Ditte Gantriis

Ditte Gantriis Work from her “COMPANY”. “The five large collages are printed on long roller blinds, and all combine both digital images and hand-drawn elements. The blinds have been installed spatially in Green is Gold’s exhibition space – a once inhabited apartment – and are thus separated from their original function. The collages consist of […]

Ebbe Stub Wittrup
