Join us to meet the artist Anne Vibeke Mou in her studio and hear about her working practice and latest projects.

Anne Vibeke Mou’s measured, almost ritualistic approach to making art involves the application of many tiny marks on a surface following a rigidly definedprocess.Imagesevolve intuitivelyas densities of marks vary over lengthy periods of time. Intense repetition of individual marks reveals a paradoxical collision of the apocalyptic with the sublime.

A recent commission for a church window at St John’s Healey, Northumberland, resulted in a glass sheet covered with thousands of tiny impact marks made by hitting the glass with a tungsten point. The result is a swirling, cloud-like form, which can be viewed from both inside the church and from outside. The work, along with a new window by artist James Hugonin, won the 2011Art in a Religious Context award from the charity Art & Christian Enquiry.

Danish born Anne Vibeke Mou completed her MA of Arts at Royal College of Art, London, in 2005. She received a Visiting Arts/Arts Council England International Fellowship Award at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design, Prague, in 2005 and became artist-in-residence at University of Sunderland and National Glass Centre (NGC) in 2006/2007. In the autumn of 2007 she was artist in residence at Upernavik Museum in North West Greenland. Exhibitions include a solo show at the NGC, Sunderland, 2007; Draw a Line, Follow it…at Allenheads Contemporary Art, 2008 and The Glass Delusion, NGC in 2010.
