About Stine Deja
In her works, Deja combines elements of scientific research with pure fiction, in such a way that what is well-known and what is disquieting are merged into each other. In this way she challenges and activates both the knowledge and the imagination of the spectator. Through her art, high-tech is amalgamated with overarching existential and universal themes, opening our eyes to technology’s crucial importance for our existence and for our perspective of the world.
Stine Deja is represented in the Esbjerg Art Museum collection with the video sculpture Crisp(r) Creaturesfrom 2021. She created the work especially for the exhibition Wunderkammer 3 – DNArt which was the final part of the museum’s large-scale, multi-year exhibition and research project Wunderkammer. Her work came into being thanks to inspiration from the advances of DNA research as well as from focusing on the fundamental questions of life: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we headed?
