Art Hub Residency :

Presentation & conversation : Nanna Starck

27 June 2024 05.00 PM - 07.00 PM
Art Hub Copenhagen Halmtorvet 27, 1700 København V

Join us when AHC resident, Nanna Starck in conversation with authors Ida Marie Hede and Kamilla Hega Holst, dives into the grotesque, transgressive and the taboo as a method in the artistic narrative. The conversation is moderated by art critic and curator, Louise Steiwer.

Based on Nanna Starck's artistic practice and fascination with the abject, the conversation will revolve around the grotesque body and why the extreme is so fascinating. Starck's practice is centered around sculpture and relief, focusing on the sculptural body as a political tool. She uses boundary-breaking scenarios to address topics such as alienation of the body in society, feminism and body positivity.

IDA MARIE HEDE
Ida Marie Hede is a Danish writer, playwright, critic and teacher. She has written eight books and numerous plays.

Her books have been translated into German, English and Swedish, and in 2021 her latest novel Suget eller Vasker du vores fuckfingre med dine tårer was nominated for the Montana Prize and the Politiken Literature Prize.

KAMILLA HEGA HOLST
Kamilla Hega Holst writes original and quirky novels about people who deviate from the norm and have a different desire. Most recently in the novel "386" (2023) about Mai, whose ADHD diagnosis gives her an inner, vibrating restlessness that strengthens her sense of self, but at the same time threatens to destroy the nice home she is fighting to build. Kamilla Hega Holst's books challenge the reader's notion of what is beautiful and normal by giving voice and body to the characters who deviate.

LOUISE STEIWER
Louise Steiwer is an art critic and writer for the magazine Kunstkritikk, freelance curator and a part of the self-organized exhibition space OK Corral.
