Short bio:

As an artist, she engages in an array of issues related to contemporary society, most recently with a strong focus on the histories of feminism, education, and conflict. Alongside her practice in video and photography, she participates in collaborative curatorial projects.

Some of her films are characterized by an interest in conceptual investigations of the personal, specifically of the personal within complex enunciative positions when the problems of representing and documenting intimate relations arise.

CV:

From September 2010 she is finishing her MFA at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California.

In 2005 she started her joint BFA/MFA degree at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Denmark.

From August 2004 to June 2005 she studied at Byhøjskolen in Århus, Denmark.
