Trine Struwe (b. 1988, Denmark) is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Copenhagen (DK) and London (ÙK).
Motivated by an acute sensitivity to matter, Trine’s practice explores a tension between language and materials. Her work moves between sculpture, photography and drawing and is concerned with the operative, transformative potential of materiality.
