Jeannette Ehlers (DK)

Jeannette Ehlers’ (b. 1973) works revolve around the Danish slave trade in colonial times as one of the main themes. The artist’s own ethnic background, with a Danish mother and a Father from Trinidad, W.I., adds this very important layer to the works. Through digitally manipulated photographs and video installations, she puts The Triangular Slave Trade under the microscope. A very experimental nature generally characterizes Jeannette’s work with digital image manipulation often included in the artist’s photographic and video based works. The artist has studied at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in 2006.

Jeannette Ehlers was invited for Live Art for Børn 2016 in Ålborg with her work “Black Matter”.
