Jeannette Ehlers Artist

Jeannette Ehlers’s work is characterized by its experimental nature. Often using image manipulation in her photographic and video-based works, she explores identity and meaning within these changeable terms, in both subtle and immediate ways. Inspired by her own Danish/Caribbean background, she has created cinematic universes that delve into ethnicity and identity, conveying imaginative stories in a visual language that is sharp yet engaging. Her works revolve around big questions and difficult issues, such as Denmark’s role as a slave trading nation, an aspect of Danish cultural heritage that is often glossed over in the country’s historiography.

Jane Jin Kaisen Artist

Jane Jin Kaisen is a visual artist working with film, video installation, photography and performative practices. Born in Jeju Island in South Korea, transnationally adopted to Denmark, and having spent her adult life in-between Europe, the United States and Asia, her practice has unfolded at the junctions of multiple social, cultural and political realities. These contingencies inform her engagement with overarching themes of memory, migration, and translation at the intersection of personal and collective histories and understandings. While each of her art projects is driven by its own aesthetic and discursive inquiry, together they form a multi-faceted and in-depth survey of coloniality, war and militarism by engaging charged transnational histories and unresolved legacies of race, gender, class, cultural encounters and identity.

Maria Flawia Litwin Artist

Maria Flawia Litwin is a visual artist who grew up in both Poland and Australia, straddling the Iron Curtain. She has spent the last 18 years living and working in Toronto. Encounters with communist and consumer ideologies within social and educational structures have made Litwin sensitive to the fluid and shifting nature of belief systems. She is particularly concerned with the way changes in ideology manifest themselves in her figurative and literal environment. Marxism, feminism and humour have greatly impacted her art production. Although trained as a sculptor, Litwin’s work is not medium-specific and takes the form of textiles, data collecting, performance, acting, video, photography, and fiction writing. Continue reading
