Mette Woller is a Danish curator based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her practice revolves around exhibition design as an aesthetic medium and as ideological form. The exhibition designs she creates are physical frames that have the curatorial concept implemented and is a way of insisting on a transparency and awareness of the context in which art is exhibited. Woller is interested in curating as a laboratory platform that re-thinks the curatorial field in relation to a range of media and incorporation of other fields. This is based on a wish to challenge social, political, and economic structures within society as well as within the curatorial field itself by creating alternatives to the white cube. Her curatorial projects are formed within a queer perspective in content as well as structure by actively working towards improving gender equality and equality in general by presenting alternative world perspectives.
For two years Mette Woller worked as Chief Curator for Roskilde Festival, Denmark, and is currently working as an art consultant for the Danish Arts Foundation and as an independent curator. Simultaneously, Mette Woller is active in the independent, professional association UKK through the group Curatorial Forum that works to improve the working and financial conditions for curators and the art field in general. Recent curatorial projects include Floating Art – Cry Me A River, Vejle Fjord (Vejle Art Museum), Vejle; The Curves of the World, CHART, Copenhagen; OCEANS BREATHE SALTY, CompleteBody Fitnesscentre, New York.
