Exhibition

Exhibition

Birgit Oestergaard participating in international exhibitions, competitions and events and her art has been selected among the best works from around the world to appear in prestigious exhibitions in Europe and abroad. This part of the artistic work adds new insights, inspiration for new forms of expression and materials and forms the basis for the continuous work for own artistic development. Most of the artist's production has a conceptual basis and refers to the time and the universal circumstances in which it is made and, as such, the artistic production represents a modern practice containing more than the works on display.
 

Conceptual art

Her artistic work is inspired by everyday life and influenced by an underlying critique of modern communication and political systems that seem to overlook the most obvious such as the distribution of common goods and reducing social and economic inequalities. Aggression from culturally and economically excluded groups is not necessarily rooted in the radicalization but radicalization may be the only possible identity of excluded groups in modern multicultural societies.
 

Material awareness

The artistic expression evolves from the artist's extensive knowledge of materials and long-standing fascination with their inherent beauty and individual opportunities - be it discarded objects, various industrially produced textiles and high-tech electrical equipment.  As a rule the selected materials are processed by using textile techniques in a creative, intuitive process leading to the final work.
