Signe Boes künstlerische Praxis bewegt sich zwischen dem Abstrakten und dem Wörtlichen, dem Immateriellen und dem Materiellen. In diesem Raum erforscht und dekonstruiert sie spielerisch Systeme und Strukturen, die wir gemeinhin für selbstverständlich halten – technologisch, sprachlich, religiös, gesellschaftlich –, um neue Verbindungen und Bedeutungen zu schaffen. Für Boe ist Sprache nicht nur ein Mittel der Kommunikation, sondern auch ein physisches Material, das so mani-puliert werden kann, dass es Bedeutungen transponiert und transformiert.

Sie arbeitet mit zeitbasierten Medien wie Video, Ton und Performance, aber auch mit Skulptur, Text und Grafik. Sie greift auf Bereiche wie Archäologie, Linguistik, Sozialwissenschaften und Theologie zurück, und ihre Werke tragen oft unzählige Schichten von Bedeutungen, Zeitlichkeiten und Erzählungen – einige expliziter als andere. Indem sie ganz unterschiedliche Phänomene miteinander verknüpfen, unterbrechen die in Boes Werken erzählten Geschichten lineare Chronologien und bringen unerwartete Zufälle ans Licht.

Signe Boe (geb. 1988) ist bildende Künstlerin aus Dänemark. Sie hat einen MFA von der Königlich Dänischen Akademie der Schönen Künste (2017) und wird von der C.C.C. Gallery, Kopenhagen, vertreten.

Signe Boe’s artistic practice unfolds in between the abstract and the literal, the immaterial and the material. In this space, she playfully explores and deconstructs systems and structures that we commonly take for granted – technological, linguistic, religious, societal – in order to forge new connections and meanings. For Boe, language is not only a means of communication, but also a physical material that can be manipulated such that meaning is transposed and transformed.

Boe works with time-based media such as video, sound and performance, as well as with sculpture, text and graphic arts. She draws upon fields such as archaeology, linguistics, social sciences and theology, and her works often carry innumerable layers of meaning, temporalities and narratives – some more explicit than others. By linking together vastly different phenomena, the stories told in Boe’s works disrupt linear chronologies and bring unexpected coincidences to light.

Signe Boe (b. 1988) is a visual artist from Denmark. She holds an MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2017) and is represented by C.C.C. Gallery, Copenhagen.

Works by Signe Boe (b. 1988, Djursland) are appreciated for their acumen, absurdity and underlying humour. They are often presented in the media of extended cinema, and in her sculptural exhibitions she combine past and tradition-heavy techniques such as gravure-printing with present technologies, frequently intertwined by an experimental textual layer. Her works allow the rational and concrete to encounter the absurd and poetic.

Signe Boe is primarily working in an expanded sculptural field where she is unfolding narratives through sculptural elements, surfaces and different temporalities.

The works of Signe Boe take their point of departure in the very strange things that occur to her. Recently she was approached at a party by a person who wanted to offer her a job; she had the perfect profile! Now, this is not something that occurs to her often, since she holds an MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, which usually does not qualify her for anything else than her main occupation: being an artist working in the field of expanded cinema where narratives are being unfolded or supported by various elements of sculptural, flat and time-based character. The position she was offered was to smuggle medical cannabis capsules between two countries. In a way it does fit her well, since she perceives her artistic work to transport information between the rational/concrete, and the absurd/poetic. Furthermore she shares her base between two countries.

Signe Boe, f. 1988, uddannet fra Det Kgl. Danske Kunstakademi i 2017. I Signes Boes værker kan der opstå møder mellem bibelske referencer formidlet og gentænkt i nyt digitalt format. Boe foretager finurlige sproglige undersøgelser, og hendes værk tager greb med vores nuværende teknologi, som gør det muligt, at dialogen bliver meningsløs. Boe anvender sin kunst til at pege på de problematikker og misforståelser, der kan opstå, når digitale medier forvrænger samtalen. Et eksempel på dette komme til udtryk i et nyere værk 2017, Bird Calls, der i form af den velkendte iPhone tager fat i den reelle samtales svære vilkår, særligt når pointer ændrer indhold og form, når de gentages i internettets uendelige univers. I værket er kvindeansigter smeltet sammen med papegøjer, som gentager ord – ord, som fuglen ikke selv forstår eller har skabt, men blot gengiver hvad den har hørt mange gange. Sigen Boe peger på de flokmentaliteter, som både mennesker og dyr er underlagt som en styrende funktion i vores dialog.
