Miriam Kongstad
Mayo 2023

Miriam Kongstad (b. 1991, DK) is an artist based in Berlin and Copenhagen. Expanding from a background in choreography and performance, her practice is anchored in investigations of embodiment and the human body, whilst materializing as images, installations, performance, sculpture, and sound. Her work takes place in a social realm, visually depicting cultural and political structures surrounding the human body, with specific attention to habitual and naturalized movements and their identifications in popular culture. Miriam's work questions how currents and societies are changing bodies and ideals; and how bodies and ideals are changing societies, by exploring the metaphysical, organic, social, and spiritual aspects of inhabiting a body - the extended experience of being flesh.
