Peters Projects is pleased to present a Danish mother-and-daughter pairing of porcelain works by Bodil Manz and contemporary designs by Cecilie Manz.
BODIL MANZ (born 1943) is an internationally acclaimed porcelain artist known for her astonishing use of ultra-thin, translucent eggshell porcelain to create distinctive cylindrical forms, anchored by bold, geometric abstractions in a style evocative of Mondrian. Bodil’s technical ingenuity is characterized by a tenuous thinness but is also balanced with harmonic design elements that can be observed from every angle.
CECILIE MANZ (born 1972) is a leading Danish designer named Designer of the Year 2018 by Maison et Objet in Paris and recipient of the E. Kold Christensen’s Award of Honour, Finn Juhls Architectural Prize 2007 and Bruno Mathsson Prize 2009. Cecilie extends our understanding of the function and aesthetics of design challenging established concepts. Awarding her the Crown Prince Couple’s Culture Prize in 2014, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark commented: “The fascinating thing about Cecilie Manz’s design is that despite the diversity of her work, there is a clearly discernible tone. The basic idea is always strong, evoking associations with historical realizations in design while clearly reflecting the present.”
Both artists are represented in numerous international museum collections including the Los Angeles County Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Vitra Design Museum, Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Seattle Art Museum, Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art. This is their first exhibition in Santa Fe.
