I will be showing an entirely new video installation at Den Frie’s upcoming exhibition Writings of Bodies <<< We Know It From The Inside >>>. By revisiting the Danish (colonial) archive, the installation will establish a dialogue between past and present, and examen the camera lens, as a historical tool of oppression as well as its subversive qualities. The artwork features text by and voice of the Danish based Trinidadian/ American writer Lesley-Ann Brown.  

Writing of Bodies <<<We Know It From The Inside>>> shows works by 14 danish female artists across generations, and is curated by Dorte Jelstrup, Elisabeth Toubro og Kathrine Ærtebjerg.

It's been a great pleasure to be part of the working group Critical Friends for the past 1 1/2 years. Our work will be leading into the conference Nordic Dialogues, which discusses culture and diversity. This conference is the result of the project "An Inclusive Cultural Sector in the Nordics" (2017-2019), led by Arts Council Norway. How can we make culture more accessible and relevant for culturally diverse groups? For the past three years, this project has searched for new ideas and methods across the Nordic countries. Now, It is time to present the results. Please register here if interested.
