Ida Sønder Thorhauge


Ida Sønder Thorhauge (b. 1990, DK) creates artworks where monumental horses and bodies in flower meadows and starry landscapes vibrate in expressive brushstrokes, and stories flow freely from the canvas and the paper. In her work, no one has a patent on gender, expression, or behavior, when Thorhauge examines the many positions and transformations that humans and other creatures move through in a life lived. Her works reflect the great fauvist masters and modernism's depictions of monumental female figures, and they evoke a confrontation and cultural liberation of figures, human and non-human, throughout art history.


Ida Sønder Thorhauge is MA from The Jutland Art Academy in 2016. She has exhibited at art institutions and museums all over Denmark, such as Overgaden - Institut for Samtidskunst, Kunsthal Aarhus, Kunsthal Nord, and at Roskilde Festival and OK Corral. In 2020 she was awarded a spot in The Danish Arts Foundation's career program The Young Artistic Elite and her work was acquired by The Danish Arts Foundation and Rådet for Visuel Kunst.
