It is a great pleasure to welcome you to Køppe Contemporary Objects’ new gallery space at no. 2 Nordvangen in Nexø on the Danish island of Bornholm. Throughout the summer months, the gallery presents Danish craft exhibitions with an emphasis on artists and makers from the Nordic countries.

Køppe Contemporary Objects was founded by architect Bettina Køppe, who has extensive experience as curator in the field of contemporary objects.

Køppe cooperates closely with a group of artists who share an interest in the inherent possibilities of materials and the historical qualities associated with traditional crafts and techniques. The artists share a passion for exploring the meaning of objects in relation to function and iconography. Another common feature of their work is their focus on combining tradition with interpretation and experimentation to create works that hold contemporary relevance.
