Trine Søndergaard was awarded the The New Carlsberg Foundation’s Artist’s Grant 2017 at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen.
Trine Søndergaard creates works of art that prioritize reflection and give it a visual language. With her photos of traditional regional costumes and black mourning crepe, she highlights the fact that generations before us have shared the same experiences we have today, including grief. Death is another recurring theme, as it must be for an artist like Trine Søndergaard, who undertakes a focused exploration of the core of photography and the freezing of time, and thus life, that defines this medium. Trine Søndergaard is awarded the New Carlsberg Foundation’s Artist’s Grant for her work, which is on an international level and helps develop photography as an art form.
