Nina Beier discusses the central ideas explored in her exhibition European Interiors with Spike Island curator Vanessa Boni.

Exhibition: Nina Beier European Interiors: 21 July to 23 September 2018

Danish artist Nina Beier works with an array of objects that carry particular social histories, from human hair wigs to mechanical rodeo bulls and cigars to luxury soap. By physically challenging these objects in various ways, she investigates how their value is constructed and communicated and reveals implicit power structures.
 
Danish-born and Berlin-based artist Nina Beier has held solo exhibitions at the Kunstverein in Hamburg; David Roberts Art Foundation, London; Objectif Exhibitions, Antwerp; Kunsthaus Glarus, Switzerland; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco.
 
Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Artists Institute, New York; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Swiss Institute, New York; and the Power Station, Shanghai.
 
She has been awarded the Prize of the Böttcherstraße, Arkens Rejse pris and recently her work was included in 13th Biennale de Lyon and the 20th Biennale of Sydney. She is represented by Metro Pictures, NY, Standard (Oslo), Croy Nielsen, Vienna.
