Marie Anine Møller (b. 1980) is a Danish visual artist and curator based in New York. She has a BA (Hons.) in Fine Art Photography from the Glasgow School of Art followed by an MFA in Sculpture from Pratt Institute, New York. Her work integrates sculpture, installation and photography and explores contradictions in materials and social policy issues by questioning fixed states and definitions of value. Møller has previously exhibited at, among others Compass Gallery, Glasgow, CGK Gallery, Photographic Center and Arden Asbæk Gallery in Copenhagen. In America her exhibitions include Upstate Art Weekend and UNTITLED Art Fair, Miami with NYC gallery and event space Beverly's and SPRING/BREAK Art Show, New York with Field Projects.
With the true and false of our everyday life, value and fixed juxtapositions as the mantra her representations and new versions of objects reflect on memory, fragility and what has value in modern society. She sheds light on everyday objects - takes them apart and puts them back together in a new way, to change something while preserving and reusing something. Tirelessly glass knives are put into ever changing grids of figurative sculptures, suddenly becoming an abstract painting. By repurposing knives, she disarms and transforms them into tools, dissecting considerations of law and power. Her work is both bizarre and recognizable, beautiful and terrifying and inspired by the Still Life genre, in French, Nature Morte - here, life becomes static rather than vibrant, and nature dead rather than blossoming.

common attraction to the cinematic glow and warmth of fire - the most fundamental and both life-giving and life-taking tool.

2019 Silver Migration & Porcelain Sea, Dialogue Exhibition w. Nicolai Howalt, CGK Gallery, Copenhagen
The exhibition created a dialogue between absence and presence and explored the medium the artists work with. Howalt's
photographs, made on expired photographic paper, involve neither light nor a camera. Møller's sculptural installations, in which
organic objects break down into the structures in which they are encapsulated, appear as photographs expressed without paper.
