Presentation/biography

Julie’s artworks to date is largely characterized by being cognizant completed, unconventional, poetic with a humorous approach to concepts such as ethnic and cultural identity. Her artworks problematize the unequal structures of power relations that exist between Greenland and Denmark. Julie is herself of mixed Inuk (Greenlandic) and Danish background. With roots in both cultures, she has an insight into different Inuit identity- and self-perceptions – nonetheless, including the economic and social interdependencies that exists between the two countries, and the inherent impacts on Inuit communities in Greenland; entangled or trapped in a divided identity, and between power and powerlessness. In addition to her curriculum vitae, which includes international exhibitions, recognitions, and position of trust, Julie has alongside her artistic practice published 5 books, and worked with scenography and installations for featured films, theatre plays, and dance performance shows.

Præsentation

Julie Edel Hardenberg er født og opvokset i Nuuk, Grønland. Hun er uddannet billedkunstner fra Den Nordiska Konstskolan i Kokkola, Finland (1995), og Kunstakademiet i Trondheim, Norge (1999), og efterfølgende opnået en MA i Kunstteori og Formidling fra Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi (2005). Julie har desuden gennemgået et semester som Erasmus udvekslingsstudent i Norwich School of Art and Design, England (1998).

Julies værker kendetegnes ved at være gennemført bevidste, finurlige, poetiske med en humoristiske tilgang til begreber som etnisk og kulturel identitet. Hendes værker problematiserer de ulige magtstrukturer der eksisterer mellem Grønland og Danmark. Med hendes baggrund, med rødder i begge kulturer, har hun et indblik i forskellige grønlænderes identitet og selvforståelse – ikke mindst det økonomiske og sociale afhængighedsforhold der eksisterer imellem de to lande og dens indvirkning på grønlænderen; fanget i en delt identitet, mellem magt og afmagt. Foruden lokale og internationale udstillinger, anerkendelser og tillidshverv har hun produceret flere bøger, lavet udsmykninger, frimærker, skabt scenografi og installationer både til spillefilm, teater og danseforestillinger.

Julie var nomineret til Nordisk Råds Litteraturpris i 2006 for sin fotokunstbog: “Den Stille Mangfoldighed”, Milik Publishing. Hun er nomineret til at være en af de mest lovende unge fotografer af Musée de L’Elysée, Lausanne, Switzerland. Hendes bog “ABCT”, Milik Publishing blev i 2007 indstillet til årets bedste bogarbejde af Dansk Forening for Boghåndværk og blev desuden nomineret til Vestnordisk børnelitteraturpris i 2008, samt fik anerkendelse af White Raven Book -International Youth Library. Julie er tidligere nomineret til Liviafondens pris – 2009, Carnegie Art Award – 2012, Anna Norlander-priset – 2013. I 2012 blev hun medlem i Team Culture under Kulturministeriet i Danmark.
