Ex Biblia

In her work, the Danish artist focuses on the question of identity and authenticity, which she comments on in a tension-rich contrast of surface and content as well as seeing and veiling. With the partial overpainting of the found, not only new images are created but also, the viewer sees something unexpected between seeing and not seeing. A Danish Bible from 1855 with 82 steel engravings was given by Bird Møller as the basis of the first new series. Significant elements of the originals are retouched and / or places are added by means of fine hatching, so that the reading of biblical motifs shifts in the images and allows a new, partly surreal view of the contents of the historical Bible.
