Iben Toft Nørgård (b. 1979) has been working as a literally cutting edge artist for the past 10 years.
Her striking and often subtle collage-work are the result of a meticulous methodology in which she patiently scavenges through imagery from all imaginable sources.
Looking for the pieces that will make up important details to support the story conveyed by the work, or adding that vibrant tone that by now is Iben Toft Nørgårds trademark.
She often works with a conceptually strict expression yet her works always hold a surprising amount of detail to be discovered by the viewer. A recurring motif and theme is nature, and more often than not, the darker sides of (human) nature. Or explorations of a realm and its inhabitants that lies exactly on the border between our sensible world and the world you'll only discover if you dare let yourself get lost in the mist on your way there
