Birthe Jorgensen is a Danish installation artist who works with what ever might come into her reach to create worlds of bricolage, assemblage, sculpture, writing, sound and performance. She thinks a lot about how sacred and secular spaces are created in a materialistic, globalised age and about the workings of time, memory, loss and geographical displacement. An artist in her own right, Jorgensen also moves towards other disciplines and has collaborated with archeologists, human geographers, social scientists, linguists, dancers, musicians, writers, sonic artists and performers. She considers this as a way of finding strength in her own sense of displacement.
Jorgensen is currently a Lecturer at Glasgow School of Art and has worked as a visiting tutor at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Iceland Academy of Art. Upcoming and recent exhibitions include: Hosts and Visitors, The Reid Gallery, Glasgow (upcoming) 2016, Delaying Tactics, Studio Pavilion, House for an Art Lover, Glasgow (2015); Riotous exuberant green and the dutiful beating of one’s heart, 1 Royal Terrace, Glasgow (2015); Sedimentation, w. violinist Alison Blunt and artist Jasper Coppes, Platform, Glasgow (2015); and residencies with The Danish Institute in Athens, Greece (2015) and Hospitalfields, Arbroath, Scotland (2014).
