About the Artist
Nille Bech is an autodidact visual art- and performance artist born in 1975 in Copenhagen, Denmark. She emerged as an artist in 2000 and has ever since been investigating various media and tasks: painting, drawing, monotype, teaching, wall decorations, sculpting, speeches, projects with external participants, contemporary dance and performance.
She believes that every medium has its own essence and thereby adds value to her choice of project.
The female body and the female portrait are essential elements in her work. They appear by transcending her own physicality through repetitive actions.
Her focus is on the co-relation between reality and illusion, gravity and weightlessness, love and scarcity. Likewise, she focuses on observing and investigating how inner movements impact the outer expression. It is a way of inducing and actualizing the invisible multiple layers of emotions and beliefs hidden under the surface, which make a safe and non-judgemental room for a dialogue between the viewer, the art and the artist. In her works she gives visibility to the invisible and thereby, “there is light”. By expanding the gaps between emotions, thoughts and actions it is possible to question our beliefs in what might nourish or devour the way we act.
Her works are shown in solo- and group exhibitions in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally, e.g., Gallery Oxholm (DK), MOCA-Beijing (CHINA), Mark Rothko Museum and Art-center (LATVIA).
Alongside her solo-projects she collaborates with other artist with various backgrounds and nationality, e.g., Taneli Törma - Solo-dancer (Finland), Stephen Freiheit- Photographer (Denmark), Constantin Georgescu- Video artist (Germany).
