Mille Kalsmose

Recently called by art critics “a mascot of Danish contemporary art,” Mille Kalsmose is working at the intersection of art, science and technology.

Her artworks conceptualize space, identity and relationships and convey a metaphysical understanding of human existence and our place in the world. In her practice she frequently includes collaborations with neuroscientists, psychologists and sociologists.

Previously, Mille has spoken at The Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference in New York. Her work Cosmic Relations, which includes radio and plasma waves translated into sound, recorded by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft in the vicinity of Saturn between 2002 and 2017, is included in the 14th Media Arts Biennale of Chile 2019, the Horsens Art Museum and Den FrieUdstillings Bygning, Denmark. Later this year she will be collaborating with researchers in Chile at the European Southern Observatory (ESO), which together with its international partners operates the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA). Her project will continue at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

Mille Kalsmose holds a Master’s degree from UniversitatAutònoma de Barcelona, UAB and has studied at the School of Visual Art (SVA) Bio Art Lab, New York. Internationally she has been exhibited at the United Nations Headquarters, New York, USA; Center of Contemporary Art, Andratx, Spain; La Virreina, Centre de Imagen, Barcelona, Cataluña; ITAMI Museum, Hygo, Japan; and Fundacion Valentin de Madarigada, Andalusia, Spain, among others.

Nationally her work has been exhibited in multiple shows, including the 2017 survey exhibition of the most significant Danish artists of the last decade at ARoS, Aarhus Art Museum; Horsens Art Museum; Gether Contemporary; Den Frie UdstillingsBygning; Kastrupgaard Samlingen, and others. Her work is collected in several private and public institutions and has been featured in The New York Times, Kunsten Nu, Magasinet Kunst, CLOT Magazine, Radio 24/7, and national TV such as TV2 and DR News broadcast.
