Mai Misfeldt

AKA HØEGH engelsk udgave


AKA HØEGH has her very own style of expression within Greenlandic and Nordic art – deeply rooted in the vast landscape and dramatic world of myths and legends that is Greenland. She focuses on everyday feelings and the sanctity of nature in a time of major societal changes. She depicts mythical landscapes, dreams and futuristic visions in the light of global warming. She thinks big while staying humble: We only get to borrow the Earth, we’re all just guests in this life. Aka Høegh works with a wide range of styles and media – from brushwork and watercolours to granite sculptures, from etching a steel needle into zinc to paintings and the decoration of entire buildings. She has influenced and inspired Greenland’s art scene more than any other artist, and her art has travelled far and wide beyond the country’s borders.     MAI MISFELDT is a press officer at Nordatlantens Brygge in Copenhagen. She has a joint degree in Danish and History of Art and is a former art and literature critic for Kristeligt Dagblad and Berlingske Tidende. She was a member of the Statens Kunstfonds Projektstøtteudvalg for Litteratur from 2018-21 (the Danish Art Council’s Literature funding body).  Mai Misfeldt spent part of her childhood in Greenland, and Greenlandic art and literature hold a special interest for her.
