about

Dorte Agergaard’s unconventional angle on life, involves transforming one reality
into another. In doing so, she challenges the convevtional way of looking at our surroundings.

Agergaard photographs nature and everyday objects. She enhances them artistically and then reproduces them via digital printing primarily onto textiles, such as pillow cases, curtains, venetian blinds, duvet covers, etc.

By rearranging images from one context and placing them in another, Agergaard brings a fresh take to interiors and how design is perceived.

Having lived most of her life in Denmark’s cosmopolitan capital, a recent move to the countryside triggered Agergaard’s fascination with nature. Preferring untamed aspects of nature and other realistic motifs, her aim is to create a unique new reality expressed with authenticity.

Agergaard’s designs have been the subject of great attention in the national and international media. Her work has been specially selected for exhibitions appearing in New York, Paris, London, Milan, Cologne and Shanghai.

The company DORTE AGERGAARD was founded in Copenhagen 2008, with support from Danish Crafts, Arts Foundation and the Danish National Bank.
