Nanna Abell (DK)
Free Lunch Series (Host)
Nanna Abell is a Danish visual artist who lives and works in Copenhagen. She studied at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2007-13) and has studied Psychotherapy at the Vedfelt Institute (DK) and Olfactory Science at Joya Perfume Studio (US) as well.
Abell produces sculptures and wall works by combining and manipulating materials and images in modes akin to digital alteration of pictures of bodies and objects found through sources like contemporary fashion magazines. By extrapolating such commonplace modes of alteration as an operation and then applying it to physical objects in real space, Abell makes humorous reference to the (absent) body and the forces that try to control our perception of ourselves and others.
