About

Liv Midbøe´s work takes place in the intersection between concept, process and material. Her background is within ceramics but she has always worked with different techniques as drawing, embroidery, sculpture and installation. Her practice has a phenomenological approach; connecting disparate resources, she explores different subjects of matter, often concerning heritage, origin and identity. The works contain layers of symbols and references. She also take interest in spatial issues which have resulted in several pieces concerning human relation to space.

Midbøe´s works have been exhibited internationally and acquired by, among others, KODE – Bergen Art Museum,
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Norway, Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg, The National Museum/The Museum of Decorative Arts in Oslo and Public Art Agency (Statens konstråd) Sweden.
