The curtain is installed in-between the two conference rooms, creating a textile barrier penetrable by light and air, but not solids. The curtain has been treated with a UV sensitive dye and exposed hanging – in this way capturing light as a 1:1 contact print. The viewer might see the curtain as a form of barrier, separating the two rooms or experience it as augmenting the intimacy of the space behind it.

Materials: UV-sensitive dye on cotton voile, stainless steel wire cable, galvanized wire clamps
Dimensions: Variable

The work consists of bronze casts of soap slivers collected from the female members of my family (my grandmother, my mother, my aunts, my sister and me)

Trine Struwe (b. 1988, DK) is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Copenhagen (DK). Through working with material as imbued carriers of histories, her practice explores the tension between concept and material and the potential it holds. In her work, she is trying to develop a language, based upon the rifts and voids that might arise from (and within) the way we constitute our meaning. It is an attempt to challenge the hegemony that linguistics hold and instead work with the vibrations, oscillations, waves and automatic reactions that continuously flow between us. She is concerned with the interconnected and simultaneous occurrence of human and more-than-human materialities, bodies, and entities.

She graduated with an MA from Royal College of Art in London (UK) in 2020 and with a BFA from Malmö Art Academy (SE) and The Cooper Union in New York (US) in 2016. She recently opened her first institutional solo show at Kunsthal Kongegaarden (Korsør, DK). Previously her work has been shown in contexts such as Lunds Konsthall (Lund, SE), Saatchi Gallery (London, UK), Fold Gallery (London, UK), Obra (Malmö, SE) and Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhagen, DK).
