Cathrine Raben Davidsen
At Market Art Fair 2023 Jacob Bjorn Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Danish artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen, consisting of a new series of oil paintings, shown for the first time at the fair. Throughout her artistic career, the work and practice of Cathrine Raben Davidsen (b. 1972) has gravitated towards the larger existential questions of human life and death. Understanding life as an imminent process of continuous transformation, she explores the essential traits of being human, asking not only how we as humans are connected to each other, but also how these connections extend towards other living organisms and earthly entities. With an elementary curiosity that connects the knowledge of the past with present-day thinking, she proposes to us, through her art, to broaden and diversify our sense of historical continuity.
Cathrine Raben Davidsen lives and works in Copenhagen and Halland. She received her MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Prior to this she studied at art academies in Italy and in The Netherlands. Her work is represented in numerous prominent museum collections and institutions, and she has exhibited widely in Denmark and abroad, worked on extensive commissions and has made set- and costume design for The Royal Danish Ballet. In 2022 she was awarded the new art prize; The Beckett Prize established by the Beckett Foundation and Copenhagen Contemporary, where she will have a major solo exhibition in 2024.
