Tore Hallas (DK)
Residency To Go (Resident, 2022)
Tore Hallas is a visual artist who lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
He works within themes of fatness and queerness, and fatness as queerness; religious ontologies and intention; as well as photographic and cinematographic reflection as both theme and method. Working primarily with video, photography and text, as well as teaching.
Personal narratives, and the intersectionalities of violences and positionalities are undercurrents in his works, along with travelling as both physical displacement and symbolic quest, and the inter- action between the world and the othered body and mind.
He holds an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and is the recipient of the Danish Arts Councils career program ‘The Young Artistic Elite’, as well as the Poul Erik Bech Foundations Art Prize and the 15. Juni Foundations Honorary Art Prize, and has exhibited both nationally in Denmark and internationally within Europe and the United States.
