Lene Kilde creates memorable sculptures inspired by children and their emotions. She finds that children’s body language is their purest form of communication. This is visualized by showing very few body parts, usually only hands and feet, which then are placed in proportion to each other with the use of metal mesh to create an emotion or a simple moment in time. Her intention is to invite the audience to use their own imagination so that they can complete the sculptures and fill in the lines and volume by themselves. The sculptures consist predominantly of concrete, metal mesh and Kilde considers air and viewer imagination as major components of her artworks.
