Maria Zahle: Sails and Dogs
The Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award commission
2 October - 7 October 2014
New Walk Museum & Art Gallery
Maria Zahle has been chosen to undertake the 2014 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award (ARMA) Artist Residency at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery. The Danish-born artist has undertaken the prestigious residency during 2014.
Maria has been involved in the delivery of more than 30 workshops with more than 2000 participants that have informed the development of the commission.
The final works will enter the collection of the museum and will consist of a series of patterned fabric works stretching to the ceiling of the Victorian Art Gallery and low, colourful sculptures on wheels, all designed to encourage children’s play.
The work will be shown regularly over school holidays in the coming years as part of our family activities. Please revisit this webpage for further display dates of the work.
Maria Zahle was born in Copenhagen and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and Royal Academy Schools in London.
Maria Zahle has worked on large-scale installations at Frieze Sculpture Park, London; Solo Objects, ARCO, Madrid; and Baltic39, Newcastle. Maria is currently working on a large public commission, a site-specific work for a new university building in Aalborg, Denmark.
