Hesselholdt & Mejlvang (DK)

Artist Collective

Hesselholdt & Mejlvang are a Danish artist duo who began working as a collective in 1999. Their practice is focused on site-specific, large-scale installations that investigate concepts of collective identity, and how these inform and are affected by socio-political structures. Rooted in extensive research as an integral modus operandi, their work often incorporates performance and active use of the public space. They have exhibited widely in institutions, galleries and public spaces internationally. Recent solo exhibitions include IZOLYATSIA, Kiev, Ukraine; Turku Art Museum, Finland; Uppsala Art Museum, Sweden; SKMU, Norway; Thorvaldsens Museum, Copenhagen, KUNSTEN-Museum of Modern Art Aalborg, Denmark; Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, Denmark; Oslo Kunstforening, Norway; Platform Arts, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Their works have been shown at Manifesta 12, Palermo, Italy; Geological Museum of Mexico City; MMCA Residency Changdong, Seoul, Korea; Tallinn Art Hall, Estonia; ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, Denmark; Copenhagen Contemporary, Denmark; Mumbai Art Room, India; Museumcultuur Strombeek, Brussels, Belgium; Künstlerhaus Bregenz, Austria and The Ski Club Milwaukee, USA.
