Tue Greenfort

Tue Greenfort puts our body and senses into play in a magnificent and ephemeral scenography on Blåvandshuk Beach, where man's relationship with nature, its scale and components are the focal point. The monumental installation is created on site from materials such as sand and seashells from the beach and integrates into the site's natural cycle as part of the local ecosystem. 


Tue Greenfort is an artistic pioneer in so-called eco and climate art - not only in Denmark, but also internationally. He is concerned with nature's ecosystems and man's use of nature. In his works, he weaves topics such as climate, energy, biodiversity and monoculture together with the language of art and research and formulates a critique of current economic and scientific forms of production. Tue Greenfort works in a wide range of media and forms of expression - from individual works to ecological environments at art institutions and in public spaces in works with pesticides, algae growth and goples. 

Tue Greenfort (1974) graduated from the Funen Art Academy (2000) and Städelschule, Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Frankfurt am Main (2003). He lives and works in Falster and in Berlin.
