Jeannette Ehlers (DK)

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 […]

Another part of her installation consists […]

Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt (DK)

Cecilie Ullerup Schmidt Work for Live Art Denmark 2014 “Zoo” for Now and Again Zoo “Zoo” is an original video created for our series of video performances,  “Now and Again”.

In the live moment of the performance an improvised personae is unfolded over two hours. In the repeatable video portrait cut down to twenty minutes this performed subjectivity is edited, shaped and consolidated into a contradictory and tamed portrait of the artist as a young woman.
