Trine Søndergaard is a photography-based visual artist. Born 1972 in Denmark. Lives and works in Copenhagen. Represented by Martin Asbæk Gallery, Copenhagen, and Bruce Silverstein Gallery, New York.
Through her series of hyper realistic photographic portraits, Trine Søndergaard depicts present day women and girls wearing traditional clothing from the Danish island of Fanø. Some have their faces covered by masks of woven cloth, a strude, customarily worn by women on Fanø, in the past, to protect their faces against the elements. Layered with tradition, hidden symbols and forgotten meaning, Søndergaard operates between past and present, bringing attention to a long forgotten part of Nordic cultural history as well as contemporary political debates on the public appearances and rights of women.
