Vejen Art Museum and the Brandts Museum of Art & Visual Culture in Denmark, among many others. Her most recent solo show was ’Jeg savner dig’ at Galleri Tom Christoffersen in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2018.
