Tanja Nis-Hansen

Tanja Nis-Hansen’s semi-autobiographical work explores the body's presence amid contemporary capitalism. Encompassing painting, performance and text, the artist’s compositions frequently depict anxious, waiting, resting, ill or non-functioning figures. Nis-Hansen’s work invites viewers to think about exhaustion, illness, bodily maintenance, female labor, heritage and the environment—while also examining the history of painting and the social construction of hierarchies of taste.
