Tilde Grynnerup, 1973. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Educated in textile design and specialized in embroidery.
She is a multidisciplinary artist working across different medias such as textile, wood, installation, conceptual, photography, film. The artist choose whichever media expresses her vision the best, and work without limitations. She like to explore. As Meret Oppenheim said “Nobody will give you freedom. You have to take it”.
Having spent a decade writing songs, and another decade working with fashion, Tilde Grynnerup create works of art, combining words and textile. And having grown up with the inherited craftsmanship skills from her carpenter father, woodwork is like family. She work with him in our joint wood workshop by a small forest, where my father lives retired.
When working with wood, the artist alternately work between her wood workshop in the countryside and her studio in the city of Copenhagen. The interaction between the countryside nature and the city, is her perfect balance. Just like the interaction between working with soft materials like textile and hard materials like brass and wood.
Feminism is to Tilde Grynnerup about equality and the freedom of being, and that subject is a constant in her work. Driven by social indignation and a general curiosity about people and life, her artwork usually aim to communicate a thought or a feeling. Something true and profound. She wonder a lot. Creating art gives her relief. Especially when using humor. Hopefully it provides a little relief to others too. We are, after all, not alone.
