I am Jette Hye Jin Mortensen and a visual artist.
I was born 1980 in South Korea and grew up in Denmark as an adoptee. MFA graduate from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2010 and receiver of the 3-year work stipend from the Danish Arts Foundation in 2015.
My practice is an experimental weaving of cultural, scientific, performative, meditative and architectural
fields in developing spacious, intergenerational and elastic ways to understand emotional relationships.
In sculpture, video, installations, books, drawings and light art, beginnings for exchange and individuality within collective identities unfolds.
I use conceptual work processes, intertwining classical music, psychodrama theory, permaculture, molecular biology, quantum mechanics, politics and postcolonial feminism in ways that counts in multiple, but oddly interrelated, factors as a holistic approach to initiate and make art in a society.
