PROFILE



I am a Danish material-based installation artist, designer and researcher.
I hold a MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine art, School of Visual Art, a PhD in Architecture and a master
of Science engineering, with specific focus on designing new materials.

I have been exhibiting national and internationally at galleries and museums and in urban spaces
as well done permanent sitespecific art installations, (udsmykningsopgaver).

I have been on several Artist in residencies latest in 2017 invited for a Theodore Randall International Chair at
New York State College of Ceramic Art, NY, USA
and in 2015 half a year at Shangyuan Art Museum, Beijing, China.

I have written articles and books for magazines nationally and internationally
and got Danish Art foundations, among other foundations.

I do site specific, conceptual mixed media installation art and designs, defined
by mixing methods used in fine art, architecture, design and technology.
It is from this versatile background I pose questions and investigate being in the world.

In 2009-2014 I developed, in a funded art-technology project,
a new ceramic technology, specific ceramic glazed concrete,
for urban spaces. My wish was to develop large scale, ultra thin, bendable, ceramic
we even when hanging in urban spaces and based on concrete technologies
want to kiss.
