Lotte Nielsen’s projects document the living conditions of LGBT people, particularly youths ‘in a unique aesthetic language developed through years of working within the art film genre’. Through an artistic and social policy lens, she aims to facilitate the collection, study, and dispersion of information about the ‘lived experience’ of this demographic. The artist describes her goal as to “contribute to the empowerment of this group of people, who for various social, political and economic reasons are often marginalized or vulnerable”.
Lotte Nielsen has exhibited at The Nikolaj Contemporary Art Center, Copenhagen; Kunstforeningen GL STRAND, Copenhagen; and Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg, among others.
