Visual artist Anne Louise Blicher. Based in Copenhagen, DK.

Anne Louise Blicher creates site specific works that subvert classical landscape’s ideals of patriarchy and ownership in favor feminist multitude and ecological balance. Blicher’s work seeks to change the static postcard view of landscape by rendering nature as a sensed landscape, an ecology of dynamic parts in complex interaction with their surroundings
(Deric Carner, curator & project manager, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, NYC)
