Laura Guiseppi (DK)

Laura Guiseppi works within the field of sculpture, using materials such as ceramics, metal, glass, fabric, and plastic. Her work touches upon the representation of the infertile body and various questions surrounding parenthood. Guiseppi’s work focuses on the reproductive organs, medicinal issues surrounding artificial insemination and the use of plastic in packaging materials, kids toys and personal hygiene products. Embracing both natural and man-made aesthetics, the artist traces the close relationship between humans and their environment, from the point of conception, to the reproductive effects of pollutants later in adult life.

Laura Guiseppi (1989, Copenhagen; DK) holds a MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2021). Guiseppi’s work has been the subject of recent exhibitions at: Kunsthal Charlottenborg (DK), Kunsthal Aarhus (DK), Lagune Ouest (DK). Upcoming exhibitions include: Lagune Ouest (DK), CLAY Museum of Ceramic Art Denmark (DK) and The Community (FR). Guiseppi received the Blix Prize for her work Underbelly in 2021.
