Participant Profile

Charlotte Thrane


Charlotte Diana Thrane is a sculptor who orchestrates meetings between materials, objects and spaces, exploring the tension between opposing forces such as density & lightness, softness & hardness. Since 2011, she has created a number of large-scale, site-specific art works in cities and landscapes. She has exhibited in solo and group shows in Denmark, UK, France, Austria, Russia, USA, Italy and Sweden and has received numerous awards and grants.

For her Back Apartment Residency, Charlotte planned to create a color palette of walls in the city that had been painted over in order to cover former tagging and graffiti. The walls would not be brought back to their previous condition; instead, new abstract wall paintings would appear. The project represented a new way for Thrane to think about site-specificity and the mobility of art works.
