Hilde Angel Danielsen

Hilde Angel Danielsen was the first Artist in Residence in S12.


It was in the beginning of the year 2010 and she completed her residency with the exhibition Transparent Tegl. Her concept was on the border between art and architecture. Danielsen exhibited tests, prototypes and sections of bigger works, as well as real and virtual images of the many elements set in different contexts. Danielsen had already then gained recognition and interest, both nationally and internationally for her ideas with perforated sculptural brick walls and installations.

Transparent Tegl challenged the conventional idea of what a brick of clay is and what it can be used for.  Part of the concept had earlier been shown at ekwc/Ceramic and Architecture, Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, Nederland 2009, and Code09 in Copenhagen Denmark 2009.

Danielsen is based in Bergen, Norway.  She is a prolific artist, participating in projects both nationally and internationally.

She was recently granted a ten years artist work grant from the Norwegian Arts Council,  giving her the predictable time needed to freely and independently develop her art and ideas for another ten years.  This coincides with the celebration of ten years work with the concept behind «Time goes by». Sustainable art future!

Danielsen is one of 39 artists presented at the 4th Hillview Sculpture Biennale with her large scale outdoors artwork “Time goes by” made of Siberian larch, ready to age beautiful grey patina, built on site: The Hillview Sculpture Biennale, opens 28 April – 27 May.

Danielsen has an ongoing project for the hospital Karolinska Huddingen, in Stockholm, Sweden running until 2019.  During the fall of 2018 she is invited for a 2 months residency at Sculpture Space in Utica, NY, USA. She is also one of the selected artist in a competition for art in public spaces, “Tankeplass”, in Gran, Norway.

Danielsen exhibits her interactive spatial artwork «Pentagon corridors» at Campbelltown Campus, at Western Sydney University Sculpture Award and Exhibition, during  May 4th – June 3rd.
