Merete Erbou Laurent
Merete Erbou Laurent graduated with a textile degree from The Jutland Art Academy in 1970 and then studied spatial design at the Aarhus School of Architecture, graduating in 2004. Among her many exhibitions are “Djurslandskaber” at Grenå Kunstforening in 2006, FORMAT in Rundetårn (The Round Tower) in 2001, and “KIC”, Kunsthåndværk i centrum, in 2006-2007. Merete Erbou Laurent often uses paper yarn in her work and incorporates colors in a way that makes the resulting works appear as design objects, as well as works of art. In 2005, she was awarded the travel grant from Ole Haslund’s Foundation, and in 2007 the working grant from The Danish Arts Foundation.
