Linda Pedersen & Henning Hamilton
As a duo, Linda and Henning create sculptures and installations drawing on the fantastical. In their individual practices, Henning uses found objects in romantic assemblages and Linda tells stories through wood craft. In their combined practice, both artists' individual styles are equally present and form a unique expression. Using craft techniques in materials they find in their immediate environment to tell banal stories is truly a brave method to get the viewers’ attention. However, there are messages hidden in plain sight that are witty and deeper than initially perceived.
