About Mette Wincklemann

Mette Wincklemann is a Danish artist. She studied at 1996 – 97 at Academy of Art and Design, Bratislava, Slovakia and at Royal Academy of fine Arts, Copenhagen, Denmark in 1997 – 2003. Abstract non figurative painting has a central role in her artistic practice, but she also makes textile collages, patchwork quilts and flags. Mette writes in her artist statement: In an abstract work, the materials step forward and become a significant part of the work itself. A good painting is conscious of its own physical properties and of the space around it, and inquires into its own existence. Read the full artist statement of Mette Winckelmann at her website.

WE HAVE A BODY – A SOLO EXHIBITION BY METTE WINCKELMANN
December 3rd 2011 – January 29th 2012, Den Frie Center of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, Denmark.

In dialogue with Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art’s architecture, the Danish visual artist and queer woman Mette Winckelmann focuses on tradition, body, gender and queer theory in her recent solo exhibition WE HAVE A BODY.

Mette Winckelmann talks about her solo exhibition in an interview with The Aesthetica magazine. You can read the interview Mette Winckelmann | We Have A Body | Den Frie Centre for Contemporary Art | Copenhagen at the Aesthetica Blog.

I took a few photos, when I visited the exhibition a couple of weeks ago. A series of installation views are available at Mette Winckelmann’s website. The exhibition featured paintings, installations, textiles collages and objects.
