Cecilie Gravesen is a visual artist and curator. Her curatorial projects offer an elastic, discursive space defined through commissioning, film production, gallery exhibitions, consulting, and writing about specific practices. Particular interests are: curatorial strategies for artist engagement with historical archives and heritage sites, postcolonial discourse and the suggestion of transcendence and divinity as critical faculty.
