The Profile of the Visiting Artist Nina Beier

Nina Beier (b. 1975, Aarhus, Benmark) lives and works in Berlin.

Her sculptures and installations deal with both implicit and cultural meaning of objects. She often uses ready-made elements to feature multiple layers in objects and the cultural narratives establishing their value. 

Beier has had one-person exhibitions at the Kunstverein in Hamburg; David Roberts Art Foundation, London; Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp; Kunsthaus Glarus, Switzerland; Nottingham Contemporary, United Kingdom; Mostyn, Llandudno, United Kingdom; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; CCA Wattis, San Francisco and many others. Her performance-installation Anti-ageing was commissioned by Performa 15 and later staged as part of ICA London’s Art Night in 2016. Her work was included in 13th Biennale de Lyon and the 20thBiennale of Sydney.
