Birgitte works in an unconventional, interdisciplinary manner to combine art, theory and function. Utilizing the vibrant space and surroundings of the City and Landscape, Birgitte exhibits visual art works often focusing on the totality of an environment reflecting all aspects of her art and vice versa.
Holding a Masters Degree in set design from Denmark’s National College of Design in Copenhagen, Birgitte also studied painting and set design at The Berlin University of Arts under Achim Freyer who recently staged The Ring Cycle at the LA Opera.
As a Visual Artist and Set Designer, Birgitte has been involved in numerous projects in theater, short films, videos, performances and gallery exhibitions internationally, also lecturing interdisciplinary set design for experimental theater and performance art, amongst locations such as University of La Verne, CA.
In 2011 Birgittes set design for the staging of The Arsonists at The Odyssey Theater in Los Angeles was nominated as set design of the year in LA by LA Weekly. In 2012 Birgitte was selected from thousands as a finalist in the Saatchi Gallery’s Open Call for Abstract Art. In 2013 she was the Featured Artist at the Downtown Artwalk curated out of Artists from all LA. She was awarded with an Artist in Residency by Robert Wilson at his Watermill Center in NY and as a Scholar in Residence at USC School of Cinematic Arts, in Digital Art.
