Mette Woller (DK)
Mette Woller is a Danish curator based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Woller’s practice revolves around exhibition design as an aesthetic medium and as ideological form. Her work focuses on water and its potential for working with watery identities and fluid exhibition spaces. Woller is interested in curating as a laboratory platform that re-think the curatorial field in relation to range of media and incorporation of other fields. This is based on a wish to challenge social, political, and economic structures within society and the the curatorial field itself by creating alternatives to the white cube. Her curatorial projects are formed within a queer perspective in content as well as structure by actively working with improving equality and presenting alternative world perspectives.
For two years, Mette Woller worked as Chief Curator for Roskilde Festival, Denmark, and is currently working as art consultant for the Danish Arts Foundation, art advisor for Art Hub Copenhagen, and as independent curator. Simultaneously, Mette Woller is active in the independent, professional association Curatorial Forum that works to improve the working and financial conditions for curators and the art field in general.
