Two objects made entirely of black-blue ceramic glaze, each supported by a wooden structure. Each object is created when thick layers of  different glazes are poured into a sharply defined rectangle, and fired at 1280 degrees Celcius. In the kiln the glazes melt, boil and bubble up. A sudden drop in temperature freezes the form.
All is Flux is a radical experiment with enlarging and highlighting the tactile properties of ceramic glaze as a manifestation of the constant state of flux that characterizes the entire physical world. Conventionally, the glaze, even in large sculptures, is merely a thin coating. Here, it takes on a physical format that is larger than the human body. Like a detail that has been blown up or like something seen through a microscope.

Bagsværd church, by Jørn Utzon, is designed as a strict modular system of concrete elements, whose dimensions are repeated in the two glaze objects. However, while the gallery has a stable materiality and is dominated by straight lines, the glaze objects, by contrast appear more dissolved and organic.
The casual placing on wedges emphasised the temporary situation.

The exhibition was one in a series of eight presented in 2017-18 in the church gallery, curated by architect Katrine Borup.
