Working with stereotypes, commercial gestures, and notions of contemporary life, Ditte Gantriis examines how objects, images of objects, words, and signs are situated in a web of meaning. This multiplicity of signification draws attention to the question of which aesthetics we surround ourselves with, and what emotions we unconsciously invest in them. She works primarily with printmaking and installation–her imagery alternating between abstract and figurative form.
Gantriis has had solo exhibitions at venues such as Toves Galleri in Copenhagen, Peter Amby Gallery in Copenhagen, and Picnic Picnic in Sheffield. She has had duo exhibitions at David Dale Gallery in Glasgow and Die Raum in Berlin. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, Rachel Uffner Gallery in New York, and Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, among others.
