Tilde Grynnerup, 1973-
Based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Educated in textile design and specialized in embroidery.
I am an artist working across different medias such as textile, wood, installation, conceptual, photography, film.
I choose whichever media expresses my vision the best, and work without limitations. I like to explore.
As Meret Oppenheim said “Nobody will give you freedom. You have to take it”.
Having spent a decade writing songs, and another decade working with fashion, I create works of art, combining words and textile.
And having grown up with the inherited craftsmanship skills from my carpenter father, woodwork is like family. I work with him in our joint wood workshop by a small forest, where my father lives retired.
When working with wood, I alternately work between my wood workshop in the countryside and my studio in the city of Copenhagen. The interaction between the countryside nature and the city, is my perfect balance. Just like the interaction between working with soft materials like textile and hard materials like brass and wood.
Driven by social indignation and a general curiosity about people and life, my artwork usually aim to communicate a thought or a feeling. Something true and profound. I wonder a lot. Creating art gives me relief. Especially when using humor. Hopefully it provides a little relief to others too. We are, after all, not alone.
