Tina Maria Nielsen * Visual artist *
Tina Maria Nielsen holds an MA from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen (1997). Throughout her practice she has worked with casts and imprints of real objects. The objects are cast into new materials: paraffin, wax, concrete, plaster, rubber, epoxy resin, aluminium and black or polished bronze thereby turning the fragile and temporary things into something much heavier. Fundamentally the translation from one material to another means that the cast object is removed from everyday usability and perception and instead relocated to a much more fluid state between image, process and language. Her works have been shown nationally and internationally. In 2007 she was awarded a three-year working grant from the Danish Arts Foundation and in 2018 she received the Carl Nielsen and Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen’s Award.
Trine Søndergaard * Visual artist *
Trine Søndergaard is a Danish photography-based visual artist who lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her work is marked by a precision and a sensibility that co-exist with an investigation of the medium of photography, its boundaries and what constitutes an image. Layered with meaning and quiet emotion, her works are highly acclaimed for their visual intensification of our perception of reality. In 2000 she was awarded The Albert Renger-Patzsch Prize and has since received numerous grants and fellowships, including a three-year working grant from the Danish Arts Foundation. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions around the world, and is represented in major public collections. She is represented by Martin Asbæk Gallery in Copenhagen and Bruce Silverstein Gallery in New York.
