Ditte Soria (DK)

Artist

Program

Ditte Soria (b. 1982, Copenhagen) works across media with a focus on drawing and text. In her artistic practice, ideas are placed under thematic umbrellas, which cover distinct logics, methods and materials. They get titles like Foam Arisen X, Millennium Lounge, Sketches for George Zero, Yellow Alert, I Stretches and Goofy Tactics. Common to these projects are questions related to the constitution of an ‘I’, visual language and artistic strategies. She investigates the creation of the artist and the ego as a plastic dimension, and based on existing visual cultures, she redirects layers of meaning by e.g. to use hobby materials, shrink motifs and abstract beyond the figurative.

Ditte Soria works in a number of collaborations and has, among other things, curated the exhibition project and the book publication Motherload with Anna Margrethe Pedersen. She is co-founder of YEARS (artist collective and former exhibition venue), with whom she has exhibited at Den Frie and SMK and created two permanent, public sculptures and a third ongoing.

Ditte Soria’s works have been acquired by the Danish Arts Foundation and the Council for Visual Arts and are included with YEARS in SMK’s collection. She has also written two unpublished novels. She works as acting artistic director of HFKD (House for Art and Design in Holstebro) and lives on Møn.

She is educated from the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna and the Funen Art Academy, from which she graduated in 2011.
