Pernille Braun

b. 1978

“My artistic practice is based on abstract investigations and reproductions of specific objects and themes that experiment with new perspectives regarding time, place and matter. I question, seek to understand and challenge our constructed reality and the definitions that form our foundation of understanding.”

Pernille Braun investigates aspects of time, place and matter, which, with a great level of craftsmanship, she explores through the medium of glass. She thrive’s on and at the same time is challenged by elements that are not easy to discern. In this way glass has become an ambiguous factor for her. ‘In my mind, this medium has almost mystical characteristics, which allow for unforeseen occurrences in a process where the material can repeatedly be transformed from soft to hard.’

Braun studied at The Royal Danish Academy of Art, School of Design and gained a Masters degree from the Royal College of Art in London in 2008.


Now sculpting with glass for more than two decades, she has participated in a large number of exhibitions internationally including solo exhibitions in France, Denmark and USA. Her work can be found in the collections of the Danish Art Foundation, Copenhagen; Musée Ariana, Genève; Bornholm Art Museum, Denmark; the Design Museum, Denmark and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Pernille Braun lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
