Jette Hye Jin Mortensen is a visual artist.
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.
Born 1980 in South Korea and grew up in Denmark.
She works experimental and conceptually with expansions and stagings of identity, collective being, natural science, performative architecture and spirituality. The artworks often come to life in dynamic synergies between participants, audience and visual non-human languages in nature.
Her project has been described as retro-futurism, performative scenographies, introvert collective storytelling and a healing and calming way to do political and environmental activist thinking.
Exhibits internationally in museums, biennials, festivals, galleries like the 6th Gwangju Biennale, ARoS Museum of Contemporary Art, Overgaden Institute for Contemporary Art, Kyunghee Museum of Art, 1st Nordic Art Triennial at Eskilstuna Art Museum, GI ´08 Glasgow International, The VM Mountain by Bjarke Ingels, U-Turn Quadrennial for Contemporary Art and public commissions like HK20 for the Danish Building Agency.
