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.
Køppe Contemporary Objects is placed on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. In the beautiful house at Rønne Harbor, the gallery show five exhibitions a year, as well as a selection of works from the gallery's artists.
Artist and Ceramicist Michael Geertsen's workshop is also at the property and he can be visited during the gallery's opening hours
