Horror Vacui is a collection of new works by the internationally acclaimed ceramic artist Morten Løbner Espersen. It is also the title of his 2012 solo exhibition at Trapholt Art Museum – a monumental presentation creating a dialogue between four series of works: vessels, cylinders, glazed clay tablets and drawings.Horror vacui – the fear of empty space – was originally the name of a style of a classical Greek vase from around 1000 B.C. with intricate decorations covering its entire surface. Morten Løbner Espersen's new series, inspired by the forms of antiquity, marks a shift from the strict geometry that has previously characterised his works. Here his dramatic glazes are met with an expressive answer from the clay.
