Amanda Betz

Amanda Betz er uddannet fra Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi, Arkitektskolen i 2005 og er blevet tildelt den anerkendte VOLA-pris for hendes sidste projekt. Hendes vedhæng Shayk er blevet vist i MoMA-butikken i New York og var på forsiden af ​​MoMA-kataloget i april 2015. Hun er adjunkt ved Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi, Arkitektskolen og har været jurymedlem for de danske designpriser.

Amanda Betz arbejder i krydsfeltet mellem kunst, design og arkitektur, med særlig interesse for lys, rum og spændet mellem to og tre dimensioner. Hendes design har tendens til at afspejle arkitektur som fragmenter af bygninger, og hun har opnået både lokal og international anerkendelse for sin evne til at fange kompleksiteten i en simpel genstand. Hun har en unik eksperimentel tilgang og bruger mønstre og geometriske konstruktioner til at skabe rumlige objekter, der afspejler lys og skygge. For nylig designede Amanda ‘foldet vase’ til Menu og blev udvalgt af Dansk Kunstråd til at deltage i den kuraterede ‘Danish Crafts Collection CC19’, udstillet på Maison et Objet 2015.

Amanda Betz works in the intersection of art, design and architecture, with a special interest in light, space and the span between two and three dimensions. Her design tends to reflect architecture as fragments of buildings, and she has garnered both local and international acclaim for her ability to capture complexity in a simple object. She has a unique experimental approach and uses patterns and geometrical constructions to create spatial objects that reflect light and shadow.
