Louise Hindsgavl ranks as one of the most important Danish sculptors of her generation. Following her recent museum exhibition at Holmegaard Værk, the artist’s most ambitious in scale and complexity to date, FLESH presents 10 allegorical tableaus in which often grotesque, gestural beings negotiate their subjectivity.
Drawing on ancient mythology, folklore, contemporary culture, and recurring motifs from her own microcosm, Hindsgavl explores the unsettling aspects of human nature. From small figurines to intricate tableaux, her tragicomic situations exude both innocence and ominousness, their mesmerising glazes making them all the more captivating.
Louise Hindsgavl (b. 1973) holds an MA in Glass and Ceramics from Design School Kolding, Denmark. Her work has been exhibited widely in and outside of Denmark, and her work has been acquired by New Carlsberg Foundation (DK), The Danish Arts Foundation (DK), Victoria & Albert Museum (UK), and The National Museum of Fine Arts (SE). She has received numerous awards and grants, including The Danish Arts Foundation’s Work Grant, The Prince Eugen Medal and The Honorary Grant from Anne Marie Telmányi, born Carl Nielsen’s Foundation. This marks her fourth solo exhibition with the gallery.
