Susanne Nørregård Nielsen, Self-Portrait

“I originally trained as a painter, and over recent years photography has taken an important role in exploring ideas. These are frequently rooted in painting but use other methods and materials to convey the work. My working process is often based on pre-existing artworks, not so much as a ground for interpretation but more as an dialogue and point
of departure.

In this body of work I am interested in playing on Constructivism and its affinity with aviation, and the interrelationship between abstract art, textile and the body.

I reanimated individual paintings by Malevich, flying them in kite form and reconstructed two Suprematist dresses after Malevich, in which I have performed to camera. The original photographs are 60 x 60 cm.

The “Kites and “Self – portrait in Suprematist Dress” are published in Source, the magazine for contemporary photography in Britain, issue 46, spring 2006.” (source:
