Mette Sanggaard

1984
Statement

Mette Sanggaard is a multidisciplinary artist and designer who works with spatial and sentient topics. Her work explores the interaction between humans and objects in relation to their surroundings and architecture. Through performance and staged scenarios she researches how different landscapes and meetings can affect the action of the body. How does one decide to act, move and choose direction and which transferences will arise?

With a background in graphic design Mette works with repetitious motion, systems and graphic scores as a continuous tool in her way of working and laying out visual and audible narratives.

By using physical props, tactile materials and sound she creates playful layouts that invite viewers, observers, guests, passers to interact and participate. A focus through Mette’s work is an interest in memory and movement and how this is layered information in our bodies. She works with constructing separate universes that occupy their own time and space and aims to challenge our everyday routines by creating a space for new paths and traces to happen.
