In my practice, I explore: What is the contemporary potential of art to articulate the collective mythologies and affects that are so central to human experience?

Performance ‘Fravær’ / The Danish Cultural Institute in Rome / 2021

In my practice, I always want to address the collective space. In a time marked by individualization and insecurity, where we are constantly faced with new crises. This is where my practice comes in, and tries to articulate a profound human experience that is just filled with affect, doubt, care, dreams and cohesion. A practice that states, (instead of commenting on) that we experience through the human body and human collectives, affective and mythological systems.

It is in the process that the artist Mia-Nelle Drøschler is at her best. But it is to enjoy the happiness too
soon, as in it this tale, we will need to start all the way back to a far more less than ‘the good old days’.
We are writing June 17, 2010, and it is not any normal day. It is the day of the highlight of the art calendar
of the International art world: the degree show of the acclaimed London-based art school Goldsmith’s.
It is two o’clock and the doors have just opened. In walk critics, collectors, jetsetters, actors, in short,
everything that can walk and stand in the finer circles of the upper layers of the metropolis, and among
the artstudents is being whispered again and again: ‘Will Saatchi come, will Saatchi come?’
