Opening Friday, November 17th, from 8PM - 9PM
In a white space, Nanna Rosenfeldt-Olsen uses her body to recreate new systems of mark making. In her performative actions, she brings the imprints of the places she was before to her current location by merging two rectangles of black charcoal together on a white wall in this new space.
Nanna Rosenfeldt-Olsen is an artist (born in Denmark, 1985) currently based in Chicago where she is in the process of taking an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Nanna graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Fashion and Textile from The Design school of Kolding (2010). Nanna explores the duality that lies between the body and the mind through different materials and mediums. In her work, she combines live performance with video, photo and object (both found objects and sculptures) in installations. Fascinated by our responses to the emotional object – things, places, spaces – and the way we attach stories to the object as a result.
