About Amalie Jakobsen
Amalie Jakobsen was born in 1989 in Grenaa (Denmark). She currently lives and works in Berlin (Germany).
Through installation, sculpture and performance Amalie Jakobsen works with form, colour and movement in relation to architecture and the urban structures that surround us. Using a distilled language of combining basic shapes with strong colours and working intensely with surface and depth she produces works, which seeks to activate the viewer in the experience of the work and to highlight the position of our body in relation to it. In working with this strict artistic language Amalie Jakobsen strives to intensity the works expression and their directness on the viewer trying to strip the unnecessary leaving only the essential communication of form, colour, surface, space delivering an emotion and the perception in its purest form.
Amalie Jakobsen is represented by Gether Contemporary.
