The works of Petrine Vinje explore how power is articulated through aesthetics in symbols and motifs. Her practice unfolds as a research in visual language and the gap between idea and materiality. In her large scale installations, Vinje focuses on the body as a political subject and its relation to historical dogmas and our memory. Petrine Vinje occasional programs collaborative events and curates as part of her continuing practice of creating alternative histories on temporary platforms, such as the Anatomical Theatre.
