I am so excited to announce that I won the Jerwood Makers Open Award 2015. A new installation will soon be taking form alongside works by fellow RCA alumni Zachary Eastwood-Bloom, Jasleen Kaur, Ian McIntyre and Studio Silo

From the Press release:
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2011, Malene Hartmann Rasmussen has explored the use of alternative narratives within her mixed media works. Expanding on these initial experiments, for Jerwood Makers Open Malene will stage a theatrical installation, immersing individual ceramic sculptures in a surreal woodland setting. Combining sculpture and photography, the piece will play with viewer’s perceptions of reality.

The artists were selected by an independent panel comprising Grant Gibson, Editor of Crafts magazine; Isobel Dennis, Director of New Designers - the UK's most important graduate design exhibition; and Michael Marriott, leading product designer and curator.

On the submission process and final selection, the panel commented:
‘Whittling down the finalists from this year’s record number of entries was genuinely tough. In the end the five chosen displayed a high level of technical skill combined with imagination and intellectual adventure. They are all attempting to take their practice in a new direction. 2015’s Jerwood Makers Open promises to be an exhilarating exhibition.’
