Danish artist Mille Kalsmose was born in 1972 in Horsens, Denmark, and holds a masters degree in Contemporary Art and Aesthetics from Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. She is based in New York City and Copenhagen, and was recently dubbed a figurehead of Danish contemporary art. Recently, she has exhibited in Denmark at Horsens Art Museum and ARoS Art Museum, Aarhus, and in Mallorca at CCA Andratx.

Kalsmose’s large-scale installations combine robust and delicate materials in visually and conceptually appealing ways. According to critic Barbara Pollack, “Kalsmose has achieved a perfect balance in her work between the universal and the individual. It is impossible to view her works without discovering an element of identification.”
