Commissioned Art

Commissioned art

Commissioned art projects are challenging tasks with a wealth of general factors such as economy, transportation, cooperation, etc. The initial investigative work requires care and precision as well as a creative overview to gather the necessary information before the presentation of a fully illuminated artistic project can take place. The starting point is always the specific building and its historical framework and in order to get the full understanding of the work's importance to space and architecture a model is often needed. Studies of physical factors such as climate, durability, cleaning and risk of vandalism is of utmost importance like a fruitful collaboration between client, architect and artist provides an invaluable framework for a good result.
 

Artistic practice

Artistic Practice in commissioned art by Birgit Oestergaard originates from the daily work in the studio and is an ongoing process - almost like working in a laboratory. Inspiration can come from anywhere but I tend to work myself into a material and a theme to the point where I really know what I'm dealing with – in all aspects.
 

Artistic expression

In recent years, Birgit Oestergaard immersed themselves in the development of artistic expression with high-tech lighting equipment such as RGB-controlled LEDs and fiber optics. Creating conceptual sculptures and two-dimensional works in which the colors are mainly derived from the electric light, to express a modernity with the universal consciousness, as objects equipped with lights seem to have several life because of the rhythmic changing daylight and as such the piece appears with an ever-pulsating flow of moments.
