Born in 1986, lives and works in Copenhague, Danemark.
The dictionary defines matter as a substance that makes up any body with tangible reality. Nat Bloch Gregersen explores in her installations the liminal states of this reality by playing with the subtle boundaries between material and immaterial, visible and invisible. Matter emancipates from objects to diffuse into space in the form of light emanations, sound waves, vibrating particles. In what appear to be stationary sculptures, everything suddenly turns out to be in constant motion, mutation and transformation. The full and the empty, the solid, the fluid and the gaseous engage in a dance in which limits are blurred, generating a sensory and affective experience of materialities.
Intramural residency, Grant from the Biennale de la Jeune Création Européenne de Montrouge, in partnership with In Extenso.
Opening Friday, April 8th, from 6PM to 9PM
Copenhagen based artist Nat Bloch Gregersen develops an interdisciplinary practice that blurs the boundaries between artistic and scientific research. Working with mediums such as light, sculpture, installation and text, the artist creates tensions between the material, the technical, the scientific and the poetic. Her research is often materialised in series, allowing for latency and experience to influence thought and form alike. Through her practice, she explores the liminal states of matter as well as the subtle threshold between the material and immaterial, the visible and invisible, the tangible and intangible.
In 2019, Nat Bloch Gregersen was awarded the Prix In extenso - Artistes en Residence at the Biennale de la Jeune Création Européenne hosted by the city of Montrouge. As the winner of the prize, she benefited from a residency at Artistes en résidence in Clermont-Ferrand (2021) to produce her solo exhibition “Two blue ones: each an eye and/or” presented at In extenso in 2022.
Her work has recently been shown at Alice Folker Gallery, Copenhagen; Rønnebæksholm, Næstved; Biennale "Interdimensionale 2", Gammelgaard Artcenter, Herlev; Philipp Haverkampf Gallery, Berlin; Den Frie - Center of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen; Kunsthal Aarhus, Aarhus.
