Croy Nielsen (AT)

Oliver Croy and Henrikke Nielsen founded Croy Nielsen in Berlin in 2008. In 2017 they relocated to Vienna, where the gallery is situated in a historical building. The program includes several Nordic artists, who had their first gallery exhibitions at Croy Nielsen, such as Marie Lund, Nina Beier, Birke Gorm, and Sandra Mujinga.

Birke Gorm (DK)

Collecting archaic, easily accessible, often accidentally found material such as jute, terracotta, wood, and metal is characteristic of the work of Birke Gorm. Her sculptures convey a raw, appealing immediacy whose multilayered levels of meaning can be decoded upon closer inspection. By re-appropriating domestic labour processes — acts that have historically connoted unpaid work by women — the artist shows the enormous potential, contained in the production and circulation of everyday objects, for the dismantling of patriarchal gender hierarchies.

Birke Gorm (b. 1986, Hamburg — Lives and works in Vienna). Recent solo and duo exhibitions include 'dead stock' at MAK, Vienna (2023); Martina Simeti, Milan (w. Marie Lund); and 'Full stop' at Politikens Forhal, Copenhagen (2021). Upcoming and recent group exhibitions include Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler, Berlin; Museum Sønderjylland, Tønder (both 2023); mumok, Vienna; Schirn Kunsthal, Frankfurt am Main, and Kunsthalle Vienna (all 2022).
