SHORT BIO:


Matilde Duus (b. 1983, Århus, DK) is a visual artist educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, DK, (2008-2014),  and Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg, (2012). 

Matildes body of work including both wall based and sculptural pieces, all of which are articulations of the
most basic element in her practice; exploring the spatial properties of the two dimensional. Matildes preferred material is glass, often combined with other materials as metal, naturrock, paper or photomaterial.

 

Working with glass allowes Matilde to not only form spatial objects existing in their own right, but to explore the phenomenological nuances of the glass’ transparency and its ability to encapsulate and capture other objects. This interaction between material and motif, between form and subject, is central to her work. The qualities of the material points to the subject matter, which in turn points back to the material. Her work becomes poetic manifestations, or renderings, of these interconnections.



The artists works are represented in the public collections of the Danish Arts Foundation in Denmark and Copenhagen Municipality. 


Public and Site specific works include Banedanmark, Ringsted, Denmark (2020), UCSyd, Kolding, Denmark (2022) and Sydhavnskvarteret, Århus, Denmark (forthcoming)


Matilde Duus is represented by BRICKS gallery, Copenhagen, DK
