Ida Kvetny (DK)
VR in Contemporary Art (Organizer)
Ida Kvetny is a Danish artist born in 1980. Through virtual reality, Kvetny merges the digital with her works in paint and clay, and thus creates a multimodal visual world. Herein, the unconscious occupies a privileged space, where her intuitive approach to image creation leads to places unreachable by rationality.
She holds a BFA from Edinburgh College of Art and an MFA from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. Since her graduation, Kvetny has received several grants and awards, including The Royal Scottish Academy Painters Prize, The Maclaine Medal, Aage and Yelva Nimb Honorary Scholarship, and Niels Wessel Bagge’s Foundation grant.
She has participated in exhibitions in Denmark at Brandts, ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, Holstebro Museum of Art, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Trapholt museum, Gl. Holtegaard, Thorvaldsens Museum, Nikolaj Kunsthal, CLAY Museum, Den Frie Center for Contemporary Art, and abroad at Ystad Museum of Art (SE), The Museum of Art at Seoul National University (KR), The Torrance Art Museum (US), The Sovereign European Art Prize Exhibition at Sommerset House (UK), The Leroy Niemann Center (US), and Abrons Arts Center (NYC), besides being represented at the VOLTA SHOW in both Basel and New York.
