Artist Talk: Tue Greenfort

Tue Greenfort will give an artist talk on Friday, 13 June at 4 pm in HIAP Gallery Augusta. He will speak about his fascination of mushrooms and show some examples of how he has been working with mycology until now.

Tue Greenfort’s (b. 1973 in Holbaek, Denmark, living and working in Berlin) interdisciplinary practice deals with issues such as the public and private realm, nature and culture. Interweaving these subjects with the language of contemporary art, Greenfort formulates an often direct critique of current economic and scientific production practices. Fascinated by the dynamics in the natural world, Greenfort’s work often revolves around ecology and its history, including the environment, social relations, and human subjectivity.

As a participant in dOCUMENTA(13) in Kassel, Greenfort was co-curator of an archive on multi-species co-evolution, The Worldly House. He has had extensive solo presentations at Berlinische Galerie (2012), South London Gallery (2011), Kunstverein Braunschweig (2008) and Secession, Vienna (2007). He has participated in numerous international exhibitions at institutions including Kunstverein Hannover (2011), Royal Academy of Arts, London (2009), Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm (2009), the Fondazione Morra Greco, Naples (2008), Skulptur Projekte Münster (2007) and Witte de With, Rotterdam (2006). Among his publications the most comprehensive, Linear Deflection, was published by Walther König in 2009.

Tue Greenfort is taking part in Dissolving Frontiers, the fifth annual HIAP summer exhibition, which takes a look at questions of ecology, modernity, and contemporary life with an international group of artists.
