THE DANISH CULTURAL INSTITUTE
Installation view / Acrylic on wall / The Danish Cultural Institute / 2016
Mia-Nelle Drøschler’s residency at The Danish Cultural Institute in Rome 2026 bore witness to a remarkable and spontaneous creation. Inspired by her extensive research into site-specific religious paintings gracing the city’s numerous churches, she embarked on a direct response to this rich artistic heritage. The result was a mural that vividly portrayed a natural, organic world where a woman appeared to float amidst exotic birds, all within the framework of apparent chaos that somehow found its own equilibrium. This figurative impossessed a powerful abstract quality, blurring the lines between representation and abstraction.
For a span of a few years, Mia-Nelle’s mural became an integral part of the institute’s ambiance, serving as a thought-provoking testament to her creative journey and the interplay of tradition and innovation. Yet, in a daring performative act, Mia-Nelle ultimately returned to the mural in 2021, choosing to dismantle it, a decision that added an additional layer of artistic narrative to the work and encapsulated the transient nature of artistic expression and experimentation.
