Elle-Mie Ejdrup Hansen
Sculptor, member of the Arts Society
Elle-Mie Ejdrup Hansen explores a variety of media ranging from drawing and classic oil painting to large-scale site-specific works that investigate relations between space, technology and people. The outset is often a specific topography and spatiality – be it a characteristic Danish coastline, a field in Western Jutland, a building complex in a socially challenged neighbourhood or a church.
A common denominator in the bigger works is an interest in new technology, such as different types of light, video or new software. Often, the works include collaborations with people from other disciplines, mainly composers and musicians, but also often programmers, interaction designers and tech-specialists. Thus, the works are created in close collaboration with many people and often engage in a dialogue with specific communities and places.
