Artists in Residence – Pernelle Maegaard and Nina Maria Kleivan

Nes short-stay residents Pernelle Maegaard and Nina Maria Kleivan from Denmark, talk about their approach and process for their collaborative work:

“Our works are performative works where the intuitive and unexpected play an important role in the more or less repetitive actions, often in desolate nature and human-like surroundings. We work with identity through ambiguity and with an underlying tone of humor as well as melancholy. We use “gender requisites” and work with identity and gender-specific themes and the interaction between our different expressions.”
