Selector Statement

Covered in loud graffiti proclaiming the artist’s phone number, and housing aggressive oversized glass, Fredrik Nielsen’s installations are easy to see as macho and self-aggrandizing. But to read them that way is to miss the point. Nielsen uses this rebellious exterior to assert the continued presence of Swedish glassworking in the face of rapidly disappearing factory jobs.
