I work with text and image in the form of exhibitions, video, audio and books. I am broadly interested in how idea and matter are interwoven entities and this interest has led me to work on diverse subjects such as the Greek sponge divers dancewoven textile as the fabric of the digitaluploading and the colour of ancient sculpture. 

I got my Master of Fine Arts degree from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2015 and my BFA from the same school in 2012. In 2009 I graduated from The Danish Academy of Creative Writing.

My visual work has been shown in Denmark at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, ARoS, The Museum of Contemporay Art in Roskilde and The National Gallery of Denmark among other places, and abroad in Melbourne, London, Leeds, Reykjavik, Riga and Kunstmuseum Bonn in Germany. In October 2021 my 3D film Clay Theory was part of the New Museum Triennial Soft Water Hard Stone.

Since 2010 I have published eight hybrid fiction books in Danish. Three of the titles have been translated into Swedish and/or Norwegian. My novels Marble and Thread Ripper are both translated into English by Jennifer Russell and published by the London based publishing house Lolli Editions in 2020 and 2022.
