THE CURIO – Camilla Monsrud

Camilla Monsrud (1984) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts of Design with an MA in (Furniture and Space) Design, 2016. In her work as a designer, she works both theoretical and practical, and often a personal story or situation is the starting point for Camilla Monsrud’s at once sensual, poetic and functional work. A series of dialogues and interviews about death and the ritual of parting was the foundation of her work The Rebirth of the Urn, a series of minimalist, sculptural urns in materials like wood, metal, clay, wax, glass and bronze. The beautiful works force our attention towards the taboo subject and our emotions, memories and associations linked to death. For The Curio Monsrud will show new additions to her graduation project.
