Henriette Heise

Henriette Heise is a visual artist based in Copenhagen. Heise combines collaborative work with a more introverted studio-based practice. Work in the studio has in the last couple of years been dominated by two characters; The Flanet (the flat planet) and the Depressed Planet – both characters continue to make increasingly exhausted appearances across a wide range of materials. Heise graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in London and has since then co-founded and run several collaborative projects: The Info Centre in London, The Copenhagen Free University, the local TV-station tv-tv and most recently The Studio Whisperer’s Office. After ending 12 years of teaching as a professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2021, Heise is now working on a practice-based postdoc with the title: The Lunatic Future for the Depressed Planet and the Flanet: Learning from the late work of artists who figured out how on earth to keep going.
