In 2021, Cornelia worked with Creator Projects to develop a series of commissions for two secondary schools in Denmark that offer vocational training and educational programmes in the field of health sciences.
"Glen" stands as a new site-specific mural in the centre of the school's gym in Aarhus. Based on the teaching focus on bodies and physics, the artwork responds to the environment of the SOSU campus with its dynamic combination of colour gradients and warm motifs, carefully measured and executed on the large surface. The painting contributes to daily activities with a sensibility appropriate to the site. In its own way, "Glen" participates in all daily activities and contributes to the vibrancy that characterises the space, encouraging reflection on one's own movement and the way one stands, walks, runs or is simply present in the space.
The second site-specific partner mural, "Slips and Trips", which adorns the staircase, was created especially for SOSU in Silkeborg. The abstract motif of the mural is inspired by the dynamic and essential function of the school's staircase as a place of meet and greet. "Slips and Trips" mimics the carved crooked, colourful steps and body shapes, surrounding the staircase with a humorous parallel universe of imaginary stairs. Baltes' use of deep black paint as fragmented components adds a contrast that gives the work a grace while making it seem abrupt. The work offers a playful intervention in the space and invites the viewer to bring it to life.
